Temple Style Golden Shield Qi Gong

Our Temple Style practice takes you to the higher levels of training. Temple Style training is for those who choose to take their health and Qi to a level that leaves the status quo behind, and reaches far beyond Normal Human Limits.

The term 'Golden Shield' is more than idea or a catch phrase. It is an actual shield that you build around your entire body.

Throughout China you find people practicing Tai Chi and Qi Gong in the parks. You also find both Tai Chi and Qi Gong being practiced in the Temples. The practices taught in the temples contains information that is too complex to be taught in the parks. It requires a different level of commitment.

Jingui Golden Shield is a Temple Style Qi Gong. The level of commitment required to do Golden Shield is not as stringent as that required in the Temples of China. However, this is not a practice that you will find being taught to the public in the parks. The depth and value of the information taught in Temple Style Golden Shield is at a very high level. The effects of the training can be enormously profound for individuals who are serious, and have the ability to make an ongoing commitment.

Qi Gong Instructor

Hi my name is Tim Chrisco. In 1996 I became a student of Golden Shield Qi Gong and began my personal practice. In 1998 I received my Golden Shield Instructor certification and began teaching this system to others.

I have been very fortunate to have Dr. Dongxun Zhang as my primary instructor since I began practicing in 1996. Dr Zhang is the Master lives here in Austin, and is the lineage holder of this system.

I can easily say that this practice has been, and still is, the most amazing thing that I have ever done in my entire life. It is so rich and so complete. Words can't explain it. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to learn and share this incredible practice.

Read what our students have to say...

The home base of Jingui Golden Shield Qi Gong is Austin Texas.

The master of our system is Dr Zhang D. AOM, L.AC.

Dr Zhang lives and works here in Austin.
