The power to prevent illness, enhance strength and vitality, and even promote inner peace, lies in discovering the secrets to cultivating what the Chinese call "Qi" through the ancient practice of Qigong.
 
Indeed, your inner healer is activated through Qi Medicine and the practice of Qigong, which is as relevant today as ever - and given the pace and stress of modern life, perhaps even more so!

And that's why I'm excited to invite you to a complimentary hour of information and inspiration with my  teacher, DR ROGER JAHNKE, a Chinese medicine doctor and master Qigong and Tai Chion Saturday. He will be speaking on November 10 at 1 pm (EST).  His presentation is entitled   Discover the Power of Qi Medicine: Traditional Chinese Techniques to Prevent Disease & Activate the Healer Within You.
 
You'll discover self-empowering, healing, mood-boosting practices for your self-care regimen that complement Western-medicine approaches to your health.
 

This virtual event is free - but be sure to register here:

A downloadable recording will be provided later to all who register, whether or not you listen to the scheduled event.
 

ROGER IS A GREAT TEACHER AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO YOU IF IT IS SOMETHING YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT OR MAYBE YOU ALREADY DO QIGONG AND YOU MIGHT JUST WANT TO FURTHER YOUR STUDIES.

THERE WILL BE A FOLLOW UP 7 HOUR COURSE WHICH YOU CAN SIGN UP FOR IF YOU WISH TO PURSUE IT FURTHER BUT THIS FREE CLASS WILL GIVE YOU A TASTE OF WHY I SPENT 300 HOURS STUDYING WITH HIM.


YOU NEED TO SIGN UP BY NOVEMBER 9TH

THE CLASS IS ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10 AT 1 PM (EST)


At the Reiki Retreat at Pendle Hill last September with Frans Stiene I met  Nathalie Jaspar who I learned wrote a small book called "Reiki as a Spiritual Practice : An Illustrated Guide."

Frans wrote the  Forward:

This is a wonderful book.  First of all Nathalie writes from her own personal direct experience of having practiced these meditation practices. We can know something intellectually, but to really understand what the practices are about, we need to do them on a daily basis.  Having woken with Nathalie over the years in my classes and retreats, I have seen how she has grown and developed a solid personal practice.  This can be seen in her beautiful artwork.  The drawings provide clear instructions on how to practice. There are many ways of teaching: we can teach in an auditory way, in a kinesthetic way and in a visual way.  Nathalie's imagery is stunning, simple and to the point, which makes it easily understood by visual people like me.  

I hope you will enjoy this book as much as I do and that it brings you a deeper understanding of the system of Reiki and how to practice.

A simple way to purchase this book is to write Nathalie an e-mail with your address and she will arrange for it to be shipped to you.  Her e-mail address is    natjaspar@mac.com

Her website is diveintoreiki.com  CLICK HERE FOR HER WEBSITE

For those of you who might need to get back into Reiki or get back into some of the practices to re-energize your practice, I highly recommend this book.

TAI CHI EASY AND THE TEN PHASES OF QI CULTIVATION  

The human system produces the most profound medicine naturally within. Qigong and Tai Chi are time tested tools for activating this incredible human capacity. In the park every morning in China, millions of people practice forms of Tai Chi and Qigong that are very simple, and targeted toward basic energy enhancement and healing.
 
The First Promise of Qi is:  Qi is free and it is everywhere and everyone has direct access to it through simple methods that are easy to learn and practice. Qi can be cultivated purposefully to resolve any challenge or enhance any function.
 
The second promise of Qi is:  Every person who uses Qi cultivation methods consistently experiences some form of health improvement and personal access to greater energy and power. 
 

In this 10   week class we will continue to introduce and review the five movements of Tai Chi Easy and incorporate the ten phases of Qi
cultivatio n into these classes.

Consensus Report

In November 2005, a panel of more than 30 nationally and internationally recognized experts in Qigong and Tai Chi, physical activity and aging and biomedical research gathered to explore and recommend key strategies on issues related to providing accessible and widespread Qi Gong and Tai Chi programs.  

You might find it interesting to glance through the report.

OPPORTUNITY FOR EXPERIENCE



Some of you are aware of Christian Brothers Academy administered by the De La Salle Brothers in Lincroft, New Jersey.  On the grounds of the Academy they also have a Nursing home for their brothers.  I was speaking to Brother John McMahon not too long ago, who is on the staff there. We had a common interest in Reiki and he asked me if any of my past students would be interested in offering Reiki to the brothers who are at the Home.  I said I would share this invitation with you.  It is a good opportunity for those of you looking for experience (and you would be in a friendly and appreciative atmosphere).  

So if you feel drawn to find out more about this, set up an interview with Brother John.  He can be reached at 
732-580-2361.
