Workshop Descriptions:

Introduction

Where you are at any given moment matters. Always. The earth’s enormously complex yet universally accessible bio-electro-magnetic field is constantly buzzing whether you know it or not. Your own similar field is constantly buzzing whether you know it or not. And that means that your ability to tune into yourself, as well as the living planet below and the dynamic sun and cosmos above, can create a synergistic circuit by which you may generate, receive, and transmit information, intention, and healing energy.

Thus, the more you know about the place you are, and the relationships it has with other places, the more you can create a bridge between near and far. The more you know about the layers of yourself, from physical to subtle, chakras to meridians and beyond, the more you can unify your internal and external experiences. Each of these workshops could be taken individually and provide more than enough of a departure point to pique greater knowledge. However, because the Power of Place stimulates the mind and the left brain, and Dancing Star Qigong trains the body for qi sensitivity through the right brain, they are designed to complement each other and ultimately, prepare the participant for deeper practice in subsequent workshops, field trips, and retreats, as well as inspire greater life purpose and fulfillment…

The Power of Place: Geomancy, Ley Lines, and Grids in Western NC and Beyond…

In this workshop, we will harness the power of Google Earth to study the world we live in from a wide perspective, zooming in and out to explore detail and context in ways impossible using paper maps or travel on foot. We will examine both naturally-occurring as well as manmade landmarks, bridging ancient cultures with modern urban blueprints, and creating a global context for the city of Asheville, NC and our region. Following the clues around us, we will be going far beyond any existing maps of ley lines and grids, discovering secrets in plain sight, and revealing innovative ways to harmonize with our local landscape. Participants will exit with minds expanded and an exhilarated sense of their place in the world.

Dancing Star Qigong Level 1: Intro to Taoist Rainbow Body Cultivation

In the first half of this workshop, we will go over the basics of qigong theory and practice, work on stances, breathing, energetic anatomy overview, and engage some preliminary qigong exercises. In the second half, we will dive into the Dancing Star system, a series of forms developed from 1500 year old exercises credited to the Buddhist monk Ta Mo (Bodhidharma), and having evolved through Truth-I’s study of yogic energetics, Zen meditation, and receiving transmission under two Taoist masters for five years. It has been his daily personal practice for over 13 years offering among its benefits, clarity of focus, physical health, strength, and flexibility, boosted immune system, regulation of circadian rhythms, increased inspiration and energy levels, harnessing of Earth and Cosmic Qi, and grounded perspective of the Tao.

About Truth-I:

Truth-I Manifest (neé Timothy Lingenheld) practices a philosophy of Life As Art and seeks to contribute to the renaissance of Planet Earth. Following a catastrophic ski accident and near-death experience in 2001, he discovered qigong during his long healing process and after using it to restore balance and strength to his body, began teaching on Venice Beach, CA in 2005. Truth-I has studied under numerous esoteric healers, martial arts sifus, indigenous elders, and two Taoist Masters of ancient lineage, as well as completed several years of intensive study at Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medicine. From 2006-2012, he was an instructor at the world-renowned Ashram Health Retreat in Calabasas, CA, teaching holistic health principles, mindfulness, fitness, yoga, and qigong to over 2200 people, including many of America’s leaders in business, entertainment, and politics. He has been a spoken word poet/MC/singer for 20 years, and, alongside his beloved wife, Aradhana Silvermoon, has been fronting their band, I,Star since 2006. Truth-I’s vision and entrepreneurial spirit has helped expand Aradhana’s organic, raw chocolate company, Silvermoon Chocolate from a single farmer’s market table into a well-loved brand both in Asheville, and at music festivals up and down the East Coast and into the Midwest. He enjoys working as a Firekeeper for gatherings, ceremonies, and lodges, invoking the Sacred Fire to share its powerful medicine for the healing of humanity. Having left a trail of organic food and herb gardens, fruit trees, and compost systems in his wake during his travels for the last 15 years, he believes that permaculture is vital to the long term viability of civilization. Truth-I’s current projects include finally publishing his collected poems, producing I,Star’s next album, music videos, and tour, scaling Silvermoon Chocolate to national distribution, launching the next generation of his workshops, retreats, and coaching programs, all while trying to keep up with his dynamic 4-year old daughter.
