This Qigong Formal Study workshop will teach you the fundamental Qigong theories and the Nine Marvelous Qigong Methods of the Heavenly Essence Qigong System on how to cultivate your Qi for your health when you are sitting, standing, walking, and lying down. Great training for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

"Qigong and Taichi have transformed my life forever."

"I first met Liping at Tassajara, and I knew immediately that this was someone with whom I wanted to study. Her soft, bright, and clear demeanor radiated joy, compassion, and an inner calm that was palpable.

Liping is a gifted and dedicated teacher, a true healer, and a deep source of the wisdom traditions of ancient China. She is tireless worker, always working for the benefit of others."

- Steve Brock, photographer/musician

"When Liping inserted her first needle at one of my feet, I literally felt my body opening like a flower and the session released something very deep and left me profoundly relaxed and rejuvenated."
—Linda H
