At the same time, cultivated a team of teachers,  a new teaching model of “everyone can teach, everyone can learn”was established, and this model enabled Qigong to leap to a brand new state of benefiting the masses. During this period, some times, up to 3,000 students enrolled for one training session. 

2). Started public training on how to apply the external Qi, and it enabled new comers to be able to heal others via external Qi through a short period of training. Prior to this training, the skills of healing had been exclusive to a handful long term practitioners, therefore, the training was revolutionary in term of practical application of Qigong.

3). In 1981, published the very first comprehensive monograph on Qigong in Chinese Qigong history — “Qigong Tan Sui” ( meaning: indepth study on Qigong), which ended the predicament of lacking systematic theoretical guidance for Qigong’s practice and application.

1988-2001


1). In 1988, launched the Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Center, which combined functions of rehabilitation, training, and scientific research. Within the short first 3 years, the number of employees had increased from 24 people to over 600. Without any commercial advertisement, only through public praise of effectiveness of rehabilitation and training, monthly average number of students on campus reached more than 3,000, at one time even over 7,000 students resided on campus. Till end of 1999, the total number of student visits reached 300,000, the majority of them had severe or no cure medical conditions, which involved in 210 kinds of illness, however, the effectiveness of healing was greater than 95%. Since year 2000, due to the adjustment of Chinese government policy, the center had ceased taking in new students, and it closed down completely in July 2001.

3). Published a series of textbooks, for general, mid-level and junior college use; launched “Science of Zhineng Qigong” magazine, these works served as perfect theoretical guide for Qigong, Qigongology and practical application of Qigong Science. It was a great achievement in the development history of Qigong, and it made Qigong become a unique new science and a foundation of new human culture. Zhineng Qigong had become the  synonym of Qigong science.

2001 till now


1). Zhineng Qigong closed its center, to comply with Chinese government policy. Since then, only a small number of Zhineng Qigong teachers have engaged in teaching and healing work privately on a small scale, in mainland of China.  However, at the same time, there has been a rising interest and growth of Zhineng Qigong outside of China, in the sense of the number of students and its influence.

2). In 2012, Zhineng Qigong’s Xing-Shen-Zhuang (body & mind) method was adopted in college teaching textbook by Traditional Chinese Medicine bureau, which has been the only new Qigong method used for college since China was founded.
