Wuji Hundun Instructor Certification Training Prerequisites:
This 5-Day intensive training is the only authorized Instructor Certification Program that is offered for instructors of the Wuji Hundun Qigong form passed down to Francesco Garri Garripoli from Master Duan Zhi Liang. Graduates will be certified for 2 years and the Training runs from early Wednesday through midday Sunday – participants are required to attend the complete Training. The intention for offering this Instructor Certification Program is to truly empower those with teaching skills who wish to share this effective Qigong form with others.
Prerequisites include at least two of the following:
1) You have already taught Qigong, Yoga, or one of the movement arts for at least two years and have the intention to add the Wuji Hundun Qigong form to your teaching offering.
2) You have a minimum of 150 hours of in-class training from a qualified Qigong, Tai Chi, or Yoga instructor, whether it was Francesco Garripoli, an NQA (National Qigong Association) certified teacher, or another professional healthcare instructor and/or have related training experience in the health and wellness field. Note: We will also take into consideration your time studying with DVDs, live or recorded online, and related training.
3) You have 2 or more years of clinical practice in the area of Qigong energy medicine, TCM/CCM clinical practice, or related subtle energy healing modalities such as Cranial Sacral, Reiki, or the like.
4) You have already attended classes, Study Trips or workshops with Francesco and/or, have proficiency in the Wuji Hundun Qigong (WHQ) form, and have had your WCQ Assessment reviewed and accepted by Francesco.
Those who would like to join this program for self-healing and personal growth with no present intention to teach may also apply to take this Course but understand you will not receive an Instructor’s Certificate, though a “Certificate of Completion” will be given for your attendance. This allows individuals who have diligently practiced this form to join and receive benefits without having to pass the practical and oral exam or the demonstration in front of the group as is required for the Instructor’s Certification. All hours logged from this workshop are recognized by the National Qigong Association (NQA) Certification Program, of which Francesco is Chairman Emeritus and has been a Senior Certification Committee Member since 2002.
“I always like to talk with applicants so that I can better understand their training and Heart as it’s not always about “numbers”. To me, Qigong “skill” is not so much about how well you know “technique” but more about intention and Heart-centeredness in the process. Form is important, yes, but connecting to the essence of the training and practice is quite important for me if I am going to commit to sharing these beautiful Qigong practices passed down to me by the Elders in China. I like to hear about any teaching that you’ve done – Qigong or otherwise – at any level. My intention is to empower the “instructor” in you, empower the confidence of spirit in you, to truly embody what it means to share Qigong with others for healing and personal transformation.”

Of course we know that some people are naturally gifted instructors and you may not meet all of the above requirements, so in those cases, we are open to listening and to having a discussion over the phone. Please contact Francesco to arrange this meeting. Thank you and good luck!
