Our Buddhist Siddhi Energy Healing Practitioners

Bhaishajya Yoga and the Parayana Buddhist Way

The word Parayana means “beyond vehicles.” It is an approach that is nonsectarian and embraces the six different pathways that Buddha taught. Distinguishing Buddha’s teachings into pathways did not occur in Buddha’s time, but came about many years later in the process of categorizing those methods and approaches.

The pathways to unbinding and liberation are:

  • Disciplines and practices (bhavana)
  • Insight (vipassana)
  • Absorption, or concentration (jhana)
  • Direct perception, as exemplified by Tibetan schools of Dzogchen and Mahamudra
  • Realization or faith (saddha)
  • Devotion (bhatti)

All aim at awakening (bodhi).





Shi Chien Li (Don’s teacher) is Chinese born and teaches from the above six methods. He teaches in the Parayana siddhi yogic tradition, which is non-monastic and an oral tradition passed down through many generations of Siddhas. The main subjects of focus are healing and mind yoga. Shi Chien Li is a “Master of Healing.” The healing practices he teaches are based on Tibetan, Indian and Chinese structures. The mind-energy practices and physical methods and techniques date back to Jivaka’s time (Buddha’s own physician and Master of energy healing).  Shi Chien Li teaches these methods as a path of service and as a way to practice higher mind skills.

We source other herbal medicines (Tibetan, Indian or Chinese) from reputable traditional practitioners.  Dawn currently works with nutrition and constitutional analysis, herbal remedies, Tibetan cranial therapy, chi revivification of body systems, and meditation/mindfulness coaching.

Don is a Master Teacher of Buddhist Spiritual Medicine and one of the Buddhist siddhi yoga and energy healing practitioners at Buddha’s Alchemy. Shi Hsin Yao Hai is Don’s given Buddhist name. A Buddhist name is given from teacher to disciple as an energetic transmission that both shapes and reflects the meaning or karmic force behind the disciple’s commitment and work. Shi Hsin Yao Hai translated means a disciple of Buddha, spiritual heart child of medicine.

Don is a Buddhist siddhi yogin, and teaches Medical Chi Kung, Nei Chi Kung and pre -communist Shao Lin based Nei Wu Kung. He apprenticed for 36 years with Master Teacher/Doctor of Buddhist Healing Shi Chien Li. Earlier in life, Don was befriended, taught and deeply influenced by Zapotec Holy Man Genaro Florres. Don is a Mind Yoga practitioner, and adept in the areas of healing yoga practices and psychology, and the skillfulness path of shaping (influencing the flow of life/karma by means of understanding the underlying movement of energy).

When Don was quite a young boy and under the guidance of his first teacher, Genaro, he learned that everything is filled with a living energy that is intelligent and responsive to an unencumbered focus. Over years of study, including those with his second teacher, he continued sustaining that focus. He discerned different qualities and types of energy that flow through people and the environment. This resulted in understandings of how life force energy works in relation to human consciousness. Don’s second teacher Shi Chien Li, relayed that some of these insights and awarenesses had not been understood and taught since the time of Jivaka.

Don has been teaching the processes of what he calls mastering mastery since 1998. He continues to practice and teach students the skills that he has learned and developed in working with life force, healing and consciousness shaping. Don practices a rare and effective form of soft bone and tissue adjustments, and advanced chi and shen directed healing for various disorders. He provides master teachings in Buddhist healing psychology and spiritual and physical healing practices.

Today we began the garden root harvest. There is still more to come, but we have a good start. Angelica, Marshmallow, and Elecampane started the season. I feel some cough medicine in the works!

Elecampane root (Inula helenium) is suited to conditions of Dampness and Phlegm due to its drying and expectorant qualities. It treats respiratory conditions such as coughs , asthma, pleurisy, bronchitis and infections. In addition, it is rejuvenating to the Lung Qi, and hence can be used as a Qi tonic. Elecampane also clears Phlegm from the digestive tract. It is a digestive aid and especially warming to the Spleen when dry fried. It can be used to treat nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, dysentery, cholecystitis, gallstones and intestinal worms. Its anti-parasitic property makes it useful in treating malaria. Elecampane can be used externally to relieve neurogenic pain such as sciatica and rheumatism.

Angelica archangelica root is a warming diaphoretic, and a cousin to Angelica sinensis, the well known Chinese herb called Dang gui. Angelica archangelica is commonly used as an expectorant to treat phlegm in the lungs, and also to release Exterior Wind-Cold and dispel Wind-Damp in colds, asthma, coughs and bronchitis. As it dispels Wind-Damp-Cold, it is also used to treat arthritis and rheumatism. Angelica archangelica moves Blood, and is effective as an emmenagogue. As a carminative and stomachic, it can treat poor digestion. This is a fantastic and versatile garden herb. Processing the roots is an aromatic experience, and will leave your hands smelling wonderful, but sticky from the angelicin (resin).

Marshmallow root (Althaea officinalis) is a well know Western cooling demulcent herb due to its generous mucilage content. Marshmallow can be employed in a variety of conditions. It soothes cough, is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, calms fevers, tonifies Yin and clears Heat toxins. Marshmallow also stops bleeding. Marshmallow can be applied to any situation where mucous membranes are dry, inflamed or irritated, including urinary stones, cough/bronchitis/laryngitis, IBS/Chron’s, gangrene, cystitis, and ulcers. It can also be used to tonify Yin in wasting diseases like diabetes, and to stop various kinds of bleeding. The root and leaves may be used, with the root containing the highest amount of mucilage. Mucilage does not tincture well, so direct application or cold infusions are the best choice for medicine.
