I have the immense privilege of presenting with my master next weekend at the Qi Festival!
QI FESTIVAL is a celebration of the ancient Taoist healing
path of alchemy.
This book of alchemical wisdom is written
not with words, but with movement. These deeply healing
and transformational practices, passed down to us from the
Neolithic shaman are still alive today, hidden in plain sight
within the moving forms cherished by modern day Taoist
In a society that has utterly lost its link with the
sacred, these ancient arts give us the possibility to rediscover this connection. This festival is a rare opportunity for students and newcomers to explore the wisdom of sacred moving arts and Qigong.
Led by Master Sat Hon, myself, my wife Alexandra, Alicia Fox, and 2x Emmy Award winner & Senior Shambhala teacher David Nichtern.

I Ching (The Book of Change)
is the foundation for all
wisdom disciplines in China.
The 64 hexagrams express
the subtle flow of destiny
and describe the development of life within the
individual, the human collective and finally the Earth.
In the Art of Sacred Calligraphy,
or Fu, a single stroke is endowed
with a spiritual force. Some call
it Taoist talisman, others have
equated it with Dru id Runes. In
its essence, Fu is the formless trace left behind by
the movement of the sword.
The Sword of No-mind is a
cultivation of razor sharp focus. We
use the sword to cut away delusion,
fantasy, obsession and one’s darkest
demons and emerge victorious. Akin
to the Zoroastrian rites of ripping apart the Ox of
darkness in order to bring light into the universe.
Sacred Dance: Jade Maiden Qigong
A long lost mural with
vivid dance figures with Chinese
inscriptions was discovered hidden
behind a faux wall. Incredibly, it is
an illustration for a long forgotten
sacred dance, the Jade Maiden’s
farewell to the Queen Mother of the West. The
dance has traces of ancient qigong, yoga and Persian
elements woven into this moving art.
Sacred Qigong Explore the core
of a movement not directed by
the mind, nor stored in memory.
An action that flows out in the
spontaneous arising of a deep inner
motion. In that instant, one touches
the sacred, the perfect complete
beingness of now.
Ninja Warrior Qigong
Ninja is a drawing in of the natural energy
of the earth, sky and trees to soar
through the struggle in life and
strengthening our body and mind.
Students will participate in a ritual
of cleansing and rejuvenation of
Who is this for?
For anyone who is interested in using gentle movements to heal themselves and master their body. No prior experience required. Come with an open mind and open heart :-)
What is the difference between Day 1 & Day 2?
The program for both days is the same, however Day 1 will feature a special invocation ceremony. Taoism is all about skillful spontaneous adaptation, so even though the programs and offerings are the same, the way they will be delivered will be quite unique each day.

$175 for 2 Days
$100 for 1 Day
