2021 International teacher training class

10 April  –  5 June, 2021


Our international Zhineng Qigong teacher training class takes place in the beautiful historic town Shaxi, which is located between Lijiang and Dali in Yunnan Province, China.

This teacher training is for cultivating and improving the quality of international Zhineng Qigong teachers and healers. Through intensive study and practice, participants will become qualified qigong teachers, enabling them to independently teach and solve body and mind problems for themselves and others, and deeply understand the new human culture for creating a new life model.



New international Zhineng Qigong teacher training class

Our teacher training in 2020 will have some new adjustments.

What’s new:

1) Duration of the international teacher training class
From 2021 onwards, each part of the training class (level 1, level 2 and level 3) will last 18 days.
In the years before, each training part lasted 25 days with days off in-between, so that the whole teacher training was about three months long. However, because the international participants often got only a one-month tourist visa for China, they could not attend the whole teacher training. It is only possible to extend the visa for another month at the local place in China. We want to meet these circumstances to support the participants, so that we adjusted the length of the teacher training.

2)  Teachers
More Zhineng Qigong teachers will be involved in the teacher training. For each part of the training classes three Chinese teachers will teach and support the participants.

3)  Training content
The teacher training will be more intensive. Every day the classes will last up to 8 hours, each week with one day off. We will continue to focus on the quality of the training, and we will optimize the on-site training organization. Overall, the teacher training will be compact and intensive while maintaining the quality standards.

4)  Accommodations
The teacher training will take place in a better hotel.
In the years before, the teacher training at Qingcheng mountains were held in hotels that were very basic. Sometimes the conditions of the places did not meet the needs and expectations of the participants. We understand that a nice hotel makes the stay for the participants more enjoyable and more comfortable throughout their entire training period. For this reason, we decided to choose a hotel that offers better services (rooms and meals).

Feedback from students 2018

Orit: „I also feel my willpower and determination has improved a lot from last year – I could stand longer in 3 center merge and push mountain and I even enjoyed it….You teachers gave me inspiration of how to be: so loving, accepting and full of compassion. I have no words to describe what I feel – respect, appreciation, gratefulness, love – are only words…. At the end of the month I really wanted to stay more, I felt very sad to leave….”

Claudia: “Theory lesson were great moments of practice, really opening the mind space. I could follow everything you said, I think I grasped most of it, at least at my level of understanding. I could clearly feel the description of higher level states while you were talking about them. Your English is very clear for me and I am really grateful that you made the effort to learn it because it is such a privilege to interact directly with you, instead of going through a translator….”

Diego: “The place you chose to do the retreat is amazing, I did not know exactly where I was coming until 3 days before I got here, but gradually I started to feel the great Feng Shui this place has, I feel like in another world where time passes different than other places, here I have been able to see the Qi of trees for the first time, and also feel the information of the place.“

Jean-Max: “I really appreciated all exercises to stretch the spine and the muscles. And find the inner peace and joy in the exercises. I think also it was very important to insist for the 3 centers merge which I think is very important and helpful for the practice and the daily life. The lift qi up and pour qi down was also very important and I could really feel my body feeling it strongly.”

Marcela: “I feel now myself at a peace state I have never felt before, not so deep and also I believe this will be life lasting. Every practice has been like a drop of water that is filling an inside Qi lake. I’m also aware something is changing deeply, like really entering into a new harmonious and peaceful world where I’m just myself.”
