In the third module, students will further develop their energetic assessment and treatment skills. New treatment modalities will be introduced and integrated with those already learned in the second module. Students experience a broadening and deepening of energetic theory, and a greater comprehension of the human energetic matrix and the various causes of disharmony and disease.

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.

Greg Cicciu, L.Ac.
7.5 Hours / 6 CEUS (P)

  • Santa Cruz

Come and FEEL what you have been missing.

 

Here is some of what we’ll cover for 6 hours:

  • The yin and yang of the pulse 
  • The physical organ vs. the function of the organ in the pulse
  • Qualitative vs. Quantitative aspects
  • Breaking down the locations more precisely
  • Locating pain through the pulse and letting that guide your acu-points
  • The foundational diagnosis from the pulse
  • Hormonal imbalances within the pulse

 

This workshop has A LOT of practical hands-on, visual aids and discussion. 

Greg will engage and inspire you to experience the pulses in greater depth.  He published his first book in 2011 The Pulse Atlas, an illustrative guide to pulse diagnosis to guide conversations, and demonstrate a clear picture of the pulse.
