For centuries, the West has focused its energies on conquering the external world and controlling the elements.
The benefits of this pursuit are all around us, in the comforts and conveniences of modern life—but we have lost a great deal along the way. The greatest loss can be seen in how we live: We are no longer in harmony with nature. This disharmony, this separation from nature, is very stressful. The hectic pace of modern life adds insult to injury. It’s hardly surprising, then, that inner peace and a sense of calm elude most men and women today.
Qigong not only restores health—it also restores our harmony with nature, bringing deep relaxation and serenity.
As a result of this separation from nature and the toll that stress takes, most people alive today are unaware of the many innate abilities they possess. Birds know when a storm is approaching. Many animals sense when an earthquake is coming, often hours or days before the temblor strikes. We marvel at the ability of the sea turtles to find their birthplace and of the monarch butterflies to find a particular forest, in each case traveling across thousands of miles. But these activities are simply the result of being attuned to nature.
Qigong is a bridge that makes it possible for a human being to become similarly attuned.
Emei Qigong is an ancient system for health, healing, rejuvenation and spiritual development. It is a complete system, the practice of which encompasses physical forms and exercises, meditation, nutrition, healing techniques and spirituality. It is also possible to simply practice individual elements as needed or desired.
The training combines medical knowledge with understandings from Buddhism, Daoism and the true nature of all things. It provides the advantages of the dynamic-arts training of Daoism and the deep meditation of Buddhism, and it is also closely connected with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Chinese medicine emphasizes balancing and strengthening the body so that it can heal itself. The practices used to meet this end have been used successfully for thousands of years. These practices however are not to be used as an alternative to professional medical treatment. There is no attempt to give any medical diagnosis, treatment, prescription, or suggestion for medication in relation to any diseased state. A medical doctor or psychologist should be consulted for any mental disorders.
Also please alert your practitioner to any changes in your medical condition before future sessions. This would include high blood pressure or pregnancy. Please call before your appointment if you have any questions.
The Emei Qigong training system cultivates both mind and body, in motion as well as in stillness.
Students learn in a graduated, step-by-step manner. The book “The Healing Arts of Emei Qigong” gives an overview of the principles and skills that Emei Qigong teaches. Those who choose to walk its path will find a wealth of information about nutrition, energy healing, herbs, acupuncture, exercise, philosophy, consciousness, and spiritual awareness and attunement.
