Yi Ren Qigong Level I :  The Foundation

INSTRUCTOR:  Guan-Cheng Sun, PhD

No Prerequisite for Level I part 1. Beginners Welcome!

freedom-silhouetteThis course teaches the foundational exercises for internal Qi-energy activation, cultivation, grounding and circulation. The purpose of these exercises is to activate and stabilize the energy field, increase internal energy levels and develop the body’s internal energetic communication system.

In part 1, we will learn the internal energy activation exercises, which involve activating the “lifegate” or battery pack of our energy system, followed by cultivating our energy centers and grounding our internal energy.

Then in part 2, we will learn how to activate our marrow and brain gates, which involves connecting with our autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS is the body’s control system, enabling and empowering us to balance and harmonize our internal organ functions. Circulation of the Du and Ren meridians through the Small Universe exercise is key to our information management system. This is preparation for Level II, where we activate and circulate energy through the 12 internal organ meridians.

These Qi-energy based exercises will increase vitality and creativity, enhance immunity and self-healing, and improve the quality of practitioners’ lives.

Level I part 1: September 30 & 31, 2017 

Level I part 2: October 28 & 29, 2017


Yi Ren Qigong Level II :

Activating & Cultivating the Internal Organ Meridians

Prerequisite:  Completion of Level I class or seminarmeridian dummy

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.

Level II part 2: April 22 & 23 to REGISTER>>


Yi Ren Qigong Level III :

Energizing the Extraordinary Meridians

Pre-requisite:  Completion of Yi Ren Qigong Level I class or seminar

the-eight-vesselsThis course introduces methods for developing the awareness of the internal energy flow through the extraordinary meridians.  The extraordinary meridians are associated with the body’s controlling systems: the brain, nervous and endocrine.  By cultivating the Qi and energizing the extraordinary pathways, practitioners have greater opportunities to upgrade the functions of the brain, nervous and endocrine systems.

This process will naturally guide practitioners from Level II and the energetic cultivation of the internal organs to a stage of internal cultivation with external interactions and communications.  The training in this course will also provide an opportunity for experiential understanding of personal and professional boundaries and skills to improve overall health and quality of life.

Level III part 1: May 6 & 7 to REGISTER>>
