More than a decade ago, Master Zhou visited Santa Barbara and wowed folks by walking on fire and displaying other amazing physical abilities. In February, Master Zhou will return to S.B. as part of his final world tour before retiring. Zhou is a master of Fire Chi Gong, an ancient Chinese practice that turns body energy into heat and is believed to promote health and cure disease. Zhou has been documented boiling water with his hands, which are said to generate heat of more than 200 degrees, and he is considered a “treasure” in his native China. Master Zhou will be holding workshops in town February 4-16. Events take place at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort (633 E. Cabrillo Blvd).
