Week 1: Inner Alchemy Basic Level I Retreat
The Basic Retreat is training for beginners and intermediate level practitioners, and those desiring a review of first essentials. This week is devoted to reviewing & mastering the Cosmic Inner Smile, Six Healing Sounds, Chi Self-Massage, Microcosmic Orbit, Six Directions & Three Fires, Iron Shirt Chi Kung I and Healing Love.
Inner Smile: The first step in this Inner Alchemy process is to feel the internal energy. The only way to understand the Tao is to feel it inside yourself. You need to feel the internal energy before you can cultivate it. Through the Inner Smile Formula, you literally get in touch mentally with your five vital organs and related-organs (Functional Channel - Front Line), digestive tract (Digestive Channel - Middle Line) and your crown and spinal cord (Governor Channel - Back Line) by using your eyes and smiling down each line connecting with each part of your body. By doing this on a daily basis you will start to develop a personal relationship with yourself on the physical, emotional, mental and energetic (spiritual) levels.
By using the autonomic nervous system internally through your eyes with a para-sympathetic (positive) response you create a good feeling of love in your body. Your heart generates this smiling energy when you focus your eyes into your heart with positive thoughts. When you smile down your body, your body will respond with positive loving energy. This is how we learn to generate love within ourselves instead taking it from others; the abundance of that love within us will spread to others energetically across time and space without trying to give love to anyone. It is like greeting someone with a hand shake, hug or smile: they will respond the same, except now you do it internally to all your internal body parts and you feel relaxed, calm and at peace. By doing so you have created the proper internal environment to proceed with the next step in cultivating your internal energy in a systemic pattern. You always start each following formula with the Inner Smile creating the proper environment for your internal transformation; this is always the first step of your daily practice.
Week 2: Inner Alchemy Basic Level II Retreat
The Basic Retreat is training for beginners and intermediate level practitioners, and those desiring a review of first essentials. During the primary meditations will be studied: Cosmic Orbit & World Link Meditations, Multi Orgasmic, Iron Shirt Chi Kung II, and Wisdom Chi Kung together with very powerful Primordial Chi Kung form.
Cosmic Orbit: To further expand your consciousness we can activate the Three Fires (Tan Tien, Kidney and Heart) into the Three Tan Tiens: Upper (Crown) Mind, Middle (Heart) Mind and Lower (Tan Tien) Mind. We go through the Microcosmic Orbit. This is the Three Minds into One Mind giving you the “I” Power. Once this is complete we are moving the fortified energy in the Six Directions (Up & Down, Left & Right and Front & Back) by opening your awareness into the Cosmos. By activating the Sexual Energy, you are balancing and cultivating this Creative Force for internal transformation (Alchemy) utilizing the Six Directions linking to the Cosmos. This will give you a feeling of buoyancy supported by the Six Directions and the experience of being the center of the universe. We will learn how to harness excess sexual energy and transform it into Chi, or life-force energy.
When we circulate the sexual energy in the Microcosmic Orbit, a continuous energy loop that runs up the spine and down the front of the body, we transform it into self-healing energy that can be stored in the organs and the Three Tan Tiens: Energy Centers in the Brain, the Heart Center, and the Lower Abdomen. By learning to open the Three Tan Tiens to the Six Directions, the Taoist practitioner combines Mind Power with the extension of Chi to draw cosmic energy into the body. When we learn to flow in this way of the Tao, life ceases to be a struggle. This is a continuation of the Microcosmic Orbit activating the Sexual Energy for additional strength then moving this creative energy through the orbit while extending it down through the legs in the Functional and Governing Channels. Then use the Six Directions formula by activating the Three Tan Tiens and Fires to connect with the Cosmos and further expand your awareness.
World Link: The universe has abundant energy to enhance and multiply the enjoyment of our lives. All that we need to do is to be connected to the source. It helps to understand the principle of fusing the Three Minds. Western science now knows there are Three Minds. The First Mind is in the Observing Mind centered in the Brain. The Second Mind is called the Conscious Mind centered in the Heart. The third is the Mind of Awareness centered in the Lower Abdomen (Abdominal Brain). The Three Minds combine to fuse together in the abdomen, creating One Mind. In Chinese this One Mind is called Yi. The World Link of Protection Healing Meditation is a spiritual practice that takes around 15 to 30 minutes.
When people from all around the world link together at the same time they are greatly empowered. It can be practiced easily with the Universal Healing Tao formulas (Three Minds into One, Circle of Fire, Protective Animals & Peaceful Affirmations) then connecting the Yi Power to your Personal Star then to others’ Personal Stars connecting above to the Three Colors (Forest Green, Ocean/Sky Blue & Violet Red) into the emptiness of the universe. Once you synchronize and link the times (Thailand 12:00pm; New York 12:00am & Europe 6:00am) you find your time zone, which could be one hour before or after these morning & evening times and start the practice. This creates a united world for manifestation of personal and collective physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual images and healing on a global basis with answers and solutions to any questions you might have just by collectively projecting into empty space.
Week 3: Fusion I, Tan Tien Chi Kung and Tai Chi Chi Kung I
The Fusion practice focuses on balancing negative and positive emotional energy and channelling the earth and universal forces using the eight forces of the Pakua. Negative energy is transformed and made to blend with positive energy which is then fused into a pearl of pure life-force energy.
Certification Training: To become Associate Instructor you are required to take these two weeks: Week 1 & Week 2 and Upgrade to Instructor you are required to take Week 2 & Week 3.
Week 4: Cosmic Healing I (Cosmic Chi Kung)
Cosmic Healing I is a practice of channelling pure Cosmic Chi for healing. Master Chia will teach how to channel energy for healing the body and through working with a partner, how to heal ourselves and others. The healing energy experience gives the students a feeling of energy buoyancy, recharging them with pure Cosmic Chi.
Week 5: Chi Nei Tsang I: Internal Organ Massage (Certification)
Taoist sages observed that humans often develop energy blockages in and around their internal organs that result in knots and tangles in the abdomen. These can constrict the flow of chi, eventually resulting in physical ailments. By using Chi Nei Tsang I’s 40 techniques of navel and deep organ energy massage you learn to release and clear blockages, toxins, excessive heat and negative emotions.
Week 6: Chi Nei Tsang II & Golden Elixir Chi Kung (Certification)
Chi Nei Tsang II uses the Elbow Technique, working primarily with the trapped winds of the body. These can become sick or evil winds which can lead to heart attack if not released. The student will learn about the Ten Winds, how to chase and discharge them from the body and how to inject good Chi back into the vital organs and glands. Elixir Chi Kung consists of 11 postures; nine of these involve gathering forces through the saliva.
Chi Nei Tsang II: Advanced Chi Nei Tsang is the second level the Chi Nei Tsang practices utilizing hand and pressure point techniques to open up and flush out the Twelve Winds (Liver-Pericardium-Heart, Tongue-Jaw-Eyes-Head, Kidneys, Vena-Aorta-Lumbar, Abdominal, Muscle Cramps, Heart Attacks, Chest Attacks, Legs-Feet, Pain-Numbness-Heat, Nerves-Back & Heat/Cold Attacks) of the body. The Advanced Chi Nei Tsang (CNT II) formulas also use hand techniques on Specific Aliments (Heart Attacks (Life & Death Point), Heart-Kidney-Breast Blockages, Anger-Arthritis Stress, Constipation & Hiatal Hernias) for releasing any blockage or tension, which could cause severe or fatal damage.
The Emotions and Winds accumulate in the abdominal and navel area of the body and CNT II teaches you how to release the Bad Winds and sweep them out to re-establish a healthy flow (Good Winds) of vital energy. This gives you a new approach to healing by understanding the origin of the Winds and the problems they create in the body, and then health can be restored. This restoration of balance and circulation occurs through proper use of CNT II techniques to chase and release the trapped winds. Chi Nei Tsang II will guide you deeper into the rib cage, abdomen and Navel Center teaching you how to use the elbow and knuckle techniques releasing negative emotions, stress, tension, and accumulated sickness and congestion. When this occurs, all vital functions stagnate. Using CNT II techniques in and around the area of the navel provides the fastest method of healing and the most permanent results. The CNT II techniques can be applied to the abdominal center where the Universal, Cosmic Particle, and Earth Forces are combined and stored.
Week 7: Chi Nei Tsang IV Life Pulse Massage
Life Pulse Massage is a healing method for activating the vital pulses of your body. This ancient Taoist healing practice, an advanced branch of traditional Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage, opens a new dimension of healing based on the flow of our vital essence of blood and Chi to improve, revitalize and balance the health of our organs and functions. Blood and chi often flow side by side throughout the body, the blood acting as the vehicle for our vital energy. Areas of slow or congested circulation lead tc blockages in the flow of vital energy and toxin accumulation in the body. The practice of Life Pulse Massage allows these blockages to be cleared, revitalizing cardiovascular function, detoxifying the organs, and restoring the flow of blood and chi throughout the body.
In this fully illustrated guide to Life Pulse Massage, Master Mantak Chia detail abdominal massage practices to open restricted blood vessels, direct blood flow to specific areas for healing, release arterial tension to rebalance high or low blood pressure, and detoxify individual organs and body systems such as the heart, lungs, digestive system, and sexual organs. They show how to clear and activate the master pulses of the navel center and aorta and synchronize these master pulses with the 52 pulses of the whole body for optimum circulation and energy balance. In addition to the five-part Life Pulse Massage practice the authors also include a separate Pumping the Pulse practice that can stand alone or be incorporated into the larger massage. An advanced branch of Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage, Life Pulse Massage incorporates elements from several traditions including traditional Chinese medicine, traditional Thai medicine, and classical Taoist philosophy. Reflecting these traditions, the massage works on several levels to release physical, emotional, and energetic blockages throughout the body, revitalizing the organs, and setting the stage for optimum health.
