Kulshan College was created for the study of sustainable healing and spiritual progress. We emphasize learning through doing the work in a supervised environment, rather than an academic approach that does not directly apply the learning in the world. We are learning how to be healthy in a sick world and part of that means helping others. We provide healing services to the community as a spiritual practice. Kulshan College is a 501c(3) non profit organization, and is the only place in the world where people can learn to practice and be treated with Tao Fawu Qigong and Shengong. Tao Fawu is a contemporary evolution of the deepest of Chinese and other traditional medical practices, with the purpose of furthering human evolution as well as furthering the globalization of traditional Chinese medicine. We cultivate an understanding of a philosophy that underlies all of life, teaching students to heal illness at its source.
For the first time in the history of Kulshan College, we now have our own home base. We have been hard at work transforming a small farm in Nooksack into a Monastery. The Tao Fawu Monastic Farm is in the far north region of Washington State, outside of Bellingham and on the way towards Mount Baker, aka Komo Kulshan, the mountain our school was named for. Kulshan College is based in the farmhouse, where we are developing classroom space, an office, a music room, a children's area, a library, and dorm rooms for monks / nuns (nunmonks?) and visitors. We have a barn, a chicken coop, an enclosed garden, and goat pens. We serve organic, vegetarian meals daily, and are developing protocols for a monastic lifestyle open to all. We welcome visitors by appointment (email address below), those seeking a spiritual retreat, and those who wish to pursue a monastic lifestyle, regardless of religious affiliation. We are non-denominational and take our inclusivity commitments seriously. Since we are a non-profit 501c(3), we always welcome charitable donations as well as labor contributions. Inquire if you would like to come do chores with us. Our evening goat herding protocol is especially popular! Our neighbors love seeing us out with the goats. Due to the current needs of the monastic farm, all of our labs, clinics, classes, and more urban pursuits are currently on hold. We offer our thanks to Sherwood Pidcock especially, for helping make our dream of a home come true, and to Emma and Eli Kiefer for hard work above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you!
Rooted in the monastic tradition, honor is given at Kulshan College to acknowledge virtue and merit. The willingness and ability to help others is highly valued. Progress is demonstrated by treating clients in our labs and clinics, taking on responsibility for the day-to-day operations of Kulshan College, and a genuine spirit of generosity and compassion towards others within and outside of our community. The Tao Fawu Monastery is the core of Kulshan College, where we cultivate sustainability, independence from mainstream culture, and practice together daily.
As part of our community, one can choose to follow mindful monastic protocol and begin learning simple but not well known truths about health and healing on an individual basis. The body will not heal without a healthy lifestyle and so we must each choose to examine our lives and make changes to become healthy in a way that suits each of us. The Monastic tradition offers a way to practice healthy living on all levels, with the support of like-minded others. As a community, the Tao Fawu Monastery is committed to counteracting the greed and hypocrisy of the American Medical system by offering free health care to all, no questions asked. We are against profiteering and exploiting the suffering of the people. Our basic classes are reasonably priced and open to anyone.
Kulshan College Maintenance Crew is hard at work in our community. The Crew offers work-for-hire in Whatcom County. We offer skillful labor in yardwork, housecleaning, gardening, tree pruning, goat weed whacking, childcare, and more. Please contact Kate Johnson Kiefer, the Crew Manager, to hire our students for your project, large or small. Mindful work is our goal.
Though we have the same financial needs as others in our culture, our stated values focus primarily on the intangible and sustainable joys in life, the ones that continue beyond this life and ourselves. Kulshan College of Intuitive Medicine is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that gratefully accepts donations to further our work of offering free treatment, including travel to offer our services outside of our immediate geographic area. We also apply donations to our scholarship fund.
We welcome you to join our social network on Kulshan College Facebook and Google+. We also welcome the public to come in for free diagnosis and treatment in our labs, and low cost combined diagnosis and treatment in our Allergy Clinic and Brain Clinic (Seattle and Bellingham, Washington, USA). You are welcome to take basic classes without making any other commitment. You do not need to have a medical condition to better your health and understanding. We do not offer a Western medical diagnosis or practice conventional Western medicine. We share our observations and practice an evolved version of Chinese medical diagnosis. Our treatment method is Tao Fawu medical qigong and shengong, a gentle, hands-off form of evolved traditional healing.
