The Universal Healing Tao is a practical system of self-development that enables individuals to complete the harmonious evolution of their physical, mental and spiritual, bodies. Through a series of ancient Chinese meditative and internal energy exercises, the practitioner learns to increase physical energy, release tension, improve health, practice self-defense and gain the ability to heal oneself and others. In the process of creating a solid foundation of health and well-being in the physical body, one also creates the basis for developing their spiritual potential.
By learning to tap the natural energies of the Sun, Moon, Earth, Stars and environmental forces around us, the practitioner attains the ability to develop and nurture a solid spiritual body. The ultimate goal of Taoist practice is to transcend physical boundaries through the development of the soul and the spirit within man. The Universal Healing Tao (UHT) practices are derived from ancient techniques rooted in the processes of nature. They have been gathered and integrated into a coherent, accessible system for well-being. UHT is not a religion and does not require the belief in any set of deities or gods. The techniques work directly with the life force, ‘Chi,’ flowing through the meridian system of the body. The aim of the UHT is to restore the individual to a condition of harmony with the flow of the forces of nature. Master Chia’s method of teaching is direct and practical. Years have been spent developing and perfecting techniques for passing these traditional practices to Western students. The emphasis is always on mastering the actual practice.
The system includes a complete set of practices divided into the Four Branch Healing Arts System of the Universal Healing Tao. Courses are generally taught as part of a winter, summer, workshop and seminar ongoing class. Depending on time constraints, daily schedule, several courses, or fewer, may be offered within the given format.

Qualified students will be evaluated and possibly certified to heal & teach others using these techniques. Cosmic Chi Kung is also known as Holy Buddha Palm. The reason we train with the Empty Force practice in connection with the Cosmic Healing is to learn how to project Chi through the space in the cosmos, the space between your hands and to project Chi through the space to your students. Usually when we touch the student we pick up sick energy. This practice will teach you how to ground the sick energy to the earth and to disperse it into the Universe to be decomposed and recycled by the planets. Taught by Master Chia
