Authentic Freedom through Self Realization
Yuan Tze Ren Xue is a holistic system which draws upon ancient wisdom culture, and contemporary philosophy and science, to bring you cutting-edge techniques for uplifting your mind, body and spirit.
'Ren Xue' is the overriding system and philosophy of the Ren Xue school of wisdom, and translates as 'human life science': the science of what it really means to be a fully evolved human being. Most people are currently operating at a very low capacity of wisdom and awareness. Ren Xue teaches you how to evolve your consciousness to develop authentic self-realization and wisdom. As you move up the 'ladder' of realization, your mind, health and consciousness expand to levels you may never have dreamed possible. The ultimate goal of Ren Xue is to develop greater and greater levels of self-realization, including the state of 'enlightenment' where one recognizes one's True Self or True Nature.
'Yuan Gong' is the name given to the 9 methods and practices used to still the mind, self-heal the body and evolve your consciousness, allowing you to return to your 'natural' state of inner calm, joy, wellbeing and stillness. Until you have truly (re-)experienced the state of authentic unification of Jing (body), Qi and Shen (consciousness), you are living in an 'unnatural' state, often unconsciously breaking the natural laws of nature and life, which leads to life problems, including sickness and unhappiness. Unification of Jing, Qi and Shen reunites you with your True Self where you whole life takes on new meaning and purpose. Symptoms of illness can disappear, the mind regains its natural state of clarity and creativity, and deep peace and authentic inner joy prevail. You transform and your life is never the same again.
Why is it a path to self-realization and wisdom?
The Ren Xue system is founded on solid principles:
The first principle and overriding mission of Ren Xue is 'ZI DU DU REN' which means 'lift yourself up, then lift others up'. In other words, you do the work on yourself, and then you are able and naturally want to help others.
The second principle is 'two aspects of life cultivation': MING AND XING.
Ming refers to practices or methods which aim to strengthen and improve the physical body and Qi, whilst Xing refers to practices which develop and raise the level of consciousness.
Through practicing both Xing and Ming we address the totality of our being: body, mind and spirit.
An ancient saying which was valued by ancient life cultivators says "Cultivating Ming only, without cultivating Xing, is the number one illness of life cultivation".
In our modern world, there is great emphasis in the fitness industry on developing the body, but without focusing on cultivating one's awareness and consciousness this is a lop-sided effort, and people pay too much attention to physical feats and fitness. Without cultivating the consciousness (which goes waaay beyond just cultivating mental power or will power), we cannot properly grow ourselves into better versions of ourselves.
Ren Xue addresses all levels of our being, because one of the main universal principles it follows is the 'LAW OF TOTALITY'.
When you study Ren Xue philosophies and Yuan Gong methods, you are developing yourself comprehensively in a healthy, balanced way.
There are 9 methods (or practices) in the Yuan Gong system which take you through 3 stages of Ming (body) and Xing (mind) development.
The first 4 methods are standing and moving practices, and the next 5 methods are sitting practices.
First Method: Tian Yuan - to gather Qi from the universe to replenish and revitalize your body-mind
Second Method: Di Yuan - to store Qi gathered in the 3 Tan Tiens
Third Method: Ren Yuan - to move Qi in the channels and unblock Qi
Fourth Method: Xia Yuan - to strengthen Qi in the major organs
Fifth Method: Zhong Yuan - to open Ren Mai, Du Mai and the central channel
Sixth Method: Shang Yuan - a continuation of Zhong Yuan to open the central line in the torso, arms and legs
Seventh Method: Tong Yuan - to open the heart and cultivate the 5 essential qualities of the heart
Eighth Method: Ling Yuan - to transform unhealthy habits and patterns of the consciousness
Ninth Method: Ming Yuan - the final method which brings everything together
A little bit about me and my teachers
I have studied at three schools of Qigong since 2000 when I first came across these Eastern philosophies whilst searching for answers to heal chronic fatigue and depression. Using Qigong and other methodologies I reversed symptoms and then trained as a Qigong instructor. In 2009 I began training with Yuan Tze, founder of the Ren Xue system, completing the 8 level Zhineng Qigong training in 2012. In 2018 I completed the 6 year Ren Xue Yuan Gong and Yuan Ming Medicine Qigong Master Training, the only Teacher Training which will ever be taught personally by Yuan Tze. I am deeply grateful to be part of the Ren Xue community and to be sharing these life-changing techniques with you.
Yuan Tze is an authentic Qigong Master who has evolved his life to an extraordinary level to reach a high state of self-realization. Born in China and raised in monasteries, at the age of 40 he emigrated to New Zealand and began teaching Qigong. In 2012 he founded Ren Xue Yuan Gong, a new system for maintaining health and developing human consciousness, drawn from a lifetime of study with Qigong masters, and founded upon centuries of ancient wisdom.
"Ren Xue is a system for the future. It’s roots and foundation incorporate all the wisdom that is available for humans to grow."
"I see a bright path. This depends on every member of humanity to create. Every person is a creator of the future of humanity."
"Every human being can find their way home, because when we return to our true home (our heart), then we become bright. We can brighten up our own life as well as others. This is how a truly harmonious world, a world which is even more wonderful than heaven, can become a reality. "
