"If you want to be healthy and live to 100, do Qigong."
~Dr. Mehmet Oz
Spring Forest Qigong is based on the simple yet profound understanding that everything in the universe is energy. Many people think of energy in a very limited way. They think of energy as being electricity or the gasoline that powers their car. Electricity and gasoline are indeed forms of energy, but everything in the universe is also a form of energy.
Qigong began and remains a science--the study of how the universe works at its most basic, energetic level.
It all started more than 5,000 years ago when Chinese scholars, studying the workings of the universe, first discovered and established the Eastern scientific principle that everything is energy.
Fast forward a few millennia to the early 20th Century, when a brilliant young physicist named Albert Einstein came to the same conclusion. Einstein established the Western, scientific principle that everything in the universe is based on dynamic relationships of energy. Again, everything is energy. As Einstein also recognized, energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but energy can be transformed.
The ancient Chinese scholars called this universal energy qi or chi (pronounced "chee"). In China, the study and practice of transforming the energy (qi) to live a life of optimum health, wellness, and happiness came to be called qigong. (Qigong has many other facets as well, but it is the healing aspect we are focused on.)
For thousands of years the practice of qigong was a closely-guarded secret revealed only to a chosen few.
Even today, traditional qigong techniques can be very difficult to learn, requiring years of rigid, disciplined practice to develop proficiency. Traditional qigong masters still withhold the most powerful qigong techniques from all but a select few.
After years of dedicated study with some of the finest qigong masters in his native China, Qigong Master Chunyi Lin has taken away the mystery, rigid discipline, and difficulty.
In Spring Forest Qigong he has created a technique that is so simple anyone can learn it, yet it is very, very powerful.
Spring Forest Qigong is a revolutionary approach to the ancient Chinese teachings, revised and enhanced for the 21st Century.
Grand Qigong Master, Chunyi Lin broke from ancient traditions because of his strong conviction that "Qigong is such a powerful tool for healing, the whole world needs to know about it and benefit from it." Indeed, qigong has been called the most powerful healing technique the world has ever known.
"I think Spring Forest Qigong is basically the way much of healing will go over the next 50 to 100 years."
