The Cosmic Healing Way Qigong Program in its simplest explanation is; Self Care Daoist Martial Art & Medicine Classics Evolved. Created by Dr. Jeff Lan to assist both beginners and experienced players with an easier learning and acquisition process of skills and ability within merging Daoist Qigong and Meditation techniques. This is done to assist the modern lifestyle as well as the time-constrained obligations normally required within these individual practices. Self-healing, enhance the practitioners healing ability, unify the mind, congenital nature and congenital life force, connecting Jing – Qi – Shen, understanding ones emotion from negative energy to positive energy, cultivate and nourish the Qi, technical details on how to sink the Qi in lower dantian, while assuming postures sitting, standing or lying down, work and process in detail how to execute dantian breathing, understand the process of grounding.
Tai Chi Quan helps us to separate the Yin and Yang of the body while in motion, within this stillness it helps to harmonise Yin and Yang, allowing for the activation of the meridians and collaterals, to enhance the regulation and flow of Qi and blood circulation, to balance and stabalise the central equilibrium, working on the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system, by relaxing the physical body, defining and distinguishing between the principle of full and empty to allow our whole gravity to drop down completely, as well as allowing the sinking of Qi into the lower dantian/cauldron of life. All to enhance the quality of Life.
Health Qigong is easy to access toward learning any form of Qigong; from the old school classics to modern-day adaptations thereof. It is well suited for individuals who struggle with finding a routine, have an overactive spirit, or mastering the combined action of meditation, breathwork, and technicalities associated. The methodology used is simplified steps toward acquisition. First, learn the sequence, next fix technicalities while applying the 3 regulation adjustments. Our uniqueness; besides over 30 years in Qigong practice? We take it a step further by applying the “old school” principles for profound therapy in action. Benefits: Easy to learn, few minutes to practice, assist with self-help and well being, refines the practice natural movement such as standing or sitting down, works on the meridians and collaterals, assists the balance of the yin and yang, works on three adjustments, mind – breath – movement, allows Qi and blood to move and flow properly in the meridians and collaterals

Each Step is a progression toward improved skills and ability.
5 – REFINEMENT. RETURN TO ORIGIN
Regardless of expertise; Classic Ancient Knowledge Systems require us to ever so often revisit the fundamental basics; as you never know what you could have missed initially. After all; these simple actions hold the inner wealth for healing within the action; also known as the Secrets of Kung Fu. The master not only taught the student to fight, but to heal as well.
Where do I start
One should always start at the beginning to ensure, a progressive understanding, to arrive at a logical, and applicable phase of each step. To start any program; you will need to start with the basics, such as the courses, “how-to” lessons. In order to do tai chi, meditate, or learn to heal; be it the self or others; your basic knowledgeability needs to be amplified. The techniques taught are geared toward an assist, both for self-healing and that of the healer or practitioner, allowing the ability to heal without loss of vitality.
Which is best online or face to face?
It all depends on the client’s needs and ability to train on their own. We have made it possible that both online and face to face have a similar feel and approach. Of course! Online is an amazing reference library in case some technical things are forgotten. It is beneficial to use both systems for reference and training on your own with guided tutorials. This makes live lessons more rewarding when training with the instructor during a session.
Can I enhance my skills and ability?
To add to the forms taught; we will expand with alternative methods that are specific to certain areas of skills enhancement and ability amplification. An example is the Bone Marrow Regeneration Exercise; normally trained in conjunction with Shaolin Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Qigong training. The details assist with the related fundamentals toward becoming a well-rounded practitioner of not only skills-based content but amplifying ability too. We release content related to TCM aka Traditional Chinese Medicine and philosophy (philosophy is integrated into specific related course topics for easier understanding).
I have heard of Dim Mak aka Death Touch?
Chinese martial arts, Daoist healing, and its philosophies form the basic fundamental building blocks which are beneficial toward the healing Chinese martial arts practices of Tai Chi Quan, Qigong, and its complementary, TCM therapy. Tui Na, Bonesetting, Chinese herbs and Acupuncture form the nucleus of TCM. They cannot be separated. In the past, the master not only taught his understudy to fight but to heal as well. It would be beneficial for the understudy to compliment his art with TCM knowledge; to connect to the body functioning and flow of energy; used for defence against an opponent. For example, the very same technique used in the manipulation of joints and accomplishing the “death touch” is easily transformed to assist healing. Tui Na is often called De Da Sun Sang (fall, hit, damage, injury).
Why must I know Chinese medicine?
Daoists acknowledged the presence of preventative medicine and the methods of nourishing life as a valuable tool and as a natural process and part of its nature. Chinese martial arts, Daoist healing, and its philosophies form the basic fundamental building blocks which are beneficial toward healing. It would be beneficial for the client to compliment his/her art with TCM knowledge; to understand and connect to the body functioning and flow of energy; alongside knowing which points, meridians, collaterals, and organs to trigger.
