A Message from the Founder:

I began this website to help solve the three biggest problems facing practitioners of the ancient arts.

The Three Biggest Problems Facing Practitioners

  1. Access to a knowledgeable teacher
  2. Lack of group support
  3. Lack of time & money

These three problems prevent most people from experiencing true Physical, Spiritual, & Emotional advancement!

In my personal journey I have discovered that there are two things that are absolutely essential.  These two key aspects are absolutely essential to make sure you advance on a consistent basis and remain on a safe and healthy path to well-being.

The Two Things You Must Have:

  1. Guidance from a masterful teacher –Truly knowledgeable teachers are often difficult to find and may live a great distance from you.  However, guidance from a masterful teacher is essential to ensure safe and consistent advancement in your practice.
  2. Regular daily solo practice along with group practice when possible – The self-discipline to practice every day is one of the biggest challenges and ultimately most people are far less likely to practice regularly without the support of a group.  Regular practice is probably the most important thing needed to advance your understanding.

My Story

qigong instructor

Jeff Simonton, Instructor/Founder

As you can see, the two most important things for your advancement are directly related to the three biggest problems.  Before I tell you how I plan to eliminate or reduce these problems, let me briefly explain how I came to be interested in Tai Chi, Qigong, Kung Fu, and meditation.  Plus I will reveal how I personally struggled to find a mentor as I was advancing along the path of Spiritual Enlightenment and desperately needed guidance.

Like many people I began my study of Qigong to help cure some problems I was experiencing.  Due to several traumatic events that occurred in my life in a short amount of time I sunk into a depression and began to make myself physically sick.  I experienced stomach pains every day and was trapped in a dark emotional turmoil.  I knew that if I didn’t find help it would eventually overwhelm me.

The Moment My Eyes Opened

meditationI found out about Qigong and its self-healing powers, but after reading various books and studying some videos I felt I was only glimpsing at something, but not really getting it.  Fortunately that all changed when I spent 9 days at a Medical Qigong Intensive with Master Binhui He, a famous Qigong Master known in China for his success at treating seriously ill cancer patients.

During those 9 days I finally felt my own Qi or energy.  I also experienced a release of trapped emotions that afterwards felt like an enormous weight had been lifted from my chest.  I knew right then and there that there was a lot more to life than I realized, and that Qigong was absolutely for real.

The Period of Confusion

tai chiFast forward several years and I had begun teaching my first few classes.  I was certainly an inexperienced teacher at that point, and still in need of guidance myself.  The problem was that I had nowhere to turn.  My original Master was back in China and authentic Qigong Masters are not exactly located on every street corner.

I began to experience phenomenon during my meditations that I did not know to properly handle without some guidance.  I realized at that time the absolute importance of having a teacher to gently guide you along the path when necessary.  Fortunately for me I was able to reach out to Dr. Kevin Chen, who was a senior student of Master He, and he was able to provide the guidance I needed at that time.

Solving the Problems

Once I identified the problems I was determined to come up with a solution, and not just for myself but for all seekers of ancient wisdom experiencing the same roadblocks.

Problem #1 – Access to a knowledgeable teacher

Solution – Provide easy access to authentic Masters who can teach globally through online classes


Problem #2 – Lack of support

Solution – Provide access to teachers and fellow students to help answer questions, and create strong group interaction through forums, chat sessions, and friend connections


Problem #3 – Lack of time and money

Solution – Provide affordable online access to lessons that are short and simple, yet powerful.  There is even an affiliate program for anyone that wants to earn some extra revenue by recommending the site.  All members are automatically signed up as affiliates, so earning recurring commissions is as easy as sending out an email or posting a link up on Facebook!


This site is truly the result of an entire year spent on the planning and implementation of my dream to make authentic Masters accessible and affordable to people throughout the world.

With you as part of the growing community we can truly make this a place of learning, growth, and connections between like-minded individuals.  You will realize that you are not just an individual alone seeking knowledge, but part of something much bigger!
