FEEL FREE TO HIT REPLY and RESPOND. I love hearing from you!
Dear Lovers of Life that is Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise,
A lot of folks emailed to say they could not make the Tuesday eve. call.
Not to worry – here is the link for the mp3 audio. It will play instantly on a smart phone and it will play or download on a computer:
This is a one hour talk by Tony Balistreri and myself about how Qigong can attract wealth. We didn’t actually have time to get much into the longevity part, but will cover that in depth at the seminar in Asheville.
I’ve gotten a slew of emails telling me how powerful and informative the Tuesday call was, so I hope you’ll find it worth your while to download and listen to at your leisure.
One focus of the talk is about defining exactly what qualifies as “abundance” or “wealth”. In my decades long exploration of Taoist cultivation, the simplest answer is: Wealth is whatever helps us complete our Highest Destiny, both worldly destiny and spiritual destiny. It’s not money, or houses or fancy cars. It is about what energetically really feeds you, balances you, and nourishes your inner soul.
The Primordial Tai Chi for Enlightened Love form I’m teaching in Asheville zeros in on the crossing point between the horizontal axis of our worldly destiny and the vertical axis of our spiritual destiny. I haven’t found another qigong form that matches it in this respect.
I’m also including a link here to a video taken immediately after the last qigong workshop I taught with Tony in November 2013 on the Qigong Fundamentals. I think it will give you the flavor of how powerfully the experience of Qi can change peoples lives, and change it quickly.
Finally, I want to make it clear that the workshop Tony and I are hosting in Asheville on April 12 & 13 is open to all levels of practitioners, including beginners. This form is very simple and graceful, super easy to learn (unlike complicated martial tai chi styles). Everyone will draw from it what they are able to absorb.
Tony, who has organized the space at the Biltmore Park Hilton, has also graciously offered to lower the price for my newsletter readers (including any of his students who are already on my list). I told him my students are spoiled by the low prices I charge for workshops.
The full weekend was originally priced at $400. Tony has agreed to reduce it to $199. for my readers, on a first-come basis until it fills up. So please do not delay. Tony motive? He wants to get to meet folks from my side of the qigong fence.
All you have to do is call 888 999 0555 or email my office manager Jan Gillespie at <email@example.com> and use the code phrase “Chi Flow Naturally” to get the discount.

NEW WORKSHOP! Qigong for Wealth & Longevity April 12-13 in Asheville
Qigong for Longevity & Abundance
co-taught by Michael Winn and Tony Balistreri
Are YOU ready to cross the bridge and fulfill your wildest, most far out dreams?
Where: Biltmore Park Hilton Hotel, Asheville, N.C. (details below)
When: Sat-Sun, April 12-13 , 2014 9 am to 5 pm
To book: call 888 999 0555 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Cost: Advertised full price is $400. To readers of my newsletter, a 50% discount applies: $199. When you call in or emaili to book, just say “Chi Flows Naturally” as the booking code.
Learn Primordial Tai Chi for Enlightened Love from Michael Winn, with special attention onhow to apply it towards living a longer, healthier, and more abundant life.
After practicing the form for over 15 years, he is ready to share some of his secrets as to how to focus one’s intent before, during, and after the “Wu Ji Gong” Ceremony, literally “Skill at Entering the Unknown”. It is what we bring back from the “unknown” that helps us manifest what we need in the “known”, i.e. our daily lives.
Michael’s two volume eBook will be coming out this year – I promise a msater piece that takes you deep into this Cosmological Qi Gong form. Vol. 1 is being formatted now.
This magical, powerful 800 year old lineage qigong ceremony integrates the grace of Tai Chi, the magic square of feng shui, the dynamic inner coupling of Taoist alchemy, the healing benefits of medical qigong, and the earthly transmission power of China’s original tai chi form!
Learn to gather the directional chi of Heaven and Earth in graceful spirals. This is one of my favorite forms, and only requires 15 min. practice length. If you’ve learned the form from the DVD, this will take you much deeper.
This weekend counts as a CERTIFICATION course in Primordial Tai Chi (if you have been praticing it previous to the workshop, from the DVD or from earlier live training).
For more about the form, and numerous testimonials about how amazing the form is, please see http://www.taichi-enlightenment.com

His ebooks include Way of the Inner Smile, Five Animals Qi Gong, and Tai Chi: A Path of Self-Love.
This qigong training will be integrated with the master-manifesting skills of Tony Balistreri:
from Tony Balistreri:
I’ve come to understand by practicing Qi Gong, for over a decade, that it can prime the pump of our healing and self-alignment abilities. Once our “chi” motor is running, so to speak, we can then begin to sense, especially in our hands, what the energy feels like. We can then transmute the energy into a frequency and we’re off and running.
Things have been changing, have you noticed? There’s a new energy available to us. I believe it is new to the planet. We have moved into a time in our human evolution where this physical existence has become more malleable. This is an amazing opportunity for us to truly begin to create how we prefer our lives to be. Sometimes, it may feel as though we are stumbling through this existence, without being able to influence it.
I know you’ve heard this before: “No matter how hard we try, this life cannot be changed from the outside.”
Our preferences must take form from the inside for life to reflect it back to us. Simple as this may sound, it takes a bit of guidance and practice. I will guide you through specific meditations and give you practical tools to help you bolster your power of intention. You’ll gain unlimited, unfailing power to manifest your dreams. Even more, you will come away with a certainty, a clarity, a knowing, and a new confidence in your own abilities.
Michael and I invite you to explore: “Qi Gong for Longevity and Abundance!”

April 19-20 Awaken 8 Psychic Channels: Macro-Orbit + Holland in March
• April 19 – 20, 2014 (Sat/Sun) at Asheville Training Center.
bagua image from dreamtime.com
Awaken Your 8 Psychic Channels: FUSION of FIVE ELEMENTS 2 & 3.
Open the Macro-Cosmic Orbit & Eight Extraordinary Vessels
Secrets of growing a powerful Energy Body Psychic alchemy: open 8 core channels
• Supercharge spine in spirals of golden light • Open thrusting, belt, arm & leg channels • Heal chronic illness & deep pre-natal trauma • 8 Extraordinary Vessels Qigong (on DVD) • Pangu Mystical Qigong (on DVD)
Read SAMPLE TRANSCRIPT from Fusion 2/3 course lecture:
Open the Macro-Cosmic Orbit by linking chi flow in the Eight Extraordinary (“psychic”) channels. These channels link your pre-natal and post-natal energy bodies, i.e. the deep structure of how you birth yourself each flowing moment. Source needs a pathway to flow into the physical body, and this is the pathway.
Learn to purify your aura & regulate your Energy Body with belt & thrusting channels. Give to and Receive chi from the environment with Positive & Negative Arm & Leg channels.
The 8 Extra Vessels connect the inner and outer chi field, and allow you to “dance” between your inner and outer life. The Wudang Mountain version of the macro-cosmic orbit will also be taught as the most powerful internal method I’ve found for integrating the 8 Extraordinary Vessels into a continuous flowing circuit.
The macro-orbit is the foundation for opening chi flow to 8 Original Forces of Universe (I Ching trigram-tones). Powerful “8 Extraordinary Vessels” qigong form makes this practice simple to remember. It heals deep psychic imbalances not reached by acupuncture. Many mysterious and chronic illnesses can be healed at this 8 Extra Vessels level, much faster than using ordinary 12 meridian acupuncture or herbs.
Another new practice taught is my recently developed “9 Spirals of the Energy Body” in the four directions to integrate the Five Vital Organ Spirits (Shen) with the Five Directional Dragons. This practice connects the internal flow of your macro-cosmic orbit out to the edge of the universe – and back! A wonderfully empowering and healing journey.
This course lays a strong foundation for Healing Love and Water & Fire (Kan & Li) Alchemy.
The 9 Major Benefits of Fusion of the Five Elements 2 & 3:
Build a more powerful Energy Body by making conscious the deep energetic structure of your body-mind. You become far more powerful energetically in all spheres of your life. Everyone needs more energy; few understand where to find it and how to keep it balanced. Fusion 2/3 offers a template for a dynamic, flexible, grounded, and continuously flowing Energy Body.
Activate the relationship between your 5 body-spirits and the 8 extraordinary vessels. Fusion 1 develops the pearl as the integration and purification of ego consciousness. Fusion 2/3 moves the pearl through the 8 channels. These 8 channels are the deep pathways the 5 inner “body spirits” of our heart-mind (“xin”) use to energetically manage our biology, our psychology, and our spirituality. Cosmologically, this is equivalent to hard wiring 5-phase and 8-trigram/8-cosmic force theory into one.
Open chi flow internally in the Macro-cosmic Orbit. The Micro-cosmic orbit taught in Qigong Fundamentals 2 balances internal yin-yang chi flow. The Macro orbit adds in the arm and leg channels, which balances the chi flow between the environment and our body. It functionally integrates the chi flow between our inner self and our outer self/world. The macro orbit creates a wonderful feeling of deeper harmony with all that is around us. This Fusion 3 practice is made simple and easy-to-embody by use of the unique 8 Extraordinary Vessels Qigong form, which I custom-developed from years of practice.
Gain a powerful tool for self-healing, especially chronic illness and “mystery illnesses” that don’t respond to other treatments. Since the healing with the 8 Extraordinary Vessels occurs at a deeper level, it dissolves chronic diseases that are hard to cure, and stubborn mental-emotional patterns that do not respond to standard medical or psychological techniques.
5.Learn to tap into the most effective secrets of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM). TCM (“Traditional Chinese Medicine”, invented about 50 years ago) does not use the 8 extraordinary vessels. It’s because the 8 Extraordinary Vessels are deep meridians, mostly below the skin level, thus not easily accessible to acupuncture. These 8 deep ‘reservoirs and canals” feed the 12 superficial (vital organ) meridians. If the 8 deep channels are balanced, all 12 of the regular channels will automatically self-balance.
Private studies show that 8 Extra treatments work faster and have a higher success rate of healing than regular 12-meridian acupuncture. 8 extra acupuncture treatments are slowly becoming known in the west, using ion-pumping cords and master-coupling points where the channels begin and start. But these channels are much more powerful when opened internally and in conjunction with pearl of inner will refined in Fusion 1.
6.Grow deep wisdom with “psychic alchemy”. Fusion teaches you to become a “Living I Ching” (Book of Unchanging Changes, 3000 year old classic that is foundation of Taoism). Learn the connection between the 8 deep core channels in your body and the 8 trigrams of the I Ching as symbolic system for mediating the 8 cosmic forces that hold form in place and dictate all patterns of change.
This pattern of “8” is not just some Chinese myth – it is found in biological cell division, in DNA structure, and in sacred geometry of the 8 points of the cube/earth element. The 8 trigrams of the I Ching are used for divination. When you activate 8 deep channels awareness in the body, you become a highly intuitive or psychic person. You begin to spontaneously receive more information from the larger chi field of the environment.
Supercharge the spinal cord, its physical nerve plexus and its subtle energy wiring with the Fusion 2 method of wrapping the spine with golden light (chi) of your inner pearl. This intense practice is like changing your body’s internal communication system from slow dialup to high speed internet.
8.Learn numerous practical ways to interface your physical body and your Energy Body. The two most important are using the belt channels for grounding and psychic protection, and activating the left, right, and center thrusting channels to clear internal blockages and extend your awareness deep into earth or high into heaven. The pearl can be extended like an antenna above the head or below the ground to receive cosmic chi frequencies without static. When core channels flow in continuous yin-yang circuits, they form an energetic torus (donut shaped aura) that is self-recharging.
The purified chi of your pearl can clean your aura and spine if used to “slice” through energy blockages. Pearl is also used to rejuvenate your senses (especially helpful for eyes of computer users) with internal figure-8 spiraling techniques.
Open pathways of communication between your Original Spirit, pre-natal self and your post-natal (physical) self. The pearl and the 8 Extra Vessels are like half-way meditators between your physical body and your formless inner self. Thus Fusion internal technology can be used to heal trauma that occurred in your mother’s womb. It facilitates downloading whatever our body-mind needs from the infinite, formless sea of chi within. Every human being was born from this dark ocean of potential energy. But more important is to realize we all carry that ocean of chi inside of us, and learn how to use it.
Pre-req: Fusion 1, live or by homestudy. Learning the energy channel work of Fusion 2/3 without doing the emotional body/inner pearl work of Fusion 1 is also possible, but not optimal. Email me first.
