  • Become A Certified Qigong Teacher or Practice Leader!:  Teacher Training: Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3 

    This program will not only prepare and certify you to teach Qigong, it can also take you deeper on the journey of Qi Healing, vitality, inner peace and launch or refine your participation as a professional in the emerging new health care system.  In particular, the training emphasizes three intertwined areas – Standing Flow Qigong, Still Qigong and P.K. Medical Qigong.  Our Medical Qigong workshops include learning how to teach prescriptive exercises for common ailments and how to apply targeted mind-body wellness tools to help others and recharge our own Qi.  Through this program you will become an expert in energy self healing, Qi harmonization and Eastern Healing Technologies. This training also strengthens ones power of awareness and supports the practice of Mindfulness and of "becoming one” with what’s happening in the moment (expressed in Japanese through the terms narikiru – become one – or ima-koko – now-here). 

    All Teacher Training Classes are built around your schedule

    To ensure consistency in training, all Teacher Training is conducted through private 90 minute One-on-One classes with Hae Kwang Sunim. These sessions can be utilized as a career move or as a way to add Qi Gong to what you are currently offering in your work.  Level 1 includes Five One-on-One sessions that cover the basic standing series and the healing theory behind P.K. practice.  Level 2 teaches you to lead the basic floor series including P.K. release through the body and the basic P.K. close and universal compassion prayer that is included in an Inner Peace Qigong class. Level 3 will add more Qi opening moves into your standing form and will show you how to teach “Natural Qigong” for even greater infusion of Qi.  It will also show you how to guide people into ‘Hands Qi Gom’ and introduce you to the medical qogong prescriptive exercise for lungs and solar plexus.

    Additional Teacher Training Options: After Level 3 one has the option of taking additional 90 minute training workshops with Hae Kwang Sunim as a way to add even more medical qigong, prescriptive exercises and areas of expertise into the classes.  These level 4 prescriptive workshops turn a 60 minute Inner Peace Zen Qigong class into a 90 minute class.  With each workshop comes greater proficiency as a Qigong teacher and energy healer. 

    This flexible ”Go At Your Own Pace’” Certification schedule is ideal for people who work full time but who wish to add Qigong to what they currently offer - Reiki practitioners, yoga teachers, faith based health ministry co-ordinators, fitness trainers, meditation teachers, wellness coaches, life coaches, health promotion professionals, social workers, occupational therapists, senior activities co-ordinators or virtually anyone that has a genuine interest in teaching Qigong and helping others on their healing journey can go deep with our program.

    Entering The Gate of Inner Peace (Pon Klie) Zen Qi Gong 

    Inner Peace (Pon Klie) Zen Qi Gong brings in Zen training and the essential meditation aspects and it falls into the category of “spiritual” or “inner awakening” Qigong.  It includes the deepest Zen life practices that nurture self awareness, inner peace and harmony in self and nature. The word Zen literally means "meditation", as does the Chinese counterpart and parent, ch'an as does the Sanskrit dhyana.  The state of mind that can result from the practice of Spiritual Qigong may be familiar to some as satori, being one with the Tao or simply the outcome of meditation. It is not possible to achieve the highest of Qigong abilities without dhayana practice. 

    "A teaching not dependent on letters and scriptures,  Directly pointing to your True Nature."    – Bodhidharma 

    The aspects of Spiritual Qigong are rarely emphasized these day in Qigong teacher training programs. However, they were strongly emphasized by my Thai teacher, Luang Pa Prasert (Founder and monk abbot at Wat Bua Luang Temple in Thailand). Students who would like to inquire about  eventually become a graduate level 4 Pon Klie Zen Qigong Teacher-Student (or training as a Zen teacher or as a full Taego Zen monk with partial training in Korea) may apply to Hae Kwang Sunim. Either training is for active members and Benefactors and include dokusan.


    Inner Peace (Pon Klie) Zen Qi Gong:  The Doorway In

    After completing Qigong Flow 103 ‘Associate Instructor Certification’, one can request to join the Inner Peace ‘Pon Klie’ Zen Qigong teacher-student program.  Accepted candidates teach for Bo Kwang Zen, Qigong & Meditation Centre as a way to help bring healing to the community and to carry on the unique blend of Spiritual Qigong that was entrusted to Hae Kwang Sunim by his teacher from Thailand.  And how does one grow in the Practice? There are six words referring to varying degrees of training: keiko, renshu, shunren, tanren, kufu, and shugyo. The first four can be translated respectively as practice, training, discipline, and forging. There are no words for the last two. Shugyo is the deepest spiritual training possible. Refining the self in shugyo is like forging a sword from raw iron ore. The most important ingredient required is to have a humble mind.  Inner Peace ‘Pon Klie’ Zen Qigong teacher-students have been accepted to study and carry on this unique mind-body healing life path due to their humble heart.   


    “To Study Zen is to Study the Self”
    - Zen Master Dogen

    As Tekio Sogen Rotaishi describes it: 

    Calmness of spirit under all circumstances.  Being able to choose to die while sitting zazen. Realizing that every day is a fine day. Acting spontaneously and without restraint. Sitting alone feeling like a high; majestic mountain. Bringing joy to those around you. Accepting any hardship. Acting without concern for public recognition. Seeing things as they truly are.


    At Bo Kwang Zen Qigong and Meditation Centre, all the Qigong arts are integrated with traditional Zen training. Here, entering Zen through the body is emphasized. The student learns through  Qigong to refine breath, posture, and awareness, to cultivate samadhi, a state of complete concentration and relaxation. Through growing samadhi and Zen Life Practice a person starts to transcend dualism and lives more fully, moment by moment.  They learn to live with compassion, self care and a forgiving heart.  They also learn to enter each moment with fresh eyes.  To grow in self reliance.  To commit with endurance and love.
