Tao Tan Pai Qigong Retreat w/Sifu Terry Dunn

Tao Tan Pai Qigong with Terence Dunn
AUG 15, 2019 - AUG 18, 2019

Terence Dunn teaches the Taoist Elixir Method (Tao Tan Pai) Basic 31 Meditations in this 22-hour immersive Qigong workshop. Taoist Elixir Method is a complete ancient Taoist system of moving meditation and breath control that imparts good health, vitality and personal empowerment by coordinating eyes, mind, movement, and breath according to an alchemic formula that opens the heart, clears and focuses the mind and profoundly strengthens the body. The health benefits of Tao Tan Pai practice are improved circulation, respiration, digestion, metabolism, posture, balance, flexibility, neuro-muscular coordination, sound and restful sleep, and effective management of stress.

Tao Tan Pai 31 Meditations is the basic health and self-healing Qigong training of the Tao Tan Pai Kung Fu system, an authentic Taoist monastic system of hygienics that originated during China's Tang Dynasty and is attributed to Lu Deng Bin, the leader of the Eight Taoist Immortals (saints) and was preserved for 23 generations mostly at the Ancient Temple of the Yellow Dragon ( Huanglong Guguan ) near Mt. Luohu in China's Guangdong province before Taoist priest Share Lew brought the art to America in 1968. Tan Pai Qigong traditionally has been the secret engine that develops the natural body mechanics and tangible superabundance of energy that empowers the Tao Tan Pai Kung Fu. Thus it is the perfect complement and support for any athletic activity besides martial arts. During this weekend workshop, you learn the 15 standing and 16 seated meditations known as the Tao Tan Pai Basic 31. You will also learn what is known as the Short Form Power Yoga, consisting of five of the 31 meditations, which is an essential distillation of the 31 meditation system, handily designed for daily practice of approximately 35-40 minutes.
