Bodymind Healing and Qigong: The Self Healing Path
Continuing Education Credits avialable for health professionals. Also open to anyone interested in learning self-healing methods for physical and mental health
Become initiated into the thesis of Dr. Michael Mayer’s book: Tai Chi and Qigong are initiatory traditions stemming from a long-lost lineage that includes self-healing, spiritual unfoldment, self-defense, and changing your life-stance. You’ll learn self-healing practices from the ten-system integrative method, Bodymind Healing Qigong, that Dr. Mayer synthesized over 30 years of training with some of the most respected Tai Chi/Qigong masters. Drawing from his two books on the integration of Qigong and Western mind-body healing methods, Dr Mayer will present a blend of anthropological research, case examples from his work in an integrative medical clinic, and stories from ancient, sacred wisdom-traditions. You’ll discover ways to work with common ailments-insomnia, anxiety, hypertension, chronic pain- as part of your lifetime preventative medicine program.
