Inside Chi Flows Naturally:
A vision of a human being as energy flowing around central centers in the human body. This is exactly what qigong and Taoist inner alchemy meditation, sexual energy cultivation, and the fighting and healing arts of China are based upon. Come light up your Energy Body with a summer retreat! — See www.AlexGrey.com for more images of the human aura.
Dear Lovers of High Chi Flow and Summer Fun,
Healing Tao Summer Retreats has moved to Mars! That is Mars Hill, N.C., about a half hour north of Asheville in a small town nestled in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. Asheville is a pretty cosmic place, so it’s probably no accident that the highway exit to Mars Hill is just after the exit to Jupiter….
If you are interested in a “far out” place and a fabulous group of fun, independent, high-energy folks, Mars Hill is the place to gather at this summer. We have, as usual, a fabulous list of low-cost retreats with plenty of new exciting listings as well as our famous core curriculum. That includes qigong, tai chi, iron shirt, bagua, and xing yi internal arts, Chi Nei Tsang deep organ massage and a variety of powerful healing programs; Taoist sexual energy cultivation, Taoist Yoga (Tao Yin) and One Cloud’s higher Water & Fire formulas for inner alchemy.
The accommodations at our new location look to be even more comfortable than our previous site at Heavenly Mountain. Each room is equipped with ethernet internet and air conditioning that is room-controlled, although the cool temperatures in the Blue Ridge Mountains are usually just perfect.
Our new summer residence at Mars Hill, N.C.
So what’s new on our list for this summer?
We have Mantak Chia kicking off things with 3 days of seminars in Asheville N.C. on June 13, 14, and 15. He is always a powerhouse of transmission, and not to be missed. Then the full week long retreats begin on Sat. June 18 up in Mars Hill.
Mantak Chia comes to Asheville, N.C.
In addition to my Medical and Spiritiual Qigong Fundamentals course, we have in Week 1 a new rising star, Kazzrie Jaxen, who takes qigong, music, and healing to new heights with her Earth Beauty Qigong. She may be presenting a piano concert during that week. Kazzrie’s speciality is putting people under her baby grand piano and then channelling in the exact musical healing they need.
Kazzrie Jaxen in a burst of primordial creativity.
In week 3 Zhongxian Wu is introducing a new course, Shamanic 8 Trigram taiji Qigong and Yijing Prediction. His work always digs deep into the roots of ancient Chnese culture. You can warm up for this week with Calligraphy as Qigong in week 2.
Moving brush, moving Qi: Zhongxian Wu’s Calligraphy as Qigong is amazing way to cultivate yourself.
Week 3 also premieres Minke de Vos new Medical Qigong Intensive, designed for those who was to do energy healing professionally or to learn more about healing yourself personally. Minke has 25 years experience and has gone through major healing crises herself, including a heart transplant. She has amazingly high and joyful energy. She following that up with Tao Basics and Sexual Energy Yoga.
Week 4 has Judith Poole offering her unique integration of enregy psychology and energy healing from a broad spectrum of cutting-edge methodologies. This year she has a second week followup for those who want to go even deeper in their healing process. She takes on the the toughest cases and has great success.
Tina Zhang is also offering a powerful medical qigong form in week 4, called Three Treasures Medical Qigong. She hunts down great masters in China every year and sharpens her skills. Her Northern Wu Taijiquan retreat is also an opportunity to study with a nationally high-ranked competition champion teacher.
Tina Zhang gathers the heavenly chi to heal our earthly body.
Frank Allen has his usual triple whammy series of bagua and I Ching, Cheng style bagua, and this year Xing Yi (Five Elements Fist), which is one of the most powerful fighting forms to come out of China. Frank has definitely earned grandmaster status with his 37 years experience, and he is still going to China to refresh his skills every year. Frank is one of the sweetest guys I know, who is as interested in health and meditation as he is in fighting. He is someone I definitely would not want to miss if I wanted to master the internal martial arts.
In week 5 we have a totally new and exciting offering by long time Taoist adept Lisa Sarasohn. Her retreat is for women only, and has a hot title, Sex and the Sacred Girl: Opening the Mysterious Gate of the Female. Lisa is deep, fun, sensitive, and talented in helpign women to navigate the treacherous shoals of sexuality while simultaneously taking them to new spiritual highs.
You can register for any retreat via the links in this email, for a little as $150. per week.
I look forward to sharing our 15th year of summer retreats with you!
love, chi, blessings,

Fusion of 5 Elements in Asheville April 2-3
Fusion of five pearls, by Mike Teeters, www.Arrowofmoonlight.com
April 2 – 3, 2011 (Sat-Sun): Asheville, N.C.
FUSION OF FIVE ELEMENTS 1
Description of One Cloud’s Alchemy Formulas: www.healingdao.com/tao_alchemy_formulas.html
Practical Emotional Inner Alchemy methods for managing the feeling layer of the Energy Body. This is part of One Cloud’s foundational Inner Alchemy Formula. It integrates 5 phase chi cycles in your emotions with your biological and spiritual life. Learn to control your inner psychic weather, nurture your inner powers and natural virtues, and especially how to “eat” or dissolve negative emotion and egoic reactivity. Find out where your feelings originate and their true purpose.
Learn to reverse the loss of chi flowing out thru your senses, how to alchemically gather an Inner Pearl, the essence of your original self. Very powerful tools for working on yourself, and centering the energy body. Course is mostly meditation, plus “Nourish the Five Shen” Qigong for emotional body. Pre-req: Fundamentals 1 & 2, live or audio-video. Good to have Fundamentals 3 & 4 if possible, the rooting is key to managing emotions.
You must know the orbit and six healing sounds before attending this workshop.
Location: Lighten Up Yoga in downtown Asheville. $144. weekend, $90. reviewers. Call 828-505-1444 to register.
April 30 – May 1, 2011 (Sat-Sun): Asheville, N.C.
FUSION of the FIVE ELEMENTS 2 & 3.
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. 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 the level, much faster than using 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 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.
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.
