The three pillars of Qigong medical, martial, and spiritual create a holistic approach to health that infuses the mind, body, and spirit with vitality, strength, and presence, says Qigong expert Matthew Cohen, the founder of Sacred Energy Arts.

These pillars support your health and personal evolution by activating a trinity of body intelligence, mental agility, and centeredness that can guide you to sustained wellbeing and self-authority.

This insightful online event with Matthew explores how the three pillars of Qigong can awaken your physical, mental, and spiritual power and deepen your access to it.

Through Matthew’s deep and artful synthesis of Qigong, breathwork, poetry, embodiment practices, and meditation  all of which contribute to a grounding and uplifting experience, according to his previous students...

“Matthew’s teaching deepened and strengthened my practice on so many levels.”

Matthew’s teaching deepened and strengthened my practice on so many levels. The rare addition of Qigong has added a profound stillness to my life and is an inspiring, moving meditation. Most teachers I’ve known articulate their knowledge in a steady and cerebral way. Matthew takes it a graceful step further by connecting that knowledge through the emotional, physical, and spiritual, and allowing it to settle without force.
