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 White Dew Empowerment Jieqi Qigong:
On Wednesday September 7th, 2011, the 15th of the 24 yearly seasonal cycles of the Chinese calendar begins. This cycle, White Dew, begins at 7:34 PM EDT.
White Dew is the third of the six cycles of the fall season. The theme of autumn is discernment and objectivity and over the next fifteen days nature will enter a new stage of development and reveal new characteristics as she ripens and matures.
In the previous cycle the expansive thrust of summer exhausted itself and gravity became the dominant force. Our attention shifted from Yang to Yin. In the next seasonal cycle nature continues the process of contraction by yielding to the earth, coolness, and night. In early autumn these three elements join together to create morning dew.
This time of the year dusk is followed by a sudden dip in temperature. The nippy darkness condenses the moisture from the air and at daybreak the following morning the green dress of Mother Nature is blanketed with sparkling dew that shines like a sea of white crystals.
Dew is formed when moisture is “squeezed” from the atmosphere and through this process the autumn sky grows dryer and clearer. These two qualities capture the essence of the current seasonal cycle, White Dew. Psychologically you align with White Dew by “squeezing” excess sentimentality and wishful thinking from your mind. Now is the time for clear thinking and sensible choices. Pay attention to details and use sober reasoning and levelheaded common sense when you make decisions. Strive for competence and precision. These are the qualities symbolized by the clear skies that accompany the white morning dew.
“Back home, during this time of the year, my mother used to stew a chicken with longan fruit and a little honey to balance out the dryness of autumn by nourishing the lungs and spleen. The family would eat together joyfully. Even now, as I recall the fragrance and the taste of the food, I am transported back to my youth…”
Adding a little sweetness and juiciness to your diet during White Dew is a simple way to strengthen your internal organs in anticipation of the more arid and colder weather yet to come.
To deepen your connection to the current seasonal cycle I recommend that you practice the White Dew Empowerment. This empowerment is performed when the sun reaches 165° Longitude (15° Virgo) on September 7th at 7:43 PM EDT (remember to adjust for the time difference if you live in another time zone). The optimal practice time is between 7:34 – 9:34 PM EDT.
The White Dew seasonal cycle lasts fifteen days until September 23rd at 5:04am when the fourth cycle of autumn begins.
Until then, pay attention to the sparkling dew of details that beg your attention.
