What we're about

"Tai Chi Easy™ is a carefully developed method and approach to Tai Chi and Qi (Chi) Cultivation that makes it easy, beneficial and fun from the very beginning.The student does not have to devote years to learning the traditional 108 movement form or even the shortened (24, 36, 42 movement) form to enjoy the calming emotional and health benefits of Tai Chi (Taiji).

"Tai Chi Easy is not “just” an exercise program that uses gentle activities to help increase joint flexibility and range of motion and to help maintain muscle strength. As a practice of “meditation in motion,” the slow movements and mindset of Tai Chi can be used to manage stress levels by creating a sense of choice and a heightened awareness of our capacities to mobilize the motivation, cognitive resources, and courses of action in every movement. (Courtesy Tai Chi Easy)

TAI CHI EASY/QIGONG group practice sessions are not taxing. They are not hard to follow. They call for a great deal of individual expression and do not demand any more than we can give. They are surprisingly fun, liberating and calming. Qigong is one of the pillars of Chinese Medicine and Dan’s approach helps people discover the latent power of self-healing.

Dan Weicher holds certification for teaching Qigong and Tai Chi from the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi and The Omega Institute In Rhinebeck, NY where he helped develop and teach Integral Energetics with Dr. Roger Jahnke, OMD.

Dan is also Vice President of the Healer Within Foundation, an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Santa Barbara, California whose mission is to empower individuals, groups, families, and communities, in the U.S. and internationally, in their quest for greater health, wellness, productivity, and purposeful living. He has over 3,000 hours of work, therapy, school and training in Qigong, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Mentoring at Mental Health Facilities, Hospitals, Energy Medicine, teaching and contributing to Protocols of other healers.

Dan is a practitioner of Wellness/Medical Qigong at BuShen Healing and Life Arts in Bedford Hills, New York www.bushenhealing.com. As a Qi Healer, Dan helps people reach areas not readily palpable or conditions that may not have responded to other therapies. His ability to sense and move energies, deep personal practice and long apprenticeships empower him to help people learn to turn on their own “Healer Within”.

Recovering The Way: A fusion of Qigong, Western Medicinal Theory and 12-Step

I'm Dan Weicher, developer of Recovering the Way, which is a fusion of qigong, the Scientific Method and 12-step.

Some time after coming into a 12 step program I met with Dr. Roger Jahnke OMD of The Institute Of Integral Qigong, It started a long and deep learning experience of integrating the principles of Internal Alchemy into my life. I realized pretty soon that the 12-step paradigm was also one of Alchemy, and the two of them worked well together.

You might be saying, “That’s really nice for you, Dan, but I'm not interested in meditation", or "That’s really nice for you, Dan, I don't need a program for addiction" Bu there's a new pathology in the world now now that tis coming directly at us. And I don’t just mean the pandemic of the COVID virus. I'm talking about, if you a virus of freneticism that has overtaken us like a tsunami.

We all have addictive tendencies, and just like gene expression, certain environmental phenomena can bring to surface the dis-ease. And it’s nearly impossible for us to avoid the effects of the new world of electronic phenomena and it is laying bare the compulsive, addictive parts of our personalities. Where people may not have considered themselves dependent, it’s being laid bare now for us.

So, why this fusion? Just as Chinese medicine is a paradigm for healing and Western medicine is a paradigm for healing, the 12-Step process is a paradigm for healing. The fusion of the paradigms is how I healed and it can work for you too.

I've seen in recovery circles that there are many people who have come to grips with a lot of their pressing issues but they're still very rife and tense, as if the body won't stop being in a state of excitation.

I've also seen many people come into yoga or meditation class expecting for the addictive or compulsive part of their personality to abate and subside. It doesn’t necessarily always work.

Recovering The Way is advantageous for those people who might be looking to see how they can integrate themselves better into today’s life.

The practice is in the format of a Qigong Class, incorporating parts of the Tai Chi Easy program and Integral Qigong. No experience is necessary, it is pleasing, almost effortless and can be done seated, standing or just listening. Seasoned practitioners and novices each find it beneficial. We have amongst us Physicians, Scientists, Doctors of Oriental Medicine, Teachers and people from all walks of life and all ages. It is easy seamless and graspable to just about anybody.

We bring into the body aspects of mind that allude us and visa versa. By integrating simplified Qigong (gentle movement, breath regulation, meditation and self massage), with simplified Recovery principles (self awareness of conduct and thought) we attain a level of internal harmony that may surprise us. This is all done under the backdrop a simple understanding of the most modern aspects of human physiology. In lay terms we are given valuable information on how the brain, the blood and or bodies interact.
