Spiral Energetics/Lo Ban Pai: Programs Summary

To enable students who attend in block weeks to learn in a traditional way, Lujan has developed standardized programs. This involves teaching certain details ahead of curriculum to lay a foundation that prepares students for future training while ensuring progression along a basic-to-advanced learning path.

Introductory Series

The introductory series builds a foundation for Oriental shamanism by preparing the body, will and energy system. It teaches movement structures, physical training methods and energy cultivation that is applied specifically to energy awakening, healing and balancing.

Students can attend for the introductory programs in any order they prefer. However all of the introductory courses must be completed before proceeding to the intermediate programs.

1. The Ultimate Way: Opening the Tao

This is a powerful opening movement set that enhances every aspect of Lo Ban Pai – from beginners to advanced students. It is the foundation – the mother form – where all possibilities are birthed. It also gives novices the immediate experience of the inherent power within their electromagnetic potential, as voluminous magnetism felt within the hands and periphery of the body.

This movement system was introduced by Lujan only recently. It has specific effects on the human bio-electromagnetic field through its orbits. It charges the DNA and starts an irreversible catalyst toward trans-dimensional consciousness.

2.    Awakening the Energy Body

Awakening the Energy Body is the first of two foundation practices. This program teaches dynamic exercises that open the meridian channels and encourages energy to stream through them. It also contains Thunder Dance, palm activation training and the rarely taught Fire Turtles chi gong sequence.

3.    Windlock System

The Windlock system provides the essential elements missing in most energy cultivation and martial disciplines. It is a physical regimen that literally reshapes the body inside and out and stimulates energy flow, while awakening the chakras and organs through specific shock motions. The fundamentals of dragon coiling are also taught in this program.

4.    Golden Lotus Series

The Golden Lotus Series cultivates energy to stream through and restore balance to the physical and energy bodies. It functions similar to ‘medical’ or ‘longevity’ chi gong, but also prepares for and absorbs moon energy in combination with the elemental meditation technique, which is illustrated in the book “Awakening the Third Eye”.  Advanced dragon coiling is taught in this set.

5.  Introductory Consolidation

Involves deep analysis of the fundamental roots of each movement and its energetic application in the programs of Opening the Tao, Awakening the Energy Body, Windlock System and the Golden Lotus Series.

Intermediate Series

This series applies cultivated energy in dynamic movement forms designed to channel chi and awareness for spiritual development by actively connecting with eternity.

6.    Dragon’s Tears

The Dragon’s Tears set is an elegant energy cultivation form guided by heart awareness to awaken and equip the third eye to dream the self forward within the highest spectrum. This unique form is the old nagual Lujan/master Lo Ban’s gift to those who seek their freedom within the integrity of their heart-path.

Dragon’s Tears initiates the empty force as a unique form. It is the essence of Ling Kong Jing.

7.    Whispering Palms

Whispering Palms is a signature form that transmits the keys for the entire movement system. It is an energy cultivation practice and sets a foundation for martial forms. The program also teaches its esoteric application and integration with meditative awareness.

8.    The Three Treasures

This set cultivates the three treasures of jing, chi and shen, and is the foundation for all further practices. It is both a stand-alone energy cultivation set and – as they are learned – integrates the two following movement sets of the intermediate series.

9.    Jaguar Series

This set focuses on advanced dragon coiling that integrates the lower cauldron, throat and crown as one unit through the Fibonacci principle of spiraling. This in turn empowers the toroidal field of the heart to expand beyond its known limits.

10.    Small Mountain

This combat set is paired with the Jaguar series and adds straight line thrusting applications. It develops focus and third eye awareness applied in immediate recapitulation, or direct knowing.

11.  Intermediate Consolidation

Involves deep analysis of the fundamental roots of each movement and its energetic application in the programs of  Dragon’s Tears, Whispering Palms, The Three Treasures, Jaguar Series and Small Mountain.

12. Primordial Shen Gong: Sexual Cultivation Practice

This optional program is available to those who have learned Awakening the Energy Body, Windlock System and Golden Lotus. The primordial shen gong develops the first stages of Ling Kong Jing, which is the power of the empty force to move beyond the boundaries of the physical body.

Advanced Series

This series integrates cultivation and application fully, both for esoteric development and optionally for martial application. This level fuses the outer and inner realities into a seamless whole.

13. Binding Roots (includes Temple Bagua)

Binding Roots is a partially moving elegant yet powerful energy-cultivating form that beckons the void that is behind the universal chi.

This form brings the cosmos into the temple of the body where by engaging with it, one learns about the self through observing and experiencing the micro-macro interaction of the Tao expressing its mystery. This is the crowning jewel of the dynamic energy cultivation practices of the system and a unique expression of the internal art of Lo Ban Pai.

14. Shadow Fist Fundamentals

Shadow Fist Fundamentals introduces the initiate to foundation of the Shadow Fist Kung Fu system of Lo Ban Pai. It is a dynamic set of movements that incorporate simultaneous attack and defense reflexive routines. This sets the physiological neural net to respond with speed and efficiency. Shadow Fist Kung Fu also develops power and directness within the mood of the warrior.

15. Plum Blossom

This set is the culminating integration of the dynamic coiling motions, awakened energy and awareness cultivated through preceding practices. It expresses the heart of the warrior spirit actively – as a martial skill if required – but principally to provide the energetic forbearance against the forces that seek to subdue ones unique expression.

This program also includes Lo Ban Pai’s version of Siu Lim Tao. It is an integral part of the short-force martial arts application. This form is not to be mistaken with the Wing Chun Sui Lim Tao. It is the original form that was first taught in correspondence with the Plum Blossom and the Wooden Dummy. It encompasses Chum Kiu and Bue Gee.

16. Shadow Fist Kung Fu: Advanced Techniques

Shadow Fist uses the internal principles of Lo Ban Pai and is a formidable martial form, powered by activated vortexes in the energy field employed to fortify and shield the warrior while fully engaged in life and the pursuit of spiritual growth. This was the art used to protect royalty, a testament to the possibilities of  translating energy cultivation into real-world application.

17.  Advanced Consolidation

Involves deep analysis of the fundamental roots of each movement and its energetic application in the programs of Binding Roots (including Temple Bagua), Shadow Fist Fundamentals, Plum Blossom, Shadow Fist Advanced Techniques.
