Emei Qigong

Emei Qigong is a great treasure-offering to the world of the health practices from the Emei Linji Chan Lineage of Chinese Buddhism. Held in secret for almost 800 years, reserved only for the monastic Chan community, this wisdom tradition has been passed down through an unbroken lineage.  Only in the early part of this centurey, in a historical and revolutionary act of expansive compassion and generosity, have the jewels of understanding health and healing in this tradition been revealed to the world’s lay population. It embraces a comprehensive system of teachings and practices particularly relevant to the challenges of the modern world by promoting physical health and healing, emotional balance, and the development of higher levels of awareness to help awaken to one’s True Nature.

Emei Qigong is taught only by Emei Masters and teachers recognized by Grand Master Fu Weizhong, 13th Lineage Head of the Emei Linji Chan School of Chinese Buddhism. It is unique in that it includes all forms of Qigong yet transcends the limits inherent in each of them—Spiritual Qigong, Medical Qigong, Martial Qigong and Performance Qigong. The highest form of Qigong awakens the understanding of how to, first, skillfully and harmoniously journey through the relative, material world and, second, realize our own True Nature and the nature of the universe. The methods of Emei Qigong unleash one’s natural meta-intelligence—that which exists beyond our mundane level of intelligence—to give rise to the expression of our higher human potential.

What traditions and disciplines does Emei Qigong embrace?

The great wealth of the Emei Lineage, which spans the entire spectrum of human experience, includes powerful practices and knowledge that is both wide-ranging and profound. Emei Qigong incorporates the ancient wisdom of Buddhist and Daoist philosophy and energy skills, medicine, acupuncture, herbalism, fengshui, astrology, extrasensory perception, and the internal science of transformation. The knowledge and practices of the Emei Lineage are well worthy of deep investigation by Dharma practitioners and scholars, medical professionals, scientists, philosophers, and all others who welcome the offerings of great wisdom traditions or seek greater depth in understanding the Universe and how to reduce suffering and increase happiness. The information here focuses on physical and emotional health, and using thinking and behavior to heal the body and maintain health. Many medical practitioners, acupuncturists, physical therapists, massage therapists, counselors, and healers are already incorporating the healing techniques of Emei Qigong into their work.
