An Open Letter from Master Mingtong Gu

Re: The Living Tao Mentorship Wisdom Circle

Living Tao is about discovering and creating the inner temple of Tao, living and manifesting life as a sacred temple of Tao – Heaven on the Earth.

Living Tao is about awakening and returning to our essence, which is inseparable from the essence of the cosmos, from which we redesign and recreate our reality and our life. It is not a dogma or belief, but a deep inquiry and practice of “pure consciousness, pure energy, your unique essences, values, path, experience and actions” to realize our full capacity of wisdom, love, joy, freedom, creativity and purpose.

The Living Tao Wisdom Circle is a dedicated and intimate circle/community that prioritizes their Wisdom Healing Qigong practice to deepen, expand, and embody spiritual fulfillment and self-realization in every-day life.

The Living Tao Wisdom Circle is a spiritual sangha community, guided by the mentorship of Master Mingtong Gu, to explore and realize the full potential of Wisdom Healing Qigong as a path to spiritual awakening and self-realization, without renouncing your family or ordinary life.

Master Mingtong’s Mentorship is unique. It has been designed to serve the most advanced and committed practitioners in our Wisdom Healing Qigong community. You will have on-going focused and devoted time with your teacher, Master Mingtong Gu, through monthly livestream teaching, practice, Q&A, and sharing. You may choose to attend an optional practice group many times each week, as well as intimate small group time with other members of the Wisdom Circle.

Master Mingtong’s Mentorship and guidance will strengthen your commitment to yourself and the collective. You will practice journaling as a part of the process to reflect and integrate, and share this journey with each other. Together you will cultivate the true spiritual realization through: teaching, transmission, feedback, practice, mirroring (with your teacher and each other), plus unconditional support and commitment.

This is not another program for learning techniques and information. Instead, each member will be guided to apply the monthly spiritual focus to a specific “Life Project”.

Your choice of Life Project will empower you to take your inner practice into your outer actions and the full expression and contribution of your gift to the world. Options for your Life Projects can include your professional career, hobby, family legacy, humanitarian service, facilitating a Qigong group, an artistic or writing project, or many other possible creative endeavors. The choice is yours.

The purpose of your Life Project is not to complete a task or reach a goal, but to establish and become devoted to a meaningful process that connects the living of your life with your life’s purpose, plus the realization of your unique contribution and impact.

Master Mingtong’s Mentorship Wisdom Circle requires a true commitment from all: Teacher, Members, and the synergistic Collective. When you choose to be a member of this on-going sangha (with year-by-year commitments), you are stepping into deepening your practice of Wisdom Healing Qigong from Pure Consciousness realization, as well as shifting your paradigm to your life as your practice. It is a type of mastermind circle where you find your spiritual peers and discover your true archetype as warrior, healer, explorer, leader, teacher, creator/artist, peace maker, lover, entrepreneur, etc.

Master Mingtong’s Living Tao Mentorship Wisdom Circle is the highest-level commitment he and The Chi Center offer — dedicated to the healing and awakening of ourselves, each other, and all sentient beings.

This is your invitation to claim your own most profound dedication, through collective healing and awakening.

We are looking forward to welcoming you as a member of our Wisdom Circle sangha community and we honor each of you on your journey of qualification, devotion, and commitment.

Please note: This is an ongoing Advanced “Level 3” Pure Consciousness membership circle and it is important that the attendees already have an understanding of advanced concepts of Wisdom Healing Qigong and Pure Consciousness practices; e.g., know underpinning philosophies and terminologies, have experience working with chi purification; know the movement and sound practices, and can use all aspects to support their process with the group.

We have strict guidelines for eligibility for this special Mentorship Wisdom Circle with Master Mingtong. You must have completed several months of Pure Consciousness training through our online programs and be approved for membership.

Discover and Actualize Peace & Fulfillment

This Wisdom Mentorship Circle is specifically designed to lead you through a journey of deeper awakening, spiritual healing, and profound joy by accessing Pure Consciousness as a gateway to self-realization.

No matter what your previous experience or your chosen spiritual tradition has been, you will benefit from Wisdom Healing Qigong Pure Consciousness practices.

You’ll be supported in expanding into your full potential and awakening to a new dimension of consciousness and wellbeing.

You will release stress, transform old mental, emotional, and behavior patterns, and embody more of your Essence to experience freedom, joy, and presence.

As complexity melts away in favor of tranquility and simplicity, you will experience more joy and bliss in the everyday aspects of life that we normally miss or take for granted.

"Mastery of chi is really achieved through mastery of consciousness. We use consciousness in a careful, craftsman-like way, to shape our life, and to attain our goals..."

Living Tao Mentorship Wisdom Circle Testimonials

“My husband John and I started daily Qigong practice about 10 years ago, and we rarely miss practicing a day, even when we’ve been in different places. For example, sometimes I didn’t really want to practice, but I did it, because John was practicing and vice versa.

“Then in 2022, I really got deeply involved in the Mentorship (Inner Truth). And it felt really weird not having John in the program with me. I felt like I was on a different timeline — in a different dimension almost. And so, being in the Living Tao Mentorship year together through 2023, we have now caught up with each other.

“The biggest things that have taken place are dramatic changes in our relationship. We are both way less defensive with each other, a lot less blaming. I take responsibility for whatever is happening inside of me, instead of throwing it over on John, which you know is really easier to do.

“We’ve been married several decades and this has been huge in our relationship — the ability to just let go of whatever it is our mind has cooked up about what’s going on, watch that “story” building in action, and simply let go of it. It used to take several days for us to get over conflict, and we can do it pretty quickly now.

“There’s a deeper foundation of trust, love, and kindness between us. Keeping score and the tit-for-tat thing has faded away, I’m really so thankful. Because with that foundation I feel free to be more who I need to be — more who I am, my own self. And, it’s still getting better.” –Jani M.

– Jani M.

“The growing family of chi friends that we have through through the Mentorship program has developed through small group time. I think I fall in love with every single person that’s there, because when you’re with them, and they’re vulnerable and showing who they really are — well geez, what a gift — that simply doesn’t happen that much in life.

“Even with the closest people that I live around in my local area, we don’t share that deeply. And when you share that deeply, you create a bond that is that is liberating. And heartwarming. So enlivening!

– John M.

“Our Qigong practice is a process of shedding layers. It was layer after layer after layer after layer for me. And then just before the Advanced Retreat with the Mentorship began, I got this energetic kind of insight that all I had been doing in my practice was in preparation for this Advanced 10 Day Retreat. This knowing has been the most intense and most profound part for me.

“I also learned that this journey is much easier when you walk in community. I don’t have to do this alone, I can count on the support of other practitioners. Sometimes I give some support, and sometimes I am carried along by others. I am so grateful for having found this loving community!

– Luke MP.

“A few friends from the Living Tao mentorship traveled to our home to practice with my husband and I. Our living room became our “kiva”. During that time, what happened was amazing. An incredible level of love and healthy connection developed between us. We gave each other enough space for that to come into form. And an enormous capacity for love and a feeling of family emerged — as though we were a truly healthy family. It was like the rebirth of family creation.

“My Life Project was going to be, ‘How to Live and How to Die’. Because when I began this journey, what came to me was a desperate feeling of both dying to live and living to die. So I had these lofty ideas about creating a book.

“But after their visit to our home, I had an awareness: It is time to treat John, my beloved, as my best friend. To make our home beautiful for each other and for ourselves, and to give to each other and our life the same kind of gifts that we give to our beloved guests.

“And so, that’s become my life project now. Instead of dying to live, I open my heart, feel my own pain, and don’t reject my partner as the reason I’m feeling pain. I embrace my pain, as much as my joy and I am devoted that I will be with myself in every moment and embrace it, no matter what, through all of it. Creating a model of how to live and remaining devoted to this path — this is what my life is till I die and onward eternally.”

– Judith M.

“Being a member of this Mentorship has been quite an unfoldment process for me. Going deeper, realizing more fully the inner truth that I’ve literally been striving for my whole life. I started leading an online practice session for the people in the first year of the Mentorship group. And it was amazing how motivating this has been. I mean, my friends, were going to show up, and we were going to practice together! And so that motivated me to get up early in the morning and figure out which videos and there was a feeling of holding the energy of the group the chi field. Eventually, we started to share more deeply with each other.

“In the second year I began leading groups six days a week instead of just three days a week. It was a big step up and commitment. And I have to say that the same sort of thing has unfolded. As I’ve stepped into greater, greater responsiveness, I’ve felt more energy, more alive, but more vitality, and more support. It’s all here in the Energy Information, as Master Mingtong calls it.

“I’m starting to realize that it’s been my self doubt that has separated me from those experiences. And as I’ve practiced, my sense of fulfillment has gotten more and more real — in a deep body felt sense. Beyond the thinking, beyond the rationalization and the intellect, there’s a deep body knowing that arises now. And with that, comes the desire to want to share this practice and this realization more and take responsibility for creating that in my world and in my life.

“I feel so fulfilled. And there’s always more. It’s not like this is the endpoint. This is the starting point for living my real life, my inner life and my outer life becoming one in the same.”

– John M.

Your Intentions And Your Results. In the Wisdom Healing Qigong tradition, we will help you connect with and emphasize your deepest intention. What is your true, pure intention for joining this program? Your answer, your truth carries a certain energetic signature. It is the intention beyond what you do that determines the results of your actions. Before beginning this, or any wellness program, please consult your healthcare professional. Wisdom Healing Qigong is not intended to diagnose, cure, or be a substitute for professional medical advice.

Life's most challenging times can also be the most important opportunities to re-create yourself and your life with new energy, wisdom, love, and joy.

"We cultivate our own life energy through accessing nature’s great store of life energy (qi/chi). This approach produces quick results. But cultivating one’s chi is not the most fundamental; cultivating one’s spirit is.

"Mastery of chi is really achieved through mastery of consciousness. We use consciousness in a careful, craftsman-like way, to shape our life, and to attain our goals. If we use modern terminology to name this process, we call it Qigong...

"In modern terms, Qigong is just the refinement of consciousness to enhance the state of energy in the body. This leads to vibrant health, a harmonious body and mind, and awakened spiritual life.”

Cancellation Policy

If you join Living Tao mentorship program and decide it's not right for you, you can cancel within 30 days of the first seminar. Your payments will be refunded, less a $200 cancellation processing fee. Beyond that 30-day window there are no refunds. Once your application has been approved, you become a chosen member of a unique collective of advanced Wisdom Healing Qigong practitioners. A mentorship is a special bond and commitment between the leader and members; and members within the collective. Together we form a unique field of intention and naturally a group chi field forms, of which you are an integral part. We can refer to this as a type of sangha - a unified eco-system. The dynamics and success of the group depends upon everyone's engagement and ongoing participation. This aspiration invites a heightened sense of connection, a greater appreciation of mutual interdependence, and a shared responsibility for all beings to respect and care for one another. During the course of your mentorship, if you choose to pause, withdraw, or change your status with the program in any way, you must first carefully consider the impact your proposed change will have on the collective. Then, you must consult with Master Mingtong Gu to jointly consider your situation before a decision can be made. Depending upon the outcome of those conversations, the appropriate administrative steps will be put into motion by The Chi Center Director. (Rev.08/06/23)
