With more than 3 million practitioners in the U.S., qigong is one of the most popular and scientifically researched traditional healing systems for energy and well-being. Primordial Qigong is an outstanding example of "medical qigong," as it is the legacy of Hu Yaozhen, the Taoist healer who coined the term "medical qigong" (yi gong) and was one of the first to offer qigong in hospitals.
Ken Cohen was a senior student of Madame Gao Fu (1916-2005), a Chinese national treasure of qigong and tai chi and a lineage successor to Hu Yaozhen. In this 5-day retreat, you learn all 12 meditative movements of Hunyuan (Primordial) Qigong, a comprehensive system of health and longevity exercises that dissolves impure and stagnant qi (life energy), moves pure qi through the major acupuncture meridians, and recharges the body with fresh vitality.
By harmonizing with the qi of nature and the universe, you reset and tune the body's original healing system and deepen your well of tranquility.
Throughout this workshop, you enjoy intensive, detailed practice with plenty of time for review, as well as complementary qigong meditations for relaxation, clarity, and inner peace. You also engage in discussions about the healing benefits of qigong and how and why it works. Leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of healing energy and a complete workout for vibrant wellbeing.
