Qigong is a beautiful Art of Self Healing, and Health Maintenance - literally cultivating and benefiting all aspects of your Life from the physical, and emotional aspects of your self, all the way to the deeper aspects of both the mind and spirit. Qigong is an amazing holistic wellness practice that has to be experienced to be believed.
Qigong Practice in the beginning will focuses on bringing balance to the mind and body, through a systematic training of the Breath. Qigong Training will involve various slow-flowing movements, gentle stretching, meditative postures, and deep rhythmic breathing - all of which will begin to bring the practitioner into a calm, centered and focused state of mind-body harmony.
The ancient body-mind exercises of Qigong help to provide a powerful and natural form of health care, healing and physical cultivation. Qigong at the higher levels leads one to experience inner peace, mental clarity and physical longevity - truly a wonderful treasure that enhances all aspects of one's life.
Qigong is an ancient method of Healing and Health Development from China which has a history stretching back over 5,000 years into the ancient times of legend and myth, The word Qigong is composed of two characters Qì 氣 - and Gōng 功 - Qi is literally translated as Air or Breath, but also has the meaning of a Vital Energy which is Life Giving. Gong can be translated as cultivation, work, practice, effort, skill, accomplishment, and mastery. Qigong therefore can hold the meaning of a System or Practice of Mastering the Breath and the Vital Life Force Energy. Qigong brings you to a wonderful state of greater health and wellness.

Our Online Programs are created, designed and taught by Jesse Lee Parker. From a young age, Jesse was attracted and fascinated by the Taoist Healing Arts and also Internal Martial Arts Training - his study and experience has continued for well over 30 years and began in 1985, at his father’s studio ‘Third Coast Center for the Healing Arts’ in Austin, Texas. This Wellness Center was a pioneer at that time, gathering many different and unique modalities of healing and mind/body arts under one roof, including Taoist Qigong, Martial Arts, and Tai Chi Training. Jesse was exposed to and studied a wide variety of subjects at that time such as: Massage Therapy, Energy Healing, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Meditation, Breath Work, and the Internal Martial Arts of Hsing Yi Chuan and Pa Kua Zhang -- creating a very wide and strong foundation. Jesse's first Teacher at this time taught the Way of the Healer and Warrior - stressing to combine the Inner Strength and Confidence of the Warrior with the Compassion and Kindness of the Healer. At this time, Jesse's study focused on the Cultivation of the 'Qi' or Life Force Energy as the bridge to Mind Body Harmony.
Jesse went on to continue his learning and received training under masters from California, Hawaii, Japan, Taiwan and completed his study in the Art of Taoist Inner Alchemy during an extended stay of residence in the Sacred Mountains of Mainland China. During this time he learned the method of the Golden Elixir Practice and the Taoist Arts of Longevity. After his study in China, Jesse suffered a very devastating car accident - breaking his leg, crushing his knee joint, and suffering fractures and compression to the disks and vertebrae in his spine - finding himself in a body cast in the hospital, and unable to walk, it seemed that life as he knew it was perhaps over, and there was much doubt if he could regain a normal use of his body.
This was a very testing moment, yet Jesse gathered his spirit, and was able to focus and apply his experience in Taoist Qigong and Neigong to heal and rejuvenate his body - giving him a deep confidence in the healing power of the Taoist Arts to bring one health and rejuvenation when applied correctly. The practice of Taoist Qigong can bring many healing benefits, but it is not magic - continued practice is required, over a long period of time. Like all things in life, effort, perseverance, and patience are needed for real success to come.
Jesse is certified as an instructor in Qigong under the Kong Ran Healing Qigong Institute in Beijing, and has been initiated as a member of the 20th Generation Dragon Gate Taoist Branch of Huashan Mountain.
Jesse studied Shiatsu and Jin Shin Do Acupressure at the Honolulu School of Massage, and is licensed in Neigong TuiNa Massage Therapy and Qigong Energy Healing under the Taoist Traditional Therapy Association of Taiwan. The Practice of Bodywork, Healing Touch, and Energy Healing have played a very important role in the development of Jesse's education and influences his view of Taoist Practice, and the application of gaining self healing through Taoist Qigong and Breathwork Methods.
Jesse has also studied the Taoist Internal Martial Arts of Tai Chi, Hsing Yi and Pa Kua since his teenage years, and has focused on exploring the Neigong Strength Training methods found in these three Internal Martial Arts - Jesse has especially had a passioned focus for the art of North River Hsing Yi Quan and has dived into experiencing the physical and energetic manifestations of the 5 Elemental Powers through the practice of Hsing Yi Movement Training and related Standing Meditation methods.
Through long term practice of Hsing Yi, Pa Kua and Tai Chi, Jesse has uncovered the application of the Neigong Strength Training which is at the Root of these Martial Art Systems. Nei Gong Strength Training is amazing in its effects to enhance all aspects of one's health, vitality, strength and wellness.
The guiding philosophy of Jesse's teaching and methodology is: Balance & Harmony with the Self and Nature – bringing one to the peak experience of Self Healing, Inner Harmony and Rejuvenation.
Jesse welcomes all people, from all walks of life and strives to bring the gifts of health, wellness and inner peace to his students through the experience of Taoist Practices such as Qigong, Neigong and Inner Alchemy Meditation ...

In the practice of Taoist Qigong and Neigong we are taught one aspect of the Energy Body which are termed the 'Energy Gates'. The Energy Gates are the places where meridians connect in the body, and move from one area to another - for example for energy to pass from the arm into the torso, the meridians must pass through the Energy Gate located in the Shoulder Joint. Energy Gates are usually located in the major joint spaces - or more specifically in the 'Empty Space' between the bones of a joint. The Energy Gates often become blocked, due to life stress, ageing, and negative emotions. When the EnergyGates are blocked, this causes stagnant energy, stiffness, pain and limits the movement of Energy through the Meridian System.
In our Immortal Arts Programs, we teach specialised movements and methods which physically open these areas so that the Energy may run smoothly through the entire energetic system.
Opening the Energy Gates is a very special aspect of Taoist Qigong and Neigong Practice.
When our Life Force Energy can run smoothly - with no blockage within the Energy Gates - we gain vital health, healing, have more energy, feel younger & full of a natural joy in life. Please come and take part in our Living Tao Online Program , experience Taoist Qigong and gain a more Vital Energy Flow in your life...!
My father, Kenny Wilson Parker, passed away on April 14th, 2019. He was such a wonderful inspiration and influence in my life, and always encouraged me in my study and pursuit of the Taoist Arts. My father organized my very first workshop in Austin, Texas and gave me such valuable coaching and encouragement when I was first beginning to teach the Taoist Arts and Qigong at that time. I would like to dedicate this website and my Life Work to the loving memory of my father. Thank you Pops for all your Love, Guidance and Support in my life...
