The “Intensive Inner Alchemy Longmen Jinhua 2012” seminar will be held during 05-14 of April 2012 by Longmenpai Europe in China, at the
An Bo location north of Dalian, Liaoning provinceThe Daoist Temple of Immortal Huang in Jinhua, Zhejiang province, with the participation of Grandmaster Wang Liping, the current transmitter of Longmen ( Dragon Gate ) branch of the Taoist school of Complete Reality. The seminar will be held in Chinese language, and will be translated in English language.
During this seminar students can deepen their knowledge of Inner Alchemy practices of the Longmen school. The practice includes moving exercises ( Taoist walking - zi ran huan qi fa and tree energy exchange – ping heng gong ), as well as sitting techniques ( such as movement of five organs - mo yun wu xing ) and sleeping techniques ( shui gong ). Since this is an advanced seminar, participants are requested to have knowledge about and to have practiced Longmen arts before.
The daily practice is more than 8 hours long, evenly distributed during the day.
Goals and benefits
The major objective of Inner Alchemy is the survival of the consciousness, and its independence before and after leaving the physical body. Even though the possibility of reaching this goal can be subject of dispute, it is an undeniable fact that students will benefit the radical transformation of the physical, psychic and mental bodies, especially after such an advanced training.
Practitioners can obtain these immediate benefits:
- Further opening of the meridians, main channels and important points in palms and head, removing more difficult energetically blockages, clearing the bloodstream.
- Purifying of own qi, increasing the jing, qi and shen.
- Removal of unwanted reincarnation energy and replenish it with fresh and more suitable reincarnation energy from trees.
- Balancing the universal, reincarnation and body energies
- Amplification of both energetic and mental fields (aura)
- The possibility of opening of the third eye ( and Golden Flower visualization ) ( see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Secret_of_the_Golden_Flower)
On the long term, given home continuous practice, the participants will be able to:
- Easily meditate for 150 minutes and more
- Increase the qi and shen storage capacity of the dantians
- Increase self-awareness, avoid critical and dangerous events in everyday life
- Define and use the new perceptions regarding organs and internal body structure, especially the inner visualization power
- Increase the sensitivity of perceiving and handling the qi and shen
After the seminar
After the seminar the participants will have a coherent method for home practice and can also attend the periodic practice sessions held by the European students (such retreats were organized before in Romania). These practice sessions are mostly free, with small expenses caused by meeting arrangements (practice place rental – when applicable).
The home practice and the group practice sessions have the goal of sustaining and extending the benefits gained, until the next year seminar in Europe.

We were announced today that the location of the seminar changed for the better to the Daoist Temple of Immortal Huang in Jinhua, Zhejiang province. There are 3 famous caverns where immortals Huang Chuping, Huang Chuqi practiced, also Lu Dongbin practiced there. We will do various practices beside meditation plus meditation practice in some of the caverns. Accomodation will be provided inside the temple, we still have no information about price changes if any. Weather will be warmer than Dalian at the seminar time.
Internal flights should end at Hangzhou. From Europe KLM operates direct flights to Hangzhou. From Hangzhou to Jinhua transportation will be made by bus. Students will be expected in Hangzhou by Lian Lihua or Shanghai by Kathy Li. Transportation from Shanghai to Jinhua can be made by train.
Students can stay for few days longer in the temple in order to visit the place. In case anybody is interested to do that, Lian offers to stay there and show them the place.
We appologise for the students that already booked the international flights or internal flights to Dalian. Please try to change the internal flights to Hangzhou, flights inside China are normally very easy to change for free at such long time in advance before the flight. Your travel agent should be able to assist you with that.
