|A devout Buddhist, Dr Yu
combined the standing meditative postures and physical exercises of yi
quan with the qi-channel opening methods of Tibetan Lamas.The resulting
achievement was the formation of a highly successful system for
teaching qi cultivation, which yielded one of the most elevated forms
of Qi Gong: the ability to project strong Qi at a distance.This ability
is called Kong Jing or "empty force".
Dr. Yu and his wife, Madam Min Ou-Yangcame to the
United Sates in 1981 to participate in a Qi Gong study at Stanford
University.After Dr. Yu died in 1983, Madam Ou-Yang stayed in San

Qi Gong meditation style, the heart of our training program, can be
defined as a "purifying internal experience", during which an
individual learns to relax and be natural in the process of building
qi. This means that a student of qi does not merely relax the
body musculature, but relaxes both mind and body -what we refer to as
the whole body. This meditation is called "internal" because the
process originates from within and its effects emanate outward to
benefit the whole body. It is considered "purifying" because we attempt
to clear our minds and cleanse our bodies of blockages; we also call
this "natural" or "nature's way". This kind of internal exercise yields
good health, balance, body wholeness, and improved qi.
