Qigong is the art and science of refining and cultivating internal energy.
— Ken Cohen
Would you love to master timeless techniques that release stress, foster fluidity, and ground your body and inner being to navigate daily life with ease?
Through simple yet powerful forms and meditations, you can take your healing, health, and vital energy to the next level…
… directing life-force energy (known as “Qi”) to specific parts of your body, transforming anxiety, stress, and disease into self-confidence, inner peace, and optimal health.
The Qigong Global Summit is your opportunity to expand and energize your own Qigong practice under the guidance of masters from around the world — including Daisy Lee, Deng Ming-Dao, Master Chunyi Lin, Lee Holden, Lindsey Wei, Grandmaster Mantak Chia, Master Mingtong Gu, Teja Bell Roshi, Faye Li Yip, Mark Tanaka, and many others.
These renowned instructors will guide you through Qigong techniques you can use yourself, or that you can repurpose to show your students how to choose their moods and energize their bodies… align and cultivate their center core of light… synthesize yoga and Qigong into a combined, potent practice… and claim physical and mental health benefits by engaging in Qigong as a spiritual practice, among other benefits.
Each day will provide experiential opportunities to activate quick shifts in your body, regardless of whether you’re new to Qigong or an experienced practitioner enhancing your skill set.
Over the course of five days, you’ll absorb the philosophies and follow guided Qigong movement and meditation techniques designed to advance you — and your teaching practice — to the next level of mastery.
Also, be sure to keep an eye out for additional professional track sessions and expert panels that will offer leading-edge industry information to add to your toolkit, allowing you to move to the next level in your teaching practice:

You’ll have access to lifelong practice material that will offer benefits long after the summit is over. Whether you’re new to Qigong or a dedicated practitioner, there’s something new for you to learn and add to your routines, or to incorporate into the care you give your clients.
Here’s some of what our foremost Qigong elders and luminaries will be sharing with you…
Master Mingtong Gu will introduce the ancient wisdom and new science of Wisdom Healing Qigong, a self-healing modality that combines gentle movements, sound healing, visualization, and meditation.
Deng Ming-Dao will share profound wisdom teachings from one of the oldest books in the world — the I Ching, also referred to as Yijing, The Book of Changes.
Faye Li Yip will lead an experiential session to demonstrate Ba Duan Jin Qigong, practiced for millennia for its positive effects on one’s body, mind, spiritual wellbeing, and ability to cultivate Yin-Yang balance for vibrant energy.
Lindsey Wei will share about Nei Guan, a form of Daoist quietistic meditation, used as a method of training mind and spirit to observe emptiness and void.
Grandmaster Mantak Chia will explain how to recognize your own positive and negative emotions in order to dissolve self conflict.
Mark Tanaka will discuss how Qigong and other Eastern somatic practices provide unique tools that can help you regulate your nervous system to stay calm and centered, and get unstuck from self-sabotaging patterns.
Teja Bell Roshi will reveal that the healing, restoring, and strengthening dimensions of your Qigong practice weave together profound insights of science into a deep understanding of the human body and psyche.
And much more...
Qigong rises from the insight of shamans and is cultivated through generations of Taoist philosophers, codified in the science of Traditional Chinese Medicine, infused with the spirit of Buddhism, externalized to influence social norms through Confucianism, and updated to meet current challenges.
— Kathryn Davis from her QGS 2023 session
Scientific Evidence Shows Health Benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi
Mind, body, and spirit transformations can occur at the intersection of where the ancient arts of Qigong, Tai Chi, martial arts, and yoga meet.
The benefits of these different practices have been shown to increase self-healing and longevity while alleviating the physical impacts of long-term stress…
… claims that are supported by documented biological evidence — based on Western medicine neuroscience research — verifying the proven health benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi.
Research also shows that Qigong is good for the mind, and can lead to using different aspects of your brain by creating new synaptic connections.
In the Qigong Global Summit, you’ll follow the world’s top Qigong masters as they guide you through simple routines that you can use to deepen your own practice, or to demonstrate for your own students — exercises that amplify joy and vitality while cultivating better health and longevity.
You’ll be in good hands with summit host Sharon Smith, who’s been practicing Qigong, Tai Chi, and other Taoist spiritual and healing arts for more than 40 years, and teaching them for nearly as long…
… summit co-host Sifu Matthew Cohen, founder of Sacred Energy Arts… and summit guest host Daisy Lee, founder of Radiant Lotus Qigong.
