After the last week's cupping class, some of the massage therapists have asked me to teach a class on Qigong and I've decided to teach a 5-Sunday module on Heaven and Earth Qigong.
Here is some information about it:
I learned the technique in 1997 from my acupuncture teacher Ling Zhi Sheng and from his father Ling Chin Yi. Ling Chin Yi learned it from his acupuncture teacher who was a well-known acupuncturist in Shanghai in the beginning of the 20th century and who later became the first dean of the Shanghai College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. After his wife's death, Ling Chin Yi's teacher spent two years at a monastery near Shanghai and learned this technique from the monks.
According to my teachers, Heaven and Earh Qigong was designed for acupuncturists because it promotes the flow of Qi into the hands of a practitioner. As such it can be utilized by acupuncturists, massage therapists, or anyone else involved in the hands-on healing arts. I began practicing it in 1997 and I believe this technique was one of the main reasons for my success as a massage therapist and, later, as an acupuncturist. Not only did it enhance the flow of energy through my hands, it improved my intuition and allowed me to diagnose through the hands.
The technique should be practiced twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. It takes about 20 minutes each time.
I will be teaching the class 5 Sundays in the row, starting with Sunday, January 29th and ending Sunday, February 26th. I will teach it at the Pukalani park, next to the public pool.
Each Sunday, the class will start at 10 am and will run for 60-90 minutes. The cost of the entire series is $150.
The class can accommodate up to 15 people and your space is reserved once I receive the tuition.
Please note that tuition, once paid, is non-refundable, so make sure these dates work for you.
