Discover How to Harness Your Life Force Energy Through Qigong to Boost Your Vitality, Rejuvenate Your Spirit, Strengthen Your Immune System, and Even Slow Aging


Have you imagined moving through life with ease and grace, as if life were a joyous dance and the music never stopped?

At the end of each day, would you like to be able to say, “My heart is full and I am happy and energized?”

The bridge that can carry you from that dream to the reality of living with a full and happy heart was built thousands of years ago in China...

Qigong masters of millennia past were the original scientists of the subtle body working with the circulation of Qi (life force energy) through coordinated flowing movement and deep rhythmic breathing for increased health, happiness, awareness, serenity, longevity and more.

Over centuries, they developed and refined methods that shifted stagnant or blocked energy patterns in the body. When we experience trauma or even everyday stressors, we can accumulate dense, blocked energy that can persist for decades and compromise our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing.

The specific Qigong practices they perfected can shift these blocks, “recharge” areas depleted of Qi, and activate your body’s self-healing powers.

The result? A greater flow of energy throughout your system, which in turn increases immune function and supports overall good health.

Just a few minutes a day of focused practice can produce dramatic improvements in your happiness, wellbeing and stress levels. You may even see significant progress in healing longstanding health issues.

Yes, Qigong is that powerful... and the Western medical establishment has taken notice.

There’s now a growing body of scientific data supporting the wisdom of this ancient practice and the quantifiable results it delivers.

In Qigong for a Happy Heart, you will be given essential daily practices from Wisdom Healing Qigong the specific lineage taught in this program which will help you take better energetic care of your body and establish a new baseline of health and happiness for a long and vibrant life.

You’ll learn about the role of Qi energy and how to connect heart, mind and body to cultivate abundant Qi flow for your health, healing and daily life. When your heart is joyful, your energy is flowing freely, helping you feel more creative, resilient, positive and engaged.

You’ll receive specific teachings and daily practices designed to help you awaken your happy heart, celebrate the goodness inherent within you, and discover your true capacity to skillfully manage your health, happiness and stress levels.

And if you’re already experiencing the benefits of Qigong, you’ll discover new techniques as well as opportunities to refine your current practice. A happy heart is defined not only emotionally but also through its role in shaping the body, mind and spirit. The teachings of Wisdom Healing Qigong remind us that when your heart is happy, you can dance through life with a greater sense of peace and fulfillment.

The Importance of an Authentic Teacher


During Qigong for a Happy Heart, you’ll have the special privilege of studying with Master Mingtong Gu, one of the world’s pre-eminent teachers of Qigong for more than 20 years.

Master Gu is renowned for his teachings and healings with people of all ages, including many living with trauma, illness and aging challenges.

Through The Chi Center, the organization Master Gu built in the West, he has trained thousands of students and teachers to work with Qi in ways that produce tangible, real-world results.

Over seven modules, you’ll take a journey with Master Gu into Wisdom Healing Qigong fundamental teachings, gentle movements, ancient healing sounds, and meditations.

You’ll benefit not only from his verbal teachings but also from video-recorded exercises that demonstrate the proper movements, sounds and ways to direct the flow of energy.

You’ll discover how to circulate Qi to weaker parts of your body and deepen your understanding of the energetic connections between your body, emotions and spirit.

You’ll also work with the principle of “integrative oneness,” which allows you to truly experience your consciousness, heart, body and mind as a united whole.

These principles of energetic healing can help you address and heal any underlying issues that can result in imbalance, disharmony and disease.

Through video, Master Gu will illuminate the philosophical and practical components of working with Qi and give you simple practices and positions that allow you to connect with the energy that supports and nourishes your heart, body, mind and spirit.

What You’ll Discover in These 7 Modules

During the 7-part program, Master Mingtong Gu will joyfully guide you through the role of Qi energy and how to connect heart, mind and body to cultivate abundant Qi flow for your health, healing and daily life. Master Gu has selected Wisdom Healing Qigong teachings focused on cultivating a happy heart, and will guide you in the steps to explore this powerful Qigong lineage and to create your own Qigong practice for energy abundance.

Each class session will build harmoniously upon the next and will include a video presentation by Mingtong Gu featuring the teachings, demonstrations, and/or guided movements, meditations and visualizations for that class. You can practice along with Master Gu as he demonstrates these practices and return to the recorded version when the class is over to maintain your practice.

Practice Component: The deep benefits of Qigong come from practicing the sounds, movements and meditations yourself, so you can feel and experience their transformative effects. Each session will help you to develop a practice of your own.

Qigong for a Happy Heart is appropriate for all ages and abilities and does not require special clothing or exercise equipment.


Module 1: Why Is the Happy Heart in Qigong Essential to Joy & Health?


What is your true potential for happiness? In this first module, we’ll explore how to connect with our feelings and how to release the energy blockages that are disrupting our chances for joy and wellness. We’ll introduce the “inner smile” practice to begin our journey into awakening a happy heart and to intentionally release old patterns in how we respond to stress, illness, pain, irritation and disappointment. We’ll explore the steps in Wisdom Healing Qigong to heal the whole self: mind, body, heart and spirit.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • The definition of energy, a.k.a. qi or chi

Module 2: Cultivating the Happy Heart in the Physical Body


We’ll explore the Qigong perspective on the role of energy in our physical body with regard to awakening a happy heart. We’ll see what happens within our body and brain when we feel negative emotions, and how this contraction opens us to illness, injury and premature aging. We’ll establish how Qigong helps us reconnect our mind-body, release tension, and bring joy into our movements as we progressively build flexibility, strength, posture and grace.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How you can experience the flow of chi in your physical body to deepen your Qigong practice

We’ll delve further into the teachings that open our heart’s capacity to respond to stress, grief and disappointment in new, healthier ways. Through our Qigong practice we can learn how to heal from the stories of our life, so that our heart is open and resilient again. Because everything in life is connected, we can’t simply throw a feeling of stress and anxiety away. Instead we’ll transform it through healing Qigong sounds so it doesn’t negatively affect our body or mind, or dampen our ability to feel joy.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • The role of stories in your past challenges and illnesses, and how to let them go

Guided Practice:

  • Healing sounds for your lung system to transform grief into compassion, sympathy and deep knowing

Module 6: Connecting With the Compassion of Our Spiritual Self


We’ll explore the deep value of fostering a happy heart on a spiritual level. Within each of us is a deep wisdom and connection with all of life that we can learn to cultivate, allowing us to contribute healing joy to ourselves and to all beings. Through these teachings we awaken our awareness of chi, especially in times of stress and challenge. We’ll also engage in visualization teachings that help us illuminate our smiling heart and share it with the world.

Practice Guidelines & 100 Day Gong Chart
PDF From Master Mingtong Gu


Practice is the key in Qigong! This Gong Chart makes it simple to record every Wisdom Healing Qigong practice, and it includes tips to stay focused. Master Gu invites students to start practicing one day at a time to allow the mind-body-heart-spirit to connect on new levels during the course. What is a Gong? “Gong” means “practice of.” The goal for this course is to aim towards 50 days of practice (7 weeks), and then 100 days to realize wellness benefits. When the first 50 Day Gong is completed, you can receive a bonus teaching directly from Mingtong via The Chi Center. (The Gong Chart includes information about how to contact The Chi Center.)

Master Gu helps make Qigong practice easier to start and to maintain with this Guide. We all have resistance to changing our routines, even when they aren’t serving us. Through Qigong we learn we can change these patterns in mind and body through dedicated practice. This primer offers practice tips from Master Gu and from his conversations with students to help students take those steps to find time and focus for practice. The ancient masters recommended 100 days of dedicated Qigong practice for the student to realize new patterns for health and healing. In modern times, neuroscientists now confirm that the brain can create new neural pathways, but it takes a dedicated routine.


What Graduates of Master Gu’s Courses at The Shift Network Are Saying...

I found this course to be such a joyful and deeply peaceful experience. My body is happy with me now. Master Mingtong Gu shares "Haola" and presence that reaches through cyberspace right into my heart. I was also delighted with the reminders, explanations, class materials and support that The Shift Network provided. It was truly the best online experience I have ever had. Blessings and blissings...
Reverend Pomaika’i, Holualoa, Hawaii

Mingtong makes me smile inside and out. He has "touched" me spiritually, energetically and physically. Following his beautiful, gentle practices have become part of my daily morning habit and I love it! Thank you for sharing your journey and developing a path for me to explore a healthier and happier life!
Kathleen, Fish Creek, Wisconsin

The sound healing exercises have become an important start to my day. I love the experience of contacting my organs and body in the morning this way. It’s almost like the safety checks a pilot makes prior to a flight. There is so much wisdom. I listen to replays and gain more and more understanding of information that is provided. Mingtong has a captivating way of teaching.
Yvonne Praschma, Newfield, New York

This was my second course with Mingtong Gu, and it was as always, amazing. Just being in the Qi and Mingtong Gu’s presence fills one with pure joy, and it doesn’t matter that the class is online, it feels as if it’s in person. I looked forward to every Tuesday evening and wouldn’t miss it for the world. I have always felt open, energized and elevated after each class. I absolutely loved it. I hope more and more people study Qigong... I feel we need it more than ever.

In these profoundly unsettling times, Mingtong’s teachings of Wisdom Healing Qigong moved deeply into my system on all levels, helping to create more presence and consequently more balance. His generous and clear discussions (interspersed with sweet humor) of the principles underlying the different aspects of the work enhance the experience of the practices and help strengthen my commitment to the inescapable necessity and beauty of PRACTICING what is learned. I am grateful to him for his work and to The Shift Network’s professional presentation of the program. Thank you.
Michele Calistoga, California

Before taking the course: for the period of 1.5 years I’ve been having shoulder pains so bad that I was ready to go for the surgery. I’m absolutely pain FREE now! I tried to do meditation several times before and never succeeded; in this course I finally learned how to do this and it helps me daily. I feel better; my outlook to existence improved so much more than I could imagine. I just went through a divorce when all my life fell into pieces, and I don’t know where I would be now if not for YOUR help. You really saved me in the most difficult situation; you helped me want to live again. Thank you!

As Mingtong says, Just Do It! Every day brings new mental or emotional and physical freedom that transforms old stuck patterns into a liberating, happy life. Physically I would say there has been 95% improvement in chronic conditions that I have lived with for many years, and emotionally I am feeling more at ease with life and its journey. I also realize this is just the first step in a lifelong commitment and I eagerly look forward to following this gentle and life-transforming age-old wisdom.
Manuel, Sydney, Australia

The instructor Mingtong is truly amazing and a gift. The Shift Network staff gives the best and most generous support to help you maintain the practices.
Asha Kher, New Jersey

I loved everything about this course and wish it could go on and on forever. It awakened me deeply and was also gentle and organic. Thank you.
