Qi or Chi (pronounced chee) means vital energy. This is the energy of all living things and the cosmos.

Thousands of years ago ancient Chinese masters had discovered through meditation and intuition what would take Albert Einstein to theorize and modern science to prove in modern times. Namely that everything, including all matter and even ourselves, is nothing but interwoven fields of energy.

Qigong or Chi Kung (pronounced chee-gong) means vital energy work or life energy cultivation.

It is a form of meditative exercise used to train the mind, body and spirit. Chi Kung uses a variety of methods in order to cultivate, regulate and flow the Qi.
