FU-DING CHENG HAS BEEN LEADING spiritual/shamanic workshops since 1995. Distilled from
a life-long quest involving Eastern meditation in the Himalayas and Chinese Kung-Fu, and culminating
in Meso-American shamanic wisdom traditions, his classes include…

  • once-a-month evening sessions,
  • week-end seminars,
  • power journeys,
  • private consultations, and
  • communal ceremonies.

While apprenticing with Toltec shaman don Miguel Ruiz (The Four Agreements), Fu-Ding woke from “the
dream of the planet” as a result of a momentous ritual among the pyramids in Mexico. Drawing from the
East and West, his workshops provide practical techniques towards self-illumination and personal freedom.

Once a Month Evening Sessions &
Weekend Seminars...

Contemporary life with its accelerated change, complexity and oppressions brings with it challenges worthy of a spiritual warrior. These gatherings include drumming rituals, instructions, and exercises that allow us to transcend our conditioning and experience the vastness of our being. Personal power, intent, controlled folly, the Four Agreements, and related topics are presented.

Power Journeys …

These seven to ten day trips to sacred sites of the earth capitalize on the energy exuding naturally from power
spots of the earth for self--transformation. Trips have
included Teotihuacan, Mexico; Santorini, Greece, and
Mauai, Hawaii.
Private Consultations...

Private consultations are available depending on scheduling commitments. These sessions apply shamanic techniques to one’s unique life situations.

Communal Ceremonies...

Public gatherings, celebrations, weddings, initiations and rites of passage have been
conducted through the years. Past events include:

    Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department

    This ritual ceremony opened the Elements Art Exhibit at the LA Municipal Art Gallery; by honoring the spirits of the basic elements ----- fire, water, earth and air correlating with the four aspects of humans, spirit, emotion, body and intellect ----- we bring harmony to the full dimension of who we are as human beings.
    North Carolina School of the Arts, Filmmaking Dept.

    ShowBiz Expo, LA Convention Center The intense complexity of a film production can be seen as a perfect opportunity to practice spiritual warriorship. This ground-breaking seminar was first presented at ShowBiz Expo, and later expanded into the curriculum at the film school in North Carolina. It provided tools that not only makes one a more powerful filmmaker, but ultimately leads towards self-illumination and personal freedom.
    Custom-designed for the bride and groom, this ceremony interwove Christian, Buddhist and Sufi elements, and revealed the underlying truth in all sacred traditions.

A magical moment with the power of intent:

For days before the wedding ceremony, driving rain besieged all the islands of Hawaii. In spite of the stunning beauty of the outdoor site and a canvas tarp, alternative plans had to be made. While many began fearing the image of mud-stained gowns, all were asked to join in a formal invocation to Kanaloa, the Hawaiian spirit of ocean and water for a reprieve from the downpour.

On the day of the wedding, the rain showed no signs of abating. Still, everyone was guided to hold to the intent of clear weather. Two hours before the ceremony, the rain miraculously subsided giving just enough time to take wedding photos. As guests began to arrive, they were astonished at the clear weather; the rest of the islands were still being besieged by rain.

By the time the ceremony began, there were even patches of blue sky. The wedding continued outdoors, the couple pronounced husband and wife (still no rain), and finally, to close the ceremony, Kanaloa was formally thanked for the reprieve, and released. Immediately, raindrops began to hit the canvas tarp, and within seconds, the downpour resumed as furiously as before. Everyone looked up and laughed in amazement, but by now no one cared about rain because they knew they would be safe in the pavilion where the reception had just begun.
