Inexpensive, Advanced Qigong Exercises
These inexpensive tai chi qigong exercises belie their quality: step-by-step instructions make them easy to follow. Nevertheless, they are for the more advanced practitioners who possess a solid foundation and know how to control and manipulate their vital energies.
Normally, it is recommended that at higher levels you practice under the guidance and supervision of a qualified instructor or master. Since these advanced ecourses have more inherent risks and dangers, you assume these risks when you embark on any qigong training program without proper precautions.
In any case, it is advisable that you read the Disclaimer before attempting any of the exercises given on this website.
Remember, well-being and safety are of first priority. As with all qigong exercises, you are working with the physical body and mind: every time you practice, the chi energy will flush out toxins from your system. If you overdo on these exercises in any single sitting, you will risk flushing too many toxins and inducing unwanted and risky side effects.
I separate larger ecourses into instalments as a precaution against overly eager students who try to do too much qigong therapy too quickly.
Prior to registering for these ecourses, please read over the course descriptions and prerequisites.

- Daliang Cun Qi Fa (“Amassing Chi“) or Stopped Breath Qigong
One of the most efficient of all qigong exercises in developing the intrinsic chi lifeforce energy. Stopped Breath Qigong amasses a large amount of energy in a just few minutes of practice, at the same time detoxifying and purging the body. Deceptively simple, nevertheless, it is one of the most potent forms of qigong meditation ever practiced!
WARNING: Before you attempt this qigong exercise you should have had sufficient tai chi qigong training, such that you can control your own neidan chi energy confidently and with ease. This is extremely important, since insufficient control can result in injury to yourself.
- Shui Gong, Sleeping Meditation CAD $44.95
Practiced by qigong adepts, this form of meditation has its obvious benefit of saving time while meditating during sleep. Not only would you get a restful uninterrupted sleep, but of all the qigong exercises, Sleeping Meditation is excellent for problem solving, stimulating your creative juices and developing your spiritual energy.
While not a prerequisite, a background in lucid dreaming is also recommended.
- Guanbi Qimen or Closing the Energy Gates CAD $24.95
Unnecessary drainage of chi can lead to excessive fatigue, weakness and a risk to overall health and longevity. Regardless of the cause, closing the energy gates is necessary to prevent further draining of the life force. It is also a prerequisite skill for all qigong healers.
Prerequisites: qigong diaphragmatic breathing technique and a well-developed yi consciousness to channel the chi energy or at least mastery of Yinian Gong Exercises for Cultivating the Yi Consciousness.
- COMING SOON:
Shuqi Zhiliaofa or Psychic or Distant Healing
Qigong healers avoid using their own yuan chi or primordial energy for healing to avoid unnecessary draining of their life force, thereby shortening their own life span. This qigong technique teaches how to safely tap and channel the healing energy from the environment, and how to transfer it without risk to the healer and the person being healed. Applicable for self-healing, as well as distant healing of another person.
Prerequisites: qigong diaphragmatic breathing technique, a well-developed yi consciousness to channel healing energy (see Yinian Gong Exercises for Cultivating the Yi Consciousness), chi-converted healing essence (i.e. jing), and Guanbi Qimen or Closing the Energy Gates.

Ba Gua Taijiquan or Eight Trigrams Tai Chi Chuan
This powerful tai chi form is deceptively easy to master: just a few basic movements that are repeated over and over again, this form can take as little as 15 minutes to complete, or, when properly extended, as long as two hours!
This form is based on the principles of the I Ching with perfectly balanced energies worked out in precision form. Eight Trigrams is similar to the Nine Palaces and Huang Style, in that it has never been recorded in writing, although my master tells me it is one of the first sophisticated forms of tai chi qigong developed in early history.
Out of the several tai chi forms that I have learned, this is probably one of the best qigong exercises for generating large amounts of chi and maintaining perfect balance of the energies.
Prerequisites: qigong diaphragmatic breathing, Qigong Horse Stance, Qigong Bow Stance, Empty Stance, Tai Chi Walk and Yinian Gong Exercises for Cultivating the Yi Consciousness. Also, Loosening Exercises for Tai Chi Chuan and 18 Postures of Tai Chi Chi Kung.
Also highly recommended though not required: Standing Meditation Postures, Rooting Qigong and/or Twelve Treasures of Longevity & Health Preserving Exercises.
WARNING: Do not register for this qigong exercise, unless you have a strong foundation in tai chi qigong. Practicing this tai chi chuan incorrectly could cause serious injury. Please be sure that you are properly trained and that you have developed enough sensitivity to know when you are circulating the chi energy incorrectly.

Jinggong Shiershi or 12 Postures of Qigong Meditation
Twelve qigong meditation postures form this set of qigong exercises meant to establish a foundation for the development, conscious control and manipulation of the intrinsic chi lifeforce. When incorporated in a tai chi qigong training program, practitioners develop suppleness and flexibility in the limbs and torso. Each of the postures are designed to direct the vital chi energy to different areas of the body, building health and stamina.
Prerequisites: qigong diaphragmatic breathing and reverse breathing technique.
Again, let me reiterate, if you have any questions about the qigong exercises or anything else on this website, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I know it is not always easy to train on your own. That is why I provide this online support to facilitate your tai chi qigong training inasmuch as I am able.
