In Medical Qigong IV, students are introduced to advanced Medical Qigong theories and clinical application. Topics include: energy purgation, tonification, regulation and cultivation, as well as the exercises and meditations used as homework prescriptions in the Medical Qigong clinical training. Other topics are: clinical protocols, combining Medical Qigong with other TCM modalities (acupuncture, massage, cupping, moxa and herbs), clinical ethics, clinical burnout, principles and parameters of Medical Qigong therapy, contraindications, and clinical observations of pathological energetic patterns, internal organ prescriptions, and Healing Sound Therapy. Upon completion of this course, students are ready to begin practicing on their own, utilizing Medical Qigong treatment protocols in combination with other TCM modalities, and empowering their patients by teaching them modified Qigong prescriptions to suit their personal needs.
This class meets over two weekends: September 6-7 & 20-21
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.
