Train with Qigong Master Ken Cohen. Created by the second century doctor of Chinese medicine, Hua Tuo, the Five Animal Frolics are among the oldest health and longevity exercises in the world and the standard against which other qigong methods are measured. Learn a complete qigong wellness routine, based on the rooted strength of the Bear, the balance of the Crane, the suppleness of the Monkey, the grace of the Deer, and the power of the Tiger. By practicing these ancient postures and movements, we awaken an ancient part of ourselves and the Paleolithic wisdom of our hunter-gatherer ancestors. We find the spirit of the animals within, and, like them, learn how to connect to the healing power of nature. https://www.qigonghealing.com/copy-of-events-calendar

Train with Qigong Master Ken Cohen. Learn External Qi Healing (EQH)-- the core of China’s ancient healing science of qigong. In EQH, healing energy is projected from the palms and, without physically touching the client, directed into an area of illness, distress, or pain. First, we will learn a complete personal qigong practice to cleanse the body of imbalanced or unneeded energy and recharge it with vitality. Then we will learn the methods of EQH energy assessment, including how to sense the qi of each individual organ, and specific therapeutic gestures used to treat imbalance. We will also explore External Qi wellness “tune-ups”, the use of voice and intent in healing, maintaining appropriate boundaries, and EQH as an adjunct to other modalities such as acupuncture, massage, and Reiki. Beginners are welcome. No previous experience required.
