Foundations of Daoist Alchemy: Online

Foundations of Daoist Alchemy is designed to introduce students to the theory and terminology needed to traverse the path of Daoist Alchemy. 

This is an online class that is part of our online "Introduction to Daoist Alchemy" series.

September 25 & 26, 2021
2:00-5:00 pm  Central Time held via Zoom

Foundational theory:

  • Introduction to the Three Treasures: Heaven, Earth, and Man.
  • The philosophical and physical correlations of each of the Three Treasures.
  • Understanding the Earth’s Yin and Yang Interactions with Heaven.
  • Basic terminology used in energetic anatomy and physiology.
  • Prenatal and Postnatal Jing, Qi and Shen.
  • Discussion of Nature (Xing 性) and Destiny (Ming 命).
  • Developing an understanding of the body's physical, emotional, mental and energetic relationship to the universal and environmental energetic fields.

Participants in the Foundations of Daoist Alchemy will also be guided through practices that allow them to have a direct experience and draw from the energies of the sun and moon. The sense of connection developed during this process allows the novitiate to draw on universal energies that were previously inaccessible.

Important Information about Online Classes

  • Important Info about all Online and Zoom Classes

    These events are LIVE only!
    Please note that all of our Zoom classes are LIVE events. Participants will not have access to recordings of the training for later use.
    There are many reasons for this. We are a very traditional school. We are used to teaching energetic medicine and cultivation to people with a wide range of experiences. We do this by teaching traditionally and experientially. We offer information, describe practices, and then have you experience those practices or skills. Dr. Shannon has always offered this experientially training in our onsite Medical Qigong and Daoist programs. He offers this same experience through Zoom. When you attend a seminar with Dr. Shannon, you are not just receiving information. You are receiving a transmission. In order to receive that transmission, you need to be there, with us, as the teaching occurs. Something special happens in that shared space.

    Refund Policy for Zoom Classes
    If you are unable to attend a Zoom training session with us, you must notify us at least 24 hours prior to the training in order to receive a refund. Many events will allow you to cancel automatically from your Confirmation Email.  This must be done at least 24 hours prior to the event.
    Refunds consist of the cost of the training minus a handling fee. This fee helps us recover the costs that PayPal charges us for processing both the payment and the refund. For US students, the refund handling fee is $20. For international students, it is $30.
