Tibetan Shamanic Qigong (Qi Dao)

After finishing in the later part of 2009 my Qi Dao advance studies with Lama Tantrapa Rinpoche in Tigard, Oregon, the following theories on Qigong, and Qi Dao with body, mind and spiritual benefits are my own opinions and experiences I have derived from practicing and coaching this transformative and empowering Tibetan Shamanic Qigong called Qi Dao – the art of being in the flow with the Dao.

For thousands of years, Qigong formed the foundation of Oriental Medicine because Qi, universal energy or life force, is the basis of life, therefore, energy awareness offers us the key to health, happiness and longevity. Most styles of Qigong use movements, breathing, meditation and visualization for the purpose of cultivating Qi. They are often taught through ‘doing forms,’ or choreographed movements, that are to be memorized and repeated on a regular basis.

All styles of Qigong originated from a primordial foundation of Qigong that was deeply rooted in the Shamanic Medicine Dances and Zhan Zhuang Qigong. Tibetan Shamanic Qigong also called Qi Dao goes back to the Shamanic roots of Qigong and encourages its practitioners to stay true to the universality of this energy art. Qi Dao teaches us how to feel the flow of energy, how to be in the flow and simply surrender to that flow. The practice of Qi Dao includes no routines of repetitive movements that are supposed to manipulate or cultivate Qi. Aside from being a powerful internal martial art and ultimately dedicated to self-realization and awakening, it is an energy healing modality facilitating self-healing. It teaches us that there is an abundant source of energy within us that we can tap by paying attention to the existing flow of Qi without any judgements. Empowering others to embody such an attitude became the hallmark of Qi Dao coaching.

The use of the energy ball and the four universal elements earth, water, air and fire are the hallmarks of Qi Dao to embody and master being in the flow in the six branches of the Qigong tree. The six branches of the Qigong tree that correspond to the historical Qigong branches and comprise the six main applications of Qi Dao are Daoist, Internal Martial Art (Wushu), Tantric, Therapeutic, Confucianist and Buddhist Qigong.

Daoist Qigong – Dao Yin – primarily dedicated to wellness and longevity
Wushu Qigong – Internal Martial Art – for self-defense and conflict resolution
Tantric Qigong – Tantra Yoga – for mutual self-realization through enlightened relationships
Therapeutic Qigong – Qigong Therapy – for holistic energy healing and prevention
Confucian Qigong – Mastery Coaching – for manifesting your innermost dreams
Buddhist Qigong – Dream Yoga – for spiritual awakening in the dream called life.

Physical Benefits:
Because of the magic of touch and regular practice of Qi Dao’s harmonious culture of movement, the physical discomforts such as shoulder, back and other body pains I used to suffer from are now history together with cardiovascular and immune system energy fields (Wei Qi) strengthening results.

Psychological Benefits:
Most of the stress-related disorders caused by the six holding patterns with their psychological and emotional states such as Holding Forth (anger), Holding Back (judgemental), Holding In (fear), Holding Out(cynical), Holding Down (depression) and Holding Up (pride) have all been managed and prevented.

Spiritual Benefits:
Because the energy blockages, tension and congestion caused by the six holding patterns have all been cleared, and balanced through the practice of the Wushu, Daoist and Therapeutic Qigong, manifesting the dream of enlightened relationship, self-realization and awakening are now possible through the practice of Buddhist, Tantric and Confucianist Qigong.

Overall Summary:
From the above body, mind and spiritual mentioned benefits in being rooted, grounded and centered derived from the regular practice of the six main branches of Qi Dao, I am grateful that I started and finished my beginner, intermediate and advance Qi Dao practitioner certification program which cover the necessary Qi Dao empowerment and fundamentals in the six branches of Qigong that provide the missing foundational tools to master the art of being in the flow with the Dao that is synonymous with becoming one with the Dao.

Most importantly, unlike other Qigong styles without spiritual component which are basically stuck to one chakra similar to psychologial or emotional states, the practice of Qi Dao is fluidic, malleable and not stuck to one chakra making it possible for the flow of Qi to become freely unimpeded in every one of the chakras, meridians, organs or parts of the body within one’s energy field. This free flowing fluidity and malleability of Qi, a distinct hallmark of Qi Dao, I believe, is what makes it work in the six branches of Qigong and is one of the most important reason to practice Qi Dao aka “Way of Energy“.

According to the book of Chuang Tzu, an old man is seen by some followers of Confucious swimming in a raging torrent; suddenly, he disappears. The pupils of Confucious rush to save him, but the man reaches the bank entirely unaided. Asked how he had pulled off this remarkable feat of survival, the man replied that he had simply let himself go with the descending and ascending currents in the water. The true Taoist, in other words, moulds his senses, body and mind until they are at one with the currents of the world without.

“This is how I quiet my monkey mind – I become aware of my breath and my monkey mind quiets down. Where awareness goes, energy flows. Where energy flows, awareness follows.”
