Welcome to the Professional Training Program (PTP)

Deepen your healing capacities … Share your gifts with others

Accelerate your growth and healing while learning to share your gifts and passion for healing with others. Our Professional Training Program (PTP) offers a deep opportunity for service – through learning, and learning to share the theory and practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong (WHQ).

Effective as a stand-alone healing technology, Wisdom Healing Qigong also complements and enriches other healing modalities. Whether you're an aspiring Qigong instructor, energy healer, acupuncturist, massage therapist, psychotherapist or medical specialist our Professional Training Program delivers the knowledge and skills to effectively convey the art and technology of full spectrum energy healing.

The program is also beneficial to individuals who want to support others in healing from challenging diseases, acute stress or those wanting a proven preventative, health-enhancing tool. Your sharing can empower many to reconnect the mind, body and heart for ultimate health and well being. As a Wisdom Healing Qigong professional you are offering more than just a series of new mind-body practices - you are activating a full shift into a new healing paradigm.

There are two training pathways you can choose: teaching or healing. Many students opt for both. Both tracks integrate the heart of Wisdom Healing Qigong – providing essential practices and tools for energetic healing and introducing the catalysts for holistic self-transformation.

Healing of Self is an essential foundation for the healing of others. First we discover how to internally generate a Qigong state and then we invite this embodied presence into our daily lives, as we prepare to respectfully and joyfully share it with others.

All aspiring professionals enter the program through the same wisdom gates. Whether you intend to teach classes, cultivate your natural healing abilities and/or augment your private practice with the benefits of Qigong, the Professional Training Program curriculum is designed to amplify your innate healing capacities. This is true whether you are experienced in working with healing energy or are exploring your gifts for the very first time. 

The principles and philosophy of WHQ, and its experiential methods to facilitate true healing, are transmitted through the foundational courses offered through our First Year Professionals course.

"This year’s Healer's retreat attracted a group of deeply caring activists who are inspired to introduce qigong to their healing practices. At a time when so many individuals in need of support are being left behind by the current expressions of allopathic care, working with energy opens up a whole new horizon. The growth of self-trust was palpable amidst the sharing of our collective wisdom, as Mingtong guided us through daily sessions working with the chi field and accessing universal energy to heal ourselves and others..."
