Robert Peng

New 7-Week Live Video Course Starts
Tuesday, May 14, 2024
 
 
 
 
 

Delve deeply into the full-length 4 Cycles of Shaolin Qigong practice, further refining the form each week to increase your willpower & resilience, improve your immune system, enhance mind-body-spirit wellbeing, and add a profound sense of tranquility and joy in your life.

 

What if you could connect to the depths of your inner power, mental clarity, wellbeing, and resilience — becoming part of a living tradition and bringing a revered ancient wisdom system into your daily life?

4 Cycles Qigong is central to Shaolin martial arts training and is composed of a series of Qigong movements combined with simple breathing practices — equipping people around the world to connect to their deepest mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing and resilience, says Qigong Master and healer Robert Peng.

Each cycle is designed to enrich your physical health and strengthen what’s called your Guardian Qi, enhancing your immune system, sharpening your mind, and building your resilience by protecting your energy like biological armor, which would normally decline with age.

Long ago, the great spiritual master, Bodhidharma (who first introduced Zen Buddhism in China), taught the 4 Cycles to the Shaolin monks who’d fallen ill and become physically weak from their sedentary lifestyles full of study and meditation.

After practicing the 4 Cycles regularly, the monks’ bodies became stronger and their minds grew brighter and sharper — as a result, their meditation became richer and more joyful. 4 Cycles Qigong has been passed down through the generations and inspires people around the world with its rich history, philosophy, and tradition.

You’re invited to join Robert’s new 7-week live video course where you’ll learn and refine the full-length 4 Cycles Qigong. After you’ve mastered its foundations, Robert will guide you to personalize your practice, cultivating a plan to make it part of your daily routine for years to come.

Throughout the course, you’ll also explore complementary techniques including meditation, breathing exercises, and self-care massage to amplify your practice and provide tools for self-healing.

Originally developed for warriors, 4 Cycles Qigong features both soft and hard Shaolin martial arts techniques that embody the harmony of opposing forces in nature and within us.

As you study with Robert and refine this classic Qigong practice, you’ll cultivate greater willpower and follow-through, resilience, and lightness of the body so you can let go of life’s burdens.

There’s no better guide for this journey than Robert, whose training in martial arts and the healing arts began when he was a child in the Hunan province of China. He secretly apprenticed under the legendary Buddhist monk, Xiao Yao.

At the age of 15, Robert undertook a 100-day fast in a dark stone chamber under Xiao Yao’s close guidance, resulting in a radical spiritual transformation. The spiritual breakthroughs and healing powers he attained now enable him to help others tap into the incredible spiritual and healing potential that we all possess.

Join Robert to learn 4 Cycles Qigong, a moving meditation with mudras that align the body, breath, and mind in a synchronized flow — enhancing circulation and flexibility while promoting the smooth flow of Qi through the meridians — leading to a deep state of focused tranquility.

 
 
 

In this 7-week live video course, you’ll:

  • Learn the entire 4 Cycles Qigong practice, adding a new cycle each week and enriching your practice with complementary movements, tools, and integration sessions
  • Access the Guardian Qi to protect your energy, strengthening your physical body like biological armor so you’re not injured as easily
  • Cultivate a sense of self-empowerment by activating the 4 Golden Wheels — the 3 dantians and the central meridian
  • Practice twisting and bending movements to stimulate the spine and internal organs
  • Explore how the concept of energetic heat indicates an imbalance of emotions, resulting in anxiety and anger — and learn a Qigong movement to help you get rid of this emotional imbalance
  • Focus on developing precision, power, and intention in your movements
  • Combine the bow/lunge stance and breathing to build up a Qi field that can calm your mind
  • Begin to breathe more deeply, allowing for increased confidence and peaceful feelings
  • Create a plan for mastery and daily practice that fits your specific lifestyle and time constraints

Weekly Sessions Tuesdays at 1:00pm Pacific
 

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Robert. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to delve deeply into the full-length 4 Cycles Qigong practice, refining the form each week.

Module 1: Cycle 1 — “Supporting the Sky, Raising the Earth” to Improve Posture, Ease Back Pain & Establish a Strong Foundation for Your Qigong Practice (May 14)

 

As you begin your journey, Robert will introduce 4 Cycles Qigong and focus on the first cycle, which is about extending your energy upwards and downwards, as if connecting Heaven and Earth.

This opening movement helps improve posture, alleviate back pain, and establish a strong foundational stance.

Robert will explain how to cultivate a sense of self-empowerment through the activation of what he calls the 4 Golden Wheels — the three dantians and the central meridian.

Learn how to identify these four energy centers in your body, and discuss how you can expand the central meridian to connect with the infinite energy of the Universe.

In this first module, you’ll explore:

  • The basic principles of Qigong, including the dantians, central meridian, and more
  • Robert’s demonstration of collecting the Qi
  • Practicing the Swordfinger mudra to combine the Earth’s Qi with Heaven’s Qi, then blending it with human Qi and the 3 dantians
  • How to absorb and project Qi
  • The first of the 4 Cycles, “Supporting the Sky, Raising the Earth”
  • How to nourish the Qi, a passive way of practicing
 

Module 2: Cycle 2 — “Five Damages, Seven Harms, Looking Back” for Cultivating Flexibility & Coordination as You Balance Your Nervous System (May 21)

 

Robert will guide you through the second of the 4 Cycles, “Five Damages, Seven Harms, Looking Back” to enhance flexibility and coordination, and bring balance to the nervous system — aiding in the release of built-up tension.

Learn how, by extension of your central meridian and spinal energy, you can refresh your energy and create a strong protective Qi field.

Robert will also introduce twisting and bending movements to stimulate the spine and internal organs.

When you twist and bend in Qigong, you’re reconnecting your mind with your body and releasing stress. These movements send fresh oxygenated blood around the body and up to the brain while gently opening up your spine, back, and shoulders.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • A moving meditation to twist your spine and central meridian together
  • The second of the 4 Cycles, “Five Damages, Seven Harms, Looking Back”
  • How practicing balance with Qigong can keep you young
  • Why the fountain of youth is found in your kidneys with the Melt the Snowy Mountain visualization
 

Module 3: Cycle 3 — “Opening the Window to Admire the Moon, Drive Away Fire From the Heart” for Breathing More Deeply & Managing Anxiety and Stress (May 28)

 

Robert will guide you to explore lateral stretching and stance work, moving through the third of the 4 Cycles, “Opening the Window to Admire the Moon, Drive Away Fire From the Heart.”

This movement opens up the chest and lateral body lines, encouraging deeper breathing and promoting an emotional release that can help manage stress and anxiety.

Learn how the concept of energetic heat indicates an imbalance of emotions that results in anxiety and anger. Robert will share a movement to help you get rid of this emotional imbalance — and why it’s important to be open to receiving.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • The “Opening the Window to Admire the Moon, Drive Away Fire From the Heart” movement to stand with more strength and resilience as you calm the mind
  • A pushing Qigong movement to “open the window”
  • Eagle Claw, a pulling Qigong movement to grasp and move energy
  • Combining the bow/lunge stance and breathing to build up a Qi field that can calm your mind
  • How to breathe more deeply to feel confident and peaceful
 

Module 4: Cycle 4 — “Catching Emptiness, Striking at Emptiness, the Strength Will Not Give Out,” for Developing Precision, Cultivating Vitality & Boosting Your Immune System (June 4)

 

Robert will share exercises — including the last of the 4 Cycles — to build muscle strength, improve Qi circulation, and enhance overall body awareness and coordination.

You’ll practice punching/grabbing nothing to increase your strength and work with your internal Qi, focusing on developing precision, power, and intention in your movements.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Punching and grabbing the air movement for cultivating vitality
  • Connecting with your Guardian Qi to support the immune system
  • Becoming more capable at navigating life’s difficult situations
  • Training your core of energy in the lower dantian
  • The horse stance, to punch and build up an abundance of vital Qi
 

Module 5: Refinement & Integration Session for Improving Your Mind-Body-Spirit Connection (June 11)

 

With all 4 Cycles introduced, Robert will now guide you to refine and integrate all of the movements.

You’ll deepen your practice and begin to link them together into a single seamless flow, enhancing the mind-body-spirit connection.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • Additional fun variations on the 4 Cycles
  • Twisting the eye and face of the fist movement for enriching the tendons
 

Module 6: Complementary Techniques for Deepening Your 4 Cycles Qigong Practice (June 18)

 

As you become more comfortable with 4 Cycles Qigong, Robert will introduce complementary techniques for enriching your practice.

These techniques include meditation, breathing exercises, and self-care massage to amplify your practice and provide tools for self-healing.

In this module, you’ll explore:

  • How to protect yourself and your energy
  • Nourish the Qi with self-care massage
  • Use the energy from your fingertips to care for your brain and head
 

Module 7: Create a Plan for Mastery & Daily Practice (June 25)

 

During the final week of the course, you’ll aim to achieve a level of mastery in 4 Cycles Qigong and create a daily practice routine.

Robert will guide you to personalize the practice to fit your specific needs and lifestyle, ensuring a sustainable and impactful practice.

As you’ll experience, Qigong is more than just a physical practice — it’s an invitation to a transformative experience that has been handed down through generations of Shaolin monks.

As you bring 4 Cycles Qigong into your daily life, you’ll become part of a living tradition that will guide you toward a harmonious balance of strength and flexibility... vigor and calm... endurance and ease.

In this module, you’ll explore how to:

  • Match your commitment to how much time you have during the day
  • Arrange a primary and secondary self-care practice each day
  • Protect yourself energetically when you arrive somewhere and it doesn’t feel energetically safe
  • Empower your home and workspace with positive energy

About Master Robert Peng

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 various cultures can easily understand and follow while enjoying the real essence of this ancient Chinese healing art of wisdom, love, and vitality.

Robert is author of The Master Key: Qigong Secrets for Vitality, Love, and Wisdom, and the DVD/CD companion series, The Master Key. 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.

Together with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Pema Chödrön, Robert was honored as one of Spirituality & Health magazine’s Top 10 Spiritual Heroes of 2013 for his contribution to transforming the ancient Chinese healing art of Qigong into one of today’s fastest-growing holistic practices.
