Yahoo Group Qiresearch for Science Updates

An ancient character for Qi
About a year ago, I joined a Yahoo group that has updates on scientific research regarding the use of qigong, Tai chi and medical qigong for healing. This group is called Qiresearch, and it includes some members of the research community.  Join the group if you want to get updates on the research results. A lot of studies are ongoing in the United States and Europe, and it is great to see the results as they come in.

This testing is an important step in assessing the validity of qigong techniques for overcoming specific health challenges, because many of the past studies were not well-designed trials.  As a scientist, I appreciate the more robust methods that are being used, which lends greater credibility to the numerous personal testimonials of the healing power of qigong.

  1. By freeing ourselves form worries, we free ourselves from sickness when our soul is at peace. But now as a beginner, we just need the discipline to get us doing it frequently to enjoy the tranquility and joy that meditation has to offer.
