I. PREREQUISITES for ATTENDING SHENG ZHEN TEACHER TRAINING
In order to attend a SZ TT, everyone (this includes teacher training participants) must have had education in the following forms:
Gathering Qi and Awakening the Soul (Step 1 in SZ curriculum)
SZ Healing Gong – parts 1 & 2 (Step 2 in SZ curriculum),
The Union of Three Hearts and 9 Turns (Step 4 in SZ curriculum) and
either Heaven Nature Gong and Heart Spirit as One (Step 3 in SZ curriculum)
or Heart Mind as One and Listening to the Heart (Step 5 in SZ curriculum).
You may qualify as a Sheng Zhen Teacher in Training Participant or as a Sheng Zhen Seminar Participant. The training experience during the retreat will be the same for all participants. First priority is given to Cert. Sheng Zhen Teachers and Sheng Zhen Teacher in Training Participants. Please take note of the prerequisites written below.
A. Sheng Zhen Teacher in Training Requirements
You have studied Sheng Zhen Gong forms for a minimum of 2 years. This includes a minimum of 54 instruction hours from a certified or approved SZ teacher with at least 12 of your hours from Master Li Junfeng or Li Jing. The date you first started with a Sheng Zhen teacher will be needed when applying for certification. The SZ web site www.shengzhen.org provides a list of certified teachers in your area.
B. Sheng Zhen Seminar Participant Requirements
This option is for those who do not have the minimum 2 years and 54 hours of class time. The TT prerequisites still apply – you will need to know all the forms listed. The training will count towards hours of class time needed for certification. This training will not count towards the 2 TT needed
for certification. Your next TT training you attend can be as a teacher in training participant and count towards teacher certification.
Once you’ve decided you want to join a TT, there are 1 or 2 things you need to submit with your application form:
a) Letter of Recommendation [LOR]
A LOR is required only if you have never attended TT before and is written by a certified SZ teacher on your behalf. The letter should state that you have fulfilled the prerequisites and that you are ready to attend a TT. You may find a Certified Sheng Zhen Teacher listed at www.shengzhen.org.
b) Letter of Intent [LOI]
All participants must write a LOI prior to each TT attended. The LOI is written in your own words, answering these 3 questions:
1) What Is Sheng Zhen Gong?
2) What is your understanding and experience of Sheng Zhen?
3) Do you want to be a Sheng Zhen teacher? If yes, why?
II. SHENG ZHEN TEACHER CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS**
Who can become a Sheng Zhen Teacher?
To be a Sheng Zhen teacher, one must understand the Sheng Zhen philosophy, live a Sheng Zhen life, respect others always (have no conflict with others) and know the various Sheng Zhen Gong forms. All people are encouraged to share the practice with their friends and family after they have learned from Master Li or a local Sheng Zhen teacher. The sharing is not about teaching the forms.
Required to be considered for a Sheng Zhen Teacher Certification:
1. A minimum of 108 instruction hours from a certified or approved SZ teacher with at least 12 of those hours from Master Li Junfeng or Li Jing, and 2 years of practice. These hours are separate class hours from TT hours as a teacher in training participant.
2. Attendance at 2 Teacher Trainings as a “Teacher-in- Training” participant.
3. A minimum of 80 hours teaching Sheng Zhen Gong forms. Note: This does not include demonstrations or leading a group in the movements. It is about practicing teaching the SZ forms to a group of people. Not private classes.
4. All SZ Teacher Certifications are valid for 2 years. To maintain certification, teachers are required to continue their training every 2 years.
** No one is certified unless he or she has attended AT LEAST 2 Teacher Trainings and fulfilled all of the prerequisites. The complete listing of Sheng Zhen Teacher certification requirements may be viewed at www.shenzhen.org.

“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.”
