John Locke, who amongst other things,

influenced our founding fathers,

 the American revolutionaries

and whose philosophy can be seen in the

Declaration of Independence states,

 

“Natural Philosophy

[the study of nature]

is not capable of being

made into science.”

 

This thinking is actually a very

Taoist point of view.

Immortal Mind

               2-year Study & Certification Program

In China’s long medical history, many classical Chinese medicine schools developed with different ideologies on how to heal body/mind and sprit (Jing, Qi, Shen).

 The Formless Taoism Immortal Mind  program  was created as a way to assist those interest in Taoism or those in energy medicine work, especially Qigong, to understand the deep inner blockages that could be hindering one’s energy practice or own growth and path in life.

The 2017– 2019 program is structured as one weekend a month, held onsite at Inner Strength, but also for the first time, being offered optionally as distance study using live internet video lecture technology.

Weekend is structured with lecture, meditation practice, philosophical questions and journaling assignments, qigong practice and more.  

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.

The retreat weekends  are designed to:

· To work with the wisdom of nature, as a way to understand one’s self and how to solve 21st century problems. 

· Share new material (not available in books) that  validates the ancient practices  

· Integrate prior reading and self-practice into a deeper understanding 

· Answer questions from a Taoist perspective about what happens when one crosses over 

· Learn valuable philosophy and practice passed down from an oral tradition of over 7,000 years 

· Provide tools for the seekers who have deeper questions of life and its meaning. 

· To discover the uniqueness of one's own mind.

 

This program is perfect for serious Qigong Practitioners, teachers and healers who wish  to further understand their own deep inner blockages, how to  clear them and release their full potential.

It also gives the tools needed to work with qigong students or clients that in addition to the energy work, can help them also reach deeper levels of self understanding.

  • You desire to become more spiritual in your healing practice.

  • You want to deepen your faith in the world of energy medicine into realms and dimensions rarely taught.

  • You are ready to deepen your own self cultivation. Intuitively you know something is lacking in your practice, and you are not sure what that is.

  •  You want to understand and learn to deal with internal and external Gui and Mo – Ghosts and demons.

  •  The world of the Shaman and healer has always interested you, but there was never an opportunity for clear concise instruction.

 

 

Reasons to Begin the Journey into Immortal Mind:

You want to develop a inner strength and self confidence that cannot be shaken 

You want to come to understand your destiny

 You want to overcome the things that are holding you back from truly enjoying life

Often people speak of Body, Mind and Spirit.

But how does this description relate to you personally and or in the manifestation of your moment-by-moment experience?
 
With the premise that mind creates reality, then to understand ones own mind and everything about oneself from a Body, Mind and Spirit plane, one must cultivate the trinity of Mind.
 
The trinity of mind is:  Self-reverence, Self-knowledge and Self-control leading to Self-contemplation, introspection and spiritual research. These are the tenets of Formless Taoism.

 Nature and its unlimited potential are models to learn by and become to understand yourself

The IMMORTAL MIND course starting this November will ask some very deep questions of its participants.

 

It is a course for those who want to explore their unique mind so they can have a higher quality in life.

It is not just for spiritual seekers, but also for those who want to think more efficiently in their daily life and for those who want to preserve their integrity of mind as they inevitably age.

We start in November at the season of shedding the old, releasing what is completed, and beginning to incubate the next cycle of growth.

 

WHY UNDERSTAND THE MIND?

Those who have felt stuck in life, unable to escape their own spiraling thought patterns of depression or lack of self worth have also found this course of study a way out of their own pattern of self limiting thinking. Therapists and healers, business professionals and spiritual leaders have all found this course to assist them in their life work.

 

Deep deep thinking requires hard work. It takes courage and desire to want to know how to live better. The true power of the mind has not been reached yet. The techniques to open the mind are not new, but the way we approach it and teach it is.

 

BRING  YOUR LIFE AND HAPPINESS UP TO THE NEXT LEVEL
If you are well read, and/or meditate frequently, and/or pray frequently and want to see more beauty in living, then this course is for you. Take your spiritual and energetic training to a new level.

 

Such questions, introspections and reflections as: 

  • Who am I?

  • Where am I going in life?

  • Who is in charge?

  • What is mind? What is the brain?

  • What is your relationship between mind, brain and CNS?

  • Particles, Waves, quarks and things that matter

  • What Is consciousness as it applies to daily living?  Spiritual Living?

  • How to be spiritual, yet live among the living

All these questions / introspections will be covered and discussed in a open accepting format, allowing one to open their mind to a linkage thinking process.
 

Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

Prerequisites: 

This course of study is perfect those who love to study spirituality, deepen their connection to the divine, or are the eternal seeker.  As Chinese philosophy and use of medical qigong is a part of the program a background in qigong or Taoism can be helpful but not necessary.

The Medical QiGong for Self Health course is highly suggested, or it’s equivalent, prior to enrollment. As the serious practicing student comes to realize, to assist people in their spiritual journey takes thousands of hours of study and practice -so a weekend or week of study does not adequately qualify anyone to become a teacher or counselor in spiritual matters – hence our 2-year intensive program.

The 2-year program begins November of 2017.

All classes have mandatory attendance with this intensive program as your growth builds with each session. If a student misses a weekend session, he/she must review the recorded video session prior to the next weekend session.  IF this is not possible they must schedule private training with Dr. Cibik within three months of the missed class, at an additional cost not covered by tuition. After 3 missed weekend or one week long retreat  in any one-year without makeup, the student is put on probation with the possibility of release from program  without refund.

Class size in limited in order for quality dissemination of information and personal guidance to each student.  These will occur at Inner Strength Health and Wellness Center, in Leechburg PA. 

Graduates:

Certification as a Immortal Mind/Formless Daoism Disciple will be awarded after the successful completion of the two years of training, passing grades on oral and practical exams, and all financial obligations met.  

Disciples of Formless Daoism may then apply for ordination as a Formless Daoism Priest, which may incur private session costs and addition assignments; based on the students readiness for this path.

 Please contact us with your interest in this program.
