QI: The Force Behind Blood Flow and Higher Intelligence
Interview with Qigong Practitioner Jeff Primack (Part 2 of 2)
By Damon D’Amato
Damon Damato: Why is qigong healing so profound compared to other remedial modalities?
Jeff Primack: Qigong works directly with your life energy to a greater degree than yoga or traditional exercise by using slower movements. Postures are ‘rooted’ in one place where grounding and electrical charges build stronger. Graceful hand motions move the qi and blood in profound ways while the person is very relaxed. Qigong’s relaxation response allows for greater microcirculation in the frontal lobes of the brain. Qigong practice can improve intelligence and even deepen one’s connection with God, the source of life.
DD: You coined the phrase, “Press on Qi.” Why is this emphasized so often in your healing forms?
JP: ‘Press on Qi’ is describing subtle movement on the edge of your magnetic field. When a person practices qigong and learns to press on the energy field it immediately strengthens blood circulation, digestion, metabolism and improves important body functions. I trademarked the term as our way of expressing this idea unique to our qigong style.
DD: What was the driving force for you to absorb so much from the most respected masters of qigong?
JP: As a graduate from University of Florida College of business, I founded Supreme Science Qigong Center to be successful and took my job seriously. Many qigong teachers I found didn’t provide the training I sought. I did a lot of research and found a qi master, Paul Dong, who wrote a book titled Empty Force. I flew him from China to Florida in 2001 because he claimed to have practiced qigong every day for over 20 years. We arranged a seminar where Paul shared his forms, which were light years ahead of any qigong learned previously. His presence activated my qi and inspired me to practice more.
After Paul flew back to China, I discovered another qigong expert, Master Weizhao Wu, who was my most influential qigong teacher. Although he passed away, his memory lives in the excellent posture corrections that he carefully gave. He would open my thumb and relax it, so the tendons were not hard anymore. That correction makes a huge improvement to qi flow and has been passed to my forms.
DD: Through this process of education and discipline, how long did it take for you
to create the Supreme Science Qigong healing forms?
JP: After five years of traveling and producing seminars for other qigong masters, I finally created
my Level-1 Qigong Healing Form. It was first published in our books in 2003 and only a few dozen instructors memorized it, but by 2007 we had certified a thousand people to teach the routine. Our qigong videos were ‘Qi-Animated’ to show energy graphically. In 2013, we upgraded our videos to HD animation and in 2017 we released our remastered Level-2 video with Ultra HD 4K animation.
DD: If there was one take away at the end of the Qi Revolution, what would you
wish for each person to embody?
JP: The most important embodiment is that we can breathe through life’s challenges and allow God’s healing qi to bring strength and guidance. Qigong helps us process stress, but most of all it brings us into a higher state of well-being. We make our seminar affordable so that more people can reclaim their qi.
Cost: 3-day seminar for $199. Qi Revolution takes place August 24 to 26 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin. For more information and tickets, call 800-298-8970 or visit QiRevolution.com.
