Hi there,

does anyone have a copy of 31 Basic Chi-Kung Exercises: Of Tao Tan Pai by Terry Dunn that I could borrow or buy?

It was never published, it's just that the ISBN number was reserved that it's showing up on Amazon.

Thanks for letting me know Leif.

Do you know of any other media that teaches this system?

I may be wrong, but i believe it has never been videoed or written down, for training purposes. Not by any authorised teacher. So unless you learn from an authorised teacher, you can't learn it at all.


Also there are two kinds of men you can never trust. Those who don't drink - and those who practice the horse stance.

Definitely not anything to practice by but if you are curious here is a short summary text on those exercises:
http://web.archive.o..._taotanpai.html

As for materials covering (most likely just parts of) the system:
http://www.taoistsan...qigong_dvd.html
http://www.onecoresy...ai-chi-dvd.html (the cloud hand set I believe)

You can also check with Pedram Shojai who published the above summary and has some qigong DVDs out, whether he has something covering this system.

Thanks Leif I really appreciate this, just fascinating to read about them.

Do you think there's enough info here to give them a try?

It's a shame Terry wasn't able to publish his book.

You are welcome, if you can't make it to a live training I'd suggest to check with those three teachers as for how complete their materials are. (I didn't go beyond checking the links mentioned I'm sorry, it seemed incomplete to me but I never asked them for more info.)

As of November 2014 you can learn Tao Tan Pai = Taoist Elixir Method via Skype from Sifu Terry Dunn in Santa Monica, CA.

He was a student of Taoist Priest Lew K. Share who brought this method to the United States but would never allow it to be taught via video.

I have obtained the short form called Cloud Hands which is the first 5 exercises of Tao Tan Pai and supposed to be very powerful.

It is available from a student in the lineage, Carl Totten who has put it on dvd. It is easy to learn. Some feel more like physical exercise than qigong. So if you are only interested in doing nice, slow moving, gentle flowing tai chi like movements for your preferred style of qigong, this form would not be to your liking.

One of the above links takes you to the Taoist Sanctuary of San Diego. I have their dvd by Bill Helms. It is the updated version and this version has some of the 5 exercises comprising the Tao Tan Pai but not all five. So one more reason to get the Carl Totten dvd.

What is the history and the lineage of Tao Tan Pai?
