You will learn Yi Ren Medical Qigong practices for activating and cultivating the internal organ energy pathways, such as the heart and small intestine energy pathway, and the kidney and bladder energy pathway. The development of these pathways is necessary for greater coherent communication within the body at the Qi-subtle energy level. In addition, you will explore five-element and meridian theories of Qigong therapy. You will also gain an experiential understanding of the functions of the internal organs at the Qi-subtle energy level, as well as the relationships between emotions and their corresponding internal organs.
Upon completion of the course you will be able to:
- Explain five-element theory and the meridian theory of Qigong therapy
- Demonstrate Yi Ren Medical Qigong methods for cultivating heart and small intestine energy pathways, liver and gall-bladder energy pathways, lungs and large intestine energy pathways, and kidneys and urinary bladder energy pathways
- Demonstrate Yi Ren Medical Qigong methods for cultivating stomach and pancreas energy pathways, and lymphatic and reproductive system energy pathways
- Demonstrate internal organ balance and harmony exercises
- Explain the theory and principles for energetic and emotional management

Guan-Cheng Sun, PhD, is the core instructor of the program. He is the developer of Yi Ren Medical Qigong and founder of the Institute of Qigong & Integrative Medicine in Seattle. Dr. Sun earned his PhD in molecular genetics from the Graduate University for Advanced Studies in Japan in 1993.
Dr. Sun is also a Qigong teacher with over 35 years of practice in a program which he began learning at the age of nine from his grand-uncle in China. Dr. Sun's Yi Ren system of medical Qigong allows a person to develop internal energy right away, so that one’s own internal energy system activation and cultivation promotes the prevention and healing of chronic illnesses. Dr. Sun’s understanding of modern molecular genetics and scientific principles, as well as his experience with internal energy cultivation, allows him to create a unique bridge between cultures.
One of Dr. Sun’s contributions as a Qigong therapist and instructor is his ability to communicate with individuals at the subtle energy level and to transmit healing energy to others. He has developed specific Qigong healing methods for Type 2 diabetes, chronic lower back pain, arthritis, and other common health concerns.
Dr. Sun is currently engaged in mind-body medicine and energy medicine research at Bastyr University, as well as teaching Qigong academic classes at the university. He is also the author of Yi Ren Medical Qigong - A Guide to a Better-Functioning Body and a Peaceful Mind, and Yi Ren Medical Qigong Manuals I, II, III, IV, V and VI.
