Qi flow can be compared to water. It follows the path of least resistance. It pools together seeking the lowest level. It needs to be pumped up from the ground. Depending on temperature, it can be a solid, a liquid, or a gas. Stilled, it putrefies. Moving, it purifies.

In our study of Qigong applicable to our daily practice, we need to answer these questions.
What restricts or promotes the ease of our Qi flow over longer ranges of movement?
How is our qi gathered, stored, circulated, purified, and emitted in and out of the body?
How does Yi, Xin, and Zhi affect our energy?
