Wisdom Healing Qigong is a complete integrated system developed to liberate human energy in all dimensions, ultimately opening one's heart to the awakening of consciousness. It also provides an effective path to take charge of one's physical health and empower healthy living. Wisdom Healing Qigong is the translation of Zhineng Qigong which finds its roots in the 7000 year old tradition of folk, shamanic, buddhist, taoist and confucianist traditions - integrating them into a whole with the latest understanding of physiology, psychology and medicine.
Through posture, movement, sounds and visualization, WHQ offers a methodology to rediscover the inner medicine - chi, the vital and healing life force within us. Practicing WHQ you can discover the exchange between yourself and nature, enabling you to become harmoniously connected with the infinite creative power of the universe that ultimately is the origin of love, compassion, and the source of all healing.
Qigong is the oldest form of Chinese medicine and indeed the foundation of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It entails learning to guide the chi through a series of movements and postures, visualization and sounds to activate and awaken the energy in the body, in the organs. The long history of qigong has led to a wide variety of forms, some more mental, others more physical; the various forms of medical qigong, under which WHQ/Zhineng Qigong is generally classified, focus equally on the body and mind.
Zhineng Qigong was developed in the early 1980s by Professor Ming Pang at a time when the Chinese government encouraged the popularization of qigong in an effort to reduce medical costs and maintain good health among the Chinese population. Its exercises are relatively easy to learn and very effective and the methods spread rapidly throughout China. Today it is the world's most widely practised qigong, with upwards of 20 million practitioners globally. Practitioners learn and practice a series of movements that make up a particular 'method' or exercise. The daily practice of these movements increases vital energy and unblocks the energy channels of the body to bring about a free flow of chi. Improved health is the outcome, since all illness is associated with blockages in the flow of chi.
While the first and most obvious benefits of Wisdom Healing Qigong are an improvement in physical health and a sense of well-being, its practice also has beneficial effects on the emotions and mental faculties. Many of its practitioners not only are cured of their illnesses and attain a much better level of physical health but also develop their consciousness, open their heart/compassion and develop a "healing mind" that can benefit both themselves and others.
Master Mingtong Gu trained with Dr Pang at the Medicine-less Hospital and in the mid 1980's moved to the USA teaching and expanding the presence of Wisdom Healing Qigong in the West. In 2016, the Chi Center opened creating a new possibility for healing, a place where people can go and be immersed in the deep healing chi field, learning the practices, being supported by community and generally finding a new paradigm for health and life.
