This workshop presents Da Bei Qigong, or "Deep Compassion" Qigong, a hands-on-healing medical qigong treatment approach. Students will learn the foundational Classical Chinese medicine theories of medical qigong, along with a variety of acupuncture points used in our treatment protocols. The energetics and therapeutic benefits of the acupuncture points will be discussed in detail.
Emphasis will then turn to hands-on practical Da Bei Qigong diagnostic and treatment experience, and students will gain valuable skills working with each other. Finally, a variety of homework exercise prescriptions will be introduced, time permitting.
The workshop is open to students who have studied with me and those who have prior experience with hands-on-healing. It is intended to be the first in a two part series for those interested in deepening their practice and abilities.
About Da Bei Qigong:
Healing is always about change. The only time you can initiate change is now, in the present. Da Bei Qigong treatments first begin by inviting change in the patient through our compassionate presence before the more technical, hands-on parts of our treatments. This first step is essential and crucial: we are transmitting the state we wish to invoke in our patients.
Our treatments are rather like conversations due to our gentle, "yin" approach. Most treatment modalities require the practitioner to do something TO someone. Instead, in Da Bei Qigong we seek to remind the patient's body to remember that change is possible; our hands are like spark plugs, in a way. We use a finite number of acupoints to address an infinite number of imbalances. Most if not all of these points have second, third or even fourth functions and they were selected for their wide-reaching therapeutic effects.
