About the Advanced Integral Qi Cultivation Training
Looking into the dark Mystery brings clarity,
Knowing how to surrender is the greatest strength.
Cultivate your own light
and merge with the source of all light.
This is the practice of eternity.
—Lao Zi, Dao De Jing #52
This final training in the series of IIQTC intensives leading to Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher™ Certification -- Level 3 -- takes Qi cultivation and Integral Qigong and Tai Chi™ to the advanced level – revered in the ancient traditions as Inner Alchemy. The ultimate intent and destination of our cultivation and mastery is to merge with THE ONE (Tai Yi) -- Dao, Cosmic Unity (Wu Ji) and ultimate balance (Tai Ji/Tai Chi).
The integration of the traditional principles of Tai Chi and Qigong are the heart of the Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher Training™ program. While the “forms” of cultivation are the vehicle, it is these principles which are the “formless” gateway to Alchemy and the radical awareness of the ONE.
In the Level 3 training, we will begin by reviewing all previous material from Levels 1 and 2, then proceed to accelerate teaching and leadership skills, optimize the ability to attain advanced Qigong states and learn advanced cultivation skills. We will focus on Shen Gong or Spiritual Qigong, i.e. understanding and revealing the eternal self as reflected in Lao Zi’s Dao De Jing, the Yi Jing (I Ching), Secret of the Golden Flower, The Book of Balance and Harmony, Heart Sutra, Diamond Sutra – all filtered through Dr. Jahnke’s 40 years of distillation and insight.
