About Qigong Dharma

QigongDharma is the confluence of the streams of qigong and meditation – embodiment and insight.  It is a pathway to radiant well-being and lends access to direct knowledge of who we are in the greater sense.  Practicing QigongDharma in this way empowers meditators with calm clear energy, strength and vibrant health – bringing peace to the body, heart and spirit.

Radiant Heart Qigong embraces action and stillness, cultivating:

  • Standing meditation

  • Sitting meditation

  • Supine meditation postures

  • In-motion practices that “presence awareness” through the elements of physical and energetic alignment for well-being and centered-grounded presence and balance in harmony

Radiant Heart Qigong teaches the continuity of meditation in stillness and in motion, using the modalities of:

  • Mindfulness

  • Natural concentration

  • Presence

  • Compassion and Wisdom

These are the initial and primary distinctions, and represent only part of the energetic and cognitive transmission.

This is the practice of integrating wholeness in embodied meditative action with quality of mindfulness that I call “presence awareness.”

These teachings are fundamentally in harmony with the principles and practices of Dharma.

Qigong, taught in this way, is a dharma teaching in itself. The balance and intersection of stillness and movement find the fullness of expression in qigong meditation. Well-being, balance and bliss are brought into direct present wakefulness – the ground, the path and the goal of Dharma-based qigong. As these practices of health and longevity have been developed in Taoist and Buddhist environments, the principles of natural balanced being, harmony with nature, compassion, calmness and relaxation are dynamically present. Learning and knowledge are now a matter of direct experience in this meditative endeavor. Healing and transformation are a matter of ‘letting go’ to the luminous intelligence of our true nature. Recognition of our oneness with all that is – is no longer a concept, but an immediate experience that arises simultaneously with our normal awareness.
