Flying Phoenix Qigong (3 days) with Master Terry Dunn
Workshop No.3: Flying Phoenix Qigong (3 days)
October 24 – 27 (starts Thursday 7pm; ends Sunday noon)
Flying Phoenix Qigong with Master Terry Dunn is a 3-day immersive workshop that teaches Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations (Fei Feng San Gung), a rare and extraordinarily powerful medical Qigong system that was created more than 400 years ago by renowned Taost monk Feng Dao Deh of Ehrmeishan. In this workshop, you will learn this complete Taoist monastic system of hygienics –comprised of standing and seated, stationary and moving meditations that imparts a wide range of salient health benefits with remarkable swiftness: increased respiratory power, improved circulation and metabolism, higher energy levels, improved neuro-muscular function and balance, peak immunity, increased bone strength, and the allostatic reversal of many signs of aging.
Flying Phoenix Qigong imparts its remarkable health benefits through a yogic mechanism that brings all the organ functions of the body under the regulation of the subconscious mind. This super-regulating process and energy cultivation is brought on by each of the 24 Flying Phoenix Meditations, which consists of (A) an easy-to-do breath-control formula followed by (B) a meditation in repose or a serene moving meditation using repetitive natural movements that are done three times slower than typical Tai Chi practice. The esoteric breathing formula that precedes each Flying Phoenix meditation ignites a specific flow of Qi in the body that is tangible; the following posture and movements circulate the energy through specific orbs of the body. Flying Phoenix Qigong is easier to learn and practice than Tai Chi and its health benefits are tangible, profound, and more immediate. Long term Flying Phoenix practice activates man’s latent healing potential and cultivates a superabundance of the distinctively tangible and visible Flying Phoenix Energy (Qi) that has extraordinary healing properties unlike any type of energy generated by any other form of Yoga.
Besides imparting its splendid health benefits, Flying Phoenix Qigong integrates mind and body so deeply that it develops highest structural sensitivity that imbues the practitioner with deepest levels of jhanic absorption (concentration) that naturally carries over into any other form or mode of meditation, making it deeper and more comfortable and blissful.
Unlike so many “modern” qigong methods, Flying Phoenix Qigong practice requires no visualization whatsoever. Only the combination of unique Flying Phoenix breathwork and perfect natural movements activates the body’s self-healing faculties Ω by bringing all the organ functions of the body under the regulation of the subconscious mind. Because FP practice imparts tangible energizing and rejuvenating effects that are lasting and transformative within 35 minutes of practice, the universal comment by beginners after two hours of FP Qigong practice is: “I cannot believe that a human being could have created this art.”

He is also the sole seventh generation preserver in the world of Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Chi Kung (“Fei Feng San Gong”) created by Taoist monk Feng Dao Deh in 1644 at Ehrmeishan.
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 Qigong instructional program in the English language. Beginning students coming to the workshops are urged to practice to the CKFH series beforehand to get a running start.
Terry is also an advanced practitioner of Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan in the lineage of Prof. Cheng Man-ching since 1980. For the past 7 years, he has been the student of Grandmaster William C.C. Chen. He had previously studied from the late Master Abraham Liu from 1980 to 1992. 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 still the most successful and top-selling instructional Tai Chi DVD programs in the English language.

Because of the great interest in Qigong in the west, it is important to have bona fide teachings by bona fide teachers. Too often students wind up learning a little bit of this form and a little bit of another, while never learning any complete system. This series is a good example of a serious and gifted instructor who offers a complete system of healing qigong to the serious student.

This is a great practice for body, mind and spirit. It is holy; it is healthful; it is scientific. Yet, there are no words. Just do the movements, memorize the movements, do the breathing exercises before. Do not argue, do not think. Just do, and you will see results. How did the ancient Chinese discover this?

You have been in my thoughts a great deal, as one of the teachers who has, in my post-academic phase, shown me the very physical, kinetic component of bliss or enlightenment. The early Buddhist scriptures speak of “touching Nirvana with your body.” I now understand what this means due ot the effects of your instruction in Chi Kung. I am mainly working with the exercises in your Volume 5 video, which were included in Minnesota. Such simplicity and profound subtlety!
Frederic Underwood, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus of Indo-Tibetan Studies, Department of Religion, Columbia Unversity
Outstanding. On a scale of 1-10, I score it a 12+!! Extremely informative, practical and significantly energizing.
–Dr. Gordon Mayfield, Madison, WI
I can already feel the benefits and am inspired to do more. It can be a meaningful process in my life as long as I practice. I have very skilled tools to do that now.
–Pat Nolan, Wabasha, MN
Just excellent. Terry’s emersion in the subject is obvious. A pleasure and privilege to study with him.
–Dr. Gene M. Gudmundson, White Sulphur Springs, MT
Very Good. As a new comer to chi kung, I found the instruction very easy to follow and felt the effects immediately. Thank you so much for sharing your gift.

Hi Terry, I really appreciated the Flying Phoenix class you taught in May in Minneapolis. I am impressed with the results so far. I had worked on your tapes before the class and found the class very interesting and am loving the extra insight to Flying Phoenix. By practicing the seated meditations or standing exercises, I have noticed a tremendous increase in my energy level and health. The increase is more marked with the seated exercises. The exercises just seemed to bring all my other training together and strengthen them. It was a real find for me…just what I was looking for.

Dear Terry, Thanks again for coming to St. Paul and teaching the Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations. As a novice when it comes to the field of Chi-Kung, I wondered if everything would be over my head. What I experienced was a workshop that was very accessible. Even though my mind and body wavered at times, I really enjoyed the intense work and I’m glad you were able to teach everything on your videos. At the workshop I began to experience some of the benefits that go along with the meditations and I know in the years to come the healing benefits will increase. I would like to wish you well with the Flying Phoneix workshops, Terry. I would recommend it to anyone interested in healing mind, body, soul, and spirit.

Outstanding in most respects, well worth the time, travel and money invested–all kinds of cool stuff to work on.

This weekend has been the beginning of my life long journey and has affected me profoundly. Thank you for making this system of chi kung available.
— Jim Margis, River Falls, WI
Terry, Bravo! Your “Flying Phoenix Heavenly healing Meditations” weekend workshop in St. Paul was superb! I believe that these Chi Kung exercises will prove invaluable for helping me balance and cultivate my energy. You have a real gift as a teacher, as evidenced by a thorough knowledge of the art, and the ability to transmit the material to your students. I plan to order your videotapes on the Meditations, as a reference for my practice. Thanks, again.

Dear Mr. Dunn,
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you doing the Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations seminar. I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and went away feeling as if I just found a buried treasure. These were three of the most profound days of my life. The series of Flying Phoenix meditations you taught were extremely powerful and yielded immediate benefits. The sensation of energy being cultivated and moving through my body after such a short period of time is very exciting.
This system of chi kung is of universal benefit and I hope people in the health and martial arts professions realize its tremendous value. They too will surely benefit by adding it to their current practices. I will continue to utilize these exercises for my own health and well being as well as the benefit of my staff and students downt he road. I know they will be just as excited as myself when they experience the benefits of this powerful system.
I feel very fortunate to have been at the seminar and received so much benefit from your teaching and this system of energy cultivation. It was a truly a pleasure learning from you and I can’t thank you enough for this gift of knowledge. It really is a treasure.
Sincerely and Gratefully,
