The graduates of the 2012/13 course decided at a teachers’ meeting in 2014 to found a "European Guo Lin Society" in Bad Münstereifel. All teachers were invited to the inaugural meeting on 05.07.2015, ensuring wide participation.

The association was given an English name "Guo Lin Qigong Association", because many teachers come from neighboring European countries. The founding members believed that Guo Lin Qigong, as a medical variation of qigong, had been underrecognized to date. Many cancer patients as well as patients with chronic illness regretted that they had not become acquainted with Guo Lin Qigong earlier.

As such, the first goal of the "European Guo Lin Society" should be the broader dissemination of this kind of Qigong, which helps promote physical health.
