We also went to Wuhan where we studied meditation with Grand Master Cheng Zhen, the Abbot of Eternal Spring Temple.  A special ceremony was also arranged by Grand Master Cheng Zhen where we all received a Daoist name and became members of the Dragon Gate  lineage of Daoism.  I was given the name Xin Gen which means Genuine Root or Genuine Source.

My Path to Medical Qigong and the Wild Goose system

For the last week of my stay in China, I was studying alone at Xiyuan hospital with Dr. Xu Hongtau (shown on the left with me at the Great Wall) who is head of  the Tuina and Qigong Department.  I had the chance to refine my practice of Guigen Qigong and to learn some Tuina which is a form of Chinese Massage and a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Every afternoon from 3pm to 5 pm the patients, Dr. Xu and myself would practise the dynamic Guigen Qigong forms for half an hour and then sit for an hour and a half of meditation.

I am Ken Morgan. After a career in computer programming, teaching yoga and running an acupuncture clinic, I have now retired to Malaysia.

 

I am a student of medical qigong, especially Wild Goose Qigong  and am interested in promoting its benefits through this website.

Prior to any interest in qigong I had been practising Tibetan Buddhist meditation since the 1970s.  Although not known by this term in Tibet, the influence of Tibetan Buddhism in China left a Tibetan Buddhist Qigong there known as Mi Zong Qigong. To this day some of the Tibetan Buddhist mantras are in common use by Chinese qigong practitioners.  Although the pronunciation may have strayed somewhat from the original, just as the pronunciation strayed when the mantras went from India to Tibet.

 

I first came across qigong in when I was studying Polarity Therapy in the 1980s.  I discovered that the teacher Franklyn Sills was also a qigong teacher and asked him for personal instruction.  Franklyn’s main teacher was Sifu Fong Ha (www.fongha.com) and Professor Peng-Si Yu (1902-1983) who was a direct student of Wang Xiang Zhai , the founder of the Yiquan system.

In the 1980s I also studied Mantak Chia’s Healing Tao system with Mantak Chia himself and with one of his intructors, Karl Gunter.

 

At that time I had trained in the Wing Chun kungfu system with Samuel Kwok and had begun to instruct.  This led on to my interest in Taiji quan.  I studied the Cheng style with John Higginson and Nigel Sutton of the Zhong Ding Traditional Martial Arts Association.  

 

In 1998/99 I spent six months on a yoga teacher training in Pondicherry, India at the International Centre for Yoga Education and Research  studying Rishiculture Ashtanga Yoga (now known as Gitananda Yoga after the founder of the ashram, Swami Gitananda).  To further my ability to teach I gained the City and Guilds Further and Adult Education Teacher’s Certificate.

 

In 2005 I gained my B.Sc. (1st Class Honours) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Acupuncture) and became a member of the British Acupuncture Council.  In 2006 I gained a certification in the Toyohari style of Japanese acupuncture.

 

In the last few years I have been studying Wild Goose Qigong with Dr. Bingkun Hu and in 2006 started a training with Michael Rindaldini, a medical qigong teacher.  He is a Certified Teacher of Master Wan Sujian's Bagua Xundao Gong qigong system and a National Qigong Association Certified Qigong Teacher, Level IV ( highest level ).  He is also a Daoist Priest of the Longmen Dragon Gate sect.

 

In April 2007, I went to China for an 18 day qigong study tour and private study at Xiyuan hospital.  The group was led by Qigong Master Simon Blow who taught us Guigen Qigong and the Eight Brocades qigong (Baduanjin) early every morning throughout the tour.  We started in Beijing visiting the usual tourist sites and also the Xiyuan hospital.  We spent four days with Dr. Xu Hongtau at a hotel conference centre  built in an old fortress on the Great Wall of China outside of Beijing. He is the founder of Guigen Qigong and we had the chance to practise the form with him and get detailed teachings on qigong and meditation.  He is a particular advocate of meditation which he describes as “returning to nothingness”.  These four days of training were certified by the World Academic Society of Medical Qigong.
