"Practicing Awaken Qigong activates the body's external and internal energies, thereby awakening the energy healer within." - Dr. Dean Telano
"Awaken Qigong is a natural way to achieve vibrant health by awakening your self-healing ability, and nourishing the body, mind and spirit. Its core teaching reminds us that we are the very best doctors of own soul, and the best medicine to take is, self-love." - Dr. Dean Telano
"Qi" or "Chi" (pronounced chee) means energy and is the vital force of life in the Universe. Chi pervades the cosmos, stars, planets and nature, and animates all aspects of life. "Gong” (pronounced gung) is often translated as cultivating, but definitions may include skill or achievement that is accomplished through practice and discipline. Therefore, "Qigong" is the practice of working with energy with the intention of balancing, strengthening and healing the vital life-force in our body.
As we develop our own external and internal energy, we inherently form a powerful link to the greater parts of ourselves. Awaken Qigong stimulates or directs the flow Chi of the body and organs by stretching or compressing the meridians (energy channels). Each Awaken Qigong sequence includes breath work and mudras, as well as the inner work of sound, color and visualization at the consciousness level. The synthesis of Awaken Qigong's unique movement, breath work, visualization, and sound "wakes up" and channels the Chi within the body to heal the physical, mental, emotional, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
An Awaken Qigong Class Consists of Five Parts.
Medical Qigong: Medical Qigong is one of the core forms of medical treatment in Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, herbal remedies, and Tui Na (massage). Medical Qigong combines the use of physical movements with breathwork, awareness, creative visualization, and intention. Medical Qigong focuses on clearing energy blockages, eliminating toxic or stagnant energies, increasing vibrational energy and promoting holistic health.
Awaken Qigong with Taiji Ruler or Dragon Stick: This is a rarely taught form of Qigong, and considered a true jewel of Chinese Taoist Alchemy. The movement patterns are specifically designed to enhance the flow of Qi and balance it throughout the body, imparting good health, lots of energy, and longevity. Practicing Qigong with the Taiji Ruler or Dragon Stick can be used for self-healing; holistic fitness; and internal energy support for anyone involved in the healing field, movement arts, bodywork, yoga or martial arts.
Crystal Awaken Qigong: Crystal Awaken Qigong Classes, designed by Dr. Dean Telano, utilizes specific crystals with particular qigong movements, focal points, sequences and breathing techniques to achieve intended healing outcomes.
Walking Qigong Meditation: Walking meditation is a powerful form of meditation and has been used to remedy many chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, rheumatism, hepatitis, allergies, heart disease, as well as to significantly reduce negative effects caused by chemotherapy, radiation, and medication.
Healing Sounds Awaken Qigong: These specific sounds are often combined with body movement, hand gestures, visualization and focused intent. By using associated sounds, stale, congested qi can be expelled from the affected organ and be replaced with fresh, clear qi. The healing sounds also boost the immune system; move congested energy; cleanse the body of physical toxic energies; transform stuck emotional energy; increase vibrational energy; and promote general well being.
