Eastern remedies for the west
Yi Xue culture is an ancient system of life cultivation that focuses on using the original creative Yi Qi – the power of the universe – to promote personal good health, family harmony and world peace.
Grand Master (Chin) Wei Ling Yi is a world-renowned and recognised authority in the science of Yi Xue culture. He is president of the World Qigong Head Office Association and since 1995 held seminars workshops and has lectured widely in Europe, America and other parts of the world.
Next month Mr Wei, accompanied by a teaching team comprising six Chinese and German professionals, will visit Malta to conduct a special workshop entitled ‘Yi Xue Kai Zhi – Development in performance for children’. This is a pilot project to be launched this summer in collaboration with the Education Ministry’s Education Division, St Thomas More College, St Clare College, the Directorate of Special Services and HSBC.
The sleep-in workshop will include two simultaneous courses: one for students and another for parents or guardians. There will also be a special weekend course for the general public.
Kai Zhi teaching is one area of the Yi Xue culture that aims at children’s wellbeing, maintenance of physical health, stability of the emotional self and the development of a positive mindset. Research in this field of life science has also shown it can result in improved school performance, concentration and memory.
The course for parents or guardians will be focused on achieving balance in health of body, mind and soul. It is not sufficient to work only with the children, as the adults need to be able to advise and guide their children through all phases of school life, lending a hand or spending more time with them, says Mr Wei.
The pilot project is being organised by the Yi Xue Life Cultivation Malta Association which is run by local volunteers who meet regularly every Wednesday for practice.
Wei Ling Yi teaches the Lotus Great system, which is the highest form of this ancient health practice.
The underlying idea is to incorporate the experiences of the east and the west in science and culture, and with the resulting assimilation promote a more humane civilisation in harmony with the natural environment.
Promoting the practice of Yi Xue life cultivation in the western scientific community is particularly important because if scientists practice it, it would enhance their abilities to reach new dimensions of knowledge still unknown today.
The Lotus Great system developed by Mr Wei makes use of the classical methods of relaxation, breathing accompanied by body movements, exercises in motion, meditation, visualisation, mantras, and transmission of Qi. It is based on the Chinese tradition of the existence of a universal life-energy principle called ‘Qi’. This energy is fundamentally necessary for the vital functions of all beings.
Qi circulates within the body in the subtle energy channels called meridians and provides energy to every cell and organ. Illnesses develop if the energy circulation is disturbed for over a certain time, if blockages emerge in the flow of Qi or if the body absorbs negative information and accumulates it. A healthy energy flow can be negatively affected by toxic, destructive substances, by harmful mental ‘fields’ as well as by mental or psychic processes.
Mr Wei has developed a system of different exercises to combat various illnesses, including terminal diseases. These exercises reactivate the energy course in the body and make it harmonious by dispelling and eliminating harmful energies.
By practising regularly, the reception of oxygen in the body increases and the cellular metabolism improves.
The whole central nervous system, particularly the cerebral cortex and the pituitary gland are stimulated. The electromagnetic field surrounding the human body becomes stronger and more harmonious. The mental and the physical aspects of the person would be balanced.
Meridians and blood vessels relax and are more permeable, thus improving the quality blood.
The immune system is stimulated and increases the activity of anti-cancer defence cells. If a person manages to practise regularly cancer cells can even be destroyed.
