What is Qigong?
Qigong is officially known in China as the standard medical technique as of 1989, is included in the National Health Plan of China, and is part of the main universities’ programs in China.
Qigong is a spiritual discipline, a therapeutic healing practice, and, mainly, a science of life.
Qigong is the means by which man communicates with the subtle, unseen Universe; it is about how information exchange is done between man and the Universe.
The kind of understanding created by Qigong belongs to the soul, not to the mind.
The practitioner will go through various experiences that will enable them to understand what energy is, how it can be transmitted to the inner body, how it can be developed, transformed, moved along the energy meridians (and much more than that), how it can be used as therapy or for defense, etc.
Qigong includes both dynamic and static forms. The focus is on alternating the static and dynamic techniques. The dynamic forces increase the energy and strength of the body while the static forces act over the fluids of the body and the inner state.
