Taoist Internal Alchemy

For thousands of years to present time, QiGong has transformed ordinary lifes into extraordinary lifes of health, happiness, abundant energy and longeveity.
Many of us today have been taught countless methods to take care of our external physical bodies while the incredible world within us still remains a mystery and inaccessible.

The ancient Taoists of China spent lifetimes exploring and experiencing the inner geography and multi dimensions of mind, energy and spirit.
They left directions for us to follow their paths with maps, formulas, practices and exercises guiding us through this unknown realm. Over the centuries their work became the foundation for Traditional Chinese medicine, martial arts and spiritual development. The roots of all these time tested systems of self mastery, self transformation and self healing originate in Taoist Internal Alchemy.

For many years, Internal Alchemy training was acquired in the East only through finding a knowledgeable teacher and in the West it was virtually nonexistent. Only recently has the phenomena of energy been recognized as having an existence for us outside of an available resource produced from burning calories.

This once hidden and secretive practice has become available to everyone as the doorways to other cultures and countries of the East have swung open to us during the last generations.
Master Mantak Chia is one of the first teachers to present the complete teachings to students in his worldwide travels over 30 years.
What you used to have to travel to the ends of the earth for is now available virtually at your fingertips.

(next writing)

Internal Alchemy is the transformation of the self through inner work .
Alchemy was described in early times as a process of turning base metal into gold. These aspirations of the early chemists are  a poetic description of what can a occur to us as we evolve our potential and support the natural wisdom and innate vitality that exists in our bodies.

By the time most of us survive birth and get through the educational system and the complex dynamics of our social system we have accumulated extra baggage in the form of tensions, emotional reactions, beliefs and ideas of who we are or what we should be doing, along with a myriad of distractions and disillusionment , bad food, injuries and pollution.
The result of all these experiences is who we call the “self.” This self is more an acculturated condition rather than who you really are or can be.

The formulas and teachings in Taoist Internal Alchemy provide a way to cut through all the baggage and blockages we carry inside us and give birth again to a self that is genuinely and essentially you.

First you learn how to direct  the consciousness of your mind into your body so that you can actually sense and feel what is going on in a deeper way.
We have the ability to feel so much more than we usually do.
Have you ever felt your organs or the many energy pathways that are as real within you as your blood vessels and nerves? Have you ever felt your energy or sensed centers in your body where energy gathers? Have you ever been able to increase your energy or direct it to different parts of your body or store it for future use?

Next , you travel into the organs and feel into them with your mind.
You can actually direct loving energy into every organ and replace the stuck reactions like anger, irritation, fear, grief, sadness, impatience, hate and jealousy with feelings that feel good and not make you feel sick.

You are able to localize concentrated energy centers and actual circuitry in your body which is like an internal anatomy. Most of us  were never taught about our energy systems in our schools however in Asian cultures this is commonly known.
This circuitry is a pathway where your mind can bring energy to and then move it around, and store it in other parts of the body. Depending on where energy is directed internally, you can stimulate your capacity to develop and for all the systems in your body to respond to full capacity for performance. This full capacity is Vitality. Your energy is your vital life force.

This whole practice of working from the inside out is what the Taoist call self mastery.
Taoist Internal Alchemy awakens you to a whole fascinating reality inside yourself that can change your health, your happiness, your sense of self and your whole way of living.

Look into our GUIDE for a complete description of the entire system ‘
