If you'd like to learn more about transformation and conscious living, check out my BREATHE class. In this training, you learn a 7-step process for shifting instinctual survival strategies toward flourishing. In Enneagram terms, we explore how to live more sustainably and generatively from Levels 1-4. I am always open to Enneagram students asking questions and working with the energies, coming from their unique lens. In this class, I teach a number of Qigong movements, including the Four Golden Wheels exercise, the Great Harmonizer breath, attention training, and open-heart skills. We also do Awakening Awareness practices - observing ourselves, growing, and healing. This class is 9 sessions and is recorded. If you need to miss a class, you can keep up with the process. Students who take this class are invited to participate in the free Sunday sessions after the 4th class. Class size is limited. Early Bird rate for this class is available until April 25.
If you'd like to continue working with me after learning the Four Golden Wheels, the next class is a 9-week training: Cultivating Vital Energy with Robert Peng Qigong. We delve into Qigong philosophy, learn to awaken Qi power, empower Qi, and then fuse with it through four essential practices. The four essential practices fortify Qi, increase sensitivity to Qi, cultivate an endless capacity for compassion, and connect us with the Universe, the most important skill needed to work with shadow energy. This class is 9 weeks and recorded. Class size is limited. Early Bird rate for this class is available through April 22.
Students who complete the 9-week Vital Energy course can join an advanced class. In this class, we work with moving Qi through focused visualization, sounds, chanting, and movements that isolate organs to transform their stuck energy and harmonize. We also explore group healing and an ancient longevity practice dating back to at least Lao Tzu.

Be in Touch
The Four Golden Wheels exercise targets each of the three centers of awareness: the gut, heart, and head. It's like doing calisthenics for the energy body and will transform your relationship to sensations in your body. If none of the options works for you, please let me know. I'd be happy to work your availability into future class scheduling.
One-on-one coaching is also available if you prefer customized learning opportunities.

Poetry / Prayer List
I send a poem a day during Lent and Advent. Poetry is a beautiful way to explore energy through visualization, connection, and heart-felt reckoning with the human condition. If you'd like to sign up for the Poetry / Prayer list, click here!
