“So what you’re telling me,” Brian said, “is that eating a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough every night is screwing with my qi?”
“No Qi, No Fee!!”
That was the slogan on my first qigong flyer back in 2004.

Whether you are an acupuncturist, a massage therapist, a reiki master, an energy healer, a psychic, a yoga practitioner, an interior designer (who uses feng shui), a spiritualist, or even a pianist — you can benefit from learning about qi.
And when you learn about the qi, you’ll learn that there are only 12 different things you can do with it.
There’s no question that daily practice is the key to success with qigong, tai chi, and any meditative art.
But many people fail to practice because they don’t understand the art of learning. They think that mistakes are a mistake!
