Tiffiny Fyans headshot 2020 a.jpeg

In April 2021, Tiffiny Fyans will be gently holding space for self-work: returning to the center of our being around which our world turns. We will work on cultivating presence and defragmenting our self back into whole. We'll connect with our own source, our core, staying steady while many winds blow around outside...

We will be working with the navel, our hub with fascial links to the spine and each vital organ's connective ligaments, as well as the lower Dan Tien, the storehouse of energy just behind and below the navel. These practices provide an inner window into our body-mind. Learn to balance the inner Feng Shui of our selves, friends, family and pets with this simple method.

This work makes a comfortable nest in the lower Dan Tien to hang out in :)

Using the philosophical concepts of classical Taoism at the origin of traditional Chinese medicine, we can clearly differentiate the whole mind into its 5 very distinct mental states extending from our biological make up.

Topics include: • The 5 Essential Points to manifest full consciousness of life • The 5 Powers and 5 Directions of Existence • Tai'Chi and the Pakua: movement of life, 8 trigrams, and the human body • Biological clock of meridians and elemental forces • Metabolism and Internal Alchemy, connecting with External Alchemy.

Chi Kung Practices: • Sunning Practice • Six Healing Sounds • Microcosmic Orbit • Eight Directions (Misogi) practice of energizing and cleansing • Peace on Earth Aikido Practice

Hands-on Practices: • Redirecting breath out of heart and into lower abdomen • Vertebral breathing • Dream Touch to trigger hormone and neurotransmitter production in intestines and enteric nervous system.

Advanced CNT class description 2016:

 

Prerequisite: Fundamentals of CNT class. Students must also be active CNT practitioners.

 

This advanced workshop has a twofold purpose: transmitting Gilles' most up to date knowledge about Chi Nei Tsang techniques, and to develop a network of connected Taoist Healing Energetic practitioners and teachers doing Chi Nei Tsang from Gilles' lineage in the Western Hemisphere.

 

This will be another extraordinary opportunity to gather with other practitioners and to deepen and develop your practice!

Gilles will be teaching the most up-to-date knowledge about his Chi Nei Tsang work and looks forward to continuing to develop a network of practitioners throughout the world.

For Students who have already taken this class, this workshop will be more oriented to working on the structures of emotions and releasing patterns of chronic emotional tension from the strict physical level, which is the subject of my next book: The Tao of Healing Touch.

The workshop also covers the following:

●  Work on the chest with pericardial release
●  The patterns of hiatal hernia with reflux and chronic anxiety     

●  Additional work on the pelvis and sacral cavity
●  Spinal work never taught before: CNT on the back working with the intervertebral soft tissues.    

●  Lower abdominal issues including colo-rectal colitis involving prostate, pelvic inflammatory symptoms, and endometriosis, post surgical bowel obstructions including paralytic ileus and adhesions

●  Special module on working on clients with Parkinson's Disease. 

Together we are increasing the vital force of the practice of Chi Nei Tsang!

Read note from Gilles regarding his advanced continuing education courses.

 

Instructor: Gilles Marin

 

“I am very appreciative of the advanced class for practitioners.., there is an ease and confidence in everyone's touch that makes the class worthy of attending. The value of weaving a closer-knit group of professionals with similar philosophy and approach creates a camaraderie that is priceless."
~ Jak Noble, Certified CNT practitioner

 
“Discussion and practice with Gilles has been extremely useful. It brought insightful perspectives and precise guidance in the different practices. I highly recommend this series of workshops which reflects the evolution of Gilles's vision of healing.”
~ Marie-Christine Cornet, Certified CNT Practitioner

"I am continuing to feel the benefits from the workshop... the lightness and being happy like I haven't in a couple of years. Thanks to you and all that attended the class."

~ Heidi Gore, Certified CNT Practitioner

TAKE IT AGAIN - IT'S NEVER THE SAME TWICE!
"Gilles, Thank you for your teaching at the Advanced Practitioners’ workshop last week.  I learned so much!  Each advanced workshop helps me to get to a deeper level in my understanding of Chi Nei Tsang.  Now the sessions I am giving are more effective and deeper and I am more in touch than before. The opportunity to learn with other practitioners gives me the experience and feedback that I need to keep growing as a practitioner.  It’s so easy to level off with what I know. 

Our workshop was much more than a review.  You helped me to gain a deeper understanding of the essence and foundation of Chi Nei Tsang.  Moment by moment I felt more connected and responsive to each person I worked on.  My experience of receiving CNT from other practitioners, the detailed directions you gave, and the questions and feedback sessions:  all are coming together for me.  I feel transformed! "
~ Karen Pearle, Certified CNT Practitioner

Note, in regards to Mantak Chia's UHT Certifications:

 

Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals Level certification is a common trunk with Master Chia's Universal Healing Tao CNT1 certification program for the title of CNT1 Practitioner. It is recognized and certified on demand by M. Chia. All other levels taught at the CNT Institute other than CNT Fundamentals (ie. Somato-Emotional and Global Body) are materials of the Taoist Healing Energetics approach only, a specialization of Gilles Marin's School of Chi Nei Tsang. Those levels are not cross-referential with Master Chia's program.

 

People certified as a Chi Nei Tsang Practitioner by Master Chia’s Universal Healing Tao are required to take one full Chi Nei Tsang Fundamentals workshop including the 2 days preparatory Chi-Kung in order to be granted the title of Chi Nei Tsang Practitioner in Gilles Marin's School of Taoist Healing Touch.

 

Click here for more info on the relation between the Chi Nei Tsang Institute/Taoist Healing Touch and Mantak Chia's Universal Healing Tao System.

Master Mantak Chia

 

Repeat Classes:


Each core class is required twice to encourage practice, fine tuning, ensure more complete internalization of material and further develop your extension of healing chi. Classes are never the same twice as different things are addressed, the class group changes, and you grow between sessions as well! Additional benefits of taking a class again:

 

  • Go to a much deeper level of understanding of CNT principles

  • Deepen your own healing process

  • Get feedback from and share experience with other students

  • Practice on and learn from new bodies

  • Fulfill certification requirements

  • Renew your certification (required within 2 years of your certification)

  • Directly experience Gilles’ presence and touch

  • Give more effective sessions

  • Help people with a wider range of symptoms

  • Make lasting connections with other Chi people!

"This was my third time taking the Somato-Emotional course.
Every time I attend each course, I learn more, more about technique, about myself and about life. By repeating the courses, understanding and experience deepens.


For things to mature, it takes time. And after several years of practice, I know there’s no short cut to mature the practice of Chi Nei Tsang. And I get this message from Gilles: "take your time."

 

In modern times where speed is considered good, I think this is a valuable attitude. Then we can really enjoy the present moment 

and the juice of life is hidden in those very present moments.  

Thank you, Gilles!"

~ Shizuka, CNT Certified Practitioner/Instructor from Tokyo, Japan
