Training Schedule

One of the most essential aspects of LifeForce: Tao of Medical Qigong is the traditional Medical Qigong training that participants receive when they live, study and practice with Grand Master Nan Lu.

March 1-10, 2019 — Medical Qigong Training – Ten-Day Intensive, Catskill, NY

Part of the curriculum involves ten days of intense energy practice in a beautifully conceived, natural setting in the Catskills. Away from the vibrations and distractions of urban environments, students can concentrate on building their energy foundation while connecting to nature and receiving its unconditional support. From the numerically powerful energy gate that opens to welcome the class, to the magnificent outdoor pyramid and bagua structures, to the 64 stepping stones of possibilities and opportunities, to the facility’s great rooms and hands-on kitchen, everything about this unique environment situated on 17 acres has been thoughtfully designed using feng shui to deliver the most profound energetic experience possible.
