A Personal Letter from Bruce…

Hi Folks,

Welcome to the special offer of the Energy Arts Training Circle: Gods Playing in the Clouds Mastery Edition. We are opening up a short enrollment window in 2022 for a limited time and it will be a while till we up the Circle.

Each year I commit myself to providing the highest quality training in a step-by-step monthly format that allows students to grow and learn within a supported environment.

This monthly training circle has become a foundation for many of our students to deepen their practice with consistent classes and exercises that would otherwise be unavailable.

Moreover, the Energy Arts Training Circle has become a reliable community of hundreds of dedicated practitioners who are serious about authentic Taoist energy arts.

My hope is that you find a home here, and discover your true potential as a Taoist practitioner.

Gods Qigong dates back 3000 years and is one of the oldest qigong and neigong sets from the Eastern traditions. Many consider Gods Playing in the Clouds to be a core of Taoist energy arts and perhaps the most transformational of all qigong sets.

Gods consists of only six interlinked physical movements. They might look simple on the surface, however the internal energetic restructuring is the deepest and most complete training in Taoism.

We have been releasing the Gods material inside the Training Circle for about a year so when you join you are going to get access to that information and the more advanced Gods training we do throughout this year.

This is the most in-depth teaching of this subject and contains enough training to last a lifetime. I hope you will join us.

In Appreciation,

Bruce Frantzis
