Overview 1—54 - Goal of this Book Goal of this Book All Universal Tao books are based on the real experiences of the many people who practice the system diligently. This book is for both beginning and advanced students. I present this book to you to introduce the foundations of the Universal Tao System.
You will find simple and easy-to-follow instructions on how to awaken the Healing Light, Chi, or life-force within. May the Chi be with you! This book is intended to supplement individual training by the Universal Tao and to serve as a reference guide for these practices. Anyone who undertakes these practices on the basis of this book alone, does so entirely at his or her own risk. Neither the Universal Tao nor its staff and instructors can be responsible for the consequences of any practice or misuse of the information contained in this book.
If the reader undertakes any exercise without strictly following the instructions, notes, and warnings, the responsibility must lie solely with the reader. Since childhood he has been studying the Taoist approach to life. His mastery of this ancient knowledge, enhanced by his study of other disciplines, has resulted in the development of the Universal Tao System which is now being taught throughout the world. At this point, Master Chia began his studies of the Taoist way of life in earnest.
He learned how to circulate energy through the Microcosmic Orbit and, through the practice of Fusion of the Five Elements, how to open the other Six Special Channels. He was soon able to clear blockages to the flow of energy within his own body.
He then learned Chi Nei Tsang from Dr. Mui Yimwattana in Thailand. He learned the closely guarded secret of the organs, glands and bone marrow exercise known as Bone Marrow Nei Kung and the exercise known as Strengthening and Renewal of the Tendons.
Master Pan Yu also taught him about the exchange of Yin and Yang power between men and women, and how to develop the Steel Body. To understand the mechanisms behind healing energy better, Master Chia studied Western anatomy and medical science for two years.
He eventually trained other Instructors to communicate this knowledge and he established the Natural Healing Center in Thailand. He has trained and certified over 1, instructors and practitioners from all over the world.
He presents the Universal Tao System in a straightforward and practical manner, while always expanding his knowledge and approach to teaching. Master Chia estimates that it will take thirty five books to convey the full Universal Tao System. He is the first recipient of this annual award.
In February , the Immortal Tao practices will be held at Tao Garden for the first time using the Dark Room technology creating a complete environment for the higher level Taoist practices. We offer our eternal gratitude to our parents and teachers for their many gifts to us.

At the time, I was working as a war correspondent in Africa, and the Six Healing Sounds were very effective in relieving high levels of stress. Most important, Taoism taught sexual vitality as an essential aspect of spiritual development.
Over the next decade, this organization succeeded - 19 - Preface in making many of the most arcane secrets of Chinese internal alchemy accessible to Westerners. The Microcosmic Orbit is the key to balancing energies in the body. Its impact has been widespread, as it provided the piece of the puzzle missing from many of the partial teachings arriving in the West from India.
These only showed the energy ascending up the spine, a practice that can lead to spaciness and which ultimately weakens the body if the aroused bioenergy is transferred to the head center prematurely.
Awaken Healing Light of the Tao is a sequel that expands on the basic methods of cultivating Chi in the Microcosmic Orbit. It offers a deeper glimpse of Taoist spiritual theory and more advanced meditational methods for absorbing higher frequencies of energy into the basic Orbit.
There are many excellent yoga and martial arts teachers with effective methods of cultivating Chi or prana, as it is known in India. They use special - 20 - Preface postures, gentle circular movements such as Tai Chi Chuan, and physical breathing to stimulate and regulate the flow of Chi. I found it simple and satisfying to integrate these internal Taoist practices into yoga, Tai Chi, and other kinds of meditation. The energy body is the key to manifesting spirit. The highest power one can manifest in this dimension is physical immortality.
I found this idea hard to swallow at first. The Bible mentions elders living years, and stories from Atlantis talk of people living thousands of years.
Modern human beings have degenerated, but I accept the Taoist teaching that it is - Preface never too late to change oneself.
Higher Self Cosmic Force energy is golden, and Universal energy is violet as it is stepped down through the polestar.
The generative force of the earth reflected in the seven stars of the Big Dipper is red, and sexual energy in humans is pink, the mixing of blood and semen. Chakras and the Microcosmic Orbit. How are the seven chakras related to the Microcosmic Orbit? As a longtime student of hatha yoga, kundalini yoga, and kriya yoga, I feel qualified to answer that the Microcosmic Orbit balances and integrates all the chakra into a single unified chakra.
To step up the energy level of one chakra requires more energy flowing through the entire system. The Chinese call the two most primordial forces Yin the receptive and Yang the radiant.
Rotating Chi in the Orbit up the spine and down the front channel regulates the positively and negatively charged points opposite the chakras. I believe these polarities create the minor vortices called chakras, causing them to spin like wheels. To a beginner, these many different practices and energies can be a bit overwhelming. For this reason, beginners may find it easier to first read Awaken Healing Energy Through the Tao Aurora Press, to get a simple and firm grounding in the basic orbit and inner smile, without worrying about absorbing higher frequencies from Earth or Heaven.
It is a major shift for most people to even examine the existing vibrational patterns in their own body. Awaken Healing Light of the Tao will provide a more sophisticated overview of spiritual practices that range from beginning to advanced. It is best to proceed slowly, starting with the basic Orbit, and eventually all the practices will become familiar and simple variations on one theme: how to play with your life-force.
It will speed your growth if you can connect with a Taoist instructor or community, or come to a week-long Universal Tao summer retreat. Once you have stabilized changes in your energy body, you can focus more on the Yin or receptive phase: sitting in stillness and growing your Shen, your immortal body, which is nothing more than your spirit descended into and stabilized within this physical dimension.
Your life is your own unique spiritual path, and if you cultivate your inner light, it will always shine on the Great Way or Great Tao. He lives on a mountaintop with his wife, Joyce Gayheart, where they grow younger each year. He teaches Taoist meditation, sexology, and self-healing privately in North Carolina. It is a widespread belief that we have some kind of energy inside our bodies called life-force. Those who have strong and abundant life-force enjoy perfect health and vitality.
In old age and sickness, this life-force gets weaker. When it becomes totally dissipated, the flesh-and blood body dies. Unfortunately, most people have only a vague notion of life-force; medical doctors and scientists are just beginning to investigate this energy. Serious study of the life-force was, however, a closely guarded secret in most esoteric schools throughout history in such diverse parts of the world as Egypt, the Himalayas, and Tibet, and among various traditions of shamanic and psychic healers.
Secrecy was thought necessary because exploiting such knowledge for selfish purposes could lead to great harm to others and eventually backfire on oneself as well. The destruction of the legendary Atlantis was frequently cited as the foremost example of such misuse. China was an exception to this rule of secrecy. Over the last five thousand years, tens of millions of Chinese have practiced Chi Kung, healing their own illnesses and in many cases actually saving their own lives.
Millions more have benefited from acupuncture, which has cured many diseases and relieved much suffering. The theory and practice of traditional Chinese medicine is based on restoring the normal physiological flow of Chi energy in the body and correcting abnormal flow with herbs, needles, focused heat application moxibustion , focal point massage, and other means.
