Chi Kung is the art of developing vital energy particularly for health, vitality, mind expansion and spiritual cultivation.
There are many wonderful benefits derived from practicing chi kung, and they may be generalized into the following five categories:
(1) Curing illness and promoting health.
(2) Enhancing vitality and developing internal force.
(3) Promoting youthfulness and longevity.
(4) Expanding the mind and the intellect.
(5) Spiritual cultivation.
Many chi kung types focus on only one or two of the above categories, but a few cover all the five. For example, most types of medical chi kung aim mainly at curing illness, virtually all sexual types of chi kung emphasize solely on youthfulness, whereas Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung touches on all the above five categories of benefits.
