Tibetan Qigong: A Path to Healing
In 2002 Tibetan Qigong classes were first introduced in Napa Valley. Since then many people have experienced the power and healing benefits of Tibetan Qigong, an effective self-healing practice. Students report that Tibetan Qigong keeps them centered during difficult times, reduces stress, makes their jobs easier, or that chronic pain has disappeared.
The Center for Tibetan Qigong – Napa Valley incorporated in 2008 as a California nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status. Our primary goals are:
- To reduce suffering by promoting the self-healing practices of Tibetan Qigong to enhance health, personal well-being and compassionate understanding and behavior.
- To train and certify new teachers to teach Tibetan Qigong methods and meditation in a manner that remains true to the Nyingma lineage practices brought to the U.S. by Master Zi Sheng Wang (Chöying Randrol).
- To invite respected lamas to give Dharma teachings to members of the community and to our students. We also assist Tibetan monasteries in order to help preserve Tibet’s rich spiritual and cultural heritage.
Our teachers were trained by Vajrayana Master and Qigong Master Zi Sheng Wang (Chöying Randrol) who was directed by his root teacher of 40 years, the venerable Khenpo Munsel Rinpoche (Tuchen Gyatso/Tsultrim Dorje) of the Nyingma lineage, to bring Tibetan Buddhist teachings and Tibetan Qigong to the West. Master Wang arrived in the U.S. in 1995 and began teaching qigong and training teachers so Westerners might have the opportunity to benefit from these ancient practices. We now also have new teachers who were trained and certified in these lineage teachings by Master Wang’s advanced Tibetan Qigong students.
