ShengHua 昇華/Great Transformation – 49 Day Challenge with Master Wu

In order to support the traditional cultivation practices of Qi-friends from all over the world, I am offering a traditional 49 day Qigong challenge.

Why 49 days? In the Mt. Emei shamanic tradition (and in the Yijing prediction system), we emphasize an important universal principle stated in the hexagram Fu 復, “FanFuQiDao QiRiLaiFu 反覆其道 七日來復 — one cycle of the Way returns again in the seventh day.” This principle indicates that the universe cycles through different qualities of Qi (vital energy) for six days and on the seventh day, the energetic cycle begins again, anew. This is why seven also stands for rebirth or recreation. Our human bodies are also deeply influenced by this repeating cycle of Qi. Traditionally, seven cycles of seven is the complete cycle of transformation. 

Experience it for yourself! Set a goal to dedicate to 49 days (seven-sevens) of unbroken practice and notice what kinds of changes you notice in your body on a physical, emotional or spiritual level.

This series is donation based, open to everyone, regardless of experience. Although recommended, is not required for anyone to attend the entire 49 days.


Zhen ☳ Qigong – The Ritual of the Heart

According to the classical Qigong tradition, there is only one disease: Qi stagnation. This fundamental principle of traditional Chinese medicine is described to us in the HuangDi NeiJing黃帝內經: BuTongZeTong 不通則痛 – If there is obstruction, there will be disease. 

Qi stagnation (or loss of Qi flow) forms irregular patterns in the energetic, mental and/or physical planes of the body. Left unchecked, Qi stagnation will manifest as the myriad of diseases known to modern medicine. By learning to transform areas of stagnation back to free-flowing Qi, we work to recover the health of our health and wellbeing. The NeiJing tells us that all pain is related to the Heart, which itself is a symbol for Shen 神 – spirit within the body. In other words, the classics tell us that a weak spiritual body may cause weakness in the physical body. This connection should never be ignored.

In China’s esoteric EMeiZhenGong 峨嵋真功 (Mt. Emei Sage Style) school, connecting to the spirit and transforming areas of Qi stagnation is the key to healing illness and imbalance. Zhen ☳ Qigong, also known as the Ritual of the Heart, is an ancient practice of inner dancing and drumming to awaken the energy and consciousness. It promotes the free flow of Qi throughout the body, optimizes the function of the organ systems, awakens the Shen 神, and brings balance to the physical, mental and spiritual bodies.
