Universal Healing Tao System

The Tao uses the body (internal organs, sexual organs, tendons, bones, diaphragms, glands etc.), as a tool for spiritual development towards enlightenment.  Our body can produce chi or life force which is the energy to supply into our souls and spirits as we learn to multiply and refine chi. In turn, we strengthen the organs and body, giving us good health, well being and extra energy to deal with difficulties of the modern world.

The culprit of most energy practitioners are the emotions. Instead of allowing our internal energy to multiply the negative emotions, we use that acquired energy to balance the emotions through the art of Inner Alchemy. Proper use and deep understanding of Inner Smile and Six Healing Sounds (the main taoist meditation practices) are the key to “ take out the fast growing weed ” of negative emotions from the soil so that the flowers of positive emotions could grow and occupy our life.  The positive emotions or the virtues add more life force into our life which is also the fuel for our spiritual practice

We learn to fight but not fight, so that nobody can apply their force or their aggression on us with Iron Shirt Chi Kung.  This fundamental practice of Universal Healing Tao provides grounding power and the ability to draw in heaven and earth energy into our body. Tao Yin (taoist yoga), on the other hand, relaxes and stretches body to direct the energy into it as the meaning of the name Tao Yin.
