About Master Zhongxian Wu
Master Zhongxian Wu was born on China’s eastern shore in the fishing village Roushan (“Bamboo Mountain”) in Zhejiang Province, where the sun’s first rays touch the Chinese mainland. He began practicing Qigong and Taiji at a young age. Inspired by the immediate strengthening effects of this 5000+ year old practice, Master Wu committed himself to the life-long pursuit of the ancient arts of internal cultivation. He devoted himself to the study of Qigong, martial arts, Chinese medicine, Yijing science, calligraphy and ancient Chinese music over the next 40+ years, studying with some of the best teachers in these fields. To this day, traditional Chinese arts and disciplines continue to be passed on within the time-honored discipleship system, wherein the acknowledged master of a given discipline instructs a close-knit circle of chosen students. Near the end of the master’s life, the master selects the next “lineage holder” who will be responsible for the preservation of the entire system of knowledge. Master Wu is the recognized lineage holder of four different schools of Qigong and martial arts.
In China, Master Wu served as Director of the Shaanxi Province Association for Somatic Science and the Shaanxi Association for the Research of Daoist Nourishing Life Practices. In this capacity, he conducted many investigations into the clinical efficacy of Qigong and authored numerous works on the philosophical and historical foundations of China’s ancient life sciences. Since he began teaching in 1988, Master Wu has instructed thousands of Qigong students, both eastern and western.
Happily, Master Wu was invited to leave his position as an aerospace engineer in Xi’an, China in 2001 and join the faculty of the Classical Chinese Medicine program at the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, OR. He served as Senior Instructor and Resident Expert of Qigong and Taiji at NCNM for four years. He currently maintains a busy teaching schedule, holding classes, workshops and seminars, and offers a long-term Qigong and Taiji training programs which provide a strong foundation for the study of shamanic Qigong, internal alchemy, Taiji and Qi healing skills — including classical Chinese energy techniques, medical Qigong and martial arts applications. Since coming to the United States, he has continued writing (now in English) a slew of published articles and books.
