What we're about

We recognize that "health" is far more than absence of disease, and we enthusiastically optimize our wellness in each area of our lives. To this end, we meet to learn about, practice, and support each other in activating the seven spokes of the Slow Medicine Wheel of Health: the physical (play tennis, practice yoga), the mental-emotional (recite positive affirmations, practice guided imagery), our relationship to others (go out with friends for dinner, play games with our kids), our relationship to the natural world (hike through a forest, watch birds in a park), our community (shop at a farmers' market, help build a community garden), our relationship to the Divine (attend services at a local spiritual center, pray with our loved ones), our life’s purpose work (teach children, volunteer at a homeless shelter). We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds who are curious about or committed to living a healthy and harmonious life, and we look forward to meeting you!

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.

Sometime 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 Qigong and Internal Alchemy into my life. I realized that the 12-step paradigm was also one of Alchemy, and the two of them worked well together.

You might say “That’s nice for you, Dan, but I'm not interested in meditation", or "That’s nice for you, Dan, I don't need a program for addiction". There's a new pathology in the world now that is coming directly at us. And I don’t just mean the pandemic of the COVID virus. I'm talking about the 'virus' of instant electronic 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 disease and it is nearly impossible for us to avoid the effects of the new world of electronic phenomena. It is preying on the compulsive, addictive parts of our personalities. So, 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. It evolved over 20 years and I can share the benefits of it with you now.

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 vice 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.
