The goal is to enter the realm of Alchemy and cultivate the ability to live there.
“The Primordial Qigong workshop I took with Dr. Roger Jahnke deepened my understanding of the ancient roots of Qigong and helped deepen my daily practice. I love the form and love the philosophy. Together they have added a whole new dimension to my life and my profession as a Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher.”
-- Bill Wrenn, Connecticut, Photographer turned Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher
"I love Primordial Qigong – Wuji Gong! The form is beautiful, mesmerizing, and deeply internal. Spending an intense retreat learning and practicing the Wuji is like stepping into a different dimension — a portal into the formless. I emerged feeling strong, centered, and interconnected with life."
-- Lori Furbush, California, Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher and Yoga Instructor, who clearly loves Qigong
"I was able to gain soothing emotional healing insights during the Primordial Qigong Workshop. The meditations and the Primordial Qigong form that we practiced encouraged us to transcend time to view present situations and manifestations from a different perspective. I was able to follow and retrace the thread of a very difficult relationship back to beyond its inception. What was revealed was that the lifelong tension had nothing to do with me. From this perspective I have been able to experience real compassion and forgiveness of self and others. I have been able to let go of some of the anger, resentment and frustration that I so desperately wanted to resolve. I realize that this workshop came at a really important time in my life. I would like to experience the retreat again as I am now a different person. Wuji Gong transformed my Qigong my personal Qigong and added incredible depth to my work as a Qigong an Tai Chi Teacher.”

“I have realized that it is hard to find words for the Primordial Qigong experience – I feel it did what its name implies --- took me out of my mind and into “the great beyond.” I loved the practice and remember waking up day 3 thinking, “I am absolutely pain-free!” -- which is an unusual experience for me. I easily learned the form and contacted some deep and difficult emotional material, processed and released almost effortlessly. A profound and beautiful experience.”
-- Mariah Wentworth, Texas, Retreat Center Owner — Rainbow Hearth
“The Primordial Qigong (Wuji Gong) was my first experience with the IIQTC. The retreat deepened my daily Qigong practice by sharpening my focus on the internal dynamics of Qigong. I came to the training "knowing" that Qigong cultivates internal energy and mind/body/spirit transformation - I left the retreat "feeling" this. Qigong can give you a "rush" or a "high" but rushes do not last. Primordial Qigong added substantial and sustainable depth to my practice. The IIQTC philosophy and approach is a really great way to begin or expand a Qigong practice.”
-- Michael Brown, Wisconsin, Chaplain with the Mayo Health System
“The Primordial Qigong retreat was an amazing week. As a graduate of the Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Instructor Training, I was excited for this further opportunity to deepen my practice under the guidance and wisdom of Dr. Jahnke. The alchemy created by the powerful Wuji Gong form, tranquil setting of the natural environment, and intimate group of earnest participants was - for me - a healing and transformative experience. For the past few years, I’ve been struggling with career burnout and the pain and fatigue of advancing arthritic conditions. The balance between meditative/movement practices and formal/informal scheduling was a profound experience for me. I was on an energy high for over a month following this workshop! The Primordial Qigong workshop is a must for those intent upon navigating their Qigong and Tai Chi practices to a deeper, more meaningful level.”
