2019 will be a year of many changes for us! The Temple of Peace and Virtue was able to fulfill a long standing dream and purchased 369 secluded acres in rural Bradyville, Tennesee, about an hour southeast of Nashville. It is a beautiful and secluded property that allows for direct contact with all the elemental forces. We are very excited about this transition and the possibilities that it will offer for our students. We have moved our Medical Qigong training facility to this new property in Tennessee for 2019.
Please read more for information on our transition schedule.
Dr. Shannon was featured on the NQA's Qi Talks on Thursday, October 13, 2016 to discuss the intricacies of teaching Qigong. You can listen to that interview below.
The world of Qigong is simultaneously simple and yet challenging. At its simplest, it is the combination of movement (or lack thereof), breath, and intention to create a desired energetic outcome. At its most complex, it still is the combination of movement (or lack thereof), breath, and intention to create a desired energetic outcome.
I am saddened to share the news that one of my teachers has passed.
Master Duan Zhi Liang, renowned for his healing abilities, generosity, and compassion, passed on July 12, 2016 at the age of 107.
I had the fortune of meeting and training with Master Duan in 2001 and the memory is still fresh in my mind. It was a Saturday night in his basement apartment near White Cloud Monastery. On that visit we only had a few hours, but the lessons from that evening are still with me today.
