Inner Alchemy Qigong series

Beginner-friendly course in Tao Garden with legendary Taoist Master Mantak Chia

Nov 10 - 13 IA Qigong Level I

Nov 17 - 21 IA Qigong Level II


About Mantak Chia

Grandmaster Mantak Chia is the world’s foremost Taoist Master. He is the only Qigong Master who received The Qigong Master of the Year Award twice. He is the author of 60 books and has 49 years of teaching experience —online and onsite.

The classes with Mantak Chia are unique, thanks to his ability to transmit energy to his students, online or in the classroom. Many students practicing with Master Chia not only witness the wisdom of primordial violet light during his Energy Transmissions but also begin their initial healing processes.

About the Series

Mantak Chia is one of the few Qigong Masters who teaches the non westernized Inner Alchemy of Qigong. He will guide you through the Taoist secrets of inner workings for the highest benefit of your Qigong training.

Inner alchemy aims to promote the circulation of Qi (Life force) throughout the body and use this Qi for healing purposes. It is much more challenging than physical practice and can be much more intensive. The transformation begins with the simple process of transforming the negative emotional energies in the vital organs into the positive qualities. 

Start your transformation with Inner Alchemy Qigong: a dynamic mix of moving qigong, standing qigong, breath work, meditation and energy cultivation practices. In Mantak Chia’s own words “This is the essence of qigong”.



The workshops are perfect for anyone who:

  • Would like to boost their energy, stay healthy and learn non westernized Taoist Inner Alchemy of Qigong
  • Would like to become Inner Alchemy Qigong Instructor (see certification steps below)

Nov 10 - 13 IA Qigong Level I

November 10-12: workshops with Grandmaster Mantak Chia 4 Qigong forms: Craniosacral, 5 Element, Wisdom and Stem Cell qigong

November 13: Review class with instructor

Craniosacral Qigong form integrates physical energy and emotion in the cosmic flow. It offers simple, powerful self-care practices by focusing on the cranial and sacral pumps and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.

The 5 Element Qigong form involves an extensive range of movement and breathwork that activates all of the internal organs and soft tissue related to the 5 Elements. Opening the joints, relaxing the muscles, releasing tension and strain that build up from everyday living.

With Wisdom Qigong, you will use Taoist techniques to double or triple your mind power and gain vitality in your body and organs. One of the techniques is to connect with your abdominal brain to reduce energy loss.

With Stem Cell Qigong you will discover how to strengthen your immune system. By gently using a hitting technique to the body and organs, the old, sick and damaged cells will be broken down and then completely repaired by your stem cells.

In the workshops of this week you’ll learn to:

  • Increase flexibility of your spine and flow of spinal fluid
  • Optimize your nervous system and the body’s energetic flow
  • Transform excess brain activity to revitalize the organs
  • Strengthen your immune system with self care practices
  • Activate all of the internal organs and meridians ~ integrating the 5 elements within

Nov 17 - 21 IA Qigong Level II

November 17-20: workshops with Grandmaster Mantak Chia 4 Qigong forms: Tan Tien Qigong, Tao Yin, Buddha Palm, Golden Elixir Qigong.

November 21: Review class with instructor

With Tan Tien Qigong you will learn the power of your Tan Tien - the center of activation and balancing of primal energies. The Tan Tien is a container of Qi and deserves adequate attention for its essential role in our energy management. You’ll learn the 11 animal postures and the Tiger and Dragon Breath to center and refine your energies and emotions.

Tao Yin is a type of Taoist yoga that stimulates the flow of Qi in the meridians - the energy pathways of the body. It coordinates the breath, awareness and mind-eye-heart power with exercises of the spine to leave you feeling more relaxed and revitalized.

Buddha Palm (Cosmic Healing Qigong) is a healing form. It trains the practitioner in moving and channeling Qi. As you learn this form, you’ll feel Qi coming into your body and hands and be able to project Qi with your fingers.

The Golden Elixir Qigong uses the energies of the hair, sense organs and saliva to strengthen the physical body. Golden elixir is the mixture of saliva, other hormonal fluids and external essences. This elixir is a major transformer for higher spiritual work and has the power to heal oneself. The practice involves breathwork, swallowing saliva and techniques of internal power using the fingers and palms (Five Finger Kung Fu).

In the workshops of this week you’ll learn to:

  • Connect with your abdomen as your first brain, enhancing its ability to store energy
  • Take in Universal Qi and emit Qi from your body to help others
  • Develop elasticity of tendons, ligaments and associated muscles - resulting in improved flexibility and power in your movement patterns
  • Absorb the essence of Nature elixir, Cosmic elixir and Universal Elixir
