Primordial Qigong is a fun, 10-minute qigong form.
Primordial Qigong is attributed historically to Zhang Sanfeng, a legendary figure of the
14th century who has been attributed to being the originator of Tai Chi and many other
disciplines. However, unlike Tai Chi which was designed for martial arts, this form was
created for its spiritual power. It was kept private over the generations and was only
revealed recently in the modern era.
Practically speaking, Primordial Qigong is a fun 10-minute qigong form. However, this form
is more than just fun. Without being too dramatic, I dare say that this is one of the most
important qigong forms you will ever learn. It is extremely powerful and it is one of the few
forms that I myself practice every day without exception. Yes, it is just that good!
For starters, Primordial Qigong opens up your heart center more effectively than any other
qigong form I've encountered. Consequently this form can be viewed as a physical qigong
version of the Inner Smile. If it were "only" that, it would already be outstanding, but that is
just the beginning to the power behind this form.
Also called Wuji Gong, Primordial Qigong has relaxed, flowing, and spiraling movements.
Through a sequence of counter-clockwise turns, you turn into a deeper dimension of yourself
and into the Primordial . . . the Wuji, the supreme mystery. The movements themselves gather
energy from the cardinal directions and bring that into your being, like a vortex. The movements
are so powerful that they help accelerate your spiritual evolution. You don't need to sit and
meditate to expand your consciousness to higher levels; you just need to do this form, and the
form does all the work for you, effortlessly.
Primordial Qigong has a continuous sequence of counterclockwise movements that generate
an overall clockwise pattern, which reflects the evolution in time of your own spiritual
development. This pattern of counterclockwise turning that is embedded inside of a larger
clockwise pattern creates a spiritual friction that amplifies the power of the form. It would take
a whole book (or more) to reveal all of the metaphysical and cosmological secrets that are
embedded in this form.
Ironically, Michael Winn has done just that. He is presently writing a two-volume book on
Primordial Qigong--named by him "Tai Chi for Enlightened Love"--just to discuss the numerous
spiritual secrets associated with this form.
