The Body is the most profound operating system. It is self-sufficient, self-healing, self-knowing, and self-operating. To understand how the system works, to listen to its alarms and warnings, to maintain its service and not ignore or fight against it is vital. Qigong and all other healing arts aim to learn how to flow with life, to employ the body?s own healing system to obtain its balance and most of all, to allow the body to manifest its most mysterious performance.
Traditional Chinese medicine and the Chinese way of nurturing life is based on the principle of supporting the normal and expelling the Pathogenic.
Yi Gong is one of the highest Taoist Maoshan esoteric practices. Its system includes two aspects, spiritual and physical. The spiritual aspects have not been revealed to the public. The physical aspects include three levels, the spontaneous adjustment, celestial master points the way, and great water fall.
Awareness is the core of Yi Gong practice. Practicing Yi Gong without awareness is not Yi Gong. If you learn the practice and do not develop your awareness, you have lost the essence of Yi Gong.
Yi is mind. Gong is work, skill, method, effort, efficacy, and achievement. Yi Gong is mind training. It is techniques for awareness development. Through skillful techniques and cultivation of one?s mind, one is capable of reaching self-awakening. Self-healing or the appearance of supernatural powers is side-effects along with the body and mind?s awakening. They are not the ultimate goal for Yi Gong. Nevertheless, training one?s mind is a path to self-awakening. Yi Gong is a process of studying, practicing and harvesting. Realization is the result of that cultivation and self-awakening. Words cannot convey the knowing, the cognition, Gnosis or praj??.
