Roger Jahnke, OMD,
has dedicated his professional life to sharing the powerful ancient healing traditions of China. He is the director and chief instructor of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, in Santa Barbara, Calif., and a cofounder and recent chairperson of the board of the National Qigong Association.
“You will be amazed when you understand the definition of ‘medical’ in relation to qigong mind-body practice,” Roger Jahnke writes. “What limits you or restrains your potential? Pain, inflammation, sleeplessness, low energy, untapped creativity, absence of inner peace, stress, anxiety or depression, or dangerous habits that you don’t even want? Over 50% of us are suffering from or are at risk for chronic diseases that are completely preventable. 100% of us are suffering from stress — stress that can be mastered.
The greatest promise is that we can heal our own pain and suffering, our body-mind-spirit.
Qigong, also known as energy empowerment and Chinese yoga, was developed by China’s shamans more than 5,000 years ago. Drawing on forty years of experience and nine trips to China’s sacred mountains, Roger Jahnke has guided thousands of people in exploring the potential of life’s energies – the qi.
