Emphasis will be placed on both the analytical/deductive and intuitive/perceptive approaches to comprehending and utilizing Medical Qigong Therapy for cultivation, regulation and clinical application. The experiential aspect of the course is well balanced with a solid theoretical foundation.

Study at Oregon Medical Qigong includes training in quiescence that utilizes traditional sitting and standing meditations. Sitting meditation ripens the mind’s qualities of stability, clarity, and innate strength. An open and radiant quality of awakened heart begins to emerge through sitting. Standing meditation dialates the meridians and channels and opens one to a felt, kinesthetic sense of inner space and outer vastness.
