Primordial Limitless Gate Lineage of Taoism

with Dr. Eva Wong

September 18 - 22


Karme Choling is happy to announce this special invitation direct from Dr. Eva Wong:


Limitless Gate QigongI would like to invite you to a new 4-day program that integrates streams of disciplines that define the qigong, meditation, and philosophy of Primordial Limitless Gate Taoism.

As we emerge from a pandemic that has limited travel and personal gatherings, I want to present a special program that allows us to gather, reconnect, and welcome new participants in a safe way.

Some of you have experienced the health benefits from qigong. Some have begun to explore the Taoist philosophy that is the basis of the arts of health and longevity. Others have brushed the limitless nature of consciousness through Taoist meditation. And for some of you, this will be the first time you will be introduced into my Taoist lineage.

Here’s what we will do in our 4 days together:

An in-depth practice of Qigong Levels 1 and 2

In Qigong 1 are forms that introduce the essence of qigong practice - self massage, bone marrow washing, and calisthenics. We will explore how each of these forms can be used to enhance and repair muscular-skeletal functions, align energy channels, and build tendon and bone strength.

In Qigong 2, we practice and explore two of the most potent qigong systems: The 9 Self Massage System and the 12 Tendon-Changing System. The 9 Self Massage System is specifically designed to open energy blockages, stimulate energy centers, and guide the flow of energy in the body. The 12 Tendon-Changing System is one of the most effective forms of qigong that can be used to increase spinal mobility and strength, and introduce overall flexibility and strength to ligaments, muscles, and tendons.

An introduction to methods of meditation that are unique to the Primordial Limitless Gate lineage.

The cultivation of the physical and energetic body builds the foundation of the cultivation of mind. Meditation provides us with a consciousness that makes the body safe for gathering and storing internal energy. Qi, or internal energy, feeds whatever arises in consciousness. What arises - be it anger, kindness, fear, and even wisdom - are all intensified by qi. It is therefore important for us not just to cultivate qi, but be aware of what is arising in our consciousness every moment. Primordial Limitless Gate meditation can help us become aware of what arises, and show us how to protect qi from being drained or used to feed negativity.

Discussions of Taoist philosophy

No training in Taoism can be complete without understanding the philosophical outlook that inspired the arts of health, longevity, and mental well-being. How we view the world, relate to others, balance our worldly and spiritual life, and contribute to the welfare of all form the essence of Taoist philosophy. I will present highlights of the Taoist outlook from my various translations of Taoist classics that are both profound and practical.
Come share 4 days of qigong, meditation, and discussion of Taoist philosophy with me.

Together we will nourish the body, expand our consciousness, and glimpse the mysterious world of Taoism.

I look forward to seeing you all.
