Qigong - Essence of the Healing Dance book by Francesco
Qigong (Chi Kung) (pronounced ‘chee gung’) is the ancient Chinese healthcare modality that has fascinated people throughout the millennia. The system that lies at the core of the Martial Arts and spawned the fundamental principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qigong is a system that teaches us to understand Qi, our bioelectric life force, and use it to heal others and ourselves. Qigong – Essence of the Healing Dance will give you some of the basics of the outward “exercises” that are normally associated with this practice and will show you some movements from systems such as Wuji Qigong, Bagua Xun Dao Gong, and Shaolin Qigong. More than this though, it will take you on an exploration into the “essence” of this little understood healing practice.
Master Duan Zhi Liang

Masters from around the world such as the 93-year-old Duan Zhi Liang of Beijing join Francesco Garri Garripoli in contributing their personal insights into the wonders of Qigong. Another chapter is devoted to the powerful experiences of people from various walks of life that have encountered this healthcare technique. These doctors, practitioners, researchers, and surprised newcomers share how Qigong has played an important part in their physical and spiritual well-being.

Qigong – Essence of the Healing Dance is itself a journey, guided by Francesco Garri Garripoli, practitioner of Qigong and the healing arts for 20 years and director of the Public Television documentary “Qigong – Ancient Chinese Healing for the 21st Century”.

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post
    seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
    problem resolved soon. Cheers

    • Aloha! Thank you for your heads-up with this. I will let our tech folks know… the page looks good on other browsers though… Hmmm..

      I wish you much joy and wellness.

    Aloha my brother! 🙂

    Thank you for making this book available. I feel that these teachings vibrate with my believes. Francesco do you know of any schools in The Netherlands that can assist me in learning/discovering Qigong?

    Love and blessings!


    • Aloha Marc! Thank you for your comments and support. I’m almost done with my third book and am very excited about what I am getting a chance to share with it… As for schools in The Netherlands, I don’t know any, but I do know some good teachers in the Tai Chi and Qigong world there as I have taught in Holland a few times now. I will do my best to make introductions for you. Keep smiling! Love and Peace… Francesco
