Climate Change… Carbon Fuels… External Energy…

But what about Internal Personal Energy ???

It’s easy, simple, better, free… and everybody already has it.


In November and December world leaders from 196 countries are meeting in Paris to sign the agreements about Global Climate Change, conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) of the United Nations. This is a historic event, but it may also be the last chance to get it right. It takes place at an area of Paris called Le Bourget, which is located at 1pm on a clockface,  6 miles from central Paris. Google it. See: http://bourget.cop21.gouv.fr/en and watch the Virtual Tour video to see what it is all about.

Politicians, officials and scientists are negotiating, but they only have half of the picture, and are only addressing half of the problem. They are just dealing with ‘External Energy’ from fossil fuels. They are completely oblivious about our own  ‘Internal Energy’. This is the life within us – some call it ‘Spirit’, the Chinese call it ‘Qi’, Yoga calls it ‘Prana’, and whoever else calls it whatever they do. It is our own Personal Energy, but it does not even exist for the politicians.

Personal Energy is the missing half of the problem. If people know about, and manage, their own personal energy then their use and consumption of External Energy will dramatically reduce. Not including it in the picture is like pouring the highest quality fuel into a bucket with a hole in the bottom.

But while the politicians and bureaucrats talk there is something that everybody can do to help, and to participate in this process.

Everyone in the Energy Arts knows it is possible to use your Personal Energy to create an energy field. Together we can create a Healing Energy Bubble to surround the world leaders in Paris, and there is no way it can be stopped.

If everybody spends some time during the conference – from 5 mins to the whole 12 days – sending healing energy to surround the world’s leaders, to elevate them to their highest awareness and state-of-being, then it will help them to make the best decisions for all of us and the planet.

You can meditate, pray, do qigong, chant, create group rituals, dance, sing…  sit silently alone, with a small group of friends, in large groups, or in a full stadium… whatever is your own way to do it… but please do it – for the sake of us all, and our future generations.

So tell everybody that you know – on social media, texting, emails, phone calls, talks, meetings… and the press, radio and TV in your area… between Monday 30th Nov to Friday 11th Dec we are sending our best energy to the area called Le Bourget in Paris, to create a Healing Energy Bubble for the world.

Pass it on…..



jamesmacritchie1Hello!  Welcome to The Personal Energy Centre
& The Global Qi Project.

Energy is the basis of Life.   The better your energy, the better your life. The more energy, the more life. Energy underlies your health, and state of being. This has been understood for 2,000+ years in China where it is called Qigong or Chi Kung – which is described and presented here. So, to find out how to develop and increase your energy, health & life read on…


THE PERSONAL ENERGY CENTRE is the name of the new practice in Liverpool, England, presenting Qigong, Acupuncture and Tao Studies. Information on programmes and services is available by clicking items in the red panel above on a PC, or on the red three-line ‘menu’ icon at the top on a phone or handheld device.

THE GLOBAL QI PROJECT was initiated in 2008, to make the book and programme on Eight Extraordinary Meridians Qigong available to whoever would find it of interest, and more information is provided beneath.

A NEW BOOK ‘The Adventures of an Acupuncturer – A Clinical Autobiography of Qigong Acupuncture’ is now available free, by simply clicking on the link in the brown box below.

So please continue… and find out how this is relevant to you, your life and the planet.

– A Clinical Autobiography of Qigong Acupuncture

Click on the link below to download this free book.


“This new book is available free by a simple click of the link above. It is a comprehensive overview and summary of 35 years in clinical practice. It gives a broad picture of the Energy System for people who want to find out more, and has autobiographical stories that may entertain. It will be of particular interest to Acupuncturists and Qigong practitioners. I hope you find it of some value. To read the strange story of its launch, read the Blog page on the menu”. Jim


QIGONG is new to the West. After over 2,000 years of closely guarded secrecy in China and the East, it is finally being discovered and known. There are hundreds of styles and forms.

QIGONG is known by other names – it is also called Chi Kung, Ji Kong, Ki Jong and other various spellings, but is pronounced ‘Chee Gung’. ‘Qi’ means Energy, Vitality, Life. ‘Gong’ means Working With, Developing or Cultivating. So, Qigong can be translated as…

…Working with Energy, Developing Vitality, or Cultivating Life.

QIGONG is based on the human energy system, now widely familiar through Acupuncture and Tai Chi. The understanding of this energy system is a major missing piece of Western Civilization. After all, the Global Energy Crisis is as much ‘internal’ as ‘external’ – if we each become more energy efficient human beings we’ll use less external energy, last longer and be better, to everyone’s benefit. The Chinese say Qigong gives ‘Health, Happiness and Long Life’ – who doesn’t want that !!!

Over the last 30 years I have tried to condense the essence of Qigong – the primary anatomy and physiology of the energy system, what it is and how it works – into one sequence that anybody can do. This is called Eight Extraordinary Meridians Qigong / 8 ExMs. A free book and audios are available below. My hope is you find these practices of benefit and value, and discover they increase the Energy, and Life, within you. Try them and see for yourself !



This website contains a FREE ‘ebook’, titled ‘The Eight Extraordinary Meridians Qigong’.

The 8 ExMs are the foundation of all forms of Qigong, Chi Kung, Inner Alchemy, Medical Qigong and Chi Healing. You can simply download the book, at no charge or cost. It is free because the world needs information on Qigong right now.

Please click on THE WHOLE PROGRAM.

Or you can get the separate practices on this page.



For easy access, recorded audio versions of the 12 practices in the book are available FREE by direct download. Visit this page to download them.



A set of Audios, consisting of the 5 Stages of Practice, which culminates in a 5 minute version using the Master and Coupled Points alone, is available at a modest price which helps keep the website open and running. You can BUY IT HERE



This website also provides information about my private practice in ‘Personal Energy Cultivation’ [©2009] through Qigong and Classical Acupuncture. You can find out about Classes & Treatment in Liverpool, England, by emailing via the Contact page above, or phoning UK 44 (0)7913208959.
