World-renowned Qigong Master and healer, Robert Peng will teach you how to use gentle exercises to remove blocks that are holding you back from rediscovering your youthful self!
Robert Peng, a world-renowned Qigong Master and healer, was born and raised in Hunan, China. At age eight, he began an intensive apprenticeship under the close guidance of the legendary monk Xiao Yao, an enlightened master known for his profound healing ability and martial arts skill. At age 15, Robert endured a 100-day water fast in a small dark room at a secluded monastery in the remote mountains of Hunan province, which initiated a radical spiritual transformation and awakened amazing healing powers.
After pursuing his training quietly while attending university in Changsha, he began to teach publicly at 29, and within five years had trained over 150,000 students all over China, Australia, and the U.S.
With his deep understanding and practice of Qigong, and with extensive life and teaching experience in the Western world, Robert has developed a unique way to teach Qigong that people from different cultures can easily understand and follow while enjoying the real essence of this ancient Chinese healing art of wisdom, love, and vitality.

He has been a regular presenter at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Esalen Institute, Integrative Health Symposium, and many other organizations and schools.
In 2013, together with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Pema Chödrön, Robert was honored as one of Spirituality & Health magazine's “Top 10 Spiritual Heroes” for his contribution to transform the ancient Chinese healing art of Qigong into one of today’s fastest-growing holistic practices.

When water flows freely it is pure and clean like a mountain stream. You can drink this water safely. It is rich in minerals and it tastes delicious. But if you blocked the flow and this same water stagnated, it would become murky and attract disease.
Similarly, when Qi energy flows smoothly through the body our internal organs absorb this radiant force and they feel nourished and satisfied. When our internal organs are happy, we feel great.
But when we experience chronic stress the body tightens and blockages form. These obstructions reduce the amount of Qi flow. The fresh mountain stream becomes a series of stagnant ponds of murky Qi. The internal organs are deprived of vitality and they weaken. Symptoms appear and eventually diseases form.
The Qigong exercise taught in this workshop, 8 Cycles uses gentle movement to chip away at the blockages and reinvigorate the flow of Qi energy. As the obstructions disappear symptoms go away and youthful vitality is regained.
