Body & Sound: Primordial Qi Gong

Primordial Qi Gong (Chi Gung, Chi Kung) also known as ‘Wuji Gong’ (Formelss Form) and ‘Enlightenment Tai Chi’ dates back 800 years to its inception in the 13th Century. It was created by Taoist Immortal, Chang Sen Feng from Wudan Mountain, which was recently made famous in the film ‘Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon’.

Very easy to learn, this magical form combines elements from Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Feng Shui (directionology) and internal alchemy (potent form of taoist meditation). It is designed to cultivate the ‘Subtle Breath’ or chi flow of ‘Heaven and Earth’, flowing and fusing it through the human body. The movements gather chi into the core of the body in graceful, effortless spirals. Energetically it is the opposite of martial Tai Chi Chuan forms, which emit chi outwardly for self defence and the manipulation of another’s energy.

Primordial Qi Gong gradually dissolves the physical and karmic layers of tension in both the physical and energy body. It opens up a profound sense of inner space, where ‘original spirit’ – the face of the soul before birth – can reveal itself. This inner space is called Wuji (Supreme Unknown, Formless) hence its name is sometimes known as ‘Wuji Gong’ or the ‘Formless Form’… a movement ‘form’ for glimpsing the formless.

In fact Wuji Gong is so magical that almost anyone who does it – including the beginner – experiences profound perceptions of deep soul centering and expanded energy flow. Repeat practice of the form deepens the blissful sense of peace – the feeling of returning to one’s true inner nature.

The form was designed for spiritual awakening though and has many additional beneficial medical effects; improving overall health, vitality, strengthening the organs, lowering blood pressure, regulating the body’s thermostat to name a few. It can be practised in a light, effortless way using easy weight shifts and balanced movements to activate the energy body.

Ideal for all levels of age and fitness – Primordial Qi Gong is easy to learn, taking around 10 minutes to practice as a flowing dance and around 15-20 minutes with a more meditative approach.
