Special On-going Programs at TaoZen Association in Tokyo~

Chi Nei Tsang Practitioner Training Course

masahiro chi nei tsang
Chi Nei Tsang (Ki internal organs therapy) works to balance the internal organs and emotions to enhance the vitality of the whole person. It is a holistic Qigong therapy that has been practiced for centuries, but was in danger of disappearing because of political factors, such as the Cultural Revolution. But Sifu Xie Ming, a prominent Tao teacher and practitioner, carried it forward by incorporating it into modern medicine. TaoZen Chi Nei Tsang courses incorporate the traditional method with other practices such as meditation and Qigong. This gives the healer tools for helping others, and for supporting their own emotional and energetic health. The course takes place on 17 Wednesdays, from 10:30am to 6:30pm, between April 16 and December 3.
