Live Well, Live Long Part 1 (50hrs)
2021 Sold Out - 2022 Dates Announced Later This Year
A Different Way
Throw yourself into the practice and theory of long-term health, of illness prevention, of chronic wellness, not of chronic sickness. Studying both the modern science and tradition behind one of one of the world's oldest health modalities - Chinese Medicine theory (zhongyi 中醫), learn to nurture your own body and mind through simple movement, self-massage techniques and diet principles.
And learn to offer them to your students.
In our modern world, too often we look to drugs and surgery to fix our broken bodies. This course provides a different way. Your body is, if you will work with it, enable it to optimize itself... you just have to let it heal...and you must actively heal.
- Receive a full 50hrs of YA Accreditation either as part of our 300hr program, or as a part of your continuing education credits.
You can go at your own pace, but we'll all be going through the program together. We will have our own private communication forum where we can support, share and learn together.
This adds a wonderful group dynamic that makes learning much more fun.
On Demand, Year-Long Access
Remember; if you cannot join live one week or at all, don't stress. All lessons are on-demand and can be accessed at your own pace on your laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
Once you have finished, the whole program can be taken again at any time for a year from our start date. It will be yours to learn and absorb, whenever you need it. Take this course with you. This is a wonderful boon of online study.
10 weeks of Step-By-Step Training
You will receive a total of 5hrs of instruction each week over a total of 10 weeks. These are in 2 parts: A practice and a lecture.
This training will be systematic, inspired by studying both contemporary research on the power of practice, the thousand-year old Taoist science of doing it... not philosophizing.
There is much to learn.
There is much to feel.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat
Each week you will attend (either live or recorded) our practice and lecture sessions.
You must do your practice and you must attend our lectures every week.
Our program is iterative and cumulative, slowly building knowledge and skill. At first, it will seem beyond strange, not fitting in our modern alopathic model of health, oddly foreign. But as time passes this will change as you begin to feel Qi in your body and experience how this affects the totality of you.
And secondly, if you are looking for a certificate for this course, you need to complete all of the course hours.
Learn the Modern Way
There are many ways of approaching this subject. They are all great. We will focus on the science of Chinese Medicine...this speaks to us modern people most.
Progress and awareness arrive by simply noting what is happening in your mind. Though at first glance, crude...when you shine your mind with the light of awareness, the implications of what you experience can be profound, view altering, or just relaxing.
Go Deep. Not Broad.
Each week's practice will build on the experience of the last. What at first seems either impossible or boring (total opposites) will, as you ease into it, become familiar, even comfortable.
With deepening practice, your mind and your emotions settle, you find clarity, a blurring of complete subjectivity and a good dose of compassion.
Weekly Live Lectures
Feel as if you're in a live class with me! These sessions will make it easy to study on your own and set the tone and focus for each week.
Get your questions answered live or in our group chat, watch later or again and again. Join with your laptop, phone, or tablet.
With practice to do 5 times after each lecture, you have lots to do. Play everything from your laptop, or load the practices to your phone or tablet and take them wherever you go.
A webcam is helpful for live sessions. It is nice to see each other.
Course Reading & Journaling
Along with the lectures and practice, you will be assigned two books to read: One on the science of meditation, and another on the traditional approach to meditation. Reading is there to enrich the context in which we study and enhance your awareness of topics and ideas we practice and learn about.
Lastly, you will be offered a journaling framework for each week in the course manual. Journaling provides an opportunity to see progress, change and objectivity in an often emotional landscape. It can be powerful and insightful.
It is not only the live sessions. In some online programs, you hardly get to interact with the teacher, if at all.
With this program, I WANT you to interact with me as much as possible. I'll give you many ways to do that.
What Students Say
Bob - UK
"I do like your teaching style. These are not just sweet words. You have a good combination of intensity in your delivery, interest in engaging all of your students... and a slightly self effacing humour."
Yves - Thailand
"I didn't think I would like online learning. But I have just finished our morning session and surprisingly I found out that I’ve missed some important points! So I am listening again...wonderful!"
Tessa - UK
" You make learning fun. You make it calm and collective. I never feel anxious or silly for asking questions and you invite a vulnerability to people that makes them more open to learning and seeing things from a different point of view by explaining them in ways we would understand."
Wendy - Australia
"What keeps me coming back is the quality of the class content. It is top quality and not airy fairy whimsical stuff."
