Learn to tap into your chi!

The shaolin monks and nuns were legendary in their use of chi.  What is chi? It's the life-force energy of the universe. All living things have chi, but they don't necessary have the same levels of chi.

The monks and nuns knew this and developed a series of meditations that trained new students in how to quickly tap into chi, cultivate it, and circulate it throughout the body.

  • 14 unique sitting meditations
  • 18 unique standing meditations
  • Each meditation has it's own special advanced-level breathing pattern
  • Each meditation has a different hand posture basedon the martial arts

Who can learn these meditations? Almost anyone. They were designed for both the beginner and advanced students. 

If you practice yoga, Tai Chi, Zen, martial arts, you can follow in the footsteps of the Shaolin and readily adopt these meditations to your own practice. 

These meditations trace their lineage directly back to the Fukien Temple in China, one of the greatest and most legendary Shaolin Temples in history. The Shaolin Monks and Nuns used these meditations not just to enhance their chi but to heal themselves, increase their health and expand their longevity. 

The meditations form the basis of chi training in the temple. It taught students how to properly breathe, how to focus and concentrate, and it strengthened their body, mind and spirit. 

You, too, can learn what the Shaolin Masters knew and apply it to your own life.

About the Author

When he was just 8 years old, John wanted to be a monk on par with David Carradine's character in the TV series "Kung Fu." He spent his entire life training in the martial arts seeking to fulfil his goal. He started out in 1978 training in Isshinryu Karate under Grandmaster Willie Adams and went on to learn from such masters as Grandmaster Donald Bohan, Grandmaster Don Nagel and Grandmaster James Lacey. To this day he is still a student of Grandmaster Adams.

John is a Buddhist Monk and currently resides in a Buddhist Monastery under the Teacher Wisdom Master Maticintin.

John's intention is to pass what he's learned. He teaches students privately and writes books.
