    Qigong for Health and Happiness Workshop

    in Health

    This show explores Qigong as a primary strategy for healing Parkinson's. Wisdom Healing Qigong (WHQ) is a particular form of the ancient Chinese spiritual practice that focuses on personal health and wellbeing, blending essential ancient teachings into one gentle practice of movement, visualization, chanting and meditation. Compatible with traditional Chinese and modern western medicine, it fits all abilities and is very effective for chronic and acute health conditions.

    Joining me on the show is my special guest Bill Bulick who has been practicing Wisdom Healing Qigong daily for almost 4 years. He was originally inspired by the story of Bianca Molle, who reversed her Parkinson's symptoms through this practice, and by the extraordinary teaching of Master MIngtong Gu. Bill has been a devoted student of Mingtong's  since 2011, has attended six 10 day retreats, has increased his practice to 2-4 hours and is now in the WHQ Teacher Training Program. 

    Master Mingtong Gu, is making his only trip to Portland this year to teach a workshop on Sunday, June 21, 2- 8:30 pm at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM). For more information and to register:

The Center hosts experiential retreats with a focus on Qigong, Taoist Sciences and Food Healing; and provides participants with a rare and powerful opportunity to connect, live, serve and learn from the local community.  A portion of the Center’s profits is dedicated to preserving and promoting indigenous wisdom in under served communities locally and internationally. Southern Cloud Retreat Centre is still under development but is already hosting small and large retreat groups annually.
