Wild Goose Qigong - UK

 Nurture your mind, body and spirit the Qigong way 

Training in China with the Grandmaster 2017

We are delighted to announce that the first British Training Trip to China took place in October 2017

Wild Goose Qigong practitioners from the UK spent 8 days in Wuhan doing intensive training with Grandmaster Chen Chuangang. We went through:

  • 1st 64
  • 2nd 64
  • Kunlun Bagua
  • Soft Palms Qigong.
  • There was a considerable amount of theory to enable us to understand the benefits
We also went sightseeing in Wuhan and spent a few days visiting Wudang Mountain, which was shrouded in mist giving a great atmosphere!  Grandmaster Chen worked us hard with classes running from 9.00 am until 6.00pm! An amazing trip of contrasts in sightseeing, delicious food and a fantastic training opportunity which we all really appreciated. 

Training in China 2016

We were very fortunate to join Australian Qigong Master Simon Blow, on a training trip to Wuhan, along with some of his Australian students. Simon has studied Wild Goose Qigong with Grandmaster Chen Chuangang since 2007. He organises study tours to Wuhan annually so that students can have the opportunity to train Wild Goose Qigong with Grandmaster Chen Chuangang.

Initially we did not know what to expect. The Grandmaster is almost 90 years old and we expected him to be very frail and not very "hands on". How wrong could we be! If there is any proof to the fact that Wild Goose Qigong promotes health and longevity, it really must be him.

Our visit in May 2016 consisted of 4 full days of training (with him arriving at 6.30 am)  and our classes finishing around 5.00pm.

We then had a few days break to visit the Wudang Mountains and review what we had learned during free time between the sightseeing. Then we returned to Wuhan for another 3 full days of training!

During this visit we reviewed both the Wild Goose Qigong 1st 64 and the 2nd 64.

Jaki Turner says:
Taking the opportunity to train in China is a life enhancing experience.
The first-hand individual tuition and coaching from Grandmaster Chen emphasises the precision and accuracy of the movements in the original Wild Goose system handed down through the generations. It was fascinating to appreciate that the meaning of the movements is as clear now as it was in ancient times. Grandmaster Chen's warmth, enthusiasm and discipline is compelling.
As Master Simon Blow says, there is more to Qigong than learning the movements, the details and the Qi flow. Training in China also gives a deeper understanding of the origins of the Wild Goose system and its underlying Daoist philosophy.  This history and focus on harmony, effortless action and naturalness adds a further level to daily practice. Most importantly the trip was tremendous fun!

Wudang Mountains

During both  of our trips we had the opportunity to visit Wudang Mountain, one of China's most scenic spots and the home of the legendary Zhang Sanfeng. This is a really special Taoist area and the home of China's famous martial art "Wudang Quan".
The mountains are breath-taking in their beauty and have Temples that date back to the 1600's. The weather was varied from bright sunshine to dank, misty days!
