Qi and Qigong
Qi is a concept from Chinese philosophy which can be translated as the essence of life or life force. When qi is clean and flows freely within your body, life thrives, when it is dirty or stagnant, disease and negativity can take root. Qigong promotes health and well-being by ensuring there is a free flowing exchange of qi between yourself and the universe. Practiced for thousands of years, qigong benefits people of all ages and abilities by improving health and increasing longevity. Sheng Zhen Gong is timeless; it is old, but it is also new. It is old because the truth expressed in it always existed. It is new because it is expressed and imparted in a new way to suit the times.
