• but first and formost safe and risk-free
If we belong to those Ren Xue practitioners who don’t seem to get sick anymore, or to those who can deal with injuries and disease self-sufficiently, or if we are some of which have started their Ren Xue journey at a point of serious disease or chronic pain:
We Ren Xue practitioners experience regularly positive results in our health and life development. At first sight those results are often regarded as surprising or extraordinary. But after only a few days of learning and application more clarity is established regarding the causes of these results. Further education and application clears up much more.
We feel a great responsibility towards our society, as well as a strong necessity to provide our fellow human beings with the necessary conditions which make it possible to experience such fullfilling results for themselves. For everybody who would like this.
The Preliminary Objective is to promote Ren Xue and Yuan Gong Qigong through workshops, talks, events, collaboration with clinics, physicians, medical facilities and research institutes…
According to our experience, Ren Xue retreats are an extraordinary opportunity to promote health. One learns how to improve or dissolve serious diseases and chronic pain. Retreats can also be advocated as a supportive method for use in therapies, rehabilitation or clearing away persisting physical problems, diseases or pain. Thus, our health may be restored in an effective, efficient and safe manner.
During the retreat, the self-healing mechanisms are maximized. Consequently, the positive results keep on developing after the retreat, especially if the theories and methods learned continue to be practiced.

Huaxia Qigong Clinic & Training Center, simply known as the Center, normally had more than four thousand people living there, including doctors, patients, teachers, trainees, and supporting personnel. The Center was established in 1988 in the city of Zigachong and later, in 1992, relocated to the city of Qinhuangdao. In 1995, it again expanded to an old army hospital in the city of Fengrun, two hours by train from Beijing. It was directed by its founder, Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong grandmaster and physician trained in both Western and Chinese traditional medicine. This hospital was the largest of its kind in China and probably in the world. The Center avoided medicines and special diets in favor of exercise, love, and life energy. It was a non-profit organization and was recognized by the Chinese government as a legitimate clinic. Over the years, the Center has treated more than one hundred and eighty diseases, the overall success rate being more than 95%. Due to political reasons, the Center was closed in 2001.
I spent the entire month of May living in the Center, observing first hand how the hospital operates and interviewing more than one hundred people who have miraculously recovered from incurable diseases such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, severe depression, paralysis, and systemic lupus. Many times I was moved to tears while listening to these accounts of heroic struggle against disease. One mother told me that she was so weak that she couldn't even pick up a kitchen knife to kill herself and so attempted to end her life by not eating. But when her six-year-old son tried to spoon feed her a bowl of milk while her eleven-year-old held a towel to wipe any spills, she decided to live at any cost. Since doctors couldn't help her, she turned to the center and, against all odds, recovered. She is now a teacher at the Center.
When a person enters the hospital, he is diagnosed by a doctor, and then assigned to a class of fifty or so people for a 24-day treatment period. He spends most of his time practicing, eight hours a day without television, newspapers or telephone. Those who can stand up practice standing; those who can sit practice in their chairs; and those who can't move practice in their beds. I was moved by the dedication of these students.
Despite its amazing success at healing, the Center is little known even in China because of its policy of not advertising in newspapers or magazines. However, the Center is well known among its estimated eight million practitioners. Through word of mouth, thousands of people from all over China are coming to the Center every month. Indeed it has a great number of followers and the Center is the brain of this vast organization.
For example, a new way of demonstrating the effectiveness of chi for treating cancer has been developed. I witnessed a cancer patient being treated by four ChiLel teachers while the patient's bladder cancer was viewed on a screen via an ultra-sound machine, and monitored by two doctors. The cancer literally disappeared in front of my eyes in less than a minute as the teachers emitted Qi into the patient, dissolving the cancer! In fact, I videotaped this incredible act. Ten days later, I requested the doctors to double check if the patient's tumor was gone. Kindly enough the doctors put the same patient's bladder again on screen and we saw no trace of cancer. Later I was told that a major German TV station crew, visiting the Center a week before, had successfully videotaped the same process with other cancer patients.
The Center has over six hundred staff members, including twenty-six Western-trained doctors. Since no medicine is prescribed, there aren't any pharmacists. Doctors, who prefer to be called teachers, play only a minor role in this special hospital. Occasionally, they are called upon to attend emergency cases. Their main function is to diagnose patients when they come in to register and again after each 24-day training period.
Their diagnoses are classified into four categories for statistical purposes.
Cured: Symptoms disappear and appropriate instruments ( e.g. EKG, ultra-sound, X-ray, CT and so on) register normal.
Very Effective: Symptoms almost disappear and instruments show great improvement.
Effective: Noticeable improvements, and student can eat, sleep, and feel good.
Non-effective: No change or even worse.
According to "Summary of Qigong's Healing Effects on Chronic Diseases", published by the Center in 1991, data of 7,936 patients showed an overall effective healing rate of 94.96%. (15.20% cured; 37.68% very effective; 42.09% effective.)
In the Center, no matter how sick a person is, he is still addressed as a "student" never "patient". Why? Because he is learning an art the goal of which is to heal oneself, not to rely on doctors. Therefore no doctor-patient relationships exist.
Students are enrolled in a 24-days treatment program. The tuition fee is only one hundred yuan (about twelve dollars). Students can spend as little as six hundred yuan (about seventy dollars) per month! The Center is probably the most inexpensive hospital in the world and is truly a non-profit organization. Yet the Center is an independent, self-sufficient organization, without any help from government or private foundations.
How do they operate so efficiently? Because many of the doctors, teachers, and supporting personnel are former students who have recovered from serious illnesses themselves and have now returned voluntarily to "serve the sick", with very little pay. Teachers play the roles of doctor, nurse, social worker, cheerleader, parent, friend, brother, and sister. Their effectiveness is measured by the healing rate of their students.
Another reason for the Center's effective but low-budget operation is that it uses group therapy. Students lived in groups of four, eight or sixteen persons per room. By living in groups, students developed in a cooperative spirit of caring and loving toward each other. Many of those I interviewed had been rejected by their former hospitals as "incurable," and, therefore, had regarded the Center as their last hope. As though sailing on the same boat in the ocean, students bond together against their common enemy's disease.
Trained to Heal
Just as hospitals associate with medical schools to train young people to enter into the medical profession, the Center also has schools to train professionals. There is an Academy and one-month and three-month instructor training schools. The Academy, established in 1992, has a two-year training program for young men and women under the age of thirty who have the minimum of a high-school education. The one-month and three-months instructor-training programs are for anyone interested. I was told that there are typically more than a thousand students in both programs in school.
In addition, just as prestigious hospitals have research programs, the Center has many on-going research projects both on site and at different university campuses around the country. When I requested the person in charge, a retired college professor, to show me some published papers, he gave me two volumes of experiment data, as thick as a telephone book!
Besides doctors, teachers, and students, there are hundreds of supporting personnel, working in the office, cafeteria, bookstore, and so on. All of them are practitioners and they practice together in the morning and in the evening, about three hours a day.
I asked the founder, Lao-shi, why didn't he promote this to the world sooner. He replied that many people need proof whether Qi works or not. So instead of arguing with others, he preferred to work solidly by treating patients and collecting valuable data. As a result, tens of thousands of documented cases over a period of eight years have been collected and, "Now we are ready. Please tell the world that we exist and can benefit mankind."
