Number of participants : 5 to 15
Chinese Physical Culture forms an important and often over looked foundation of channel theory and the practice of channel therapy through the modalities of acupuncture and manual manipulations. Examined through the lens of channel theory, all movement is a form of medicine. If movement follows the laws of nature, it creates health. If it breaks these laws, it creates disease.
Based on a study of a new French translation of Jin Yunting’s 1930 treatise, The Xingyi Boxing Manual and an examination of the Huang Di Neijing Su Wen and Ling Shu, this seminar will offer an experiential exploration of the channel system demonstrating the pivotal relationship between movement and the functioning of the meridians.
We will cover both practical methods of harmonizing the Qi and Blood through movement and the theoretical foundations that allow the effects of movement on metabolism both in the channels and in the Zang Fu to be understood. All forms of exercise can therefore be analyzed for their relative effects according to the tenants of Chinese Medicine.
This five-day seminar is divided in two parts.
The training program is appropriate for any one interested in the study of qigong and neigong for the purpose of optimizing physical performance and improving health and well-being. The program includes 25 hours of class time over five days as well as supplementary training such as early morning qigong and evening free play sessions.
The didactic program is open to all participants but is designed for Acupuncturists and other health care professionals treating with Chinese medicine and will cover the technical aspects of meridian theory that enable the application of the practical training in a clinical setting. The didactic program includes 1.5 hours per day (for a total of 7.5 hours) of lecture as well as course notes and reading materials.
