European Zhineng Qigong

My Story

Here we have gathered our participants’ stories about what improvements they have achieved by practicing with us. By practicing qigong, you can improve your physical and mental health. Since we all are individuals with different starting points, the health improving results show themselves in many different ways. What is important is that everyone has the opportunity to improve their health through the training and this is confirmed by the personal stories.

Autumn Courses 2017

Published: 10 Oct 2017

ezq Loga 70x70

In about a month, our two highly appreciated Autumn Courses will be held in Karis, Finland and in Bergen, Norway. The Autumn Courses are four days long residential courses from Thursday to Sunday. Everyone who has participated in a week-end course in Hold qi up with us is welcome to join.

During the Autumn Courses, we train what we previously have learnt during the basic course but we also try to practise in a similar way as at our Summer Courses, which is the best training we have got to offer. Apart from training a lot of Hold qi up together, we also have time to acquaint ourselves with the Qigong philosophy and to go deeper into how we practise Qigong, not only in the training hall but also in everyday life.

The Autumn Courses are suitable for beginners, who for example wish to try to practise a bit more before joining a longer course, but also for experienced participants who wish to fill up with qi with winter at hand. The courses usually offer pleasant company and it is a good opportunity to meet and talk to other Qigong practisers.

Calligraphy "Harmony" - pre-order on our website

In the summer of 2019 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of our 18 day Summer Course. A few years ago, for our 20th anniversary, participants had the opportunity to buy a hand written calligraphy of the word "Qi". Many have said that the calligraphy is a nice addition to their training room which helps them to get in the mood for practice.

For this Summer Course, you have the opportunity to buy another calligraphy. This time, of the Chinese word for "Harmony". The calligraphy serves to spread a harmonious atmosphere and potentially help practitioners get into and sustain a state of peace and harmony. The calligraphy comes in a photoframe with the dimensions 18x24 cm (13x18 cm picture size with passepartout). You may choose between either a black or white frame, the calligraphy may either be standing or hanging on the wall. The price is 500 SEK. Only you who join the Summer Course this summer are able to get one (maximum one per person). We only have a limited number and cannot guarantee that everyone gets one.

Pre-order of the calligraphy "Harmony"

Book your calligraphy by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and write which color of the frame you wish. If there are any left, we will send you a confirmation email with payment information.

Learn More About Qigong, Meridians and Acupoints

Many of our participants who practice Zhineng Qigong wish that they would be able to help their loved ones with different kinds of health problems. What we mainly recommend is to invite others to join a Qigong course. However, sometimes there might be obstacles, for various reasons, to attend a course. A Tuina treatment may in such cases be an alternative in helping family and friends. In addition, it may create curiosity and interest to later wanting to join a course.



Tuina is an umbrella term for different kinds of body therapy, and what we teach is called Acupoint Tuina. During the course you learn about the meridian system and acupoints, which also can give you who have practiced for a long time understanding and insights about Qigong. To get better effects from Tuina, the practitioner/therapist must have power and strength, and this you get by practicing Qigong.

Weituo Jin

In conjunction to the Tuina course we therefore teach Weituo Jin, a Qigong method with the purpose of building power and strength in the practitioner/therapist. To learn Weituo Jin is mandatory if you want to learn Tuina. The method is also good to practice for therapists working in other areas – to be able to provide better treatments for others but also to build yourself up.

The qi-field

When you join a Tuina course for the first time you also have to learn Weituo Jin (2+2 days). As during all of our other courses we practice in our strong qi-field for these four days, which gives us a lot and helps us to get good results. If you want to learn more about the qi-field, click here. If you only want to practice Weituo Jin, you can book 2 days only.

During the spring 2019 we will arrange these courses in Gothenburg May 2-3 and in Stockholm May 30 – June 2.

Tuina helped Gun-Erna with whiplash, serious tremors and a complicated fracture

“I noticed at once that it was effective. The pain markedly lessened. I had more energy, could concentrate more, and also slept better.”
This is what Gun-Erna writes about the effects that came when she started to get Tuina treatments by her son. She has continued to get Tuina every time they’ve seen each other and become better and better. Among other things, pains from a serious traffic accident have been greatly reduced.

Practising Qigong at any place and any time. Share your experiences (Tip us up)!

One of the advantages of practising qigong is that you can keep practising even when
you are travelling. Lynn from Ekenäs in the southwest of Finland has practised with us
for several years. Now she and her family have taken a year off and are touring New
Zeeland. When we asked her what about practising during the trip she wrote this:

“When we toured New Zeeland for five weeks with the whole family in a camper (mobile
home or RV) I war really enjoying my practising. The camper was
too cramped but in every camping site we found, my husband and I, found a small
area for our practise. Sometimes between two campers,
sometimes next to a motorway but also beautiful calm places like meadows, beaches and
next to rivers. New Zeeland is an incredibly beautiful country so the great problem was
keeping your eyes shut! Travelling a lot in the camper in a short
time I felt a profound gratitude to be able to start the morning by practising qigong. I felt
that the body got more supple and I could charge up on energy.”
