Qigong training is an excellent way to maintain health and vitality, heal your body, calm your mind, and reconnect with your spirit.
Join millions of people who have learned and practiced qigong in its many thousand-year history. Some turtle-shell artifacts conclusively show the art was important at least 7,000 years ago. The Book of Changes (I Ching) is probably the first Chinese text related to Qi and it introduced the concept of the natural energy powers: Heaven (Tien), Earth (Di), and Human (Ren). About 2,000 years ago The "Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine" systematically described qigong practice.
While commonly practiced for its health benefits, its underlying philosophy and practice deal with many aspects of human existence and qigong does raise consciousness in significant respects. With consistent practice, qigong practitioners become sensitive to the internal operations of their bodies at the physical, energetic, and spiritual levels, which in turn helps to reveal the body's place within nature's oneness. Qigong exercises permit us to build up resistance to imbalances and blockages affecting our qi. This sensitivity aids the integration of our complementary yin and yang internal forces within the universal order. Through qigong training, we learn how false this separation of body, mind, and spirit is, as we come to understand qi as the underlying force that integrates the relationship between them and is the essence of our expression and existence.
