Forest Rock 200-Hour Live
Online Qigong Teacher Training

2021 | 4 October - 5 December

Never has there been a time before like NOW in the history of human beings.

Many of us are facing big changes in our lives right now, and to quote Tony Robbins ‘The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of uncertainty you can comfortably deal with’.

Now is the time to confront difficult emotions that may have been a barrier to stopping you from everything you want in life.

No matter what you do or achieve in life, there is a way to get there. Qigong is a direct path to connect you with your true self and to something greater than you.

By practicing Qigong you will live in the present moment and face what obstacles arise with confidence and commitment to creating the life that you want.

If you feel that you are being called to stand up and lead, to make a difference in your life and to help others then there has never been a greater time to do this.

Take action now towards creating the quality of life you want for yourself and your loved ones and learn to share the gift of Qigong that keeps on giving.

Much Love,
Peter Caughey
