This September 8-11 at Dao House in Estes Park, Colorado three world-renowned master teachers of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) – Dr. Guo Yong Li, Dr. Jeffrey Yuen, and William Young, L.Ac., along with yoga Gurudev Shri Amritji, will share ancient Eastern knowledge to help people reverse aging and disease, and live longer, happier lives.
Wu Dang Master Chen (aka Yun Xiang Tseng), a 14th generation Wu Dang Zhang Sanfeng lineage holder and 25th generation Long Men (Dragon Gate) Daoist Priest, the founder of Dao House, and Master of Ceremonies of the Universal Consciousness Festival, stated: “We embrace all cultures, religions, beliefs and healing modalities. The annual festival is an opportunity for people to learn and experience several Alternative Healing modalities. Bringing universal consciousness to healthy lifestyles, this special event is to help everyone achieve healthy longevity.” He encouraged all to join this festival in celebrating and embracing oneness. The four-day festival offers a rich program of Chinese Martial Arts, Qigong, Dao Yin, Yoga, meditation, lectures by masters, and workshops. You can click a link here for program details.
Dr. Li is a 17th generation descendent of Chinese medicine legend Li Shi Zhen, a lineage of healers over 600 years old. Known worldwide, Dr. Li is recognized as a national treasure of China and has treated dignitaries and presidents as well as westerners. He is an author and the creator of “Gui Yuan Nourishing Qi Gong” to help prevent sickness. This will be his first trip in the U.S.
Dr. Jeffrey Yuen comes from two Daoist lineages – an 88th generation of the Yu Qing Huang Lao Pai and 26th generation of the Quan Zhen Long Men Pai. He was the first recipient of the “Educator of the Year” award by the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AAAOM). Due to Dr. Yuen’s effort, Daoism became recognized as a religion by the U.S. government, which paved the way for Daoist priests to enter the United States on special visas.
William Young, L.Ac., is an author and internationally recognized leader, educator, and advocate in Chinese Medicine. As the first instructor of Chinese Medicine in New York State, he has over 45 years of experience dedicated to tackling the root causes of chronic disease by harnessing the power of Chinese Integrative Medicine to transform individual wellness.
These three distinguished guest speakers will be joined by prominent Gurudev Shri Amritji, one of the few living yoga masters who brought the authentic teachings of yoga to the West in the early 1960’s, and Solala Towler, a teacher of Daoist (or Taoist) practices for over 25 years, publisher of Empty Vessel, and founding board member of the National Qigong Association.
Well-designed workshops will be available for festival attendees to learn practical tools and techniques to use in daily lives for better health and wellness. The festival’s Kung Fu Team of highly accomplished martial artists will also be providing workshops and performances to highlight the weekend’s activities.
