Feng shui workshop funds free classes

Qi Gong Grandmaster Hong will teach a special feng shui workshop Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Qi Center in Lihu‘e, according to a recent press release.

The all-day workshop will provide everyday tools for enhancing prosperity for health, finances, romance and family, all within the context of the feng shui tradition, the release states.

Participants will gain an understanding of energetic influences to be experienced during 2007, the Year of the Boar.

“For a millennia, knowledge was kept in the ancient caves of China, and only after decades of training in total commitment was there ever a transmission from Master to student,” the release states. “Grandmaster Hong’s mission has been to walk from the cave of wisdom into the modern classroom, creating a bridge in time and knowledge.”

One of just a few Qi Gong Grandmasters in the United States, he is the only one with a center on Kaua‘i. Hong has mastered disciplines of all five traditional schools of Chinese Feng Shui. He has also mastered the seven systems of Qi Gong, which include healing, intelligence, self-healing, martial arts, herbology, spiritual practices and special abilities. In addition, he is a master of 18 modalities of natural healing. The Hawai‘i State Legislature proclaimed him a “living treasure.”

Trained in China as a physician in Western medicine, Hong’s background includes researching, independently and in affiliation with National Institute of Health and National Cancer Institute, as well as teaching and publishing.

Proceeds from the workshop benefit the nonprofit Qi Center in Lihu‘e, which conducts classes — many provided free of charge — offering natural healing education for those suffering from asthma, allergies, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

There is a minimum donation of $175 at the door.
