Shaolin Cosmos Qigong

In our school we teach Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung - as passed on to us by Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit. These arts and skills were taught by Bodhidharma to the Shaolin monks around 1500 years ago. They include the techniques of the Eighteen Lohan Hands.

The Eighteen Lohan Hands is one of the physical forms used to develop and practice the skills of Chi Kung. The first eight of these forms are commonly known as the 8 Pieces of Brocade or Ba Duan Jin, which are practiced in various ways all over the world.

The Eighteen Lohan Hands is a set of techniques or physical forms. Practiced at the physical level they can help with postural alignment, flexibility and physical conditioning. When practiced using the skills of Chi Kung, and particularly the ability to generate energy flow, any and all of them can be used to clear illness, improve overall health, become more energetic and help with clarity of mind. These Chi Kung exercises can also be used to develop a joyful and open-hearted resonance with the world around us, and appreciation of life. These are the overall or holistic benefits of all genuine Chi Kung.

To get the benefits and to practice without harm it is necessary to have been taught and developed the skills of:

Standing in an uprighting and relaxing wayShaolin Lineage
Absence of unnecessary tension
Coming to stillness
Correct Form
Correct breathing
Chi Kung state of mind
Smiling from the Heart
Experiencing energy flow
Generating an energy flow
Generating a vigorous energy flow
Conscious flow appropriate to the outcome

In this course we will pass on the important fundamental skills and practices of the 8 Pieces of Brocade, as well as explaining the benefits of each of the exercises. Below are the first two exercises of the 8 Pieces of Brocade being taught at the course. 

1. Lifting the Sky

2. Shooting Arrows

This exercise works on all meridians and generates an over-all chi flow. Good for postural alignment, back and neck, allergies, fear, self confidence, stress relief, tinnitus, incontinence, haemorrhoids and first aid to injuries. This exercise is considered a wondrous exercise in our school.

This exercise activates chi flow and helps develop internal force. It is beneficial for heart, lungs and skin, and solving problems with high blood pressure and respiration. Its ability to improve memory, vitality, strength of arms and build confidence makes it an excellent exercise for martial artists and sports people.

Practicing Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung is a direct, simple and effective way of clearing illnesseshaving more energy and generally feeling happier and healthier. And the greater the “Kung” or skills, the more benefits you get. That’s why we run our courses – to help you learn and deepen these skills and therefore get more benefits.

The title of the Level 1 Chi Kung course is: Generating Energy Flow for Health and Happiness. At the course you will:
Learn or deepen the fundamental skills of clearing illness, increasing energy and happily engaging in life
Get a direct experience of it working for you and the confidence to practice at home
Understand how Chi Kung skills can be used to address specific issues in your everyday life

The benefit of Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung is that by regularly doing a 15 minute practice, illness can be cleared at many levels - physical, emotional and mental. It is wonderful at addressing many chronic difficulties like depression, pain, obsessive thoughts, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, anxiety and stress. As well as helping people overcome chronic illness it also helps people to increase their energy, have a clearer mind and generally live happier and healthier lives.


To get the best out of practicing Qi Gong you’ll need to learn how to generate an energy flow.

Without the ability to generate an energy flow you’ll only get the benefits of a gentle exercise. Genuine Qi Gong gives you much more.
An excellent way to learn these skills is to join a courses like ‘Introduction to Qi Gong'

Practicing a high level energy art…

When practiced correctly the art of Shaolin Cosmos Qi Gong (Chi Kung) promises good health, increased energy, mental freshness/clarity and spiritual growth from an efficient 15-minute daily practice. This can be achieved by developing the correct and necessary skills for practicing high-level Qi Gong. These skills can range from ‘Self Manifested Chi Movement’ to ‘Pulsating with the Cosmos’.

Many people believe that the practice of Qi Gong is made up of a number of patterns that can be followed in sequence, like in ‘Tai Chi Dance’. Whilst Qi Gong does involve movement and forms, it is actually ‘the art of energy’. To get the real benefits you need to develop skills. These skills include the ability to relax physically, mentally and emotionally, to experience an absence of unnecessary thinking and tension, to enter a Qi Gong state of mind and to generate a flow of energy. Later these skills can be used for further development and deeper practices.

Aims of the course…
In our school we aim to make the learning progressive, practical and easy to understand and follow, so that each practitioner comes away from the course with some real-world everyday benefits, not just the form. In this course you will learn the beginners skills that result in a more relaxed body and mind, increased energy and energy flow. These skills can be used for clearing illness, improving health, increasing energy, having a clearer mind and experience spiritual joy.

The benefits of practicing a high level art…

The Art of Shaolin Cosmos Qi Gong is both deep and rich in its skills and outcomes and in the past took practitioners many decades of practice to gain the benefits. As a result of the distilled teachings of our Grandmaster - Wong Kiew Kit, 4th generation successor of the monk Jiang Nang, from the Shaolin Temple, we are able to pass on these essential skills in a much shorter time. People who have practiced with our school have reported positive benefits from taking just one course.


Who is this course for?

This course is obviously useful for beginners or those who have never practiced Qi Gong (Chi Kung) before – it sets them on the right road with some essential skills that can put into practice right away. If you are an already skilful Qi Gong practitioner this then becomes a Masterclass.
