With Founder of Sacred Energy Arts
Sifu Matthew Cohen

New 12-Module Live Video Course Starts
Tuesday, June 11, 2024
 
 
 
 

Harness your body’s potential and inner strength through Qigong and the five elements to achieve balance in mind, body, and spirit for a life of vitality, clarity, and empowered living.

Move beyond foundational Qigong and Sacred Energy Arts skills and concepts with Sifu Matthew Cohen to unlock new levels of vitality and radiance to enrich every aspect of your life.

 

You’re invited to join SIfu Matthew Cohen for an enriching 12-module journey to deeply explore the profound power of the five elements  earth, fire, water, wood, and metal and apply them to your Qigong practice to foster greater harmony and balance in your life.

You’ll gain a rare and comprehensive understanding of how to work with the five elements using the “five element Neijia” method, which helps you integrate mind, body, and spirit in each posture. Matthew shares that this is a rare teaching, and that he is the only one teaching it in the U.S. or Canada.

Each week, you’ll work with the elements, but rather than isolating them individually, you’ll learn to work with them in relation to each other, creating a holistic elemental practice you can adjust based on how you feel each day and the season of life you’re in.

You’ll learn Qigong practices that enhance the wood element within, such as Reaching Up to the Moon and Stars and Child Prays to Buddha, which not only build physical strength and flexibility but can reduce fear and enhance your emotional healing and compassion...

... helping you embrace life’s challenges as you transform stress and anger into opportunities for growth and emotional balance.

You’ll engage in fire-based heart-opening exercises like Turn Around and Look for the Moon and Dragon Stretches Paws, which foster emotional fluency and promote kindness, guiding you towards enlightenment and a deeper understanding of your inner self.

You’ll immerse yourself in stabilizing earth energy with movements such as Moving Heaven and Earth, Sisyphus Carries Mountain, and Crouching Tiger Coiled Dragon, designed to improve digestive health and strengthen your root, your undisturbed connection to the earth…

... providing you with a solid foundation for your personal growth and emotional balance.

You’ll discover how to embody the fluidity, adaptability, and resilience of water through Qigong techniques like the Large Orbit and Child Prays to Buddha. This practice connects all of your body’s meridians, enhancing energy flow and dissolving emotional and physical blockages. By embracing the qualities of water, you’ll learn to release fear, cultivate compassion, and develop the courage to navigate life’s challenges with grace and flexibility.

You’ll explore the earth and metal elements through specific movements like Moving Heaven and Earth and Great Hawk Spreads Wings, which not only energize your practice but also help you manage emotions such as worry and grief.

Building upon what you’ve learned in your previous work with Matthew, you’ll discover how to refine each movement and each element and adapt them to exactly what you need for balance in the moment.

You’ll also have more individualized time with Matthew. Throughout the course, he’ll spotlight two to three students each week and provide them with personalized coaching and guidance in a spotlight session. Whether you’re picked for the spotlight session or not, you’ll learn a lot from watching Matthew work with other students.

By the end of this course, you’ll have a comprehensive understanding of the five elements and know how to choose exercises that best suit your needs. You’ll also learn how to integrate Qigong principles into your daily life, which can help you experience deeper peace, resilience, and vitality both on and off the mat.

 
 
 

During this health-enhancing course, you’ll:

  • Deepen your understanding of Wuji (the most important and essential standing practice), accessing boundless potential and presence beyond physical limitations
  • Gain insight into the unique approach of the “five element Neijia” method, integrating mind, body, and spirit for holistic wellbeing and vitality
  • Learn specialized techniques for stirring rivers and oceans within your body, harnessing the power of the wood element to move energy effectively

  • Cultivate resilience and adaptability, turning life’s challenges into opportunities for growth and renewal  and then share your knowledge to inspire others on their journey
  • And much more...
 
 

This advanced course is designed to help you deepen your practice of Qigong, refine your understanding of the five elements, and empower you to integrate these teachings into your daily life for enhanced whole-body wellbeing.

By the end of the course, you’ll apply the wisdom you’ve acquired throughout your journey into something practical that you can apply every day, creating daily habits out of the principles you’ve learned...

... ensuring that you continue to thrive, and preparing you mentally, physically, and spiritually for whatever the day may bring.

Donald, Syracuse, New York

“I know that my students will also benefit from my deeper insights, newfound knowledge, and different perspectives that I have gained from doing this course.”

I loved diving deep into the three different pillars, and rather than looking at them as a whole, actually tuned in to each archetype. Connecting with the healer and warrior was a joy. What I discovered with the visionary is that I’m not as connected, although I’m good at ideas. This was a surprise to me but with the course materials I am continuing to work on all pillars and use the practices in my everyday personal practice. On a professional note, as a Tai Chi teacher this helps me keep learning and I know that my students will also benefit from my deeper insights, newfound knowledge, and different perspectives that I have gained from doing this course.
Angela, Liverpool, United Kingdom
