Dr Pang left a successful career in medicine to create a modern qigong that would be safe and easy to learn. Its basis is theories he developed about the nature of the universe and the sub-systems within it, including humans. His theories and the practice itself draw on Traditional Chinese Medicine, qigong and martial arts, as well as on Western science.
Dr Pang published a number of books on the theory and practice of Zhineng Qigong, some of which have now been translated into English. His aim was for people to achieve excellent health along with wisdom and spiritual awareness. He used the term ‘true self’ to describe our inherent consciousness or being. Experiencing and living in accord with our true self brings a sense of peace and harmony, a clear mind, and freedom from compulsive thoughts and desires.
