Energy Healing with Spring Forest Qigong
"A holistic system of self-healing exercise and meditation, an ancient, evolving practice that includes healing posture, movement, breathing techniques and meditation." ~ China scholar Ken Cohen
The historical roots of Qigong date back at least 4,000 years to ancient China. The underlying principle, established by Chinese scholars of the period, is that everything in the universe is energy or “Qi.” Qi is the fundamental core of the entire manifest universe, the building block of all matter, the basic energy or force that comprises all particles and animates all living things.
Qigong literally means the study of transforming energy. Qi means energy. Gong means to study to reach mastery, to manipulate, to transform.
|In the western scientific tradition, Albert Einstein was the first to establish this same principle: “Everything in the universe is comprised of dynamic relationships of energy.” Energy cannot be created nor destroyed but energy can be transformed.
The word Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) literally means the study of transforming energy. Qi means energy. Gong means to study to reach mastery, to manipulate, to transform.
Qigong principles form the basis of all Chinese medicine. The concept is that all Qi is intended to flow smoothly and continuously; to be in harmony and balance with the universe. The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” This definition is in keeping with the concept of balance and harmony inherent in the Qigong approach to health and wellness.
Qigong teaches that when the flow of Qi becomes restricted or blocked, physical and/or mental health problems will occur.
| Remove the restriction or blockage; restore the flow of Qi, and the problems can be resolved. The smooth, continuous and harmonious flow of Qi is necessary for optimum health and wellness.
After years of training with many of the most highly regarded Qigong Masters in his native China, Chunyi Lin created a program of Qigong that has simplified the approach. This system is called Spring Forest Qigong.
Master Chunyi Lin’s dream: “A healer in every family and a world without pain.”
