What is Quantum Neter?




WHAT IS QUANTUM NETER?

QUANTUM¹: neuter noun from Latin quant·us, plural quan·ta, how much
1 a: quantity, amount - b: a specified quantity, portion, part
2 a: any of the very small increments or parcels into which many forms of energy are subdivided - b: any of the small subdivisions of a quantized physical magnitude (as magnetic moment)
NETER²: ancient Khemitian word; commonly translated by traditional Egyptologist
as god or goddess, this translation refers to the nature or figure of a specific deity, one
of the many Egyptian gods. However, in its original Khemitian use, Neter indicated
the universal principles, functions and nature of the One Primordial Unifying Law of Creation. As taught in Khamitian cosmology, even though it is indefineable, it is the reason why the universe can be defined by its coming into forms. This meaning made
it difficult to give it the attention it demands among historians, Egyptologists and traditional mythologists: its acceptance and understanding requires the willingness
to look beyond the apparent simplicity of the ancient Khemitian knowledge as their understanding of the universe was far more complex and profound than ours.

We have been educated to believe that progress means advancement, deeper grasp and understanding, stronger and more refined mastery, an accumulation of knowledge and wisdom that builds block on top of block. Traditional academia simply laughs at the idea that our predecessors and ancestors might have known more than we currently do. Yet, we find incredible amount of evidence, of stories and of teachings that give us a glimpse into a world, long past, of perhaps a much deeper, profound understanding of Man, his nature, and his relationship to the Cosmos.
The Khemitian cosmology and writings about the Neter perhaps are among some of the most ancient available writings of what the most open minded scientist are only recently starting to investigate, understand and discover in fields like quantum physics, electromagnetism, biology and the study of human potential.
The word Neter is also at the root of the Latin noun natura, naturae, and of the verb nasci, to be born, to sprout, come about, come into existence.

So what do I mean with QUANTUM NETER®?
My foundation is in the teachings of my teacher Max Christensen. While it is
true that his teachings have a deep root in Taoism, it is also true that they go much much deeper. He searched and brought together pieces and aspects of knowledge
that throughout history had been scattered among many traditions and cultures. His sincere and profound embodiment of such teachings have made it possible to reconnect and reunify a long lost body of wisdom, science, and spirituality otherwise kept secret and fragmented.
The Khemitian tradition is extremely powerful when understood and embraced.
Taoism becomes natural when one is willing to expand personal perceptions and experiences. But so are many aspects of other large bodies of knowledge.
Choosing the word Neter to convey my insights was the first step into a field less known, experienced and envisioned. When we speak of the Tao, we have all come to a certain understanding of what Tao might be, nevertheless, such understanding, will
fit our personal filters and perceptions, thus limiting its meaning and understanding.
What do we read in the Tao Te Ching? "The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao".
Within my work - as well as life! - I hope to remain free of my own ideas, opinions, methods, paths and the like. In my search for The One Law of the universe and the understanding of Self, I wanted to break free as much as possible from anything already known, agreed upon, from everything openly or less openly structured within the dogma and mind set of the system itself.
My search has been a journey of un-learning, more so than a search for learning.
So what is Quantum Neter again? It is the door from where to glimpse into your inner dormant potential and nature, it is always present within you, and you can use it anyway you want. It's an open mind and open heart "attitude", the learning-unlearning of who you really are by unmediated direct personal experience and self realization, as supported and pointed to by my guidance, coaching and instructions.
Apart from the science behind it and the ancient wisdom that inspires me, I take those spiritual and scientific thought models and principles, all that stuff that we think we know, and I make it useful to you, according to you, your reality, and your uniqueness.
Quantum Neter is an opportunity you give yourself to see beyond your own understanding of self. What you will find and discover is solely up to you and what you will allow yourself to see.
If flowers would not exist, could you imagine them?

A word about my writing. I like to write. I like to write as if my words were paint and my thoughts a paint brush. My first language is Italian and my mind must flex and bend, not simply to translate but to convey what it is that I am feeling or wishing to say.
I choose my words for what they can communicate and evoke, not to speak properly. As I bend my mind I will bend writing rules, simply because, at times, it allows me to say what the proper way of saying it would limit, and condition, in its deepest meanings. When I write, I am sitting in exchange with you, not merely telling you something. Thus, if my writing makes you say here and there "What ??" consider that it might have been intentional, so to prompt you to follow my thoughts and not yours, so to invite you to understand what I see and not what others might have already seen, and said, in their own words, somewhere else .

If you are ... There is much we can do together.
For simplicity, we can divide my work in three main areas. However, each student or client will receive a very personalized program, tailored to his/her needs and situation. You have:
  • Max Christensen's KUNLUN® System Seminars and one on one instructions
  • Matrix Energetics® transformative sessions 
  • Mentoring and coaching, intuitive healing and inner transformation, perceptual transformation and Self discovery, sessions and steps meant to support and be a foundation for the discovery within of self limiting and self imposed limitations. 
A very important distinction: please note that the KUNLUN® System and Matrix Energetics® have no relation to each other. They are completely separate and different. They simply are my two choices for exploration, independent from each other. Yet, they are at the foundation of my work and they are what I can offer to students and clients, from my uniqueness to theirs!

KUNLUN System




MAX CHRISTENSEN'S KUNLUN® SYSTEM
KUNLUN is a very powerful, direct path to self awareness. It utilizes a unique magnetic field that prepares and protects the body from an overt and long standing increase in chi or bio-etheric energy.
The energy practice taught in this system is designed for and balanced by the KUNLUN magnetic (heart) field generated within this system.
Often we see that systems that increase the fire element, such as Kundalini, or the systems that increase the Chi as in Chi Gong, lead to biological strain in the mildest
of cases or to more complex neurological dysfunctions with potential for breakdown
of all systems in the body when the effects are more severe. Such fire systems lack the proper preparation of the connection of all three dan tiens (dantian, dan t'ian, dan tien or tan t'ien) in the strong magnetic field produced by the heart (middle dan tien). The KUNLUN® System guarantees proper preparation of the nervous system and organs involved making it a safe but most powerful path.

Max chose the name KUNLUN® System because it represents the many aspects
and philosophies taught by his different teachers. It represents the idea of the
path of no more learning, symbolized by the image of the peak of a mountain.  The mountain top also represents the top of the head. The KUNLUN System is for all these reasons also representative of a path that a students can perfect without the dogma and structure found in other systems and without the reliance on a guru.

It is said that one hour of this practice equals to hundred hours of any other system. Indeed, I have spent some time asking fellow practitioners who practice other methods as well, what is the difference between their other systems and Max's KUNLUN. One
by one all came to the observation and conclusion that without KUNLUN they would not have probably experienced the expansion they feel they have found in their systems,
no matter the system, its nature or the long term study of the same. They all observed that the KUNLUN practice seems to have brought them a directness, a clarity and a simplicity that was somewhat missing, thus reconnecting them to that dynamic truth within, which is truly beyond the system itself.

The KUNLUN System brings forth some of the most ancient and powerful teachings
of inner alchemy. What it teaches was once a secret, only taught to a few in temples and monasteries, in ancient China.
It was through a lifetime of inner and outer work that Max was able to reconnect us to these forgotten teachings and practices. These ancient teachings bring you to a direct and immediate experience and realization of your self awareness by quickly awakening your true Self - if so can be called- your dormant nature, and they are all that comprises the KUNLUN® System.
Regardless, it would be a big mistake to think that this system is a system suitable
only for spiritual people and not suitable for those who like to seek answers through scientific, rational or more empiric methods.
It is extremely valuable to understand that KUNLUN is a system that goes beyond spiritual or scientific and beyond the meaning of system itself. When engaged in the search for a tangible proof of our deeper true nature, the KUNLUN system is direct and immediate. Despite its breathing methods, its meditation form or exercises, KUNLUN is formless in nature and free of doctrine, dogma, thought forms and rituals, simply designed with the purpose and intent to reconnect and reactivate the inner primordial energy we are made of and that we were never without.

On a mundane level, one must recognize and understand the nature within to live in harmony and balance, to be able to live in a moderate and balanced way, to be able to support the coexistence of self, family and work through our relationships, community, and in relation to the very Earth and Cosmos we live in, on, from and by. Thus, where do we stand, really?

When we awaken - in some words, when we become again aware of our true nature - we can draw from our natural unlimited potential: the divine spark, the primordial light, the zero point field, the field of the heart, you choose how to call it. This potential, this nature, is indeed dormant and forgotten within us but it is, nevertheless, our nature.
There are many paths that lead to such destination, to this discovery of Self. However, often, the path is mistaken for the destination, for what it is that we are seeking. As many teachers have already said "the path, the method, is but a boat to get one across and once across, it is to be discarded and not to be carried on one's back". It is often forgotten that we are all at different places in our journey of discovery of ourselves and that each individual has unique qualities, strengths and weaknesses.
Max Christensen’s KUNLUN® System teaches you from within, allowing you to find your own unique way.

The KUNLUN System is a Water Path, the path of perfect balance and harmony,
the path of non-dualism, a path that is believed to be the natural state of mind and Spirit. This System gives you the opportunity to initiate your inner transformation and
if it is studied and practiced regularly, it leads to the realization and fulfillment of your fundamental nature.
Max was able not only to rediscover and reconnect the tools once used to support and guide the individual's self awakening: he went further. He dedicated himself to make these tools accessible and suitable to our modern life, matching the velocity
and intensity of our times. His KUNLUN System will break through the self limitations and the limitations added throughout history by systems, gurus, teachers and guides.
These teachings are a practice of direct rapid re-enlightenment. When practiced regularly KUNLUN will purify your body and mind. As all the organs in the body are affected at their most basic level, so are the mind and energy affected and transformed.
Stress, worries, emotions, habitual patterns, as well as a busy hyperactive mind and a deeply engaged intellect, prevent successful and stable access to our natural potential and transformation. Thus, it may come to no surprise, that to access the so called field of the heart, one must energetically purify the mind and the body, rid them completely of the energies and frequencies of stress, worries, emotions, feelings, memories, past experiences, the energies and frequencies of daily life ... as we know it.    



KUNLUN® System is a Water Path.
The pineal and pituitary gland, when they are harmoniously resonant, create a unique substance called amrita. It is this Water of Life that provides the downward flow, the water path of Max’s teachings and practices, making KUNLUN a unique and powerful System, a unique gift that can open and grow only from within.
KUNLUN is also Art Of Livingness.
When the pineal and pituitary gland have achieved a harmonic vibration with the heart's sound waves, a standing wave arises and vibrates in the skull’s floor, triggering a standing wave within the ventricles of the brain. For the heart sound waves to achieve this frequency, it is required that a very specific, and precise alignment within one’s own energy is reached.
It is the state of pure potential and perception without prejudice, preconception or illusion. It is the state of pure experience without labels and definitions, the state of non-dualism believed to be the true state before the mind. Higher consciousness and vibration is not a subjective, arbitrary idea or state.
Self awakening and the state of non dualism is determined by several very deep and specific, emotional, and physiological changes that Kunlun will allow the practitioner to achieve if practiced regularly and through every life experience.
Remember, you are the beginning and the end of the path that you alone choose. Your mind dictates how you awaken, where your path takes you, and what you may attain in this lifetime.” ~ Max Christensen

 KUNLUN AS A SYSTEM OF RE-AWAKENING OPENS THE DOOR TO:
✦ Realize your non-dualistic nature through the direct, immediate experience of the self awakening of your original essence.
✦ Release the mentally induced physical conditions and restore health and vitality by the regained awareness of Self.
✦ Gain true insight of the nature of your own limitations and to understand how you can release such hidden forms through your own body .
✦ Know that doubt, fear, pain and limitations can no longer control your life, so that you can live in spiritual awareness as the ancient Masters once did.
✦ Understand through your self-healing that you are a perfect being, once again self perfecting, expressing itself towards the great mystery and thus engaged in healing and creating, both, the universe inside and out.
✦ Understanding that no middle man, guru or teacher is needed once you see the one law of nature within yourself and within all living things.

The KUNLUN® System teaches different practices and is given in levels. Within the System there is also a specific practice called KUNLUN® Method, not to be confused with the whole system. The KUNLUN Method starts with some levels of breathing and meditation, but it merges with the advanced practices meant to prepare the body for the stronger energies developed by the correct aligning of the three dan tiens within the heart's electromagnetic field. When this level first activates, it is normal for the student to experience spontaneous body movements, uncontrollable trembling, laugh or cry for no apparent reason. The manifestations are different and personal. Many will feel heat or cold for some time. Some may have visions, some will experience the third eye opening. Many noticed their body healing from previous maladies and ills. The experiences are truly many, unique to you and quite profound. Practicing the KUNLUN Method regularly will purify the entire body as the seventy-two thousand nerves, called nadis, are toned and cleared by the psychic heat that is generated. The end result is that the nerves can sustain a much stronger magnetic potential, which is very important, because the further you go with this practice the stronger the internal current becomes.
Other practices taught on the Beginning KUNLUN System Level One are:
  • Red Phoenix One: It is one of the most Ancient Teachings of the Mao shan branch of Taoists, once only taught to the head instructor of a monastery or temple. It is the practice of rapid re-enlightenment, bringing about the awakening of one's dormant spiritual and energetic potential quickly, safely and without effort.
  • Golden Flower: Uses the three energy centers to refine alchemically the qualities of the body, mind and spirit.
  • 5 Elements: Strengthens the organs by balancing the emotions and it is the physical building block toward spiritual freedom.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHO IS MAX CHRISTENSEN?
Drawing from his deep desire to understand
and learn man's real nature and dormant potential, Max Christensen spent his life studying and practicing the ancient teachings of the indigenous people of North America, Hawaii, Tibet, Mongolia, ancient Asia and ancient Egypt. Within these traditions he is known by various names including Lama Ngakpa Dorje (Tibetan), Ching Fung Dao Shr (Chinese Taoist), and Sifu Max. But by his students he likes to be called simply Max.
His path of Self discovery began with his early childhood. At age six he embarked on his journey and commenced studies with Wudang Master
Wu Xiao Deng of the Hubei province, studying traditional Wudang Taoism, Baqua, Qigong and various Daoyin methods with the objective to strengthen his body, mind, and spirit. His thirst for knowledge and understanding of spiritual truths inspired him to travel around the world and led him to study with many traditional teachers from diverse cultures. Max understood quickly that for every shred of ancient tradition he found there was a common root in another tradition, a truth intrinsic to the practices and even deeper, to man as man and therefore to the nature of the universe itself.
Max's great virtue to be truthful and open minded allowed him to never make any practice or system about himself, or about the teachings, the systems and practices, or, for that matter, the systems within which the practices were encoded. Max went
on to search all the possible pieces of wisdom he could find, wisdom that once was
a way of life and then, for many reasons, was spread out and relegated in separated parts within the ancient Mystery Schools, forgotten, stripped of its simplicity, made complex, mysterious and secret. It was because of this turn in history that today we find ourselves either adhering to the most generally accepted Newtonian school of thought that regards the universe as a factual reality, that tells of this universe as separated and made of parts, or we choose mysticism, maybe metaphysic, or something along the line of spiritual, often discarding one way in favor of the other.
But Max's spiritual vision and ability to merge with the experience were always very profound and his eyes for science very quick and intuitive.
Having spent more than 40 years immersed into so many traditions, Max was able to construct a system that is suitable to anybody and anywhere. Max stripped away all the added complexities, the robes and the ceremonials. He was able to improve and improvise on the practices he learned and was able to make them easily suitable and useable for modern men and women, regardless of their views and obligations in life, eliminating the obstacle of a choice between scientific or spiritual and between monastic or mundane life. His system is not the same in style, form or result as that
of his teachers. The KUNLUN system stresses uniqueness, constant growth, and the empowerment of humanity through the individual's realization of Self.
In addition to his extensive education and training in the Taoist arts Max spent time in Mongolia studying the Mongolian Blue Wolf Shamanic tradition. Here he learned the traditional way of the Shaman and was entrusted the tradition's teachings. Max enjoys teaching these Shamanic arts and helping a seeker experience the way of the shaman. His work with the Mongolian tradition led him to the healing ways of the Apache and Navaho and gained him membership in the medicine path of the Red Willow Society in New Mexico. He is also trained in the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi Lapa’au from the PeleKu and KaneLu traditions and he has received empowerment of the Santig Dorje Phurba from Ralo Rinpoche of the Nyingma order of Tibetan Buddhism. Ralo Rinpoche gave him the title Ngakpha Dorje which identifies Max as One who has the power to awaken dormant powers within.
After over twenty years studying with his most recent teacher from the Shang-ching Taoist tradition of Southern China, Max has learned, has fully embodied and teaches the extraordinary Taoist alchemical practices which lead to the Gold Dragon Body attainment (known in other traditions as Rainbow Body, the Light Body, the Perfected body, the Diamond Body, et cetera)
Max Christensen has taught over 10,000 people worldwide, and continues to teach small classes for those interested in learning and cultivating the ancient knowledge and practices, while discovering the mysteries of these arts and the wisdom they have preserved.
“Remember - Max says - you are the beginning and the end of the path that you alone choose. Your mind dictates how you awaken, where your path takes you, and what you may attain in this lifetime.”

WHO ARE THE APPRENTICES THAT TEACH MAX'S KUNLUN® SYSTEM?
In Max's words: "In my tradition, becoming an Apprentice means that these people have learned the basic root of the system I teach. It does not mean that they are in any way masters. They are still learning how to teach others. When you go to an Apprentice, please realize that they understand and practice the methods, but they
are still learning. This is the art part of the system. So, please remember that we are all still learning, even I. And you will notice that I never like to call myself teacher,
or Sifu". So, as you can see, there are students who have been certified by Max to teach the basic root of the system and this was done to help Max teach and reach more areas that he could cover by himself.
Once you are well on your way with the study and practicing of the KUNLUN® System, in order to reach the highest potential of this art, you must receive a transmission directly from Max who is the authentic and only master of the KUNLUN System. Only those who have mastered this art can give the proper transmission at this level, and the Facilitators/Apprentices have not yet achieved the required cultivation and mastery.

IS THERE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MAX'S KUNKUN SYSTEM AND THE TAOIST SYSTEM KUNLUN PAI? WHY THE NAME KUNLUN?

Yes. Max's KUNLUN System and Kunlun Pai are different. Kunlun Pai is a martial art system and a qi gong style. The KUNLUN® System is unique and its only teacher and sole founder is Max Christensen.
Kunlun is a mountain range in China and for this reason the name itself, Kunlun, may appear in various forms or system, but the presence of the word Kunlun in a name is not an indication of similarity, affiliation or derivation among the many systems. Max drew from the many teachers
he studied with and from his own mastery of all their forms, aspects, philosophies and teachings improved by his own personal refinement, he formulated the KUNLUN system. His system is not the same in style, form or result as that
of his teachers. Max's KUNLUN system stresses uniqueness, constant growth, and the empowerment of humanity though the individual's awakening. Max stripped away all added complexities, the robes and the ceremonials. He was able to improve and improvise on the practices he learned and was able to make them suitable and easily useable for modern men and women. Max chose the name KUNLUN® System because it represents the many aspects and philosophies taught by his different teachers. It represents the idea of the path of no more learning, symbolized by the image of the peak of a mountain. The mountain top also reflects the top of the head. The KUNLUN System is for all these reasons also representative of a path that a students can perfect without the dogma and the structure found in other systems and without the reliance on a guru.
The teachings at the root of Max's system have never before taught outside of temples and monasteries. Even then, only the head master was bestowed such knowledge and it was kept in the utmost secret temples. You are not going to learn these teachings anywhere else other than from Max or his certified apprentices.
(March 2012) Originally Max called his system Kunlun Nei Gung System, but to avoid
confusion between his system and other martial arts, he changed the name to KUNLUN®System. KUNLUN® System or KUNLUN® in capital letters and written with the ® symbol, guarantees that the system in question is Max Christensen's original system.

WHAT MAKES MAX'S KUNLUN UNIQUE?
Max's KUNLUN stresses uniqueness, constant growth, and the empowerment of humanity through the individual's realization of Self. We are all in a very unique place in our journey and rarely this fact is recognized and enhanced in traditional systems
of self realization or other paths to enlightenment. The KUNLUN System pays focused attention to and builds on the uniqueness of the student, addressing and working with his/her strengths and weaknesses, so to guarantee a constant growth and evolution, free from the limitations imposed by teachers, gurus, dogma, doctrines, rituals and beliefs of any kind.
On a more technical level, this system is designed to sustain and harmonize the electromagnetic field generated with the practice by the heart. The unique magnetic field generated prepares and protects the body from an overt and long standing increase in chi or bio-etheric energy. Often we see that systems that increase the fire element, such as Kundalini, or systems that increase Chi as in Chi Gong, lead to biological strain, in the mildest of cases, or to more complex neurological dysfunctions with potential for breakdown of all systems in the body when the effects are more severe. Such fire systems lack the proper preparation of the connection of all three dan tiens (dantian, dan t'ian, dan tien or tan t'ien) in the strong magnetic field produced by the heart (middle dan tien). The KUNLUN® System guarantees proper preparation of the nervous system and of the organs involved making it a safe but most powerful path. This practice has both inner and outer meaning. It signifies the reunion of the universal inside (microcosm) with universal outside (macrocosm), revealing to the practitioner the secret within the secret.
Max's system contains all the wisdom that the ancients strongly safeguarded and taught only to a few, but it also provides the finest skills and the refinement needed to work our way through our modern and frenetic lives without the need to withdraw from our personal and social responsibilities or relationships.

CAN A STUDENT SAFELY PRACTICE OTHER SYSTEMS OF QI, MEDITATION, YOGA OR DO ENERGY WORK WHILE PRACTICING THE KUNLUN SYSTEM? 



The KUNLUN System is designed to prepare the nervous system and the organs in the body for the proper alignment and connection of the three dan tiens (dantian, dan t'ian, dan tien or tan t'ien) within the strong magnetic field produced by the heart (middle dan tien). Systems that increase the fire element, such as Kundalini, or systems that increase Chi as in Chi Gong, do not prepare the body for this alignment and connection and leave the body unable to sustain and safely use the strong energy developed and necessary for advanced practices.  
When the necessary preparation and proper alignment are missing, it is likely for the body to develop biological strain, in the mildest of cases, or complex neurological dysfunctions with potential for breakdown of all systems in the body when the effects are more severe. 
For this reason it is imperative that the KUNLUN System be practiced as a complete system and not mixed with any other method. If you want to practice other systems, take at least one day break before and after the KUNLUN practice to separate it from your other exercises. 
Since the KUNLUN® System guarantees proper preparation of the nervous system and of the organs involved it is a safe but also a very powerful path.
For those who practice various forms of yoga, a don’t method is Bikram (hot) yoga, bastrika methods or the various forms of kundalini.
Kriya yoga will work fine with KUNLUN, as long as the practices are separated by at least four hours. White tantric kundalini that uses mantras is fine. Emptiness methods, laughing methods, mantras, and other Taoist methods like Five Elements, Pole standing and Chinese martial arts can also complement this art, but do keep your one day break in between practices.

WHAT ARE THE OBSTACLES OF THE KUNLUN SYSTEM?
The only obstacles are those created by the student just as the results are solely dependent on the dedication and practice of the student.
As Max says: "Remember, you are the beginning and the end of the path that you alone choose. Your mind dictates how you awaken, where your path takes you, and what you may attain in this lifetime". Students often forget that 90% of the work is in the purification of the mind. Our emotions and ego are what determines success or failure with the high level practices.
Many fall-off the path because they do not want to change the attitudes of their mind.
The common fallings are some of the common behavioral traits that we came to call ego, but truly insisting on anything that reaffirms separation and selfish behavior is going to make the journey hard and difficult. Blaming others or your teachers for one's own inability to face hidden things within oneself is also a common obstacle. These things are the result of only focusing on the lower virtues.


Once the mind has grasped these lower virtues, they become ingrained in one's behavior and one's understanding of life and self. As a result, overcoming these attitudes of the mind might be difficult and will require strength and determination.
An important factor is to keep humble. Know your true place in the universe. Live within the heart. Realize that there is more in the universe then what you know.
The ego is important in growing as it is a driving force, but also you must know
when to let it go. As Max likes to say: "Live your art. Do not be selectively virtuous here or there".
When one lives by positive virtues, the mind and the heart connect through an energetic channel known as the “katika” channel, the channel of clarity. This is when the positive child-like heart energy merges with the open and empty mind. Remember, we already have the awakened and enlightened mind within us, but it is our mundane clouded mind that prevents us from realizing this fact. It is only the living in virtue and the daily choices we make that will determine how far we travel on the road of self awakening and self realization and if we will indeed embrace our own awakening while in this human body. Also realize that what sounds like a philosophical way to address life and livingness, the living by the positive virtues does correspond to factual changes in the energetic field of the individual. These changes are necessary
if one wishes to arrive at the highest practices and to his/her own awakening. The Rainbow Body, Light Body, Perfected Body, Gold Dragon Body, et cetera, are the reflection of a precise state of the energetic field of the individual, where the energy is in proper frequency and alignment, and body, mind and spirit have once again connected resonating harmoniously in their primordial field.



IS A STUDENT EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN GATHERINGS, RETREATS, PRACTICES  OR FUNCTIONS?  IS MEMBERSHIP WITH A GROUP OR TEACHER REQUIRED? 
No. The KUNLUN System does not interfere with personal life style and doesn't require a student to change or abandon his/her life responsibilities, preferences, religious beliefs, nor does it require long hours of practice or study, alone or with a group. The KUNLUN System is designed to align and contribute to one's daily life and it is through daily life that this system finds its more important and profound meaning. Once a student has found and decided that he/she wishes to deepen the study and understanding of the system he/she is welcome to attend more seminars and classes when they are offered directly by Max or by any one of his apprentices. It is solely up to the student the choice to progress with this system and how far he/she wants to go with the learning available. Some want to study and practice to improve their health and perhaps are seeking inner peace, others are dedicated to their self awakening. Either choice gives profound rewards when the practice is lived from the heart and
not from the desire to acquire powerful skills and abilities to control and manipulate life.

WHY IS THE KUNLUN SYSTEM CALLED A WATER PATH AND IS THERE A SCIENTIFIC BASE BEHIND THIS SYSTEM THAT CAN EXPLAIN IT?


With KUNLUN we practice the Water path or downward flow through the spine compared to other methods that use the upward flow or Fire path. The KUNLUN path is gentle, peaceful, without force, while the fire path is more aggressive in nature, meant to open the chakras through alternate nostril breathing, fire breathing and other fire based exercises. The KUNLUN path triggers and arises, gently but precisely, a balanced and properly set alignment between the pineal and pituitary gland and the heart. When the pineal and pituitary gland resonate harmoniously they create a unique substance called amrita.
It is this Water of Life that provides the downward flow, the water path of Max’s teachings and practices, making KUNLUN a unique and powerful System, a unique gift that can open and grow only from within. The pineal and pituitary glands must reach a harmonic vibration and must also vibrate in harmony with the heart's sound waves. When this alignment is in place, a standing wave arises and vibrates in the skull’s floor, triggering a standing wave within the ventricles of the brain. For the heart sound waves to achieve this frequency a very specific, and precise alignment within one’s own energy must be produced. This is the state of pure potential and perception without prejudice, preconception or illusion. It is the state of pure experience without labels and definitions, the state of non-dualism believed to be the true state of spirit and before the mind.
Self awakening and the state of non dualism is determined by several very deep and specific, emotional, and physiological changes that Kunlun will allow the practitioner to achieve if practiced regularly and through every life experience.
KUNLUN restores the natural energetic connection between body, mind and spirit in a very direct, safe and lasting manner.


WHAT HAPPENS DURING KUNLUN PRACTICE?
Max's KUNLUN System teaches different practices and it is done in levels. Within the KUNLUN System there is also a single practice called KUNLUN® Method, not to be confused
with the whole system. The KUNLUN Method starts with some levels of breathing and meditation,
but it merges with the advanced practices meant to prepare the body for the stronger energies developed by the correct aligning of the three dan tiens within the heart's electromagnetic field. When this level first activates, it is normal for the student to experience spontaneous body movements, uncontrollable trembling or shaking, laugh or cry for no apparent reason. The rising manifestations are different and personal. The body shakes and spontaneous movements indicate the purification of the channels and of the internal organs. This is a release of past emotions, feelings and experiences whose energies have been stored at different energetic levels. Eventually the movements will subside and may even stop as the channels open. Many will feel heat or cold for some time. This happens because the channels in the body are becoming more conductive to the electrical and magnetic energy generated in the body. Some may have visions, some will experience the third eye opening. Many noticed their body healing from previous maladies and ills. The experiences are truly many, unique to you and quite profound.
Eventually one will experience bliss and altered states of consciousness. Some students get too attached to the bliss, as it can be addictive just like a drug. So when the bliss experience arises, one must feel it and remain unattached. Remember, you are always in control and it will serve you better if you lead the bliss into emptiness.
Practicing the KUNLUN Method regularly will purify the entire body as the seventy-two thousand nerves, the nadis, are toned and cleared by the psychic heat that is generated with the practice.
The end result is that the nerves can sustain a much stronger magnetic potential, which is very important, because the further you go with this practice the stronger
the internal current becomes. It can take up to six months to cultivate and refine the practice before advancing to the next level.

CAN ANYBODY STUDY THE KUNLUN SYSTEM? ARE THERE ANY RESTRICTIONS?
A student must be at least 18 years old and able to be legally responsible for self.
The System is not taught to individuals with cancer or bipolar and mental disorders.
In our tradition cancer reflects the inability to decide one's own path and direction in life. Because the qi and the blood flow together, the nature of the KUNLUN practice could increase and accelerate the cancer's growth.
Individuals with bipolar disorder should also not practice the system because they need to ground their mind in the outer world first. Remember, awakening is 99% clearing the mind of its negative virtues/energies and conditions of the ego that leave
a specific energetic signature in the individual's organ systems. When the energy of KUNLUN flows through the student, the mind and body purifies by refining and changing the state of the current energy in the body. The body is the container of the experiences of the mind and it reflects both positive and negative attributes generated by these experiences through its state of health or illness. The body heals and purifies with the mind when one or the other releases all energetic levels that we identify in the various forms of negativity and illness.
Drugs, depression medications, marjuana and alcohol are also dangerous with the practice of KUNLUN and at least one year of sobriety is required. Aside from the health risks, consider that the use of such substances is not beneficial to one's practice as you want a clear mind during your awakening. Furthermore, the altered state or relaxation that one experiences while on drugs or alcohol comes at a price. The ming men, also known as the Gate of life, closes, and the life force diminishes.
For the inner light to become clear, one must also keep clear mind and clear body.


The KUNLUN System is safe to practice during pregnancy, but should be suspended once into the sixth month and it can be safely resumed after the baby's birth.
Last, but not least, please realize that I reserve the right to refuse service and teaching to anybody and at my sole discretion. Answering questions and providing information doesn't guarantee acceptance of a student or client.


WHAT IS THE ONE THOUGHT YOU WOULD HIGHLIGHT AND INSIST UPON AS THE MOST USEFUL SUPPORT TO THIS SYSTEM ? 


As with any true Self searching journey, in our KUNLUN practice there will be highs and lows. There will be bliss and there will be emotions stirring and moving through your whole being. This is the One Law of nature and our world. But if you live in the moment, unattached to the experiences as they occur, living lightly, emptying the mind and taking the time to look within, not just living this art here and there, it will become easier and easier to grow through your own self discovery. Live your every moment as if you would feel the steps of a dance, unbothered by the thoughts of what the next step will be, and what was the step you just danced ... let one foot follow the other, naturally, and feel every step completely ... with your whole being. This is what I call surrender. Surrend to your practice completely, with your whole being. This gives rise to the bliss, and if you do not attach to the bliss, the bliss will open the door to your deepest blissful awareness. Life will move around you, testing your every thought and resolve. Give all of yourself to every moment life offers you, then let go. Realize the natural rhythm of the beating Heart and follow it unconcerned.
