Qigong Dharma

QigongDharma is the confluence of the streams of qigong and meditation – embodiment and insight.  It is a pathway to radiant well-being and lends access to direct knowledge of who we are in the greater sense.  Practicing QigongDharma in this way empowers meditators with calm clear energy, strength and vibrant health – bringing peace to the body, heart and spirit.

As these practices of health and longevity have been developed in Taoist and Buddhist environments, the principles of natural balanced being, harmony with nature, compassion, calmness and relaxation are dynamically present.


“Teja is a masterful teacher, who brings wonderful skill, practical wisdom and a caring heart to his Qigong. His work offers a beautiful way to embody mindfulness and lovingkindness.”
Jack Kornfield

“Teja Bell’s warmth and clarity allow for the blend of precision and spaciousness that harmonize with deep meditation practice. His talents in teaching make the practice of Radiant Heart Qigong accessible to all levels of practioners.”
John M. Travis

Radiant Heart Qigong

Radiant Heart Qigong teaches the continuity of meditation in stillness and in motion, using the modalities of:
• standing meditation
• sitting meditation
• supine meditation postures, and
• in-motion practices that “presence awareness” through the elements of physical and energetic alignment for well-being and
centered-grounded presence and balance in harmony.

Radiant Heart Qigong embraces action and stillness, cultivating:
• Mindfulness
• Concentration
• Presence
• Compassion

Theses are the initial and primary distinctions, and represent only part of the energetic and cognitive transmission.

This is the practice of integrating wholeness in embodied meditative action with quality of mindfulness that I call “presence awareness.”

These teachings are fundamentally in harmony with the principles and practices of Dharma.

Qigong, taught in this way, is a dharma teaching in itself. The balance and intersection of stillness and movement find the fullness of expression in qigong meditation. Well-being, balance and bliss are brought into direct present wakefulness – the ground, the path and the goal of Dharma-based qigong.
