A qigong master is someone who has thoroughly studied the subject and has mastered the training over a number of years. A qigong master will usually, after painstaking number of years of mentoring and training, become able to train others and become a mentor to a younger generation of qigong pursuers.
Depending on from where one learns the art of qigong, the type of initiation and the training will differ. If one is to study qigong in a European country, his or her orientation will be somewhat different to someone who will be trained in China, itself. Therefore, depending on the purpose for which you want to learn qigong, you will need to evaluate the best location for you to go in search for it.
Before you commit to learning qigong at a masters level, you need to realize the time and amount of effort that needs to go in to the task. It is not walk in the park to be getting every single movement, every single breathing exercise and every single meditation practice right. Becoming a qigong master is not as nearly close to going to medical college or law school. It is nothing like academics.
The pathway to becoming a qigong master may be a bitter road to take but it will also be a road where your endurance and will power will be tested. If becoming a qigong master is what you want to do badly, you need to understand whether you have got the capability, commitment as well as the passion to go all the way.
So before you make the big decision, you will need to think about many aspects related to this career choice. The first is the amount of commitment, time and passion that you have. It’s be good to question yourself about these things before you go further along the way. The second is to talk to people who have already chosen your path.
Depending on your personality and exposure, they will have valuable insights to share with you and if they are open enough, they will also give you a few directions. The next thing to consider when wanting to become a qigong master is where to pursue the course. You may not need to go to China, if you want to become a qigong master for nothing else but the self satisfaction. And finally, you will also want to evaluate the future beyond achieving your status as a qigong master. What will you do next after you are qualified?
