Holistic Health with Master Zhen in Cape Town: “The Psychology of Inner Perceptions, Zhineng Qigong Level 1 and Body & Mind Method

Master Zhen Qingchuan visits South Africa’s beautiful Mother City Cape Town

It’s the first time that Master Zhen Qingchuan visits South Africa and we are absolutely thrilled to welcome him in the Mother City in November 2020.

This is a unique opportunity not only for South Africans but also for international Zhineng Qigong enthusiasts to embark on a journey inside with an experienced Zhineng Qigong Master from Beijing.

Many mental and physical problems are the result of blockages of the very fine Qi of heart and mind. For this reason, the processes of inner perception are also processes of holistic health that arise from within.

It will be very special to experience the Psychology of the Inner Perception and Zhineng Qigong, deepen your knowledge, enjoy and practice – in the powerful Qi-field of Table Mountain in the Cape!

Among other benefits, you will be able to enhance your ability to send and receive information for a state of holistic health. At the same time, there is space to increase your awareness for your mind activities, emotions and habits.

The powerful theory and thoughtful and gentle guided practice creates an environment where you will transform from deep inside into a state of contentment, inner peace and joy. Relaxing and trusting your innate abilities and your full potential evolves naturally. Using the power of your heart and mind to manifest your life’s intentions is not only a possibility but reality.

This Zhineng Qigong Retreat is open to all Zhineng Qigong and Qigong enthusiasts – beginners and advanced students alike – as well as to people who work as Trainers, Coaches, Natural Practitioners, Doctors, Teachers or Therapists.

Master Zhen about his work:

When the mind starts to perceive its own self instead of speculating on the outside world, the world becomes self aware. When the mind withdraws into itself, the subject and object of perspective are unified. Your“True Self” can shine through and you are no longer a slave of character and emotions but their master. Inevitably, you find yourself.

About Zhineng Qigong and The Psychology of Inner Perceptions

Zhineng Qigong is an effective system of methods and tools to achieve holistic health. In a natural way, vital functions of the body are restored, strengthened and improved. In addition, you can reach a high level of life quality while living the life you love.

The „Psychology of Inner Perceptions“ proposes a direct approach observing the internal mental state and process and by that eliminating possible problems from within. As the mind retreats, it takes energy back to refuel itself and becomes more sharp, stable and clear.

When its energy reaches a certain level, the mind will be so sharp, that it can discover, dissolve and eliminate inner marks left by previous moods, events and thoughts. This is the process of discovery and recovery.

According to Zhineng Qigong, the mind is refined Qi, a formless substance. Mental problems are the ill motion of this refined Qi. Thus the process of inner perceiving is the process of holistic health from inside.

One characteristic of the “Lift Qi up Pour Qi Down” method as part of Zhineng Qigong Level 1 is that the mind and Qi integrate into one and you use your mind consciousness to induce Qi. Slow, gentle, relaxed, meditative movements are combined with the mind’s consciousness and visualizations to induce the internal Qi to move outward and external Qi to be absorbed inwardly. This method is very effective to collect and gather Qi. It’s very easy to practice and yet super powerful.

The “Body & Mind method” activates the inner Qi quickly and effectively. Movements may initially be experienced as tense but over time, the movements are more smooth, relaxed and flowing; the mind becomes calm and you start to feel the unity of body and mind from deeply inside. Vitality and strength are significantly strengthened.

The energy flows freely from deeply inside towards the very ends of the body, e.g. tips of fingers and toes. Tension in muscles and joints are dissolved. The body gets stronger and more beautiful. The energy flows harmoniously through the meridian channels. The body is regenerated.

The exercises also strengthen focus and concentration and according to Dr. Pang Ming improve one’s intelligence. If you exercise the Body & Mind method regularly, you will get deeper and deeper into Qigong.

  • Daily exercises and self-healing work under the guidance of Master Zhen Qingchuan
