Lujan Matus is offering a group workshop

at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York. This course is an ideal introduction to Lujan's teachings and The Art of Lo Ban Pai.


Exploring Parallel Perception

In this workshop, Lujan takes us into a state where the subtle currents of the interconnective universe become tangible and interdimensional awareness comes within reach.

This program will include a variety of powerful physical practices and deep awareness cultivation techniques that revolve absolutely around the adaptive axis of pure heart consciousness. This will allow you to access the timeless wisdom that truly embodies the essence of the intelligence that arrives through emptiness.

In this rare, rigorous retreat of special interest to practitioners of Taoist, Buddhist, Toltec and shamanic teachings, and all seekers of meaning, we explore the core spiraling routines of the art of Lo Ban Pai, opening the energy gates of the body, discuss the possibility of true energetic freedom, and begin to amalgamate past and future continuums within present timelines.

You will discover how to focus your intention within the most profound intentionless state, by learning to run through the internal channels that will provide 114 major centers to be activated. This, in combination with further techniques, develops your capacity to internally activate your radiance. These practices inevitably expand the voluminous viscosity of the energy bubble, 360-degrees, which corresponds with the six directions, and the core principles of the nine major joints and developing the harmonies that correspond with this.

Lujan will expound extensively on how to harness the empty spaces around the body via contacting the perimeters of the room, giving the sensation of grabbing empty air. Traditionally this is known as the one hundred thousand hands principle.

One’s capacity to melt in a profound sense of relaxation through the central line, which passes through a prominent position located in the sternum, will continue to increase in both scope and density as one matures in this discipline. This in turn allows the earthly and heavenly gates to become open through deeply understanding one’s skeletal alignment.

The main focus will be on specific gateways – something that Lujan has not taught before. The techniques within this gateway system will help activate one’s kinetic energy that is stored within the tendons.

Lujan will also release the double-breathing meditation technique, so that one can discover the strings attached to the upper region of the dantien and diaphragm simultaneously.

Also, one of the primary techniques taught will be how to locate and stabilize contact with the indefinable force known as Tao, which will be operationally activated via this method to foster a state of communion.

No previous training or experience is required to attend this event, and profound outcomes will be observable from the beginning. Extraordinary collective results have been experienced during Lujan’s workshops, whereby entire groups are simultaneously affected by pronounced electromagnetic phenomena.
