Hello, I'm Lee Holden. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to introduce you to the time honored healing art of Qi Gong. This is an incredible opportunity to unleash the power of your life-force energy. Known by many names through various cultures, "Qi" or life-force energy is the power that animates your body, mind, and spirit.
Energy is that secret substance that we are all seeking. Described by the ancients as the elixir of life, Qi is the vital essence that creates health, harmony, and well-being. There's no lack of energy in nature - just as the sunrise inspires the flowers to open and the birds to sing, allow this Qi Healing Kit to offer you the gift of uplifting your energy and infusing you with deep vitality and an expanded awareness.
Not only will this practice give you more energy and vitality, but it will also create better body awareness, emotional freedom, and mental clarity. Qi Gong translates as "working with energy". By becoming proficient at working with energy, you become more resourceful and empowered, living the life that you desire. The ancient Qi Gong classics encourage us to use the power of Qi, rather than force from the muscles or straining the mind. Qi the innate power that courses through you and moves throughout nature.
Cultivating Qi is not about brute strength or force, but more like a blade of grass breaking through cement—it’s an intrinsic power that comes from within. This is true energy and we all have the potential to cultivate from within. Let these flowing movements and meditations shed light on the seeds of your potential as you enjoy a more energized, vital, and passionate way of being.
With Qi and Vitality,
The Qi Healing Kit
The study and practice of qi, your essential life-force energy, is an amazing journey. It’s an inner adventure into the miracles of your body, mind, and spirit. Many sages, ancient and modern, have devoted their lives to the contemplation of qi. Both Taoist and Buddhist schools of thought have focused their attention on studying the power of qi. As you yourself delve into The Qi Healing Kit, you will begin to unleash the power of your life-force energy and realize what the ancient masters have talked about for millennia — that you are magical beyond belief.
Like all teachings, this program will point out certain sights and lead you toward certain destinations, but the journey can only be taken by you. It’s a map that’s been around for thousands of years. And like a well-trodden path to the top of a mountain, the practices and meditations in this program have a rich and diverse history. But, as it is said, the map is not the territory; like any great explorer, you must discover qi for yourself.
Once you’re familiar with the techniques, the true journey begins— one that is beyond instruction. The true journey is less like a marked path and more like the invisible flight of a bird soaring through the air. It is a journey where healing, vitality, and deep peace are discovered. The Taoist path is an exhilarating rush of lightness and levity, of depth and intensity, and ultimately it is yours to discover in your own unique way.
To begin, I like to start at the ending and give you a glimpse into where this journey may lead you. To the Taoist, the end and the beginning are on the closest two places on the circle of life. In the end, you will come to realize that you are your own best miracle and that you have tremendous potential within to have a completely fulfilling life, one that is inspired and in alignment with a higher purpose.
We tend to look outside, into the world, for the answers to life’s problems. The trouble with this approach is that happiness and fulfillment aren’t found externally; they are cultivated within. The true treasures we seek are states of being; peace, love, tranquility, ecstasy, and bliss are all internal qualities. Even when we think that someone or something will give us the experience of these treasures, they still are generated within. The external world elicits these emotions and energies within us.
The Taoist says that since these states of being come from within, they can be cultivated from the inside out. Trying to find happiness externally is, as the Taoists say, like searching for dragon’s eggs. They don’t exist! Once we’ve acquired our next material goal, we are on to something else in a never-ending quest. The Taoist recommends cultivating life’s treasures within first, which then enables you to truly enjoy the external world and your life.
