The course begins by laying the landscape of alternative practices and where Chi Gung sits within the different systems of medicine and how moving energy is used in other practices. The Chi Gung Diploma Course discusses the difference between Western and Eastern medicines and the difference between alternative and complementary therapies before introducing you to various popular complementary and alternative therapies.
Youll be guided through the practices of meditation and visualisation, discovering what each is, the benefits and how to practice them. This knowledge will then be used with additional skills learned later in the course; self-reflection, focus, listening to your body, understanding the importance of stilling the body and mind, and grounding yourself. Youll also explore the various energy systems and methods of energy movement.
Having deepened your overall knowledge, youll focus in on Chi Gung, as the course explains what it is and how you will benefit from taking up the practice, whether for medical/healing reasons, strength/stamina or for spiritual enlightenment. Youll discover where it came from, how it evolved, how it is practised today and some important names in modern-day Chi Gung.
Chi (or qi), the life energy flow that runs in, through, and out your body, is a fundamental of the Chi Gung practice. Youll be guided through what it is and provided with practical instruction on correct posture and breathing with Chi, as well as some basic techniques for moving Chi around your body.
As with anything you do in life, preparation is as, if not more, important than the action itself. If you prepare well, it is likely to lead to a successful outcome. The Chi Gung Diploma Course guides you through the simple preparations you must make before commencing your practice and how to carry out an opening exercise.
In Chinese philosophy, the five elements are mapped to areas of the human body. You will learn about the focus of each of these elements and the association between these and chi. You will then go on to follow Chi Gung exercises for each element and exercises for specific needs, which will improve health and vitality, heal the body from illness and injury, and develop the powers of the mind. You will also be provided with 3 case studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of Chi Gung therapy.
In addition to teaching you about Chi Gung itself, the course goes further by providing guidance on starting your own Chi Gung business. Youll learn about the different types of business and how to write a business plan, market your business, navigate the legalities of setting up and running a business and lead a Chi Gung class.
