Kathy Rivera Wallace: I attended your National Event in Orlando before and was blown away seeing so many different types of people practicing Qigong together. What makes learning Qigong in big groups more powerful, and what do you think has allowed you to reach such a large audience?
Jeff Primack: Where two or more are gathered, a unified Qi field exists. Qigong breaks through people’s doubt with a tangible magnetic force. When a few thousand people practice Qigong in a convention center ballroom, the group energy from all the focused people makes the Qi far stronger than what we can achieve alone. The most spiritually profound practices are breathing exercises that deliver a type of ‘euphoric high’ from the oxygen and energy absorption.
Part of our success in sharing Qigong comes from the use of video-animation and specialized music allowing people to FEEL AND CONNECT TO QI POWERFULLY, which is the most important factor. Feeling energy pulsing through your body is a clear benefit, and men are especially drawn to the tangibility of Qigong. Feeling a ‘magnetic arc of energy’ flowing overhead and pulsing through the arms is heavenly divine.
KRW: I found the Qi so life changing. Can you outline the overall essence of Qigong for newcomers?
JP: The first goal of Qigong is to absorb EXTERNAL QI IN THE AIR we breathe and live inside of. Breathing techniques and graceful movements harness and absorb this energy directly. Your PERSONAL ENERGY IS INTERNAL QI, and this builds up quickly with practice and eventually “Overflows the Dan Tien”.
The most profound secret of Qigong is to raise energy up the spine to the pineal and pituitary glands. I’ve spent my life studying with different Qigong masters from all over the world and it’s fascinating to see, unlike professional athletes, that the oldest Qigong practitioners have the strongest abilities.
KRW: You’re currently teaching a Food-Healing class with a physician, Claudia Gabrielle, MD. How does the medical community respond to your teachings on using food to reverse specific diseases?
JP: To be honest, when I first began teaching Food-Healing in 2005, there was less interest from physicians than now. Due to more scientific studies now backing the food protocols I’ve shared the last 10 years, I have a lot more attention from doctors and have certified many in our Conquering Any Disease Food Healing system.
Dr. Claudia was deeply inspired by the Qi Revolution food component. She grew tired of prescribing Lipitor to every patient with high cholesterol, especially when studies now show high cholesterol is not even a key indicator for risk. Since meeting us last year, she’s helped countless patients with our food protocols for heart disease and is teaching a class with me to present her latest testimonials. Both Qigong and Food Healing are beneficial to reaching our highest potential.
KRW: I’m so excited that you will be conducting the 10th Annual Qigong National Event in Orlando. I know this is your biggest event and you often bring in guest Qigong Masters with special gifts. What high level presenters have you found for us this year?
JP: This year’s line-up may surpass anything we’ve ever produced. Real-Deal Tai Chi Master, Jesse Tsao, is a Qi-Angel defying the laws of force. In my opinion, he is at a very high level of Qigong. Yoda-like skill allows him to ground firmly and remain “unmovable” even with 10 huge men pushing him back. Jesse travels worldwide teaching martial arts experts, but he will tell you his heart dwells in the internal practice of Qigong. To train with the masters is a rare gift only good karma can bring. He will be honoring us with a visit to share his rooting insights and Qigong secrets.
Another master presenter joining the National Event is veteran Acupuncturist Tom Tam. He helps cancer patients with the application of energy in acupuncture needles. Master Tom Tam has compassionately practiced his special type of energy medicine in the Boston area for 20 years and is coming to share his wisdom.
There is rumor of a third master presenter coming, so special that we cannot mention their name. Stay tuned where the light abide, there’s no place to hide, look deep inside. See ad page ??.
