What is Qigong?
“Qi” means life-force energy and is within everything in existence. Everything is a form of energy or consciousness.
“Gong” means cultivation, practice or skill.
According to ancient Qigong masters, Qi permeates every square inch of the Universe. Unlike oxygen, Qi is everywhere, yet it’s nature is elusive. Quantum physics has verified this energy calling it the “Unified Field of Energy” that is all encompassing. This field of energy animates all of existence. Everyone is receiving energy from the earth and sky unconsciously at all times. Qigong gracefully increases the amount we receive by using our intentional mind (meditation), our breathing, and our physical movements.
The ancient super heroes of our time, the samurai, the ninja, the martial arts masters of the world all practiced the mastery of body, breath and mind. This is the Mastery of Qigong.
It’s time to awaken to our gifts and Qigong is the way to unlock them.
