About the Course:

This four-day seminar provides you with a practical repertoire of authentic tools to transform afflictive emotions, resolve physical aliments, and powerfully support spiritual development. In addition, students will develop a clear, cognitive understanding of the theory behind these techniques. This seminar is the first in a multi-level training program offering advancement to teaching status.

The teachings and practices offered in this course are based on the 800-year-old Emei Linji Chan Lineage of the Sino-Tibetan borderland—ancient knowledge, some of which has only become available to the lay population in the last ten years.

A senior student of Emei Lineage Head, Grandmaster Fu Weizhong since 1995, and student of Emei methods since 1985, Devatara Holman has been granted the privilege of offering these teachings and is making them available in our community. She lived in the border region of China and Tibet for seven years during the 1980’s, where she began her study of Buddhist medicine and the integration of medicine and spiritual practices. She has dedicated her life to increasing awareness of the benefits of Buddhist medicine and the wisdom of the Emei Linji Chan Lineage.

Topics to be Covered:

This course will involve lecture, still and moving practices for healing oneself, and hands-on practice for healing self and others. Areas to be covered in this course include:

  • Brief History of the Emei Linji Chan Lineage
  • What is Qigong?
  • Wuji Gong instruction and practice – this is the fundamental movement form designed to establish balance in the physical body and the psycho-spiritual aspects of our being. It establishes a strong familiarity with the non-dual refuge that is available to all of us.
  • Contraindications, Time and Place for Wuji Practice
  • Feeling Qi and Testing Our Perception of Qi
  • The Emei Qigong View of the Universe
  • Qi Information in All Things
  • Using Empowered Objects for Self-Healing
  • Elements of Qi Information Healing
  • The Emei Qigong View of Human Illness
  • Self-Healing Meditation with:
  • Healing Sounds
  • Empowered Objects
  • Sitting Meditation
  • Group Healing – This will be performed on Sunday evening and participants are encouraged to bring family and friends. The power of this kind of healing is greatly amplified by larger numbers of people participating. There is a $30 per person fee for this healing which is not included in the seminar tuition.
  • Understanding the Concept of Yin and Yang
  • Taiji – A Simplified, In-depth Explanation
  • Cognitive Understanding of Wuji, the Non-dual Reality
  • How to Sustain Happiness
  • The Human Body Life Energy Field
  • A Layman’s View of Karma
  • On Gathering External Qi
  • On Detecting and Identifying Diseases via the Physical Senses
  • Methods to Transfer and Clear Afflictive Emotional States and Disease – Many healing methods are effective for treating illnesses, but they are temporary. They suppress the illness only for a time, but do not eradicate the root cause of the illness. As a result, when the conditions are right, the illness will reactivate. The subsequent illnesses tend to be more severe and more difficult to treat than they were initially. The self-healing method to transfer and clear diseases eradicates illness at its root, transfers it to out of the body and completely neutralizes it. This practice extinguishes and dissolves diseased energy information.
  • Patterns of Disease Qi Dispersal and Absorption of Universal Qi
  • Secrets of Qi Information Healing Abilities
  • Qi Transmission Methods
  • Universal Mantra Qi Transmission
  • Methods to Clear Diseases in Others
