Bruce will explain - and lead you through practical exercises about - how to feel emotional energies related to the organ systems of the body, including negative, positive, and neutral forms the energies assume. His primary emphasis will be on helping you - whether you are an acupuncturist, qigong teacher, or bodyworker - learn to feel and identify the emotions of others - your patients, students, or clients. Through these exercises you’ll naturally learn to feel your own emotional qi with greater clarity.
By tuning into others’ emotional energies you’ll improve your ability to assess their state and condition. You’ll be able to better connect with them before, during, and after treating or teaching them. You’ll also enhance your ability to safeguard yourself from others’ negative energies. In turn, feeling your own emotions more clearly can enable you to become a better practitioner, as well as a better meditator.
I recently returned from a three week instructor training in a chi gung practice called “Gods Playing in the Clouds”. This intensive was held at Menlo College near San Francisco and I’d like to share some details about my experience.
