The 7 Lotus Chi Kung program offers energy management and a healing system based on ancient Taoist, Hindu & Vedic technologies combined and developed by Carlos de León, creator of Ontogony. This program includes online teachings and personal guidance from the instructor.

The 7 Lotus Chi Kung Program for Healing, Transformation and Liberation offer a practice in postures, breathing and movement, complemented with visualization and vocalization. There are 7 progressive levels in this online system, each building capacity and well-being, with the guidance of Tessy Bardavid. Before each level of advancement, a personal interview is arranged for review and evaluation.

The Ontogonic vision 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. 

The Fourth Lotus focuses on feeding the internal organs and developing the internal chi through combining strength and relaxation with fluidity and dynamism. These exercises known as 'The 8 Treasures of Health', Ba Daunn Gin, or Pa Tin Gam were created more than a thousand years ago, and exist in many variations. 

The energetic principle is that energy is formed in the extremities and flows to the internal organs; the movement of the extremities activates the muscles surrounding the organs and increases the flow of Chi, thus nourishing muscles, bones, joints, and internal organs. The flow of the Fourth Lotus sequence helps to release stagnant or blocked energetic patterns, and strengthens the legs and muscles to connect with our personal power through our grounding connection to the earth. When energy is clean, powerful, and coupled with a loving motivation, we have true contact with life, with states of awareness and the Self.

Program Objectives:

  • Explore the effects of improving physical, mental and emotional health in the physical & subtle bodies through the practice of Chi Kung;
  • Discover how deepening awareness and breath helps manage the stress of daily life;
  • Benefit from strengthening the “Kidney Chi”, removing energetic and emotional blockages and promoting its transmutation;
  • Learn how this system of Chi Kung eliminates toxins and improves the flow of energy in and around the body;
  • Experience how, by allowing more of the unconscious into conscious awareness, we open our internal flow of energy and prepare the body for greater spiritual development.

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.

  • Mexico: June 2022

  • Spain: July or August 2022

  • Vancouver, Canada: October 2022

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.

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.
