Would you believe that the human body is capable of generating its own medicine—and that such medicine can help you live longer? Ancient Chinese healers believed our bodies could produce a “Golden Elixir” that promised longevity — and even immortality!

On April 17, members of the Fielding community are invited to a workshop exploring these ideas at the beautiful Huntington Library in San Marino, California (Los Angeles area).

In conjunction with our Creative Longevity and Wisdom concentration, the workshop is being presented by Fielding Faculty Fellow Dr. Roger Jahnke, OMD.

A researcher, author, and doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Jahnke has 40 years of clinical practice and expertise in Chinese healing traditions, is director and lead trainer at the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, and is the author of The Healer Within: Using Traditional Chinese Techniques to Release Your Body’s Own Medicine.

Workshop participants will learn about the ancient origins of the “medicine within” and how it relates to modern scientific understanding of DNA regeneration, brain plasticity, breath practice, and more.  

The workshop takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 17. The cost is $10 for admission to the Huntington Library, which includes all-day admission; the spectacular Huntington gardens open at 8:30 a.m. Parking is free. RSVP at this Eventbrite link by April 12.

We hope you’ll join us!
