Daisy Lee – The Art Of Wuji Hundun Qigong
Description of The Art Of Wuji Hundun Qigong
Experience the ancient practice of Wuji Hundun Qigong to focus and relax your mind, body, and spirit — awakening energy and turning chaos into celebration.
Join Daisy Lee in The Art Of Wuji Hundun Qigong course to learn the philosophy and movements of this ancient practice.
Wuji Hundun Qigong was passed down to Daisy by her late teacher, Master Duan Zhi Liang. His ancestors taught it for generations to protect the health and safety of royal families in China.
Used for both fighting and healing, this empowering Qigong practice was initially taught behind closed doors and is now available for all to repair injuries, restore movement, and regain calm and balance.

… to support the uninterrupted flow of Qi, life-force energy, through the joints and tissues and optimize your healing and renewal.
Daisy’s authentic, nurturing essence is infused in her teachings, and you will be held in a space of caring and support as you learn 18 movements of this powerful practice…
… which you can use throughout your life as you continue to adapt to the flow of chaos and creation, with ease and grace.

What You’ll Discover in The Art Of Wuji Hundun Qigong
In this The Art Of Wuji Hundun Qigong course, Daisy will guide you through the invaluable practices within the essential teachings of Wuji Hundun Qigong to awaken your energy body… walk through the turbulence of chaos and the joys of creation… and experience the alignment of holistic rebalancing within, for ultimate healing and resilience.

Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to adapt to changes in your life with greater ease and grace.
Module 1: Primordial Chaos — Nothing Stays the Same
Daisy Lee’s 107-year old teacher, Master Duan Zhi Liang, was the family lineage holder of Wuji Hundun, an ancient self-healing Qigong system. This system was originally taught only to the elite and those who guarded them… and Master Duan was born into a family of protectors and healers of royal families in China.
Daisy will share some of the key concepts from Master Duan’s Qigong, along with an introduction to the philosophy and movements from the Duan family lineage.
This will be the first time Daisy will share Master Duan’s Wuji Hundun Qigong on The Shift Network. Her intention is to continue the legacy of her late teacher’s wisdom and for the practice to live on in perpetuity.
In this session, you’ll:
- Explore the key concepts of Wuji (creation) and Hundun (primordial chaos)
- Discover the principles of movement in spirals and circles rather than sharp, abrupt angles
- Become aware of who you are and how you’re built in order to understand how to best move through the world
- Receive a deepening exercise to become familiar with the names and create mnemonics to help you learn these new Chinese words
Module 2: The Role of Gravity in Chaos
The role of gravity in chaos is to support balance and trust in the body. When the body is stable and steady, the mind is calm and emotions settle.
You can be the silent eye of the storm when everything around you may be whirling in a frenzy.
We cannot stay in a perpetual state of chaos or we would either implode, explode, or fall apart. That’s why we harvest energy from the earth to support balance, alignment, and dignity. And yet, the body — the joints, the tissues, the spine, the eyes — must remain supple, mobile, aware.
In this session, you’ll:
- Find out how to balance chaos and stillness
- Learn to appreciate the subtle, yet deeply important, role of gravity
- Explore a deepening exercise of Wuji Hundun Qigong — barefoot on the grass, on the land, or in the sea
- Remind yourself of your connection to all that surrounds you in the macrocosm
Module 3: Yin & Yang — The Balance of Dark & Light
We live in a world in which contrasts are necessary — one thing cannot exist without its opposite. A seed of dark remains in light, and a spark of light lives within the dark. To appreciate true balance, we must sometimes experience being off-balance. To understand effortlessness, we must put in effort. The same movements done with a different intention can be a weapon or an agent of healing.
Every day you’re alive, you have choices to make that affect you, your loved ones, your community, and the Earth. What are the seeds you want to nurture and grow?
In this session, you’ll:
- Explore the concept — and real life examples — of yin and yang
- Discover movements to release burdens, cut through ignorance and lethargy, and aid in healing and vitality
- Learn digestive practices to work out the kinks in your body and in your mind — to prevent stagnation that can lead to illness
- Embrace how to send the message to your body and brain that you’re ready to do the work, by taking time to process thoughts and emotions as opposed to being reactive
Module 4: The Taijitu — The Law of Opposing Forces
The Taijitu — the classic Yin Yang symbol — represents the law of opposing forces. You’ll learn the art of balance through opposition. In Western therapeutic understanding, they’re isometric exercises that help open the body’s joints and sinews on a physiological level.
We are the microcosm within the big circle of life, the spot of light in the dark and silent void before life erupts into being.
In this session, you’ll:
- Discover how to create balanced energy within and around you
- Embrace the confidence to manage challenges in your life and transform them into opportunities
- Discern what self-knowing truly means — to absorb the essence that is within the movements of Wuji Hundun
- Recognize that to be a leader, you must first govern yourself well — by letting go of arrogance, control, and pettiness
- Learn your limits by pressing against them
Module 5: Be Like Bamboo — Remaining Flexible in the Face of Chaos
The humble bamboo is known for its multitude of uses within one plant.
Bamboo is strong enough to hold up buildings, yet flexible and malleable enough to bend and shape into furniture, flooring, chopsticks, and clothing.
It grows well in water, yet can survive dry periods by retaining the water inside each joint.
Bamboo is the ultimate teacher, showing us how to be flexible yet strong. Because it’s nature is to serve, it will be treated like a friend wherever it lives.
Bamboo teaches us how to gracefully and eloquently move through chaos while maintaining our connection to the stable earth force, and the light of opportunities that await the discerning warrior. Bamboo expresses the multi-dimensional nature of life.
Like bamboo, you can flex, open, and spiral to avoid unnecessary confrontation. Yet, when it’s unavoidable, you can meet it with strength and resilience. This is learning and adapting to Hundun, or chaos.
In this session, you’ll:
- Unlock how to respond rather than react
- Explore ways to gracefully and eloquently adapt to chaos
- Find out how to become still and observe what is around you, while invoking vertical alignment and deriving inspiration from the multi-dimensional nature of the Cosmos
- Receive Master Duan’s signature movement, Tuo, “snake hands”
- Discover movements to release tension in the torso to manifest greater ease and functionality in the rest of the body
Module 6: Remembering — The Microcosm of Body Within the Macrocosm of Earth
Connecting the realms — as a human evolving on the planet — we seek to understand our nature in the macrocosm. However, in these modern times, we’ve come to rely on speed and convenience, without slowing down often enough to reconnect with the bigger picture.
We walk on the sidewalk instead of finding a new path through the woods. We forget we’re surrounded by powerful oceans and rivers, even as the water within us seeks to be reconstituted and refreshed. We forget to honor the forests, the mountains, and the wisdom of the elders because we are blinded by streetlights, satellites, and the veneer of power.
The cost of forgetting is high as we risk our health and spend our wealth paying for its recovery. Yet all is not lost. Wuji Hundun is a path toward remembering by reconnecting with the greater forces around us for inspiration.
In this session, you’ll:
- Receive a visualization practice to submerge in the Moa movement — divining the limitless mysteries in the ocean and on the Earth
- Merge with the Xun movement by seeing and feeling the diversity of terrain beyond the walls around you — the valleys, mountains, rivers, and oceans nearby
- Pay homage to the Cosmos with He — connecting to the stars, the sun, moon, and the infinite space around and above you
- Embrace all elements as guides along your path
- Discover an expanded awareness of life on Earth as the same innate intelligence lives within the microcosm of your human body, mind, and spirit
Module 7: Integrating & Experimenting With Your Limitless Potential
Now that you’ve learned all 18 “notes” of the Wuji Hundun “scale”, what songs will you create with what you’ve learned — so that your body, mind, and spirit remember the limitless potential within and around you? How does it feel to tune in to what your body needs and find new and different sequences to the movements that will serve you best?
In this final session, you’ll:
- Practice all 18 movements in the sequence you learned, but also “play” Wuji Hundun Qigong by experimenting with variations that inspire you
- Integrate and celebrate with your new Wuji Hundun community
- Enjoy a Q&A session with Daisy Lee
- Share ways you’ll continue to incorporate Wuji Hundun Qigong into your practice — and throughout your life
