“Qigong is the rite or the prayer of ancient Daoism- and since Daoism has no dogma, since it is indeed decisively anti-dogmatic, qigong and the shapes and movements which constitute qigong are very close, I think, to the spiritual shapes of what I call the Original Soul…a pure soul, a soul, that is, whose mistakes so-called are also its medicine and its cure. Qigong is the bodily experience of that soul- and the soulful experience of the body. The two move back and forth. The soul is traded with the body, and the body with the soul. And this is qigong’s deepest healing secret…” ~Zhenzan Dao
