This presentation was delivered to the 2010 Acupuncture Association Conference in Wellington.

The goal was to demonstrate how Shen (the mind) is the master of Qi (the body and energy).

Qi Gong is a form of training and practice
to enable the practitioner to take an active role in directing the consciousness inward
and use it positively in order to transform, enhance and perfect human life.

"The purpose of Qi Gong practice is to bring life closer to the law of human life. When you follow the law of life, you can be healthy. The more deeply you follow the law, the healthier you get.

We can look at all human problems as being the result of going against the law, and hence to deal with problems we have to go back and begin to follow the law.”

Yuan Tze, Qi Gong Master
