Qigong Classes Coming Up
I recommend everyone learn the Four Golden Wheels exercise, 2 sessions one week apart. This is an evidence-based practice that's lots of fun! With regular practice as little as 15 minutes a day, you will lower your stress, heal aches and pains, tone your vagus nerve, sleep better, and balance your nervous system, improving mental health and resilience. You have 5 options in February for taking this foundational class, taught via Zoom.
All times are EST. Note that several options accommodate European Time Zones.
Participants receive access to practice videos so they can master the skills.

Cultivating the Neutral Heart
Please join Kathy for a 9-week experiential embodiment class. This series is designed with
Enneagram practitioners in mind. However, anyone who wants to live with less resistance will
benefit from learning these skills. Participants will learn specific Qigong movements for each center of awareness (belly, heart, and head) and each of the nine types. Working with the relationship between energy, breath, movement, and emotional resilience, these practices will help you transform trapped, stagnant, and contracted instinctual energies into their more natural state. Through these practices, the teachings about the relationship between the belly and heart centers will move from concept to a more subtle direct experience of the Virtues, the Neutral Heart, and original nature. Two sessions offered: Sunday afternoons starting Feb. 5 and Wednesday evenings starting Feb. 8. Click here to locate your session or for more information.
Just like the Enneagram, Qigong is simultaneously a developmental and a spiritual path. Qigong’s three Dantians, or energy centers in the body, map directly to the Enneagram; they are in the gut, heart, and head. These practices take an experiential approach to transforming contractions and resistance, untangling emotional reactivity, and strengthening the capacity to unhook from fear and uncertainty. We move beyond observation and habit change into a profound dialogue with Life Force itself, with the Domain of Liberation.
Explore RP Qigong in Depth
If you'd like to explore Qigong in-depth and learn how to empower energy in your three centers of awareness, Empower Vital Energy with Robert Peng Qigong is for you. The next 9-week training begins Feb. 6, 2023. These classes are via Zoom and are recorded.
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. Class size is limited.
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 increase Yin - Yang energy flow, Learn how to transform stuck energy, difficult emotions, and resistance, as wells as empower the Central Meridian and feel harnessed to the present moment. We also explore group healing and an ancient longevity practice dating back to 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, or light, body and will transform all your relationships. Robert Peng Qigong is an embodiment practice. Its unique promise is you will learn to fuse with Life Force and Live as Presence.
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.
