The Return of Teacher Training
After listening to your feedback through the survey and the lively discussion at recent Zhineng Qigong Conference in London, we’ve redesigned our training and are excited to announce a new, more modular approach.
What we found was that there was a need to allow people to go more deeply into the practice before they took the decision to teach. There was also a need to offer more entry points to the training so that we can help a wider range of practitioners and teachers develop the skills to teach in the UK. The model that we’ve come up with is based on three main modules:
A series of self-cultivation weekends that enable you to go more deeply into the methods, theory and applications of Zhineng Qigong for your own purposes. Before you even make the decision of whether or not to teach, it’s important that you know what it is that you’re working with at a deeper level. Classes and beginners workshops only take you so far, the Self-Cultivation weekends take you more deeply into the practice to expose the true potential of Zhineng Qigong.
We still believe that it’s highly important to spend time learning from teachers who are as close to the source of this practice as possible. To make this possible, every year we endeavour to invite great teachers over from China in order to host retreats and take to closer to the authentic core of the practice of Zhineng Qigong.
Once you’ve explored the practice of Zhineng Qigong through Self-Cultivation and retreat work, you will be more familiar with the power of Intention and Stillness. You’ll also have a greater understanding of the importance of combining Method, Theory and Application and at this point, you can choose to look at sharing this understanding with others.
Starting in the Autumn of 2018, the Teacher Training module draws on the Three Monkeys’ combined experienced of teaching Zhineng Qigong in a western culture and provides you with the insight, material and support you need to become a highly effective teacher of Zhineng Qigong in the UK.
As a teacher of Zhineng Qigong, it’s important that you keep on learning and developing. We will continue to offer relevant training to help you on your journey after your accredited as a teacher through 3 Monkeys and through your connection with other practitioners and teachers in the wider Zhineng Qigong community we will invite you to share your knowledge and experience with others to allow this powerful system of Qigong to continue to grow in the UK and beyond..
