Our Mission

Confident and calm people care for one another with an open and happy mind.” Qi Gong Grand Master, Ou Wen Wei, October 2016

Our local Pangu Shengong community has had something brewing for quite some time. We are finally happy to announce that we have formed a 501c3 nonprofit corporation called the Golden Hill Charity.

Golden Hill’s mission provides at risk youth and their families with Pangu qi gong, tai chi, yoga, and meditation instruction and services. Our group of certified instructors can’t wait to provide these wonderfully healing coping skills to underserved children and their families. Our goal is that these exercises and healing modalities become empowering life-long habits for those we help.

These practices are currently limited in access to specific socioeconomic groups due to their cost and practice locations. We want to remove that barrier, allowing more people to learn and enjoy the powerful and often times life changing benefits they provide. We strive to be the change. We strive to make a huge difference. We strive to change our community for the better one heart at a time.

We need your help to kick off our mission! Please sponsor our Qi-Gong-A-Thon on Saturday, October 28th. Our local community will come together at Pullen Baptist Church’s chapel to practice, with open hearts, qi gong, tai chi, yoga and meditation from 9 am – 12 noon.  *** Update – With all of the divisiveness in our country in mind, our board has decided to open up the qi-gong-a-thon to ****everyone! We simply ask that you have the intention of peace, love, and unity in your heart. Join us: pray, journal, read from the Bible or Koran, say the rosary … whatever! All hearts are welcome!!! Help us spread good vibes. 9 – Noon at the silver Chapel. Participate for 15 minutes or the entire 3 hours. There is a labyrinth for walking meditation too. 🌏🌞🌚✨🌈🌍

At 1 pm, EVERYONE please join us at Trophy Brewing on 656 Maywood Ave where DJ Lord Redbyrd will spin smooth grooves at our HEART & SOUL After Party. Tasty local beer will flow and the food truck Baozi (southern/Asian fusion) will fill our bellies.  Baozi will donate a portion of that day’s sales to our cause!!!! Thanks Baozi!!!!

What in the world are we thinking? Will this work? YES, we are determined to succeed and a similar nonprofit is already doing about the same work with great success in inner city Baltimore! Check out this inspiring video.  Do ya’ need a tissue after that?

☀️ Gather sponsors and participate for up to three hours if you know any qi gong, meditation, tai chi, or yoga!
🌙 Donate, Sponsor!
❤️ And, of course, join us for the after party at Trophy Brewing on Maywood!

Every Dollar Counts. No donation is too small. Help us spread love and kindness; our community, country and world are in desperate need of good vibes.

I’m so excited! :). For those of you who donated last year for the start-up costs, thank you and be proud! Look at what you have helped start! Great things are now happening. (Stay tuned for articles on benefits of the practices and bios of our board members and certified instructors)

Peace & Love,
Cristen, President & Founder


Our Vision

There is a grassy sunlit hill on the property of our founder Cristen Bopp’s grandfather. It was a place of many fond memories created throughout her young life: a place of safety, peace, and playfulness where she could regroup and find strength.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had a place like that?
She realized in her adult life that she could return to that Golden Hill any time she liked, through mindfulness practices like Pangu Qigong, Yoga, Tai Chi and Meditation. These practices provide for her that same sense of strength and peace without having to travel to her grandfather’s property. She now finds the Golden Hill in her heart.

Our vision is a world where everyone discovers their own Golden Hill, and returns there often for peace and strength. To achieve this vision we have made it our mission to provide Pangu Qigong, Yoga, Tai Chi and Meditation to at risk youth and their families, who may not have access to it otherwise due to socioeconomic and geographic limitations.
YOUR DONATIONS help us remove the barriers by providing instructors directly to these children and their families.
