Guo Lin, Founder of the New QigongGuo Lin, a renowned qigong master as well as a painter of the Southern School of Traditional Chinese Painting, was born in April 1909 in the County of Zhongshan, Guangdong Province. She was also known as Lin Guanming and Meishu.
Since childhood Guo Lin was well versed in the ancient form of Qigong exercise. In the late 1940 Guo Lin was afflicted with cancer and was treated with six surgeries over a period of time but the cancer never abated. To counter this cancer threat to her live, she turned to the ancient qigong and adapted it to suit her medical conditions. In doing so, she researched extensively into both the traditional Chinese and the Western medicines, sought the advice of qigong masters she had access to, and evolved the ancient qigong exercise into a modified form that she practised for 20 years since. After practising this new modified form of Qigong, her cancer had abated.
