I am happy to re-introduce to you one of the most successful Qigong masters in the US – Bruce Kumar Frantzis. He appeared on The Secrets of Qigong Masters show last year, and his interview became the most popular episode of our show. Please enjoy listening to or downloading my second interview with this remarkable man at www.blogtalkradio.com/qigongmasters.
Bruce Frantzis is the first known Westerner to hold authentic lineages in Qigong, Bagua, Tai Chi, Hsing-i and Taoist meditation. He trained for over a decade in China and also has extensive experience in Zen, Tibetan Buddhism, Kundalini Yoga, energy healing therapies, as well as the Fire and Water traditions of Taoism.
Since 1961, Bruce Frantzis has followed the 3,000-year-old Taoist tradition of warrior-healer-priest by studying, practicing, teaching and writing about energy arts including: Qigong, energetic healing therapies, Taoist meditation, and Martial Arts. The heart of his tradition is the cultivation of Qi, the internal energy that connects the mind, body and spirit to the underlying consciousness of the universe (Tao).
Bruce Frantzis developed a practical, comprehensive system of Energy Arts Programs, enabling people of all ages and fitness levels to increase their life-force energy and attain vibrant health. Some of his instructors have founded their own schools. His books, CDs, DVDs, instruction manuals and free articles offered through his monthly newsletter help to teach Westerners China’s Energy Arts and support his commitment to disseminate the practical Taoist tradition. Although a spiritual tradition, most students practice Taoist energy arts secularly for stress reduction, healing illness, and maintaining health and well-being.
