Matt Parsons – Founder
In 2009 Matt Parsons nearly passed from a series of transient ischemic attacks. A survivor of child abuse, multiple car accidents, and the streets of Stockton, California – a severe case of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder manifested along with Bipolar I and epileptic symptoms. Losing multiple languages is difficult. The paralysis, joint dislocation, poverty, mental illness, and subsequent rehabilitation have been a long journey.
Thanks to esoteric Buddhist, Christian, and Daoist practices Matt has progressed to a point of working toward decertification from a Seriously Mentally Ill rating by the State of Arizona. He is looking forward to a bright future serving his community and his life’s purpose.
Our offerings include energetic cultivation practices from Chinese internal martial arts. Another facet of our practice is in multiple branches of Reiki or external energy emission therapy. Matt is a Reiki Master Practitioner currently transitioning into the role of Reiki Master Teacher. He currently teaches Usui Reiki 1 and 2 in addition to Qigong, Neigong, Neidan, Deity Meditation, and Mantra.
Our Chinese internal martial arts primarily descend from Jiang Rong Qiao. Hebei Xingyiquan and the Jiang Baguazhang are mainly from master Kenny Gong. Matt has been a member of the Guang Ping Yang Tai Chi Association since October of 2019 and primarily practices zhan zhuang influenced by Han Xingyuan and Han Family Yiquan.
