Taoist Light Qigong for Self-Healing

History of Taoist Light Wellness

Taoist Light Qigong Retreat Center was founded by Master Shitai Zhou and Chiyan’s parents Yuzhen Han and Weiye Wang on Xing Long mountains in LanZhou, China in 1980. Soon after, they created a sub-center in Xi’an city, China. At times, two particular buses went back and forth to pick up clients from airport and train station.

With the three Qigong Masters’ help and support, Chiyan founded Taoist Light Wellness in Santa Barbara in 1993 to perform private healing sessions and she also taught Taoist Light Qigong in UCSB Community Center as well as in Santa Barbara College of Oriental medicine.

The Mid-autumn Festival Tune


míng yuè jǐ shí yǒu bǎ jiǔ wèn qīng tiān

明 月 几 时 有?把 酒 问 青 天。

When will the moon be bright and clear?

With a cup in my hand, I ask the deep blue sky.


bù zhī tiān shàng gōng què jīn xī shì hé niān

不 知 天 上 宫 阙,今 夕 是 何 年。

Not knowing what is the time of year

would be tonight in the palace on high.


wǒ yù chéng fēng guī qù yòu kǒng qiòng lòu yù yù gāo chù bú shèng hán

我 欲 乘 风 归 去,又 恐 琼 楼 玉 宇, 高 处 不 胜 寒。

Riding the wind, there I would fly.

Yet I wonder if the jade and crystal mansions would be too high and freezing.


qǐ wǔ nóng qīng yǐng hé sì zài rén jiān

起 舞 弄 清 影,何 似 在 人 间?

Dancing with my shadow, how does it feel in the world?


zhuān zhū gē dī qǐ hù zhào wú mián

转 朱 阁,低 绮 户,照 无 眠。

Turning around the red pavilion, stooping through the gauzed window, the moon shines upon the sleepless.


bù yīng yǒu hèng hé shì cháng xiàng bié shí yuān

不 应 有 恨,何 事 长 向 别 时 圆?

The moon should bear us no ill-will, why is it oft full and bright when people part from each other?


rēn yǒu bēi huān lí hé yuè yǒu yīn qíng yuán quē cǐ shì gǔ nān quān

人 有 悲 欢 离 合, 月 有 阴 晴 圆 缺,此 事 古 难 全。

People may have sorrows and joys, partings and reunions,

as well as the moon is bright or dim, wax and wane. Rare is perfect since the ancient times.


dàn yuàn rén cháng jiǔ qiān lǐ góng chán juān

但 愿 人 长 久,千 里 共 婵 娟。

May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together,

even if we are hundreds of miles apart.


Su Shi was a famous poet in North Song (960-1127). In this poem, the emotions of joy and sadness combine with philosophical thinking reflecting the author’s feeling of complexity and contradiction, as well as passion of life and the optimistic view.



Searching the WAY

Since most self-cultivators’ life purpose is to achieve awakening state in this one life time. Usually only the cultivator himself can realize he has reached this goal. There is a story about a man who went out traveling searching the Tao (the way), he finally got back to the temple and saw his teacher still read all the books day and night but could not get it. It happened that a little fly was trying to go through the window covered with paper. He decided to convey a message to his teacher by saying: “ Oh, little fly, don't you see the door is wide open, why are you still trying so hard to pass through the old window paper?” His teacher then realized that his student had already obtained Tao.

Since the Tao is invisible and untouchable, we often follow a great teacher who has obtained Tao and manifested enlightenment in them. When cultivators ask what are the characteristics of a Taoist or Buddhist who have reached enlightenment?

Basically two things: no attachment to self and no attachment to certain ways, thus there is no suffering or agony as a consequence.

Attachment is not diligent practice, attachment will root more pain and discomforts; but a diligent practice leads non-attachment and fulfillment of cultivation.

So keep up with your practice to non-attachment following the natural flow and go to obtain your Tao/the Way. You will know once you are there/here.
