This course is the first of a nine-part series that immerses students in the theory and performance of practices that foster personal and professional cultivation. The principle system studied is the Jinjing School of Qigong, one of China’s true alchemical “nourishing life” traditions. In this first retreat, students are introduced to the history and theoretical foundations of the Jinjing lineage, and begin to practice its fundamental elements, including shaking (tou), walking (zou), and quiet meditation or “settling” (ding). Universe Stance (Yuzhou Zhuang), a specific type of Standing Meditation (Zhan Zhuang), is emphasized, and a sitting “internal alchemy” form (neidan) is introduced. These practices are used to guide students to experience “qi” in their bodies and in nature. The concepts and practices taught are essential components of self-care. A second aspect of this series is the practice of chants from a variety of spiritual traditions. The emphasis is on using sound (hou) to open deeper aspects of the meridians and to awaken the divine nature within.
Eligible applicants for this position must have graduated with at least a master’s degree from an accredited Acupuncture and Oriental medicine institution in China or North America, and be a licensed acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in the state of Oregon.
