Is Qi Gong Religious?
It can be for those practicing Buddhism or the religious version of Daoism. We at Orion Dragon Qi-Gong are only interested in the health, performance and healing aspects of the art form.
Are you a Qi Gong Master?
No I am not. I am a teacher and a Qi healer. I teach what I know and am familiar with. Qi Gong masters are quite rare in this country. To be one requires many years of study under the direct teaching of a master or grand master, often becoming a lineage holder of that particular style. It is bestowed upon an individual by their master when they demonstrate proper skill, development, knowledge and their blessing. It is quite an accomplishment and should be held in as much esteem as a Ph.D or M.D., perhaps more so in my opinion. Although I have learned most of my Qi Gong under Grandmaster T.K.Shih, I have also learned and delved into other styles. I personally am not concerned about a title or even a particular lineage. I pick and choose what feels right for me, what I get results with and what may benefit my friends, family and client's health and wellness. I can offer much at my level of learning and development and will gladly point students and clients toward other teachers and masters whom I have either studied under or have a good reputation.
