Doctorate in Medical Qigong
The Doctorate in Medical Qigong is an accumulation of ancient shamanic and postmodern energetic practices utilized to improve health of body, mind and spirit. It includes the meditation and energy work of the human body sometimes called Study of Communicative Qi. This program continues to deeply explore the foundational principals of all Classical Chinese Medicine (pre-TCM), what healing truly is and the bedrock of how all communication occurs between the physical (Jing) and Spiritual (Shen) realms.
Students will develop an advanced understanding of the body’s energetic relationship to the physical structure, including mental and emotional disorders, as well as spiritual issues that can lead to disease formation. Students at this level will choose a specific disorder or condition for their doctoral thesis, as they continue to study deeply in Dao Yin qigong for oncology and inflammation. Graduates are tested and all conditions of the program completed in order to receive their diploma.
Inner Strength’s curriculum is the longing continuously running program while simultaneously providing the most technologically advanced energetic healing system available for study in the 21st century.
In addition to the robust classical Medical / Clinical QiGong system, we will be including Herbology as an adjunct to the Medical QiGong prescriptions for various imbalances PLUS medicinal food for rebalancing pathology. These three modalities provide the most powerful combination of healing available.
Classical Medical QiGong consists of the oral traditions of Taoism and Buddhism as well as the inclusion of several key texts of healing. The Inner Strength curriculum includes the study of the classic books: The Huangdi Nei Jing which includes the Ling Shu and Su Wen, the Nan Jing, and the Qian Jin Yao Fang or the Thousand Ducat Prescriptions by Sun Si Miao. Additional text selections include the Ben Cao Gang Mu or the Great Pharmacopeia utilizing the Eight Extra channels theory and the study of the Zi Ran Pai or School of Naturalism.
The system of assessment and energetic evaluation of energetic imbalances is too, classical in nature. Inner Strength’s curriculum includes Chinese & western herbals and nutritional prescriptions to fully balance post-natal Qi regulation (Food/drink/herbs/supplements + QiGong = post natal Qi).
Most importantly, we are taking Energy medicine theory as it has been taught in the west, and returning it to the roots of Classical Chinese Medicine.
