Event description

Description

Expert Tai Chi instructor and Qigong Master Instructor Terry Dunn will be giving a total of three five-day intensive workshops in October 2019 at Eastover Estate: two 5-day workshops will be conducted to prepare students for his teacher Grandmaster William C.C. Chen’s week-long Tai Chi intensive October 11th – 15th; the third and fourth five-day workshops will provide follow-up training and refinement to further establish the training given by Grandmaster Chen. Thus Tai Chi enthusiasts—beginners and advanced players alike– will have the option to take five, ten, fifteen, or twenty days instruction from Grandmaster Chen or Terry Dunn or both.

Besides learning the 60-posture form of Grandmaster William Chen, students who are ready will also learn the applications of the Form for self-defense, receive an introduction to Push-hands, which is the laboratory for learning the martial applications of Tai Chi, and also learn the Yang style straight sword form. The five hours of intensive Form training each day will be balanced by and Dunn’s extraordinary lessons in evening sessions in Tao Tan Pai Nei Kung and Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong, two very different Taoist monastic systems of Qigong that he has mastered, but both of which are shaped to not just complement Tai Chi practice, but to accelerate development in Tai Chi Chuan.

This is Professor Cheng Man-Ching’s resonating Taoist philosophy that is activated by the practice of his style of Tai Chi Chuan that you will learn at the workshops:


Workshop No.1: Tai Chi For Health (5 days)
October 4 to 8 (starts Friday night; ends Tuesday 6pm)

In this 5-day, 35-hour immersive workshop, master instructor Terry Dunn will provide students of all levels with expert, step-by-step instruction in the 60-posture Yang Style Short Form created by his teacher, Grandmaster William C.C. Chen. To more easily learn and perfect your Tai Chi form, you will also learn a superb regimen of easy-to-do classical Tai Chi warm-up and conditioning exercises that Terry has developed over the past 43 years of his martial arts career. Then you will learn the basics of Push-Hands (Tui-shou) practice, the elegant laboratory for applying Tai Chi principles to everyday life–and learning the martial applications of Tai Chi Chuan.

The purpose of this workshop is to help students at all levels gain proficiency in the 60-posture Short Form and to improve their practice in order to enjoy more of Tai Chi’s great health benefits, and also, if they choose to stay on, to give them a strong foundation in order to derive maximum benefit from Grandmaster William Chen’s more advanced teachings in his workshop that follows immediately (October 11 through 15).






[ In between is GM Wm Chen’s Tai Chi worshop: October 10 to 15 arriving 4:00pm on 10th]

Workshop No. 2: Tai Chi For Health + Flying Phoenix Qigong (5 days)
October 16 – 20 (starts Wednesday 2pm; ends Sunday 6pm)

In this 5-day, 35-hour immersive workshop, master instructor Terry Dunn will provide students of all levels with expert, step-by-step instruction in the 60-posture Yang style Tai Chi form created by his teacher, Grandmaster William C.C. Chen, give you a foundation or further skills in Tai Chi “Push-hands” practice, teach subtle Form applications, and provide expert lessons in the beautiful Tai Chi Sword form (for those well-versed in the 60-part Form).

This workshop follows immediately on the heels of Grandmaster William Chen’s 5-day intensive workshop and is a splendid opportunity for students to continue to refine their practice at the same intensity. Your Tai Chi Form, Push-hands skills, Tai Chi swordplay, and overall knowledge of Tai Chi principles and how to apply them will be deepened by this workshop experience.






Workshop No.3: Flying Phoenix Qigong (3 days)
October 24 – 27 (starts Thursday 7pm; ends Sunday noon)

Flying Phoenix Qigong with Master Terry Dunn is a 3-day immersive workshop that teaches Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations (Fei Feng San Gung), a rare and extraordinarily powerful medical Qigong system that was created more than 400 years ago by renowned Taost monk Feng Dao Deh of Ehrmeishan. In this workshop, you will learn this complete Taoist monastic system of hygienics –comprised of standing and seated, stationary and moving meditations that imparts a wide range of salient health benefits with remarkable swiftness: increased respiratory power, improved circulation and metabolism, higher energy levels, improved neuro-muscular function and balance, peak immunity, increased bone strength, and the allostatic reversal of many signs of aging.

Flying Phoenix Qigong imparts its remarkable health benefits through a yogic mechanism that brings all the organ functions of the body under the regulation of the subconscious mind. This super-regulating process and energy cultivation is brought on by each of the 24 Flying Phoenix Meditations, which consists of (A) an easy-to-do breath-control formula followed by (B) a meditation in repose or a serene moving meditation using repetitive natural movements that are done three times slower than typical Tai Chi practice. The esoteric breathing formula that precedes each Flying Phoenix meditation ignites a specific flow of Qi in the body that is tangible; the following posture and movements circulate the energy through specific orbs of the body. Flying Phoenix Qigong is easier to learn and practice than Tai Chi and its health benefits are tangible, profound, and more immediate. Long term Flying Phoenix practice activates man’s latent healing potential and cultivates a superabundance of the distinctively tangible and visible Flying Phoenix Energy (Qi) that has extraordinary healing properties unlike any type of energy generated by any other form of Yoga.

Besides providing its splendid health benefits, Flying Phoenix Qigong integrates mind and body so deeply that it develops highest structural sensitivity that imbues the practitioner with deepest levels of jhanic absorption that naturally carries over into any other form or mode of meditation, making it deeper and more comfortable and blissful.
