Learn Qigong Online

Are you interested in improving your overall health or are you in need of healing? I put together this collection of online courses so now anyone can learn Qigong online.

Qigong is an ancient art of self-healing that is capable of creating amazing change.

However…over the years I have come to the realization that most students never get anywhere with their practice.

No real change is created.

Qigong, the art of cultivating energy, ends up being nothing more than performing a simple set of stretching exercises.

This ancient art form, pronounced “chee gung”, is so much more than that, but you have to find the right teacher and the right system to even glimpse at the potential available to you.

Why I Started this Site

I created this online learning portal to spread the teachings of my Master, the amazing Qigong Healer and Medical Qigong Instructor, Master Binhui He.

Through the teachings of Master He I was able to heal a chronic stomach condition, and slowly emerge from the deep, dark cloud of depression that surrounded me.

My goal is to help as many people as possible who are in need of the powerful healing that Qigong can provide!

jeff_photoAbout the Founder

Discover the Fire is a dream project created by Qigong instructor Jeff Simonton to pass along the teachings bestowed to him by renowned Medical Qigong Teacher & Healer, Master Binhui He through convenient online learning.

Jeff resides in Durham, NC with his wife and son, and has studied a variety of martial arts since the time he was a child, which eventually led to his interest in the self-healing arts.

He began learning Medical Qigong back in the year 2000 and teaching it in 2003, and continues his studies today in Sin Tien Wuji Qigong, Original Yang Tai Chi, and Hop Gar Kung Fu under the guidance of Sifu Chris Heintzman and Grandmaster David Chin. 

Jeff has taught Qigong & Tai Chi Lessons and lectured at many fine institutions in North Carolina such as UNC Wellness Center, UNC Medical School, Teer House at Duke, and Meredith College.  He is dedicated to increasing awareness about the benefits of Qigong by providing access to online Qigong & Tai Chi lessons, retreats, and workshops.


About this Website

Through Discover the Fire I offer top level professional instruction in the self-healing art of Qigong.

This website is completely maintained by me and I provide all my own tech support.  I always try to reply within 24 hours (and typically much faster) but do allow a little time for me to answer your inquiries since I do not utilize a support team.

I enjoy providing personalize service to current students as well as visitors to the site who may have questions.  The small personal touch is something that is being lost in the world of big business and the online format.

I feel it is possible to maintain a personal connection even though we may not be communicating face-to-face.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have regarding how the Qigong training or even just to say hello if you are a fellow teacher or practitioner.

Why My Training is the Best

Frankly anyone that claims their training is the best or their system is superior to all others is either deluded or trying to mislead you.

There is a Buddhist expression I like to use that says, “The finger pointing at the moon is not the moon”. 

finger moonIt means that there can be a thousand different paths to the truth, but the paths are not the truth themselves.  They are still just paths.  So even if you are able to find the moon by following the pointing finger, always remember that the finger is not the moon itself. 

Once you are able to see the moon you no longer really need to look at the pointing finger.  This is when you are starting to advance with your practice.  The Qi (energy) flow will build and your awareness will grow to a point that you can easily tap into and feel your own energy at any point.  This is the truth.  This is seeing the moon without looking at the finger.

My hope and goal is that by following my pointing finger for a period of time you will eventually begin to see the moon on your own.  You will experience the directness of Qigong practice and your eyes will open a bit more to the world around you. 

Once this happens it will become easy to discern between full practice and empty practice.  Your insights will grow and you may see the world a little differently, and hopefully a little more clearly.  

This is a process, and not a fast one, but each step you take is worth taking.  The journey through self-cultivation is not always easy.  Sometimes it can be frightening, and other times amazingly beautiful.  Just know that as one of my students you will always have a finger pointing you towards the moon whenever you lose site of it.
