Does anyone know whatever became of Chinese qigong master Yan Xin? When I check what appears to be the offical Yan Xin webpage ( http://yanxinqigong.net/ ) and elsewhere, there seems to be no info on Yan Xin after about the early nineties or so. He seemed to be actively promoting his qigong through workshops and that sort of thing in the late eighties and maybe early nineties, but there seems to be next to no info about him after that period?

The Chinese government made him a "national treasure" which means they physically control his movements - this was due to the crackdown on the mass qigong movements Falun Gong and Zhong Gong and so Yan Xin could no longer hold mass public healings....

 

Yan Xin is still doing external qi experiments through Harvard Medical school - I emailed one of the researchers in Boston - the contact -- to ask if Yan Xin transmitted the energy from  China or did he physically go to the U.S. for those experiments?  No response.

 

But I think if Yan Xin was even visiting the U.S. word would get out on the internet due to the various Yan Xin groups, etc.

 

So Chunyi Lin told me that someone in L.A. told Chunyi that Yan Xin was living in New Jersey - I looked up online and could find nothing and I don't think that is true.

 

Ummm....

So he is still doing research, looks like positive results.

Edit- it looks like qigong charged water or plant extracts were used, so that may how it was done without him leaving China.

Thanks for all the replies.

pythagoreanfulllotus: I don't know that being named a national treasure alone would mean the Chinese government controls his movements. It seems to me other 'national treasures' have been free to travel to other countries and that sort of thing. From what I can gather from your reply, it sounds like you also do not know for certain where Yan Xin has been in the last decade or so however.

Ant: I previously posted a link to the International Yan Xin Qigong Association website which has a brief biography of Yan Xin:
http://yanxinqigong....dryan/index.htm

Zanshin: I didn't read through the entire scientific study document which you posted the link to, but it seems that the study mentions Yan Xin qigong external qi emission was used in cooperation with the Yan Xin Foundation, but I didn't see where it was mentioned that it was Yan Xin himself who participated in the study. If Yan Xin is not mentioned specifically, it seems possible that it may have been one or more of Yan Xin's students who participated in the study.

It seems then that Yan Xin's whereabouts in the last decade or so is not known for certain? In any case he does not seem to have been continuing his public appearances, as there seems to be no recent information about him in the last decade or so, at least not that I was able to find in English. It was mentioned that Yan Xin attended a conference in NYC in 1997, but that was the last mention of him that I came across. Thanks again for the replies. Was just curious if Yan Xin was still teaching publicly somewhere, but perhaps he has been laying low for the last number of years for one reason or another.

Thanks Zanshin. I missed that. So it seems he is still involved with scientific research of qigong, but the public teaching of qigong has maybe been stopped or is kept very low key now. Maybe this did have something to do with the Chinese government's crack down on large qigong groups like Falun Gong.

That's some acupunturist who doesn't believe in external qi energy - they are afraid to seek out real qigong masters!

I know, right!  There is so much misinformation on Yan Xin out there - i would love to dive to the bottom of that mystery.  I have a feeling that the Chinese gov't are purposefully hiding information about him.  Perhaps even disseminating disinformation!

Well if he is the author what do you think the chance is he would say his own chi or his own system is ineffective? Seems pretty ludicrous that he is the author of this study and not a PHD medical researcher with the proper credentials.

well medical ph.d. is not considered the same level as another type of research ph.d.

 

So yeah medical "dr" -- doing research with a vested interest in positive results?  hmm.. seems the same to me as a lot of medical or biomedical research.
