What is Zhineng Qi Gong?

Zhineng Qi Gong is a deeply meditative practice that is used to heal the body and mind, bringing each person into balance with nature. It is a self-healing method that embraces daily practice to overcome unhealthy mental and physical habits.

Zhineng Qi Gong is also a science, a newly emerging one. It is the science of the systems of Qi and human life. Perhaps this will be the most important science to develop in the future, transforming human activity to a higher level of functioning and consciousness.

Based in ancient practices, this profound and new method for healing and reaching higher levels of all human potential was developed by Dr. and Grandmaster Pang Ming in China in 1979. As a medical doctor, he believed that the healing accomplished through western medicine was not complete, so he studied Chinese medicine and became a doctor of Chinese medicine. Realizing, however, that complete healing must ultimately come from oneself, he developed Zhineng Qi Gong and opened the Hua Xia Zhineng Qi Gong Center in China. Between 1988 and 2001, the Center treated over 400,000 students with 185 different diseases. (For more details on Grandmaster Pang’s life and accomplishments, please see Master Liu’s book, Basic Theories and Methods of Zhineng Qi Gong, or his website, LifeQiCenter.com.)

Dr. Pang also set up a research center at Hua Xia, testing the effects of Qi on crop yields in agriculture. There were classes at the Center for students with tumors or cancers, and classes for children, as well as classes to develop “paranormal” abilities in children.
Grandmaster Pang’s lifelong training is unparallelled due to his study of martial arts, and his studies with 18 different Grandmasters in China. There are very few Grandmasters in the world, and to have studied with so many is a rare accomplishment.

Zhineng Qi Gong is a very different Qi Gong for many reasons, but primarily because of Grandmaster Pang’s practice of Organizing the Qi Field. All Qi is a specific type of energy, and everything is made of Qi. Qi is basically information. As humans, we are constantly connecting to Qi fields of different Qi (energy) information. The problem has become, however, that in human life we have lost our connections to the natural, healing sources of energy information. Instead of being connected to the regular flow of life, we are locked in mental habits that connect us with the Qi information of illness and dysfunctionality.

When we Organize the Qi Field, we are consciously connecting to the Qi information of the universe that is healing and promoting of our highest well-being. Zhineng Qi Gong teaches specific techniques of how to Organize the Qi Field for our daily lives. Master Liu has written extensively on this in his article on the Eight Verses ( a short excerpt is included in this newsletter). There are many methods for Organizing the Qi Field, depending on our intention at the moment. However, it is one of the most important elements of Zhineng Qi Gong practice. All students should learn to Organize the Qi Field for their home and families, when waking up in the morning, before a meeting, before an stressful event, etc. When this practice is part of our daily lives, then we are truly in control of our Qi and our lives become balanced.

Zhineng Qi Gong is practised all over the world since the closing of the Zhineng Qi Gong Centers in China in 1999.
