Program Description

Why do more than three million Americans practice qigong, China's ancient healing art?

For longevity. For health. For peace.

Join Ken Cohen—world-renowned health educator, China scholar, and Qigong Grandmaster—for five days of meditation in motion. Learn a complete qigong wellness routine based on the vitality of the Deer, the power of the Tiger, the balance of the Crane, the suppleness of the Monkey, and the rooted strength of the Bear.

By discussing qigong philosophy and practicing the ancient postures and movements of Five Animal Qigong, under the guidance of a true pioneer and master, you will:

  • Awaken an ancient part of yourself, abundant with the paleolithic wisdom of your hunter-gatherer ancestors
  • Connect with the spirit of the animals within and, like them, learn how to tap into the healing power of nature
  • Be introduced to exciting research that shows how and why qigong improves health
  • Hear stories of the old masters from a scholar and educator who has studied under some of them.

Created by the second century doctor of Chinese medicine, Hua Tuo, the Animal Frolics are among the oldest healing exercises in the world and the standard against which other qigong methods are measured. Leave with a practice capable of fast-tracking you to new heights of mental balance and physical ease.
