Medical Qigong Doctor (MQD)

This is a 2000 hour certification program, which its foundation consists of an additional 200 hours of direct in person instruction with Dr. Shannon over five 5-day intensive seminars which are held three times per year. This is a two-year program. 

Program Overview:  

This is a 2,000-hour  MQD certification program. The MQD program requires the completion of 1,000 hours beyond the MQM certification, totaling 2,000 hours. This level is the most advanced and final stage in formal Medical Qigong training.

MQD training ideally expresses the highest standard of medical qigong knowledge. MQD students should humbly be the best of the best. They should express virtuous life principles that radiate into all their relationships and into their service to society.

Students will develop an advanced understanding of the body's energetic relationship to the physical structure, including mental and emotional disorders, as well as spiritual instigation's attributed to disease formation.

MQD seminars offered will strengthen all aspects of one’s clinical and personal practice regardless of one’s clinical or cultivational emphasis.

Access to online course material will be discontinued 90 days past the last program course attended. However, if students continue enrollment in their program or enroll in the next level of training, then they will have continued access to previous online course material.

Students will be evaluated on course material by the faculty and given oral, written and practical examinations.

What previous MQD students said...

There are people who are masters of their craft, but cannot communicate it. There are people who communicate well, but cannot teach. Rarely do you find someone with Dr. Shannon's level of mastery of Medical Qigong, both energetically and intellectually, who is also a Master Teacher.

He assists the student in learning at all levels of understanding - spiritual, mental, emotional and physical. After a long search and finally coming to Bernard's class, I realized that anything less than this level of training is not training at all.

I searched several years for the right IIMQ teacher and studied under three different ones in the process. Of them all, the experience and ability Dr. Shannon brings to the classroom is by far the most thorough and enriching. I can finally say my search is over.

During the MMQ, we were exposed to prescriptive exercises and meditations and we thought we ‘knew’ them but the way you taught us the Neigong behind the exercises has made a tremendous difference. For example, the Neigong you added to “Pulling down the Heavens” connected me with Heaven, as well as, grounded and rooted me in the Earth so solidly that when I started my practice I immediately felt Qi streaming through me.
