CHI KUNG (Qigong) means "energy work," an ancient Chinese yogic art that cultivates man's intrinsic internal energy ("Chi")--for healing, rejuvenation and longevity. For centuries, Qigong has been the secret engine that empowers the Chinese martial arts and healing arts to supernormal efficacy . Chi Kung For Health is a ground-breaking DVD series by Terry Dunn that teaches the very rare and powerful Flying Phoenix Heavenly Healing Chi Meditations ("Fei Feng San Gung"), a remarkable system of medical qigong created more than 400 years ago by a legendary Taoist sage, Feng Tao Teh, at Ehrmei Mountain in Szechuan Province who traveled much of his life throughout China's western frontier and Tibet exploring and developing martial, yogic, and spiritual arts. Flying Phoenix Qigong is a complete Taoist monastic system of hygienics --comprised of standing and seated, stationary and moving meditations that imparts a wide range of salient health benefits: increased respiratory power, improved circulation and metabolism, well-regulated sleep and resulting higher energy levels, improved neuro-muscular function and balance, strengthened immunity, increased bone strength, and the allostatic reversal of many signs of aging. Its long term practice activates man's latent healing potential and cultivates a superabundance of the distinctively tangible and visible Flying Phoenix Energy (Chi) that has extraordinary healing properties unlike any type of energy generated by any Yoga known to man.
Flying Phoenix Qigong imparts its remarkable health benefits through a yogic mechanism that brings all the organ functions of the body under the regulation of the subconscious mind. This mysterious super-regulating process and energy cultivation is brought on by each of the 24 Flying Phoenix Mediations, which consists of (A) an easy-to-do breath-control formula followed by (B) a meditation in repose or a serene moving meditation using repetitive natural movements that are done three times slower than typical Tai Chi form practice. The esoteric breathing formula ignites a specific flow of energy in the body; the paired posture and movements reinforces the circulation of that energy through specific orbs of the body. Flying Phoenix Qigong is easier to learn and retain than Tai Chi and its health benefits are more numerous, salient, and immediate.
Terry Dunn is a seventh generation preserver of the Bai Hu Pai tradition and has made this remarkable and hitherto secret art of Flying Phoenix Qigong available on video as a safe, precise, dynamic and self-regulated exercise regimen for natural self-healing, yogic empowerment, and spiritual illumination. This highly acclaimed Chi Kung For Health DVD series presents clear and detailed, step-by-step instruction in 24 Flying Phoenix Qigong exercises that one can learn and practice without the in-person supervision of a Qigong master. The art is so safe and fool-proof because its method is simple and brilliantly "user-friendly", while its benefits are advanced and sophisticated.
Master Dunn's video instruction is easy to follow and brings on tangible energizing and rejuvenating effects and deep samadhic (absorption-jhanic) states in a sublime and surprisingly rapid manner. With regular practice, stress and deep tensions literally vibrate away--and body syndromes melt--with every breath as the sublime Flying Phoenix Healing Energy manifests throughout the body as an exceedingly sweet bliss. Experiencing this tangible self-healing process is transformative. The universal comment made by Terry Dunn's students and beginners using the DVD series is: "I cannot believe that a human being created this art."
"This is a great practice for body, mind and spirit. It is holy; it is healthful; it is scientific. Yet, there are no words. Just do the movements, memorize the movements, do the breathing exercises before. Do not argue, do not think. Just do, and you will see results. How did the ancient Chinese discover this?" --Four Tusk Njoku "Njoku" (Philadelphia, USA) May 11, 2007
"Because of the great interest in Qigong in the west, it is important to have bona fide teachings by bona fide teachers. Too often students wind up learning a little bit of this form and a little bit of another, while never learning any complete system. This series is a good example of a serious and gifted instructor who offers a complete system of healing qigong to the serious student." -- Solala Towler, Editor, The Empty Vessel -- Journal of Contemporary Taoism.

Chi Kung For Health, Volume One:
Volume One teaches five basic standing meditations of the Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Chi Mediation system. Through these basic Flying Phoenix standing meditations, Terry Dunn teaches the three cornerstones of qigong: Shape-form (Xing), Mind or Intent (Yi), and Breath-energy (Chi) method. The first three standing meditations focus qi development at three tan tiens (chakras or energy centers): "Monk Gazing At Moon" at the upper tan tien (third eye or brow chakra), "Monk Holding Peach" at the middle tan tien (heart chakra), "Monk Holding Pearl" at the lower tan tien. These are followed by two dynamic moving meditations that concentrate qi and circulate it through the body: "Bending the Bows" opens and closes the body and mind in synchronicity with nature, mustering energy from the extremities and channeling it into the Conception Vessel (Jen Mo) and Governing Channel (Tu Mo); "Wind Above the Cloud" uses five easy and elegant bending and stretching movements to perfect physical balance and flexibility, strengthening the waist, opening the hips, regulating qi flow to the legs and arms, and ultimately develops frictionless movement of energy. (60 min.)
Chi Kung For Health, Volume Two:
Terry Dunn teaches the first six basic seated meditations of a subsystem of the Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong that is "Monk Serves Wine." Exercises One through Three are extremely simple and easy-to-do but very powerful preparatory meditations that instantly mobilize qi in the upper body and bring it into awareness. Each exercise begins with a short breath-control sequence followed by repetition of a movement that "opens and closes" the body or by meditation in repose with no movements.
Exercises Four through Six are simple and elegant choreographies of natural upper body movements done in the half-lotus position. Each meditation begins in repose with an esoteric breath control formula that instantly elevates parasympathetic tone. Once the breathing formula is done once, a beautiful and restorative sequence of movements is repeated seven times with the eyes closed and body as relaxed as possible. All the stationary and moving meditations of the Flying Phoenix Qigong system are coupled with a unique and esoteric breah-control sequence done once at the outset of practice. . The fifth seated meditation in this program is nicknamed "The sleeper" because it induces deep and restorative sleep. The sixth and final exercise on this volume does the exact opposite: it will keep the practitioner wide awake, alert and unable to sleep. Thus this meditation should be done only during daytime hours. Hence, it has been nicknamed "the waker-upper." The almost constant comment by practitioners experiencing the Flying Phoenix seated meditations for the first time is, "I can't believe a human being invented these exercises." (60 min.)
Chi Kung For Health, Volume Three:
In this volume, Terry Dunn provides instruction in two intermediate standing meditations of the Flying Phoenix Qigong system: “Wind through the Treetops” and “Moonbeam Splashes On Water.” Both exercises impart sublime energizing effects.
“Wind Through the Treetops” promotes tangible Qi circulation through natural arm movements with the torso held in three orthogonal planes: first, through the vertical with two patterns of inward circling; second, with the torso in a bent-forward horizontal position, arm movements synchronize with chi circulation in the manner of “Turning the Wheel” or "Circulation of the Light" (as Qi flows up the Governing Vessel and down the Conception Vessel); third, with the torso reclined backward to 45 degrees, the chi is mobilized by the slow outward circling of the arms that finally return to the anterior of the body at the level of the liver and kidneys. Then the Qi is returned to the middle and lower tan tien through simply elegant movements.
"Moonbeam Splashes on Water" is a powerful and beautiful meditation form that musters the Flying Phoenix healing energy and circulates it through the entire body. Terry teaches this form in three sections. The first section trains waist flexibility and control and the alignment of upper and lower body joints in movement. The second section promotes chi circulation in through martial postures similar to Tai Chi's "Press," "Push," and "Fan Through the Back." This is followed by the third section, which circles the body vertical axis through a conical pattern with the root fixed as the apex. (60 min.)
Chi Kung For Health, Volume Four:
Volume Four teaches the Advanced Long Form Meditation called the Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Chi Meditation, which is the capstone of the entire Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong system. Terry Dunn provides detailed, step-by-step, expert instruction in this 20-minute form, which is similar to a Tai Chi form in terms of choreographic complexity. The form instruction is organized into six sections; Dunn repeats each section four times, and demonstrates the entire Form at the end of the program.
Daily practice of this most comprehensive Qigong form insures impeccable good health and long-term vitality, and in short order obviates the need to practice the basic Flying Phoenix standing meditations of Volumes One and Three. This moving meditation is practiced at a speed approximately three times slower than typical Tai Chi form speed. Developing proficiency in the exercises of Volumes 1, 2 and 3 is recommended before beginning this training. (60 min.)
Chi Kung For Health, Volume Five:
Terry Dunn teaches five standing short-form "Flash" meditations of the Flying Phoenix Celestial Healing Qigong system. These exercises are remarkable in that each requires only 90 seconds to perform and need only be done once. Short and simple in movement, these exercises are easy-to-do like the basic exercises of Volume One, but their energizing effects are more powerful and profound--especially when they are practiced after Volumes One through Four have been mastered. Each meditation is the perfect embodiment of LESS IS MORE and exemplifies the sublime power of Taoist alchemic yoga. Each exercise is demonstrated four times and is captured from multiple camera angles. Regular practice of Volumes One, Two, Three, and Four is recommended in order to attain optimum benefit from this training. (60 min.)
Chi Kung For Health, Volume Six:
Terry Dunn teaches five Advanced Taoist Meditations from the White Tiger tradition. "Monk Splashes Water," "Monk Dries Silk", and "Jade Emperor Lifts Golden Pagoda to Heaven" are three such authentic, 400-year old martial Qigong exercises that cultivate a super-abundance of internal energy for health and gung-fu. Terry Dunn specially designed this regimen for athletes and martial artists. (60 min)

Each meditation has specific effects ranging from inducing deep, sound sleep without fail to stimulating heightened, supramundane awareness. Proficient practice of Volumes One and Two is a recommended before practicing Volume Seven's advanced exercises. (60 min.)
