What is Qigong and how does it work? Pronounced “chi gong”, Qigong was developed in China thousands of years ago as part of traditional Chinese medicine. Developed with the intention of optimizing energy within the body, mind and spirit, Qigong has both psychological and physical benefits.

This week on INSIDE THE WOONIVERSE, I’m speaking with world-renowned Qigong Master and Healer, Robert Peng. Robert began training at 8-years old, and for the last nearly 30-years, he has been a regular presenter at the Omega Institute, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Esalen Institute – and many organizations and schools.
