36 Day Sheng Zhen Meditation and Healing of the Heart Retreat with Li Junfeng

Oct 14, 2018 - Nov 19, 2018

In this 36 day retreat, Master Junfeng Li will meditate and practice not only Sheng Zhen Gong with students everyday, but also will share and deploy traditions of practice that can help students develop “Qi” healing energy. This energy will be developed through the transmission of Master Li’s own pure energy. This retreat will also explore traditional ways to channel universal “Qi” to help others heal as well. Through daily Qi cultivation, each person’s energy body will be awakened, and will emerge in harmony with the universe and become a large body of “love” that is full of healing energy for oneself and for others.

Many experienced Sheng Zhen teachers will be at this practice giving support to the students. They will help review Sheng Zhen Gong forms, have practice time together, will answer any questions about daily practices, exchange healing, and help the daily practices. Each student will be arriving at different levels of development in this 36 day retreat, including the teachers themselves.

Food will consist of healthful meals, and intermittent fasting techniques will be taught, which was a traditional concept in developing energy in Qigong. Scientific research will be introduced that can help us understand natural ways to help heal and build our immune system.

About Sheng Zhen Gong:

Sheng Zhen Gong is not just a Qigong practice, it is timeless wisdom delivered in the most original and most basic form of Qigong to guide the way (dao) of life. Sheng Zhen is the sacred truth of unconditional love. This unconditional love is the key to open one’s heart; it is a path to feeling free and liberated. It is also a tool that can help cultivate and merge our consciousness with the universe.

The simple yet poetic moving and non-moving parts of Sheng Zhen exercises help relax the body, calm thoughts, empty the mind, and quiet the heart so that inspiration and creativity become the norm.

As the Editor of Sheng Zhen Gong Anabel Alejandrino says:

“As one learns to let go so that the wisdom of the Qi takes over, life’s journey becomes a road of letting go of fears we hold in our bodies, concepts that render our minds inflexible, feelings in our hearts that we are attached to, and programming in our subconscious that hold us back. In so doing, we make way for what we truly are in essence – infinitely free beings, embodiment of love on every level, sparks of the divine, perfect and full. It is this experience that the practice of Sheng Zhen Gong brings. Ultimately, the practice is a key into one’s own heart, which enables us to walk into one’s own light. In this process, love for oneself becomes a tangible reality. This in turn leads to loving others unconditionally. These are the building blocks to a world of love – to a Sheng Zhen World.”

Curriculum focus:

  • Sheng Zhen’s philosophy – Why Sheng Zhen is the integration of all different healing traditions.
  • Why Sheng Zhen as a spiritual practice is the key to developing the energy healing body.

Other Qigong practice traditions:

  • Self Initiated Qigong (Zifa Gong)
  • The 6 Healing Sounds
  • Standing Post Meditation
  • How fasting in Qigong practice can be used to develop the light body and how science helps modify this traditional tool. How this also aids in the recovery and healing of the body.

  • Nine Turn lying down meditation

Testimonials

“I just wanted to let you know how profoundly affected I was by Master Li’s workshop on Wednesday. I didn’t realize how powerful the effects of the practice were until the next morning, when I was aware that I was actually able to be “present” in the moment in a way I have rarely been able to do. My worries and concerns did not press upon me as they usually do and I was able to contemplate tasks ahead without leaning toward them or worrying about getting them done. It was a profound feeling of calm and contentment. I was also able to look at a couple of problems from a higher altitude of compassion and acceptance… just kind of rising above them instead of being enmeshed and fighting them in my mind.”
