GRANDMASTER WEN WEI OU
Wen Wei Ou is a well-known Qigong Grandmaster, author, poet, musician, and calligrapher. But he is probably best know to his students as a beloved teacher and especially skilled chef who cooks wonderful meals. He is the originator of Pangu Shengong and serves as the president of the Pangu Shengong International Research Institute, which has been based out of San Francisco, CA since the year 1997.
He was awarded Qigong Master of the Year in 2001 from the Fourth World Congress on Qigong, and was also awarded Qigong Master of the year in 2006 at the Fifth International Qigong Conference in Bangkok, Thailand, where Pangu Shengong was also named as one of the outstanding Qigong forms.
M. Ou, in 1990, created Pangu Shengong after intensively studying ancient Chinese ways of preserving health in order to enable practitioners to absorb the life force of the universe and to temper and improve their own life force and immune systems based on the physiology of the human body and the miraculous relationship between human beings and nature. Since then, Pangu Shengong has successfully assisted many individuals with ailments such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, apoplexy, lupus, and many others.
M. Ou has also expended much effort in applying Pangu Shengong toward scientific research. In 1997, with the Guangzhou Ministry of Public Security, he took part in a study involving the effect of Qigong therapy in the treatment of addictions in humans; the following year he did the same for addictions in animals with a University in China. This results of this research demonstrated Pangu Shengong’s effectiveness in resolving drug addiction.
M. Ou has written 12 books and many articles, several of which won awards at various International Qigong Conferences, which discuss how to improve the different aspects of a person’s physical and spiritual health. His research paper, “Qigong Is a Special Knowledge that Has Both Material and Spiritual Characteristics,” was awarded the grand prize at the First International League of Somatic Scientists Conference, held in the United States in 1995. For more information on his books and articles, please refer to his website - link below.
As a musician he has composed more than 50 songs and published 6 healing song CDs and 2 healing chant CDs. His songs and chants bring listeners into a peaceful, auspicious, healthy, and pleasant state, adjusting and elevating their physical body and soul.
As a calligrapher, M. Ou has held, beginning in 1994, seven large Qigong calligraphy exhibitions in Guangzhou, south China’s most populous city. Each exhibition was attended by more than 10,000 visitors. In October 2012 he had another large calligraphy exhibition in Macau.

WHAT IS QIGONG?
Author & Calligrapher: Wen Wei Ou
The following is an excerpt from an article written by M.Ou. A weblink to the complete article is below. Article has been translated into English.
Since very early in Chinese history people have been continuously studying the question of what qigong truly is. Records found in many ancient Chinese books, such as Emperor Huang Ti’s Neijing (“Internal Classics”) and the Yijing (“Book of Changes”), have revealed the scope and results of the research of our ancestors, along with many everyday idioms and phrases. In descriptions of the vigor of life, we often encounter common phrases such as “the flourishing qi in the morning,” “the vital qi of the youngster,” “qi appearing like rainbows,” and, in reference to the decline of life, “the seriously depleted qi” and “the faintly remaining qi“. Actually, such phrases express and describe quite well and in a concrete way the original qi (yuanqi) of human life. Many people, however, use these phrases while neglecting their real meaning. Otherwise, qigong would not be such a mystery.
Our ancestors’ study and understanding of qigong were informed by an unreserved materialism, emphasizing practice much more than highlighting conceptual knowledge. For instance, the phenomena of experiencing lights, images, figures, shadows, thoughts– all are ways in which qi shows itself: and the sensations of swelling, numbness, cold, heat, and pain can also be the real results of proper practice. People who believe in materialism understand such phenomena through the tools of materialism. (Of course, this kind of understanding also includes some use of the tools of idealism: for example, the understanding derived from experiencing certain thoughts.) Moreover, our ancestors broke down their knowledge of qi in detail and came up with fitting descriptions. In the large-scale sense, there is the qi of the chaos: “The light qi rose upward to form heaven, and the heavy qi centered and sank downward to form earth.” In the small-scale sense, there is the “original qi” in the human body and the “spirit qi” of all things on earth (i.e., the qi in qigong). The aforementioned shows the broad and narrow meanings of qi; the former the broadest, whereas the qi in qigong is comparatively narrow.
The qi in qigong, which not only merges into the original qi of the universe but also is derived from this same original qi, is of the most spiritual kind; therefore a special method (i.e., a qigong exercise) is required to obtain it.
