Workshop Details

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
With the Healer Within™ framework, you can create a daily mind-body practice that can be performed standing, sitting, or even lying down. The four essential practices restore and nurture a healthy balance of energy throughout your body, and you can learn to share these practices in your community, in yoga studios, and also in hospitals, social service agencies, churches, after-school programs, coaching groups, and more.
The Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi has trained nearly 1,000 teachers and practice leaders worldwide with its comprehensive training, research, philosophy, and principles of mind-body practice and holistic living. Whether you would like to attend for certification or to learn wellness tools for a lifetime, you can awaken the healer within you for radiant well-being.
($15 materials fee for The Healer Within coursebook will be added to the workshop cost)
