Qigong Empowerments
Robert Peng
As a boy, Robert Peng studied martial and healing arts with Buddhist monk Xiao Yao. As part of his training, Peng spent 100 days meditating and fasting in an underground chamber where Xiao Yao visited daily to teach advanced qigong practices. This week, Peng offers a distillation of the same qigong movements, meditation, and breathwork practices used in Peng’s own training—including the Seasonal Empowerment, Yijin Jing, and Huo Lu Gong (internal organ meditation). You’ll learn to activate and harmonize your energy and experience group healing.
