As a tool for cultivating focus and intent, Qigong (also called Chinese yoga) nourishes your passion and appreciation for life. Its roots trace back to Taoism, Buddhism, traditional Chinese energy medicine, and ancient quantum systems. With master teacher Roger Jahnke, you will be shown three powerful forms of qigong to use on your own and to share with clients, family, patients, and friends. Drawing on sources like the ancient Tao Te Ching, you will investigate deeper levels of qigong exercises to cultivate the inner elixir and absorb the power of the universe. When you explore the methods and secrets in the Secret of the Golden Flower, a Chinese text about meditation and a highly refined spiritual form of traditional “elixir alchemy,” you can learn the practices of inner light cultivation and "reversing" methods. As we become skilled at absorbing the power of the universe, we are liberated from stress and experience greater well-being. Health professionals, beginning students of traditional Chinese healing practices, and those who seek healing are welcome, as are experienced qigong, tai chi, and yoga practitioners.
