The Vision of the Path
Chi Kung is an ancient practice with origins in China. Its history reveals many elaborations, but consistently a search to penetrate a state of health, longevity, and harmony. There is even Chi Kung with a shamanic and alchemical orientation whose aim
is “immortality”; in other words, achieving conscious integration of all bodies and thus generating the transcendent body of light!
Online Chi Kung for Healing, Transformation and Liberation: 7 Lotus Chi Kung is an energy management system based on several lineages -Taoism, Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhism, and Hindu Tantra. Its creator, Carlos de León, received the teachings and practices personally from exceptional masters in various Eastern and Western traditions.
7 Lotus Chi Kung combines postures, breathing and movement, complemented by methods such as visualization and vocalization, to offer a simple, very effective method to increase clarity, energy, awareness and good health.
There are 7 distinct levels in this Chi Kung system, each building on the capacity established previously and each producing its own quality of well-being. When this Chi Kung is practiced daily, or regularly, the body's energy system opens, strengthens, and develops. One of the immediate benefits of Chi Kung is the reduction of daily stress and tension.
Level 1 ~ First Lotus: Opening of basic channels, the energy centres in the hands and feet, cleansing & fortifying vital energy, improving relaxation and general health.
Level 2 ~ Opening & activating the main chakras, balancing the three doshas, stimulating new channels, and cultivating spiral Chi.
Level 3 ~ Third Lotus: Fortifying the muscles, increasing flexibility, detoxifying the body, loosening body structure, and balancing the cerebral hemispheres.
Level 4 ~ Fourth Lotus: Feeding the internal organs, improving health, strengthening the internal Chi, nourishing the physical body and internal organs.
Level 5 ~ Developing hot, cold, & spiral Chi, producing golden Chi, unifying energy with consciousness, and penetrating meditative states.
Level 6 ~ Sixth Lotus: Connecting with cosmic Chi, working with the principle of “Chi follows thought”, the opening of the 3rd eye, activating the immune system, and fortifying pre-natal Chi.
Level 7 ~ Seventh Lotus: Exchanging internal & external Chi with the 5 elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine, further strengthening the physical & energetic bodies, preparing for higher levels of spiritual connections.

Becoming a Certified 7 Lotus Chi Kung Instructor
A Live Intensive Training, facilitated by Tessy Bardavid and offered in a small residential group setting, for deep integration of the practice and theory of 7 Lotus Chi Kung. This program is aimed at creating instructors with the skills, energy, motivation, and right vision for sharing the practice one-on-one and/or with groups.
Proposed Dates for 2023 & 2024: To be confirmed (A minimum number of ten students is required for the Training to be offered in your country. The proposal is for a Week-Long Intensive.)
Under the guidance of Tessy Bardavid, each student practices as an instructor while fellow students observe and provide feedback. By engaging in this way, the deepest aspects of the training process are explored experientially, the technique is polished, and one’s grasp on the components of 7 Lotus Chi Kung & the Foundational Principles of Ontogony, is both strengthened and refined.
Objectives for Integration and Expansion: in terms of experience, depth, and clarity regarding the practice, theory, didactics, and necessary tools to be a qualified 7 Lotus Chi Kung Instructor.
Vision for the 7 Lotus Instructor Training:
- The 7 lotus Teacher’s Training is ideal for deepening your own growth process;
- Kung practice inspires us to connect with our true nature; where life acquires a taste of health, joy, expansion, fluidity, harmony, and we grow in love and wisdom;
- When a person practices for him or herself, a certain level of consciousness opens and expands;
- When the energy of the practice is projected in a sharing with others, a new portal of connection and inspiration opens to penetrate the deeper levels of consciousness;
- Implied is an assumption of responsibility and commitment to one's own practice, along with one’s personal application of the principles that support the development of consciousness from the vision of Chi Kung; because...
- We can only transmit what we have integrated … what, for us, is real and has genuine meaning in our lives!
Chi Kung Instructor Intensive Program Highlights:
- Learn the necessary aspects of didactics and group management for the effective teaching of Lotus Chi Kung;
- Review each Lotus sequence and the accompanying theory for each level of Chi Kung;
- Participate in practices with supervision and feedback on teaching skills for each level of Lotus Chi Kung; and
- Receive the Yu Ren Chuan & Nei Kung Teachings of the first three steps of the practice.
To register and/or to learn more about the program, contact Tessy Bardavid at firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange a personal interview. She will provide the full details of the training and the necessary prerequisites, based on whether you are currently a student of Tessy’s, or have received the training from another instructor.
