Whispering Palms is a signature form that transmits the fundamental esoteric keys for the entire movement family of Lo Ban Pai.

It is a very deep energy cultivation practice and establishes a strong foundation for martial forms. This program instructs the practitioner in their integration of meditative awareness, which opens up the electromagnetic force to rise through the physical form and be utilized. It awakens the mysterious essence of one’s internal power.

Void Essence

Whispering Palms is a comprehensive energy cultivation form that utilizes rotational postures, which stabilize the central force through the alignment of the energy centers: the lower, middle and upper dantiens.

The mystery of Lo Ban Pai becomes increasingly palpable as a conscious kinesthetic experience via the movements. This powerful sequence enhances perception of the magnetism that emanates from the hands, which in turn boosts the capacity to collect and store chi.

This heightened awareness of electromagnetic connectivity promotes the ability to align with a deep reservoir of sincerity within the self, which fosters the elusive state of communion with spirit.

The Tibetans, Twisted Roots, Emperors and Continual Knot Sequences

Whispering Palms is a beautiful, elegantly woven series of fluid coiling movements that trace energy pathways in and around the body. It comprises a succession of forms arranged in four sets: The Tibetans, Twisted Roots, Emperors and Continual Knot sequence, which can be practiced independently of one another. An optional ‘Gateway’ set can be inserted between each of these modules to strengthen the magnetic potential being drawn from the earth via the legs.

The practitioner can adapt the series in accordance with their own physical fitness levels. This allows the roots of one’s being to systematically develop the power necessary for the most demanding application of the set.

Chi Cultivation and Internal Alchemy

Whispering Palms cultivates a very potent and dense electromagnetic field through the principles of Spiral Energetics. Having enlivened, absorbed and stored that energy the practitioner retains a photonic awareness of that potential throughout their day. This awareness alerts the student to the full spectrum of influences within their environment, which enhances intuitive receptivity.

Chi cultivation is also improved by establishing a tangible bridge between the lao-gung points on the palms, and the lower dantien. This is required to become aware of the full spectrum of internal alchemy that is being activated via this sequence. This pulsating connectivity allows the student to be both a practitioner of internal work (neijia) and to have a point of reference to self-adjust movements through direct biofeedback.

Traditionally this technique is taught by an unnecessarily long and arduous approach. Lujan supersedes this method by applying direct transmission through expanding his electromagnetic field while in the presence of the student. This allows the initiate to become acutely aware of their potential for future development through direct experience.

Esoteric Secrets of the Dragon Gates

Whispering Palms provides a vehicle for daily interaction with, and a sensory-based experience of, what Lujan calls ‘eternity’; that ineffable mystery beyond the confines of our socialized awareness.

Energy cultivation creates a platform for esoteric practices and Whispering Palms brings both these together by engaging the Dragon Gates. These natural electromagnetic vortexes emanate from the body and into the energy field at specific locations.

Dragon gates are sealed by socialization and this practice opens, nurtures and activates them so their true functionality is restored, as two-way portals between self and eternity.

This requires the application of the secret essence of the Tao, such as sincere action, and the use of movements known as ‘shen-gongs’, which align one with the true potential of the human spirit, personally and collectively.

Learning what it means and how to enter a Dragon Gate is the spiritual gift of this program and the source of the name Whispering Palms. With this skill the warrior can beckon eternity, and eternity can respond in harmonic resonance to manifest what can be described as a most intimate and transformational communion with the ineffable void itself.

Oriental Shamanism and Modern Science

Lujan describes the spiral energetic principles of Lo Ban Pai in terms of Quantum mechanics. This marriage between ancient oriental shamanism and modern science is a novel way to contextualize what actually occurs as palpable phenomena instead of mere theory. The function and application of energy vortexes, Fibonacci spirals and the bridging of time-space with Dragon Gates becomes available as a real experience with profound implications for personal growth.

Internal Martial Arts

If the student is capable, the preliminary ‘half-moon step’ is introduced, preparing the practitioner for Temple Bagua: one of the most advanced practices. This stepping can be incorporated with the last part of Whispering Palms, thereby adding a walking element. If the student is not ready to absorb this information, this movement will be taught in the Binding Roots program.

Healing Meditation

Lujan teaches the Healing Meditation in conjunction with Whispering Palms. This technique has been a closely guarded secret for centuries. It facilitates the connection of the palms to the lower dantien, which allows the individual to become connected to the true source of their internal alchemy.

Whispering Palms program includes:

  • Connect the palms to the lower dantien, the earth and the sky
  • Generate and store energy
  • Sense, open and activate your Dragon Gates
  • Follow energy to optimize chi cultivation
  • Develop self-correction through biofeedback
  • The art of sincerity
  • Healing meditation
