THANK YOU.  No words are able to adequately describe the profound positive impact the Spring Qi Detox class proffered.
I am still processing the pearls of wisdom Master Liu He bestowed…very grateful!

Thank you all for your beautiful, healing, powerful Qi and the efforts you put forth to bring these classes to fruition and aid in all of us emerging in 2021 stronger, wiser and healthier.  I look forward to sharing your wisdom and techniques with my patients. I am thrilled all of you continue to offer your time and services to bring good Qi to all of us and I wish you many, many, many, many more years ahead. K. Carter. LAc, Kentucky.


We are so grateful for Master Liu and Polly and for all their support. Since Rick was diagnosed with AML, our world was turned upside down. If it hadn’t been for the qigong that we learned from Master Liu and the healing sessions that Rick has done with her, he would not be doing as well as he has. It truly has helped us to cope with all the set backs and has given us a totally different perspective on the disease. We do see it as a learning opportunity and not some terrible tragedy. We don’t know what the future will hold for us but we are optimistic about life and we are so thankful for our faith, qigong and Master Liu. L. Boydston, Grandview, WA

“The Ling Gui School has given me a way of seeing myself through Nature and the natural rhythms of Qigong has empowered that way of being in the world; my students see it too and have shared with me this way of being in the world has helped them cope in these extraordinary times. Deep bows of gratitude to Master Liu He and Dr. Liu Dong and their Grandfather for the generous way they have shared this wisdom with the world.”  Nadiya Nottingham New York


“Most highly rated session of our OHSU Integrative Medicine Class.” S.S. OHSU Associate Professor


“I wanted to thank you again for your participation in Diversity Conference at Pacific University, and share that we have received great feedback from students and faculty. K. H., MS, LPC, NCC School of Professional Psychology Pacific University


“It is with great honor that I provide Master Liu He, a long standing faculty member at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, with an endorsement for her book. For many years she has been an integral part of the qigong program at the college. Her work has positively touched the many students, colleagues and community members who have had the opportunity to take classes with her. Having experienced her work first hand I can attest to the fact that her teaching style fully engages the student in practice as well as qigong theory and philosophy. Her book contains a vast amount of qigong theory and philosophy that I found applicable for men as well as women”.  Michael Gaeta, EdD, President, Oregon College of Oriental Medicine.

I really loved the class and truly appreciated the depth of information that Master Liu provided.  Her teaching style is a pretty perfect union, in my opinion of hands-on practice and teaching of theory, cosmology, and history. Angela P, Portland, OR


“I so encourage you to take this class (One Thousand Hands Buddha).  I did and it quickly became one of my favorite practices.  Having learned so much about the heart…that it is the greatest producer of the human body’s electromagnetic field;  that I’ve seen a video where touching a specific digit on the hand of a monkey resulted in an enlarged and more active area in its brain…well, to learn the 1000 Hands Buddha Qigong is to bring balance to one’s life, bringing heart and mind together in The Field.  Makes such good sense and feels so divine. After I “pledge” to my heart before getting out of bed, I often sit and do the 1000 Hands…touching fingers and thumbs in preparation, remembering what each one is “famous” for.  The first position, the Diamond Mudra, is repeated throughout: true intelligence requires emotional stability.” SH, Montana


“I have found Qigong as taught by Maste Liu invaluable. It has given me a method to access and develop a dimension of strength, vitality and groundedness that is hard to put into words.  What a joy!”   nve

” I was at the Nourishing Woman Qigong seminar last weekend and it was incredible. I am really excited to incorporate this qigong in my every day life.” K. Hamilton, Pennyslvania

My Healing Journey after cancer treatment has been greatly enhanced by learning Qigong with Master Liu He. Three months after my last chemotherapy, I took the Jade Woman workshop. It was both exhilarating and calming. I felt new surges of energy and I felt as if I was reclaiming my body after five months of intense medical treatment. I also find Master Liu He to be a wonderful model for what I call “the power of yin.” So rarely do I see that modeled in leadership in the larger world. She makes me very proud to embrace my own yin power as a woman and to bring it into the world.  Master Liu He also has a wonderful sense of humor and a joy for life that she incorporates into her stellar leadership!

I bought Master Liu He’s book and companion DVD, Jade Woman Qigong: The Healing power of Taoist Medicine for Every Woman, which have been a tremendous help with  practicing Jade Woman on my own and understanding the Taoist teachings that have been the foundation of Qigong practice and Chinese Medicine for thousands of years.

In February 2010, I took Master Liu He’s workshop, Nourishing Woman Qigong, which has deepened my appreciation of Qigong as a healing and sustaining life practice. These workshops have inspired me to commit to the Ling Gui Qigong School’s personal Self-Cultivation Program. I want to incorporate Qigong into my daily life and I see this practice as a powerful tool in my health and long life. At 58 years old, I am also experiencing a more profound appreciation for life through practicing mindfulness. It is exciting to feel a whole new chapter in my life begin…and to be healthy once again! – M.R.M (Grateful and Happy Student of Qigong)

Recently, my experiences with Qigong have helped me when I became ill with a terrible head cold. I was waking up in the middle of the night with restlessness, cough, and a fever accompanied by body aches. I thought of Qigong to help me relax. I didn’t feel like actually getting out of bed so I simply visualized myself doing the one thousand hands Buddha form. The next thing I remember was waking up the next morning.

One of the mornings I awoke, the left side of my head, eye, and left cheek hurt so bad I couldn’t get up. I placed my hands on the sides of my head and ran myself through the laying down meditation (not sure what this one is called). I opened the door at GV 20 and allowed the Qi to enter into my brain, eyes, face, nose, and throat. After about ten minutes the pain was gone and I was able to get up.

I have also be able to reduce anxious feelings and thoughts by taking a moment to concentrate on my breathing in Mudra one, the diamond Mudra. Often before I enter my dentist office I will sit in my car for about 5-10 minutes and just concentrate on my breathing. I have found that when I go in for my visit that I am able to maintain that same breath and my blood pressure readings are always lower than usual.

Qigong Saved My Basement……

Some work was being done on my sewer system and so a trench was open outside and right inside the basement. In the storm Sunday it started to fill with water. To keep the water from filling the basement, I was bailing with a bucket, filling up a trash can, and wheeling it out and dumping it into the greenbelt. I was able to keep that up over a period of 6 hours (with breaks in between). My 18 year old housemate meanwhile stopped after about 2 rounds of 20 minutes each because he was so tired. My shoulders and neck hurt and I am stiff and extremely tired, but I am functioning. I will rest more so the MS doesn’t flare, but I am amazed I was able to do that. Qigong has really given me stamina! KW – Master’s Program Student

What qigong has done for me. I’ve gone from being unable to walk around the block eight years ago, to having good health, and freedom from disabling, chronic pain in spite of the fact that I have severely degenerated discs in my lower back and upper neck from a childhood injury. And that’s just the physical healing. I also found not just one, but two qigong teachers who are very different from each other in who they are, how they teach, and what they teach. And they are brother and sister! Master Liu He and Dr. Liu Dong have taught with great grace and patience under sometimes very difficult circumstances. They teach with incredible dignity, humility, and approachability. They are honor their students by always being fully present and giving fully of themselves, even if maybe they are stressed by life outside the classroom. Their dedication to Qigong is a testimony to the power it has in their own lives. They model a high level of intelligence and compassion, and they act as though we students can do what they do, with the same intelligence and compassion! And so, we students experience depths of meditation, depths of compassion, strength of character, and other qigong and life experiences we didn’t think were possible. I am grateful to Master Liu He and Dr. Liu Dong. SS – Master’s Program Student

It has been an honor to study with Master Liu He and her brother, Dr. Liu Dong for three years. People may travel afar in hopes of studying with such renown teachers. They come to us with a rich, long and pure lineage. They come with noble happy hearts, quiet mastery, humility. and as two of China’s National Treasures.

Qigong is like “coming home”. As I balance nature within, I experience the highest form of self love and the spiritual and physical opening that follows. My practice has supported me through a crossroads in life of seemingly unbearable pain. Cultivate what is good within and allow the rest to fall to the side.

Not denial. Not change. Transformation. (a grateful student)

“Finding and practicing Qigong during my life’s journey has been powerful beyond words and continues that way as I deepen my practice. I am truly beginning to understand Master Liu He saying, “At first you practice Qigong, and then Qigong practices you.”  —Carrie Lafferty,Physical Therapist, Feldenkrais and Certified Qigong Instructor

“I have become healthier practicing the Qigong methods taught by Master Liu He.” —Margaret Palmquest,M.D. and Certified Qigong Instructor

My elderly mother has seen Master Liu He two times and had immediate health improvements after both sessions. Her healing sessions are powerful. She will continue to see Master Liu He on a regular basis to help improve her health issues. We are grateful.

“Jade Woman Qigong is powerful medicine. I recently taught it to a patient who had been relying on acupuncture and herbs to manage her menstrual cramps, mood swings, and pre-period headaches. Within two months of learning Jade Woman, she completely eliminated all of her symptoms. It just goes to show the most profound healing we can offer our patients is the power to heal themselves.”  Brodie Welch, L.Ac., M.S.O.M. and Certified Qigong Instructor

“Master Liu He is a rare and beautiful teacher. She shares Qigong with a lightness of being, never making any concepts too esoteric or distant from us students. She brings even the most unfamiliar concepts down to earth and to our understanding, so that we can put them into our practice. Her method, which she shares generously with all of us, has provided me with a practical framework that I use not only through Qigong movements and meditation exercises but also as a guide for my inner life, for my relationships with people, and for the challenges of today’s modern world.”  Marisol Mayell,Certified Qigong Instructor and Alexander Technique Teacher

“Connecting with Master Liu He has been the blessing of a lifetime, awakening a dormant healing capacity within me, and a heightened sense of true self-love. Jade Woman makes it easier to live on this planet and has graced my midlife years immeasurably. My teacher walks in integrity with our true nature: balanced, stable, and soft, gifting the West. In deep soul gratitude for all you so graciously awaken within us.”  Maureen Bright,Montessori Teacher and Certified Qigong Instructor

“Jade Woman Qigong balanced my body so dramatically and effectively during pre-menopause that within a short time, I no longer needed to take the natural hormone supplements.” Phyllis Lefohn,Photographer and Certified Qigong Instructor

I attended the Jade Woman workshop this weekend. I enjoyed the class so much! Already, I can tell that this form is going to help me balance myself and further open to the world around me. Master Liu He’s gentle presence and grounded energy is inspiring. Thank you! Meredith Hamm ,  ( Portland, Oregon).


I want to thank you for your beautiful qigong dvds.  I first discovered you on youtube.  I have Lyme disease.  I started doing some of the forms you show on youtube and then I ordered 2 of your videos.  I have wanted to learn 1000 Buddha hands for a long time.  I love the video and have also started doing more of your qigong forms.  I have been doing qigong for about 30 years but your forms seem to be the best for my  health.  In just a short time I have started feeling better.  Lyme doesn’t seem to be such a terrible problem any more.  Thank you for your dedication to helping others.


 I had an absolutely amazing time at the retreat.  Not only did I meet so many wonderful people, and learn the beautiful forms that were taught, but I was quite taken by the presence of a nonjudgmental, supportive essence that felt like it was a coming home to my true self.  Since the retreat, I feel as if I have been processing things more on a personal/spiritual level.  It’s been a time of realizations and releases from past thoughts and beliefs.


Wow. The retreat this past weekend was amazing!

I really enjoyed the form that we learned this weekend, but especially feel fortunate to have been in Master Liu He’s presence, to hear her wisdom and feel her care for us. I love to be reminded that I am my best healer, and return to that knowing through an embodied practice, with a community of practitioners.

– GL Portland


I have been quite ill for about 10 days and the only thing that has been my constant help and support are the videos of Master Liu He doing Immune Boost, Self Massage and 1000 Buddha that I have access to…this is a note first to thank you so deeply for this powerful work, and to request that you keep teaching and making teachings available online because this medicine from Master Liu is such a gift…I have tears in my eyes with gratitude.

Love and health to the Ling Gui family

Thank you Master Liu for creating the Diamond Qigong DVD. My wife a few weeks ago was shown to have breast cysts and since then I have been wondering about the best treatment for this as Western doctors do not treat it. They just watch it waiting for it to become tumor, as you well know. Your explanation makes sense as my wife has had some major grief from a few very important losses. I have been enjoying doing your Concentrating the Hun and I hope that my wife will be interested in obtaining your Diamond Qigong DVD.
What a great blessing to women you are providing!



Celestial Pillar has been a really powerful form for me.  Power doesn’t seem quite adequate exactly because it is subtle at the same time, but after dealing with cancer, adrenal fatigue, and more transition and indecisiveness than I care to admit, I am finally beginning to feel like I have real connection with myself again.  AND the energy to move forward.  Qigong up until now has definitely helped me heal and connect, but still I felt an inner stuckness that was very frustrating.  
I know the path continues to unfold, but truly in just the 5 or so weeks since Memorial weekend I have been practicing regularly and noticed changes.  I’ve moved forward on numerous things that were just lingering:
-A health and wellness certification, which opens more job opportunities (This was something started in Nov last year!) ,
-Applying to teach qigong at a rehab center in The Dalles,
-Training for a running race with friends that will be social and fun, but that I hadn’t wanted to commit to before, and 
-I am following up on lots of smaller things in a way I found quite difficult before.  
I am also connecting with people with a little more ease, which is something I have found very challenging since I left Alaska, 4 years ago!
Outwardly, these things are small, but for me they represent a path forward and hope, which is a wonderful, incredible feeling.
Thank you very much for your teachings, Master Liu.  They mean so much.     
Sincerely and humbly,
Due to years of chronic neuralgia, I’ve been on heavy pain meds just to leave my house, walking with a cane, and had frequent days where I couldn’t get out of bed. In December, I had one treatment with Master Liu He, and nervously enrolled (I wasn’t sure I could make it through!) in her Winter Yang Sheng class. By late Feb (after only the third class in the series and diligent practice at home), I was no longer using a cane, and had reduced the dosage of pain meds. By mid-March, I no longer had any bed-bound days. I’ve still got a long road ahead of me, but very glad Master Liu and her qigong treasures are part of my healing plan!
J. Wygal. Portland, Oregon
Last night and this morning I did a combination of immune boost qigong and stabilizing and empowering the heart practice.
The first one seems to really open up the lungs, while the second one feels so powerful and peaceful!
It feels like a blessing to be learning these methods.
G. Watson, California

The 1000Buddha eyes is the most incredible qigong. Thank you for letting me join. The level of healing is exceptional. Thank Master Liu for sharing it with us and her energy.  Bernice S, Texas

*Really enjoyed today’s class!
Liu He’s ability to adapt to a new situation is already legendary (e.g., China to France to US!).  But watching her master the art of Qi-Zoom is awesome.  It is like having Liu He right here in my living room once/week ? Feeling blessed ? Phyllis

*A Zoom Qi class is like having a private session with Master Liu He. Not only do we learn or review a form with abundant information, we also experience her powerful presence and energetic healing transmissions. Thank you!  Sita W., Oregon

*That was so fabulous! I feel so comfortable with and inspired by Master Liu He. I had so much fun today! Courtney C., California


*Thank you for a wonderful Zoom workshop. I just clicked the link, and voila!
I received the same energy from Master Liu He through my computer. Isn’t it amazing?  I don’t have to drive 30-45 minutes, and cross the crowded bridge.  It was a time saver for me. Thank you again!  Akiko P., Washington


*This last form, Yin Yang Harvest, is wonderful.  I feel so balanced and stable and calmly energized after practicing.  Thank you so much!  I have used the zoom recordings to practice and especially like the “upgrading” chanting at the very beginning.  I don’t know how it is possible but I still feel your energy even from the zoom recording.  I love it.  I didn’t think that I’d be able to come in person to anymore worskshops but now with these Internet classes, my qigong practice has been revived…and I’ve been rejuvenated!    I am so grateful!  – Lizzie S. Seattle

*Merci pour ces 3 jours de grande intensité vibratoire et passionnants...
Ce fut un séminaire de grande envergure!
Aujourd’hui, je me sens profondément bien ancrée et sereine. J’adore cette pratique et ai la ferme intention de bien la développer afin de pouvoir à mon tour la transmettre et aider, aider et encore aider celles et ceux qui demain vont en avoir grand besoin! – Brigitte F.  ITALIE

Chère Liu He,

Merci encore pour le très beau stage que tu nous as fait vivre, avec toute la richesse de ton enseignement.

Les élèves ont été très, très contents. – Ghislaine G – FRANCE


*I have felt better in the past 3 days than I have felt in months!  My energy level is noticeably higher and my appetite and digestion are stronger! Thank you so much for sharing with us the 5-day meal plan and the kidney activation qigong.  They have made a big difference in my life.  So have you. :). Anne G. Colorado
