Enjoy healing exercises (quan) and meditations that open the mind (yi) to the energies of the universe. This comprehensive system teaches you, in exquisite detail, the principles upon which all qigong is based. Learn Standing and Walking Meditation: to improve posture, balance, grace, and vitality. Experimenting with Energy: awaken the body’s energy channels. Resilient Energy Training: to increase strength and prevent injuries. The Health Dance: your own, improvised qigong routine. And Taoist Meditation and Wisdom, including inspiring stories of the old masters.

Workshop - Primordial Qigong: The Taoist Way to Health, Longevity & Peace

June 27-28, 2020 -  Alternatives, London, England

Learn the complete 12 movement system of Hunyuan (Primordial) Qigong, the legacy of Ken’s beloved teacher, Madame Gao Fu, in direct lineage from the founder of “medical qigong”. This comprehensive system of gentle movements cleanses the organs and acupuncture meridians of stagnation and recharges the body with fresh and clear energy (qi). Like tuning a piano, you will tune body, breath, and mind so that they are in harmony, not only with each other, but with the life force of the universe. You will leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of healing energy and, most importantly, a complete workout for vibrant wellbeing.

Workshop - Animal Frolics Qigong: Vitality of the Deer, Power of the Tiger

June 30-July 2, 2020 -  New Forest (near Christchurch), England

Created by the second century doctor of Chinese medicine, Hua Tuo, the Five Animal Frolics are among the oldest health and longevity exercises in the world and the standard against which other qigong methods are measured. Learn the complete Deer and Tiger, for vitality, grace, and strength. You will also  learn core techniques of the Crane for relaxation, the Bear for grounding, and the Monkey for suppleness. By practicing these ancient postures and movements, we awaken an ancient part of ourselves and the Paleolithic wisdom of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. We find the spirit of the animals within, and, like them, learn how to connect to the healing power of nature. Although practice oriented, there will also be time for discussion of the Taoist Diet: how specific foods and herbs build strong, resilient energy and other aspects of the ancient Chinese philosophy of self-care.

  • The complete “Transforming the Muscles and Tendons” Qigong (Yi Jin Jing), a series of easy-to-learn postures that combine dynamic tension, slow movements, breathing, and visualization (“crush the iron ball”).
