Inside Chi Flows Naturally:
Nature feels sexy in Spring….as green wood element absorbs solar fire, it expands and dances. Are you dancing with it?
Dear Lovers of that Sexy Spring Feeling,
We passed the May 5th mid-point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice, which Taoists consider the true Beginning of Summer. It’s one of the eight powerful nodal points in the “living bagua” of Nature’s time cycle, the Solstices and Equinoxes and their four midpoints.
In other cultures, it is celebrated with May day dances around a maypole (Celtic Beltaine), and if you are lucky, orgiastic rites to let some of that sexual steam off. The new moon on May 3 was the most powerful conjunction with this solar node. Dive into your dark magnetic force, and liberate its power to flow into your outer life!!!
That’s all fun. But there is always another Way: capture the essence of the Chi (Qi) at the May nodal point, and put it to work internally to expand your spiritual process. So celebrate your sexual liberation after a long cold winter, then settle down and meditate. With your lover, of course. That’s what I’m doing, anyway….and hoping this is the sprouting seed that leads to Conscious Conception. :).
In April we had a powerful build up with two Fusion workshops. Fusion 1 harmonized and concentrated the power of the vital organ spirits, and Fusion 2/3 cultivated the deep channels of pre-natal energy. It ramped up our chi flow in the Macro-cosmic Orbit (8 Extra-ordinary Vessels linked together), that connects our outer and inner self.
The Fusion practices let us take full advantage of Nature’s pulsating cycles. We learned to absorb Spring’s expansive chi, and played with it internally. That’s what I love about Taoist alchemy: you merge deep into Nature’s hiidden process. It’s an exhilarating ride that never ends.
Fusion is just preparation for the next steps. Healing Love (sexual alchemy with a partner) is good for your health and your love life. Read more about it at http://www.healingtaousa.com/sexualqigong.html, where you can get inexpensive training DVDs and jade eggs for female practice.
Lesser Enlightenment of Kan & Li (Inner Sexual Alchemy) is next on this journey. Here the male and female sides of our soul are encouraged to have “sexual inner-course”. An internal soul orgy that does amazingly good things for you and the planet on every level of Being. Consider the extensive alchemy training available at my once-a-year course http://www.HealingTaoRetreats.com or get the Kan & Li homestudy course. There is nothing else like it available on ordinary qigong or Taoist sites, that I’m aware of: How to get spiritually pregnant and grow your Immortal Embryo. Is that Divinely Cool, or what????
There are lots of fantastic courses available this summer, a total of 30 to be exact!
Mantak Chia will be in Ashevillle, NC June 13-15 to kick things off. A convenient downtown location has been selected: Jubilee! at 46 Wall St. Get a $50. discount on his five mini-seminars by registering online or calling Jan in my office at 888 999 0555 (info@HealingTaoUSA.com) BEFORE MAY 15. See the complete schedule below.
The summer retreats are in Mars Hill, only a half hour from Asheville, so it’s now convenient for commuters who need only pay the ridiculously low tuition ($495/week) plus a small facility fee, with optional meal packages if you want it. Or if you are low budget, camp in the nearby beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and commute from your campsite. Plus we have scholarships and extended payment. I haven’t raised the prices in FIVE YEARS, which means my 501c3 non profit is subsidizing your spiritual vacation. Please don’t let money stop you from getting the Chi Training you truly need!!!!
Week 1 has my Medical and Spiritual Qigong Fundamentals 1-4, possibly the most powerful course I teach all summer. Why? Because this is the course in which people make their biggest shift. It’s like a car going from O to 60 mph. The retreats concentrates your power to accelerate your evolution. I just love teaching this course and watching the amazing changes peoples go through when they realize how much infinite energy is hidden inside them.
Another fantastic innovator in Week 1 (June 18-23) is Kazzrie Jaxen, a renowned musician & qigong artist. She is hoping to give a Qigong Piano concert during her week. If you are lucky, she will put you under a baby grand piano to be healed by her playing.
Her Earth Beauty Qigong course is defined by her custom-created qigong form’s Opening Invocation:
“For the beauty of the Earth
I give birth.
For the beauty we can be
The Earth gives birth to me”.
How do we awaken our innate ability to dream the world into being? How does the cellular memory of our body’s creation in the womb affect the way we live as creative beings on this planet?
The third course in Week 1 is Chi Nei Tsang 1, Deep Organ Massage. It will be taught by Marie Favorito, as Karin Sorvik has a family situation she must attend to. CNT is one of the most powerful healing modalities out there. For self-healing or professional therapists needing certification. It is one of the fastest ways to open up your innate Belly Power and unleash the hidden potential in your lower dantian (Elixir Field).
The rest of the retreats are listed below. Now is the time to put your $150. deposit to reserve a space for the training in optimal chi health and cosmic summer fun you deserve!
Coming soon: books reviews on a great new Chinese Medical Qigong reference work out of China, and a fabulous autobiography of a Qigong Master. Stay tuned!
Now, on to Dr. Love, one of the cooler public music personalities to jump onto the Qigong bandwagon……
Loving this Spring full of Love like no other,

Rap music penetrates the Qigong world….
I can tell that Qigong is finally going mainstream, by its penetration into Rap culture.
Michael Clark, one of my qigong brothers orginally from Asheville, deserves credit for the first qigong rap, as far as I recall (and I am one of the cultural historians of qigong in America). Michael was the assistant trip leader on one of my China Dream Trips. He met his true love Marguerita on the trip, and moved to Mexico to live with her. He did his Qigong rap for the Chinese, who were mesmerized, if somewhat bewildered.
http://wn.com/Michael_Clark%27s_Qigong_and_Tai_Chi_Rap is Michael’s 3:27 minute rap at the National Qigong Association annual conference in 2008 (I make a brief cameo appearance as master of ceremony). It’s a good reminder that you may be interested in joining the NQA and attending their 2011 conference in August in Pennsylvania (see www.NQA.org for details).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPk_FEm5NxA is Michael’s 2 minute version and well worth your time if you want to get the very funny esoteric Taoist wordplay down.
Dr. Love is even more mainstream. His Rap on “Why I Do Qigong” is 5 minutes of FUN….
