Qigong Practice - Absorbing the Essence

Qigong is an ancient healing system that has evolved over thousands of years to help improve people’s quality of life; it is a part of the holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The dynamic forms and inner meditations help regulate the meridian system, and this releases stress, increases health and longevity which help develop spiritual perception and awareness.

It comprises techniques taught to Simon by Grand Master Zhong Lun Long the 14th generation linage holder of the Wudang San Feng styles from Wudang Mountain, one of the sacred Daoist Mountains of China.

Simon Blow

Simon is a renowned master Qigong teacher and practitioner, dedicated to assisting others in maximizing their potential and improving their quality of life.

After a near fatal accident at the age of 19, and four years of intensive physical rehabilitation, Simon was told by one of Australia’s leading orthopaedic surgeons he would never again lead an active life. Determined to turn this grim prognosis around, Simon began to investigate different methods of healing and rejuvenation, which included acupuncture, osteopathy and Tai Chi. Four years later, Simon became a qualified Tai Chi instructor and in the years following, he began exploring the extraordinary power of the life force - Qi. By 1998, Simon had been awarded the title of Qigong Master in recognition of his deeper understanding and his ability to assist others in their own transformation of their Qi. Simon has received World Health Organisation certification in Medical Qigong clinical practice from the Xiyuan Hospital in Beijing.

After working for more 30 years to help spread the benefits of meditation, peace and love, and to help give people the opportunity of cultivating their internal energies, Simon believes the quest for self- realization is a continuing journey
