One month before I moved to Cape Town, South Africa, I went to Dortmund in Germany curious, with an open mind and without any previous knowledge, to get to know the Asian relaxation and holistic health method Zhineng Qigong together with about 20 like-minded people.
When at the end of the day the course leader said, “Britta, one day you will bring Zhineng Qigong to South Africa!”, I smiled inwardly. At that time, I did not even know if I would be able to train these exercises really every day!
Only with the CD in my luggage and without any further instructions about this natural energy and self -health care system, I arrived in Cape Town early 2005. Visible successes such as serenity and calmness while we were launching our new company, innovative solutions to meet the challenges of this new start up business with creativity, an improved body awareness and a strengthened immune system, which chased all South African viruses away, soon set in. Until then, it was hard for me to practice meditation at home alone. With Zhineng Qigong, this daily discipline develops amazingly naturally.
So I started to recommend Zhineng Qigong and soon started to teach it myself after completing my 2 years teacher’s training.
Now, for over ten years, I have been working with Chinese Zhineng Qigong Masters and teachers from the West to spread the methods of Zhineng Qigong worldwide.
What does Qigong mean to me?
When I came into contact with Qigong, I thought it was a wonderful way to relieve stress; to do something good for my physical well-being and to promote my inner calmness and peace. Meanwhile, Zhineng Qigong is much more than that. It has become a lifestyle and a daily practice that helps me to be the better version of myself and to express my authentic self. Qigong promotes my life and balance. Qigong helps me to distinguish myself from worldly chaos and not allow it to rob my confidence and trust. Zhineng Qigong has become a journey for me.
A journey inside and to promote and express my entire potential. A journey full of surprises! And also a journey, in which I constantly evolve, learn, grow and go deeper within myself.
