Mo Pai Nei Kung – John Chang
Having recently read the book The Magus of Java: Teachings of an Authentic Taoist Immortal I have become extremely interested in the cultivating of Yin Chi and Yang Chi bio energies. John Chang from the lineage of Mo Pai appears to be the most advanced person on the planet in terms of utilizing this unique form of energy.
Abilities he has demonstrated include:
- Ability to Heal people western medicine can’t
- Rudimentary Levitation
- Communicating with a Kris (a type of dagger imbued with a person’s spirit)
- Communicating with Spirits
- Astral Travelling
For an overview of John Chang’s amazing supernatural abilities check out:
Nei Kung is fundamentally different than Chi Kung, in that Chi Kung only uses yang (masculine) energy. Nei Kung utilizes both yin and yang (feminine & masculine combined) thus making it infinitely more powerful. The yin energy is also known as Kundalini in the Sanskrit tradition. It is surprising how very few traditional subtle energy systems actually utilize yin (feminine) energy let a lone make a distinction between yang and yin, just calling the two different forms ambiguously “chi”, “prana”, “ki” or “energy”. If a system doesn’t make a distinction it almost always only utilizes the masculine yang energy. A serious limitation. The ultimate goal of Nei Kung is two merge Yin and Yang, this is also known as spiritual alchemy or Neidan.
Yin and Yang have a remarkable similarity to Dielectricity and Magnetism. In fact it appears they are one and the same thing. I believe Eric Dollard’s work is the scientific basis for explaining how Yin and Yang Chi work. What John Chang can do with his body, Eric Dollard can do with technology. The theoretical basis of this knowledge appears to stem originally from India and the aspects of Pranayama, Kundalini & Tantra. The Mo Pai technique involves a series of levels each one with specific mediation & isometric muscle contraciton techniques. In total there are 72 levels in this system. Rudimentary descriptions of what happens energetically in the first four levels is given in The Magus of Java Book but no technique. It appears the techniques are kept secret and the students swear an oath to keep it that way.
John Chang appears to have been psychically aware of about 10 other people in china that are at a similar level to him. Although he appears to have not met them or seriously sought them out.
John Chang had accepted five western students. He currently does not teach anymore and a new person has taken over the Mo Pai school who appears to have no desire to teach any westerners. Thus the Mo Pai tradition is kept extremely exclusive. And maybe this is a good thing.
The 5 students are as follows:
- Jim McMillan
- Kosta Danaos
- and 5. unknown
1. Jim McMillan (American)
Of the five students Jim McMillan is supposed to have attained the highest level (level 3) of all of John Chang’s Mo Pai students including even his ethnic Asian students. He has recently published a book Seeking the Master of Mo Pai: Adventures with John Chang. Having personally read it, I don’t recommend it. The book is poorly written and contains very, very little information on Mo Pai. It reads almost entirely like a travel journal. Of the 262 pages there are maybe 3 that contain some interesting information.

Lama Dondrup Dorje – Tai Chi
This guy appears to have abilities equally as impressive as John Chang. At least the videos are impressive. I don’t know much about his system but I endeavor to find out more. I’m curious if he is capable of pyrokinesis and if he makes a formal distinction between yang chi and yin chi. Also if he is willing to teach how he accomplishes his energetic feats.

My ultimate goal is to learn Mo Pai Nei Kung or another system equally as powerful. I am a bit hung up on Mo Pai as it appears no other system comes even close in terms of its refinement and power. Such systems take enormous dedication and I would see it as a bit of a waste not to learn from the best. If anyone is aware aware of any other quality sources on Mo Pai knowledge not linked above let me know. Also if anyone thinks they know of a superior system to Mo Pai, or a rough equivalent please let me know.
