Tian Yuan, the first method of Yuan Gong, is a practice that can yield positive effects on health and the whole of life. Practitioners can experience the following benefits in a relatively short amount of time:

  • Increased ability to maintain a calm state in daily life
  • A brighter outlook on life and an increased sense of wellbeing
  • Increased mobility and relaxation in the shoulders and neck
  • More vitality and energy

The length of the practice can vary according to different needs or intended effects. It can be practiced for 5 minutes for a quick pick-me-up or can be done for 50 minutes for a deeper effect.


About the practice of

Tian Yuan

Trust is the beginning of meeting our heart face-to-face. It is the bridge that allows us to communicate with and know our own heart. Without trust, we are filled with doubt, anxiety, and fear.

Listen to a sample of Trust (first stage):

The natural state of the heart is to be open. It is not meant to be locked away. An open heart is the doorway to life; the entry to an inexhaustible source of vitality. When the heart is open, life is like a vast ocean without any restrictions.

Listen to a sample of Openness (first stage):

Love plays a special role in our life. It is present in every cell of our bodies and it influences every aspect of life. Without love, the opposite qualities manifest, creating dis-ease, fear, indifference, or even hate. Like every heart quality, love’s presence is wholly dependent on the presence of the other four heart qualities.

Listen to a sample of Love (first stage):

Gratitude is the manifestation of goodness, beauty, and wisdom. When we feel gratitude we nourish our heart; it becomes softer, purer, more open and loving. We feel more joy and happiness.

When gratitude is missing, we feel a sense of lack no matter how much we have.

Listen to a sample of Gratitude (first stage):

Gongjing is a composite quality. It includes all the heart qualities as well as understanding, accommodation, empathy, appreciation, and compassion. Loosely translated, Gongjing means true respect. What is true respect? When we have true respect, we see everyone and everything as equally important, equally valuable.
