Inside Chi Flows Naturally:

I’ve been doing Taoist qigong ceremonies inside Stonehenge for the past 8 years. In the past, they have only been open to adepts training in the Kan & Li levels of neidangong (inner alchemy).
This September 14, the Stonehenge ceremony will be open to anyone who signs up for any of three workshops being offered back-to-back Sept. 13-18. The workshops are open to all, no pre-requisites.
We rent Stonehenge in order to have it privately for our own ceremony. This is a very powerful time to be tuning into the planetary energy field at powerful nodal points such as Stonehenge. There are a limited number of participants allowed in for the ceremony – so please sign up as soon as possible to ensure your space is reserved.

Deep Healing Medical Qi Gong Sept 13-15 (+ more Stonehenge photos)
This course is two parts. One is learning the Deep Healing Qigong form.The other is learning about the different approaches to medical qigong. Chi transmission is very different from self-practice or “borrowing cosmic chi” to heal. I’ll explain how to evaluate their merits and disadvantages.
For FAQs on medical qigong, and which medical conditions are healed by the different qigong forms I’ve put on DVD, visit: www.healingtaousa.com/medicalqigong.html
How Does Deep Healing Qigong Work?
Deep Healing Qigong was formerly titled Medical Chi Kung. A simple version of it has been used successfully for decades in Chinese medical qigong hospitals in China to treat a wide variety of chronic illness. This is a “self-practice” form of medical qigong.
This version of the qigong form has been super charged by me after extensive experimentation using high level qigong and inner alchemy methods. Affirmations to activate the emotional body, adding color, sound and channel modifications and focusing the “yi” or mind intent have greatly intensified its effectiveness.
This qigong set has 6 parts. If time is short, you can practice just one or two segments, still with great effect. If all six are done together, the form is extremely powerful. It can sometimes create an overwhelmingly powerful chi flow, enough to make your hair stand on its end.
Deep Healing Qigong combines the best of body-centered feng shui or directional qigong, the alchemical healing process of mixing opposite polar forces, color therapy, Six Healing Sounds, body movement in sacred geometric patterns to activate the Eight Extraordinary Vessels, and subtle chi breathing that links and nourishes the human body with chi from the Earth’s energy body.
What is the secret of Deep Healing Qigong’s amazing effectiveness?
The synergy between all of these advanced methods help you re-birth a completely new and fresh Energy Body rather than trying to “fix” the dysfunctional energetic patterns of your old self.
Deep Healing Qigong teaches the secret of completely emptying the body of its old patterns of sick energy, and then refills you using the chi from the sun and deep earth. Portions of this form are used in Michael Winn’s training of higher alchemical formulas of One Cloud, with deeper internal training that is offered to live students only. But the movements of the form are simple and can be performed by anyone, including (with slight modification) the wheelchair bound or bed-ridden.
Testimonial (unsolicited) about this Deep Healing Qigong form says it all.
It was written by a PhD. Graduate student in mathematics who was a total “newbie” when he began practicing this form, his very first foray into qigong. As a result of his healing with this form decided to go and become a Healing Tao instructor:
Deep Healing Qigong is my absolute favorite qigong form, as it is one of the most powerful I’ve come across. For starters, I was able to use continued practice of this qigong to help break emotional and energetic difficulties I faced upon the ending of a long-term relationship. It has a magical quality that helps eliminate addictive habitual patterns — be they physical or emotional.
On the health front, I’ve been able to shorten the stay of physical illnesses through the use of this form. Despite feeling rotten and unpleasant while practicing, I’ve had some colds and flu end in a much shorter time then I thought possible.
One beautiful thing about this form I’ve found, is that it seems to work on multiple levels. When I was first learning the form, I found that the parts of the form that I really liked, provided immediate benefits. To my surprise — I found that the parts of the form that I “didn’t” like as much would create profound shifts that would hit me days later. Moreover, I’ve found the form to actually get stronger and stronger through continued practice. It’s as if repeated practice causes it to tune in “deeper”.
This is a wonderful ceremonial form to practice on solstices and equinoxes. In particular, I’ve found that if I practice the Deep Healing Qigong on the Winter Solstice, it will create sudden wonderful changes in my life at a surprising time weeks later.
You don’t need to have any experience in the Healing Tao to learn this form (in fact, it was the first thing I learned), and in that case, the form provides a wonderful overview of things you’ll learn later in more depth. Then, as your knowledge base increases, you’ll find your understanding of the form deepen and you’ll find the form to get even stronger.
All in all, I can’t recommend this form highly enough.

Shamanic Big Dipper Qi Gong & Star Attunements Sept. 17 – 18
Shamanic Seven Star Qigong Ceremony
Come learn the Shamanic Big Dipper 7 Star Qigong ceremony from the lineage of the Path of the Female Immortals. I teach this form on my China Dream Trips (sorry, there is NO DVD). Even if you’ve already learned the form, I’ve developed the internal energetic understanding and you’ll enjoy going deeper.
This form is used for Protection and Manifestation. You literally “dance” the seven stars of the Big Dipper with your feet, while using very amazing “brain gym”-like hand movements. It was used in ancient times by soliders in military formation to repel the enemy and create a protective force field. It can be used to repel psychic attack.
It is an extremely grounding form. At its highest level of practice, it is designed to integrate one’s worldly destiny with one’s spiritual destiny. This is accomplished by ‘bringing down” the purple pole star (Polaris) at the top of the central tai chi pole axis of Heaven down into its lower pole of Earth.
