“The heart is the key. That’s the place where you can access deeper dimensions of yourself, beyond the thinking level, beyond the intellect, beyond the active mind. You go deeper into the subconscious, deeper into the unconscious, into the resources inside of your organs and inside of your cells. The heart is the entrance to that deeper dimension. The heart is also the place where the mind and body truly integrate - truly harmonize. All spiritual traditions emphasize the heart.”
~ Master Mingtong Gu

“The greatest discovery of modern science is the link between the energy coursing through the cells of our body and the energy that gave birth to the stars and galaxies and life itself. Qi Gong is the embodiment of this discovery. Through the practice of Qigong, one comes to feel the energy that pervades us and carries us forward in our lives; and one begins to abide in this primoridal healing energy that has brought forth our cosmos over the last 13.7 billion years.” Brian Swimme, mathematical cosmologist and author of "The Universe Story"
