ongoing education

ONGOING Education right now in Europe

CORE TRAINING: 
This 3 modules are taught with approximate 2 month breath of separation. In that time, is highly recommended to assist to any of the ongoing study groups to better grasp the new skills and be ready for the next module. 
The core training is sequential, if you haven't ever done this training you'll have to take them in sequence. Once you have completed the 3 modules, you can repeat any of them separately if you wish to revisit any topic.

In this 3 module series we present the core skills of the Engaging Vitality repertoire:
Module I

Listening skills you'll learn:
 Shape or Qi: Direct palpatory experience of Qi. Learn about its normal and pathological qualities. Learn to listen and facilitate the conditions to the state of dynamic stillness, where the natural healing capacities take charge.
This is the first gateway that will lead you out of your head and into your hands.  
Shape of Qi needling: brief introduction to a way of needling consistent with the state of Qi we're trying to facilitate.
Manual Thermal Evaluation: active points and areas give off a thermal signal, train your hands to feel it precisely. A tremendously helpful tool in point selection, even if you follow protocols, now you'll know when a point is active or not (and if it makes sense to needle it or not!), also will help you track when is time to remove your needles. Excellent tool to help you prevent overdose.
Manual thermal evaluation is also used to evaluate the vitality of the 3 burners, giving you a sense of the overall state of your patient and immediate feedback about your needling technique.
Yang Rhythm: Palpatory experience for the yang qi in the body. Learn to identify normal and pathological qualities. Use as feedback for effective needling. Effective measure to prevent overdose.
Local listening: Learn to feel the place(s) where Qi is not open, the local restriction where everything organizes around.

Instructors: Local instructors from the European Crew (Germany, Holland, Spain) or Marguerite Dinkins (USA).
Teaching Assistants: 2-4 depending on the size of the group
Days of training: 2


Module II
Listening skills you'll learn:
Global listening: After being exposed to Local Listening, now learn to feel the least open place from a global perspective. A quick way to get you to the least open place where you can start the conversation with your patient's presentation in the present moment. Global Listening will take you to Local Listening in seconds. It'll help you bypass the apparent conceptual contradictions by taking you to the place where Qi's flow is restricted and disturbed.
Channel listening: Learn to feel the channels as a whole, start exploring their qualities and the experience of openness or blockage.
Channel listening to local listening: learn to feel the connection among a local listening and a singular channel, identify the distinct hallmark and work with this information to get to a profound and gentle resolution.
Refine Needling: Learn to accurately locate the point and the depth of insertion by refining the quality of your contact and attention.

Instructors: Dan Bensky (USA)
Teaching Assistants: 2-4 depending on the size of the group.   
Days of training: 2

Module III 
 Listening skills you'll learn:
Yin Rhythm: After being exposed to the Shape of Qi and the Yang Rhythm, you'll be ready to engage a deeper rhythm, the Yin Rhythm. You'll learn to palpate the rhythm (yin tide, or yin rhythm) and the state (the fluid body). With this you'll have the gateway to a deeper state of dynamic stillness, and access to the palpatory experience of all fluids in the body, including Xue, JinYe, Dampness... you'll be able to feel under your hands yin deficiency as different experience than damp-heat or blood stasis.
Extraordinary Vessels: Closely related to the fluid body, the Extraordinary Vessels give us a means to engage with the deeper state of dynamic stillness and Yuan Qi.
Shape of Qi needling: Now with a better grasp of the Shape of Qi, this technique is presented in depth and practiced in all practice sets. The goal is to facilitate the engagement with Qi and be able to effectively work with the dynamic.

In this final module, you'll review all the topics you've been exposed to in the 3 modules.

Instructors: Charles Chace (USA)
Teaching Assistants: 2-4 depending on the size of the group.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL CLASS

Module IV: Ignition and Integration
This module is not sequential. As long as you have completed the core training, you can take this class when ever you want.

In this module Chip expands the work on the fluid body, and also pays special attention on resolving issues of how each one of the participants could integrate the Engaging Vitality repertoire into their own existing toolbox.
Instructors: Charles Chace (USA)
Teaching Assistants: 2-4 depending on the size of the group.
Days of training: 2




Module V: The Cranium and Cranial Sutures

This module is not sequential. As long as you have completed the core training, you can take this class when ever you want.

In this module Dan takes the quality of touch one step further, and brings one very delicate listening post into play: the cranium.
In this class you'll learn to feel the restrictions and pathological patterns affecting the cranium. You'll start working with areas of interface, the sutures.
You'll explore how to use this information in clinical practice, and to reboost the system. 
Instructors: Dan Bensky (USA)
Teaching Assistants: 2-4 depending on the size of the group.
Days of training: 2

YEARLY FOLLOW UP CLASS

Yearly Follow Up Class in BARCELONA
This class is not sequential. As long as you have completed the core training you are welcome to attend.

If you train with Engaging Vitality, you'll have the opportunity to get continuous education on a regular basis. You'll have a place to turn to on a yearly basis, a unique opportunity to continue a training throughout the years and get feedback from one of the main developers, Chip Chace. 
...Engaging Vitality training is not just a 3 module series, plus a bunch of seminars, it's a space to grow a way to engage, a space where you'll have support and feedback to develop the best of you, if you want to.

Coaching this class: Ferdinand Beck & Rayén Antón
Days of training: 2


STUDY GROUPS
Munich - Barcelona - Holland
Every month, or every other month, we have local study groups gatherings in different cities around Europe.
The goal of these groups is to practice and exchange experiences among colleagues who have been working with the Engaging Vitality approach in a varying range of time, from months to years. An open space to communicate and refine, engage and be inspired by peers and folks walking the same path.
Groups are coordinated by Ferdinand Beck (Munich), Felix De Haas (Holland) and Rayén Antón (Barcelona).
Hours of training: Depending on the group. For more info check our events list on Facebook page HERE
