“Qigong is literally about self-healing, self-empowerment, it’s an inward process. It’s a self-awakening process.”


“You’re trying to figure out any way possible to fix them, but you know ultimately you can’t fix them until they’re ready to fix themselves.”


“The important foundation is your own connection with your own body.”


“Energy can transform from physical to non-physical, and also from one form to another form; then you know it’s beyond possible [to use energy to heal].”
