Deborah Geffner: “There Is an Immense Well of Kindness in Matthew”

Blake Abramovitz: “Mathew Is a Brilliant Practitioner Who Pours Himself Into His Teaching”

 
“It was wonderful to attend this course!”

It was wonderful to attend this course! I have learned many things about energy and how it can be accessed to control or bring about a state of wellbeing in various adverse contexts. This energy exists, even if it is invisible and is felt in the form of cold or warm air currents, tingling or fullness in the palms. It’s nice to be able to experience this energy.
Bianca, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Sifu Matthew Cohen has collected gems and is now sharing them. His guidance for Wu Ji is worth the price of admission and there is so much more. This is life-changing guidance for all. I am so very grateful for his teaching.
Cathy, Portugal

“This was one of the best classes ever with The Shift Network and I hope Matthew will do a follow-up.”

This was one of the best classes ever with The Shift Network and I hope Matthew will do a follow-up. I loved his mix of meditation, poetry, philosophy and some movement. And he is the first teacher ever to explain why and how you do certain movements.
Ann

“[Matthew’s] wealth of knowledge is presented in a kind and thoughtful way that takes the big mystery out of Qigong and brings it into the realm of normal and doable.”

This course gave me the push to get back to a regular and meaningful Qigong practice. Due to certain circumstances in the last year, I have been unable to get myself motivated to practice internal forms and Matthew’s course has really inspired me to do just that. His wealth of knowledge is presented in a kind and thoughtful way that takes the big mystery out of Qigong and brings it into the realm of normal and doable. This course was absolutely inspiring. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge with such kindness and grace.
Susan, Winnipeg, Canada

“The shift in my energy and emotions after practicing these ancient techniques was profound and unexpected.”

The shift in my energy and emotions after practicing these ancient techniques was profound and unexpected. Some I was particularly drawn to, such as the microcosmic orbit breathing coupled with the visualization; I was immediately able to “drop in” to a calm and mindful state. I now have resources to draw on whenever I need; even in the space of one breath if needed! Absolutely transformative and highly recommended.
Louise, Southampton, United Kingdom
