MogaDao Qigong

MogaDao Qigong is a tradition founded by Master Zhenzan Dao, based upon the ancient teachings and practices of Daoism and multiple ancestral lineages of qigong.

The foundational practice of MogaDao Qigong is the Morning Medical Qigong practice, a seamless flow of eleven different forms that together nourish all of the Yin organs of the body and encompass and represent mytho-poetically the totality of what it is to be human.

Master Zhenzan Dao has also created the Yin Tonifying Form and the Yang Tonifying Form, and the four Seasonal Transition Forms. All together the seven forms of MogaDao Qigong represent an extraordinarily comprehensive and original body of qigong.

With regard to healing, these forms relate to every organ in the human body as understood by the Zangfu system of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With regard to the soul and to spiritual life, these forms relate directly to Yin and Yang essences and to all the natural seasons and the permutations of cosmic energy, which inhere also in the psyche and subtle body of human being.


Of the tradition of MogaDao Qigong, Master Zhenzan Dao has written: “My body and spirit have interpreted, created, and invented every single qigong form that I practice and teach according to my illness as a young man, which initiated my researches, my studies in Chinese medicine, my prayer to bind mythopoetic life force with my own contemporary person, my philosophical studies of Eastern religion, and my studies of Western notions of soul, archetype, and myth. These interpretations are inseparable from the physical forms that I teach. My inner content has become outer form—an outer form that I could not find preexisting but which I needed to manifest in order to heal. These beautiful forms, combined essentially with the internal life that made them, have culminated in the practices of MogaDao Qigong.”

“Practice means to perform over and over again in the face of all obstacles, some act of vision, of faith, of desire. Practice is a means of inviting the perfection desired.”
