Has anyone tried it? I don’t care about religion/politics, I am more interested if anyone has tried it, how it compares to the other qigong practices. Of course I don’t believe the hype about it, but there is bound to be something good in it. Maybe it is a combination of other qigong forms promoted with hype?
I myself have done it several times being guided by someone who knows it and really enjoyed it. But it never attracted me to just learn something complex without knowing what is going on (and I don’t fall for hypes like “this is the best stuff out there”), so now I am going slowly with the qigong fundamentals.September 22, 2015 at 5:30 pm #44856
There are a lot of qigong movements that are similar to the Falun Gong movements, and in fact, you see a lot of the pieces of the Falun Gong movements in other qigong forms. So I don’t think there is anything particularly unique about Falun Gong’s set, aside from the fact that that is THE set and arrangement that THEY do.
However, if you specifically do their set and their arrangement, you are basically connecting into the energy of that group. The question then is: do you want to do that? For me, the moralistic teachings of the Falun Gong sect, the pseudo-swastika emblem, the cult-like following, and the persecution/torture of practitioners by the Chinese government, all create an energy matrix that I don’t want to associate with my energy body.
If a person simply does a variety of qigong forms separate from Falun Gong’s stuff, the only thing you end up “missing” is connecting with their group energy. And for me, this is a good thing.
Of course, this is just my personal view. If it works for others to do their set, then it is not for me to judge. However, for me, I choose not to. I prefer qigong forms that don’t have any such connection.
