Miracle Healings Abound at The Chi Center in Galisteo
Life had been good to T. Loeswick until his early 50s. When his early success in commercial real estate started feeling hollow, he found more satisfaction as a sought-after business coach. While his hard work was rewarding on many levels, his stress levels rose. Eventually, his body began falling apart.
For seven years Loeswick battled extreme health conditions—first a black mold infection which created “electrical storms” in his brain, Lyme disease, fused spinal vertebrae, Stage 3 lymphoma and chemo, then a gallbladder attack and surgery. His weight plummeted to 135 pounds, and the pain surged through his back and down his legs. He says, “Stanford doctors told me I was on the maximum dose of oxycontin they could give a human being, and they couldn’t do anything more for me. I wanted to die.”
Then, a friend introduced him to meditation, which helped with his thought patterns and some minor pain management. Next, he tried qigong. “I really benefited from movement meditation, but the teacher didn’t offer more comprehensive workshops. So I looked on the Internet, and I found this crazy looking qigong guy that laughed a lot,” he says.
That “crazy looking qigong guy” was Master Mingtong Gu, world-renowned teacher and founder of The Chi Center in Galisteo. The impact he’d have on Loeswick’s life would be dramatic.
Loeswick took a leap of faith and signed up for an intensive healing retreat. “I didn’t have anything to lose. But when I was wheel-chaired to the airport, my family thought I had really lost it,” he shares. “I almost left after the first three days of the workshop. Then something started to happen with the opening of my back with the Spinal Bone Marrow movement. However, the big thing for me was learning sound healing. When I got down to the energetic level in my body, I started to lift the layers and feel myself shake when I was working in the different organs. It was truly transformative.”
Transformations like Loeswick’s are prolific in the over 10,000 students who have taken online courses, in-person intensive retreats, or livestream workshops with Master Gu. At the core of these powerful offerings is the tradition of Wisdom Healing Qigong, developed by Dr. Ming Pang, a Qigong Grandmaster trained in both western medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine who was Mingtong’s teacher. The result is an integrative system of self-healing and cultivation that is highly beneficial for restoring mind-body-heart balance, which is especially needed in the chaotic modern times we all live in.
Master Mingtong Gu shares, “I bring students on a journey where we deepen quickly and cover what is most essential in realizing tangible and sustainable transformation. I offer participants all the ingredients of this energy medicine—which have been proven to be most effective for healing—and guide them in using these ingredients in their daily practice to access and harness the medicine they need.”
The practical benefits of Wisdom Healing Qigong also extend to the spiritual. “Qigong brings a spiritual force into the physical dimension, thereby completing the spiritual purpose of life: transformation, manifestation and fulfillment,” says Master Gu, who shares that his intentions for the healing intensive retreats are clear: “To present and share the profound power and depth of this system, along with its simplicity, accessibility and sustainable benefits, and do so in a concentrated form.”
Loeswick adds, “There’s nothing better than getting a second chance in life.”
