Clinical Qi Gong Seminars

We are an authorized branch of the Chinese Healing Arts Center, Dr. Tzu-Kuo Shih, Founder and Director, in Danbury, CT. We continue our studies under Master Shih, attend his courses; teach the Qi Healer's Intensive and Qi Gong Therapist Intensive in the Branch Location; and sometimes refer our clients to him and his wife. You may also wish to visit Dr. Shih's Chinese Healing Arts Center website to find out more about the Shih family's services, classes, and offerings.

As a branch of the Chinese Healing Arts Center, we offer:

•Qi Healer Intensive Seminar

•Qi Therapist Intensive Seminar

•(Seasonal Qi Gong - To be announced...)

We teach these intensive courses on the weekends mainly for those of you who can't spare a week, or more, away from work. The Qi Healer
Intensive is taught on consecutive weekends. The Qi Therapist Intensive is also taught on weekends; however, these weekends are not necessarily consecutive, allowing more time for practice between weekend sessions (see schedule).
The timing for each weekend training begins Friday evening (5:30-9:30pm) and continues Saturday and Sunday (9am-5pm). 

Qi Healer Intensive Seminar

The primary objective is that you will be able to assess and balance another's Qi at course end. To accomplish this, most of the first 3-4 days of the two weekend course focus on your energy vessel so that you are better equipped in developing skills to work in another's energy field. The remainder of the course focuses on how to assess, adjust, and balance the Qi of another and to verify that change. You will learn and practice special Qi Gong meditations and movements. This is a very special class! Master Shih developed this course and is sharing ancient, effective Qi Gong techniques to produce results in just 6 short days of class!

More specifically, this course is designed to transmit, from the heart, core teachings of Master Shih. Students learn important basics of Qi Gong self-cultivation and how to help others with Qi Healing.
