»The Golden Flower Meditation« and all classical meditation techniques go far beyond what is taught in the West as meditation. Science has not yet explored and understood this spiritual practice system far enough. Meditation is a technique that frees the mind from the dominance of thought. With mental silence, the conscious individual can become a «Partner of Creation» and heal and liberate himself instead of remaining «prisoner of creation». The practice of meditation leads us directly to the »Paradigm of Immortality« because meditation can only be understood with a holistic «Philosophy of Immortality». Immortality is an important aspect and part of the philosophy and practice of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda mentioned in all the scriptures and which I have been researching in all disciplines for more than 50 years. Meditation helps us to step out of the entanglement of our thoughts and come into contact with our independent original mind which frees us from all manipulations because it exists independently of our body.
The «Golden Flower Meditation» is a gentle and safe method, to set free the «Kundalini Shakti», the «Cosmic Serpent»,
the «Subtle Consciousness Power», and to unfold our full human potential, the «Divine Consciousness».
The two classic meditation manuals „Golden Flower“ and „Yoga Sutras of Patanjali“ build the consistent foundation and tradition of the meditation method taught by Peter Todesco »Golden Flower Meditation«. Lesser-known »fundamental texts« of «Hatha Yoga» and «Kundalini Yoga» as well as the «Taoist Classics» and the scientific literature published about them serve as indispensable supplements and explanations of the applications of this meditation.
»In India, the „Naga“ (Snake Kings) are regarded as Dragons, they embody the „Cosmic Serpent“ in the form of Cobras,
the „Kundalini Shakti“, the Creative Consciousness, our DNA, the Cosmic Intelligence as the Matrix of Nature.«
– Gerhardt Staufenbiel „Heilige Drachen“ (Holy Dragons)/ – Jeremy Narby „The Cosmic Serpent“

»The Secret of the Golden Flower“ 太乙金華宗旨 (Tai Yi Jin Hua Zhong Zhi) was passed on by the mystics in ancient China as „The Book of Life“ a classic meditation manual. It is in this form a unique textbook and reference work on meditation and its techniques. There is still a master in China today, Wang Liping, who passes on the tradition of the „School of Perfect Reality“ as the 18th lineage holder of the Dragon Gate School. You can find more information on his website http://www.dragongateacademy.com or in his book »Opening the Dragon Gate«.
»The Dragon (Snake) is divine because it is a part of the nature of all that exists,
so every human being has dragon (snake) nature, he just has to live it.«
»The Dragon Gate School has the explicit goal that the practitioners when they have passed
the Dragon Gate, transform themselves into dragons and thus realize their Buddha nature.«
»The dragons of the East have no wings, they fly with the power of their spirit.«

Peter Todesco has rearranged the authentic translation from the Chinese original of the Golden Flower of Thomas Cleary from 1991 into a practical Meditation Instruction which you can print out from the homepage of this website as «pdf» in different languages. The complete English Transcription of Thomas Cleary’s „The Secret of the Golden Flower“ as well as transcripts in the languages (GE/IT/FR/SP) can be requested from »Peter Todesco« for private purposes against complete address as they are listed on the »News« page.
On the Internet, you will find a very good, illustrated, freely accessible new English translation of Richard Wilhelm and C.G. Jung’s first translation from 1929 „Das Geheimnis der Goldenen Blüte„ at http://www.thesecretofthegoldenflower.com. A third easy-to-understand translation „Wang Chongyang – The Secret of the Golden Flower: A Manual for Taoist Inner Alchemy“ is available from Andras Nagy, Ancient Publications at Amazon. Practical explanations and further information on the application of these techniques are presented on the homepage www.goldenflowermeditation.com from the author JJ Semple.
The innner energy work of the «Golden Flower» method is explained in «Cultivation of Life Energy», the Chinese Classic which is considered to be the basic «Textbook of Longevity and Immortality». These energetic techniques you can learn with Peter Todesco in personal Introductory Courses and workshops and further deepen, in addition you will receive all important guidance texts for your meditation practice.
»The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali« योगसूत्रयोगसूत्रम् (patañjali-yoga-sūtram) are the oldest basic work of meditation, written by the Indian Kriya Yogi Patanjali. In this „Yoga Guidelines“, the immortal Patanjali has summarized all the knowledge about meditation and yoga very briefly in concentrated form. This knowledge belongs to the tradition of the «Golden Flower Meditation».
The purpose of this exercise is to free the mind from its arbitrary and unnecessary limitations
imposed on him by the habitual fixation on its own content.
Since the 1990s there has been published an abundance of other translations from the writings of the Indian palm leaf libraries. Many of the very precious Yoga texts from other Siddhas (from the time of Patanjali and before him) have since then been translated from the Tamil language into English and partly even published on the Internet. Also increasingly better translations of the literature of «Hatha Yoga» and «Kundalini Yoga» become published. This helps enormously to better understand and classify the old texts. Peter Todesco continuously integrates this knowledge into the instruction and practice of his school of meditation.
»Meditation of the Golden Flower« as taught in the Study Program »Consciousness and Meditation« combines the basics of classical meditation methods with the knowledge of old and new masters to an ideal technique of consciousness for the present time. From the expert of meditation, you will learn the prerequisites of a correct and complete meditation technique and will be able to practice this direct and consciousness expanding method for the first time in the West.

The »Philosophy of Immortality« which underlies this meditation instruction is the guidance of the
yogic sciences for a happy and perfect life. It is the essence of my inner calling. For as long as I can
remember, I was always looking for answers to the fundamental questions of life:
