Medical Qigong Therapy, a hands-on-healing and Qi emission therapeutic practice, has been used for centuries to balance and restore healthy energy flow in the body, mind and spirit. Based on ancient Daoist and Chinese medical theory, medical qigong is a powerful and effective healing system that has powerful and effective application in any clinical practice.

This 6-weekend series will provide students and practitioners from across healing disciplines the opportunity for deep self-inquiry and qi cultivation, in-depth understanding of Chinese medicine theory and experiential mastery of medical qigong therapeutic diagnostic and treatment techniques.

Three main class goals are:
  • Self-Cultivation: Students will learn and practice several qigong forms, qi sensing boundary setting exercises and Daoist meditations to cultivate their own qi and mind-body-spirit health.
  • Chinese Medicine Theory and Medicinal Daoism: Students will take an in-depth look at key psycho-emotional and cosmological dimensions of medical qigong practice and theory.
  • Medical Qigong Training: Students will build qi sensitivity and qi emission practices with use of qi balls, sound, color, hand postures and movements, channel reading, and medical qigong balancing protocols. They will learn to diagnose, treat, and maintain ongoing support to patients in varied clinical settings.
