The universal healing Tao basic level I is a week-long training for beginners and intermediate-level practitioners, and for those desiring a review of first essentials. Led by Qigong grandmaster Mantak Chia ad Lee Holden, the week is devoted to reviewing and mastering the healing arts of microcosmic orbit, six healing sounds, cosmic inner smile, chi self-message, six directions, and iron shirt chi kung I.
Do chi breathing and rooting to ground while unifying and strengthening bone structure alignment. Circulate the forces of Earth and the universe.
Use the power of smiling to activate the relaxation response in the parasympathetic nervous system. Get rid of negative emotions and rebalance the positive ones. The inner smile is one of the most simple and powerful tools for healing.
Each organ stores parts of the primordial force and negative emotions. The special sound for each of the organs, the special healing color, positive emotion, and special position for each sound - all of these will help restore you back to good health and will help connect you to the primordial force.
Opening the chi flow (the body's life force energy) in the energy pathways from the perineum (the area between the sexual organs and anus) up the spine, through the head and back down the front side of the orbit will help activate the orbiting forces of the solar system and the universe. This will draw in more primordial force from the Earth through the soles of the feet up to the spine, and from the universe in through the crown to combine in the lower tan tien (abdominal area), the heart, and the brain.
Learn how to cultivate, circulate, and store sexual energy. Men will learn how to control ejaculation and transform the sexual energy into chi (life force), which in turn transforms into spirit force. Women will learn how to control menstruation and transform the blood into chi, and likewise transform it into spirit force.
