Spring Forest Qigong
Five Elements Self-Healing
Frequently Asked Questions

What is this course about?

Spring Forest Qigong Five Elements Self-Healing is a series of simple Healing Movements and powerful Meditations that help you awaken the intelligence of your physical body and the power of your heart to experience greater health and well-being in all aspects of your life.

You’ll activate the power you naturally possess to help yourself heal using a specific set of five movements—and five positive emotions—that support the five major organ systems in the body. Through your daily practice of movement and meditation, you’ll rebalance your “Qi” energy at every level, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

How is Five Elements Self-Healing different from the Spring Forest Qigong personal learning course published by Learning Strategies in 2000?

Chunyi Lin’s continued lifelong study of Qigong has only expanded the depth of his understanding and wisdom of Qigong and its effectiveness for helping the body to heal. Through the years he has continued to develop and refine the processes he teaches to students and healers and uses with his own clients in his healing practice.

In Five Elements Self-Healing, you’ll enjoy a fully immersive experience with Chunyi Lin as you explore the power of Spring Forest Qigong. In a sequence of video sessions, you will not just be practicing the movements; you will be learning as Chunyi Lin shares his wisdom for why Qigong works and how you can gain the most benefit from your daily practice. It’s like being with him as he teaches during his popular retreats.

Are the exercises of Five Elements Self-Healing the same as those in the earlier course?

Two of the five primary Healing Movements are the same: “Moving of Yin & Yang” and “Breathing of the Universe.” Three are new: “Connecting with Heaven & Earth,” “Connecting with Your Body’s Energy,” and “Connecting with Your Heart’s Energy.”

While you can continue using the original movements, Chunyi recommends shifting to the new ones. They are easier to do, and they are more effective in helping the body heal and for moving your energy level to a higher frequency.

Are the Meditations in Five Elements Self-Healing the same as those in the earlier course?

There are three powerful Meditations, instead of two, to enhance your practice and support self-healing.

The Small Universe meditation, Chunyi’s foundational meditation for opening blockages in the main energy channels of the body, is the same. Though in this course you’ll learn more about why it’s so important for your vitality and healing.

The Deep Healing meditation is like the original Self-Concentration meditation, but on steroids. The meditation has been enhanced in unique ways to develop and strengthen your awareness and understanding of your natural ability to help yourself heal.

The new Five Positive Emotions meditation helps you experience the flow of positive emotions—happiness, joy, peace, contentment, and gratitude—at a deeper level. You’ll learn how to quickly switch from one emotion to the next so you can enjoy greater energetic balance and harmony in your daily life.

What is the difference between the Foundations (Main) course and the Deep Healing (Deluxe) course?

The Foundations course contains all that you need to practice Spring Forest Qigong personally. You will also learn the basics to break up blockages in other people and give them energy. The Deep Healing course includes everything in the Main course, plus you will gain in-depth learning and insights to advance your understanding of Qigong, deepen your practice, and heal more completely.

What are the exact contents of the course?

Content for both the Deluxe and Main courses is listed at the right side of this page.

How long is the course?

The video Introduction is approximately 40 minutes. The Main course has 10 video Practice Sessions, each 30-minutes long. The Deluxe course has 8 additional video Practice Sessions, each 30-minutes long

Each video session features the same Healing Movements. Simply practice along with Chunyi Lin as you absorb his teaching.

Chunyi recommends you follow the 100-day sequence of practice on the Daily Practice Charts included in your 102-page manual. There’s one chart for the Foundations series and another for the Deep Healing series. You’ll simply follow along as indicated on the chart for the version you are doing.

You will be doing the various teaching sessions multiple times because learning comes best in layers. You’ll never have to worry about getting it all the first time, because you will eagerly go through the sessions again and again.

When you finish the course, you’ll want to continue practicing the Healing Movements, but without the teachings. You can use the Practice-Only video and audio sessions to continue your practice.

(Audio-only versions of all the 30-minute Practice Sessions can be found in your online Library, if you prefer to not use the video.)

As you practice with Chunyi, you’ll learn how and when to use your Meditations.

How much time is recommended to complete the course?

For best results, we recommend you put time in your schedule right now to do the course every day for 100 days. If you miss a day, simply pick up where you left off the next day.

Treat these as important appointments and do not change them because something else has come up. Building a regular practice of Spring Forest Qigong can transform your life as you awaken and activate the healing power within you.

How much should I practice?

Practice the Healing Movements and Meditations in the spirit of “good, better, and best.” If you practice now and then, that is good. You will benefit. If you practice at least 5 minutes every day, that is better. You will benefit from Spring Forest Qigong more. If you do a complete 30-minute practice every day, that is the best.

What if I am in a wheelchair? What if my legs don't move, or my arms, can I still do Qigong?

You can practice Spring Forest Qigong standing, sitting, or lying down. If you cannot do any movement or any part of a movement, Chunyi says you can do that movement in your mind.

Can I listen while driving or exercising?

You may listen to the audio version of the Introduction session while driving, however, do not listen to the Meditations or Practice Sessions while driving.

This course is designed to be interactive. As you do the recommended processes along with Chunyi Lin on the video, you will put yourself into deeply relaxed, meditative state so you can feel and experience the Qi energy in your body.

How quickly will I see results?

You will begin noticing subtle shifts as soon as you begin the course. As you apply what you learn, and depending on what is going on in your life, you'll see increasingly more noticeable results.

I am under doctor's care. Should I tell my doctor that I am practicing Qigong?

Yes. And consult with your physician or other licensed health care practitioner before changing or discontinuing any current treatment. Qigong should be used as a complementary practice for medical care—not as a replacement.

When you have no health concerns

Professional Entertainers "Tom" and "Beth," who wanted to share their story and remain anonymous, began practicing Spring Forest Qigong even though they had no major health concerns.

“We didn't have lumps, cancer, or heart problems, but we wanted to see how Qigong could work on health annoyances,” said Tom. They were impressed at the results after just a few weeks.

“I injured my little finger years ago, and I often strain it when doing minor things such as washing my hands. Since I've been practicing Qigong, I can wash my hands vigorously. I don't have to baby the finger, and I haven't had any surprise ‘ouches!’”

“My wife has been able to cut her allergy medicine in half. And, it has only been two or three weeks!”

They were hired by a major U.S. corporation to create a “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” spoof for a convention. “It was last minute, so we got the big bucks,” said Tom, who played Regis Philbin. “My wife and I noticed that neither of us had the stress that normally accompanies rushed events. We can only attribute it to our Qigong practice,” he said.

“Stress had always been an issue. Once the stress was so bad that my wife was hospitalized. I don't think that will happen again!”

He called us to share their story because there are a lot of people out there without major health concerns who could benefit from Spring Forest Qigong.

His final answer? “Get the course. You might be surprised!”

Is Qigong like yoga? Tai Chi? What's the difference?

The movements of Spring Forest Qigong are similar to Tai Chi movements. However, the big difference is that Spring Forest Qigong is specifically designed to help open energy blockages and balance Qi in your body for improved health and well-being.

Does this take the place of my yoga or Tai Chi? Can I do both?

You can decide whether to continue practicing your other disciplines. Chunyi says it is best not to practice Spring Forest Qigong during the same time of day as your other practice. If you practice one in the morning, practice the other in the afternoon or evening. If you need to do them during the same time of day, give yourself at least a 20-minute break between practice sessions.

Is the course good for children? Is there a minimum age?

Participants should be at least 12 years old.

What is a Paraliminal learning session?

Paraliminals are easy and relaxing personal development tools that work with your nonconscious mind to help you achieve a specific result. Two Paraliminal sessions are included in your course: Consistent Practice and Faith & Confidence. They are designed to enhance your ability to apply the Qi energy more consistently and effectively in your daily life. They were created by Chunyi Lin and Paraliminal developer Paul R. Scheele, PhD. Simply listen with a clear intention as suggested with each Paraliminal.
