Mann Partners’ Panda Teachings™ embrace the perspective
embodied in their namesake bear of black and white, not one or the
other, but both in the same whole. It is a perspective of Integration
of Opposites™, which in a world of seeming polarities brings
together the dualities of feminine and masculine, yin and yang,
spirituality and science, transpersonal shamanic experience and
western rational mind. It is a perspective about integrating our
light and shadow and boldly embracing wholeness.
The teachings are an expression of the spirit of a Giant Panda bear,
who beautifully integrates black and white, and is an ancient symbol
of wisdom and peace. Mysterious and living in the cloudy mountains,
Panda Bears were considered semi-divine in ancient China, and credited
with mystical powers.
Panda Bear is a symbol of saying yes to life. The Panda Teachings
free us of our preconceptions about who we are and open us to who
we are becoming.

We use a variety of approaches that include meditation, high-intensity
sound, sacred art, sand paintings, and fire ceremonies. We discuss
the compatibility of the seemingly incompatible, spirituality and
science. We explore dreams, experience our inner guidance on a vision
journey, and study ancient shaman techniques and their more modern
equivalents that were concentrated into an essence to make them
easier accessible to a western mind.
Workshops vary in length based on their focus, from a one day event
to a week-long retreat. Please contact us for more event-specific information and dates.
