NEW Upcoming E-Course!
Qi Immersion: Cultivating Vitality, Energetic Anatomy, and Nourishing Life
An Essential Class for Challenging Times
Live 8 Week Video Series
Join us for a deep dive into the world of Qi! Karen Joy Fletcher and Nate Summers will be leading this 8-week immersion exploring and looking at the inner landscape of meridians, elixir caves, dan tians, chakras and more. Sharing key Qigong exercises and practices and unlocking the energy anatomy of the body, students will develop a core set of exercises and understanding that will stay with them for a lifetime. If you've ever wondered about the nature of energy, how it flows in the body, and how to work with it for maximizing health then this course is for you!
For millenia, human beings have undertstood and harnessed the flow of their inner energy. It's the basis of Chinese Medicine, Yoga, Ayurveda, Qigong, Martial Arts, and more. You could say it is a human birthright.
Yet, in the 21st century we face myriad complexities around honoring our own natural rhythms, inner yearnings, and capacities to strengthen and nourish ourselves from the inside out.
During the course, we will cover topics such as inner energetic anatomy, the flow and inner map of energy and qi, key exercises to cultivate and strengthen the deepest levels of the body, moving and sitting meditation exercises, and more. Participants will learn the revered and powerful Eight Sections Brocade Qigong set which strengthens the whole body while opening all of the qi meridians. In addition, we will learn the basics of Hun Yuan Gong-Primordial Original Qigong which builds the deepest foundational layers of the body.
All classes will be recorded and available for your viewing convenience!
