Gathering Qi - Purifying the Heart

A Form of Sheng Zhen Meditation

Gathering Qi (a seated form or a standing form)

Gathering qi is a foundational form in Sheng Zhen. It teaches the student to be relaxed, but open. It introduces 5 pathways, or gateways, where qi can flow into the body. Through these gateways, we also connect with nature and with the universe. Qi comes from love, which is the primary impulse in all of creation.

Open your body to receive qi. Connect with qi, connect with your essence, connect with love.

In this class, you will learn:

  • How to connect deeply with your origin, the Sheng Zhen State
  • How to open your body to receive qi.
  • How to "gather qi" from the universe
  • How to teach your body to remain open and relaxed, even while doing movements.
  • What the 5 energy gateways are, and how to open and use them to quiet your heart, have more energy, feel more peaceful, reduce stress, and more.

Master Li Junfeng

Master Li Junfeng is the founder of the International Sheng Zhen Society. The Society is dedicated to bringing the graceful forms and healing spirit of Sheng Zhen Meditation to the world. Master Li is best known as the former head coach of the renowned Chinese National Martial Arts Team. He was also an award-winning kung fu movie actor and choreographer.

Master Li Junfeng achieved international fame as a popular film actor, action director, and the coach of the Beijing Wushu team. At the height of his career his success brought him into contact with a spiritual master who taught him a simple but profound meditation technique, the Union of Three Hearts. His meditation practice subsequently led to a life-changing epiphany that planted the seeds of Sheng Zhen Meditation in his heart, and he left China to spread this message of Unconditional Love throughout the world.

Today he travels extensively sharing his knowledge and experience with warmth, kindness, humor and patience.
Master Li is presently based in Santa Barbara, California, at the Sheng Zhen Center for Self-Healing. In February 2015, Master Li presented a TEDx talk in New Delhi, India, titled “Earth, a Body Alive.”

Master Li is one of the true living masters of our time. He is the driving force behind bringing Sheng Zhen Meditations, practices of Unconditional Love, into the world. His life is a testament to the value of practicing this system. Master Li travels internationally to train and certify Sheng Zhen Meditation teachers, and to practice or simply spend time with his students. In doing so, he shares his passion, wisdom, humor and love, so that others can also experience the profound joy that permeates his entire being.

The premise of Sheng Zhen is that a life of happiness is humanity's natural state. To experience this, one must open the heart and merge with the Universe. Studying with Master Li gradually brings one back to this original state of total well-being.

Master Li conducts workshops and teacher trainings in countries including Canada, the United States, France, Norway, Germany, Austria, Croatia, Latvia, Israel, Australia, Japan, and the Philippines, among others.

Master Li’s goal is a world permeated with Unconditional Love, in which every person truly loves their neighbor as if they were family. He believes that the practice of Sheng Zhen Meditation is the key to achieving this vision. With regular practice, one comes to experience a Sheng Zhen state: a life steeped in Unconditional Love.

Everything about Master Li emanates a deep and profound love – his kindness, compassion, his joie de vivre, and his seemingly boundless energy and enthusiasm. His heart is as big as the ocean he speaks of in Sheng Zhen teachings – the Divine Ocean that all spiritual seekers strive to reach. To be in his company is an honor and a gift. He lives by the same principles he teaches, and his spirit is radiant. Many who meet him are deeply moved by his presence and return from trainings feeling renewed and transformed.
