Roger Jahnke, OMD,
has dedicated his professional life to sharing the healing traditions of China. He is the director of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, in Santa Barbara, Calif., and author of The Healer Within and The Healing Promise of Qi.
The “Golden Elixir of Longevity and Immortality” is produced within our integrated and coherent body-mind-spirit – also known as our Three Treasures. Every day, in the rarified Esalen atmosphere, we will partake of the Golden Elixir. Primordial Qigong (Wuji Qigong) is known as the mother of tai chi, and was developed by Daoist monk Chang San Feng, the originator of tai chi. It evolved from concepts of Chinese internal alchemy, which originated in Chinese shamanism prior to recorded history.
No matter what qigong you have experienced or if you are just entering the immense sea of qigong opportunities, the essence of qigong is the always the destination! Awaken and refine natural healing and intuitive powers and capacities associated with the most mysterious and neglected aspect of being — the eternal nature, or universal self. In ancient China this is universal energy – The Qi! Health, well-being, and even vital longevity can be achieved through cultivating and mastering qi (prana in India).
