WAIMEA — Two Zhineng Qigong teachers and healers will visit Waimea Saturday through Aug. 20 to lead five workshops in qigong and tai chi at various locations around town. Visiting from China, Zhang Fushun and Bu Xiaojing will also offer individual and group healings.

This trip will be Fushun’s first visit to Hawaii Island and Xiaojing’s fifth over the past three years.

The workshops were organized by residents Steve Bess and Jan Marrack, who lead weekly qigong gatherings at Anna Ranch.

“I’ve been able to use qigong to boost my energy and cure feelings of physical malaise,” Marrack said. “And my balance has shown great improvement.”

Qigong is a 5,000-year-old system of self-healing that combines the energy work of Oriental medicine with meditation and physical movement. Its effectiveness has been shown by its impact on the health of millions of people since first introduced.

“There are a few thousand styles of Qigong in China,” according to Xiaojing. “Among these, Zhineng Qigong has proven one of the most effective in improving health and nourishing the body with vital universal energy. It literally means ‘cultivating intelligent energy.’”

Also known as Wisdom Healing Qigong or ChiLel in the West, Zhineng Qigong was founded in the 1980s by Grandmaster Ming Pang. Trained in both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, he synthesized his medical knowledge of the old and new healing sciences with the ancient Qigong practice. The result was an integrative system of self-healing and cultivation for the modern world.

In 1988, Pang opened the world’s largest medicine-less hospital, Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Training and Recovery Center. Through scientific research, including 3,000 research papers published during the 1990s and more than 20 years of experimenting with Qigong healing, Wisdom Healing Qigong developed into a scientific system of working with energy to improve life including healing. Pang has published more than 10 books on this topic. Over the years, the Center has treated more than 180 diseases, with an overall success rate of more than 95 percent, according to the Chi-Lel Qigong website. Typically, more than 4,000 people live there, including doctors, patients, ChiLel teachers, trainees and supporting personnel.

The program will kick off in Waimea this Saturday and Sunday, with Fushun and Xiaojing’s “Enhancing Workshop” from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in Kanu o ka Aina’s gymnasium for Zhineng Qigong practitioners to develop their practice and anyone who would like to better manage their health and life. There is a fee to attend this workshop, but previous participants can attend at no charge.

Next Monday, Fushun and Xiaojing will teach a free “Introduction to Qigong” class, including practice, from 5:30-7 p.m. at Tutu’s House. They hope to bring a new level of expertise in Zhineng Qigong to Big Islanders.

On Aug. 15 and 17, free “Zhineng Qigong &Tai Chi practice” classes will be open to the public at 7 a.m. at Anna Ranch.

A final two-day Waimea “Healing Workshop” will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Aug. 19 and 20 at Kanu o ka Aina for a fee. Fushun will also be available for healing by appointment Aug. 14-18.

In Kona, at 6 p.m. this Thursday, a free Zhineng Qigong workshop on healing and enhancing physical and mental well-being will be led by Fushun and Xiaojing at the West Hawaii Community Health Center in Kealakehe.

Fushun is a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine. His work includes clinical practice, teaching and research for curing spinal diseases, spinal related internal medicine diseases, hypertension-related diseases and insomnia. He is the director of the outpatient Department of Orthopaedics and Massage in Tianjin at the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine-affiliated hospital. He is also the education director of patients in Tianjin Heping District University for Senior Citizens, and the executive director of the China Association of Medical Qigong.

Xiaojing is a Zhineng Qigong and tai qi teacher and practitioner. She healed herself from lupus by practicing Zhineng Qigong for 24 days. Formerly a high school English teacher, she teaches Taiji to students and teachers.

“In 1992, Zhineng Qigong was named the most effective in preventing illness, and maintaining health than any other Tai Qi or other exercise practiced in China,” Xiaojing said. “Through posture, movement, breath and mental focus, it offers a methodology to rediscover the inner medicine — Qi — the vital and healing resource inside us. Zhineng Qigong is the world’s most widely practiced form of qigong with upwards of 20 million practitioners.”
