When people encounter a symptom (chronic pain, for example) they habitually tend to focus their attention on the feeling of suffering, perceiving their symptom as a problem, or an energy block. Qi Dao teaches to shift attention from the block to the flow of energy streaming somewhere around the block, just like water flowing around an obstacle in its way. Qi Dao students learn to accept every single experience as a lesson, rather than a problem. They are coached to explore the process of manifesting the dream of being healthy and pain free for each and every part of the human being. This process has to do with resolving the inner question: “If I were dreaming about having pain like this, what would be the meaning of such a dream?” This empowers the students to learn to integrate all the parts of the body, mind and spirit in order to embody vibrant health and wellness.
As they receive Qi Dao Coaching, the students get the benefit of harmonizing their personalities, which affects their relationships with themselves as well as the world around them. This far-reaching holistic tradition not only addresses the issues on the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels, but also balances all these levels. It allows the students to break through the lifetime of their old habits and programmed patterns of behavior and body awareness. It offers profound experiences in dynamic meditation and creative visualization, promoting deep peace and receptivity to the inner guidance. Awakening the healer within them, Qi Dao Coaching empowers them to transform the very sources of their somatic as well as psychosomatic issues in order to resolve them. Promoting holistic and natural living, Qi Dao is well poised to become a revolutionary method for experiencing and exploring the qualities of human consciousness that are usually dormant in the conditions of modern life.
