(In creating this web space as a Wisdom Healing Qigong teacher in training, I have integrated some of my own reflections and experiences with content borrowed from the Chi Center site to help promote awareness of the Wisdom Healing Qigong and the amazing potential for healing and wholeness which is the gift that Master Mingtong Gu invites us to unwrap.

What is Wisdom Healing Qigong?
Qigong is an ancient and revitalized form of energy healing that has developed through more than 5000 years of Chinese history. The energy that animates all life is referred to as “Qi” or Chi (pronounced ‘Chee'). Qi means “life energy” and “gong” means working with the energy or “cultivation of its benefits.” This energy travels naturally through your entire body, awakening and nourishing the more than three trillion cells in your body, optimizing their functioning. As Mingtong so often reminds us, “Where the mind goes, energy flows”.
Wisdom Healing Qigong as taught by Master Mingtong Gu guides you to access this energy of life more deeply through posture, gentle movement, visualization, sound, breathing and conscious intention. Energy is indeed alive and indeed it wants to move, to vibrate, to connect. The more freely it flows, the more alive and healthy we are, body, mind and spirit, and the more happy and joyous.

Mingtong’s teaching emphasizes activating the power of inner self-healing which facilitates the release of chronic illness, while improving health and well-being. Deep awakening and transformation typically arise in this powerful process of healing, engaging all levels of physical, mental, emotional, and soulful healing.
The movements, the sounds/chanting, the visualizations
can be done in any position,
standing, sitting or lying down,
according to each one’s ability, for whatever reason.
As Mingtong says repeatedly,
all you need is “your own best effort”
and the Chi will do the rest!
This ancient practice of Qigong energy healing dynamically helps free up energy blockages, whatever their source, and restore the life energy and creative power within you. The releasing of energy blockages, a key focus of Mingtong’s teaching, thus creates and fosters new, healthier energy patterns, awakening our natural vitality for more energy and more happiness. Mingtong indeed motivates you to come home to oneself and to become the “cause” of one's own happiness and health. I once heard Mingtong being introduced as the happiest person the interviewer had ever met! I second that!
The practice of Qigong allows you to reconnect with the universal energy source within and bring new and vital energy streams into the flow of life and into our very lives drawing us into deeper Oneness with the infinite creative power of the universe that ultimately is the origin of love, compassion, and the source of all healing. With “practice, practice, practice” the result is “a web of positive changes for you, your loved ones, and planet Earth”.
About Mingtong Gu
"Mingtong lives what he teaches, exudes vibrancy and love, supports the empowerment and health of each person and shares his experience and knowledge as a wisdom master." - Bruce Fabric, M.D., Board Certified Psychiatrist
Master Mingtong Gu is an internationally recognized teacher and healer and has taught Qigong to thousands of people in the USA, China, and Europe. He received his training from a variety of Grandmasters in China, including Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong Grandmaster trained in Western Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine who synthesized his profound medical knowledge of the old and new healing sciences into the ancient Qigong practice of self-healing for our modern pragmatic world.
Dr. Pang had founded in the 1980’s what later grew into the world's largest Qigong hospital, a "medicine-less" hospital, the Zhineng Qigong Center, in China. In 1997 Mingtong returned to China to study with Dr. Pang and to train at the hospital. There he observed thousands of cases of chronic and “incurable” diseases being healed.
Witnessing these profound healing experiences inspired his dedication to the teaching and practice of Qigong healing. Through this practice, he recovered from his own chronic conditions and in working with his students he found his life passion, purpose, and fulfillment in this union of spiritual practice and applied healing wisdom.
Though having earlier earned several Masters Degrees while studying in the US, including in Math and The Fine Arts/Media, Mingtong is quick to maintain that the most important mastery is that of oneself, for one’s own self-healing and empowerment and for the good of our entire Planet Earth.
"Master Mingtong Gu has brought a level of transmission of mind-body practice
that is unparalleled in my experience. Since making these teachings available to patients
in my medical practice, they become healthier and happier."
- Brian Bouch, MD, Director of Hill Park Medical Center
"Mingtong is full of vitality, wisdom and skill. He is a real healer,
and the practices he teaches can change your life.”
- Jack Kornfield, Ph.D. co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center
and the author of several bestselling books.
