in Qigong, Meditation, and Tai Chi
Thursday, May 21, 2020
Unlock your inner power to boost your own health — as you receive easy-to-do movements, meditations, and breathing exercises to strengthen your lungs and power up your respiratory system.
What would it be like to feel stress-free, energized, and vibrantly healthy?
Right now, it’s hard not to feel stressed, worried, and vulnerable. Threats to our health are very real, and vitality can seem far from reach.
And when stress goes up, your immune system goes down.
Yet where you have power is in tending to your own life-force energy — your own Qi. Because no matter what else is happening around you, you have an innate ability to access the inner medicine that Qi masters call true healthcare.
There’s never been a more critical time to access your own capacity for vitality and to harness the potent tools that are available within you to be abundantly healthy.
Qigong — which you might know as the ancient system of cultivating Qi — is also a preventative medical practice that’s been called “The Art That Prevents Disease and Prolongs Life.”
And it’s your Wei Qi field, according to renowned Qigong teacher Lee Holden, that’s your first line of defense against external pathogens.
Wei Qi translates to “Protective Qi,” and it’s part of the powerful energy field around your body. The stronger and more nourished your Wei Qi is, the healthier and more resistant you are to the external factors that cause illness.
Lee will be teaching how to cultivate strong, active Wei Qi in a brand-new, we-couldn’t-need-it-more-right-now online training program — to supercharge your ability to stay healthy and well.
Join together with students from around the world to cultivate your Qi through flowing movements and meditation — for greater health, stronger immunity, increased vitality, reduced stress, and much more.
Ancient medicine and modern science agree that stress takes a toll on your physiology, to say the least. But when you have the tools to clear emotional stress and physical tension from your body, your immune system gets a power boost.
The beauty of Qigong is that it takes you beyond “just let go” and deep into tools that work for actually releasing stagnant stress and tension. And when you do that, you harness an inner strength and a sense of peace you might never have felt before.
You tap into that extra resilience your system needs to fight off infection. You build strong, vibrant Qi — the foundation of health and the core of an ironclad immune system.
Step Into the Immune-Boosting Power of Qigong
Called “The Art of Effortless Power,” Qigong elevates energy, reduces stress, and helps you enter the flow state. Imagine being able to drop into effortless flow at will — to feel alive and connected to what you’re doing every day. To feel heightened energy, a lightning bolt of vitality, and the natural ability to live a healthy, resilient, joyful life.
Imagine training yourself to relax consciously so that when a challenge arises — whether it’s personal or global — you can respond with calmness, clarity, and energy rather than tension, worry, and stress.
In this program, Lee will share easy-to-do yet powerful movements, pressure point exercises, relaxing guided meditations, visualizations, and breathwork for doing just that — and building ironclad immunity.
The lungs are connected to Wei Qi, so you’ll explore conscious breathing exercises to release negative energy, power up your respiratory system, and cultivate rich, nourishing Qi.
During each of the seven online sessions, Lee will guide you in grounding principles and elevated aspects of Qigong. You’ll then practice immune-boosting movements and postures, have a chance to ask Lee your questions in Q&A, and integrate everything with an empowering meditation. (If you’re familiar with Lee’s teachings and meditations, you already know how transformational this is!).
You’ll also find out how to create your own holistic Qigong routines, and how to harness your healing and preventative power with Qigong in your everyday life.
If you choose to take this journey, this program offers you powerful tools for strengthening your immune system and releasing stress in uncommonly difficult times.

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, and experiential practices with Lee. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of practices, tools, and principles to release stress and supercharge your immune system.
Module 1: Navigating Your Path to a Supercharged Immune System (May 21)
In this opening session, Lee will guide you to discover the roadmap you’ll need to prevent disease and build an ironclad immune system.
You’ll start by pinpointing where you are on your map right now, and how to get to the treasures you seek: less stress, more energy, abundant vitality, and supercharged immunity. Next you’ll take a quick look at the 5 Branches of Chinese Medicine and how they support your Wei Qi — your protective energy.
Then Lee will take you through a simple, elegant progression of movements to release stress and cultivate your Qi — so your immune system can function at its best.
During this class, you’ll:
- Discover your personal roadmap for transforming stress into vitality
- Experience an Inquiry Meditation to answer the question, Where am I right now on my path to greater health?

Module 2: The Qigong Keys to Preventing Disease & Prolonging Life (May 28)
Qigong has been called “The Art That Prevents Disease and Prolongs Life.” In this module, you’ll dive into grounding principles and elevated aspects of Qigong to activate the innate healing power within you.
You’ll discover the primary factor that Traditional Chinese Medicine views as the root cause of disease. You’ll find out what lowers immunity in the Qigong view, and how to cultivate “Righteous Qi” so there’s no room for negative energy to come in and deplete your immune function.
Lee will also lead you through an Inquiry Meditation to help you navigate the next steps on your roadmap. And he’ll guide you through this week’s immune-boosting Qigong workout — as well as one of the simplest, most easily satisfying practices there is to cultivate positive energy within yourself.
In this class, you’ll explore:
- Powerful postures to build and tonify your Qi
- The relationship between stress — the root cause of disease — and immunity
- How many kinds of Qi there are (more than you might think!), and how to optimize them to prevent disease
- “Pathogenic Qi” versus “Righteous Qi” — why one person can contract an illness and another person doesn’t, or why one person who has an illness suffers greatly and another recovers easily
- How to use the power of your breath to cultivate Zhong Qi, which nourishes your heart and lungs
- An Inquiry Meditation into how to release stress and increase energy
- The Transform Stress Into Vitality Qigong workout
- The Inner-Smile Meditation, a powerful self-compassion practice for cultivating healing energy in your organs and boosting your immune system with feel-good chemistry
Module 3: Deeper Practices Part I — How to Craft Your Own Qigong Routine (June 4)
With over 3,000 styles of Qigong out there, how do you know what to practice or which techniques you need in your life at this time?
In this module, Lee will introduce the 7 Principles of Qigong to give you a deeper understanding of the practice. Exploring the “why” and “when” behind each element of a Qigong routine empowers you to easily craft a practice based on your own intentions and what feels nourishing to you.
This will also help you squeeze more out of the practices you’ve learned so far, and get clarity on what to include — and when to include it — in practices you create yourself to lower anxiety, increase vitality, prevent disease, and supercharge your immunity. As you’ll see, you can tailor health-boosting practices just for yourself, or for those you’re staying at home with too.
This session, Lee will show you:
- The first few 7 Principles of Qigong, and how to weave them together as powerful components of your own holistic routine
- An illustration of how Principle 1 (Breathe) affects your body, emotions, and spirit
- How to use your breath — your quickest source to energy — to change your mood and posture
- How to use Principle 2 (Activate) to increase Qi through your entire system
- Why warming up is crucial to Principle 3 (Invigorate), and how to circulate energy when you’re warming up
- Tips for weaving in stretches that focus not only on flexibility, but on strength and resilience too
- How Principle 4 (Stretch) relates to the Water element
Module 4: Deeper Practices Part II — Tools for Self-Healing (June 11)
In this module, you’ll finish your dive into the 7 Principles of Qigong. And you’ll delve further into how to rev up your self-healing powers when you create your own routines (or practice any set of routines).
Self-healing is a resource everyone should have access to. Modern medicine is full of frustrations — from the long waits in doctors’ offices to the distressing side effects of pharmaceuticals. But with your body’s tremendous healing power, you possess a wise and intelligent system that knows how to self-regulate.
This week, you’ll explore:
- The 7 key acupressure points for self-healing
- Buddha Palm Qigong, an ancient secret Taoist technique for healing hands
- How to harness your inner potential for self-healing with self-love and compassion
- Ways to help a friend or family member gain access to their own strength and power
- The importance of Principle 5 (Flow) for cultivating healing power
- How to stay mindful of Principle 6 (Posture) in every practice
- How to integrate your practice and activate self-healing with the essential Principle 7 (Meditation)
Module 5: Get Into the Flow Effortlessly (June 18)
As you’ve explored, flow is a key principle in Qigong — and Qigong is one of the only forms of exercise that focuses on flowing, water-like movements.
Of all the elements, water is the most flexible. It’s both soft and powerful. It teaches you exactly what the ancients meant when they described Qigong as “The Art of Effortless Power.”
This session, by mirroring the movements of water, you’ll wash away stress and stagnation and develop your inner healing power even further.
You’ll also find out how to create moments where you’re in the flow state, where you feel heightened energy, less stress, connected to the activities you do, and better able than ever to live in a healthy, resilient, joyful way — in deep compassion for yourself and the rest of life, no matter what’s going on in the world.
In this module, you’ll discover how to:
- Move your body like water and release tension
- Effortlessly drop into the flow state at will for peak performance — in your work, your creativity, your workouts, all of your activities
- Allow the flow state to elevate your energy, which supercharges your immune system
- Feel alive and connected to what you’re doing each and every day
- Benefit (again and again) from the Ice to Water, Water to Steam meditation
Module 6: Postures of Power (June 25)
Now that you’ve explored flow in depth, this module will show you how postures are the banks of your river of flow. When the banks are intact, the water flows. Without strong banks, the water leaks out.
In this module, Lee will take you through postures that provide structure for tapping into your healing power. As you’ll explore, your body is like an antenna, a conduit of energy and information. By holding postures with the correct intent, you’ll plug into healing energy and power up your entire mind/body system.
This session, you’ll explore:
- Powerful postures to build and tonify your Qi
- The best postural alignment for the strong flow of energy
- Muscle-, ligament-, and tendon-strengthening postures to release dormant energy, bringing forth your inner strength
- How to tap into Source energy
- The 3 Fundamental Energies: Universe, Earth, and Nature
- An integration meditation
Module 7: Qi Living (July 2)
In your final session with Lee, he’ll share how to sustain your practice and integrate its healing and preventative power in your everyday life.
You’ll pull out your roadmap to see how far you’ve come — and you may notice that you’re moving with greater ease, you’re feeling a new sense of peace, and your body feels stronger, more relaxed, and better able to protect itself.
You’ll also find out how to keep creating the life you truly want with the energy that requires: energy of mind, body, and emotion. You’ll come away with practices you can use for a lifetime to support a supercharged immune system and a healthy, joyous life.
In this closing session, you’ll discover:
- A replenishing-energy strategy for embodying your innate healing power every day
- THE stress-clearing life strategy
- How to use Qigong to create loving relationships
- How to use Qi to manifest a state of health and a way of living that you love
The Qigong to Supercharge Your Immune System Bonus Collection
In addition to Lee’s transformative 7-week virtual course, you’ll receive these powerful bonus sessions to complement the course and take your understanding and practice to an even deeper level.
The 5 Elements: Energy Flow
Video Teaching From Lee Holden
Each of the 5 Elements (Water, Wood, Metal, Fire, and Earth) connects to an internal organ, a body system, and positive and negative emotions. When you work with the elements, you integrate the energies within you from the inside out — physically, mentally, and emotionally — which makes you feel happy, healthy, and whole.
With this classic sequence of movements, you’ll:
- Open your meridian lines — the rivers of energy that flow through your body and energize your internal organs
- Relax into the present moment and access your flow
- Feel connected to your inner strength, power, and grace
Mindfulness Through Movement
Video Training From Lee Holden
Do you find quieting your mind challenging or elusive? Many people find it as tricky as catching wind in a net.
With Qigong, you can quiet your mind through your body because your body is always in the present moment, always right here. Pay attention to your body and your mind enters the present moment.
This practice gives you tools and resources to work with breath, energy, movement, and relaxation so you drop into a deep, rich experience of the present moment and start living with more presence, passion, and vitality.
Qigong for Emotional Balance
Video Teaching From Lee Holden
Emotional balance is so elusive in modern life — especially now. But there really are ways to achieve it — and one way is giving yourself a mini-vacation. True, we can’t go anywhere right now, but you can always retreat into your inner power and draw it forth into this moment.
With this bonus Qigong workshop, you’ll journey into the heart of your capacity for calm, relaxation, and presentness. This video is all about quick, easy-to-do Qigong techniques you can use to recharge your energy whenever you need to, in just five minutes.
You’ll discover how to:
- Build a protective shield of positive energy so you’re guarded from unwanted energy from other people
- Transform negative emotions and energies and quickly return to inner peace
- Break the cycle of stress with simple, easy-to-follow Qigong routines and relaxing meditations
- Release tension from your chest, neck, and shoulders (where we tend to hold on to anger and depression)
- Calm your mind with guided healing meditations (use these to quickly re-center yourself whenever you catch yourself mentally spinning)
- And much more
What People Are Saying About Lee Holden...
“... tremendous changes in my digestive and immune function, energy level, and overall wellbeing...”
I have had severe chronic illness for decades, often completely disabling for long periods of time, often with unremitting pain and discomfort. As a determined, disciplined, committed, and creative person, I have tried countless healing modalities, both conventional and “alternative.” A few have helped. None has helped in the way or to the degree — or with the speed! — that [Lee’s Qigong practice] has... I am thrilled to have found such a wonderful, direct, and effective teacher... I cannot believe the depth and extent of the improvements I’m experiencing in so short a time... In just a few weeks, I’ve seen tremendous changes in my digestive and immune function, energy level, and overall wellbeing, among other improvements. I am thrilled. I cannot wait to see what my health (and life!) is like in six months, a year, two years, five....!
— Candace, Illinois
“My suffering from the stiffness of arthritis is diminishing...”
I am finding joy and freedom daily as I begin each day with one of Lee’s DVDs. My suffering from the stiffness of arthritis is diminishing and the energy I feel from within is amazing. Thank you for bringing this practice to everyone who has the wisdom to access it.
— Lynne W.
"It’s the most doable and relaxing thing I’ve seen in a long time.”
It’s the most doable and relaxing thing I’ve seen in a long time. You don’t have to turn yourself into a pretzel or anything, and it doesn’t seem like exercise. It feels good for your body."
“Not only do we feel better in our bodies, we feel better with each other.”
My wife and I use [Lee’s] Upper Back and Neck program every evening. We love it. Not only do we feel better in our bodies, we feel better with each other.
“It has been four weeks since my injury and I am virtually pain free.”
I have been using Lee’s DVD pretty regularly, about 2 to 3 times a week... I really enjoyed the increased flexibility and the relaxed way I felt after the sessions. I recently pinched a nerve in my neck. The pain was terrible and it radiated into my left forearm and two of my fingertips were numb. After checking it out with my doctor and having X-rays to see the extent of the injury, I began slowly using Lee’s [DVDs]. I can tell you that at first it was pretty slow going and I couldn’t believe how little flexibility I had. I followed the DVD each morning and after I got home from work. I could only tolerate the standing exercises. After each session, I felt a bit better, a little looser, and a little less pain. I also went to see a physiotherapist. He could not get over the recovery that I was experiencing. It wasn’t long before my flexibility returned and my pain subsided. It has been four weeks since my injury and I am virtually pain free. I have a slight bit of numbness remaining in the tip of my index finger. I continue to follow the DVDs each day. Thank you so much for this wonderful gift.
— Mona, Toronto, Canada
“I feel more like myself again than I have for quite a while.”
[Lee’s] DVDs have been a huge help to me these past few months. I wish I had started them much sooner. After lung surgery three years ago, I have been in pain almost daily from deteriorating disks in my neck as well feeling off-centered... I feel more like myself again than I have for quite a while. As long as I keep up, my neck is pain free most of the time, I stand taller... and cliché as it may sound, have an overall greater sense of wellbeing. The meditational aspects are helping me reattain my spiritual center as well.... I am feeling stronger, am able to work harder and remain more focused every day.
— Doreen L., Winchendon, Massachusetts
"My wife thought I’m on a new medication...”
I received the DVDs yesterday. I could not say enough about how wonderful they are. I opened only the first one... and I stayed home today all day to watch and practice it. Not only did I feel so great after a few exercises, I also feel calm and focused. My wife thought I’m on a new medication, and it makes me feel good.
— H. Nguyen, Boston, Massachusetts
"... a very effective and enjoyable way of both exercising and relaxing, physically and mentally.”
I have had a rough year with some chronic health issues and find [Lee’s Qigong practice] to be a very effective and enjoyable way of both exercising and relaxing, physically and mentally. Lee has such a motivating yet gentle and tranquil spirit... he has a gift. How fortunate for so many that he has chosen to share this gift!
— JL, Springfield, Massachusetts
"... a must-have for anyone who has excess tension...”
Lee’s [Qigong practice] is a must-have for anyone who has excess tension in their back and neck. All I can say is give it a try. You will be very pleased.
— Avril Calverwood
"... I was stunned to discover my blood pressure... had gone down...”
I have a very stressful job teaching 150 students at an Australian university. But after just two weeks of doing Qigong, I was stunned to discover my blood pressure (systolic) had gone down 40 points and my diastolic pressure was down 20 points. Thanks so much!
