China Dream Trip May 2014 will visit the famous Hanging Temples of Mt. Heng, the Taoist sacred mountain of the North. Details below include the “Taoist Dream Caves” atop Huashan.
Dear Dreamers of the Tao – the Natural Way,
Hope you’ve been having lots of summer fun. The Tao Summer Retreats near Asheville were fabulous, as usual. See below for a video clip from my Medical and Spiritual Qigong Fundamentals retreat. This 2.5 minute video is about how to root oneself. It has ten people attempting – and failing miserably – to push me over: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAQ49oR8tDs
If you want to learn to develop this kind of root, see my fall schedule below. When I first started training, I got pushed over immediately by just one person. This is a trainable skill, with many benefits to health, emotional grounding, and spiritual self-cultivation.
That all depends on your skill level in creating realities. I recently recorded a 40 minute interview on Taoist dream practice and a lucid dreaming qigong form I developed for my personal practice (available with the special discount this month).This youtube interview was an advance presentation at an international Lucid Dream Conference in London Nov. 9-11, which includes a one day Lucid Dreaming Qigong seminar by me afterwards.
The youtube interview goes deep into my personal history as a lucid dreamer since I was a teenager. My night life got so active, I eventually ran a “Night School” in which I taught my day time friends the art of Lucid Flying in the dream world. I also explore the relationship between Taoist qigong and internal alchemy meditation, which has greatly raised my skill level and blurred the line between my day and night realities.
My integration of qigong and Taoist internal alchemy has allowed me to go in my daytime meditations to the same realms that are possible in the dream plane. The point of Tao dream practice is to take some shortcuts, as there is less resistance in the astral plane. But dream practice doesn’t necessarily give day time skill, so you need inner alchemy skill (neidan gong) to achieve complete mastery of one’s destiny.
My final conclusion: there is only One Self, dreaming both the day and night realities! But functioning from that Self (vs. the personality) requires discipline and training. My youtube interview is followed by spectacular images of Flower Mountain (Huashan ) in China, made famous by Chen Tuan, the Taoist Dream Immortal. Photos taken on China Dream Trips. We’ll be visiting Huashan’s famous “dream caves” in May 2014 – see below.

Then I’m flying to China to scout out sites for future China Dream Trips, and meet some interesting powerful Taoist masters. I’m attending an international Qigong and Longevity Conference at the base of Changbaishan, or “Eternal White Mountain”. I’ve been wanting to visit this mountain for over 30 years, ever since I began my study of One Cloud’s Tao Inner Alchemy Formulas for Achieving Immortality.
Changbaishan is a giant volcano with a lake on top (Lake Tianchi) in the far north of China – north of North Korea. The energy of this mountain is perfect for practicing internal alchemy, with its “water-above-fire” positioning of natural forces matching the “kan & li” alchemy formulas. A similar situation exists in Santorini, Greece, where I taught a series of very powerful alchemy retreats. We were in a small village perched on the side of a volcano that had filled with ocean, but still had hot fumerols rising up in the watery cauldron.
Mantak Chia tells me his teacher One Cloud climbed the mountain, but found a warm cave within it to practice in for seven years. There are hot springs at the base of the mountain, fed by volcanic fires below.
This mountain is where One Cloud found a hermit teacher who trained him to the level of breatharian, and later passed on these formulas to Mantak Chia. My evolution of those formulas, after 30 years of teaching and refining them: http://www.healingtaousa.co/one_clouds_nine_tao_alchemy_formulas.html
I’m not sure I’ll find One Cloud’s cave, but I do plan to tune in deeply for a week and see what the spirit of the mountain has to teach me. More on this later!
