The Wild Goose Qigong is a complete healing system. It is one of the most famous
and widely practiced qigongs in China today. It is well known for its lovely and
graceful movements and suggests the image of an innocent carefree wild goose. These
special birds have been observed for centuries by the Kunlun Mountain School practitioners
who sensed the beauty and harmony of freely flowing energy (Qi or Chi) in these soaring
Contrary to the Western belief of "no pain, no gain," the circular and spiral movements
of Wild Goose Qigongs are designed to be played effortlessly and with fluidity. As
for the use of awareness, Wild Goose Qigong claims that there are no intentional
movements without awareness. Therefore, using too strong an intentionality in one's
awareness can only inhibit the gentle moving of Qi. Wild Goose Qigong advocates "wu-wei"
(or "non-doing") and "tuo-yi" ("minimising thought").
As a movement-oriented qigong, Wild Goose movements are meant to activate various
acupoints and allow energy to flow in the major channels in the front and back of
the torso. Wild Goose Qigong can increase inner strength and flexibility, improve
immune function and circulation, develop breath and movement, and help develop sensitivity
to our inner energy flow.
Perhaps the most wonderful thing about the Wild Goose Qigong is that it is so enjoyable.
The movements are dance-like and feel light and joyful while the meditations are
peaceful and relaxing.
The system of Wild Goose Qigong has both movement and meditation forms.

the UK each year giving workshops on Wild Goose Qigong. I organised his UK workshops
