In this Medical Qigong 1 course, students are led through a progressive series of Qigong (Energy Skill) exercises and meditations. Basic applications of Medical Qigong Purgation, Tonification and Regulation energetic skills are experienced. Each class includes lecture, demonstration of exercises and personal practice of this energetic medicine. Students are also taught specific Medical Qigong prescription exercises and meditations, and learn how and when to apply them in clinic (e.g., purging excess conditions, tonifying deficiencies, dispersing stagnations and regulating Qi, Blood and Body Fluids). There is also an introduction to energetic psychology, which includes discharging toxic emotions and how to safely handle the emotional discharges or toxic energetic releases coming from their patients.

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.
