In China’s long medical
history, many classical Chinese medicine schools developed
with different ideologies on how to heal body/mind and spirit
(Jing, Qi, Shen).
Formless Taoism Immortal Mind®
was created as a way to
assist those interested in Taoism or those in energy medicine
and spiritual work, especially Qigong, to understand the deep inner
blockages that could be hindering one’s energy practice or
own growth and path in life. It's basis is to counsel and
coach people to discover their own inner divinity.
The program is
structured as one weekend a month, held onsite at Inner
Strength, Leechburg PA on our 88 acre retreat setting.
The retreat weekend is structured
with lecture, meditation practice, philosophical questions
and journaling assignments, qigong practice and self
reflection and more.
This program can be taken as a self
development and undersatnd program, or pursued for a
Spiritual Coaching certification, followed by an Formless
Taoism Ordination program.
The course is designed
for serious students to dedicate off-campus time for
reading, research and study, doing self-cultivation
practice, and becoming introspective of their studies with
silent retreat time as a part of the weekend work.
retreat weekends are designed to:
work with the wisdom of nature, as a way to understand one’s
self and how to solve 21st century problems.
