Become a Student of Da Xuan

If you would like to take your practice beyond longevity and internal strength, you can commit to ongoing practice with me and become a student of the Da Xuan tradition.

Training can be done completely online or with a mix of online and in-person

I will guide you through creating a sustainable, daily practice in which you will explore and develop yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. You do not need any specific or previous experience, nor do you need to cross train in other systems. Everything you need for complete health and spiritual development will be taken care of by the practice itself!

Training with me includes:

  • Connecting with me via email or messages as often as you need
  • One video session per fortnight to review
  • Guidance on how to create a habit of daily practice
  • Complete training to develop the body, internal strength, breathing, energy, emotions, and mind
  • Exploring practices of Wai Gong (basic physical training), Nei Gong (aka Qi Gong, internal strength training), Nei Dan (internal alchemy), Xin Yi Dao Yin Fa (emotional training), Shen Gong (mental training), Shen Dan (spiritual alchemy), Dao Yin (Daoist yoga), Yang & Li Taiji (aka Tai Chi), Xing Yi Quan (form-intention boxing), Bagua Zhang (8 Trigrams Palm), Ziranmen (“door to the natural” boxing).
  • Progressive access to an online video library containing hundreds of exercises (don’t worry, we don’t have to do them all at once!)
  • Theory and frameworks to orient you in your practice
  • Progressive access to all of my current and future online courses
  • Full access to all of my local classes (if you are in the area)
  • 30% discount on all workshops and healing sessions
 

Being a student connects you to the Da Xuan tradition and so grants you access to videos and training opportunities with the head of the tradition, Serge Augier, which are only available to committed students of Da Xuan.

What's Involved?

When you’re ready to start, we can connect by video to go over any questions you have. Once everything is clear, I will send you an invoice. Training begins the moment the invoice is paid, at which point I will grant you access to your first tutorial videos and access to the formal student groups in my community area.

The details of what will be trained are specific to each individual. I will help you find a balance specific to you based on the time you want to commit, the training that will help you to confront your issues, and the training that is enjoyable for you. 

In general, I encourage students to work towards 3 small sessions a day of 10-15 minutes per session (30-45 mins total each day). Over time, some or all of these We use 3 sessions so we can spread our attention between practices for the body, practices for the breath and practices for the mind – each of which are important for our development. The sessions can be done at any time throughout your day.

This kind of practice is to help us engage with our lives more completely, not replace our lives with training. We can practice a lot if we are feeling inspired but there is no pressure to do any more than a few short sessions each day. Even the habit of daily short sessions is tricky to build and it is recognized that this habit will sometimes fall away in the first year or two.  It’s not a problem, just get back into it when you are ready and we will continue from there!

Students will receive written instructions and video tutorials, and can check in at any time via direct message or email to ask questions. If you’re local (or are an online student passing through), I will also give you direct instructions during regular classes. I will also be available once per fortnight for a video call or in person session to review anything the student is working on.
