Dragon and Tiger Qigong Intensive Training

Washington, DC, United States
19 June 2017 - 1 July 2017

Whether you are seeking to greatly improve your ability as a practitioner or to become a certified instructor (see below for full certification details), this Dragon & Tiger Intensive Training is for you.

Here you will immerse yourself for two weeks in the art of Dragon & Tiger Qigong with Taoist Master Bruce Frantzis and his most experienced Dragon & Tiger Level 3 and Senior Instructors (Bill Ryan, Craig Barnes and others). You will work daily with them as well as with other motivated and dedicated students/practitioners.

What's the difference between attending an intensive and a workshop? An intensive is just that. It's the deepest exploration of a subject offered and through a combination of teaching, personal feedback and focused practice sessions, will give you the best opportunity to emerge with the material not just in your head, but integrated into your body.

Course price after May 1: $1995

There will be three training groups: Levels 1, 2 and 3. The Level 1 and 2 groups are open to anyone who meets the prerequisites listed below. The Level 3 group requires personal invitation from Bruce as well as extensive experience and many years of prior training.

Bruce will offer teachings for the Level 1, 2, and 3 groups each day. The Senior Instructors will do a significant amount of the daily teaching for groups 1 and 2.Read more...

Taoist Meditation: Balance, Love and Compassion

Santa Eulalia del Rio, Ibiza, Spain
18 July 2017 - 22 July 2017

At the heart of the human condition are interactions and relationships with many things; ourselves, friends, family, lovers, society, the natural world. Most major religions of the world recognize this placing great value upon the development of love and compassion.

While both of these powerful aspirations which form the basis of religion and spiritual life are truly wonderful, Taoists believe that compassion and love must be cultivated though a functional foundation of balance in your life. Otherwise, given the selfish nature of the human ego, our better nature becomes too difficult to actualize. 

This training will use the spiritual technology of Taoist Water Method meditation to move beyond fear and isolation, generating balance and nurturing the seeds of love and compassion to grow.

Our mind is often spaced out or distracted by incessant and sometimes negative thinking. We make great efforts to be clear and calm, but these periods often don’t last long. The speed of modern life and proliferation of computers and smartphones has made this situation even more challenging. This retreat with Master Bruce Frantzis seeks to provide us with exceptional tools to remedy this.
