The Master Key
The Six “No-Worries”
One morning a few days after I arrived, I heard a raucous cry by the main gate. Four mountaineers were carrying a fifth man on a makeshift stretcher made out of two rough-cut branches and a blanket. The patient was moaning. My master and I ran toward them. One of the men explained that the man on the stretcher had been bitten on the ankle by a poisonous snake. He showed Xiao Yao his foot. It was discolored and as swollen as a big sweet bun. The skin was stretched and glossy, and it looked like a balloon about to burst. The two puncture marks were clearly visible and rivulets of black blood oozed out from both of them. The rest of his leg was turning dark with an ominous red streak that extended from his ankle all the way up his right thigh. There is a well-known Qigong saying that says that if that red line reaches the heart, the patient will die. It was already more than halfway there.
“Bring him to my room,” Xiao Yao ordered the men.
They did, setting the mountaineer down on my master’s bed. The man was well-built with meaty legs. The pain was intense, and he was going in and out of consciousness.
Xiao Yao brought out a bottle of dark liquor that he kept in his room. He quickly empowered it with his Qi and helped the man gulp down a few swallows. Then my master filled his own mouth with the alcohol and sprayed it over the snake bite.
“Press the top of his head and empower his Central Meridian,” he told me.
I activated the energy point and sent energy from the top of his head straight down. The energy in his Central Meridian was dissipating. It felt scattered and weak. Xiao Yao activated various points on the mountaineer’s leg and spent a long time pressing hard on his Lower Dantian.
The healing energy in the room thickened and the mountaineer coughed.
Xiao Yao used his Sword Finger to direct energy from the man’s Lower Dantian along the long red line back down to the snakebite. Blood trickled out from the two dark holes and then it began to stream. He continued to direct the Qi and reverse the flow of the poison. More blood pumped out. The bed was soon stained dark red. Then the color of the blood lightened, and within fifteen minutes it looked normal. The red line had faded and the swelling was nearly gone.
Xiao Yao washed the wound with fresh water and gave the man another cup of liquor to drink.
“You are fine now. Go home and rest,” he told him.
The mountaineer sat up and moved his leg. He was fully conscious and nearly pain free. He stood up slowly and tested his balance.
Then he slowly knelt down and bowed three times to show Xiao Yao his gratitude. The mountaineer walked out of the room without any help. Less than half an hour had passed since he had been brought in.

Robert 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 performed a 100-day water fast in a small dark room at a secluded monastery in the remote mountains of Hunan province. He underwent a radical spiritual transformation and awakened amazing healing powers. Master Xiao Yao encouraged Robert to develop his healing skills by studying with other Chinese masters.
After pursuing his training quietly while attending university in Changsha, where he majored in English Literature, at 29 years old he began to teach publicly, 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.

Together with Bishop Desmond and Pema Chodron, he was honored as one of "Top Ten Heroes of 2013" for his contribution to transform "the ancient Chinese healing art of Qigong into today’s fast-growing holistic practices — in addition to use as a spiritual practice for inner balance and peace, Qigong movement is gaining acceptance as a gentle movement for chronic illness and pain."
