Healer Within™ Practice Leader Certification: Medical Qigong for Stress Mastery, Healing and Vitality
Medical Qigong has powerful roots in ancient healing traditions and also in modern science. The Healer Within™ Practices, developed from a Chinese Medical Qigong known as Bu Zheng Qigong or Vitality Enhancement Method, help your body utilize its own extraordinary medicine through these four essential practices:
• Body practices - posture and movement
• Breathing practice
• Self-applied massage
• Mind focus practice - mindfulness meditation
Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leader Certification: Mind-Body Practice for Self-Care, Inner Power, and Resiliency
Why do tai chi practitioners experience stress relief, inner peace, longevity, and inner power? With Tai Chi Easy, developed by master teacher and doctor of Chinese medicine Roger Jahnke, it’s easy to discover how this happens.
“Qi cultivation strengthens your vitality, and enhanced vitality is a key to liberating creativity,” writes Michael J. Gelb in Creativity On Demand: How to Ignite and Sustain the Fire of Genius. Gelb explains, “The fire of genius isn’t just a metaphor, it is qi.” In the research for this book Gelb interviewed and studied with many of the world’s leading qigong masters including Dr. Roger Jahnke, author of The Healing Power of Qi. Jahnke writes, “The average human being has a longing to create but is not necessarily well enough, or energized enough, to fulfill it.
Qigong is medical by its very nature. Qigong works by improving the practitioners’ immunity response, increasing self-healing and self-recovery capabilities and enhancing self-regeneration potential. Science has demonstrated that humans can prevent 70-80% of the diseases for which they get treated. Qigong practice serves both a preventive and curative function. It is considered to be effective in improving many chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, allergies, asthma, arthritis, depression, anxiety, and addiction.
Health, well-being, and longevity can be achieved through cultivating and mastering qi. Every style of qigong – including tai chi and yoga – shares a basis in essential principles. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to awaken and refine natural healing and intuitive abilities associated with the most mysterious and neglected aspect of being: the eternal nature, or universal self.
