My Video poem celebrating the Buddhist Temples in the glorious mountains of Wu Tai Shan in China
For the last few weeks I’ve had the remarkable experience of being with Master Angela Yan. Although she does not call herself a Master, other people do. It’s not only because of her remarkable family heritage or because she trained from highly renown Qigong masters; it’s because of how she lives, what happens and how you feel in her presence.
It is said some masters arouse the fragrance of roses in your mind; with Angela, it’s more like tea and dumplings.
Angela Yan Chinese Qigong Healing Works and Research
In 1989, Angela performed her “steel needle” demonstration at the International Qi Gong Conference. Ten volunteers performed blood and pain-free “needle-trough-leg”, (piercing a needle through their calves) at the same time under her Qi Gong force. This created a major impact at the conference.
She then traveled to Germany, France, Austria, Greece, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Tai Wan and Mexico to teach and heal patients. She performed many group healings with as many as 20 patients in a single session. In one month, as many as 200 patients were either fully recovered or showed great improvement from Angela’s healing sessions.
During her visit to Germany, Angela held a seminar for western doctors where she presented research from universities of Berlin, Zurich and Italy that substantiated results of her direct healing methods. Modern instruments were used to test her Qi Gong healing on a brain cancer patient. The result showed significant changes and brought her great respect from European medical practitioners.
Angela Yan Qigong Case Study
Another recent Qi Gong study was done at California medical center in Orange County, California. The results shown here indicate significant increase in circulation and reduced muscle pain before and after the Qi Gong session.
Besides in person healing work, Angela has also performed numerous long distance healing sessions. Her most recent session was performed from Buffalo, New York to Tokyo in the spring of 2011. This patient was diagnosed with bladder cancer and was informed by doctors he had one month to live. After Angela performed long distance healings, he showed great reaction, left the hospital and still lives normally until today.
Angela has had success healing gum and blood cancer completely in a single session, and has helped heal other seemingly incurable diseases in 4-5 sessions. In many cases, since dramatic results occurred quickly and sometimes immediately, at times they appear even unbelievable.
Angela believes that no external help or approach to healing can be ultimate. Every human being must learn about life, and learn how to exist in a healthy, harmonic and balanced state. Besides her own Qi Gong method teaching, she also provides teaching on many other Eastern traditional and spiritual healing methods which include:
- Buddhist chanting, dharma and sutra, energy hand gestures
- Taoist energy cultivation and breathing techniques
- Yoga, Tai Chi, Tai Chi Fan, sword, calligraphy and Tea ceremony
During recent years, Angela has been traveling to several famous sacred Buddhist mountains in China to cultivate and go into retreat with several holy Buddhist masters, including the well-known great monk, Master Meng Can. She continues to receive teaching and training both physically and spiritually to improve herself.
Angela Yan’s Goal
Angela sees herself as a disciple of Buddha, who is a sacred life scientist to her. She aspires to become a “life engineer” to give and share her best through her “True Qi Gong Kung Fu”.
Angela Yan’s Family background

Angela Yan’s Formal Lineage
Angela’s earliest training started with her father, Prof. Yan Hai. She was trained in both the traditional ways of Qi Gong and martial arts as well as western sports. She received her formal healing training from 2 grand masters in China:
Master Li Yong Chang (???)
Master Li was the founder and president of Chinese Martial Arts Therapeutic Research Center. Members of this center are elite martial artists and national competition champions. The famous actor Jet Li was treated, trained and transformed from a weak young man into a highly acclaimed martial artist through Master Li Yong Chang’s teaching and healing methods. Angela trained with Master Li for several years where she received the knowledge of his unique, comprehensive healing method which includes the essence of acupuncture, Qi Gong, massage, folk remedy and martial arts techniques.
Master Qi was born in southern China at Guang Xi Province. In early 70s’ he was named a “national treasure” Qi Gong master by Qi Gong science researchers. His energy magnetic discharge was measured at 3 times the level of other contemporary Qi Gong masters. He also performed in many Qi Gong conferences and showed instant results in front of as many as ten thousand people. His Qi Gong method Jing Gang Zi Lai Gong was formed 170 years ago by Master Shi Zi Lai from Shao Lin Temple. Master Qin’s grandfather received intensive training from Master Shi Zi Lai and thus became the 2nd generation master of this powerful Qi Gong projecting style healing method. Angela’s master Master Qin Yao Qing was trained with his grandfather and became the 3rd generation master. After Master Qin Yao Qing passed away, Angela officially became the 4th generation master of Jin Gang Zi Lai Gong.
