History of Zhi Neng Qigong
Zhi Neng Qigong Founder
Dr. Pang Ming created and started to publicly teach He Xiang Zhuang (鹤翔庄) in the late ’70s and early ’80s. From 1986 to 1989, Dr. Pang published a series of qigong scientific theories, including:
Hun Yuan Entirety Theory, Yi Yuan Ti Theory (The Noumenon of Consciousness), Hun Yuan Qi Theory, Qi Field Theory, Zhineng Meridian Theory, Reality-Illusion Interference Theory (Zhen Wang Xiang Gong), etc. They were later included in his books and formed the foundation of Zhi Neng Qigong science.
In the early 90s, Dr. Pang officially named his qigong forms and theory as Zhi Neng Qi Gong (智能气功). His first form He Xiang Zhuang evolved into Lift Qi Up And Pour Qi Down (捧气灌顶), and became the Zhineng Qigong’s first-level qigong method. In 1988, he found Zhi Neng Qigong Institute in Shijiazhuang, Hebei province. It was later renamed to Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Healing and Training Center (华夏智能气功培训中心) in 1991.

Zhi Neng Qi Gong Tremendous Healing Effects
From 1992 to 1998, Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Healing and Training Center had over 600 employees and had serviced over 300,000 students and patients.
Since 1992, the average number of students and patients in the center was about 4,000 every month, with peak months of over 7,000. Over the years, the Center has treated patients with 200 different diseases and achieved an overall effectiveness rate of 90%.
At least 95% of people who came to the Center sought healing. Because most of them were diagnosed with critical and chronic illnesses i.e. cancers, tumours, etc, they were doomed in the doctor’s eyes. However, after just a month of qigong exercises and practice, their symptoms started to disappear. Lots of them had fully recovered after 6 months or a year-long program.
Zhineng Qigong created so many healing miracles. Therefore, many people wanted to know how and why. Dr. Pang was interviewed about the Centre’s healing results and etc. in 1994. You can find the full translation of that interview here.
Zhineng Qigong Town
Zhi Neng Qigong Town was Pang Ming’s biggest dream. In 1996, the construction of Qigong Town (气功城) was broken ground in Shunyi, Beijing. Qigong Town was supposed to be the only and the biggest qigong university in the world. Unfortunately was forced to stop and abandoned in the late 90s. to comply with the Chinese government’s banning public qigong teaching and practicing rules.
Zhineng Qigong Scientific Research
During that golden era of Zhineng Qigong, many people conducted tremendous qigong science research in cooperation with medical research institutes, medical organizations, and academic institutions.
By 1998, the Annual Zhineng Qigong Science Academic Conference had been held six times with a total of 4224 research papers received. The field of research included preclinical medicine, clinical medicine, science, education, arts, industry, agriculture, forestation, herding, fishing, physical education, etc.
Zhi Neng Qigong Center Closed
In 2001, Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Healing and Training Center was closed to comply with the new qigong regulations of the Chinese government. That event symbolized that Zhi Neng Qigong’s golden years in China had ended.
Today’s Zhi Neng Qigong
After Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Center Closed
After the 2001 Huaxia Zhineng Qigong center closed, all the qigong teachers and staff who worked for the center were dismissed. Most of them returned to their hometowns and did jobs that had nothing to do with qigong teaching or healing. No one was allowed to teach Qigong openly in mainland China since the Chinese government banned all public Qigong teaching and practice because of the Falun Gong incident in 1999/2000.
Pang also announced his retirement that year and announced that there would be no more Zhi Neng Qigong teaching, teachers, or organization of any kind. That means after 2001, no one would be or could be certificated as an official Zhineng Qigong teacher.
Former Zhineng Qigong Teachers
Today, some former Zhineng Qigong teachers started their own operations to teach qigong underground in China. Some of them may issue their own certificate but not in the Zhi Neng Qigong title.
Some former Zhineng Qigong teachers immigrated to Canada, the U.S. to teach qigong to westerners. Of course, they may issue the certificate of their own organizations.
Zhineng Qigong Practitioners Around The World
During Huaxia healing center time (before 2000), quite a few foreigners came to the center to seek healing. They learned and practiced qigong there but few of them got certified as Zhineng Qigong teachers. Later they brought Zhineng qigong to their countries and some of them tried to teach others.
Pang encouraged people to attend his Zhineng Qigong teacher’s program and to spread Qigong science by teaching others. Unfortunately, his teacher’s program only lasted till 1999.
Today, you may find Zhi Neng Qigong practitioners in many countries worldwide. Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania…
The Beginning of New Zhineng Qigong Era
Master Dai – Zhineng Qigong Certified Teacher
Master Dai was introduced to Zhineng Qigong by his father at age 14. He started to follow his father and uncle to attend several qigong functions presented by Dr. Pang in person.
He completed Dr.Pang’s all eight books of Zhineng Qigong’s theory and methods and decided to become a Qigong teacher at age 16.
Master Dai attended a 2-month Zhineng Qigong instructor class at Zhineng Qigong Healing Centre in 1996 and got certified. Later, he attended the 2-year Zhineng Qigong College correspondence program and completed it in 1998. He started to teach qigong since then.
In 2002, two years after Dr. Pang dismissed Zhineng Qigong to comply with the government’s rule, Master Dai and his family moved to Canada.
Fast forward to 2018, Master Dai met Dr. Pang in person in Beijing. It had been 20 years since their last meeting. This time Dr. Pang encouraged Master Dai to innovate qigong teaching and introduced his new book The True Heart Philosophy.
Onenergy’s Innovative Qigong Program
Master Dai believes that Qigong is not just about relaxation or healing. Relaxation is just the preparation for Qigong practice. And healing is just a by-product of Qigong and meditation. He founded Onenergy Institute, aiming to teach Qigong’s true essence. He pours his insights and profound teaching into the Onenergy Qigong APP.
A new Zhi Neng Qigong era has begun.
