I'm looking for some reviews of  robert peng's  yi jin jing 14 week online course.

Has anyone gone through the course?

I haven't but I know his work and lineage is quite good.

 

He is an accomplished master, and has manifested qi treatments that feel like being zapped with electricity.

Soundstrue.com has some of his courses.  Including his Lotus meditation on sale for 60 cents.  Just a tiny bit of the course but might be a way to see if you connect.

and as zerotao link below points out.  You can sample the 14 week course.

Seen that. Thanks. I've got a couple of his courses. I like his style.

You can get his course for $11.99 on Udemy right now. There are actually a lot of good qigong courses on Udemy.

I like Udemy. They have some really good courses. Check out Vimeo - there are some good courses there as well.

Thanks @Cosmic Soldier for bringing this to my attention.  Looks interesting.  There´s an online course starting July 20 and I think I´m going to do it.

 You're welcome @liminal_luke

 

Even though I couldn't find any reviews I have signed up for it. His reputation alone is more than good enough to take a chance on this.

Sounds interesting.

Can you share any details on his lineage?

What I know I learned from his book:

http://www.robertpeng.com/products.php

 

He trained with Xiao Yao during the cultural revolution, and reached a high degree of cultivation. It is an entertaining read, and illuminating.

 

It is interesting to notice the similarities in his training and recommendations and Master Chun Yi lin, who also trained with Xiao Yao, and went on to train with other masters including Yaunming Zhang.

I´m taking his online Yi Jin Jing course right now and recommend it.  Each of the twelve basic movements correspond with an organ (and, I´m assuming, the corresponding meridian).  So far we´ve done Lung and Large Intestine.  There´s equal emphasis on emotional and physical healing.  For example, the Large Intestine work has to do with letting go of stagnation in our lives -- both the stagnation of blocked waste material (constipation) and emotional stagnation.

Thank you.

 

Do you have any more info on Xiao Yao and any reference to Chunyi Lin studying with him?

Mater Lin's book recounts it some, but doesn't go into details about his training the same way Master Peng's does.

 

It does seem like Xiao Yao has influenced a number of high quality western masters though. Seeing some of Effie Chow's emphasis on the microcosmic orbit/small universe, I wonder if she trained with him as well.

I´m taking the online course and we´ve just gotten to the movement for the heart.  Last night I felt the gentle warmth of heart chi in a way I never have before.  It allowed me to make a necessary apology to my partner and feel close.

So far the course has been great for me.  Peng says that if he had to pick one word to describe the practice it would be "mighty."  I can see that.  Yesterday during practice I found myself in a very determined, warriorlike state of mind.  Not angry, just very yang.  Anyway, that´s how I´d describe it.  

 

I mention this because it´s so different from my usual way of being which is a lot softer.  While I´m not sure I´d like to go through life stuck in warrior mode, it´s been good to touch in with this end of the spectrum.

 

After practice I took a nap and for a little while after I woke up I was different -- more extroverted, saying whatever came to mind with less of a filter.  This change didn´t last more than an hour or so but I enjoyed it.

Sounds like you’re building Yang :)

 

Just make sure to avoid yang tonics and Qi tonics (like ginseng or most other herbal supplements)...

 

I really like chlorella and spirulina for their yin replenishing qualities (which helps fuel the yang).

 

Try to laugh a bit more than usual too :)

 

If you want it to further contribute to your life you can try a few lifestyle habits that improve the efficiency of the yang quality.

 

1. Wake up at the same time every day. When you wake, get up straight away - don’t snooze.

 

2. Increase aerobic / conditioning type exercise.

 

3. Take responsibility for something. You probably do already, but find what it is you take responsibility for and make more of a conscious concerted effort of it.

Actually the "small universe" meditation of SFQ is more likely based on Zhong Gong since they do what's called an "accelerated small universe" meditation. So if Effie P. Chow promotes small universe (I don't remember her mentioning it) she could very easily have gotten it from a number of other sources than Xiao Yao.

 

Do you have any link for Effie Chow talking about the small universe meditation? thanks

this is the only hit I get - I didn't realize this pdf magazine-journal combines Mantak Chia with Effie Chow with Robert Peng, etc.
