Among other things, you can read about the plan for courses and trainings the coming spring and summer.
The dates are now set for our courses next summer. Like this year, we will arrange the 18 days online training course called SOL – Summer Course Training Online. Also, we will arrange a 9 days Summer Course on-site at Hjälmared’s Folkhögskola. The dates for SOL are June 24 – July 11 and the Summer Course will be held July 26 – August 4.
This year’s Summer Course got good feedback. To meet and practice together with many others again in our special Qi-field and to listen to and learn directly from Dongyue Su had been longed for. Also, our new course location, Hjälmared’s Folkhögskola, was appreciated.
During the course, accommodation and food are provided at Hjälmared’s Folkhögskola. Accommodation is provided in dormitories as well as in double and single rooms. It is also possible for three people to stay in a double room, in case one person sleeps on a mattress on the floor. Single rooms are limited in number and are primarily provided to those in need due to medical reasons.
Keep an eye on our website, the course will soon be added among upcoming courses.
The Winter Course will be arranged February 19-24 in Karlskoga and is preceded by a basic course in Shenxin Qigong February 17-18. You may register through our course list here at our website.
Option F, which we tried successfully before the summer, will return starting in September. Now it is new voices that give passwords. Every Tuesday and Thursday, Swedish time 19.30 – 20.30. The sessions are the same as option A, open to those who have participated in the basic course Hold Qi Up.
If you want to swap another training session included in Option A-E for one of the Option F sessions, you can do so without letting us know. Whether it is a single time or several. No matter what session you missed or for any other reason want to change.
Registration is done as usual via email@example.com, the price for option F is SEK 330 per month to be paid in advance.
The arm training session in the morning on Saturdays will from September be replaced with one we recorded with all 9-day course participants this summer. Here, too, it is a new voice that gives the passwords.

Researchers at Lund University engaged us to perform a training project, in which patients with chronic pain from lumbar spine disorders participated. Recently, a scientific article has been published from the project, with good results.
The project was initiated due to many of our participants having experienced major health improvements from European Zhineng Qigong training, including recoveries from neuropathic pain and chronic diseases with functions being restored.
The training project was conducted in Lund, Sweden, for 3 months and included teaching and training of Zhineng Qigong for 4 weekends, and 2 evenings per week. Daily individual training was also recommended, with the help of our training CD.
In the scientific article, it is described that patients were recruited through the Orthopaedic clinic at Skåne University Hospital and Primary healthcare centres. Thirty patients completed the evaluation, which included a 2-week pain diary and several health questionnaires. These were completed by the patients directly before and after the training project, after which the answers were analyzed at group level. The researchers also evaluated aspects of feasibility.
The patients have had symptoms for an average of 15 years and the majority have had degenerative lumbar spine disorder (disc herniation, spinal stenosis, spondylolysis-olisthesis, or segmental pain). It is mentioned that these conditions often affect neural structures, with symptoms such as pain in the lower back/buttocks/hip/leg/foot, weakness and numbness.
The health results showed statistically significant decreased pain intensity and increased time free from pain. Several patients were able to reduce or completely stop their intake of pain-relieving medication, whereas nobody needed to increase their intake. The researchers also investigated 7 additional lumbar spine-related symptoms other than pain. These also decreased significantly in number and the time free from these symptoms increased. Furthermore, spine-related disability, which is mentioned as common in chronic lower back pain, was also investigated and decreased significantly. Likewise, the health-related quality of life is often decreased, and various aspects of this were measured and showed significant improvements, including improved sleep and increased energy level/vitality.
About half of the patients had undergone lumbar spine surgery 1-6 years before the project, but still had considerable remaining symptoms. Also these patients reported significant improvements, which the researchers highlighted as interesting.

Dongyue Su’s strong recommendation for the good of our lives is that we join our qi-field as often as possible. This summer you have the chance to do it on several occasions. When we organize an event, it is always an opportunity to get a lot and fine qi.
The very best we can offer this summer is our Summer Course step one, 9 days just outside Alingsås at Hjälmareds Folkhögskola. We check in in the afternoon of August 6, have a lecture in the evening and finish the course at lunch on August 15. Best of all, Dongyue Su leads the course and we get to share his wisdom and understanding. Extra nice when we did not have that opportunity during the pandemic years. Strong training and strong qi-field. The course is also open to those who have not practised with us before. There are many registered already but there are still places left.
June 26 – July 13 we arrange SOL – Summer Course Training Online, for those who previously have participated in at least 9 days Summer Course with us. It is the same training course we had instead of the regular Summer Course during the pandemic. We train in the morning for 2 or 3 hours. You can participate 9 or 18 days. The course has given very good results for several, read more on our website under ‘course reports’.
In connection with the SOL course, Dongyue Su gives a newly recorded lecture online. It is given on two occasions, on Tuesday 20th of June and Sunday 25th of June. The time is 20.15 on both occasions. The lecture and the subsequent qi-regulation lasts about 30 minutes. You can then stay and participate in the daily online training between 21.00 – 22.00, even if you otherwise do not join that session. You can attend the lecture even if you are not attending SOL for 18 or 9 days.
If you have attended a Qi-comb course with us before, you can participate in our Qi-Comb Flu course on July 4th. It is given online, the time is 19.30 – 20.40 approx. The course is also a great way to give your comb more qi.
We arrange a weekend with SOL – Summer Course Training Online July 29 – 30. Also, VOL – Winter Course Training Online the weekend of August 19 -20.
Also, do not forget about the excellent opportunity of our daily online training. It will continue every day during the summer, even when we have our other arrangements.

Remember – the more qi, the more life.
