Introduction to Internal Alchemy of Posture

Introduction to Internal Alchemy of Posture

This is an online class that is part of our online "Introduction to Daoist Alchemy" series.
No experience required, this class is open to all interested participants.

October 23 & 24
2:00-5:00 pm Central Standard Time held via Zoom

Daoist Alchemy is the evolution of the body, mind, and spirit. It is a progressive science, divided into different realms of practice: Heaven, Earth, and Man. As one progresses with deep listening, this science becomes an art.

This transformation begins with the levels of Man, progresses through Earth, and concludes as one traverses the levels of Heaven.

In this seminar, we will delve into the level of Man through the Alchemy of Posture. Posture is the first regulation of Qigong, and thus, it is the first pillar of Daoist alchemy. It is the foundation upon which all training is built. Without a solid foundation no house can stand.

As posture comes into alignment, the imbalances of yin and yang within channels and organs are remediated, blockages eliminated, balance is restored, and a continual flow between Heaven and Earth achieved.

Correctly aligned posture allows not only for the balancing of yin and yang, but the transcendence thereof. Through the proper implementation of posture, it is possible to dissolve into the infinite space of Wuji.


If posture is correct,
the breath is deep,
the mind is clear.


In this seminar we will cover:

  • 18 Rules of Posture
  • Postural modifications to activate and regulate the meridians
  • Proper posture for sitting meditation
  • Finding and remediating structural imbalances
  • Body Breathing
  • Increasing flow between Heaven and Earth.

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.
