THE QIGONG RESEARCH & PRACTICE CENTER
Director: Kenneth S. Cohen

Qigong is a powerful and enjoyable way to enhance health, vitality, awareness, and athletic performance. Qigong includes both personal wellness training and Therapeutic Touch-type therapies to treat clients or patients. The Qigong Research & Practice Center was founded by renowned Qigong Master Ken Cohen (Gao Han) in 1981 in the Indian Peaks Wilderness region of the Colorado Rockies. The Qigong Research & Practice Center offers lectures, workshops, classes, and teacher training both in Colorado and throughout the world. We also offer consultation, referrals, and educational materials.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Qigong Research & Practice Center is to:

(1) Educate the public about the health and life-enhancing benefits of qigong practice.

(2) Teach qigong self-healing techniques, including both Chen and Yang Style Taiji Quan, for personal well-being and to health-care professionals for patient education.

(3) Teach External Qi Healing (Chinese Therapeutic Touch), a method of qi (life energy) assessment and treatment.

(4) Establish ethical and professional standards for qigong practice and training.

(5) Promote qigong as Complementary and Alternative Medicine by introducing it in medical and health education and through specialized schools devoted to qigong.

(6) Encourage dialogue, respect, and cooperation among various healing paradigms and modalities.

(7) Explore and teach varied applications of qigong, including qigong for sports conditioning and performance; qigong for balance and integrity in business management and decision making; qigong to increase artistic and poetic sensitivity; and qigong as a path of spiritual enlightenment.

(8) Supervise university graduate students who conduct research related to qigong.

(9) Provide assistance through academic research, consultation, networking, and referrals.

(10) Conduct business in an ethical and ecologically responsible manner.

An Earth-Friendly Business
Did you know with only 5% of the world’s population, the United States has the highest per capita consumption of energy in the world? The U.S. uses
--30% of the planet’s total natural resources including
--25% of the world’s fossil fuels
--20% of the world’s metals

The Qigong Research & Practice Center believes that personal health cannot be separated from planetary health. We maintain the following earth-friendly practices:
  • We use recycled paper, packaging material, checks (printed with soy ink), and other recycled products.
  • We recycle and reuse our own materials whenever possible.
  • We use only biodegradable cleansers.
  • Our toilet is an ultra low flush model.
  • We support local businesses that support the environment.
  • We recycle electronic hardware and batteries only in a safe, eco-friendly manner, contributing neither to landfills nor the shipment of toxic substances to other countries.
  • We are actively involved in local political and environmental decision making and have, through personal testimony, stopped polluters in their tracks.
  • We donate money regularly to environmental and indigenous rights groups.
