What is Qigong?
Qigong (Qi Gong/Chi Kung) is the Chinese discipline devoted to development of understanding, awareness and the harmonizing of one’s mind, body, qi (chi) and spirit. It plays a strong part in Chan Buddhism (Zen) and Taoist philosophy, as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Martial Arts.
Qigong has been used extensively in China as part of traditional Chinese medicine, and is included in the curriculum of Chinese Universities. Throughout the world qigong is now recognized as a form of complementary and alternative medicine, with positive effects on diverse ailments.
Qigong practice involves rhythmic breathing, coordinated with slow stylized repetition of fluid movement, and a calm mindful state.
From a philosophical perspective Qigong is believed to help develop human potential, allow access to higher realms of awareness, and awaken one’s true nature.
People practice qigong for many different reasons, including for exercise and recreation, prevention and self-healing, meditation and self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.
As a healing art, Qigong practitioners focus on prevention and self-healing, traditionally viewed as balancing the body’s energy meridians and enhancing the intrinsic capacity of the body to heal.
Ziran Qigong is a progressive set of exercises that retains all the original concepts and benefits associated with traditional Qigong, while using terms and expressions and following a progression of practice that modern people can associate with and understand.
“The main aim of Ziran Qigong is to obtain an understanding of one’s mind and body and the link between the two.”
Our practice of Qigong has been passed down via the Zi Ran Qigong lineage and has been refined through many generations throughout the ages. Master Deming Liu is the inheritor of the Ziran Qigong system, as well as being an active researcher into Qigong.
Ziran Qigong training concentrates and works to develop this link between mind and body. Through Movement of Qigong and Taoist Tranquility Meditation, Ziran Qigong aims to create emptiness and stillness, allows one to drop life’s baggage, cleaning out the unneccessary emotional belongings and attachments, this can develop the inner peace and strength to help deal with day to day stress and heal mental and physical sickness.
There is no beginning or end in movement, There is no beginning or end in stillness, change is instant, Movement is within stillness.
True or false, real or empty,
All actions are spontaneous,
