Forty-five years ago, President Richard Nixon declared war on cancer, but cancer is still deadly today even with chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, precision medicine, and other methods. In June at the cancer research “moonshot” summit in Washington D.C, Vice President Joe Biden made a remark that more than 1.6 million new cases of cancer would be diagnosed by the end of this year, and about 600,000 Americans would die from the disease in the next six months. We are glad to see that the 17th World Congress on Qigong, Tai Chi, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) on Sept. 2-5 in San Francisco, CA, will have a rich program to combat cancer.
Tai Chi, Qigong, and TCM have been proven to have positive results for cancer prevention, treatment, and recovery. Well-researched and clinically proven to cure cancer, Guo Lin Cancer Qigong will be taught by a team of five experts from China. Kevin Chen, PhD, professor of Medical School of Maryland University will teach TCM Qigong and self-healing for cancer recovery. Dr. Wang Yan from Holland will offer medical Qigong training for cancer prevention and therapy. Pete Griffin, PhD, of American Metarobic Institute, will present evidence that Tai Chi/Qigong can help cancer patients. Dr. Caroline Cai of TCM in the U.K. will impart her expertise in the treatment of cancer patients in her address of the history and outlook of medical Qigong. By and large, many Qigong/Tai Chi styles/forms have been researched and found to have positive effects on the health of cancer survivors. American Tai Chi/Qigong Sifus Lama Tantrapa, Violet Li, Dr. Effie Chow, Alex Feng, Cathy Mu, Lee Holden, Dr. Linda Hole, Lewis Regen, and Candice Regen, Nepali Animesh Lal Shrestha, Tunisian Master Arial Ondous Betti, and Japanese Dr. Liu Chao will teach diverse forms of Tai Chi/Qigong for health. There are multiple workshops offered simultaneously. Beginners and advanced practitioners all can find suitable topics to learn.
The four-day World Congress will include major speeches delivered by masters/grandmasters and experts: Dr. Linda Hole and Nigel Butler of the U.S. on “Practical Qi from Surfing to Spiritual”, Master Cathy Mu of the U.S. on “How to Master Your Health, Beauty, and Happiness” and “Dancing Qigong”, Dr. Wang Yan of the U.K. on “Medical Qigong for Obesity, Smoking Cessation, and Cancer Prevention”, Jane Sibbett of the U.S. on “Jane’s Dancing Hands”, Ken Rochon & Linda Hole of the U.S. on “Amplifying Qi Online for Your Dreams, Wealth, and Success”, Dr. Liu Chao of Japan on “The Six Sounds Qigong”, Crystal Chu Rimpoche of the U.S. on “Black Sect Buddhism Feng Shui”, Siddhartha Lam Tamang and Animesh Lal Shrestha of Nepal on “Wuma Qigong”, John Mattison of the U.S. on “Evolving Science of the Healing Power of Touch”, and Marisa Vocca of Italy on “Qigong for a better World”.
The healing sessions will consist of American Dr. Effie Chow’s “Distance Healing”, Dr. Terry Shintani’s “The Peace Diet”, Dr. Kevin Chen’s “TCM Qigong & Self-Healing for Cancer Recovery”, Sifu Alex Feng’s “I am a Seaweed Qigong”, Dr. Anita Marshall’s “Herb and Drug Interaction”, and Dr. May Loo’s “Gastrointestinal Symptoms of Infants East and West”, and German Dr. Uwe Albrecht’s “The Qi in Modern Energy Medicine”.
One important feature of the World Congress is the Scientific Symposium. This year Shin Lin, PhD, of University of California – Irvine, is hosting the event. His keynote speech “New Breakroughs! ‘Energy’ in different forms, including biophotons, DC electric field, electrical current, physical force/energy or jing” has already generated much interest. American Gaetan Chevalier, PhD, will discuss “Devices for Bio-Energy Measurement & Characterization”. American Dr. Beverly Rubik, PhD, will report “Physical Light Measured During Energy Healing Sessions under Controlled Conditions in the Laboratory”. American C P Ong, PhD, will present “Generating Inner Strength (Neijin)”.
