Qi (also spelled "Chi") is the Chinese term for our life energy. Qi is one of 3 frequencies of energy that make up The 3 Treasures of Taoist science. These 3 frequencies of energy are referred to as “Jing”--Original Essence, “Qi”--Vital Energy, and “Shen”--Spirit and they are the blueprint for everything that occurs within our body and life as a whole. These 3 frequencies of energy are comparable to a candle. The candle itself represents Jing, the flame representing Qi, and the light radiating from the flame represents Shen.

These 3 frequencies of energy are designed to function together as one as they follow the soul's decent into density. Addressing this flow holistically on all 3 levels provide the highest results in your healing journey.


Qigong (also spelled Chi Kung/Chi Gong) translates to mean "life energy cultivation". Qigong is a system that encompasses Taosit neigong, inner alchemy practices, and moving meditative forms alongside clinical treatment. It is a system that is incredibly full and rich in its depth, its power, its spiritually transformative, and healing capacities bringing us deeper into alignment with nature.


Classical qigong has a very esoteric, shamanistic quality to it and is based on the classics of Taoist philosophy.  Qigong practice was developed in ancient times as a means to significantly increase the strength, health, emotional balance, mental fortitude, longevity, and vital force within our body through the cultivation and purification of our qi within the 5 elements.


Classical qigong incorporates both aspects of clinical and meditative practice designed to work together to clear the net that has been laid over us through our life experiences that keep our soul trapped and hard. When these two components of clinical and meditative practice come together addressing the entire system, healing and growth can happen very quickly.​

Heart Center

The crown jewel and foundation of qigong in healing and self practice is the deep dive into our own heart through the practice of gratitude. This opens a pathway that brings our shen (spirit) and qi (soul) fields together at the middle tan tien within the toroidal fields of our heart; known simply as "heart center". 


Heart centered practice creates a powerful field of awareness that radiates a deep warmth and connection without violating space. This pure consciousness of "oneness" can show up in many ways through center. All of which heal and transform consciousness in powerful ways.
