Zhineng Qigong is an integrated system of practice methods that includes dynamic forms, meditative static forms and spontaneous forms. All three practice methods guide a practitioner through the development of :
-emphasizes the interaction of energy outside of the body. Lift Qi Up Pour Qi Down Method or Peng Qi Guan Ding Fa:
Body & Mind Method or Xing Shen Zhuang:
-emphasizes the interaction of energy inside the body. Method to Unite Body And Mind
5 to 1 Method or Wu Yuan Zhuang
-emphasizes the interaction of energy within the central channel of the body. Method to Unite the Energies of the Five Internal Organs, the 5 Elements
All of the methods are designed based on the Hunyuan Entirety principle, their action is to return each of the levels of energies with which they operate to union or oneness.
These three being-methods were introduced in stages from 1980 to 1990 by Dr. Pang.
There are other methods which have not been reveled to the public since the level of consciousness of the general public was not deemed ready to perform them safely.
There are many other supplementary practices that Dr. Pang intended as essential stepping stones to be practiced in parallel with the three primary methods: Chen Qi, La Qi/Ro Qi, Dun Qian Fa (wall squatting) and most importantly, :
"We cultivate our own life energy through accessing nature's great store of life energy (qi). This approach produces quick results. But cultivating one's qi is not the most fundamental; cultivating one's spirit is. Mastery of qi is really achieved through mastery of consciousness. We use consciousness in a careful, craftsman-like way, to shape our life, to attain our goals. If we use modern terminology to name this process, we call it qigong..." "…in modern terms, qigong is just the refinement of consciousness to enhance the state of energy in the body. This leads to vibrant health, a harmonious body and mind, and an awakened spiritual life.
