So, you have made it through all of the level 1 courses and now you are ready for the next step. By now you should know how to heal using meditation and active exercises. You should know how to use acupressure techniques (discussed in Qi-ssage Healing and the Head to Toe Body’s Repair Manual) to heal yourself and others. You’re well on your way, but there is still so much to learn, so much to discover.
Level 2 at the Spring Forest Qigong Centre is the first intermediate step.
Qigong for Healing
The main level 2 course at the Spring Forest Qigong Centre is Qigong for Healing. This includes a number of exercises, techniques and meditations, including the Energy Breathing practice. It essentially takes what you learned in the SFQ Fundamentals course and teaches you how you can use these self-healing techniques to heal others. That’s not all though, as Qigong for Healing also shows you ways that you can improve your self-healing potential, while also preparing you to run practice groups, to become a group healer and more.
The goal for many SFQ practitioners is to eventually become a healer, and this course can help you to take the first steps toward that, while also improving your self-healing power.
As mentioned above, the Energy Breathing practice is part of the Qigong for Healing course, but you can also purchase it as a separate guide, available as an MP3 or on CD.
Energy Breathing is all about your breath. There is no special technique here, and this is very much a “back to basics” approach. But it’s still essential, because one of the reasons that students struggle at this stage is because they are not breathing properly. This is something that you have done all of your life, so it is something that you pay little attention to. And when that happens, you begin to get lazy, to make mistakes and not to take full advantage of what it can offer you.
Proper breathing, as instructed in this guide, can help with all of the following and more:
- Improved Energy Levels
- Better Oxygenation of the Blood and Organs
- Improved Mental Health
- Stronger Lungs
- More Brain Power
- Reduced Anxiety
- Reduced Stress
As a result of all of this, the Energy Breathing technique can also help to reduce blood pressure and other heart problems, while keeping allergies, headaches and sinus problems at bay.
Working with the Masters
Although it is not tied to any specific level, Working with the Masters is a course that fits very nicely into the intermediate setup, making it perfect for students who are at level 2 or level 3. If you have yet to take the Qigong for Healing course, or any other level 2 course for that matter, then you should probably wait before starting on Working with the Masters. But if you’ve already made it through that course and are ready to take the next step into level 3, then this could be a great time.
That’s because a lot of what Working with the Masters teaches is geared towards helping others, something that you will learn a lot about during the level 2 Qigong for Healing course as well as the level 3 Qigong for Advanced Healing course. Working with the Masters is therefore the perfect bridge between these two courses.
This is a recorded teleseminar that is available through the SFQ Digital Library, played as an MP3. It was recorded from a live teleseminar, and while it is no longer available live, it is still hugely beneficial and contains information that is essential for anyone who wants to become a master. Self-realization is key here and the Working with the Masters course will help you to unlock your inner power, to open your heart and to realize healing potential that may have otherwise remained hidden.
The Healing Connection
This is also a teleseminar, and one that is still available live. This is more about self-healing and is a great way to tap into Master Lin’s wisdom, which you can do courtesy of the question and answer segment of the call. The Healing Connection is often considered to be a level 1 course, but the truth is that it is not tied to any level and may actually be better suited for those who have made it through the basics and are ready to tackle practices that are a little more complex.
During this meditation you can connect with students around the world, open your heart, unlock your healing power and benefit directly from Master Lin’s wisdom.
