Accessible Medical Qigong for Patients and Clinicians
Thursday, 10/25 at 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Explore, learn, and practice simple, accessible methods of medical qigong that practitioners can use for themselves and their patients. The foundations are the classical Chinese Three Treasures concept of body-jing, heartmind-qi, spirit-shen, and the four baskets of practice: body practice, breath practice, mind practice, and self-applied massage.
Long before acupuncture, and as a part of the methods for discovering herbal medicine and acupuncture, there was self-observation and self-cultivation: qigong. The insight and awareness cultivated by ancient sages created Chinese medicine. Today’s clinical practitioners of Chinese medicine can still cultivate the wisdom and insight of the ancients through the practice of qigong in modern times. Dr. Jahnke, with the experience accumulated through ten trips to China and 35 years of clinical practice, will support participants in learning and practicing an accessible form of medical qigong: Bu Zheng Qigong. The foundations for this class are the classical Chinese Three Treasures body-jing, heartmind-qi, spirit-shen, and the four baskets of practice: body practice, breath practice, mind practice, and self-applied massage. A key theme is the idea that teaching people to help heal themselves is in accord with the Huang Di Nei Jing and actually increases financial success.
