This article is from Robert Peng’s latest newsletter. Robert is an extraordinary Qigong Master and the author of the book “Qigong Master: My Life and Secret Teachings”, which we have reviewed on this website and highly recommend, as well as his CD’s and DVD’s. We believe so much in his heartfelt teachings that we have recently just completed his intensive 3 month 12 Cycle Yang Qigong course.
Robert Peng‘s newsletter provides seasonal information from the Chinese calendar as well as giving a simple yet powerful practice called Jieqi Qigong. The transition between Jieqi occurs every two weeks. The universal energies released during the first two hours of the new Jieqi are powerful and auspicious just like the energy surge that follows the start of the New Year. Jieqi Qigong is a practice designed to help us absorb that outpouring of universal Qi energy directly into our spine.

The “Cold Dew” Empowerment
On Saturday October 8th, 2011, the 17th of the 24 yearly seasonal cycles of the Chinese solar calendar begins. This cycle, Cold Dew, begins at 11:19 AM EDT.
Cold Dew is the fifth of the six cycles of the fall season. The theme of autumn is discernment and refinement and over the next fifteen days nature will enter a new stage of development and reveal distinct characteristics as she ripens and matures.
The Chinese name for this seasonal cycle is “Hanlu.” “Han” means cold and “lu” means dew. We are now reaching the stage of late autumn when we transition from “cool” weather to the first stage “cold” as witnessed by the chilly morning dew.
There is a popular saying in Guangdong province, “Three mornings after the day of Cold Dew, bridges are needed to cross the river.” In early autumn the ground is still warm like a stovetop recently turned off. But gradually the temperature drops as the autumn chill penetrates the earth. During the next cycle and for the next six months water will be too cold to swim across and the ground will be too cold to walk on barefoot.
In Chinese culture we refer to Cold Qi as “Han Qi.” During Cold Dew, Han Qi is prevalent and we become increasingly susceptible to catching a cold. During early autumn, while the ground is still warm, you can still wear t-shirts and light weight summer clothes comfortably. But Cold Dew signals the time has come to change your wardrobe. Switch from cotton to light wool, especially your socks to protect your feet from Han Qi and do not wear short skirts.
