Recommended Qigong Classes
Thank you for connecting with me! I would love to work with you to:
cultivate awareness of Life Force through Qigong
strengthen your energy body's muscles through movement, breathing, and visualization
nurture embodiment through these practices while exploring the Enneagram
I look forward to what emerges.
Qigong Classes Coming Up
I recommend everyone learn the Four Golden Wheels exercise. 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 pain; tone your vagus nerve; sleep better; and balance your nervous system, improving mental health and resilience. In this class, you will learn to work with energy in your three centers of intelligence and awareness, as well as how to revitalize
your depleted reserves of vitality through movement, breathing, and visualization. It's the perfect class to support you through the busy holidays.
You have 4 options in November and December for taking this foundational
Qigong class, taught via Zoom.
Thursday, Nov. 9, 6:00 pm -9:00 pm Eastern
Sunday, Nov. 12, 3:00 pm -6:00 pm Eastern

Explore Robert Peng 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 starts Jan. 17, 2024. 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.
Cultivating the Neutral Heart
Please join me for a 10-week experiential embodiment class beginning November 1. This series is designed with Enneagram practitioners in mind. Participants learn 12 Qigong movements: one for each center (belly, heart, and head) and one for each of the 9 types. Through these specific movements and breathwork, we unwind stuck and contracted energy in 12 organs. These practices transform the flow of energy into its more natural state and help practitioners recognize higher states of consciousness. Emotional reactivity is alleviated and the cardiovascular, digestive, and respiratory systems reset, contributing significantly to homeostatic and neurovegetative regulation. Qigong is an efficient, holistic way to experience the Virtues and Holy Ideas.
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 belly, 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.
If you would simply like to create a regular Qigong practice to start the week off on the right foot, you may want to join me for Lunchbreak Inspired Living Practices, which meet on Sundays and Mondays at 12:00 noon Eastern. These classes combine Qigong movements with Coherent Breathing meditations to renew and recharge your nervous system, helping you to be relaxed, receptive, and resilient.
Students who complete the Four Golden Wheels class can join an advanced class. In this class, we work with moving Qi through focused visualization, sounds, chanting, and movements that increase YinYang 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 explore Qigong philosophy, group healing, and ancient longevity practices. These classes run for 7-week series, so go to Book Online to see what is available.
Be in Touch
If you are a seeker who cares about awakening to the present moment, a Qigong practice is necessary to stabilize your inner world and to manage the energy of Life Force moving through you. It's like doing calisthenics for the energy body, for the light body, and will transform all your relationships. Its unique promise is you will learn to fuse with Life Force and Live as Presence.
If none of the dates/times work for you, please let me know what does work. I would happy to work your availability into future class scheduling.
One-on-one coaching is also available if you prefer customized learning opportunities. For serious seekers, Kathy offers a 16-month coaching engagement with breathwork for walking the path of integration and harmonizing the instincts.
If you are curious about how Qigong supports Enneagram practitioners, check out this interview I did with the Enneagram Global Summit in December 2021: The Marriage of Qigong and the Enneagram for Creating Embodiment and Flowing Life Force.
I am a life-long member of the human development movement. I have worked with hundreds of individuals and organizations to co-create a world in which all beings flourish. I hope to practice with you soon! Come learn to live a life filled with conscious choice, ordinary glories, laughter, ease, growth, healing, empowerment, and transformation.
Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like to schedule a call!
