In Wu Chan Zhong Qigong we say " You are Your Own Master".
It means that every person's Path is unique. For thousands of years men who decide to walk The Path of Practice were bound to become liberated. But with liberation comes aloneness. Nobody will ever run with lit lamp ahead of you, trying to supposedly illuminate your Path for you.This Path is for you to walk, for you alone.
There are different schools and different traditions. There are gurus, patriarchs and grandmasters. But we in the school of Wu Chan Zhong Qigong in principal don't have any "senior Master" and - God permitting! - never will.
We are all different. But many people secretly dream about dumping the responsibility for their own Path and own evolvement onto someone else's shoulders. They nurture their childish dreams and images of The Hero who will come and with powerful magic will give them miraculous knowledge; who will help them to overcome their obstacles and keep them safe from mistakes...
According to "Your Own Master" principle, the good Teacher can only inspire you. Then, if this Teacher is truly wise and honest, he will leave the student to walk his Path: not the Teacher's Path, but the Path of this student's own Destiny.
That's how it was in all great spiritual systems. Gautama Buddha, St Seraphim of Sarov, Great Jalal ad-Din Rumi and many other amazing individuals - they were not running after any masters or teachers. Just the opposite - they walked away, so Truth could come to their heart, illuminated by their own light.
The Wu Chan Zhong Qigong School is based on method of Wu System. This ancient method of self-develodment is characterized by principles of openness and freedom. At the same time everyone is expected to take their own responsibility for their own development.
Method "Wu" was introduced to The Commonwealth of independent States by a computer programmer from China by the name Mingtang Xu, who himself has been practicing this method. Later with his students and like-minded people he created his own organization Zhong Yuan Qigong and helped many people to learn this effective method of practice. Wu Chan Zhong Qigong is also based completely on "Wu" method. Having inherited this practice, WCZ Qigong school is characterized by complete openness and absence of Patriarch (Master, Guru etc). Also there is no organization as such and no centralized ruling body as such.
WCZ Qigong is just a technology for private use. Everyone can use it freely and be responsible for his own development; there are no lists of practitioners , no diplomas or certificates. I wonder wether Jesus Christ or Gautama Buddha owned any diplomas or belts? Just a rhetorical question... What is the purpose of every person practice? Let every person answer to himself and by himself.
In many different spiritual systems it is believed that you need to enter these schools with special "initiation ceremony". There are many nuances in this area, and these phenomena and events will be explained further in articles and educational video materials. For now let's just say that first of all the main role in this initiation belongs to the student himself and to his sincere intention is enough for making "direct transmission of knowledge from heart to heart" happen. And second of all,like in many open systems this practice can be transmitted simply from one person to another regardless of diplomas. One of features of WCZ Qigong school is possibility of practice transmission by anybody who is already practicing.
Of course, in all schools and systems you can find people with deeper levels of understanding or with special gifts of eloquence. And of course such people can travel the world with lectures or intensive retreats should they feel desire to do that. But it's up to you whether to attend their seminars or not. It's like with any other skill - some people just like seeing true professional at work be it violinist, chef , athlete, dancer or poet. And of course nobody considers this professional to become your Savior.
One cannot enter Heaven on somebody else's shoulders. You are able to change you level of development only by your own hard work on yourself. The Teacher can only inspire; remember? Not even by his own example and not for his own Path, but for "The Path in general", for your individual search...
In conclusion, let me offer you some food for thought. It' the poem by Sufi poet Jalal ad-Din Rumi:
I searched for God among the Christians and on the Cross and therein I found Him not.
I went into the ancient temples of idolatry; no trace of Him was there.
I entered the mountain cave of Hira and then went as far as Qandhar but God I found not.
With set purpose I fared to the summit of Mount Caucasus and found there only 'anqa's habitation.
Then I directed my search to the Kaaba, the resort of old and young; God was not there even.
Turning to philosophy I inquired about him from ibn Sina but found Him not within his range.
I fared then to the scene of the Prophet's experience of a great divine manifestation only
a "two bow-lengths' distance from him" but God was not there even in that exalted court.
Finally, I looked into my own heart and there I saw Him; He was nowhere else.
