Qi Energy

We assume that humans and nature form a unit, penetrated by Qi energy. Therefore in Zi Ran Men Qi Gong we can return discordant Qi from our body to the universe where it dissolves. In so doing we can slowly become free of discordant energies. On the other hand the universe has endless energy supplies whereas human beings only possess limited energy and often feel in need of more. By practising Qi Gong we can learn to use the cosmic energy around us to increase and strengthen our own energy.
