I didn’t know what it was, exactly, or even how to spell it, but I KNEW I had to find out more about it. QiGong.

It was the early 1990’s during a Mind-Body-Spirit healing conference I was attending in Boston, due to blatant synchronicity.  The 200+ attendees met at sunrise on a strikingly beautiful grassy field at the edge of massive cliff that overlooked the Atlantic Ocean.  It was summer, sunny, and perfect.

We were led through Yoga, Chanting with 3 Buddhist Monks, Tai Chi, and QiGong.  Back in those days, these practices were just emerging to mainstream America.  I had never heard of Tai Chi and QiGong, yet in doing them I felt the most amazing energy flowing through my body, creating an inner stillness in my mind that I absolutely craved.  I needed more.

It took me 6 years of searching and going from Southernmost Point in Key West, Florida all the way to Anchorage, Alaska to find what I was looking for.  As I experienced the first major health crisis of my life, QiGong found me.

Actually, in looking back, QiGong was a force that had led me to Alaska, impacted my health, and arranged many other details to ensure that our paths crossed in a way that was so meaningful it had 100% of my attention.

Western medicine offered me no help or even hope. Alternative doctors tried and were at a loss.  Acupuncture created a significant shift in my worst symptoms.  And then I started to do QiGong.

I could feel the energy healing my body.  It felt so incredible I started to do it for an hour every morning and an hour each night.  I began to become alive again, and my health began to thrive.  It took 2 years, yet there was daily improvement, and I learned things I needed to know and had no other way of learning.

Does QiGong work? Yes.

How?  You must first cross the threshold and do it for a while.  Then you won’t even need to ask the question which only really has an internal answer.
