The Dragon Gates (lóngménpài龙门派) of the Complete Reality School (全真派) of Daoism incorporates the elements of Buddhism and Confucianism into a comprehensive form of Daoism.   It is an offshoot of the Northern school of the Complete Reality of Daoism. Now they are extending this to the world during this critical present time in the evolution of humankind.


Complete Reality School spiritual descent is traced to the thirteenth-century master Qiu Chang-chun, Chang-chun means “Eternal Spring”. The master of Eternal Spring was one of the sages who advised Genghis Khan to preserve the ancient civilization of China during the Mongolian invasion, over eight hundred years ago.

Genghis Khan appointed Chang-chun overseer of all spiritual traditions and religions in China, and the Dragon Gate sect thus played a critical role in the preservation of the Chinese cultures and acted as Guardians of knowledge and wisdom for China ever since.

Experience the Mythology

The legends of ancient mysticism continue to permeate our world today, and it has been decided that this knowledge should be shared. Some of the most incredible destinations are hidden places with stunning energetics that can facilitate personal healing and promote upgrades in consciousness.

The Dragon Gates were a once-quiet community that helped guide the flourishing of refined and highly developed cultures, guarding them against darker historical times. The places visited on this tour are unusually culturally rich, vivid historical destinations. The myths that lie behind the history of these places have kept their secrets locked away for centuries, but are now being unveiled.

Many of those drawn to these tours may have lived past lives in these locations, and memories may resurface while visiting the sacred spots. Learning to harness the life force found in these places has proven to be very healing for many.

Knowledge of Immortality

These specially designed tours offer an introduction to the healing powers within the universe and teach how to access immortal healing abilities within our own consciousness. Participants learn to harness the energy of the universe to transmute sickness within the body, as well as how to transmute our own physical limitations.

These teachings provide valuable knowledge for healers, allowing them to incorporate new techniques and consciousness into their healing modalities. With mental training, the feats of world-class athletes at the Olympics only scratch the surface of what is possible to achieve through Inner Alchemy Cultivations.

For centuries, the Dragon Gates have guarded the ancient knowledge of alchemy. It is now time to pass this knowledge on to those who are pure of heart, mind, and intent and who value the shared knowledge on these select tours. This ancient knowledge is stored without words in their ancient lineage, and covers everything from the healing arts to the knowledge of how to change the weather.

On these tours, participants will empower themselves with a new understanding of their own power. They will learn about the science behind the meridians in the body, specific rituals and ceremonies, encoding energetic upgrades, invoking the higher spiritual realms to work with us through the science of symbols, and the ins and outs of inner alchemy. These skills and teachings will allow participants to improve their daily lives long after the tour has ended.

Teachings from the Masters

The Dragon Gates boasts a team of esteemed local legends who have earned their reputations as Masters in both science and art. Our tours allow us to learn from these teachers as we strive towards our own personal growth and development, seeking answers to the questions that arise from studying esoteric arts.

In the Dragon Gates Tradition, the Masters are either individuals who have attained certain levels of consciousness or have a special connection to one of the soul archetypes. These Masters act as guides to help us discover our inner strength and find the answers we seek. Some of these Masters are like living dictionaries, who have gained wisdom and mastery throughout their journey in life by following a course laid out by their elders. They are the ones who share the ancient knowledge.

For the first time, the Dragon Gates Masters have approved this level of contact with the outside world.

Transcendence of the Mind

Ultimately, our state of being is what truly matters. By transcending our minds, we can transcend our reality, and this is precisely what the teachings of the Dragon Gates aim to achieve. Understanding how the universe operates provides us with invaluable insight into the workings of our own minds.

For nearly a decade, Dragon Gates Tours has been working tirelessly to share this knowledge and experience with those who seek it, with the intention of helping mystics, researchers, and healers expand their understanding of reality and facilitate breakthroughs in collective consciousness through the application of inner alchemy. This path can serve as a key to ascending our entire being to a higher level of understanding in life. Although there are many paths to achieve this, a deeper comprehension of the science and laws of the universe can be profoundly transformative.

Ultimately, the results of these teachings, including healing and energetic transmutation, are merely external manifestations of the true “gold” of the human mind.
