From the perspective of Qi, everything in our lives takes place within what we call the Qifield. The Qifield is a subtle field that permeates every aspect of our existence. The Qifield is comprised of both our consciousness (Shen) and Qi, or subtle energy, and is constantly changing and influencing how we experience ourselves and the whole of life. In this workshop, we will begin to learn the profound art of working with these subtle phenomena.

Field School: An Introduction to Qifields

From the perspective of Qi, everything in our lives takes place within what we call the Qifield. The Qifield is a subtle field that permeates every aspect of our existence. The Qifield is comprised of both our consciousness (Shen) and Qi, or subtle energy, and is constantly changing and influencing how we experience ourselves and the whole of life. 

In this workshop, we will begin to learn the profound art of working with these subtle phenomena. Each of us have individual Qifields; and, there are Qifields of particular locations, groups, relationships and processes. In short, everything in the universe has a Qifield, and learning to work with them can have powerful impacts on our health, creativity, well-being, and enjoyment of life.

Grounded in the teachings of Ren Xue, we will learn about Qi and Qifields as taught by traditional Daoist Qigong master Yuan Tze. And, we will also explore scientific, somatic, and psychological perspectives that approach this phenomenon in different ways. Through embodied and meditational practices, students will gain the ability to:

  • sense the nature of their own Qifield and the Qifields around them
  • learn powerful traditional techniques for positive Qifield manipulation, including how to connect with and gather Qi, change the quality of Qi, and embed positive informational patterns into subtle energy
  • gain awareness of traditional perspectives on Qi and its relationship to both Shen (consciousness) and Xin (awakened heart)
  • understand modern research and theories into Qifields and related phenomena
  • practice foundational Qigong methods that can enhance energy and health and help to develop sensitivity to subtle realms

While only an introduction, students will gain powerful tools to carry forward into their lives, as well as an improved capacity to confidently explore and positively influence Qifields on their own. The workshop provides a combination of embodied learning, multimedia presentation, and opportunities to practice, and additional learning with the instructor is available via private consultation.
