Spiritual Tao News -- June 2022 - Summer Solstice and Qigong

Spiritual Tao News -- June 2022 - Summer Solstice and Qigong


Universal Healing Tao

Spiritual Tao Workshops Certificate Program Spiritual Tao Website

Dear friends of Qigong and Tai Chi,


Summer is here! 

Maybe it is not technically here according to the Western Calendar, but it certainly is here energetically as many of us are experiencing the arrival of a major heat wave this week. 

It's only a week and a half until the Summer Solstice!

This newsletter contains some brief info about energetic aspects of the Summer Solstice and some details on two upcoming qigong possibilities:

1.  Qigong Meditation Basics 3 ONLINE -- Starts next month July 16  (
See below)

2.  Inner Alchemy Qigong 1 CERTIFICATION program ONLINE -- Starts Aug 8  (
See below)

More details and schedule below . . .


Just like the moon affects the tides on the planet, the energetic shifts affected by the sun have an impact on our life. 

In the moments when things energetically shift, there is an energetic pause when your personal will can exert greater influence than normal on your life.

This is similar to pushing on a swing at just the right time, to make the swing more easily move as you want it to.

Summer Solstice is the point of maximum yang (in the Northern Hemisphere).  It is a gear-shift point between increasing daylight and increasing darkness when you can most easily grab energetic possibilities and flow into new directions.

Summer Solstice 2022 is June 21, 2022 at 5:13am Eastern Daylight Time.  Most optimal time to cast forward your dreams while doing qigong would be 12:00pm on June 20, 2022, the day before.  This is the point of maximal yang before the shift happens.

While there are certainly ceremonial qigong forms that could be done to amplify your intention, really any qigong will do, if you set aside the time and space to focus on what you want to manifest right now.

Summer Solstice is not about planning for the future.  It is about asking for what you want --for yourself--right now, without any lag time.

Cast forward that intention as you do your favorite qigong form to amplify your manifestation potential.


Brain rejuvenation and spiritual awakening by "Awakening the Healing Light"

This is coming up next month during the July 16-17 + July 23-24 weekends.  

It does require some background, but is open enrollment to all, even if you did not have the previous two courses with me. 

If you have had some basics elsewhere, you are welcome to jump in. 

This class starts the "Advanced Basics material", where we begin to Awaken the Healing Light. 

Even for people who think they know basics, I guarantee you that there is a lot to learn in this class.

The big theme for the course is "Awaken the Healing Light + the Three Fires and Six Directions Form". 

Awakening the Healing Light is about learning how to awaken your spiritual consciousness to the healing light and be able to start working with it. 

The Three Fires and Six Directions form is a long qigong form, a required part of Certified Instructor training, that is not often taught in full by other instructors. 

The form activates the three fires, draws in energy from the universe, incorporates the awaken healing light, and some immune qigong.

Qigong Meditation Basics 3 reviews the practices of Qigong Meditation Basics 2 and continues beyond that second course to focus on qi power methods, awakening healing light, and getting more deeply grounded through new techniques.

Topics include:

1.  Review of QMB2 breathing techniques:  qi ball methods and other methods to ignite internal energy e.g. "Holding the One (Activation of Three Fires)".

2.  Review of QMB2 qigong methods:  Deep Earth Pulsing, Phoenix, Iron Bridge, Tao Yin sets #1 and #2, and the Activate the Three Fires Form (part 1 to the Three Fires and Six Directions Form).

3.  Awaken the Healing Light:  lots of different methods to activate the crystal palace to draw in the primordial light

4.  Advanced Qi Ball Methods:  Counterforce Breathing and Wudang Microcosmic Orbit

5.  Three Fires and Six Directions Form:  we review part 1 of this form from the Basics 2 course and do Six Directions, Activate Crystal Palace, and Immune Qigong.  By the end of the course, you will have learned this long form in its entirety.

6.  Introduction to Iron Shirt 1, focusing on "Embracing the Tree".

Learn how "Embracing the Tree", which is a standing posture, got its name . . .

7.  Preparation for the Advanced Healing Light practices (Wisdom Qigong) done in the Basics 4 course.

This two-weekend online class in Qigong Meditation Basics 3 is only $195 for both weekends. 

By the way, each student will receive an Attendance Certificate (upon completion of course), which can be used toward Associate Instructor or Certified Instructor certification, with either myself or another registered Senior Instructor when your hours are completed.

INNER ALCHEMY QIGONG 1 Certification Program ONLINE -- Starts August 8

INNER ALCHEMY QIGONG 1 certification program ONLINE:  MWF for 9 weeks, starting Aug 8  (OPEN enrollment)

Note:  To accommodate multiple time zones as well as scheduling conflicts, I will teach each day's session TWICE.  You can simply pick--on any given day--which class you wish to attend.

For certification purposes, we need you to be able to attend LIVE ONLINE to most classes, but some absences are OK.

What is this program?

There is a separate qigong line in Master Chia's system, separate from the main certification line.  This qigong is called the Inner Alchemy Qigong branch.  

Not that many people are certified in this branch, and it is my goal to help expand those that are qualified to teach this branch.

Since this qigong branch is separate from Master Chia's main alchemy line, one can get certified with a relatively low commitment of time and effort to learn the material.

This nine-week program gives you all the required hours and training for certification in ALL FOUR of the level 1 qigongs.  Simply take this program, and you will be able to test for any one (or up to 4!) separate qigong certifications.  

These are internationally recognized qigong certifications and upon certification, you will be listed in Master Chia's database as certified in these (up to four) certifications.

What are these four certifications?

1.  Wisdom Qigong:  Learn to how Awaken the Healing Light and use this for brain rejuvenation.  We learn to open the heavenly eye and draw in the violet light.  Learn how to connect to the Feng Shui forces of the Earth, as well as the higher level energies of the planets and galaxies.

2.  Craniosacral Qigong:  A physical body qigong designed to activate the cranial and sacral pumps, to cleanse the blood, and to improve mobility in the neck and sacrum.  As an added bonus, it helps stimulate the flow of sexual energy in the body to revitalize the body, as well as support those who wish to do sexual energy cultivation work.  This is probably one of the most important qigongs to maintain a healthy vibrant body.

3.  Stem Cell Qigong:  A qigong designed to continue the blood cleaning work of Craniosacral Qigong, to clean the kidneys, to detoxify the organs of sick qi, as well as ways to activate stem cells in the body.  The activation of stem cells will help assist in the repair of sick areas in the body.  This Stem Cell Qigong component also includes some elementary work in the bone marrow to assist in the formation of healthy stem cells.

4.  Five Element Qigong:  A qigong counterpart to the Stem Cell Qigong that is designed to help tonify the vital organs.  It uses activation of the tendon system, flowing qigong movements, organ vibration with color, and internal meditation.  It is a healthy body qigong that is fun and feels good!

More details

There are no prerequisites for this program.
The program is totally self-contained.

Upon successful completion of this program, you have the opportunity to test for a single certification or even all four certifications.

There is no obligation to test at the end.  One can just take the program to learn the material and/or delay testing to another day.

Each week will feature a different qigong practice set.  You will receive a handout of these practice sets, as well as a recording of the practice set (until Nov 30) to enable you to continue practicing outside of class.


Inner Alchemy Qigong 1 certification program is $595/person.  Testing fees are separate at test time.  Anyone is eligible to test if they meet attendance conditions, but anyone can also enroll for the coursework without any testing.

For other workshops, tuition is only $195/person for the two-weekend courses (reviewers $125, contact me).  Restricted classes require prerequisites and enroll through email to me.
