Techniques you Will be learning Are LIVE with a master
The Urban Monk practices are meant to be done daily and the traditional way of learning is LIVE with a master. I’m excited to share the DIRECT TRANSMISSION of my esoteric Taoist Qi Gong with my students.

This practice is what powers me and my Grand Master had forbidden filming it before he passed away. That means I can only teach it in a live setting. And now…that time has come. I’m excited to share the deepest, most powerful, and special practice that I’ve treasured with you.
Here's the deal: Most people are throwing darts at the mindfulness board. They've learned a handful of techniques and are using them haphazardly trying to feel better. They've never been shown the Light. They've never felt the flow of vitality, energy, and pure spirit in their bodies so it's all a mental exercise.

That ends here.
This comes from my temple training that delivers a powerful, visceral and real experience you can't deny. Once you experience it, there's no doubting it there's no doubting you true essential nature.

You learn the system, you do the work, and YOU reap the rewards.

Come ready to receive. Sharing this practice is very special and I take it very seriously.

Level One Training 3 Day Retreat Experience $1195

Stress is killing us and without a personal practice to offset it, you're in trouble. This is a big part of the Urban Monk Practice. We’ll do practices which will help you drop into a timeless space and deeply relax into the present moment.
We will be moving and taking care of our bodies all weekend. Do not expect to sit around and take notes at a desk because that’s not how Pedram teaches. Let’s get into it and bring life back into our bodies the way we need to.
Let’s laugh and enjoy meeting each-other. We have a strong community and really want you all to connect and support each-other along your paths. Pedram's favorite thing is meeting and hanging with students who are motivated to grow and thrive.
The 31 exercises in Level One of the Tao Tan Pai system
Level One of the Tao Tan Pai system. These 31 exercises will help balance your energy, boost vitality, lubricate the joints, and calm the mind. There are seven levels to the system and level one must be mastered before moving forward.

These are exercises that you will be able to take home with you. Practice them daily until you feel full of life.

Your retreat experience will take place amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in Utah. Surrounded by nature Pedram will lead the training and teach you specific Qi Gong and Meditation exercises.
Learning to calm your mind is important but there are many other skills you must learn. Focused visualization, breath control, progressive relaxation, and directed energy for healing are all key lessons to learn. Let's go inward and mine for gold.
In order to step into your power, your body and mind need to be able to handle more energy. The practices we will cover will help bring up your capacity to move more vitality and breath through your system. More balanced energy gives us more clarity, a better mood, and stronger immunity.

what people are saying about their experience...
"No Bullshit"
No Bullshit - all perfectly directed work.  Pedram did all the teaching.  His method of teaching was free of frustration inducing expectation.  Steps further on the journey of awakening. Increased my awareness of how to continue to grow.
Martha Hackett
"this retreat is worth the investment."
You CAN learn what Pedram is teaching and you can learn it in a weekend. If your focus is on a healthy balanced life, this retreat is well worth your investment.
Tammy Saied
"has greatly improved my executive function"
Qi Gong practice has made a tremendous impact on how I feel from day 1. It has made me more calm and relaxed, helped me work on areas of pain throughout my body, and has greatly improved my executive function. All areas of life have improved including health, relationships and career.
Dave Hansen
"I recommend this 
without reservation!"
Susan E Pacheco
"One of the greatest gifts you could give to yourself"
The retreat is awesome and only something that can be experienced in person and sharing the energy of the group. One of the greatest gifts you could give to yourself would be to go to a retreat to learn and be.  Let the instructions teach you how to open up to hear and feel your own guidance. When you allow yourself to be guided by your Heart and Higher self through this process your experience will be truly yours and there will be no need to compare it to anyone or anything else.

It is something that was powerful and enlightening. I have brought the experience home with me and feel a sense of balance and trust in the process, which I needed a reminder of this. I continue to practice and would actually like to pursue more. 
Conor Crippen
"Absolutely worth the price of admission and more"
Absolutely worth the price of admission and more, great experience and met wonderful individuals.  Pedram seems to really care about each individual.  I'm clear now on what matters to me. Which is always a good thing.

I have never witnessed a teacher congratulating every student in such humble and respectful way for completing their course, that when going by them and whispering something very personal and inspiring most of us were moved to tears.
