Episode Description

Although the human intellectual mind has great learning ability, creative power, amazing memory, thinking, reasoning, and decision-making, the nature of the intellectual mind is relatively time-limited and space-limited. On the other hand, the human intuitive mind and dream system is time-unlimited and space-unlimited. Two thousand years ago, Laozi discovered a state of mind which can unite the intellectual mind and intuitive mind and bring them together to work on the same page. Laozi call this oneness of intellectual mind and intuitive mind the Xuan state of mind. This Xuan state of mind can be viewed as the gate of great wisdom and skillfulness, as well as efficiency and alignment. Vital life force or authentic Qi cultivation naturally helps us to experience the Xuan state of mind and initiates the process of transforming intellectual knowledge and intelligence into wisdom.

Lauri had a spontaneous healing from 30 years of arthritis after attending Dr. Sun’s Level 1 seminar and practicing the exercises. Lauri quit everything she was doing to study Yi Ren Qigong to understand the body’s abilities. Six months later, Lauri was diagnosed with Lupus. Dr. Sun gave an energy boost and specific qigong protocol to better balance the body’s energy and lupus did not recur.
