Qigong is an ancient Chinese art of self-regulation and self-development that helps people achieve health, longevity and wisdom through conscious work with vital energy that Chinese call “qi.” The practice of Qigong can take many forms, such as movement, breathwork, visualization, etc. Qigong exercises may be different in appearance, but they all have a common goal: to bring about an internal transformation through gaining control over one’s qi.
There are many things we don’t like about ourselves and our lives, things we want to change. We wish we could be healthier. We wish we could be smarter. We wish we could have better relationships, better understanding with other people. Sometimes we are so overwhelmed by our circumstances that we simply don’t know what to do.
According to Qigong theory (and many other spiritual traditions around the globe) vital energy is what stands behind and helps to shape the material world. When we start practicing Qigong we very soon learn it to be true, because we see how things start changing – both within us and around us. We are able to achieve what was unachievable before. We get power to do it. Qi is a fuel that powers our internal engine, gives us a push we needed to transition from one state to another, shift towards stronger health, healthier emotions, better understanding of life.
If there is something in your life you want to improve, Qigong will provide you with means to do it.
