  • On October 28-29, 2011 we were privileged to host Master Ping Zhen Cheng  for two seminars. His  extensive knowledge and experience with Martial Arts and Qigong made this a unique and valuable learning experience  for attending students.

          This two day workshop cover the following four techniques: 


1. Deep Melting Relaxation - combines the essence of Taoist & Tibetan Meditation with self-hypnosis: improves sleeping quality & the immune system by nurturing the brain and the meridians. Students will also learn to gradually form in-depth inner-dialogues between different layers of the being through re-directing & reprograming the energy and inner consciousness system based on Chinese & Tibetan traditional medicine principles. 

2. Chakra & Personality Transformational Skills:  Recognizing the differences & applying them in meditation:  Different levels of the TRUE SELF and the False self; True and False forms of Energy, Prana, or Qi; True emotional patterns & False emotional patterns.
3.The key of Inner Balance -Lymph node cleansing with self-acupressure, meditation & visualization, 14 segments to cover all major lymph regions.

4. The Core of the Tibetan Meditation System - The combined teachings of Dzogchen & Mahamudra:
    a. Intro to the 12 levels of the Mahamudra from the point of transpersonal psychology.

For part 4, recommend reading any TWO of the following books:
