Qi Dragon® Bi Gu Training Program

Bi Gu or Qigong Fasting is a great way for eliminating toxins, healing diseases, losing weight and developing potential functions and wisdom. Bi Gu or Qigong Fasting is an ancient method from the Daoist tradition. It is not simply starving yourself! It is also different from the general practice of fasting. Bi Gu employs Qigong’s Qi cultivation and life preservation methods to enhance one’s capacity of opening to the universal energy or Qi which is nourishing and infinite. Bi Gu is gentle, safe and inspiring. It guides you through the different stages of fasting according to each individual’s needs, energy level and health conditions. You may do periodic Bi Gu or continuous Bi Gu. This practice is an invaluable part in healing and developing your greater consciousness. Qi Dragon has received Bi Gu transmission from the Grandmaster and teaches Heavenly Essence Qigong’s unique Bi Gu methods based on its life science theories and ancient Bi Gu tradtion. Our Bi Gu methods are simple, easy to practice and inseparable from our Qigong life preservation vision.

Bi Gu Three Levels:
Elementary Level Bi Gu: having fruit/fruit juice and water
Intermediate Level Bi Gu: having water only
Advanced Level Bi Gu: having no water

Liping’s rich experience in this practice will serve as a great guidance while you are exploring this new territory.

All you need to know to start Bi Gu practice will be covered in our Level 1 Bi Gu Instructional Course!! We have 4 levels of Bi Gu training which corresponds with Heavenly Essence Qigong formal study.

People who are not suitable for Bi Gu:

  • Extremely severe nerve pain
  • Complete loss of eyesight or hearing
  • Very skinny: adult below 30kg
  • Chronic kidney disease (over 10 years) with high blood pressure
  • Gastro intestinal disease with frequent vomiting blood
  • Severe heart disease or long term use of insulin, epinephrine or TB at the late stage
  • too much fear about not eating food

Note: Obviously during Bi Gu, all alcohol, cigarettes, drugs/medications are not part of the intake. If you for whatever reason can not stop consuming those items, you should not do Bi Gu at this time. Bi Gu with herbal supplements is considered ok and belongs to the primary level Bi Gu. In our training, we emphasize making the best effort of doing pure water Bi Gu to have the optimal benefits.

If you are one of these 7 Kinds of People, you should consider Bi Gu:

  • have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and early stage diabetes

DISCLAIMER: Generally speaking, Bi Gu has tremendous healing benefits. It may not be suitable for some individuals besides the above types of people who we identified. We are teaching this as a life preservation practice and ancient knowledge and are not prescribing this as a cure for all diseases for anyone. It is a student’s sole responsibility to verify with their medical doctor if their condition is suitable for such kind of modality. We assume that you have checked with your doctor when you register for our Bi Gu workshops.

Advanced Qigong Meditation Intensive: Jing Xiu

Prerequisite: Level 3 Formal Study

One of the Qi Dragon® Qigong Advanced Study beyond levels is called Jing Xiu or Meditation Intensives. It is based on the specific teachings from Grandmaster’s Esoteric Teachings on Qigong Meditation called Jing Xiu Mi Yao 静修密要. These teachings were originally given in China topic by topic as 22 separate Qigong meditation intensive retreats from 1997 to 1999 as a preparatory training for the final teaching – Yuan Dun Da Fa. Later these teachings were compiled in the following book called Jing Xiu Mi Yao. Jing Xiu Mi Yao is a book of 12 Chapters that cover different topics on meditation such as meditation for healing various diseases, meditation for collecting hot and cold energy, meditation Q&A, meditation for inner alchemy practice, deviations in meditation and their corrections etc.

Esoteric Teachings on Qigong Meditation: Jing Xiu Mi Yao 静修密要

Jing Xiu means “quiet cultivation or meditation instensives” where students gather to have intensive Qigong meditation practices in a retreat setting. Mi Yao means “secret or esoteric and essential teachings”. These teachings are mostly on Dao cultivation and Nei Dan or internal alchemy.
