Click Here to watch a video from our October 2017 Level One Certification Retreat in Albuquerque, New Mexico. During the last 10 minutes of Master Mingtong Gu’s video teaching, I was asked to share part of my personal healing story with a particular focus on Wisdom Healing Qigong and the ultimate total healing of a particular neurological disorder I had had for nearly 30 years. It was indeed a privilege to be asked and a joy to share in the hope that it might offer encouragement to even one other person on their own healing journey.

This special session with Master Mingtong Gu was livestreamed  and shared as a replay. His entire Sunday morning teaching session had focused on Transformation and Healing for conditions such as Cancer, Parkinson’s, Lyme Disease, Auto-Immune Conditions, Neurological Disorders, and moreClick Here for a PDF that elaborates a little more on the Webinar.

 *** What is Wisdom Healing Qigong? ***

***  CLICK HERE  for  a printer-friendly copy
of what I call my GEMS poster highlighting the key components of  Wisdom Healing Qigong.

Qigong itself is an ancient healing technology and revitalized science of energy healing, developed through more than 5000 years of Chinese history.  Energy is alive. Energy wants to move. Energy wants to connect. The more freely energy flows, the more alive and healthy we are, body, mind and spirit, and the more happy and joyous and free!

This energy which animates all life is referred to as Chi, (pronounced ‘Chee’) or spelled “Qi” as in Qigong. Qi means “life energy” and “gong” means working with it and cultivation of its benefits, cultivating our capacity and our confidence in fostering greater health, happiness and well-being.

Wisdom Healing Qigong with its “Qigong for Life” focus guides your mind to access more directly, more deeply and more gently the natural universal energy of life all around us and within us.   As Wisdom Healing Qigong Master Mingtong Gu so often reminds us, “Where the mind goes, energy flows”.

The practice of Wisdom Healing  Qigong itself as taught by Master Mingtong Gu guides you to access this energy of life to calm your mind, re-energize your body and your life by releasing the energy blockages caused by stress.

Through posture alignment, gentle movement, visualization, sound, breathing and conscious intention, the ancient practice of Qigong energy healing dynamically restores the life energy and creative power within you.

A key and constant focus with Mingtong is the releasing of energy blockages, whatever their source, and thus the creating and fostering of new, healthier energy patterns for greater health and happiness and fulfillment of life.

As the underlying causes of life’s challenges are released, you reconnect with the universal source and bring new and vital energy streams into the flow of life. With consistent daily practice, you amplify a web of positive changes for you, your loved ones, and all life on all kinds of levels.

Among the many styles of Qigong, Zhineng (Tszu-nen) Qigong, known as Wisdom Healing™ Qigong, is said to be one of the most powerful. Translated literally, Zhineng Qigong means “Cultivating Wisdom Energy Ability.”

*** About Master Mingtong Gu ***

“Mingtong lives what he teaches, exudes vibrancy and love,
supports the empowerment and health of each person
and shares his experience and knowledge
as a wisdom master.”
– Bruce Fabric, M.D., Board Certified Psychiatrist

Master Mingtong Gu is an internationally recognized teacher and healer, teaching Qigong to thousands of people in the USA, China, and Europe. He trained with  a variety of Grandmasters in China, including Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong Grandmaster trained in Western Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and who himself
studied with at least 19 teachers and Masters.

Dr. Pang synthesized his profound medical knowledge of old and new healing sciences into this ancient Qigong practice of self-healing for our modern pragmatic world.  He had founded in the 1980’s what later grew into the world’s largest Qigong hospital, a “medicine-less” hospital, the Zhineng Qigong Center, in China which has treated over 200,000 patients, with over 185 different illnesses, and with a 95% effective improvement rate.

Click here to read more about how it works,  what the research says,  and overall benefits

 

 

In 1997 Mingtong returned to China to study with Dr. Pang and to train at the hospital. There he observed thousands of cases of chronic and “incurable” diseases being healed.Witnessing these profound healing experiences inspired his dedication to the teaching and practice of Qigong healing.

Through this practice, he recovered from his own chronic conditions of severe asthma, scoliosis, back pain and kidney weakness. In working with his students he found his life passion, purpose, and fulfillment in this union of spiritual practice and healing wisdom.

Mingtong was named Qigong Master of the Year by the 13th World Congress for Qigong and TCM in 2012, and is the founder of the Chi Center, formerly based at EarthRise at IONS in Petaluma, California, and relocated in October 2016 to  an amazing site in Galisteo, NM.

Despite having earlier also earned several Masters Degrees while studying in the US, including in Math and The Fine Arts, Mingtong is quick to claim that the most important Mastery is that of oneself for one’s own self-healing and empowerment and for the healing of our whole Earth.

Master Gu’s teaching emphasizes activating the power of inner self-healing which facilitates the release of chronic illness, while improving health and well-being. Deep awakening and transformation typically arise in this process of healing. Wisdom Healing™ Qigong integrates many forms of traditional Qigong with Eastern and Western medicine. It is a concentrated and powerful system engaging all levels of physical, mental, emotional, and soulful healing.

Through posture, movement, sound, vizualization,  breath and mental concentration, Qigong offers a methodology to rediscover the inner medicine – chi, the vital and natural healing resource within us.  It does more than magnify the exchange of energy between ourselves and nature.  In the process it  enables us to fuse as One with the infinite creative power of the universe that ultimately is the origin of love, compassion, and the source of all healing.

“Master Mingtong Gu has brought a level of transmission of mind-body practice
that is unparalleled in my experience. Since making these teachings available to patients
in my medical practice, they become healthier and happier.”  
– Brian Bouch, MD, Director of Hill Park Medical Center

“Mingtong is full of vitality, wisdom and skill. He is a real healer,
and the practices he teaches can change your life.”  
– Jack Kornfield, Ph.D. co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center
and the author of several bestselling books.

*** What are the benefits of Qigong?  ***

By tapping into this ancient healing technology, you will develop powerful tools for self-healing.
Common Qigong Benefits:

as well as optimizing immune capability
• Enhances the efficiency of the immune system through increased rate and flow of the
lymphatic fluid
• Improves resistance to disease and infection and increases the efficiency of cell metabolism
and tissue regeneration
• Coordinates right/left brain hemisphere dominance promoting deep sleep, reduced anxiety
and mental clarity

*** Chi-TV Global Healing and Awakening

during Covid-19 Pandemic ***

Chi-TV was begun as a daily practice initiated by Master Mingtong Gu for Global Healing and Transformation in April 2020 as Covid-19 spread rapidly around the globe, no one dreaming it would amazingly take us in 2022 … and then into 2023! Although the Pandemic phase of Covid-19 appears to be behind us, the Chi-TV sessions continue to be offered,  now only on Tuesdays, from  9:00 – 10:00MT  (at the Chi Center) which is 12:30 – 1:30 NL time.

These FREE Chi-TV sessions,primarily a mix of Awakening Vitality and Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down, are generally a 1-hour teacher-led practice that begins with a 15-minute Chi Field Setting Meditation and then a 1/2 hour movement practice followed by 5 minutes of  free dance movement to help integrate the energy we have gotten moving and then a 10-15-minute closing integration meditation session. Practices can be done seated or standing, or can be enjoyed, with wonderful benefits, even while simply sitting down or lying down and resting and visualizing the practice, always as your body allows.

The most recent Chi-TV and other recordings for en-JOY-ing as a replay at any time, as your life and time allow, can be found on the Chi Center You Tube Channel under the LIVE menu button. Most of the previously posted  Chi-TV recordings  since 2020 have recently been taken off-line by the Chi Center.

Here  also are two Chi Center Facebook options for finding numerous Chi Center video and video/practice links from over the past few years … some with Master Mingtong and some with others of us as teachers …

https://www.facebook.com/wisdomhealingqigong/   then click “MORE” … then click  “LIVE” …
OR you can go directly to the VIDEOS at https://www.facebook.com/wisdomhealingqigong/live_videos

Also, links to some of the Chi-TV Awaken Vitality and Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down global sessions which I have led can be found below under the respective headings below and will be marked by 3 *** 

*** Chi Field Setting ***

*** Here is a blue link you can click for a personal audio recording I did of the Chi Field Setting Script we have been using in class. It is the standard introductory script.  I would encourage you to use the Chi Field Setting as a meditation every day as life and time allow, before a practice or simply to start your day or  during the day to help focus your energy and thoughts before some important happening.

Here is the blue link to the paper copy of Master Mingtong’s Chi Field Setting Script for easy reference  and copying.

Note: I would strongly encourage you to eventually do a recording of your own you can use … there’s something amazing about our own voice that resonates deep  within us, too, though it may feel a little funny when we listen to ourselves first. Most phones have a Voice Recorder.  Perhaps record part of it and stop and then do some more, as a practice, and then start fresh and do the whole recording. EnJOY the adventure if so inclined to do the recording. You may both surprise and delight yourself!


*** Lachi Practice ***

***    “How to Heal with the Light Ball” is one of the amazingly simple yet powerful healing practices we learn in Wisdom Healing Qigong.   Here is an introductory  teaching and practice  session with Mingtong which can be found on You Tube  (10 minutes)   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4JcTVd9Tv4

*** In this Lachi Practice called Head, Heart and ConcernMaster Mingtong leads a powerful Wisdom Healing Qigong Lachi practice integrating Sound Healing  using Kai Hui. Kai means Opening to the Source Energy of the Universe, Hui meaning Gathering the Energy and bringing it deep inside.  (23 minutes)

*** In this July 2, 2019 video, Haola Lachi Practice on Zhineng Qigong Culture Day, Master Mingtong leads a powerful Wisdom Healing Qigong Lachi teaching and practice session integrating Sound Healing using Haola, meaning All is Well and Getting Better.  (52 minutes)

*** Here is a January 5, 2023 You Tube link and my Facebook link for a powerful Full Moon Lachi Healing session with Master Mingtong Gu on January 5, 2023 to start off the New Year.  Full Moons are a tremendously awesome time for healing on all levels.

*** 100 Day Gong Practice ***

***      Here is a You Tube link for a 20 minute 100 Day Gong Challenge from Mingtong which again you can follow along with or simply watch and drink in for a taste. This was initially sent out to students and teachers 100 days prior to the opening of the new Chi Center in Santa Fe as a way of blessing the new Center in anticipation of its opening … Click here for the link …  100 Day Gong You Tube video

*** Click here for a printable handout I have created as an easy time-line reference to guide you through the various practices on the 100-Day Gong video.


*** Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down Practices ***

*** Here is a link for a 23 minute Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down  practice at the Ocean.
In this video
Mingtong guides us  as we follow along with Ling Ling, his wife, while she does the practice    https://vimeo.com/147811001 .   A wonderful daily practice, or as life and time allow,  for connecting with  deeper energy inside and from the Universe for powerful healing.  Follow along as much as you like, as often as you like without trying to learn the sequence by heart. That will happen automatically over time. The first 4 minutes are a lovely Chi Field Setting leading us into the actual movement.

*** Here is a link for another 35 minute Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down for Love and Peace practice with Master Mingtong Gu

***   Here is a lovely shorter 17 minute Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down   practice with Master Mingtong Gu as he leads a large group from the stage.  Though he is further away, it is still easy to follow along with.

*** Awaken Vitality Practices ***

***   Below are links for two Awaken Vitality guided video practices with Master Mingtong Gu. The first one is a short 8 min demo just meant for watching to get a feel. The longer one is great for a follow-along practice as life and time allow, doing only parts of it if you wish as you are ready.  They both have the full set of the 5 Awaken Vitality movements – Spinal Bone Marrow, Hip Rotations, Crane’s Neck, Bending Spine, Chen Chi, with an opening Chi Field Meditation and a closing as energy “bookends”.

Short Demo and teaching for viewing only …           https://vimeo.com/57718688  8 Min 29 sec
Full Practice and teaching for following along …      https://vimeo.com/60772947  28 min 59 sec

The 8 minute demo, simply for watching only, shows a brief walk-through for 4 of the 5 moves, with wonderful teaching bits from Mingtong.  Great to simply watch over and over again!

The other is a 28 minute full practice video.   We would be learning and practicing the moves in more detail and with more guidance in a regular class so you could do them with optimum care and for optimum benefit. You may enjoy following along with the full video and seeing how they flow one into the other. Simply practice along with the simpler movements – Spinal Bone Marrow, Hip Rotations, Chen Chi – as much as you like.  I recommend mostly watching Bending Spine and Crane’s Neck at first until you get more of a feel for them.  Becomes simpler with practice over time … may feel like a lot at first. Easy does it! One bit at a time! As life and time allow … hopefully some each day and gradually for longer periods of time.

***   Click this Dropbox link to share a wonderful 38 minute  Awaken Vitality guided video practice with Master Mingtong Gu   The practice includes the full set of the 5 Awaken Vitality movements – Spinal Bone Marrow, Hip Rotations, Crane’s Neck, Bending Spine, Chen Chi, with its usual Chi Field Meditation to begin, and then a double Bending Spine practice as an added bonus. Perhaps it may encourage you to repeat the Bending Spine when you practice on your own, noticing what it feels like as it takes you deeper with the repetition.

This practice video was part of a July 25, 2020 Chi Center Course called Practice with the Master which is a registered, paid course continuing until mid-August. In a rare gesture for material from these registered courses, this recording is being made available free by Master Mingtong for enjoying and sharing as widely and as often as you like. It was an amazingly moving moment and I am so excited to be able to share it with you … and you can do the same if you wish. EnJOY it  again and again …

*** CLICK HERE  for  a free full Sound Healing Practice led by Master Mingtong Gu with a focus on Transforming Fear to Love from a live November 2016 practice. Our current, collective experience is not just about one person or party or this moment in history. It is about many things, including the opportunity we have right now for individuals and humanity to come together, learning and healing our longstanding discord and misunderstandings, together.  It is important to remember that none of us is either powerless or without choice. Anything we can do from a place of love will bring more healing, and anything we do from a place of fear will bring the opposite of peace.

*** Dragon Arms Practice ***

*** Dragon Arms is a delightfully AWAKENING experience for your entire body as the energy flows more and more freely! Here are three Dragon Arms video links you can en-JOY practicing with at home, and sometimes with us in class.  Several of you already have experienced these from our sessions at The Lantern or on Zoom.

This first one is a video link for Dragon Arms with the Pure Consciousness Humming sound. It is from a Shift Network Fall 2019 Course promo video. This video link comes with an abundance of info about Master Mingtong’s Pure Consciousness Course the Shift Network was promoting at the time.  My only access to this particular Dragon Arms link is if I send you the whole Promo e-mail. Makes for a very interesting read!

This second one is from my first Wisdom Healing Qigong Shift Network Course with Master Mingtong Gu in 2016.

*** Eating Energetic Healing Foods ***

***   Chi and Food: How to eat energetic healing foods ( and much more!)  (23:11)
More about HOW rather than WHAT we eat! This is especially good if you follow to the end re
how Qigong can help heal any disease  and can also be an amazing support for those taking
medicines or doing treatments such as for Cancer or other major illnesses.  Mingtong invites us
to a new understanding of all food and all medicine as powerful energy.

The movements, the sounds/chanting, the visualizations
can be done in any position,
standing, sitting or lying down,

according to each one’s ability, for whatever reason.
As Mingtong says repeatedly,
all you need is “your own best effort”
and the Chi will do the rest!

   Doing Lift Chi Up Pour Chi Down
at the new Chi Center in Santa Fe
which opened October 2, 2016
as the fruit of the unfolding of Mingtong’s dream
for sharing Wisdom Healing Qigong
for the healing of ourselves,
each other, and all of life
