The Golden Elixir of Longevity and Immortality: The Qigong and Taiji Wellness System with Roger Jahnke
9:00 AM to 9:50 AM Pacific Time
The focus of this lecture is to reveal what ancient Chinese sages and medical practitioners understood and what conventional science is only realizing now – thousands of years later. Qigong and Taiji activate basic physiological mechanisms that are associated with the reduction of pathology – through self-regulatory mechanisms that neutralize the negative effects of oxidative and inflammatory processes. In the ancient world, these were associated with longevity – the capacity to extend the duration of wellbeing, and immortality – the process of sustaining a relationship with the quantum aspect of being wherein one is intimately connected with the aspect of oneself that is eternal.
