I'm inspired to learn qi/chi. I have heard many good things about it and I'm eager to get started as I've already set aside some time to practice this daily.
I'm completely new to all this... I probably couldn't tell you what qi/chi even is :) I've just read about it here and there and recently got an email which inspired me to pursue this. It would be preferable if someone had links to online resources that they would recommend I get started with. It would also be awesome if you could share an anecdote of how qi/chi exercises helped in your life and your inward quest.
From the research and information that I have gathered so far, http://www.chienergyheals.com/ looks like a cool online school for chi (then again, marketing/advertising can make anything look cool ;) ).
I also came across people doing some pretty amazing things with their Qi. Take John Chang as an example...
He can heal people and set things on fire. How much training is usually required to get to that kind of level?

If you are serious about developing your physical/psychical potential then the Chi Energy Heals training you've mentioned is about as good as it gets in my view. Certainly the results come decades quicker than many other schools of "development"...and I've been involved previously with some of those other schools.
Just do the exercises consistently and daily exactly as they say and you'll start getting exactly what they promise (and more) in the safest way that I currently know of...and personal safety and inner stability does become a major issue when you start building up and focusing significant quantities of human bio-electricity ( "Chi" ).
Obviously, from what I've said, you can surmise that I'm signed up there myself and, as for what abilities you can develop, I personally don't talk about the "impossible" in order to make it more possible in future...but it's probably fair to say that I've had a number of (positive) experiences that would upset more than a few people's belief systems about the way our physical reality operates.
Then again, I've already implied on Inward Quest numerous times that I control The/My Universe with a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet so I may already be responsible for many upset belief systems :)
Beyond the physical world is the invisible world, the energy that animates it is variously known as chi, prana, human energy field, universal energy, orgone, animal magnetism etc ...
The book "Méthode Expresse de Magnetisme Personnel" (Quick method of personal magnetism)
contains 16 practical exercises that only take about 15 minutes daily and will progressively strengthen and develop your chi in a matter of weeks, here're four examples;
Stand up and place this diagram on a table in front of you
The magnet is symbol of universal magnetism, when you magnetize it you make contact with the enormous movements of universal magnetic energy, you reinforce and participate in it's power, you are the fiber of magnetism.
Magnetize the drawing for one or two minutes by slowly passing your hands from top to bottom fingers pointing towards it, with the desire to saturate it with your magnetism, imagine a fluid flowing from the tips of your fingers to impregnate the drawing. Once at the bottom close your hands, bring them back to the top of the drawing and repeat the exercise again.
Breath (verb) is charged with power, it has always been considered as propagator of life. Stand up with hands on your hips, shape your mouth as shown
and exhale regularly, slowly and profoundly on pronouncing "VH", this produces vibration of the column of air which constantly amplifies itself. When you need to inhale close your mouth and breath in slowly, regularly and profoundly by the nose. Continue doing so for one to three minutes. Keep in mind that the verb is charged with power.
The black disk, the simplest magic mirror, symbol of the invisible and the profound life that animates it.
Sit down with this drawing placed on a table at an angle of 45°. Smile and gaze unblinkingly at this drawing with your eyes slightly more open than usual, keep smiling and remain relaxed and loving for a minute or two, have in mind that your gaze fascinates.
The spine, seat of unconscious life and of the sympathetic nervous system that regulate the human body. Magnetize this drawing from the top of the head to the base of the column for 1 to 3 minutes. Keep in mind that the world is unconsciously influenced by your magnetism, that by your simple presence you do good to people, consequently they're attracted to you.
The human body irradiates, it constantly sends out heat and various energy radiations, it ionizes ambient air. This exteriorization is particularly intense at the ends of the fingers, in the gaze and in breath; it also seems to follow thought.
It's especially exteriorizations from the fingers, gaze, breath and thought that it has been given the names magnetism, prana, chi, ki ... it's a fundamental concept present in all natural manifestations.
The composition of these exteriorizations is made up of a complex associating three important things;
Humans are not the only generators of magnetism, there's also an analogous magnetism in animals, vegetables, sources of electricity, magnets, colors, forms, various objects such as sculptures, tableau, graphics, books, ornaments, jewels, stones, etc... These other magnetisms coexist with human magnetism, together they form universal magnetism.
You're been using this energy since you were born, whether you wish to practice reiki, qi gong, healing or spiritual work, etc ... you're tapping into universal magnetic energy; here's a simple and easy way to become conscious of the presence of this magnetic chi energy, the building blocks of the universe
