Sheng Zhen teachers trained by Master Li:

Pamela Grant, Certified Sheng Zhen Teacher

I love how the practice slows everything down and how the stillness spontaneously balances everything out.  Every opportunity to practice Sheng Zhen is special, even magical.  Pamela is a certified Sheng Zhen Gong teacher in Santa Barbara.  

She has been practicing yoga and meditation since 1973, and found Sheng Zhen to beautifully embody the essence of her years of practice and study.  Pamela teaches regular classes in Santa Barbara.


Bryce Lupoli began earnestly studying texts of wisdom at the age of 16, when he was struck by existential depression. For the following eight years he unsuccessfully tried to use philosophy to think his way out of depression. Then, in the summer of 2017, his way of life radically changed when he spent five weeks in an ashram. There he discovered that a miracle occurs when the mind and heart are quiet and open: love and meaning come pouring in.

In the summer of 2018, Bryce began looking for a movement practice that could help integrate the stillness of his meditation practice into his everyday life of dynamic choices and actions. He then found Sheng Zhen, fell in love with it at first sight, immediately attended a 36-day Sheng Zhen retreat, and started teaching.

Sheng Zhen is a practice through which I can align and elevate my body, mind, and soul. For years I have had a sense of what virtuous action I should take. Yet I have fallen short, for want of physical vitality and will. With Sheng Zhen, I now have the tools to do what I am called to do, and I know I can do it. And I know I can do it with the spirit of unconditional love.

Bryce is now diving into Sheng Zhen as deeply as he can and spreading it as widely as he can.
