Online Courses and In-Person Events

Gong Fa (short for Dào Dé Gōng Fǎ 道德功法) is a self-care cultivation system integrated by Dr. Paul C. Wang — Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and Board Licensed Acupuncturist — based on the essence of martial, medical, and mystical lineages, concepts, and practices.

It has internal and external aspects that can be applied to your daily life:

  • During internal cultivation (Nei Gong Fa 內功法) you focus on coordinating your intention, emotion, and action. This is individual training in standing, sitting, sleeping, and stepping postures.
  • During external cultivation (Wai Gong Fa 外功法) you focus on coordinating your muscle, tendon, and bone. This is partner training with linear, circular, and spiral movements.

The Gong Fa process attunes, aligns, and actualizes your mind, heart, body, nature, and spirit. As a result, you create more balance, meaning, and presence.

The following events present aspects of Gong Fa around specific themes. Details may change so please check back often:
