The Mantak Chia PDX Workshop 2017 was a long awaited, three day Memorial weekend for us. Our great enthusiasm for the first day was met with utter disappointment and bewilderment as we could not find the class, other workshop attendees, or most importantly, Master Chia. We went home and moped around in confusion. Many hours later an instructor who teaches in Eugene, Oregon called us back. It turns out the coordinator of the event had changed the location and we some how did not get notified. After writing down the location for the next day, we went out to see a movie to help bring us back to neutral. After the movie Dan checked his messages and the coordinator left a very apologetic message. Apparently he got into a car wreck in Thailand and broke his leg.
The next morning we arrived to the second day of the workshop. We were still enthusiastic, but we couldn’t help but feel a little jaded. We met the coordinator who had crutches. He apologized again and gave us a full six set of Chi Cards, which are cards that have a quick list of information to help with the Taoist exercises. The coordinator is also a senior instructor and gave Dan a special discount for private training lessons that will happen in July.
Despite the rough start we were both grateful to have attended this workshop. Veronica thought it would be nice if we both shared our experiences in an informal conversational style.
Dan: What was your favorite part of the workshop and why?
Veronica: I liked the “wheels”, because it felt good…and the Crane-neck and the Turtle-neck exercises.
Dan: Do you mean Turning the Water Wheel?
Veronica: Yes. Turning the Water Wheel, Crane-neck, and Turtle-neck all helped undo the tightness in my spine. On the first day, when we were doing crane-neck, then turtle-neck, with spinal rocking in between sets, the chronic ache in my right shoulder was flaring up. This is a common problem spot for me, it’s where all my stress goes. I felt a little worried that it would get worse and I wouldn’t want to finish the workshop, but the next day the pain was totally gone. On the second day, Master Chia talked about how the qi will go to a problem spot like that and it will hurt, but it’s because that spot is being healed.
Turning the Water Wheel is an exercise I want to do everyday. When I take the time to turn the wheels, I have a noticeable increase in energy for the rest of my day. After doing qigong for 8 hours a day on Saturday and Sunday, I had plenty of energy for the whole week.
Dan: I really like the principle of Turning the Water Wheel in that you can harness your sexual arousal, multiply it, then energize other energy centers in your body, such as your heart or brain. Plus the rhythmical motion feels good on the spine.
Veronica: Yea, in the workshop I didn’t really feel the sexual arousal part, but just the motion of the exercise felt really good for my spine and my shoulders. I still sensed some tingling of energy moving through my different “wheels”, too. When I practice this at home, I would describe it more like an energizing of my ovarian palace, not like full on arousal, and I can sense the energy moving through my body. What Mantak Chia said about how the kidneys store your life force is really interesting, too.
Dan: I haven’t spent as much time on this exercise as you have. I have been exploring how to open up my Microcosmic Orbit, which you know was covered during our workshop. When I focus my energy at the sperm palace and the perineum, I can feel a tingling sensation. As I keep practicing I am starting to notice more sexual arousal coming from that area that is reminiscent of my pubescent years. Thinking on this makes me wonder if most of my sexual arousal of adolescent years have become more cerebral and less from my genitals. I haven’t really thought about where sexual arousal can come from–from your mind, your genitals, or from the devil!
Veronica: Well, that’s the point that Mantak Chia is making. He talks about how we are sexually stimulated by media like advertisements that want to sell things to us, and how this method works. I never had a lot of instruction in my upbringing about what to do with my sexual energy, but I had creative outlets that I could transmit that energy to. Aside from that, my sexual energy was directed against me like the way Michel Foucault suggests in The History of Sexuality, meaning my sexuality is constantly being manipulated by images and propaganda. But, to get back to qigong, and where the energy comes from, I really appreciated how Mantak addressed the serious problems that can happen if one represses their sexuality. Did he mention if the sexual energy was related to the energy that we receive from Mother Earth?
Dan: I don’t know if we receive sexual energy from the Earth…Mantak did say that we are born with 100% of Original force which is given to us from the Primordial force. 50% goes to the body and can’t be used, 25% goes to the kidneys for emergency use, and 25% goes to the sexual organs which can be transformed and multiplied for other uses. I know that we can root energy from the Earth, but I don’t know if that energy is different from sexual energy. I believe that there are at least two different energies, one that is yang and the other that is yin.
Veronica: I don’t remember if it was discussed at the workshop, but I’m curious if yang energy comes from Earth through our feet or root chakras and yin is the “cosmic” energy that comes down through our crowns. Master Chia said that you can take your negative energy and let it flow into Earth, and that Earth composts that bad energy, turning it into good energy. The yellow energy from the Earth, he said, flows up through your feet and is associated with health, wealth, and longevity.
This correlates with what I’ve been learning through In Sacred Balance, and their nature-based, feminine spirituality philosophy. Some of the guided meditations I’ve learned through In Sacred Balance begin by visualising the golden energy of Mother Earth flowing up through the soles of the feet. I find it very rooting and centering, which is also how Turning the Water Wheel feels. This earth energy is joined by the heavenly, or cosmic energy that makes our bodies a point between Earth and Sky. Mantak Chia called the heavenly energy “the father” and says that that energy gives us answers and blessings.
He then briefly talks about different types of sexual relations that result in healing. This was toward the end of the last day. He described Soul Sex for emotional balance and harmony, Physical sex for healing, building energy, and mind energy and Spiritual sex to “delete your name from book of death & add it to book of life.”
Dan: Yeah there was a lot of information to digest, which lead to more questions.
Veronica: So, you’re embarking on your qigong certificate training with The Professor soon. How are you feeling about that?
Dan: I am excited about it. It is another step closer to the idea of becoming certified for the Universal Healing Tao system. A good part of me likes the idea of supplementing our income with teaching. I also fancy the personal enrichment and accomplishment of certification. Another aspect that I have brought up in other articles, is that it feels like life is leading me down this path, but for what end I don’t know. I figure it is a good spiritual investment that is already beneficial in so many ways.
