Join Dr James Leary and Wah! on a four-day journey to learn self-healing and Qi healing protocols*. Their combined experience in healing and yoga spans 60 years, with Dr Leary successfully helping people worldwide to change emotional and cellular patterns.

Life energy or Qi is something that can be cultivated and renewed in the body. It can heal injuries, eradicate illness, correct imbalances, and restore harmony to the system. Your mind, thoughts, emotions and physical conditions are interconnected. Life Qi Renewal is a protocol developed by James Leary, DOM, PhD through 50 years of study and mastery of many methodologies of healing. Imbalances in the body are traced back to the root cause. Old emotional beliefs and behavioral patterns that no longer support your current dreams and aspirations are released through combining breath awareness with the Qi of the practitioner while administering healing protocols.

Dr Leary is a doctor of Oriental Medicine and PhD of Behavioral Psychology. He combines the protocols and wisdom of both methodologies with intuition, compassion and resolution, helping you let go of old patterns that no longer serve your highest expression of life.

Wah! has been working in the field of personal development for over 25 years and has published books on yoga and healing. She has lectured at Princeton University, CU Boulder, Loyola Marymount University, and performed with Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer and has been co-teaching this retreat with Dr Leary for 3 years.

During the four-day retreat, Wah! will lead you in self-healing practices from yoga, meditation and Ayurveda in the morning and in the afternoon Dr. Leary will lecture, teach and provide demonstrations for breathwork, Qi cupping, and energy reading and release. You will learn and practice specific protocols each afternoon in partners or small groups.

Rest, renew and reset your routine!

Items to bring: Comfortable clothing for movement…and your willingness to learn and be open to new ideas and practices!

*Qi healing protocols include techniques of muscle manipulation, visceral manipulation, self-regulation, nutritional education, energetic point therapies, applied kinesiology, permissions, Taoist hand cupping, tapping, meridian stimulation, and facilitating Qi movement through the breath.
