Tuition + Learning Materials: $495
Learn and practice qigong’s proper foundations for your self-healing and prosperity. No prior experience with qigong is necessary; the qigong practices we learn are gently transformative. In our 9 weeks of qigong care together, life flows into balance and harmony as we bring these qigong practices into our daily living. Through the pureness of qigong and classical Chinese medicine, we work with our chi anatomy and functional physiology to improve health and stamina, and learn key qigong self-healing practices including Chi Nutrition and establish our daily practice of The 5 Constant Virtues to develop consciousness through heart-centeredness to explore and mature into our highest selves. Learning to properly empty the mind into heart and ground emotions into truth, stress’s effects upon health are eliminated, aging is reversed and life transforms into one of graceful purpose and fulfillment. Beyond the purpose of self-healing, this course is also one of two prerequisites that all budding medical qigong practitioners must successfully complete prior to entering their studies in Year 1 of Chi Wellness's Professional Medical Qigong Practitioner Certification curriculum in September 2020.

When given proper vital support through the refinement of our chi, the human body, just like the rest of nature, magnificently expresses the boundless powers of healing and creativity. 67% of our natural healing abilities is empowered through a harmonious combination of proper rest, sedative breathing, quiet contemplation, qigong exercise and medical qigong support. The remaining 33% is focused on intricately harmonizing the chi qualities in our food to completely and permanently eliminate the inflammatory nature of all dis-eases, illnesses and injuries, and to cleanse and strengthen our digestive system to help our bodies better absorb the nutrients from our food that are essential for health improvement. Step by step, our Chi Nutrition workshops share this time-proven wisdom and teach us how to modify what and how we eat to achieve full health. It is helpful, however not required, to engage in the Begin Your Qigong Lifestyle course prior to or simultaneously with this course.

Learn and practice optimal applications of "essential nutrition" in the form of Western and Chinese herbal supplements to complement our personal chi care and fortify our physical and energetic stamina and longevity.

To ascertain the appropriate supplements in certain of these circumstances, it is necessary that we also seek to understand specific aspects of blood chemistry.
