Workshop Details

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). According to ancient wisdom, every form of moving meditation including tai chi, qigong, and yoga share this basis in essential empowerment principles. Starting with the Three Treasures — Body-Mind-Spirit — you can uncover your natural inner power, through the 9 Phases of Cultivation and Mastery of Qi: Discover, Gather, Circulate, Purify, Direct, Conserve, Store, Transform, and Dissolve. Whether your focus is to heal yourself, serve others, merge with nature, maximize productivity, nourish intuition and creativity, or create inner peace, these 9 Phases, with their roots in ancient healing tradition, are tools with extraordinary powers to release your natural inner potential. The 9 Phases Qigong is distilled from Dr. Roger Jahnke's book, The Healing Promise of Qi, Chinese medical theory, and the philosophies of Taoism and Buddhism.
Recommended reading: Jahnke, The Healing Promise of Qi and The Healer Within.
