Chan Mi Gong meaning 

Chan Mi Gong, the „Spinal Qigong“ is a millennia-old method of the Buddhist Zen and Tibetan Mi Schools for holistic healing and healthy conservation of body and mind.

What does Chan Mi Gong mean?

Qigong can be translated as „secret exercises that lead to meditative immersion“.
The exercises were only transmitted orally over the millennia.
Grand Master Liu Han Wen,
propagator and carrier of the knowledge of Chan Mi Gong
wrote down the exercises for the first time.

Was it Chan Mi Gong?

„If you want to know the truth that is hidden behind Chan Mi QiGong,
it should be practiced. „

Liu Han Wen

Chan Mi Gong is also known as „Spinal Qigong“ because all of its movements
start from the spine.
The Chan Mi Gong exercises are based on a fundamental exercise,
which is a high-level exercise as well:
In a deep state of relaxation, the spine is waved up and down vertebrae after vertebra.
This is how we rediscover the four possibilities of movement of the spine:
Waves, pendulums, turns, windings.
The entire body is involved.

„Where there is free flow, there is no pain.
Where there is pain, there is no free flow. “
Classic Chinese saying

What is the goal?

From a physical point of view, little by little we dissolve stagnation and bodily deposits .
This helps with restricted mobility in the vertebrae and tension in the back and pelvis.
The aim is to experience the spine swinging freely between heaven and earth like an antenna
and thus to be in constant exchange with our sources of energy.

The principles

Surrender, release and enjoyment.
They are the key to the permeability of movements through our spine and the entire body.

Where is Chan Mi Gong from?

The exercises are very old and date back to the Chan Buddhism, the Diamond Way of Buddhism,
which in Tibet was strongly influenced by the shamanic rites of Bon, the “primeval world view” of the Tibetans.

Chan Buddhism was later transferred to Japan and established there as „Zen“.
