“A journey of a thousand miles
starts under one’s feet.”
—Laozi, Daodejing, chapter 64

Tanxian (探險/探险, tànxiǎn) is the Chinese term for “to explore” or “to go on an expedition”. And this is what this website is about, a journey of discovery into a world often unfamiliar and foreign, but nonetheless fascinating: the world of Qigong, the ancient Chinese method to health.
