An Invitation from Master Bruce Frantzis
Longmont, Colorado

When I was a young man traveling throughout Asia, I studied martial arts full-time, everyday. My sole focus was on developing power.

Then in the 1980s, I experienced a traumatic car accident that literally broke my body, and the importance of health and healing became crystal clear.

When my teachers–most especially Taoist Sage Liu Hung Chieh–led me into places within my mind that I never dreamed existed, it opened me up to the ultimate potential of spirit and consciousness. 

Whether training is for health, power, healing, smooth emotions, peace of mind, clarity or any combination of these and more,  they are all manifestations of how much energy you have and how well it flows through you. Taoists have perfected both the science and the art of cultivating energy or “qi” for millennia.

Growing and using your qi is a skill that can be learned by anyone.

Regardless of your reasons for being drawn to tai chi, other internal arts, qigong, yoga or meditation, the benefits you can experience are entirely based upon the quality of your practice. The quality of your practice is governed by the depth and effectiveness of the material you train. Having an adept teacher to guide you through the process is essential to understanding what is possible and how to achieve it. I diligently searched all over the world for the very best teachers that I could find because I wanted the most in-depth, comprehensive and pure instruction possible.

I was incredibly fortunate that I was able to seek out and learn from some of the most brilliant masters of the modern era. My primary teacher, Grandmaster Liu, passed down to me the complete teachings of the Taoist Sage Lao Tzu, which come from a rare and authentic lineage, known as the Water Tradition, and which has been transmitted in a unbroken chain, from teacher to student, for millennia. It has been my life’s mission to share the precious and potentially life-shifting ancient knowledge that I received in the East here in the West.

Energy Arts Live makes it possible for you to take part in the classes offered at my center in Colorado from the comfort of your own home. You can live stream classes online or download classes as it fits with your flow to study with me and my Senior Instructors, and join with students from all across the globe.

Everything furthers,
Bruce Frantzis

 

“The smooth, balanced flow of qi—your life-force energy—is the single most important determinant to your health, vitality and happiness.”
– Master Bruce Frantzis

Weekly Classes

Wu Style Tai Chi Long Form


All Students Welcome
Learn the Wu Long Form with Tai Chi Lineage Holder Bruce Frantzis, which includes teachings on generating vibrant health and healing. The movements of tai chi exercise every muscle, ligament, tendon and joint of the body, while increasing balance, blood circulation and qi development. The smooth, flowing, continuous motions create a deep sense of relaxation, which lulls the nerves and mind into a state of let go. For these reasons and more, the Wu style is particularly practiced as a form of moving meditation and for healing.

What You Will Learn

You will learn the Wu Long Form from Cross Hands, where Master Frantzis left off in the Winter Session. His main focus is on delving into the deep internal aspects of training tai chi and which create the positive health and healing benefits.

 As traditionally taught, Master Frantzis demonstrates martial applications for each move in order to help students understand how movements are constructed to create power.

 Each class will begin with a follow-along practice of the moves covered to-date in order to get in the flow and warm up the body.

 Saturdays, 10:00-11:30 am –  Instruction by Master Bruce Frantzis

Tuesdays, 5:30-6:30 pm – Review and guided practice by Senior Instructor Craig Barnes


 

Foundational Qigong: Level 3

Recommended for All Students
Qigong systematically develops effortless power right from the start. In this class, new students will learn how to build the necessary foundation for health and longevity with an in-depth exploration of the core qigong skills fundamental to all Taoist arts, including standing, sitting, breathing and moving practices. Since each class focuses on a systematic breakdown of the principles and component exercises, existing students have the opportunity to refine and hone their technique, which can then be applied to more advanced qigong sets, internal arts forms, yoga and meditation.

What You Will Learn
This module has been designed to give students the necessary skills to generate an effective practice and allow them to more easily integrate any other aspect of our system, including advanced qigong, tai chi, hsing-i, bagua, yoga and meditation. 

Topics to be covered in this class:
Standing alignments
Standing postures
Sitting alignments
Breathing – both in posture and while moving
Qigong Circling Hands – with circles on all three planes of motion.

Paul will explore the depths of these critical aspects of neigong training in order to generate and refine a strong foundation for all qigong practices.

Saturdays, 9:00-10:00 am –  Instruction by Senior Instructor Paul Cavel

A Foundational Qigong Instructor Training will be offered at the Energy Arts Training Center, July 17-23, 2022, which will give prospective teachers an opportunity to become certified in the Energy Arts System.

 

Heaven and Earth Qigong

Intermediate Level Class
This session will focus on unifying and balancing the body, and integrating the material taught on Heaven and Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands in previous sessions.

What You Will Learn
Craig will cover the following components practices and neigong:
-Reviewing and refining the movements of both Circling Hands Qigong and Heaven and Earth Qigong.
-The breathing pattern for Heaven and Earth Qigong.
-Unifying the spine and generating the C-curve.
-Pulsing – moving forward with this profound neigong.

With these refinements and additions, the movements of Circling Hands and Heaven and Earth Qigong become smooth, effective and efficient forms for training neigong, and create the ability to heal from old injuries and attain vibrant health.

Saturdays, 1:00-2:00 pm – Instruction by Senior Instructor Craig Barnes

 

 

Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong (German with English translation)

All Students Welcome
Gods Playing in the Clouds Qigong is one of the deepest and most effective Taoist rejuvenation practices as it can contain all 16 neigong. Although Gods Qigong is an advanced qigong set, even new students can gain benefit from learning this essential qigong set.

 This class will be taught in German with an English translation available.

What You Will Learn
Building upon the previous session, Senior Instructors Ralph and Elisabeth will refine and deepen the fundamentals of the Gods Qigong form. The main focus will be on connecting up the body to produce unified movement, which will be achieved mainly via bending and stretching of the soft tissues, and integration of the kwa and spine.

Within the six movements, Taoist natural breathing will also be taught to increase the release of the nerves, relaxation of the body, and circulation of blood and qi.

Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30 pm (MT) – Instruction by Senior Instructors Ralph Heber and Elisabeth Wörsing

Thursdays, 12:30-1:00 pm (MT) – Guided practice by Senior Instructor Ralph Heber or Elisabeth Wörsing

 

Bagua Walking and Energy Postures

All Students Welcome
The walking postures within bagua are derived from the 200 standing postures that are held within the Taoist Water Tradition. Master Frantzis will build upon the foundation set out in the previous bagua sessions. That said, new students will have the opportunity to build each posture from the ground up, while existing students will learn how to layer in new elements to upgrade their skill set.

What You Will Learn

You will learn profound neigong methods within Circle Walking and bagua’s energy postures to:
Produce power in your body.
Increase both qi flow and development.
Stabilize and open your mind.

These techniques are essential for developing a deep and truly internal bagua practice. The material presented here will naturally fold into or prepare you for learning all eight palm changes, aka “The Eight Mother Palms.”

Tuesdays, 6:30-7:30 pm – Instruction by Master Bruce Frantzis

Sundays, 9:00-10:00 am – Review and guided practice by Senior Instructor Paul Cavel

 

Bagua Circle Walking and Single Palm Change

All Students Welcome
This class will serve as a review of Master Frantzis’s energy postures class and an introduction to, or continuing development of, the Single Palm Change.

The Single Palm Change, along with Circle Walking and energy postures, is both the foundation and the container for the whole bagua system. Holding postures and practicing the Single Palm Change while Walking the Circle trains the ability to contact and move energy throughout the body in order to release the nerves, and build incredible strength and flexibility.

 What You Will Learn
In this class, you will learn all the fundamentals of bagua including: footwork, turning, arm movements and how to connect the body into one, coherent whole.

 The main aim of this session is to give students a solid grounding in Circle Walking and the Single Palm Change to generate a truly internal bagua practice. Various training methods will be used in order to bring alive the critical neigong required for bagua to become a superlative movement art that delivers vibrant health, strength and abundant qi.

 This class will help you develop the skills necessary to join Master Frantzis’ Single Palm Change classes in future sessions.

 Sundays, 9:00-10:00 am – Instruction by Senior Instructor Paul Cavel

Taoist Meditation

All Students Welcome
Taoist Meditation uses four primary meditation methods to dissolve blockages:
The physical body
Visualization
Vibration
Light.

 The Water Tradition of Lao Tzu is a specific branch of meditation that trains practitioners in pragmatic methods to delve deeply inside themselves, cope with stress, and flow smoothly through challenging moments and times. 

What You Will Learn
You will learn techniques, such as the Inner Dissolving Method, to achieve a higher state of awareness and develop the skills to apply your experience to living a more vibrant, peaceful and fulfilling life.

 Master Frantzis will work through various Taoist Meditation practices to release blockages, so that you can become clearer and healthier in body, mind and qi.

 The primary focus will be on how to direct the subconscious mind to contact and transform that which is inside you. From a Taoist perspective, when you release all that is false or conditioned, whatever remains must be true to your essence. This is the path.

 Tuesdays, 7:30-8:00 pm – Instruction by Master Bruce Frantzis

Saturdays, 2:00-2:30 pm – Review and guided practice by Senior Instructor Craig Barnes 

Review and Guided Practices

Regular practice is the cornerstone of getting the most out of instruction on Taoist arts. You will have the opportunity to review and train the material presented in instructional classes led by Master Frantzis and his Senior Instructors, and follow along with guided practices led by knowledgeable Certified Energy Arts Instructors as an integral part of the Energy Arts Live program.

Join a genuine Master’s school…

Energy Arts Live allows you to join us in the training hall here in Colorado from wherever you are.

Whether you are a new or dedicated student, connecting with experienced teachers from a genuine lineage can make all the difference in how much you get back from your practice.

Fluent in Chinese and Japanese, Master Bruce Frantzis spent 16 years of full-time study in China, Japan, India, Taiwan, and throughout Asia learning directly from some of the most skillful masters on the planet in their native language.

He was the first American to become certified to teach tai chi outside of China by the Beijing Physical Culture Association. He later became one of the only recognized Western lineage masters in the world, authoring 15 books on Taoist energy arts and meditation.

You will learn directly from Master Frantzis and his Senior Instructors, each with decades of teaching and practice experience. This level of study is rarely available outside of China. Even if you made the trip, it would be next to impossible to find a skilled teacher willing to share many of the deeper techniques that give internal arts their power to heal and make you vital and alive.

Energy Arts Live broadcasts inner-door teachings to a worldwide  community.  You will have opportunities to ask questions via the chat feature or live audio to refine and improve what you know, and advance along your path.

“Truly being healthy—energetic fitness—is not about how you look; it’s about how you feel. It’s about making your body, mind and spirit work together as a team”
– Master Bruce Frantzis
