Many of the world’s greatest healing practices come to us from thousands of years of experimentation by ancient and modern Qigong masters in China.
These master healers were the original scientists of the subtle body — working with the circulation of Qi (life force energy) for health, longevity, fertility and more.
The Qigong masters’ capacity to heal and focus energy is legendary and eminently practical. Over centuries, they tried innumerable ways of working with the body’s subtle energy fields and culled the techniques that delivered results and prevented disease.
Some of the most important methods involve working to shift stagnant or blocked energy patterns in the body. When we experience trauma or even everyday stressors, we often accumulate such areas of dense, blocked energy, which can persist for decades and lead to disease.
Specific Qigong practices have the ability to shift these blocks or “charge up” areas with diminished Qi to activate organ systems and their self-healing powers. This results in a greater flow of energy throughout your system, which in turn increases immune function and overall good health.
Greater flow is also connected to other forms of abundance, as circulating Qi attracts more energy.
Just a few minutes a day of focused practice can have dramatic effects on your happiness, wellbeing, stress levels and even on long-standing health issues.
While Qigong might initially seem “far out,” it’s actually one of the alternative healing modalities that’s getting the most attention and respect from the Western medical establishment — because it delivers results.
What that means is that there is now a growing body of scientific data supporting the wisdom of this ancient lineage.
In Qigong for Abundant Energy & Health, you have the opportunity to discover essential daily practices from Wisdom Healing Qigong — the specific lineage taught in this program — which will help you take better energetic care of your body and establish a new baseline of health for a long and vibrant life.
You’ll learn about the role of Qi energy and how to connect heart, mind and body to cultivate abundant Qi flow for your health, healing and daily life. You’ll receive specific teachings focused on energy abundance, and develop your own personal Qigong practice for creating this healing flow.
And as you do this, you’ll become more adept at cultivating and nourishing a balanced flow throughout your body so that you can better prevent disease, boost vitality — and even slow aging.
You’ll join thousands of people who are practicing Qigong to live with more joy and less stress and exhaustion. You’ll understand how to start the program and stay motivated to meet the ebbs, flows and challenges of your day.
During Qigong for Abundant Energy & Health, you’ll have the honor of studying with Master Mingtong Gu, one of the pre-eminent teachers of Qigong for over 20 years.
Through The Chi Center, the organization Master Gu built in the West, he has trained thousands of students and teachers to work with Qi in ways that get results.
Over the course of the seven weeks, he’ll illuminate both the philosophical and practical components of working with Qi — and give you simple practices and positions that allow you to connect with the energy that supports and nourishes your body.
You’ll benefit not only from his verbal teachings but also from video-recorded exercises that demonstrate the proper movements, sounds and ways to direct the flow of energy.
These principles of energetic healing can help you address and heal underlying issues that can result in imbalance, disharmony and disease.
There is something intrinsically empowering and beneficial about learning practices of self-care that complement traditional biomedical approaches. Rather than passively waiting to be fixed by a doctor, you can be empowered to effectively work with your personal energy system — a crucial dimension of holistic health.
During the course, you’ll also work with the principle of “integrative oneness,” which allows you to truly experience your consciousness, heart, body and mind as a united whole.
You’ll learn to circulate Qi to weaker parts of your body and deepen your understanding of the energetic connections between your body, emotions and spirit.
When you join Master Mingtong Gu for this special training, you’ll benefit by:
Applying the daily practices of Qigong, you’ll learn to better prevent disease and develop the foundations for lasting, radiant wellbeing. You’ll also experience more connection and inner peace and a feeling of wholeness.
This course provides the joyful enthusiasm of Master Gu’s teachings together with the robust multi-media practice tools — including video, audio and text — needed for every student to start and maintain a personal practice.
To learn this healing practice, you’ll listen to the course presentations and follow along with the guided video and audio practices during class. Your personal practice is further supported by the video/audio practice sessions and materials available 24/7 at the class portal.
No prior experience with Qigong or energy practices is needed to participate in this course. Wisdom Healing Qigong is suitable for all ages and abilities and can be done sitting, standing or lying down. This form is highly supportive and compatible with other energy practices as well, including yoga, tai chi, acupuncture and meditative practices. Comfortable clothes are recommended, but special exercise clothes or mats are not needed.
This course is ideal for those who would like to move their lives into joy and health while releasing stress and exhaustion, low energy and worry, blocked creativity and overwhelm, including:
Join us for a healing and illuminating journey with one of the world’s most esteemed Qigong masters — and receive practices you can use for a lifetime.
And remember, when you heal yourself, you contribute to the healing of our world.
As a special feature of this course, Master Mingtong Gu will present his teaching sessions on video so you can have an even more powerful connection and transmission. These video presentations will be easy to access and will greatly increase your learning and transformation.
Course sessions are on Tuesdays at 5:00pm Pacific
During the 7-week program, Master Mingtong Gu will joyfully guide you through the role of Qi energy and how to connect heart, mind and body to cultivate abundant Qi flow for your health, healing and daily life. Master Gu has selected Wisdom Healing Qigong teachings focused on energy abundance, and will guide you in the steps to explore this powerful Qigong lineage and to create your own Qigong practice for energy abundance.
Each weekly class session will build harmoniously upon the next and will include a pre-recorded video presentation by Mingtong Gu featuring the teachings, demonstrations, and/or guided movements, meditations and visualizations for that week. You can practice along with Master Gu as he demonstrates these practices and return to the recorded version when the class is over to maintain your practice.
Each video presentation will be followed by a LIVE Q&A session with Master Gu — a favorite feature! The Q&A invites students to communicate directly with this renowned master and to receive support for incorporating these teachings into their personal practice.
Practice Component: The deep benefits of Qigong come from practicing the sounds, movements and meditations yourself, so you can feel and experience their transformative effects. Each weekly session will help you to develop a practice of your own. Qigong for Abundant Energy & Health is appropriate for all ages and abilities and does not require special clothing or exercise equipment. If you are unable to attend live, you’ll receive class recordings, transcripts and supplemental materials so you can still experience the full benefits of the program.
How can we cultivate greater energy to heal our body, mind and heart? Master Mingtong Gu will explore the role of opening up our energy, reestablishing our baseline and reshaping our capacity for greater health, happiness and creativity for ourselves and others. Instead of the mind thinking one thing, the body behaving in a contrary way and the heart feeling something altogether different from both, you’ll discover how Qigong provides alignment of and connection with the deep energy flow within and around you. When you access abundant energy, you’re better prepared to live your life and care for your health challenges. This session invites you to start or deepen a personal practice for abundance.
In this module, you’ll:
When we’re discouraged by our health, work or relationships, our ability to connect with our deeper purpose and to focus on it can become clouded.

Your spine not only connects your brain with the rest of your body, it affects the entire energy flow that shapes the quality of your health and increases your joy and sense of peace.
In this module, you’ll discover:
Forgiving yourself and others is essential to your health and happiness. An Inner Smile awakens a deeper level of compassion and loving kindness.

In this module, you’ll discover:
With the pace and stress of modern living, we can lose connection with the life energy that flows around and within us. We can become isolated, disconnected from our inner selves, families, environment and the universal life force. This week, you’ll discover a key practice for circulating Qi (life force energy) by gathering this energy to flow within you and back out to the world. This practice is especially helpful for people challenged by chronic or acute conditions, emotional depletion, and/or who care for others as a caretaker, health professional or parent.
In this module, you’ll:
Aligning your body to digest Qi is valuable for your own health and wellbeing as well as for aiding in the positive transformations of our planet. This week, you’ll be invited to bring discernment into your life, so you can better open to releasing old habits that no longer serve you. Unhealthy choices drain our vitality and block true comfort on a physical and energetic level.
In this module, you’ll:
What would you like to do for family, friends and the world, if you had the energy?

In this module, you’ll:
In addition to Master Gu’s transformative 7-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful training sessions to complement what you learn — and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
This e-book is designed to support this course, providing the relevant teachings, movements and sounds so that students have a great reference. Master Gu has gathered these teachings for this publication to expand your understanding and help you deepen your everyday personal practice. They include step-by-step practice instructions and illustrations for Wisdom Healing Qigong practices focused on energy abundance. When you combine this book with the weekly “Deepening Practices Video and Audio Teachings” included with the course, you’ll have a powerful set tools to support your health, wellbeing and creativity.
We all have busy days filled with lots of information and we need to process. These full days can become overwhelming, causing stress and exhaustion. This video teaching will help you awaken and align your energy throughout your workday. Add this meditation to your phone or computer, so that during your next lunch or midday break, you can listen or watch and instantly renew your energy.
Stress, the loss of of a loved one, challenging interactions throughout your day, cause your heart energy to contract. And when this energy is too contracted, you can experience hatred and discontent. In this teaching video, Master Gu leads us in the Wisdom Healing Qigong sounds for the heart which open the energy channels to awaken happiness. This instruction can be especially helpful to people facing health crises, including depression, Parkinson’s disease and chronic fatigue, for which it is essential to open the heart Qi or energy.
In addition to the class instruction and Q&A time, you’ll receive a dedicated email address where you can reach out to Master Gu and his team of experienced practitioners between class sessions to ask follow-up questions that may not have been answered in the sessions. This greater level of access is a unique opportunity to deepen your knowledge and practice.
This 100-day Gong Chart makes it simple to record every Wisdom Healing Qigong practice and includes tips to stay focused. Gong means “practice of,” and 100 days of dedicated practice is the key to beginning a new journey in cultivating health, happiness and vitality through Wisdom Healing Qigong. Master Gu invites students to start one day at a time, until you complete one Gong, to allow the mind-body to connect on new levels. The ancient masters have long recommended 100 days of steady practice to form the mind-body connections needed for health and healing, and modern neuroscience can now see the benefits in the neural pathways. To support your dedication, at the end of 50 days, students can send in their Gong Chart for the gift of a bonus teaching, and at the end of 100 days you’ll receive a certificate.
This was just the combination of a spiritual and healing practice course I have always been looking for and Master Gu’s wisdom, sincerity and the happiness he radiate make him an exceptional teacher and soul.

The sound healing exercises have become an important start to my day. I love the experience of contacting my organs and body in the morning this way. It’s almost like my safety checks a pilot makes prior to a flight. I feel more aware of the connection between my body and my brain. I enjoy this modality tremendously. It feels good. Was quite distraught when it ended, but so excited when following program started. There is so much wisdom. I listen to replays and gain more and more understanding of information that is provided. Mingtong has a captivating way of teaching.
— Yvonne Praschma, Newfield, New York
Before taking the course: for the period of 1.5 years I’ve been having shoulder pains so bad that I was ready to go for the surgery. I’m absolutely pain FREE now! I tried to do meditation several time before and never succeeded; in this course I finally learned how to do this and it helps me daily. I feel better, my outlook to the existence improved so much more than I could imagine. I just went through a divorce when all my life fell into pieces, and I don’t know where I would be now if not for YOUR help. You really save me in the most difficult situation, you helped to want to live again. Thank you!
As Mingtong says Just Do It! Everyday brings new mental or emotional and physical freedom that transforms old stuck patterns into a liberating happy life. Physically I would say there has been 95% improvement in chronic conditions that I have lived with for many years and emotionally I am feeling more at ease with life and it’s journey. I also realise this is just the first step in a life long commitment and I eagerly look forward to following this gentle and life transforming age old wisdom.
— Manuel, Sydney, Australia
A great benefit was being in the presence of Mingtong Gu and experiencing his focus, silence and delicious sense of joy. Also watching his intent focus, listening and response to the questions asked during the Q&A. It was a very important lesson in a different possibility of being present to one another, of being truly seen and heard.
— Helene, Lansdowne, Pennsylvania
The Shift Network course with Master Mingtong Gu is a unique and powerful course. The techniques are fully explained by Master Gu. You are guided carefully through the exercises. There was time allowed for questions. Students could interact on Facebook and in breakout group phone conferences after each session.

I have never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon to participate. I haven’t seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
