Tian Yun Gong
The Temple of the
Welcome to the official web site of the Temple of the Celestial Cloud (Tian Yun Gong), located in Monterey California. The Temple of the Celestial Cloud is a 501 (c) (3) Non-Profit Religious Organization, founded by Senior Abbot, Professor Jerry Alan Johnson in 2005, and is a Diocese of the Longhu Shan (Dragon Tiger Mountain) Daoist Monastery located in Jianxi Province, China. This special Daoist Temple is a sanctum for devotees of Chinese Medical Qigong Healing, Daoist Internal Martial Arts Instruction, and the study of Esoteric Daoist Mysticism.
The secret wisdom and esoteric experiences gained from training Daoist Internal Martial Arts, Daoist Energetic Medicine, and Daoist Spiritual Mysticism is deep and profound. The radiant illuminations of their most subtle meanings are beyond words, and can only be grasped by direct experience. According to the ancient Daoist teaching of the Huangdi Yinfu Jing, “The Canopy of Space and Time is in your hands, Ten Thousand Transformations arise from within your body."
We at the Temple of the Celestial Cloud are currently offering to the public a unique opportunity to study and practice these ancient, powerful Daoist esoteric arts. The special courses currently taught through the Temple of the Celestial Cloud include:
• Classes in Daoist based Internal Martial Arts Training (Taijiquan, Taijichih, and Baguazhang)
• Classes in Daoist based Energetic Medicine (Medical Qigong Therapy and Tuina Therapy)

Esoteric Daoist Mysticism
the world's most ancient systems of self-development, Esoteric Daoist Mysticism
uses postures, breathing, and meditation to dissolve stress, heal common
illnesses, and activate the students spiritual Skills. The curriculum contained
within these special courses, are made available to the public through 8
special Daoist textbooks, written by Professor Jerry Alan Johnson. These were
originally introduced to the public, in order to educate students of Chinese
Esoteric Magic as to the various secret Daoist Rituals, Magical Tools, and
esoteric training still practiced in most Daoist Monasteries, described as
– Books on Esoteric Daoist Magic
Daoist Magical Incantations, Hand Seals, and Star Stepping
Magical Tools and the Daoist Altar
Daoist Exorcism: Encounters With Sorcerers, Ghosts, Spirits, And Demons
Daoist Mineral, Plant, and Animal Magic
Daoist Weather Magic and Feng Shui
Daoist Magical Transformation Skills, Dream Magic, Shape-Shifting, Soul Travel,
and Sex Magic
Daoist Magical Talismans
Daoist Internal Alchemy: Neigong and Weigong Training
understanding of Daoist Mysticism in the West has been hampered by the lack of
accessibility to the true knowledge of ancient Chinese magic. This esoteric
information only survived through centuries of secrecy, traditionally handed
down from master to student.
in China today, the general public has no true awareness of the incredible
power hidden within the secret art of ancient Daoist Mysticism. Unless
specifically sponsored and initiated as a Dizi (disciple), most individuals who
wish to study esoteric Daoism only have access to monasteries that commonly
perform ceremonies popularized by "Religious" Daoist sects (which are
sanctioned and controlled by the government's Ministry of Religion).
theory and practical application of ancient Chinese Sorcery is really no
different in training than other popular schools of esoteric Magic. For
example, there are nine levels of ranking, each level requires the mastery of
specific Alchemical Transformations, Magical Skills, and Magical Tools, etc.
occult magic was never intended to replace orthodox religion, but rather to
complement it in its quest for a deeper understanding of esoteric spirituality.
Through the alchemy of prayer and meditation, an individual can be transformed
into an enlightened or “awakened” state of consciousness.
Medical Qigong Training
Qigong is one of the Four Branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Practitioners of Medical Qigong Therapy first train to enhance their own
life-force energy (Qi), and later learn to sense and directly influence the Qi
of another person, in order to bring about a state of health and vitality. The
principle underlying the teachings at the International Institute of Medical
Qigong is the Dao (the natural Way of the Universe), the Theory of Yin and Yang
and the Five Elements, and the relationship of Heaven, Earth, and Man. We hope
that through these teachings, we can support and inspire our students and
patients to live in harmony with their True Nature, and utilize their talents
to maintain balance in their lives.
knowledge exists in order to alleviate the pains of humanity, whether physical,
mental, emotional, or spiritual. While the I.I.M.Q.’s principle purpose is to
enable students to obtain the academic and clinical knowledge to be a
successful practitioner of Chinese Energetic Medicine, it does not stop there.
The curriculum encourages the philosophy that through the healing of oneself,
one can understand how to heal others. The emphasis is placed on the cultivation
of one’s True Self and the comprehension of human nature.
