Zhineng Qigong Wisdom
Zhineng Qigong was created by Dr. Pang Ming, an M.D. and a Doctor of Chinese medicine, and a Qigong Grandmaster. He studied qigong under 19 different Grandmasters, and in 1979 he developed Zhineng Qigong as a result of his search for more powerful ways to help his patients heal.
As Dr. Pang Ming defined, Qigong is a training based on theories of the Holism of life. It is a training that requires the participant to consciously use the mind intent to focus inward to transform, to improve, and to enhance life functions. Mental, posture and breathing adjustments are the extensions of the inward training. It is training which enables the participants to transform natural instinctive activities into conscious activities.
"We cultivate our own life energy through accessing nature's great store of life energy (Qi). This approach produces quick results. But cultivating one's Qi is not the most fundamental; cultivating one's spirit is. Mastery of Qi is really achieved through mastery of consciousness. We use consciousness in a careful, craftsman-like way, to shape our life, to attain our goals. If we use modern terminology to name this process, we call it Qigong... in modern terms, Qigong is the refinement of consciousness to enhance the state of energy in the body. This leads to vibrant health, a harmonious body and mind, and awakened spiritual life." -Dr. Pang Ming
