Experience Real Health through Emei Qigong
Qigong is said to be one of the most powerful healing modalities known to humankind. This places healthcare back in the hands of the individual.
Emei Qigong is the knowledge and practice, based on over 800 years of energy science, that through cultivating a compassionate heart, physical exercises and movements, helps create clarity and understanding of the Universe so that we can attain gradual or sudden Enlightenment.
Catherine has been recognized since 2000 as a Laoshi (Master) by Grandmaster Fu Wei Zhong, who is the direct 13th Lineage Holder of Emei Chan (Zen) Qigong. The Chinese sometimes refer to him as the “Emei wizard” and “China’s medical Buddha,” and regard him as “the father of modern medical Qigong.” He is a learned scholar: He has read thousands of books, both Chinese and foreign, and is well versed in the medical, philosophical, and theological theories of different schools, both Eastern and Western. He has published six books and more than 20 treatises in China. He has been made lifetime president of two Qigong institutions, the International Medical Qigong Academy and the Emei Linji International Qigong Medical Research Institute. He holds honorary positions and titles in more than 50 hospitals, medical colleges, Qigong clinics, and Qigong associations in China.
Bi means - no and Gu means - grains. This practice is much more then a no-grain diet. This is an elevated meditation that involves levels of fasting. It is completely natural and individualized. During this process we hibernate the functions of the stomach and activate other systems to nourish the body. Weightloss may be one insignificant part of this practice. Bi-Gu brings a tremendous benefit not only to our bodies:
While Bi gu is practiced in a natural way , it will not do any harm and is especially effective for those with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, bronchitis, Lung diseases , obesity, sinusitis, heart disease, digestive problems, nearsightedness, tumors and cancer.
You will also learn pulse and tongue diagnosis so that you can help your friends and family. We will go in to detail regarding the nature and taste of food and how it benefits, depletes, or overall affects our bodies.
Total Cost: $250.00. Catherine will give you instructions, the Bi Gu manual, food and beverages, food preparation training and supervision on different practices. You will go home on Saturday evening and return on Sunday morning with a deeper understanding.
The retreat takes place at the Village Court Center, 4546 El Camino Real, next door to Catherine's office. Please call 650-949-3637 to register.
