Qigong: Real or Fake?

qigong testimonial

What I like about Discover the Fire is (you’ll laugh) the atmosphere. It’s in accordance with the mood or philosophy of Qigong and Tai Chi. There are no click me buy me messages that really put me off, there is no pretentious talk and self-promotion. The exercises seem perfectly selected both for beginners and slightly more experienced practitioners.

qigong testimonial #2

Hi Jeff,

I have been religious every morning about the magnification meditation since you have sent it, and it has done wonders. I was having all kinds of trouble with my back and other issues and I’m happy to say that I can feel the strength returning and the pain is gone. I cannot thank you enough for bringing this practice into my life.

Its funny that I can remember distinctly when you first told our group that we would be doing a “Standing” meditation. I can remember saying to myself, “this will NEVER work for me”. Well, I am so happy to be disappointed in that memory!!

Thank you again, your work is like none other.

God bless you,

qigong testimonial #5

It is really great to have a wide range of Qigong sources available on the Internet through the “Discover the Fire” website. It is very convenient and easy to use. The videos are really a big help and are almost like taking a live class. It will be very beneficial to have all of this information in one place.
