This online program introduces a Chi Kung practice for healing, transformation and liberation. The 7 Lotus Chi Kung is an energy management system based on several lineages -Taoism, Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhism, and Hindu Tantra, and developed by Carlos de León, creator of Ontogony.

The Ontogonic approach recognizes that we participate in an open energy system that sustains and contributes to our well-being and, to an important extent, regulates our ability to grow, transform and evolve. These practices and “technologies,” both ancient and modern, help to build, purify and manage our energy with significant, often life-changing outcomes.
7 Lotus Chi Kung combines postures, breathing and movement, complemented with methods such as visualization and vocalization, offer a simple and effective increase in clarity, energy, awareness and good health. There are 7 progressive levels in this system, each building capacity and well-being.
The First Lotus focuses on the opening of basic channels, energy centres of the hands and feet, cleansing & fortifying vital energy, improving relaxation and health. Generally speaking, when energy is weak, so is our connection with existence, such that we can be trapped in states of pain and suffering. When energy is clean, powerful and coupled with a loving motivation, we have true contact with life and with states of expansion and clarity.

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.
