LEVEL 1: Expanding the Toolbox
• Beyond Body: Sensing & Treating the External Qi Field
Discover the field of energy that radiates from the body, reflecting the strengths (and disharmonies) of the Jing-Body, Qi-Mind, Shen-Spirit, and the major Organ Systems! Focused on development of sensitivity to locate and diagnose the Qi Fields, guided "hands-off" practice sessions help interpret the various sensations of Medical Qigong Diagnosis: physical, emotional, and psycho-spiritual. Basic Treatment Strategies are also covered, with plenty of time for practice and integration.
• Beyond Sight: Sensing & Treating the Organs & Channels
Explore the acupuncture Channels as external manifestations of the Internal Organs, practicing soft palpation and visualization techniques to diagnose Channel obstruction, Organ dysfunction, and Spiritual blocks to the healing process. Basic strategies to address these issues will also be discussed.
• Beyond Beat: The Journey of the Pulse
In Chinese Medicine, Blood can hold unprocessed emotion and memory, seeking resolution by circulating these through the body. Using Medical Qigong Pulse Diagnosis, we delve into the Blood and the subconscious Shen-Spirit, discovering links to emotional etiology, inappropriate belief structures, and suppressed desires that could assist in realigning one’s destiny. Workshop participants will receive instruction in the basic mechanics of Chinese Medicine pulse diagnosis along with plenty of practice time.
