The Five Healths


Change yourself, change your life
Promoting the Five Healths with Dr Mao Shing Ni
A 30 hour immersion, July 27 - 30, 2017 in Geneva
(CEU - ASCA certified)
The balanced growth of the roots, trunk, branches, leaves and flowers of a tree expresses the value of integral development. In this seminar, we apply principles of balance to our physical, financial, mental, ethical and spiritual health. We learn guidelines, practical tools and special practices that can be applied daily to improve ourselves in each of the five branches of our total health. This is an introduction to the Path of Constructive Life, an adaptation of ancient natural teaching that provides a step-by-step process of discovery, construction and cultivation of human capability (For all the workshop details, see: Change yourself, change your life & learn more about the Five Healths).




You arranged a very well diversified weekend.
It was a great experience. - SP

Nature as Teacher

Nature as Teacher – Natural energy is continuously present in our lives. In this workshop, we learn Qigong meditative techniques that helps us to draw support from the energy of our surroundings, such as the sun, the mountains, flowers, a tree, or a lake. Each of these natural elements has a personality or energy quality that we can learn from. Experiencing this energy directly, Nature becomes our personal teacher and we tap into a clean, free, and sustainable energy grid (see also Principles / Natural Law & Qigong Classes / Meditation).
