The Chinese Study of Qigong | SPEAKZEASY

qigong

Over the centuries, a diverse spectrum of QIGONG forms developed in different segments of Chinese society. Traditionally, QIGONG training has been ESOTERIC and SECRETIVE, with knowledge passed from ADEPT MASTER TO STUDENT in lineages that maintain their own unique interpretations and methods. Although the practice of QIGONG was prohibited during the CULTURAL REVOLUTION of the 1960s, it was once again allowed after 1976, and disparate approaches were merged and popularised. Since a 1999 crackdown, practice of QIGONG has been restricted. Many practitioners find QIGONG, with its gentle focused movement, to be more accessible than seated meditation.
