East Meets West: Bridging the Gap

National Qigong Association

The National Qigong Association (NQA) will be holding their annual conference from June 14 to 16, at the Kahler Grand Hotel, in Rochester. The conference is open to the general public and all those interested in discovering or furthering their understanding of the ancient healing practice of qigong.

The NQA is the premier organization nationwide for networking and coordinating students, teachers, supporters and professionals. The weekend event will feature a powerful selection of informative workshops presented by leaders in the fields of qigong, Taiji Chuan and the Energetic Arts. The keynote speaker is Dr. Duke Samson, neurosurgeon and author of more than 150 scientific, peer-reviewed publications and textbooks. His presentation will incorporate the conference theme: Western and Chinese Medicine, with emphasis on the structure and function of the central nervous system, brain and spinal cord.

Chunyi Lin, an internationally recognized qigong teacher with a master’s degree in holistic healing, will be hosting a workshop on revolutionary techniques to activate one’s energy. The popular Tao Wow event traditionally held on Saturday evening will include qigong demonstrations and entertainment. Vendor representation and a silent auction will also take place during the conference.

Registration is available for the full conference with an option to participate in individual sessions or just one day. Military veterans receive 50 percent off the full conference.

Location: 20 2nd Ave. SW, Rochester. For more detailed information and to register, visit
