Heaven Man Earth
Heaven Man Earth Internal Arts International is dedicated to the propagation of authentic Yang-style taijiquan. With training methods to achieve one’s goals in the health, martial and spiritual aspects of taijiquan.
The basic body skills, qi gong, forms, weapon training, pushing hands and fighting skills are drawn from two Yang-style lineages making what we consider to be one of the most complete and authentic Yang-style transmissions available today.
As the system is taught, students work first through the Huang Sheng Shyan system as a direct doorway into the internal. The technology heavily focuses on developing song (release) and ting (sensitivity) and the total abandonment of external force or li.
The union of these training methods into one progressive system, under the skilled guidance of Sifu Adam Mizner, produces an extremely deep and complete system of authentic Yang-style taijiquan. In our experience this alive system produces results unmatched anywhere else, leading the student from beginner to entering the true door of the internal and right through to the higher mysteries of taijiquan.
Classes are taught by senior instructor Duran Mack, who is one of Sifu Mizners inner-door students.
Adam has also dedicated many years to the in depth study of Daoism, western Hermetics and the Buddha Dhamma, and teaches methods from these traditions. He is a senior lay disciple of Ajahn Jumnien in the Thai Forest tradition of Theravada Buddhism. This deep spiritual background has a large influence on his approach to Tai Chi and internal development teaching.
Adam Mizner started his martial arts practice and spiritual journey in his teens. Over the years he has traveled extensively to acquire a wealth of skills and genuine traditional teachings, spending 10 years going in and out of monasteries and living in caves and forests to deepen his practice.
Adam Mizner has had 7 primary teachers of Yang Style Tai Chi from the Huang Sheng Shyan and Yang Shou Hou lineages, and is adept in various forms of meditation, which also plays a major role in his approach to the practice and the teaching of Tai Chi Chuan and Nei Gong. Adam Mizner is a 7th generation Yang style Tai Chi Chuan teacher, and transmits the outer system and inner technologies of these systems in a pure and direct way.
In 2004, after extensive personal practice and many years of teaching Tai Chi, Nei Gong and Meditation, Adam Mizner founded Heaven Man Earth Internal Arts International.
Heaven Man Earth Internal Arts International is dedicated to the propagation of authentic traditional meditation, nei gong and Yang Style Tai Chi. With trainings to achieve one’s goals in the health, martial and spiritual aspects of the internal arts.
Instructor Duran Mack has had a unique life. At age 7, his father, Andy Mack met his teacher Adam Mizner. Not long after this meeting, Andy and Adam, and subsequently Duran, moved in together, sharing a house on the Gold Coast, Australia. Duran lived with his dad and Sifu Adam for about 2 and a half years.
When he was 12, he moved to Melbourne to join his father. His father had set up a full-time, live-in HME school. They were joined by Sifu Curtis Brough, Senior Instructor Paul McIntyre, and 2 other HME students.
Duran would wake up to training, he would come home from school to wrestle with his ‘uncles’, and then partake in class in the evening, and go to sleep to the sound of more training.
The school was run in a traditional Chinese kungfu fashion, so Duran had his fair share of chores and obligations to fulfil. When Duran was 14, he and his father moved to Thailand. For 6 months they travelled throughout the country, staying and meditating in temples and remote locales with Thai masters. Duran continued his education at an international school, while his dad continued to train and live like a hermit, for the next 4 years.
Duran now teaches full-time in London and runs a Bone Setting and Dissolve Therapy clinic in the luxury Hotel Cafe Royal - Akasha Spa in Piccadilly Circus, London.
Duran is an inner door student and Disciple of Adam Mizner.
