What is Qi?
Qi is the origin and the essence of life. It is the life force that animates all things. Qi and Unconditional Love are always connected, never separate. When we gather Qi, we are gathering Love, the strongest and best medicine.
What is Sheng Zhen?
Sheng Zhen is the highest and most sacred truth. It can be translated into English as "Open Heart" or "Unconditional Love." It is a state of being that can only be understood when the busy mind comes to rest peacefully in the space of an open and loving heart. When the heart is open, the mind naturally calms down, and one automatically enters into the natural state of perfect well-being.
What is Sheng Zhen Gong?
Sheng Zhen Gong is a method of self-healing, often referred to as "the qigong of Unconditional Love." It involves a series of moving and non-moving forms, all designed to remove negative energy or "qi" and gather positive healing energy. The movements and contemplations of Sheng Zhen Gong help re-create that deep sense of inner peace we experienced as small children. As the body softens, and negative emotions are released, one experiences a feeling of perfect harmony with the universe.
Sheng Zhen Gong has three functions. It strengthens the body, calms the mind by removing negative emotions, and opens the heart. With regular practice, one experiences a renewed sense of joy and purpose, a deeper understanding of life, and more compassion for oneself and others.
How Does Sheng Zhen Work?
The practice is comprised of gentle, graceful, healing movements and contemplations that stimulate the body's lifeforce energy (qi), producing a deep sense of inner-peace and well-being. Practicing the slow, rhythmic and symmetrical movements of Sheng Zhen Gong promotes healing unique to each person, and can accelerate other (traditional) healing processes as well. Consistent, dedicated practice harmonizes the body, calms the mind and the emotions, and increases overall confidence, and a general sense of well-being. Ultimately, one can experience a sense of merging with the universe: a feeling of pure, open-hearted Love, acceptance and joy.
