Qigong Teacher Peter Caughey

talks about this course

The Ba Duan Jin Qigong System

The Ba Duan Jin (8 treasures or eight silk brocade) is one of the oldest known recorded forms of Qigong and it has a total of 8 movements.

It was primarily designed to be a form of medical Qigong to repair injuries and improve overall health. It was also used as part of the training regime in some martial arts.

Each movement has a medical application and stimulates all the meridians to free the body of tension, blockages and illness.

It is an extremely powerful set giving you a greater sense of your own energy and the ability to use the vital life force energy to heal yourself and others.

The exercises increase flexibility, suppleness of the spine and repairs damage caused by excessive emotions.

Taiji & Qigong Teacher, Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncturist.

"My mission is to help people discover the true essence of who they are and to live their life with abundant freedom."

I love helping people break free from their stories that make them unhappy, discontent and unwell. I’ve helped people from all around the world to break free from these stories and I’ve discovered that most of us have similar patterns and beliefs that are limiting us from living our full potential as human beings. 

During my combined 30 years of teaching Taiji (Tai chi) and Qigong and treating people in my acupuncture clinic, I have learnt about how to create a higher quality of health for people and how to break their limiting belief stories.

I have dedicated my life to helping people to have a higher level of health and I encourage them to see the world in a different way. A way that inspires them to enquirer into the possibilities of how they can have a more fulfilling and happier life with a flow on effect that benefits and helps others.
