Pa Tuan Chin, a system of psycho-physical training developed in Asian monasteries and forests during the past 4,000 years, addresses how to build essential energy skills. This is a fundamental introduction to this ancient health system, focusing on creation of wei-chi, or your Radiant Shield of Protective Energy. This is a Basic Health Maintenance Program, suitable for any age group with little or no experience in martial arts, meditation, and/or energy work, upon which principles and practices of advanced curriculum are founded. The entire training strengthens the immune system, increases cerebral functions, and encourages a long life of inner development. The studies are kinetic and gentle and are designed to improve musculature, circulation, vital organ function, and to increase availability of internal energy.

This workshop has several components:

Tui Na self-massage

Location of energy points and methods of their stimulation

Exercises from the Shaolin Temple for stretching and strengthening

Tao Yin meditation and visualization instruction
