the wuji gong ceremony originally from Wudang Mtn.
Dear Lovers of the Natural Way,
My energy body is still buzzing from a month in China.
Although Tao (Dao) is not limited to any physical place,
China’s sacred mountains definitely hold a special high
charge that comes from thousands of years of Taoist adepts
cultivating themselves in Nature. Nature hasn’t forgotten
their efforts, or the accomplishments of those who realized
their immortality in those mountains.
We performed the same ceremonial-alchemical wuji gong form,
a special qigong that literally translates as “Skill at
Entering the Supreme Mystery”, a.k.a. “Tai Chi for
Enlightenment”. By doing the ceremony in different sacred
mountains and temple locations, our group of 36 western
seekers were able to concentrate the spiritual force of
Nature internally. The cumulative effect constituted a
natural transmission from Nature, not limited to any one
Taoist sect or mountain, but embracing them all.
There were numerous sites, each with its own unique chi
field: The Jade Emperor Temple in remote Weibao Mtn in
Yunnan province near Burma; the 2000 year old Celestial
Master Cave on Mt. Qing, the “White Ruler God” temple atop
majestic Flower Mtn (Huashan), and the ethereal chi of the
ascension site of Lao Tzu at Louguantai were some of the
most powerful. Seventeen people spent time in caves near the
Han Dynasty Pole Star Cave on Huashan, where the Deity of
the Essence of Purple Subtlety has been cultivated for the
last 2200 years. Many had powerful visions in this
cave-temple, which is tended by an old hermit friend of mine
whose Taoist name is the Master of the Stone of Perfection.
We also practiced wuji qigong at an unforgettable sunset
atop the Great Wall of China, beside the primordial force of
the rushing cataracts of the Yangtse River in Tiger Leaping
Gorge, on serene Mt. Cang overlooking Dali’s Lake Erhai, and
in four of China’s most ancient famous Taoist temples: Green
Goat Temple in Chengdu, 8 Immortals Temple in Xian, and
White Cloud Temple and Temple of Heaven in Beijing. All in
all, it was a lot to digest. We were tapping into Nature’s
memory of millennia of meditating Taoists from different
lineages. Most of us are still allowing this powerful
tranmission to integrate within our bodies.
What I noticed, as a change from earlier trips, was that the
Earth chi had opened up to become even more accessible. The
was predicted by the I Ching reading I did before the trip,
which gave me the reading of hexagram 52, Mountain over
Mountain, with unusual double lines changing it to hexagram
2, Earth over Earth. As predicted, the mountain portals
opened, and we entered deep Earth, the cosmic jing (creative
essence) of the planet. I believe this energy is more
available to everyone in this time period. The China Dream
Trippers simply concentrated the process and took advantage
of the groundwork laid by Tao Immortals and mountain sages.
Transmission from Ancestor Dad: Future China Trips Planned
One of the sages who prepared my own Way on this trip was my
82 year old father, who died the week before I left for
China. I will later write about his remarkable
communications to me during his transition, and the relation
of these communications to inner alchemy practice opening
our ability to “speak” with the formless side of Life,
popularly known as Death.
I also arrived early in Beijing to study with a qigong
master reputed to be the best at healing diabetes using
qigong. I found his method credible, his healing energy
quite powerful, and plan to release his method in the West
by DVD after integrating it with other medical qigong
methods I have been collecting to heal diabetes naturally.
He claims an 80% effectiveness rate for type 1 and type 2
diabetes with one hour of practice a day for a month. Given
the epidemic nature of diabetes here, this qigong should
find eager practitioners.
More interestingly, this master was also heir to a
transmission from the “Ni Xian Pai” or Female Immortal
lineage. He shared a powerful method for linking internal
(pre-natal) sun-moon breathing with external (post natal)
breathing. He demonstrated his ability to call in the Five
Dragons of the Inner Earth. I have refined these methods
already to a more internal level, and will integrate them
into the Greater Kan & Li sun-moon alchemical methodology.
If events permit – and the Goddess of the Bird Flu is
merciful, I will lead a two week spanish language trip to
China in May 2007 and a three week Dream Trip in May 2008.
Each trip will include new mountains not yet explored,
including Mt. Emei in Sichuan province and Mt. Wudang in
Wudang is where the magical Wuji Gong ceremony originated,
attributed to the Taoist sage and tai chi founder Chang San
Feng, and it will be appropriate to visit there while the
rest of China is focused on the Olympics. Wudang is home to
many champion cultivators of the True Golden Elixir. I feel
this inner golden alchemical radiance lasts far longer than
the physical shine on any Olympic Gold Medal. 🙂
Wudang Taoist Summit in Boulder July 6-9, 2006
But for those who cannot wait until 2008 to visit Mt.
Wudang, and want an advance peak at Wudang mountain Taoist
culture (made famous by the film, Leaping Tiger, Crouching
Dragon), you have the opportunity to do so in Boulder this
July 6-9. My hat is off to my friend Chen (Taoist name: Yun
Xiang Tseng), a Wudang Taoist priest who has had the vision
to bring 30 Taoists from Wudang Mountain for a summit here
in the USA.
This extraordinary undertaking involves bringing Taoists of
various skills under one roof, including a team of 14 Wudang
Internal Kungfu artists, the mayor Wudang village, the
President of the Wudang Taoist Association, and others. I
saw the kung fu team perform last September 2005 when I
visited Wudang Mtn. They were very impressive, and I prefer
their internal style to Shaolin styles. I studied the Wudang
8 Immortals Sword form there with Master Bing, who is an
excellent teacher, and who will be remaining here in the USA
for another year if you choose to catch some of his training
in Wudang styles.
There will be several Taoist ceremonies performed at the
summit. I Ching, feng shui, and face readings will be
available, with workshops on various movement and meditation
arts, and auxilliary seminars by locals Ken Cohen, Jampa
MacKenzie (Healing Tao Austin), and others. I unfortunately
cannot attend due to my Dao mtn. teaching schedule, but it
looks to be a superb weekend.
I have arranged with Chen for subscribers to my newsletter
to receive a $50. discount off the full three day price. If
you show a copy of this email at registration or call in and
pre-register by Friday June 23 (just mention it), the $395.
fee will be reduced to $345. Contact info is given at the
top of this letter.
This summit is part of Chen’s vision to build a Wudang
Temple in the mountains of Colorado. I support his efforts,
as he is a sincere adept of neidangong (inner alchemy). It
is not my path to join any of the Taoist monastic sects in
China, but It is my mission to find the best methods from
all the schools of neidan in China and bring them into the
light of Western practitioners. The techniques may vary, but
the principles are similar amongst the different schools of
I hope all of you are attuning to the spiritual light of the
Summer Solstice, a big event that makes it easy to
communicate with the expanded chi field for several days. I
have written in the past on how to do this ceremony. The
intention here is to allow the Divine Light/ Fire Chi to
flower in your life as you most need it and as it serves the
unfolding of your unique destiny within the great flowing
ocean of the Tao. Do not be afraid to ask for what you truly
need, and let the natural field shine through your soul!
Love, chi, blessings,
