QI: The Force Behind Blood Flow and Higher Intelligence

Interview with Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack (Part 1 of 2)

By Damon D’Amato

Jeff Primack

DD: Can you bring a Universal meaning to describe what is Qi? JP: Qi is the electric “life presence” that beats the human heart and charges the air we breathe. Gong, like Gong Fu, is a repeated action to activate higher energy. Qigong generates a powerful magnetic field in the hands and this energy “dilates arteries”, healing what it touches. The effects of qi are profound for increasing circulation and improving endocrine imbalances. Science will discover qi is related to static electricity and can be harnessed with hand postures.

DD: Qi Revolution is coming to Texas at the Austin Convention Center, August 24th-26th. What is your higher vision for sharing this kind of healing with a thousand people? JP: I believe when more human beings develop “qi awareness”, human evolution will go higher. We hold our Texas event once a year and transform a convention center into sacred space. Our intention is to experience the authentic healing and stress-dissolving practices of qigong in a strong group energy field. Sound, light and qi graphics are used to improve learning so everyone can feel what is going on without any previous experience. It’s rare that one-thousand people all simultaneously inhale at the same second while holding the same healing prayer. Many people that attend heal old injuries and nearly everyone is strengthened by the energy. Our vision for this event is to uplift the group energy to the highest level to benefit all who attend.

DD: The breath work at the Qi Revolution is transformative. Since every person is connected to it, do you believe the answers to healing and overcoming negative emotions are found here? JP: Breathing is the most powerful skill humans can learn to attune with the spirit of life. After teaching qigong breathing to groups large and small, I would say there is a connection. People report euphoric vibrational experiences when they do our Breath Empowerment, even if they don’t believe qi exists. Breathwork is the best Gong Fu; repeated deep breaths will break the veil of darkness and bad thoughts, eventually flooding the body with light energy.

DD: You perform a Global Healing Circle that is legendary. How does it connect participants using the 9-Breath Method with an expanded process? JP: The living electricity felt in the hands of the healing circle is unlike anything else we teach. After everyone is proficient in using the 9-Breath Method, our signature breathing technique, we hold hands while doing it many times. The feeling is like an electric current going through everyone’s legs, arms and hands. It feels so very good! Delicious, I might say. We focus our mind to God and ask for healing of people we love and send light to noble groups and nations worldwide.

DD: You have vowed from the beginning to keep the cost of Qi Revolution in reach for all people and have even gone as far as to offer this healing for veterans free of charge. You offer CE hours for massage therapists, nurses and counselors for an incredible value. Share with me the importance of putting people over profit. JP: Qigong is not only for rich or materially successful people. Qi Revolution is made affordable at $199/all three days, to open the qi door for more people. Massage therapists love the training and earn 24 CE hours. United States veterans attend free and each year hundreds have attended, and many have become our best qigong instructors.

Qi Revolution, August 24 through 26, at the Austin Convention Center, 500 E Cesar Chavez St., Austin. For more information, call 800-298-8970 or visit
