Working with the 5-Element System of Chinese Medicine
(Completion of Level 1 required) Qigong
This course introduces methods for developing the Zang Fu, or internal organ-related meridians. We begin to open and develop the internal energy pathways to energize the internal organs. These 12 internal organ pathways form the bridge between the mind and the memories, emotions, intrinsic intelligence and consciousness of the internal organs. These pathways function as an internal energy and intelligence network, both for the internal organ communication and the organs and the living environment. Qi or vital energy is the key for the mind-body connection.
The purpose of energizing the Zang Fu is to empower individuals to experience the functions of the internal organs at different levels through specific internal organ meridian energizing, cultivating and balancing exercises. This course will provide specific information on organ-related character, including each organ’s responsibilities, emotions and virtues. With this information, and coherence between practice and experience, practitioners will learn how thoughts, state of mind, emotional habits and behavior have a direct connection to their health and quality of life.
