COURSE DESCRIPTION:
The Six Healing Sounds Sitting Meditation is a simple and effective ancient Chinese Qigong sequence of sounds and postures designed to balance and transmute chronic negative emotions and their physiological effects. The practice consists of organ-specific frequencies and postures related to the five Yin organs and the Triple Warmer. When practiced regularly, these sounds and postures move stagnant Qi trapped as heat in the fascia of the organs, cool the organs, promote the flow of Qi and, thus, enhance health, a sense of well-being, and support appropriate emotional responsiveness.

In this webinar, students will:

- Learn the ​t​heory of how emotional energies are trapped in the fascia surrounding organs as excess heat and how sound can release this trapped energy to facilitate internal harmony, stress reduction, decrease/prevent illness, promote resilience

- Review the Yin organ anatomy and location (Spleen, Lungs, Kidneys, Heart, Liver, and Triple Burner​);​

- Learn and practice the six (6) organ-specific postures​;​

- Learn and practice the six (6) organ-specific sounds or vibrations​;​

- Learn and practice the Resting State posture which facilitates the transmutation of the organs’ energy state​;​

- Learn the relationship between the organs and the seasons to practice the sequence optimally​;​

- Learn the ideal time to practice on a daily basis​.​

Participants will receive a handout booklet describing all of the above as well as a summary reference chart.

INTRUCTOR BIO:
Dr. Robert J. Woodbine is a retired licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND). He earned his naturopathic medical degree in 1996 from the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (known now as the National University of Natural Medicine) in Portland, Oregon. While no longer in active clinical practice, he maintains his New York State Acupuncture License (L.Ac.). He earned his Master of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (M.Ac.O.M.) degree in 1999 from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine also in Portland, Oregon.

His interest in the healing arts was influenced by his grandmother who was a midwife and herbalist, his mother who was a seer, and his father who was a respected healer in Harlem and the person who taught him Foot Reflexology while a teenager.

Dr. Woodbine began studying, practicing and teaching Qigong and Taijiquan in 1985 with Master Mantak Chia. Since then he has studied with various well-known teachers. Most recently, he successfully completed a three-year training program in Qigong and Taijiquan with Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming in Northern California. Having returned to Harlem in July 2019, he founded Urban Qi FIT (www.urbanqifit.com) dedicated to preserving and teaching indigenous healing arts to cultivate self-reliance and resilience.

Dr. Woodbine is a writer and published author. He co-authored the novel Sun Chasers with Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming, wrote a Foreward for The Dao De Jing: A Qigong Interpretation, and was published in Kung Fu Magazine. He was a member of Sonia Sanchez’s Black Writers Workshop at the Countee Cullen Library in the early 1970’s and is a member of the historic Harlem Writers Guild.
