Episode 129: Cultivating Energy with QiGong with Lee Holden Effortless power... sounds too good to be true, right? Well, a QiGong practice, one of the five branches of Chinese medicine, harnesses the natural energy of the body to increase power and decrease pain and stress. On today's episode, you'll learn about:
  • the three keys to experience flow-state
  • an easy movement to feel your own qi
  • why this ancient practice is deeply radical
  • how this energy moves determines the quality of our life

Lee Holden first discovered the healing power of QiGong and tai chi after experiencing injuries that nearly sidelined his Varsity Soccer career at the University of California, Berkeley. Impressed at how these ancient practices healed his body and allowed him to return to playing, he made their study a priority. Today, he is an internationally known instructor in meditation, tai chi, and Qi Gong, as well as a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and author (7 Minutes of Magic, Penguin 2007). His popular library of Qi Gong DVDs have made him a regular fixture on American Public Television and over 105 PBS stations throughout the U.S.and Canada. Lee's unique QiGong programs have been seen in over 50 million households.

Lee’s expertise and down-to-earth teaching style have made him a popular speaker and workshop facilitator. He’s worked with world-famous healer Deepak Chopra as well as Mantak Chia, a widely revered QiGong expert. Holden is also a stress management consultant to top Silicon Valley corporations like Apple, 3Com and Cisco, and has been the on-set wellness consultant for several Hollywood film productions.

Lee is a graduate of U.C., Berkeley, with a BA in Psychology. Lee , a "Doctor of Chinese Medicine," is a graduate of Five Branches Institute in Santa Cruz, a leading acupuncture college in the U.S.
