TaoTouch Chi Kung Basics


Four Fridays - August 6-27, 2021

10am-12pm pacific time

Recordings and notes will be shared after each class, so it's ok if you can't join live.

Instructor: Gilles Marin

NOTE: This class is required before you can take the hands-on Fundamentals of Chi Nei Tsang class. Also required for Fundamentals is being familiar with the Healing Buddha Palms practice.

Class is open to anyone- even those not going on to hands-on classes.

Taoist (TaoTouch) Chi Kung Basics course will focus on the essence of internal alchemy during Chi Kung practice. It will be, at the same time, a continuation of the Biology of Consciousness class and a starting initiation point to the complete beginner in the practice of Taoist internal alchemy for healing and mental, emotional and spiritual evolution.

These ancient methods powerfully harmonize your energy systems while promoting inner health and the ability to help others heal from within.


Training will involve a deeper connection with our subconscious for enhanced transformational results. This will be done by connecting physical movement, breath, and personal emotional structures to the biology of consciousness.


We will start the first session with an improved version of the Opening of our Microcosmic Orbit, which I prefer to call our Fountain of Life.  We will take our time to connect with the specificity of our consciousness at every level of individuation as well as their corresponding sources of existence.

The nature of Gilles' teaching is fluid and flexible, depending on YOU - who is in class and questions asked. TaoTouch Chi Kung Basics class include a selection of the following topics:

  • Introduction to the true holistic, whole-person approach to health and healing

  • The Microcosmic Orbit or "Fountain of Life" with its seven levels of individuation

  • Taoist Meridian Daily Biological Clock

  • Earth Relationship Chi Kung

  • Bone Breathing Meditation

  • Sleeping Chi Kung

  • Dreaming Chi Kung

  • Sunning Meditations

  • Six Healing Sounds - upgraded version

  • Yin and Yang energies' mental and emotional attributes

  • Healing Buddha Palms

  • The Five Intelligences of our Biology of Consciousness

  • and more!


Be ready for deep introspection and transformation!
