Student Commentary from 1st Intense 3 Week Workshops (11/10/13) by The Professor:
* The Professor's intense three-week course was an insightful first introduction to the broad Universal Healing Tao System for me. The variety of Taoist meditations and practices taught in this course gave me a perfect overview over Inner Alchemy as taught by Mantak Chia. Through a good mixture of practical exercises, theoretical and conceptual framework, repetition modules as well as practice time with a partner everybody in class could pick up a lot in a relatively short time.

* Thanks for your teachings and guidance for the whole retreat, it is greatly appreciated. The biggest take away for me from the retreat is the "spaced repetition" practices you implemented into the daily lessons. Adding the new lesson learnt everyday into the daily practices we do every morning and eventually building it into a two hour sequence of practices on the last day of the retreat was very helpful to me. This retreat has provided me a very good platform to practice with like-minded individuals.
By myself, I could only read the detailed instructions in the books and watch videos of Master Chia teaching. But nothing beats being able to take time off my daily commitments and distractions, to be able to spend 3 quality weeks, just doing the practices every day during the lessons. Personally, I very much prefer this way of learning rather than some of the trainings I've attended previously, where the trainer would give a very detailed and informative presentation but having much less time to practice for the participants. I totally agree with you that we can get the information and details we need from the books or the chi cards ourselves and cultivating the seeds of practice is the most important take away at the end of the day. Thank you so much for creating such an intensive practice platform for me. It is the perfect complement with the details and information from the books I've brought along to the retreat. I strongly recommend this course to people who would like to maximize their time during the retreat to hone their skills with more practice sessions rather than be bombarded with lots of concepts and details of the course which you can simply read yourself during your free time. I've had a very fruitful retreat. I'm looking forward to more such retreats in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Professor’s weeklong course on Fusion Meditation. The Inner Alchemy was definitely active within me, and continues to shine strongly as my Canadian friends immediately recognize this new inner strength. I’ve discovered it’s a lot easier to live every day in the Tao and this has greatly enhanced my current practices of Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Chi Nei Tsang.
The Professor explained new Concepts with ease and was understood by all students. There was a good mix of physical exercises, theory and meditative practices. The best part was daily repetition of meditations to create a strong foundation to practice Fusion anywhere, anytime. I really enjoyed his lecture’s, they were straight up, honest and well timed. I would recommend this Fusion Meditation to either novice or advanced student. I am motivated to continue The Professors’ daily Fusion practices and look forward to his future courses.

* I really enjoyed the 1st week of Chi Kung. I have been practicing the Iron Shirt and Tendon Nei Kung most mornings. I also like to use the Wire Hitter. The 2nd week was very interesting though at this point in my life I am not doing this type of advanced meditation. I was a bit disappointed that I missed out on the Tai Chi week but no worries maybe in the future.
Michael (43), -USA
* I found the structure and the teaching very constructive and concise so as to have a clear practice about Iron Shirt Chi Kung, Healing Sounds, Fusion of 5 Elements, Tai Chi, Bone Marrow Nei Kung and much more. I was impressed how well the whole group could repeat every day the whole series of formulas which was developing and increasing day by day. The knowledge and experience that The Professor has is vast on the Tao through the teachings of the Universal Healing Tao. He was direct down to the point for what and how to learn the material as well as patient for the whole group to practice. It was clear to me that he uses and lives the Tao daily and that is what inspired me the most; to live and practice the Tao in all aspect of everyday life, profession, career, family, with friends and with strangers as well. I have been practicing ever since which has been a great development in my daily energy work & meditation formulas.
