The Zhineng Qigong Trust (New Zealand) was delighted to sponsor Wei Qi Feng to visit New Zealand early in 2015. Teacher Wei connected with practitioners throughout the country whilst he took in the sights of New Zealand from Waitangi to Dunedin. People enjoyed his joyous, warm-hearted and humble personality, and experienced his ability to lead practice of great depth and power.
Wei himself enjoyed his visit to New Zealand and the people he spent time with. To our delight he returned to spend some weeks in Wellington where he took classes and two workshops in early 2016. He also took a six day retreat in Auckland, from 27 February to 3 March 2016.
Teacher Wei began learning qigong in his mid teens. In a 2010 interview he described how he would wander in the mountains searching without success for sages who could help him understand the meaning of life. In 1991 he discovered Zhineng Qigong and knew he had found his path. Before long he made his way to Huaxia and the three-month teacher training class.
Returning to school, Wei soon had over 200 students and began healing their family members as well. On leaving school in 1993, he was accepted into the recently-established two-year teaching training course, a time of total immersion in Zhineng Qigong theory and practice. At that time Dr Pang regularly taught the two-year class in person.
On graduation Wei worked as an editor at Huaxia for several years, and usually led the morning and evening practice of the 500-600 Huaxia staff. He was part of a small group used to teach new methods developed by Dr Pang. They were taught by Dr Pang then passed the teaching on at staff practice.
To improve his healing abilities, Wei later chose to work in the Third Healing Department. This took patients turned down as too ill for the First and Second Departments, 300-600 in number.
Throughout the years that followed, Teacher Wei continued to practise and teach Zhineng Qigong. Contact with Westerners saw him learn English and he spends several months of the year in Europe, where he is very highly thought of. Practitioners there enjoy his zest for life and his easy-going nature, whilst they benefit from his extensive knowledge and dedication to Zhineng Qigong.
Master Wei and his fellow teachers of the Harmonious Big Family offer retreats in China and also travel elsewhere, largely throughout Europe. Their 2018/19 programme is on their website at http://www.daohearts.com/
