What is Heavenly Essence Qigong?
Qigong (Chi Kung), widely known for its healing effects and spiritual empowerment, combines movement, meditation, and breathing to regulate and enhance the flow of the body’s vital energy, improve blood circulation, strengthen the immune system, and calm the mind. Its primary goal is to achieve better health, promote healing for self and others or life preservation. Its highest goal is to realize the spiritual enlightenment or immortality and achieve the “complete emancipation of body and mind”.
Heavenly Essence Qigong integrates the essence of the Daoist Qigong, Medical Qigong, Buddhist Qigong, Martial Qigong and Confucian Qigong and is one of the most comprehensive Qigong systems available. It is well known for its powerful healing effects, comprehensive theories, easy-to-follow practices, successful life science experiments and enlightening spiritual cultivation methods. The system reveals some of the most esoteric Qigong cultivation methods through its easy-to-understand modern language and techniques and makes the orthodox traditions accessible to the general public. Heavenly Essence Qigong emphasizes In-the-world Cultivation Methods (入世修炼法) and inspires the dual cultivation of both the body and the mind (性命双修). Through the progressive formal study of the system students will learn how to expel sick Qi, nourish good Qi, project External Qi (Wai Qi) with dynamic Qigong exercises and perform Qi healing on self and on others with the Te Yi (Special Medicine) or Medical Qigong healing methods. The complete system also includes teachings on Daoist alchemical practices of Microcosmic Orbit, Macrocosmic Orbit, Embryonic Breathing (Tai Xi), Nei Dan (Internal Elixir) and Spiritual Enlightenment Meditation Methods.
Qi Dragon is one of the few places that offers this most comprehensive and advanced Qigong system outside China. This systematic and advanced study of Heavenly Essence Qigong system provides a rare opportunity to receive profound healing and authentic teachings.
