Sensing Qi

Sensing Qi guides you into a deeper relationship with your Qi. Being able to feel, or sense Qi, within yourself is the key to working with meridians and acupoints. Connecting with your own Qi results in greater ease for yourself, and better results for your clients.

What you will learn
(The Long Story)

Learn techniques that will open up new doors
and enhance your experiences.

For years, I've been asked: "How do I feel Qi?"
This course is my answer!

Sensing Qi provides you with a roadmap of techniques gathered from over 25 years of experience. Sensing Qi guides you along a personal journey of self-exploration, inner concentration, and Qi flow using simple Qi Gong practices.


You will walk away with confidence and greater vitality.
These first-hand, learning experiences can be applied to your professional bodywork and/or to deepen your own mind-body connection. Once you understand the subtleties of energy within yourself, your energetic work with others expands. Your ability to sense and connect with Qi is the key to getting better hands-on healing results with less effort.

Enjoy practices that you can do daily or just a couple of times per week. The more you practice, the easier it is for you to feel Qi in meridians, acupoints, and even your own system.

Learn how to leverage the potential of Qi in everything you do. You will find that you work easier, get better results, and enjoy more vitality within yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I complete it in less than 3 months?

Yes. When I created the course, it was intended to be completed over three months. As students have engaged with the exercises, some have gone more quickly, some more slowly - the pace is really up to you. As you experience Qi and practice the exercises, you will find the rhythm that is right for you.  

How much time should I dedicate to the class?

I suggest that you practice 3-4 times a week to get the most benefit. Your time will vary from 5 minutes to 25 minutes - it really depends on your schedule.  At first, more time is required to learn the logistics.  Many people continue to practice after they complete the program.

Can I review the material even after I complete the class?

Yes!  You will have on-going access to all of the videos and written content after completion. You can even download the videos to your own computer.

Is Sensing Qi the same as Shiatsu, Reiki, Acupressure, Healing Touch, etc?

The ability to Sense Qi is the skill common to all of these techniques.
In order to work with energy, regardless of the modality, one must first be able to sense/feel/connect with Qi. This class is intended to accentuate your work by increasing your direct experience with Qi, it is not a new method or technique.

Do you have videos for the course?

Yes. There are 13 videos showing you each exercise. You can download the videos onto your own device so that you can take them with you wherever you go!

Do you have written notes for the course?

Yes. You can download and print a complete set of notes to assist your learning process.

Will I get a certificate of completion?

Yes. After you complete the course and pass the final exam, your certificate will be ready for you in your student account. You can download and print it out at any time.
