Ancient Wisdom, Embodied Compassion.
What is Qigong?
Qigong is the practice of meditation from the tradition of Taoism.
Unlike other styles of meditation, Qigong places great emphasis on awareness of the energy system for the human being, this will engage your mind and body, and ignite your heart. Qigong is the language of energy, it will awaken your senses.
A vital passion
Qigong will give you that vital passion for self-learning and realization. In the tradition of Qigong, awareness of the energy system (a map of the Cosmos) is “The Way” for a being becoming. You will learn who it is that you really are.
Training is both progressive and highly functional in the establishment of a healthy lifestyle.
The Science behind Qigong meditation is remarkably simple: lower your breathing rate, trigger the bodies natural healing systems—you will rest, repair and rejuvenate.
Emerging from meditation you find yourself energized, focused and better able to complete the real tasks of life.
Our progressive teaching approach is based on mastery of meditation, our comprehensive training program works for you.

The Smile Down
This gentle, seated and closed eyed meditation, teaches one how to soften into the organs and establish the mind body connection. Practice leads one to an organic awareness, or physical experience of the five elements of Chi.
The Six Healing Sounds
In this practice we learn to utilize relaxed, accurate physical movements and sounding through the organs. Sound is a vector (targeted energy) that creates resonance for the essential flow of Chi, initiating the release of excessive, blocked or stagnant energy. The meditation enhances energetic awareness and will increase your quality of sleep.
The Immaculate Backbone
As an advanced meditation, this is the most powerful meditation a person can learn—it is a meditation that teaches each individual to recognize their own unique timing.
In Qigong it is understood that each person enters and will leave life, at a specific point and place in time. The meditation teaches that the key to life, is in the ability to hold center and maintain recognition of your unique timing in life.
Meditative practice becomes that most excellent tool, allowing the fulfillment that comes with the skillful positioning of your energy, in the living of a genuine life.
At this most advanced stage of training one learns to develop the critical ability of body energy pattern recognition. Learning to hold center in an even more powerful way, your entire being will enter into resonance and automatically hold to the realization of correct intention.
Initiating the process of growth and exchanges, our intelligence is guided toward and learns to anchor itself in the many healthy relationships, that await us on the path of life.
The meditation as a qigong practice, provides a vital tool for the protection and preservation of your life-force.
“I am very grateful to have been exposed to Qigong, prior to learning with Stephen I felt a little lost. Within a season of training everything changed, I now have great direction in my life and find myself accomplishing challenging tasks with excellent focus.”
– Nicholas Sapsin, University Student
“Qigong with Sifu Joffe gives us a crystal clear view of the obstacles we face within ourselves in becoming real human beings!”
Stephen Joffe is a practitioner and teacher of 52 years in Kung Fu Qigong. Kung Fu is the work of consciousness or awareness of the field of Chi on Earth which allows a person to cultivate life-force and attain their truth in life, their Tao.
Tao can be literally interpreted as a path, but more importantly it is one’s personal alignment with the forces of Nature, which are subject to the great cosmic impulses. Qigong, encompassing the practices of Taoist meditation, is thus not only the most efficient way to healing, health, and longevity—a skill-based and intelligent existence—but a sacred and comprehensive Cosmological Pathway.
Stephen teaches correspondence with The Universal Law of The Five Elements, and confluence with the field of Chi through The Eight Extraordinary Meridians, which he calls the Subtle Flows. His is the only school on Earth teaching Qigong with such an approach: a clinical precision combined with a reverent appreciation for the passage of the seasons and the beauty of the universe.
Coming into concordance with the principle of Chi, which is YinYang, or more simply, Change, you will attain conscious control of your life-force and enter into harmony with all beings. Improving your relationship with self and others, you will move beyond the relative dimensions of self and learn to lean on the absolute dimensions of self—the interconnected energy systems of the human body and the cosmos. This will increase your awareness of the light within, the wisdom that lies at the center of your being.
This is the lineage in which Stephen teaches, the lineage of light: Shen Ming.
