Qi: The Force Behind Blood Flow and Higher Intelligence
This interview with qigong practitioner Jeff Primack, conducted by nationally recognized mindfulness speaker and author Damon Damato, is part one of a two-part series. Primack is founder of Supreme Science Qigong Center and has shared qigong, breathing and food-based healing techniques with tens of thousands of people worldwide in live seminars.
Can you bring a universal meaning to describe what is qi?
Qi is the electric life presence that beats the human heart and charges the air we breathe. Gong, like gong fu, is a repeated action to activate higher energy. Qigong generates a powerful magnetic field in the hands and this energy dilates arteries, healing what it touches. The effects of qi are profound for increasing circulation and improving endocrine imbalances. Science will discover qi is related to static electricity and can be harnessed with hand postures.
Qi Revolution is coming to New Jersey at the Somerset Ukrainian Cultural Center on January 18 through 20, 2020. What is your higher vision for sharing this kind of healing with hundreds of people?
I believe when more human beings develop “qi awareness”, human evolution will go higher. Our intention is to experience the authentic healing and stress-dissolving practices of qigong in a strong group energy field. Sound, light and qi graphics are used to improve learning so everyone can feel what is going on without any previous experience. It’s rare that more than 300 people all simultaneously inhale at the same second, while holding the same healing prayer. Many people that attend heal old injuries, and nearly everyone is strengthened by the energy. Our vision for this event is to uplift the group energy to the highest level to benefit all that attend.
Is there significance to practicing qigong in large groups?
Between 1980 and 1999 the Chinese people gathered for qigong events inside arenas and stadiums with tens of thousands of people. Dr. Yan Xin led this first wave of qi awareness with integrity, but other fake masters misused qigong to protest the government, and qigong was banned in large group settings. Chinese people had discovered the secret of group energy, and it went beyond the roar of a rock concert or the cheers in a football game. Qigong was a weekly outing in China for two decades and people viewed qigong as an opportunity to be strengthened and healed while enjoying fellowship with friends. Qi sensations and internal benefits reach into the scientific minds of truth-seeking men and women. Where two or more practice qigong sincerely, there exists a larger living field of energy, and I believe it’s stronger when more people practice.
The breath work at the Qi Revolution is transformative. Since every person is connected to it, do you believe the answers to healing and overcoming negative emotions are found here?
Breathing is the most powerful skill humans can learn to attune with the spirit of life. Genesis 2:7 reveals, “God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” After teaching qigong breathing to groups large and small, I would say there is a connection. People report euphoric vibrational experiences when they do our Breath Empowerment, even if they don’t believe qi exists. Breathwork is the best gong fu—repeated deep breathes will break the veil of darkness and bad thoughts, eventually flooding the body with light energy.
Can one become more peaceful and increase awareness from the breath?
A renown surgeon named Perrin Clark, M.D., from Daytona Beach, Florida, recently attended our national event. He told us he was super stressed from telling five patients (on average days) that they had some type of cancer. Dr. Clark’s job was to give bad news to patients, and this caused him to hold his breath a lot! He now reports his stress has gone down dramatically since after attending Qi Revolution and learning qigong. As a result, he attended our trainings and was certified in both our Qigong and Food Healing programs.
There are a number of healing routines within the Qi Revolution experience. Do you need to be fit to participate? Can one receive healing attributes if they are out of shape, ill or have other physical impairments?
People with injuries often experience pain relief doing qigong in the first morning practices. We are okay with people practicing where their body is at and provide modified postures for those that need special assistance. People of all ages can benefit from qigong’s challenge.
I’ve seen a shift over the past few years where your focus has really zeroed in on food healing, especially in regard to food science. Why do you feel this is so important in today’s world, and how does it relate to one’s personal qi?
Food is key to excellent health, especially natural foods made before the inventions of man. Kiwi, for example, helps to reverse asthma in hundreds of students I’ve counseled. Moreover, a study published in the prestigious medical journal Thorax indicated that children that ate kiwi three to five times a week, versus those that didn’t eat any, had a much lower incidence of asthma. My theories have science to back them. Proof is really in whether or not God’s kiwi really helps people breathe. Evidence shows kiwi should be suggested by allergists and breathing therapists to help children with this disease.
Food affects our qi by becoming our blood and the cells that carry oxygen to our brain. I teach that eating red foods (high in carotenoids) are the best way to stop the oxidative processes responsible for heart disease and brain degeneration. We make smoothies and serve sweet red pepper paste to all attendees at Qi Revolution, so they can taste for themselves how delicious natural foods can be prepared.
You perform a global healing circle that is legendary. How does it connect participants using the 9-Breath Method with an expanded process?
The living electricity felt in the hands of the Circle of Healing is unlike anything else we teach. After everyone is proficient in using the 9-Breath Method, our signature breathing technique, we hold hands while doing it many times. The feeling is like an electric current going through everyone’s legs, arms and hands. It feels so very good! Delicious, I might say. We focus our mind to God and ask for healing of people we love and send light to noble groups and nations worldwide.
You have vowed from the beginning to keep the cost of Qi Revolution in reach for all people and have even gone as far as to offer this healing for veterans free of charge. You offer CE hours for message therapists and nurses for an incredible value. Share with me the importance of putting people over profit.
Qigong is not only for rich or materially successful people. Qi Revolution, priced at $199 for three days, is made affordable to open the “qi door” for more people. Massage therapists love our training and earn 24 CE hours when they attend. We allow U.S. veterans to attend free, and each year hundreds of veterans do attend, and many of them have become our best qigong instructors.
Qi Revolution will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on January 18 through 20, 2020, at the Ukrainian Cultural Center, 135 Davidson Ave., Somerset, New Jersey. For more information, call 800-298-8970 or visit QiRevolution.com. See ad, page 37.
