This lecture workshop will explore the basic concepts of the body's energy (chi) meridians as understood in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
The Chinese medical system of meridians is like a roadmap of the different pathways in which Qi (vital energy) flows in the body. Understanding these pathways enables us to see connections between various aspects of the mind and body that we may never have conceived before.
* Discover the root cause of different illnesses and symptoms
* Learn the 12 main Qi meridian pathways of the body
* Locate specific acupressure points on the meridians
* Deepen your practice of Qigong and understanding of health and healing
