Qigong and TCM a most ancient art and science,  Since 1990, Qigong has gained solid western scientific evidence of effectiveness where all else had failed to heal a condition.  Qigong is used for promoting health in all walks and ages of life!  

Simply defined: Qigong is A Positive Way of Life - Spiritually, Mentally, and Physically, based on the Taoist Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, not just another series of exercise or meditation.  It can promote health and cure diseases by living right!   Qi is Breath or Oxygen or Vital Life Force, and Gong is Cultivation at the highest order. 

It is the most powerful self healing practice transported from China to our Western Shores...the human being is the most powerful instrument supercharging oxygenation and blood circulation for vital life!.

Qigong is an overall umbrella of thousands of diverse styles including  hard Qi of the Martial Arts, Tai Chi Chuan, and the soft Qi of the Healing styles of  Medical Qigong.  The Conference will exhibit an exciting array of world experts who have expertise with minor to serious death defying illnesses!

Qigong comprises a diverse set of practices that coordinate body, breath and mind based on Chinese philosophy and classical theory. Practices include moving and still meditation, visualization, massage, sound healing and non-contact therapies.Qigong is commonly classified into two foundational categories: 1) dynamic or active qigong (dong gong), with slow flowing movement; and 2) meditative or passive qigong (jing gong), with still positions and inner movement of the breath. From a therapeutic perspective, qigong can be classified into two systems: 1) internal qigong, which focuses on self-care and self-cultivation, and; 2) external qigong, which involves treatment by a therapist who directs or transmits qi.

There are numerous qigong forms. 75 ancient forms that can be found in classic literature and 56 common or contemporary forms which have been described in a qigong compendium. The list is by no means exhaustive. Many contemporary forms were developed by people who had recovered from their illness after qigong practice.

Techniques :

  • Intentional movement:  subtle, flowing balanced style
  • Rhythmic breathing: slow, deep, coordinated with movement 
  • Awareness: calm, focused meditative state
  • Visualization: of qi flow, philosophical tenets, aesthetics
  •  Vocalization and /Sound healing : internal vibration and use of sound for healing

Additional principles:

  • Softness: soft gaze, a calm face
  • Solid Stance: grounded footing, spinal alignment to heaven
  • Relaxation: relaxed muscles, slightly bent joints
  • Balance and Counterbalance: motion over the centre of gravity
  • Unlocking the waist and spine; circular movement

Advanced goals:

  • Equanimity: more fluid, more relaxed and energized at the same time
  • Tranquility: empty mind, high awareness
  • Stillness: smaller and smaller movements, eventually to complete stillness
  • Moving qi with the mind

The most advanced practice is generally considered to be with little or no motion.
