Master Terence Dunn
The Taoist Elixir Method (Tao Tan Pai Basic 31), is a complete ancient Taoist system of moving meditation and breath control. It imparts good health, vitality, and personal empowerment by coordinating eyes, mind, movement, and breath. According to an alchemic formula this practice opens the heart, clears and focuses the mind, and profoundly strengthens the body. The health benefits of Tao Tan Pai practice are improved circulation, respiration, digestion, metabolism, posture, balance, flexibility, neuromuscular coordination, sound and restful sleep, as well as effective stress management. During this workshop, students learn the 15 standing/16 seated meditations; the Short Form Power Yoga, consisting of five of the 31 meditations, designed for daily practice.
Note: Practitioners of all authentic Indian and Tibetan systems of yoga and meditation can use Tao Tan Pai Basic 31 to supplement, ground, and elevate their respective practices.

Master Terence Dunn is the sole 7th generation preserver of Ehrmei Mountain Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong, the extraordinary medical Qigong system created by Taoist sage Feng Dao Deh in 1644 that is the subject of this workshop. He has also studied Tai Chi Ch’uan since 1980 with three Taiwan-trained senior students of Prof. Cheng Man-Ching: the late Master Abraham Liu for 12 years, the late Master Benjamin Lo for 12 consecutive summer retreats, and the great William C.C. Chen for the past 7 years.
In 1989, he produced two 2-hour video programs, Tai Chi For Health Long Form (108) and Tai Chi For Health Short Form (37), which today are the most successful and all-time best-selling instructional Tai Chi DVD programs in the English language–with sales of more than 8 million units. After 12 years of training and teaching Flying Phoenix Qigong, in 2004, Terry released the 6-volume Chi Kung For Health DVD series teaching the first level of the art. Today it is the top-selling and best-reviewed instructional Qigong program in the English language. (Beginning students coming to the workshops are urged to practice Volumes 1 and 2 of the CKFH series beforehand to hit the deck running at this workshop.)
Master Dunn has 44 years of experience in Chinese martial, yogic and healing arts and is a certified master instructor in Taoist Elixir Method (“Tao Tan Pai”) Kung Fu and Neikung, Ehrmei Mountain White Tiger (“Bok Fu Pai”) Kung Fu, Southern Shaolin Five Animals Kung Fu, and the legendary Eight Sections of Energy Combined Kung Fu. Educated at Yale College and the Harvard Business School, Terry is a gifted teacher, author and filmmaker who expresses an ecumenical vision in preserving some of the most rare and powerful ancient Chinese martial, healing, yogic , and spiritual traditions.
