Zhineng Breathing Exercise


A very rational and effective new form for self-healing and fitness as well as advanced practice, compiled and created by Master Zhankui Liu in accordance with the principal rhymed formula of Hunyuan Chi Theories.The rhymed formula reads as - Hunyuan One Five Elements, invisible and formless but yet also visible and substantial; the Center contains Yinyang and vitality, the chi creates all lives through opening, closing, gathering and condensing, dispersing as well as dissolving.

ZBE (Zhineng Breathing Exercise) was derived, modified, developed and perfected by Master Liu from Dr. Pang's Book - The Essences of Zhineng Qigong Science, Chapter Four, Breathing Secrets, Page 322 - Balanced Yin Yang Breathing Method.

  1. ZBE is a method for healing and fitness through natural belly-breathing activities. The emphasis is placed upon balancing the Yin and the Yang, at the same time; it also enhances the vitality of the five solid organs and the six hollow organs as well as the four limbs and all the bones. ZBE follows and tallies with the basic laws of life activities ┬ĘC ascending, descending, opening, closing, condensing, dispersing and converting.

  2. Practicing ZBE can quickly improve and enhance the micro-circulative system of the five solid organs and the six hollow organs, which will further improve and enhance the functions of the respiratory system, digestive system, blood circulative system, and immune system as well as the urinary system.

  3. ZBE practices Hunyuan chi. It can activate both the external Hunyuan chi and the internal Hunyuan chi; it can also unify the practices of both the external Hunyuan and internal Hunyuan, the latter includes the Body and Mind Hunyuan as well as the Internal Organic True Chi Hunyuan.

  4. ZBE starts from the whole and the one. The emphasis is placed upon the sympathetic vibration of all the three vital centers (Dantian).

  5. There are no special visualizing activities in the practice of ZBE. In Zhineng Qigong practice, chi is activated through either physical movements, conscious activities of the mind or pronunciation of special words. ZBE practice activates chi through respiratory activities.

  6. ZBE is an integrated method for fitness exercise. It is simple and easy to learn, beneficial to both the old and the young practitioners with remarkable effects. It is the evangel for the sick to restore health; and it is also a favorable method for the healthy to keep fit.

  7. Through ZBE practice, the True chi or Hunyuan chi in the human body can be activated quickly with striking effects.

  8. ZBE can be practiced as a supplementary form to Zhineng Qigong practice. ZBE practice is a transitional form to transmute the Hunyuan chi from the external Hunyuan to the internal Hunyuan, within the latter, from the Body and Mind Hunyuan to the Organic True Chi Hunyuan, then further to the Central Channel Hunyuan. It is a very effective form to come up to advanced standards.
