The Universal Healing Tao Foundation Practices
and Qigong done in Class

Universal Tao Foundations:

Mantak Chia describes his lineage as “Inner-Alchemy-Just-Practice Taoist.” It embraces any knowledge and any method from the Tao that are effective to refine the states of inner experience and consciousness that are the birthright of all humans and that are accessible by all, without unnecessary rituals. After having inherited the complete Taoist internal spiritual cultivation system from his master, Yi Eng, Chia followed the master’s instruction to teach the “Nine Formulas” to others.

We will begin learning the practices of “Inner Smile” “6 Healing Sounds” and “Microcosmic Orbit” as well as “Simple Qigong” and “Qi (Chi) Self-Massage”  It takes longer than six weeks to learn all of these.  But we will start and begin to build our familiarity and skill.

More information on “the Nine Formulas” can be found here:

Qigong Practices:

Shamanic Shaking – Heart Drumming:  A traditional Qigong practice from Mt. Emei using movement, seed syllable mantra and intention to clear old stale emotions and energy, to soften all the tissues and to connect deeply with Earth and Heaven.

— EBQ Qigong: from Center for Taiji & Qigong Studies (Yang Yang) is a collection of 5 standing Qigong that gather Qi into your body, use Silk Reeling to work your tendons, open and lubricate the joints {strengthening the  muscle, bone, tendon structures of the body}.

— 6 Healing Sounds: Seated or Standing, this internal practice using breath, imagery and uttered sound is transformative. With the Sounds you Digest and elevate the emotional energies and support your organ health.

Kuan Yin Qigong:  We will close with this lovely, fluid contemporary Qigong ending our class with nature imagery of the night.

Taiji Practice:  

Tenshin Ranman Taichi is a beautiful contemporary form devised by Masahiro Ouchi (founder of TaoZen) and Li Jun Feng (founder of Shenzen Gong).  It is predominately in the Yang Style, but also has fast, explosive movements from Chen Style.  Like Tai Chi Chi Kung, it takes about 7 minutes when you know it and only requires about 2 square meters of space. ~An excellent form for our contemporary life.

Memory too short for the 108, 36 or even the 24 Yang form?  This form “Yang 13” or “Tai Chi Chi Kung” from Mantak Chia is only 13 unique movements, repeated to create a longer form (about 78).  It is a beautiful sequence that moves you in a circle, around the Bagua, and is the only body-symmetric Taiji form around.

We will lay foundation with the large movements of the Chen form.  As you progress, we will apply those fundamentals to the Yang 13… This may take a few weeks or a few months.  Class will progress at a reasonable pace for the students attending. Our goal is to know both forms and to add depth to both through learning how they contrast and intersect.
