“Most people are so occupied by the external world that they don’t realize that there is a very rich world within themselves. In this stage, we relax, let go, and learn to appreciate that we have an internal universe.”

Our focus for the Therapeutic Qigong Training certificates is to re-aquaint the individual, first, to one's own ability to sense, feel, assess what is taking place in the body and mind, and to recognize one's innate ability to create harmony and balance in one's body, mind, and life, while bringing the awareness that one is not separate from the great mystery, cycles, web of life, but rather, deeply belonging to it.
The next focus of the training is to provide students with the tools to then faciliate this healing journey within the lives of their clients/communities
When one's body, mind and breath are aligned, only then can true, deep healing arise.
