Stan Pannone's Journey
Stan Pannone began his spiritual path in his early twenties with Transcendental Meditation. He practiced diligently for over ten years. Even at a young age, he realized the importance of taking time to create space. The serious practice of TM opened the concept of going beyond his awareness.
His fascination with Eastern cultures led him to Tang Soo Do Karate. (Tae Kwan Do) Stan earned his black belt at age 40, which took incredible self-discipline.
"That effort has served me well in Emei." Studying an extremely hard-style martial art with over fourteen forms to learn, practice, and teach, eventually took a physical toll. So he made a gradual switch to yoga, until discovering qigong in 2006. He has also studied Acupressure, Reflexology, and Chinese Astrology.
Discovered Chinese Healing
Stan began training qigong in 2006 with qigong master Dr. Ming Wu, who was also a Doctor of Chinese Medicine. His teachings came from a family tradition. Stan learned about Chinese herbs, Tong Ren Therapy, and an array of other healing techniques. "His weekly classes were really powerful and I learned some very useful healing techniques along with the concept of working within a group energy field."
After studying two years with Dr. Ming Wu, Stan was introduced to Emei Qigong by Master Patricia Bolger. "I was captivated by the connection I had with the Emei System.
The great thing about Emei is the forms are all based on healing, balancing yin/yang, and stimulating the 5 elements in your body." He then began formal training and completed Levels 1, 2, and 3 over the next three years.
"I was fascinated with the empowered objects and began using the Jade and the Meta Qi-Zhen to help myself and others. The shift that happened in my own personal life was really making a huge impact on me.
I became more calm and more patient, had less stress, and was less reactive. Most importantly, I was able to step back and allow the "Qi" to help resolve issues. Qigong is quite subtle but the change comes slowly in a very powerful way."
Discovering Healing with Qi has added an incredibly positive layer to my life.
Stan Pannone Studied in China with Grandmaster Fu Wei Zhong
In 2014 Stan took an enormous step forward by going to China to study directly with Grandmaster Fu Wei Zhong.
At that time he participated in the twenty-day Level 4 training to earn his teaching certification for Emei Qigong. "The training went incredibly deep. You had to be all-in to make it through." A few years later Stan did Level 5 with Grandmaster Fu. And in 2019 he hosted a Level 4 training for other Emei teachers at his house. "I can hardly believe all the personal time I had with Grandmaster Fu, and the wisdom he shared during late-night conversations"
This year Stan will complete Levels 6 and Level 7, which will allow him to teach all six levels of Emei Qigong. Within the larger Emei Healing system framework, Stan has focused on sound healing.
Having studied with renowned sound-healing teacher, Ed Cleveland, Stan became a Certified Sound Healer in 2017. His lifelong history as a musician attracted him to using sound to heal.
Played Music Early On
As a child he played guitar, playing in his first band at age 12. Then switching to bass because of greater work opportunities. He also played blues harmonica. Stan played in several bands encompassing nearly every genre.
Later he got involved in a jazz, rock, and blues band. Entertaining many audiences in art galleries, wineries, and clubs. "I always had an interest in the effect that music had on a person's mood and the role that it played in society."
Learned Vibrational Sound Therapy
First he started learning about sound baths. Then he began to study and play vibrational and hand-held healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, monochords, shruti boxes, and many more. "I totally fell in love with the concept of extending my healing practice using sound therapy."
A few years ago he started recording sound meditations and Emei chanting. He dedicated himself to building a catalog of meditation-style music and chanting, using vibrational instruments only. No synthesized music... just pure traditional vibrational-style sounds.
"Hi Stan, I listened to the audio last night in bed...with the Snow Moon shining brightly and I love it! What a beautiful creation.
Thank You...Henan...Samantha B."
Developed Powerful Audio Track
Acting on suggestion of Grandmaster Fu Wei Zhong, Stan developed a powerful sound healing meditation titled, "Emei Qigong 5 Element Sound Healing". (Click below to hear an audio sample).
The complete audio is 48 minutes and includes sacred healing sounds, healing mantra, and vibrational instruments for healing: including Gongs, Tibetan Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Tibetan Tingsha, Shruti Boxes, Monochords, Bells, and Chimes. "I'm excited to be creating again in a way that helps myself and other people.
I believe what truly makes my vibrational music more effective for healing is that it is infused with the Emei frequency. I regularly chant, use mind intention, empowered objects and Emei healing techniques while playing and recording."
A Lifelong Student
Stan Pannone has wholly embraced Emei and integrated it into his daily life. His students describe him as modest, hard-working, and with a good sense of humor. In short, Stan lives what he teaches. Stan teaches weekly Zoom classes on qigong and meditation, as well as private healing sessions. Throughout the year he does level 1, 2, and 3 seminars on Emei Qigong. Level 1 is foundational knowledge and teaching of the Wuji Gong Form, Level 2 is about 5 Element Theory and Practice, and Level 3 is about Emei finding the root causes of disease and advanced Emei healing methods.
