Wisdom Healing Qigong Professional Training Program – Teacher Training and Healers' Program

Deepen your healing capacities … Fulfill your life purpose ... Share your gifts with others

One of the best ways to accelerate your own growth and healing is to share your gifts and passion for healing with others. Our Professional Training Program offers such a deep opportunity for service – through learning, and learning to share the theory and practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong (WHQ).

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.

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 capacities.

The practices, principles and philosophy of Wisdom Healing Qigong are taught through a dynamic online curriculum with both live and pre-recorded teachings from Master Mingtong Gu, supplemental written, audio and video materials, experiential projects, practicum assignments, chi buddy discussions and assessments. Our entire Certification program is designed to transmit this ancient wisdom tradition with state-of-art online learning technology.


“The Professional Training Program has been invaluable for me. Dropping deeper into the theory and practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong has enriched my own practice and understanding of the mystery and magnificence of chi. Being able to share these powerful practices and teachings with others in ways that truly inspire and benefit them also generates a deep well of joy, both for them and for me. What could be more satisfying and fulfilling than to help others heal their lives, connect with essence and find lasting joy?”
~ Susan Drouilhet, WHQ Level 2 Instructor

    6. What is the time commitment for this intensive program?

    • Qigong for Life Courses: One to two hour of daily practice and study.

    7. What is the practice commitment requirement?

They will learn from Mingtong and get the added benefit of studying with you. You will help answer the students questions, encourage their practice and share experiences. You will not be teaching, you will be facilitating and enhancing the students taking the course from Mingtong. This will give you an easy way to gain confidence and experience.

    10. When can I begin teaching and charging students?

    Your practicum Practice Group is free for those who participate. After the Professional Certification Retreat, you can teach the Awaken Vitality Practices.
