Self Healing Qigong – through self-awareness, opening the meridians and calling the spirit of the inner organs

For Self-Healing of our Body and Mind and to gain a comfortable feeling of Well-Being, we should make use of all different levels of our being. We need to align our body and mind so that they communicate and exchange optimally. 

In this series Teacher Ning invites you to explore ways to greater Well-Being through three different methods that each highlights a different aspect of this Body-Mind-Qi communication for Well-Being.

Healing on the level of self awareness (4 sessions)

Many people – including many Qigong practitioners – have an active thinking mind all the time. When during your Qigong practice your thoughts are still active, part of the Qi flow will go to these thoughts instead of to the body and its’ self-healing abilities.

Healing on the level of self-awareness is focusing on your state of Being, instead of the state of thinking. The state of being is a way to get free from your busy (thinking) mind. By directing your consciousness tis way, you get in touch with the universal energy that helps you to restore a healthy balance.

Developing self-awareness is key to increase your gongfu level.

Healing on the level of programmed nature and calling the spirit (6 sessions)

In Chinese Medicine, the inner organs are key to the state of health of our body. The inner organs philosophy not only is about the physical organs. It is much more about the inner organs Qi and the nature of its function and its’ place within the whole. Each inner organ is related to a different emotion and a so-called ‘programmed nature’. Your nature is programmed by the information you inherited from your parents and experiences in your life.

By ‘calling the spirit’ of the inner organs we wake them up to function again the way they originally were supposed to function. It is a special way to better manage your emotions.

For example the conditioned nature of the stomach is one of resentment. When we (often) resent others, the world or ourselves, we hurt the stomach Qi. On the other hand, when the stomach Qi is weak, we more easily resent others, the world and ourselves. As Qigong practitioners we on the one hand try to be aware of this in daily living (work from outside in), while on the other hand we can make use of the ‘Calling the Spirit’ exercises to make this easier from inside out.

For those who have followed lessons with teacher Ning before; what we now call programmed nature was called conditioned nature earlier on.

Healing on the level of opening the meridians/ Jian He Gong (4 sessions)

A third level on which we can work in the Body-Mind-Qi framework we are, is on the level of the meridians, a set of pathways in the body that function as Qi rivers that connect all different parts, tissues, organs etc.

The Jian He Gong form combines a soft Gua Sha massage with Qigong self-healing techniques. We use a Gua Sha stone to massage along all the meridians in a very gentle way so that blockages can be released and the Qi is invited to flow free. Next to that we use the method of opening some key acupuncture points and learn the body movement of Tiger Foot Steps.
This form is a complete self healing method in itself . It will make you much more sensitive and deepens your other Qiogng practice.

These webinars are suitable for everyone, regardless of your level of health or the degree to which you already practice qigong.

About Teacher Ning

Teacher Ning was born in inner Mongolia in China. He studied with Dr. Pang and graduated at the famous hospital of Huaxia Center. In 1997 he left with a few others after receiving blessings from Dr. Pang. He continued his practice and provided for healings to many. From several masters he was taught different methods. He nowadays lives with his family in Hainan. His daughter is studying Traditional Chinese Medicine at a university in Beijing. For years now he travels to Western countries as well, such as United States of America, Serbia, Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.

Methods: His teaching methods are taught in a gentle, humble fashion. From Pang Laoshi he adopts the Qi field series to build up the Qigong state. He always asks: what is Qigong for you? In this way his students are aware of the intention of practice. From a traditional point of view, the meridian system, channels, vessels, extraordinary meridians and the organs are one complete health system. Qi practice is considered the quintessence of TCM. Four basic elements are part of the methods teacher Ning teaches. One is sound, second is movement, three is awareness, and four is posture. Though there is not really negative or positive since all is illusory, the movements in circles are either releasing too much Qi by turning clockwise, or gathering Qi by circling in, counter clockwise.

Range: The basic knowledge of TCM teaches us that 5 organs (Spleen, Kidneys, Heart, Liver and Lungs) form the basis for health. Any disturbance within and between organs will be balanced again because organs will help and compensate foreach other’s instability. From TCM we know that 5 elements, 5 emotions and 5 organs reflect life between heaven and earth. The intelligence and magnificence of this health system has been described over 3,000 years ago for the first time: Nei Jing, a book written by Qi Bo, an assignment from The Yellow Emperor, Huang Di. The book, when it was written is not entirely sure but still is the classic for TCM students nowadays. Qigong is the heart of many self help practice that arose in the heart of China. Over the last 50 years the revival of Qigong, and the opening of teachings to wider public has unveiled many ‘secrets’ of health in China.
