Junfeng Li

Junfeng Li is one of those highly cultivated Martial Art and Qigong masters capable of receiving teachings and messages from divine spirits in meditation. It’s a rare opportunity to be with him for 7 days at Eastover, Lenox, MA
In contrast to over 2500 years of wisdom gained from meditative practice and evidence, the relatively short recent history of science - much of which is based on assumptions relating to static matter, is now perceived by most people as the golden rule by which we are meant to judge whether any theory/illuminating idea is valid or not. Western medicine is largely confined to this rigid “box” we humans have created with this limited knowledge. The amount of money required by the medical community for finding cures based just on this “boxed knowledge” has increased costs for the average person seeking medical attention and even health insurance – making both unaffordable for many.

Meanwhile certain things, science has no tools to measure yet, many QiGong masters like Junfeng Li, having cultivated their spirits towards higher consciousness, receive gifts of teaching and transformation from Divinity itself and are being called upon by the divine to transmit this knowledge to enlighten others and help alleviate suffering.

Master Li was head coach of China's National Martial Arts Team, 100+ kids won gold medals with him, had acted and directed in several martial arts films, and was an overnight sensation for playing the main role in the very popular film "Wu Ling Zhi" - Legends of [Martial Art] Heroes.

Yet Master Li continue to search for the internal peace and higher realm of self-realization, searching and study with many of the QiGong masters, cultivating Internal Qi. His sincerity and open heart, brought him not only pristine awareness, also he was “chosen” and passed on Heavenly Qi Gong and Tai Chi teachings, along with a philosophy of life that calls for the unification of all religions, caring for the planet, and saving of the environment. His teaching is passed on from teachings of Lao Tzu, Kuan Yin, Jesus, Muhammad, and other divine spirits.

At that time, China was not quite ready to receive what he had to offer, so the master was called to travel to the Philippines or Germany to start his teaching. Still with two young kids at home, Junfeng Li quit his Head Coach position with the Chinese government, forgoing his entire retirement/pension plan, and traveled to the Philippines with no prior arrangement of support or financial commitment of any sort, trusting only in the message of spirit that support for his work would be there when he arrived.

With such trust in divine consciousness, Master Li spent 14 years in the Philippines, where he began his lifetime dedication to teach Sheng Zhen Gong – the qigong of unconditional love that brings happiness and the “wisdom of life” to all beings. At the same time he recorded these teachings in books and CDs. In 2002, Master Li came to United States and another 14 years passed. At 79 years old, Master Li continues to travel to Asia, Europe, Africa, and all over United States to spread the word of “Opening the Heart with Unconditional Love”.
