Our curriculum is drawn from the knowledge gathered from several of the medical universities, institutes, hospitals, and clinics throughout the People's Republic of China. It is fashioned after the Medical Qigong College at the Hai Dian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Beijing, China. The Chinese Ministry of Health honored this curriculum in 2005 as meeting the Chinese standards for academic and clinical instruction. This was the first time a foreign Medical Qigong curriculum has been approved by the Chinese government (Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education), and its academic standards and clinical protocols formally accepted by a Traditional Chinese Medicine University.

Online Training

In today's world of instant gratification, it has become almost the norm to offer online training.  We do not feel that online training is appropriate for our subject matter and consequently we do not offer any of our qigong training online.

Medical Qigong is an energetic practice that requires highly experiential training. We simply do not feel that it can be authentically taught in any way except in person. Our training methods are designed to give you direct experiences of complex theories. Throughout all of our training programs we present the relevant theory, and then, while that theoretical framework is still fresh in your mind, we give you an opportunity to experience that theory with tangible or energetic experiences. There is no substitute for this experience.

  • Dr. Shannon is very gifted at reading people and changing his approach to meet each person where they are at.
    Catherine White, MMQ, Dip ABT
  • You are patient, funny, and generous with what you teach. It is obvious that you really want your students to learn– and are not just presenting material.
