Why I Love Yuan Gong

“Life is to be greatly valued and cherished. Health is the most precious asset in life.” ~ Yuan Tze

Continuing in the thread of things I love, I wanted to say a few words about Yuan Gong, a form of Qigong.

In 1997, I woke up very early in the morning in my hotel in Shanghai. I walked to the french doors and looked out over the park. The morning sun glimmered through hundreds of Chinese doing Tai Chi together. It was breathtakingly beautiful, this sight of hundreds of people flow in a form of dance together. I thought to myself, “someday I will learn how to do that.”

In the Spring, one of my subscribers returned from a retreat with Yuan Tze, the founder of Yuan Gong. She was glowing. After many discussions, I asked her how I could learn the practice. She sent me to her teacher, Dale Mirmow. I took a private class from Dale, bought the Yaun Gong practice video and have loved this ever since.
