Master Michael Chou has developed a series of courses for conveying the dharma to us.
Gateway to Universal Love Light Class
In this 7 day class, the student is introduced to and given guidance in the following basic cultivation practices:
Standing Like a Pine -a stillness meditation which trains the "1" - shaped energy
Bowing - a way to integrate the "1" and "0" shaped energies to form a harmonious whole
Healing Hands of Universal Love - a tool for helping others that also trains our "0" - shaped energy
Since this course material needs time to be absorbed and practiced, we recommend that it be taken multiple times.
Student Sharing - " I took the class multiple times, and after the third time, I realized that the first time, I was just absorbing the energy; the second time, I was listening to the material; and the third time was when I really got it."
HoChi Foundation Class
In this 5 day class, the student is introduced to and given guidance in HoChi practice. HoChi practice is a moving meditation which integrates the paternal "1" shaped and the maternal "0" shaped energies in a dynamic manner.
The Gateway to Universal Love Light Class is a pre-requisite to this class. We recommend an established practice in Standing Like a Pine before taking this class. Standing Like a Pine is analogous to building piping channels for ULL to flow in, HoChi practice is analogous to turning the Universal Love Light water tap on. One needs to have well established channels before turning on the water.Advanced Programs
