Cultivates the Spirit & Body
How I View Qinway
Liu, San Jose, CA, USA
an accidental occasion, I was introduced to Grandmaster Qin, founder of Qinway.
I have been interested in religion, Qigong, and oriental mysticism for
many years. Therefore a week after our first meeting, I visited Master
Qin "mysterious" home.

impression of Qinway Qigong was limited to the perception that it was
an effective Qigong exercise to promote health. However after months
of association with Master Qin, witnessing many students benefiting
greatly from Qinway Qigong, I started to realize that the rich connotation
of Qinway Qigong can not be briefly defined by the word "Qigong".
With all new modern concepts, Qinway Qigong makes it possible for modern
people to understand the marvelous relation between the human being
and the universe. While helping people cure diseases and ease pain,
it opens a door to the deep part of human heart.
on the essence of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism, Qinway Qigong
integrated the human sublimation and physical cultivation into an organic
whole. The procedures of the Qigong exercise are designed for the rhythm
of modern life and are practical and effective. After long observation
of Qinway Qigong, I started to feel the impulse of trying for myself.
The idea of losing weight and improving energy level through Qigong
exercise made me excited. What was more, an incident happened a couple
months ago completely changed my wife抯 dubious attitude toward Qigong.
my wife sprained her shoulders and back during the morning shower. She
couldn't move her upper body and neck and could only lie down on her
right hand side. The doctor said she had to stay in bed for a week.
At that time, I remembered Qigong Master Qinyin, so I asked my wife
if she would like to try some Qigong therapy. She was reluctant but
had no other choices. I called Qinyin and let her talk to my wife on
the phone. Miracles happened after they talked for five minutes. I was
surprised to see my wife get up slowly from the bed and stand on the
floor turning her upper body to both sides with ease. This was unimaginable
five minutes ago. The next day, she was able to drive to work like a
normal person. Therefore it didn't take me much effort to persuade her
to attend the Qigong retreat with me on September 24, 1999.
retreat was a complete baptism of the body and the spirit. I lost
14 pounds in just two days (before I weighed 210 pounds, see the above
picture. Left: before; right: after). During the next 12 day of Qigong
fasting, I lost a total of 25 pounds and regained the feeling of fitness.
The quality of my sleep was so good that with only six hours of sleep
I was able to maintain energetic for the whole day. The most amazing thing
was that I didn't feel hungry at all although I only ate half of an apple
my greatest reward is the realization that cultivation of both spirit
and body is the best method of cultivation for me. "Only with a
pure heart could you have real health", this concept answered all
our questions about Qinway Qigong. Combined with my pursuit for the
N-dimensional universal wisdom, a joyful feeling of being reborn has
enhanced my understanding and pride of Chinese traditional treasures.
Grandmaster Qin, and all those people who have been quietly cultivating
for Qinway Qigong.
