In this Medical Qigong 1 course, students are led through a progressive series of Qigong (Energy Skill) exercises and meditations. Basic applications of Medical Qigong Purgation, Tonification and Regulation energetic skills are experienced. Each class includes lecture, demonstration of exercises and personal practice of this energetic medicine. Students are also taught specific Medical Qigong prescription exercises and meditations, and learn how and when to apply them in clinic (e.g., purging excess conditions, tonifying deficiencies, dispersing stagnations and regulating Qi, Blood and Body Fluids). There is also an introduction to energetic psychology, which includes discharging toxic emotions and how to safely handle the emotional discharges or toxic energetic releases coming from their patients.

About the Instructor:  Thomas has great passion for the inner alchemy practices found in Daoism and other eastern traditions, both as a vehicle for self transformation as well as a means to promote healing ranging from the physical to the spiritual. In 2006, he completed the highest level of training and certification available from the International Institute of Medical Qigong and Henan University of TCM. While studying in China on five separate occasions, Thomas received lineage into the Dragon Gate sect of Daoism at Qingchengshan (青城山) in Sichuan. In addition to Thomas' study and practice of Daoist medicine and healing, he also has a very close association with the great Indian saint Mata Amritanandamayi, better known as Amma, or the hugging saint. He serves on staff for her tours in North America and abroad, absorbing her deep wisdom and compassion for the human condition. Thomas currently teaches medical qigong, energetic medicine, and core mysticism, while offering energetic healing sessions to his students and clients.

Please note that this bilingual class will be offered in both Chinese and English.

In this two-day class, students learn Wu Ji Zhuang, the first stage in Taichi Standing Meditation. Traditional Taichi training starts from Standing Meditation instead of Taichi forms/postures. This is how Taichi masters taught Taichi within their own families. With consistent daily practice of Wu Ji Zhuang, students learn the true meaning of “relaxation” for the body and “awareness and concentration” for the mind. Thus students can improve their physical and emotional well-being significantly and also build a solid foundation for advanced Martial Arts training if they choose to pursue the path. Students are taught how to correctly position the 18 key parts of the body: Head, Feet, Neck, Chin, Teeth, Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist, Finger, Chest, Upper Back, Abdomen, Lower Back, Hip, Buttocks, Knee, Ankle, and Crotch. Every student will get chance to feel the instructors when the techniques are demonstrated. Students gain deeper understanding of the forces of Yin and Yang that will benefit their TCM study. Students also acquire valuable skills to heal themselves through mind and body exercises that can be done anywhere and anytime. They learn to follow the way of Taichi at home, work and everyday life.

In this two-day class, students learn Hun Yuan Zhuang, the second level in Taichi Standing Meditation. Traditional Taichi training starts from Standing Meditation instead of Taichi forms/postures, to cultivate Neigong, or Inner Power. This is how Taichi masters taught Taichi within their own families. In Level 1 Wuji Standing Meditation, students learn the true meaning of “relaxation” for the body and “awareness and concentration” for the mind.

Level 2 Hun Yuan Standing Meditation builds on top of the relaxation technique of Level 1. In Level 2 Huan Yuan Standing Meditation, the instructors will further teach the students how to integrate the relaxed 18 body parts to form a coherent and integral body, and to cultivate a healthy and natural relationship between the body and the mind. Students are taught how to use posture and “Yi” (roughly means the mind) to cultivate “Qi” (or “Chi”) to flow throughout the body. Every student will get chance to feel the instructors when the techniques are demonstrated. Students gain deeper understanding of the forces of Yin and Yang that will benefit their TCM study. Students acquire valuable skills to heal themselves through mind and body exercises. Hun Yuan Standing Meditation is also a key training technique to acquire Martial Arts skills. Students that did not take the Level 1 course can take the Level 2 course, because the Level 1 contents will be reviewed, and they can take a full Level 1 course later on.

In Medical Qigong Level II, students are led through a progressive series of advanced Shengong (Spirit Skill) meditations and exercises. These exercises and meditations are specifically used for developing advanced intuitive diagnostic skills. The students also learn basic Medical Qigong treatment protocols and begin the initial phase of their Medical Qigong clinical experience by performing basic treatments on their fellow classmates. The basics learned in this class include using Medical Qigong for diagnosis and then using purging, tonifying and regulating techniques in the subsequent treatment.

If students are interested in continuing their education to Medical Qigong III and onward, it is highly recommended students to register for anatomy, physiology and TCM Theory I class concurrently.
