DD: Why is Qigong Healing so profound compared to other remedial modalities?
JP: “Qigong works directly with your life energy to a greater degree than yoga or traditional exercise. 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.
DD: How did your father’s work impact you by working in the medical field growing up as a child?
JP: “My dad is a senior pharmacist at a hospital. He knows pharmaceuticals have side effects and believes in preventing disease using food as medicine. At first, my dad didn’t believe in Qi. Once he felt the energy for himself he began practicing Qigong and studying Chinese medical models. My choice to enter the wellness field was influenced by my dad and his emphasis to a scientific approach. I have a healthy skepticism in all matters of healthcare and I still believe Western medicine has its place when combined with effective food and breathing practices.”
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 did not provide the training I was looking for. I did a lot of research and found a Qigong master, Paul Dong, who wrote a book entitled, ‘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 and I gathered a hundred people to hear Paul share his forms, which were light years ahead of any Qigong I learned previously. His presence activated my Qi and I practiced more because of coming in direct contact with him.
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 5 years traveling and producing seminars for other Qigong masters, I finally created my Level-1 Qigong Healing Form. It was first published in our books 2003 and only a few dozen instructors memorized it, but by the end of 2007 we had certified a thousand people to teach this routine. Our videos were ‘Qi-Animated’ to show energy graphically and it assisted people in becoming sensitive to energy. In 2013, we upgraded our Qigong videos to HD animation and in 2017 we finally released our remastered Level-2 video with Ultra-HD animation. Spirit continues to reveal a better way to share these healing practices.
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 I’d like people to walk away with is that we can Breathe through life’s challenges and allow God’s Healing Qi to bring strength and guidance. Attendees will personally experience a higher energy from the Qigong. For the last 15 years, people write us thanking us for the powerful breathing exercises at crucial life challenge points. Qigong helps people process stress, but most of all it brings us into a higher state of wellbeing.
