The Chinese word “Qi“, translates as “lifeforce or energy” and the word “Gong“, translates as “working with”.

Therefore “Qigong” simply means, working with lifeforce (energy).

INNER SMILE yellow-smiley-face-1


Release stress and bring the mind and body into harmony

 This meditation is the first and most important exercise used by Taoists. Through the Inner Smile you will become open to yourself through feeling. Feelings are essential and without them Taoist practices become theoretical. Feelings are important to keep you centered and grounded. You will learn this special meditation and become in touch with your organs.


Transform negativity into life force

The Healing Sounds are special frequencies of sounds which create vibrations combined with arm movements, that transform negativity into life force and will keep your emotions in balance. Each organ has positive and negative emotions. Being emotionally not in balance will increase the possibility to get ill. By altering the energy flow through the major organs we begin to have a direct effect on the emotions and the way we feel. These easy to learn exercises are best practiced before going to bed each night. Everyone has negative influences that effect them each day, such as pollution, foods, negative energy from other people etc. Balancing your emotions in your organs each night will allow your body to heal itself and you will have a more restful sleep.


To awaken, circulate and develop one’s life force

The Micro Cosmic Orbit is a circular path up the spine and down the chest connecting with the complete acupuncture meridian systems of the body. Once your Micro Cosmic Orbit is opened, your vital organs can enjoy a free flow of healing energy. Daily practice generates the feeling of personal power and the ability to efficiently carry out our purpose. After each of the Taoist energy practices that you do, it is essential to circulate the energy that you have gained, through your Micro Cosmic Orbit to keep the orbit open and then, properly store this energy in your original force.


Postures which will dissolve blockages and develop your internal power

Formerly secret, powerful internal and external Qi Gong practices useful in Martial arts, healing and meditation. Iron Shirt develops a flexible, “steel-like” body, strengthening and packing Qi into the tendons, ligaments and muscles. These exercises are fantastic for correcting and maintaining good posture. With this you will find it easier to circulate your Qi in your Microcosmic Orbit.
