Karen Keyes, MMQ
Karen Keyes has been practicing Medical Qi Gong (considered the oldest therapeutic mode of Chinese Medicine) since 2010. She received her certificate of Masters of Medical Qi Gong from Empty Mountain Institute of Medical Qi Gong; taught by Prof. Wendy Lang and with usage of Prof. Jerry Alan Johnson’s “Chinese Medical Qi Gong therapy” books, volumes 1 thru 5. She presently works out of the BG Acupuncture clinic in Burnaby.
She has practiced Buddhism meditation since teenage, has a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Specific Learning Development. She has fostered a ‘lifelong learner’ route and now is focused on Channeling, Taoism and Focused Intentional Healing. Her background has directed her to view a healthy lifestyle or a return to a healthy state as requiring: 1. Treating the client as a whole, 2. Addressing the root cause of symptoms of dis-ease, and 3. Empowering the client to be the healthiest Being they can be.
Jacob began his training in Qi Gong and the world of energetic arts in 1982, studying with Grandmaster Tchoung Ta-tchen and Dr Danica Beggs in Vancouver, BC. He studied western astrology, hermetics, ceremonial magic, I-ching, herbalism, organic farming, Castenada shamanism, Discordianism, acupressure, TCM and other systems. He has studied Medical Qi Gong with the International Institute of Medical Qi Gong and Shamanic Qi Gong with the Empty Mountain Institute.
He loves to share his knowledge of Qi Gong at his moving meditation classes and private coaching sessions in the Vancouver area. His healing touch and intuitive connection to the energetic flow come to bear in his one-on-one therapeutic sessions.
