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.

Acupuncture points each have a name, a history, and a particular meaning and energy. This course examines the name of the point, its relationship to the elements, to the official (organ system), its location and its relation to the overall context of the patient. Class includes discussion, meditation, art and poetry.
Students will gain a deeper and more personal knowledge of, and relationship to the energetics of particular meridian points. They will increase their skills in choosing points which will support the patient‘s energetic constitution and their psycho/ spiritual well being.
