This volume, for the advanced student who has mastered the practices of Lesser Kan and Li and Greater Kan and Li, explains how to establish the cauldron at the Heart Center to collect cosmic light, activate the Cranial and Sacral Pumps, and align the Three Triangle Forces. Merging energy at the Heart Center then leads to the birth of the immortal spirit body, uniting the practitioner with the Tao and allowing him or her to draw limitless energy and power from the Cosmos.
Used by Taoist masters for thousands of years, the Greater Kan and Li formulas are for advanced students of Taoist Inner Alchemy and mark the beginning of the path to immortality. The exercises include how to harness the energies of Sun, Moon, Earth, North Star, and Big Dipper; how to reverse yin and yang power at the solar plexus; and how to connect astral energy with the energies of animals, children, and plants to grow the immortal fetus.
Fa Jin, an advanced yang style of Tai Chi, enables the practitioner to harness energy in the lower tan tien and discharge it as an explosively powerful blow. Integrates the teachings of Bruce Lee who made the “one-inch punch” technique famous.
Wu-style Tai Chi follows, rather than directs, the flow of chi energy and is a gentle Tai Chi form for beginners. Centered on a stance with feet closer together and arms closer to the body, these techniques for building a personal short-form Tai Chi Wu practice can bring about a broad range of health benefits.
