Sheng Zhen Healing Qiogong
Healing of the Heart with Juunfeng Li

Qi Gong Retrreat Science still cannot measure the Evolution of consciousness; Junfeng Li is a highly cultivated Martial Art and Qigong master who receives teachings and messages from divine spirits in meditation. It's a rare opportunity to be with him for 7 days at Eastover, Lenox, MA this coming spring, March 31 - 7th

Master Li was head coach of China's National Martial Arts Team, 100+ kids won gold medals with him. He acted in, and directed several martial arts films, and was an overnight sensation for playing the main role in the very popular film "Wu Ling Zhi" - Legends of [Martial Art] Heroes.
Master Li's continued search for internal peace and cultivation of Internal Qi has brought him pristine awareness. He was "chosen" to receive and pass on Heavenly QiGong/TaiChi teachings in the lineage of Lao Tzu, Kuan Yin, Jesus, Muhammad and other divine spirits. These teachings include a philosophy that calls for the unification of all religions, caring for the planet, and saving the environment.
China was not ready to receive what he had to offer then, so the master was called to travel to the Philippines to start his teaching. Still with two young children home, Junfeng Li quit his Head Coach position with the Chinese government, forgoing his entire retirement/pension plan, and traveled to the Philippines, trusting support for his work would be there when he arrived.
With such trust in divine consciousness, Master Li spent 14 years in the Philippines, where he began his lifetime dedication to teach Sheng Zhen Gong-the qigong of unconditional love that brings happiness and the "wisdom of life" to all. At the same time, he recorded these teachings in books and CDs. In 2002, Master Li came to United States and another 14 years of sharing this practice has passed. 
Sheng Zhen empowers and transforms lives - as the editor of Sheng Zhen Wuji Yuangong, Anabel Alejandrino said: "It is through practice that one is led naturally into one's own perfect love in the heart. More than just a healing tool for the body and the emotions, I have found that not only do the movements almost magically become the tools with which we can become the person we all want to be, but also our capacity to enjoy life with its ups and downs is enhanced and magnified. Li Junfeng is a living example of this."

Learn Medical QiGong
Three Accessible Levels - April 21-27

Medical QiGong Training
You can register for any 2-day session or the whole 6 days. Recommended for anyone:
-  Struggling with disease or discomfort and longing to recover greater wellbeing.
-  Wanting an accessible way to prevent disease, maintain wellbeing and acquire longevity. 
-   Looking for a self-care health maximization program.
With 40 years as a Doctor of Chinese Medicine and 9 research trips to China's hospitals, institutions and sacred mountain sites, Roger Jahnke, OMD, director of IIQTC, and author of "The Healer Within", will share that:
- Any Qigong can be tailored to become Medical Qigong.
- You can learn the essence of Medical Qigong in a brief training.
- Once you learn how accessible the practice can be, you can use the principles with any form of Qigong for the rest of your life.

Qigong, Tai Chi, Meditation and even Qi Transmission have been the wellness methods of Chinese medicine - called Yang Sheng - since well before written history. Today we know these mind-body practices are having a significant influence on genomics (telomeres and cell replication), epigenetics (habits and environments) and neuro-science (brain plasticity). It is believed many of the earliest discoveries in Chinese medicine were made by physicians who were Qi Cultivators-Qigong practitioners who had extraordinary capacity to penetrate the mysterious realm of Qi.

The NIH, CDC, Kaiser Permanente, Mayo Clinic, the military, Veterans Administration as well as hospitals, school systems and social service agencies worldwide are realizing the healing power and the economic efficiency of Qigong and Tai Chi.

My Five-Day Visit to an Abbey
Let Me Embrace Stillness and Silence

My Retreat
There was a time when our days were shaped by the sun. We rose with its rising, stopped to eat at its zenith, and were asleep when its light was gone. Our bedrooms weren't illuminated by the glow of digital clocks, and we didn't scroll through Facebook postings before placing our phones on the bedside table, where they rang us awake a few hours later.

I traveled back to such a time for five early-autumn days in rolling Kentucky farmland. The Abbey of Gethsemani, near Louisville, is best known as the home of Thomas Merton, the Cistercian monk famous for his spiritual autobiography The Seven Storey Mountain. In his later years, Merton examined the common threads between Catholicism and Buddhism, and helped bring core monastic values to the general public.
