Buddhist Healing Sounds Qigong
Renew Your Life Force
With Ken Cohen
Learn how to coordinate movement, breathing, and specific sounds to purge the major internal organs – lungs, heart, liver, spleen, and kidneys – of stagnant qi (energy) and fill them with fresh energy, like recharging your body’s batteries.
This qigong style can be traced to the sixth century Buddhist monk Zhi Yi, who believed that harmonious qi was the secret to successful meditation. To complement these gentle exercises, we will practice Standing Meditation to improve alignment, breathing, and balance as well as seated qigong meditations that stimulate the life force to permeate every cell.
Although the emphasis will be on practice, there will also be time for a discussion of the ancient Chinese philosophy of mind-body health and how this information is validated by modern science.
This dynamic and highly enjoyable program is great for beginners and all levels.

“I can honestly say that the floodgates of qi opened for the first time and it has been an experience without words.”
“For five years I have been seeing blood specialists because of an extremely low WBC (white blood cell count). Yesterday I went for my six-month check-up. I could hardly believe it when the doctor told me that my WBC was normal! The improvement is not just a little, but substantial. The main thing that was different was that I have been consistently doing qigong. What else could explain this? I am so grateful and happy. Thank you.”
“Ken Cohen is a rare combination of expert practitioner, gifted scholar, and lucid writer. He manages to convey not only the techniques of qigong, but the wisdom of qigong. His work nourishes the clinician, the scientist, and, most importantly, the average individual looking for practical ways to enhance life and health.”
