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.

Minor Snow is the second of the six cycles of winter. The theme of winter is wisdom and authority and over the next fifteen days nature will enter a new stage of development and reveal unique characteristics as the seasonal cycle unfolds.
In Northern China, during this cycle, snow flurries paint the landscape white and in Southern China cold rain muddies the countryside. Although the color palette varies throughout the country, Minor Snow is a time when the environment becomes harsher and less pleasant.
Snow fall looks pretty through a window but trudging through the cold wind is not fun. Neither is having to wait for the bus in the biting rain. Instinctively, we “brace” against the cold by tightening up. [Read more…] about “Minor Snow” Qigong Empowerment
