Awaken Your 8 Psychic Channels:
FUSION of FIVE ELEMENTS 2 & 3.
Open the Macro-Cosmic Orbit & Eight Extraordinary Vessels
Cost: still only $144, (based on sacred Number.
Secrets of growing a powerful Energy Body
Psychic alchemy: open 8 core channels
• Supercharge spine in spirals of golden light
• Open thrusting, belt, arm & leg channels
• Heal chronic illness & deep pre-natal trauma
• 8 Extraordinary Vessels Qigong (on DVD)
• Pangu Mystical Qigong (on DVD)
Read SAMPLE TRANSCRIPT from Fusion 2/3 course lecture:
Open the Macro-Cosmic Orbit by linking chi flow in the Eight Extraordinary (“psychic”) channels. These channels link your pre-natal and post-natal energy bodies, i.e. the deep structure of how you birth yourself each flowing moment. Source needs a pathway to flow into the physical body, and this is the pathway.
Learn to purify your aura & regulate your Energy Body with belt & thrusting channels. Give to and Receive chi from the environment with Positive & Negative Arm & Leg channels.
The 8 Extra Vessels connect the inner and outer chi field, and allow you to “dance” between your inner and outer life. The Wudang Mountain version of the macro-cosmic orbit will also be taught as the most powerful internal method I’ve found for integrating the 8 Extraordinary Vessels into a continuous flowing circuit.
The macro-orbit is the foundation for opening chi flow to 8 Original Forces of Universe (I Ching trigram-tones). Powerful “8 Extraordinary Vessels” qigong form makes this practice simple to remember. It heals deep psychic imbalances not reached by acupuncture. Many mysterious and chronic illnesses can be healed at this 8 Extra Vessels level, much faster than using ordinary 12 meridian acupuncture or herbs.
Another new practice taught is my recently developed “9 Spirals of the Energy Body” in the four directions to integrate the Five Vital Organ Spirits (Shen) with the Five Directional Dragons. This practice connects the internal flow of your macro-cosmic orbit out to the edge of the universe – and back! A wonderfully empowering and healing journey.
This course lays a strong foundation for Healing Love and Water & Fire (Kan & Li) Alchemy.
The 9 Major Benefits of Fusion of the Five Elements 2 & 3:
Build a more powerful Energy Body by making conscious the deep energetic structure of your body-mind. You become far more powerful energetically in all spheres of your life. Everyone needs more energy; few understand where to find it and how to keep it balanced. Fusion 2/3 offers a template for a dynamic, flexible, grounded, and continuously flowing Energy Body.
Activate the relationship between your 5 body-spirits and the 8 extraordinary vessels. Fusion 1 develops the pearl as the integration and purification of ego consciousness. Fusion 2/3 moves the pearl through the 8 channels. These 8 channels are the deep pathways the 5 inner “body spirits” of our heart-mind (“xin”) use to energetically manage our biology, our psychology, and our spirituality. Cosmologically, this is equivalent to hard wiring 5-phase and 8-trigram/8-cosmic force theory into one.
Open chi flow internally in the Macro-cosmic Orbit. The Micro-cosmic orbit taught in Qigong Fundamentals 2 balances internal yin-yang chi flow. The Macro orbit adds in the arm and leg channels, which balances the chi flow between the environment and our body. It functionally integrates the chi flow between our inner self and our outer self/world. The macro orbit creates a wonderful feeling of deeper harmony with all that is around us. This Fusion 3 practice is made simple and easy-to-embody by use of the unique 8 Extraordinary Vessels Qigong form, which I custom-developed from years of practice.
Gain a powerful tool for self-healing, especially chronic illness and “mystery illnesses” that don’t respond to other treatments. Since the healing with the 8 Extraordinary Vessels occurs at a deeper level, it dissolves chronic diseases that are hard to cure, and stubborn mental-emotional patterns that do not respond to standard medical or psychological techniques.
5.Learn to tap into the most effective secrets of Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM). TCM (“Traditional Chinese Medicine”, invented about 50 years ago) does not use the 8 extraordinary vessels. It’s because the 8 Extraordinary Vessels are deep meridians, mostly below the skin level, thus not easily accessible to acupuncture. These 8 deep ‘reservoirs and canals” feed the 12 superficial (vital organ) meridians. If the 8 deep channels are balanced, all 12 of the regular channels will automatically self-balance.
Private studies show that 8 Extra treatments work faster and have a higher success rate of healing than regular 12-meridian acupuncture. 8 extra acupuncture treatments are slowly becoming known in the west, using ion-pumping cords and master-coupling points where the channels begin and start. But these channels are much more powerful when opened internally and in conjunction with pearl of inner will refined in Fusion 1.
6.Grow deep wisdom with “psychic alchemy”. Fusion teaches you to become a “Living I Ching” (Book of Unchanging Changes, 3000 year old classic that is foundation of Taoism). Learn the connection between the 8 deep core channels in your body and the 8 trigrams of the I Ching as symbolic system for mediating the 8 cosmic forces that hold form in place and dictate all patterns of change.
This pattern of “8” is not just some Chinese myth – it is found in biological cell division, in DNA structure, and in sacred geometry of the 8 points of the cube/earth element. The 8 trigrams of the I Ching are used for divination. When you activate 8 deep channels awareness in the body, you become a highly intuitive or psychic person. You begin to spontaneously receive more information from the larger chi field of the environment.
Supercharge the spinal cord, its physical nerve plexus and its subtle energy wiring with the Fusion 2 method of wrapping the spine with golden light (chi) of your inner pearl. This intense practice is like changing your body’s internal communication system from slow dialup to high speed internet.
8.Learn numerous practical ways to interface your physical body and your Energy Body. The two most important are using the belt channels for grounding and psychic protection, and activating the left, right, and center thrusting channels to clear internal blockages and extend your awareness deep into earth or high into heaven. The pearl can be extended like an antenna above the head or below the ground to receive cosmic chi frequencies without static. When core channels flow in continuous yin-yang circuits, they form an energetic torus (donut shaped aura) that is self-recharging.
The purified chi of your pearl can clean your aura and spine if used to “slice” through energy blockages. Pearl is also used to rejuvenate your senses (especially helpful for eyes of computer users) with internal figure-8 spiraling techniques.
Open pathways of communication between your Original Spirit, pre-natal self and your post-natal (physical) self. The pearl and the 8 Extra Vessels are like half-way meditators between your physical body and your formless inner self. Thus Fusion internal technology can be used to heal trauma that occurred in your mother’s womb. It facilitates downloading whatever our body-mind needs from the infinite, formless sea of chi within. Every human being was born from this dark ocean of potential energy. But more important is to realize we all carry that ocean of chi inside of us, and learn how to use it.
Pre-req: Fusion 1, live or by homestudy. Learning the energy channel work of Fusion 2/3 without doing the emotional body/inner pearl work of Fusion 1 is also possible, but not optimal. Email me first.

I will be teaching a seminar on Qigong and Sexual Alchemy within this great event.
Qi—the vital energy of life—is our greatest natural resource. Learning to cultivate, store, and express this vital energy can lead to improved health, creative awakening, and empowerment in every aspect of your life.
For the first time at Omega, we bring together NINE of the world’s masters of qigong, tai chi, and qi cultivation—from masters in qi healing and martial arts to experts in creativity and sacred sexuality.
Whether you are just starting to explore qigong or tai chi, or have been practicing for years, this exciting gathering of masters offers a profound experience in qi cultivation and healing.
Through breathing, visualization, and gentle movement practices that are simple, easy, and enjoyable, along with lectures and group discussions, we:
- Explore the origin and evolution of qigong, tai chi, and other qi cultivation practices
- Learn about the science of the brain, creativity, and qi (also known as prana or ki)
- Practice qi cultivation to benefit our body, mind, and spirit
- Play with qi to enliven and revitalize sexuality
- Discover how to channel qi for consciousness and creativity
We also learn seven key exercises we can practice at home for improved health, greater creativity, more vitality, and enrichment of life overall.
These qi practices require no equipment and can be done by anyone in any physical condition.

Michael Winn youtube interview on Lucid Dreaming Qigong & Taoist Self-Cultivation (40 min.): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-dHwroC9GU&feature=youtu.be
The youtube interview is long, but worth your time. It goes deep into my personal history as a lucid dreamer since I was a teenager. My night life got so active, I eventually ran a “Night School” in which I taught my day time friends the art of Lucid Flying in the dream world. I also explore the relationship between Taoist qigong and internal alchemy meditation, which has greatly raised my skill level and blurred the line between my day and night realities.
My integration of qigong and Taoist internal alchemy has allowed me to go in my daytime meditations to the same realms that are possible in the dream plane. The point of Tao dream practice is to take some shortcuts, as there is less resistance in the astral plane. But dream practice doesn’t necessarily give day time skill, so you need inner alchemy skill (neidan gong) to achieve complete mastery of one’s destiny.
My final conclusion: there is only One Self, dreaming both the day and night realities! But functioning from that Self (vs. the personality) requires discipline and training. My youtube interview is followed by spectacular images of Flower Mountain (Huashan ) in China, made famous by Chen Tuan, the Taoist Dream Immortal. Photos taken on China Dream Trips. We’ll be visiting Huashan’s famous “dream caves” in May 2014 – see below.
