Qigong 5

Limitless Qi, Limitless Consciousness

Play page as audio

0:00 / 0:00

Qigong 5 is an important landmark in your journey into the Taoist arts of health and longevity. At the end of this level, you will have completed the 6 Basics forms of qigong, the Nine Self Massage Techniques, the Twelve Devas, Hua Tu Animals, the Immortals Guide to Self Massage and Breath Regulation, the Red Phoenix, The Wudangshan Five Animals, and the 8 postures of Standing Qigong.

Your training in Wudangshan Animal Qigong will be complete after learning the leopard, snake, and crane forms. The leopard trains speed and explosive power in tendon reaction, the snake trains finesse and elusive movement in the spine, and the crane channels energy from the base of the spine to the top of the head.

The completion of Immortals Guide and Red Phoenix Calisthenics culminates with forms that enhance memory and bring clarity to thinking by moving qi to the head.

The highlight of Qigong 5 is an evening practice that unites the limitless qi of the body with the limitless nature of our consciousness. In this union of breath, qi, and spirit, you will once again be open to the primordial life force of the Tao.

With the completion of Qigong 5, advanced methods of the Taoist Arts of Health and Longevity will be available to you. To learn more about them, visit and click on "Qigong Path."

The Qigong of Xiantianwujimen Taoism

Xiantianwujimen is a Taoist lineage founded by Chen Xiyi in 10th century China. “Xiantian” means primordial, “wuji” means limitless, and “men” means gate. The translated name of the lineage is Primordial Limitless Gate.

This lineage specializes in using qigong to simultaneously cultivate and transform body and mind. A hermit and household tradition, Xiantianwujimen has been transmitted uninterrupted for over a thousand years. Qigong techniques favored by this lineage include self-massage, tendon-changing, calisthenics, marrow washing, and breath regulation.

Instruction of Xiantianwujimen qigong is offered by Eva Wong, a 19th generation carrier of the lineage, and by instructors authorized by the lineage.
