Join Grandmaster Mantak Chia and Dr. David Twicken in the magnificent mountains of Thailand for a special Taoist healing retreat. At the foothill of the Himalayan mountains is an oasis called Tao Garden. Its purpose is to provide a place for people from all the world to learn and practice healing arts to enhance their physical, emotional and spiritual well being in a natural and supportive setting. Supported by clean mountain air, natural water, organic fruits and vegetables and like-minded people, this retreat is a unique opportunity to increase your vitality and health with the Taoist healing arts.
The ancient Chinese understood the inseparable nature of heaven, humanity and earth and called this unity the Three Treasures. In this unique workshop grandmaster Chia and Dr. Twicken will present how to use Taoist practices to enhance your three treasures: your physical, emotional and spiritual life. You will learn about a Chinese Astrology birth chart and natural healing methods to
balance your body, mind and spirit. The Chinese astrology chart, which is called the four pillars, is a roadmap of your life.
This workshop is for anybody that would like to learn how to use Taoist healing methods for self-healing and healing others.
Chinese astrology reflects the heaven treasure. It is a blueprint of your life. It’s your destiny code. Chia and Twicken will show how to understand the Chinese astrology life code and how it relates to your physical, emotional and spiritual condition. David Twicken is an author, practitioner and teacher of Chinese astrology and one of the leaders in this field from the west. He specializes in the medical and spiritual aspects of Chinese astrology. Mantak Chia has used this system to treat physical, emotional and spiritual conditions for 40-years.
Qi Gong and Taoist Inner Alchemy reflects the human treasure. It is how we can influence our life with our own actions and practice. Using medical Qi gong and Taoist internal alchemy, which is the inner medicine, we teach how to balance the constitutional five-element condition. Based on Grandmaster Chia’s 40-years of experience of Qi going and internal alchemy, he will share how to harmonize the organs and body’s Qi condition to find balance, health and vitality. Dr. Twicken will show the links between Chinese medical astrology and Qi gong and how the practices influence our physical, emotional and spiritual life. We will show how the five shen are influenced by our birth condition. Twicken and Chia will show how Qi gong and alchemy can transform old patterns and imprints, allowing for new and spontaneous living. This is living in the Tao. Chia will
teach how to rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Included are the healing sounds, five-element inner smile, animal frolics, five yin organ Qi gong and much more.
Feng Shui represents the earth treasure and is a powerful way to influence your life. Feng Shui is the ancient art of living in harmony with your environment and living spaces. Dr. Twicken and Grandmaster Chia will show how to use Earth’s energy with feng shui to support your health and vitality based on your four pillars astrology destiny/life code. Using favorable directions and locations, feng shui can be a practical and effective way to enhance your physical health, emotional wellness and spiritual well-being. Dr. Twicken will also include how to enhance prosperity based on classic water dragon feng shui methods.
Qi Men Dun Jia is a unique combination of the three treasures. It includes the heaven, human and earth treasures. Qi Men Dun Jia is a highly regarded method of taking the right action at the right time. Until recently this method has been kept a secret or presented in such a cryptic way it would be beyond the capacity of most to understand. Chia and Twicken have created a way to allow all people
to use a significant part of the method to enhance your life. To my knowledge, this is the first time Qi Men Dun Jia is presented with Chinese astrology, medical Qi gong, innner-alchemy and feng shui to harmonize and enhance your life. You will learn how to use auspicious directions and times to support your medical Qi gong and inner alchemy practice. Using favorable directional energies
at the right time is the essence of Chinese metaphysics and all systems related to cycles of time. This is a powerful way to connect to nature’s energy to support your life. This is a highly customized method for each person.
