Welcome to the Shaolin Strength and Longevity Qi Gong practice.

The next eight months will be filled with new ways to interact with your connective tissues, your embodiment, and the imminent stillness of your bones.

The Yi Jin Jing process, or the transformational process of restoring all of your connective tissues, is one of the most physically and mentally demanding forms of Qi Gong in the world.

That does not make this practice hard to learn, it just asks for your complete involvement – in a few different ways – at the same time!

Originally, the earliest forms of this practice that I have found were based on a series of incremental contractions and releases, as well as several internal and structural principles. These principles can be applied to almost any posture, position, or ‘stretch.’

Over the last 1500 years, these principles have been refined and more clearly defined, both in practice by the Shaolin monks, and along with the development of Traditional Chinese medicine and the understanding of the meridian system.

In the last 200 years, this practice has coalesced into a complete system of physical rejuvenation, mind/body reunion, and almost guaranteed longevity.

I am very excited to begin (or complete) this training with you. I have loved training with commitment and purpose most of my life, and now that I am 55 years old, I have an invested personal interest in going in-depth into this practice.

This Saturday, March 18th, at 9:00 am PST, we will begin with a 90-minute webinar on the Yi Jin Jing system of practice, its earliest origins, and the astounding scientific evidence of what is measurably changing with your entire body – each step of the way. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

On Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 6:00 pm PST, we will begin learning some joint opening and tissue exploring exercises, and then we will dive into the principles, the tensegrity form and routine, and establish an optimal weekly routine.

Registration is Open until April 29th

This brings us back to your connective tissue. The more toned and pliable (transformed and restored – Yi ) the ‘fabric’ of your body is, and each meridian/channel is, perhaps the more authentically and completely you can experience your existence. As well, if the warp and weft of your meridians are optimized, your Qi flow and Qi capacity (volume) will also improve and increase.

The character for Jīn describes the function, nature, and ‘bamboo-like’ makeup of all of your contractile tissues, connective tissues, muscles, tendons, ligaments, your fascia, myofascial layers, as well as your interstitial filaments. Your fascia alone makes up 20% of your body weight. Your Jin is understood to be an expression of your Jing (Essence) through your Liver. This Liver Jing, from a scientific perspective, would be mostly made of your ability to create collagen and the stem cells in your interstitium.

This ancient and holistic longevity practice is usually described as a transformation of your muscles and tendons. This is because the Yi Jin Jing process will make you very strong, and very fast, without building massive muscles. In the West, most people who seek out this skill are martial artists who want to become as strong, fast, and as dangerous as the monks from the famous Shaolin Monastery.

That is how I initially learned this system 35 years ago. At first, it was all about strength, speed, and power!

It was only years later when I was shown a much more subtle and complete approach to this practice, that I came to understand the potential for longevity, coherence, and a conscious and Universal connection.

If you want to get stronger and almost certainly live longer, the Yi Jin Jing asks you to commit some time and resources to Yi (guiding the transformation process), returning your Jin (connective tissues) to their natural capacity and form, as an expression of the pure fabric of your body Jing , and potentially the fabric of Reality.

As a longevity practice, this approach to Qi Gong practice is very effective, simply because the number one indicator of a long life is retaining lean muscle mass.

As a spiritual practice, cultivating refined and open channels, or ‘meridian antennas,’ is a very potent doorway into a more Universal and innately present experience of consciousness.
