              Where and When

              The Center for Wisdom Healing Qigong

              The Chi Center is located in the majestic high desert of Central New Mexico, just 20 minutes South of Santa Fe in Galisteo, NM.

              This beautiful 79 acre resort boasts breathtaking views of New Mexico’s landscape, the dazzling sunsets over the western mountains, and vast darkness that illuminates the Milkey Way on the many clear nights. As soon as you arrive you can feel the same healing energy of the land that the native people of this area have been feeling for thousands of years.

              Workshops are held in the beautiful circular building which replicates traditional ceremonial kivas, set into the earth. The main house features six fireplaces, and the grounds include two labyrinths, outdoor fireplaces, fountains, a pond with a waterfall and paths for reflection and hiking.

              “This is a place where heaven and earth truly meet within you and around you.”

              Just as Dr. Pang started with ten students in the early 1970s, and inspired millions of practitioners within two decades, Master Mingtong started with only a few small classes. In just a few years, Wisdom Healing Qigong has expanded into a global program, with thousands of online participants, and sold-out retreats around the world. Our vision, to create a center dedicated to integrative healing through Wisdom Healing Qigong, is now a reality at The Chi Center.

              Dr. Pang MingGrandmaster Ming Pang

              Wisdom Healing (Zhineng) Qigong was developed by Dr. Ming Pang, a Qigong Grandmaster trained in both western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine. He synthesized his profound medical knowledge of the old and new healing sciences with the ancient Qigong practice.

              The result is an integrative system of self-healing and cultivation that is suited for the modern pragmatic world.

              Dr. Pang (Heming Pang) is a renowned Chinese Qigong Grandmaster. He founded the largest Qigong medicine-less hospital in China, which has treated more than 200,000 patients and a documented 95% success rate . The Chinese government named Zhineng Qigong as the one of the most effective medical Qigong due to its extensive research and effective application of Qigong as a mind-body science.
