This is the energy in London at 6pm on the 6th November 2017

Chinese Astrology describes the 5 elements which are based on the cycles of nature. Autumn is the season of Metal, and someone born on the day of our up-coming Essence of the Elements class could have this composition of the 5 elements (but time of birth will vary it slightly). The metal of November the Autumn month and the metal of the Year branch Rooster together with the Fire and Metal day of the 6thNovember 2017 means that metal is dominating. Metal energy involves analyzing and decision making, will this be good for us and our Brexit problems, or for you in your personal lives?

Metal is also the energy of the lungs, the large intestines and the skin. People with deficiencies in these energies will notice improvement in conditions and people with excesses could feel their conditions worsen.

All 5 elements bring us emotional energy, both positive and negative. Metal’s positives are: courage, righteousness, motivation, but the downside is sadness and difficulties in letting go. And so for those easily depressed, these feelings could gain ground.

But Inner Alchemy is about changing our inner core! An easy, basic practice will be taught at the weekend workshop with Mantak Chia: the healing sounds – and the metal sound can re-balance our metal energies to give us better physical energy in the lungs and large intestines and re-cycle sadness and depression into the positive emotions of courage and motivation.

Master Chia will be teaching the Inner Alchemy Basic practices over the weekend and on Monday & Tuesday, a special 2-day class on the Essence of the Elements when you can look at your own 5 element make-up and see how to fine tune it with chi kung and meditations. The 5-element journey continues on Wednesday and Thursday with the invigorating meditations of ‘Fusion of the Five Elements – where we learn to fuse the negative emotions into a positive energy to feed our life force, and to build up protections from negativity.

Mantak Chia is teaching in London from 3-9 November 2017.

You will find it possible to fully grasp and use the Fusion 1 meditations after the class.

Taoist Astrology – Who are these Fire brands?













Notice how Fire is the dominating element in these example charts, but is not always the Day Master. The Day Master tells us how the person uses ‘fire energy’ in their life, and what the effect of it is on them. They could all have benefited from doing Fusion Meditations, their effect on the world might have been different then.

Who do you think they are?

And here is one more chart. Who is this more balanced lady?

But even with this nicely balanced chart, Fusion Meditations will still help calm the storm of difficult in-coming energy cycles.

So can you guess whose charts these are?

The Water Element

Mantak Chia is very well known for his teachings and books on sexual energy.

The Water element is an interesting pointer to sexual energy and sexual behaviour, but that isn’t all. Advanced Inner Alchemy practices, such as ‘Healing Love’ or ‘Bone Marrow Nei Kung’, work more specifically on using sexual energy to energise all functions and parts of the body.

Using this energy involves connecting with the primordial forces of the Universe, and the ‘Water’ element energy helps with this; it is the spiritual energy. This can make a person very philosophical. Other energies, which we call ‘symbolic stars’ in our Inner Alchemy Astrology chart, can also enhance our philosophical energy.
Why am I like I am?” You can look at your 5 element composition and see the ‘energy’ of your major organs. This can help you understand health problems, events in your life and your feelings and desires. More importantly, you can learn Inner Alchemy practices to balance these energies, and bring more harmony to your life and apply meditations, mindfulness’ more aptly to yourself.
Mantak Chia is teaching in London a 4-day course (6-9 Nov) on balancing your elements. Find out more here:

Such Charisma, but is the Man a Rat?

Above is the classical BAZI or Chinese Astrology chart, calculated for the hour, day, month year of this gentle rat’s birth. We all know our ‘animal’, in the animal branch line of the year pillar, but is that it? Well first, Chinese Astrology does not consider the rat to have the same disgusting image as the creatures scurrying about under us in the London sewers: he is industrious, family orientated and hard-working, after all he gets up early, rat is the first of the Chinese hours. This energy was called ‘rat’ as it bears some resemblance to the furry ones under our pavements, and sometimes above, hard-working and nocturnal.

But traditional Chinese Astrology is more about your Day Master. Pardon? Yes, that is really ‘who’ you are, and you find that in your heavenly stem line, in the day pillar. Look for yours now.

Our man is Day Master Yin Water, in fact he has a lot of water, our Inner Alchemy Astrology programme makes a pictogram showing the percentages of your 5 elements and unsurprisingly from all the waters in his bazi chart, he has a lot of water.






So we have a gentle, very communicative bloke with great will power as he can flow around obstacles in life to show us his 71% strong views on life. (that is very strong) And that rat, or those 2 rats, give him a certain charisma; his life is quite ‘exceptional’ and one of the exceptional aspects is having 3 of his 4 ‘animals’ in his bazi, from the charismatic animal section. His day branch – the rooster – is charismatic too. So all this charisma, together with such a touchy-feely predominance of his day master water, energetically reaches out to us. He is a well-known international figure, an icon whose image resembles our astro-description above. Who is it?

The first step in self-health care

The wisdom of the ancient Taoists knew no bounds. The Healing Tao, brought to the West by Grand Master Mantak Chia, reveals their complete system of health, well-being and healing. A powerful aspect of the system is Chi Nei Tsang – a form of abdominal massage that acts directly on the vital organs to free blockages, release emotion and enable chi to flow freely and heal the body and mind.

This October, a new course of Chi Nei Tsang I is starting. If you’re already familiar with it, come along to refresh your skills and use it towards your qualification. If you’re new to Chi Nei Tsang, you’ll discover a powerful tool for self-healing, health maintenance and the healing of others.

The course covers how to:

  • Relax the mind and body, relieving worry, stress and anxiety
  • Unravel tensions in the intestines and organs
  • Help the body expel accumulated toxins from food, drugs and the environment
  • Restore energy flow – promoting natural healing and breathing
    Relieve aches, pains and digestive dysfunction

The four-day course will be held over two weekends. This enables you to assimilate and deepen your knowledge with practice in between sessions. Questions that may arise during this time will also be answered over the second weekend.
