Hidden inside Nature are mysterious and powerful forces.
In ancient China, shamans observed that the life force flowing in nature,
in the mountains, waterfalls and oceans,
was the same life force flowing in Human Nature, in its body, mind, and spirit.

These Shamens called the Wholeness of Nature, Tao, and the invisible breath of Nature they called Chi.
For the last 8,000 years the masters have designed special spiritual exercises
to improve their physical health and to attune their spirit to Nature's Primordial Forces.

About 800 years ago a Tao Alchemist called Chang Sang Fong created a Chi Kung form
that later became famous as Tai Chi Chuan, extremely useful for Self-Defence.
He also created a special form called WujiGong that was mostly kept secret,
but was preserved by being passed down through a lineage of shamen alchemists.

The magical, graceful movements of this form are designed to gather the Chi or Life Force
from the four Cardinal Directions, and from Mother Earth below, and from the Star Father of Heaven above.
This Chi, when in the body, connects us to the deepest centre of our being, known as Wuji.
Wuji literally means Supreme Unknown, also translated as the Primordial or the Divine Space from which all Creation arises.
In western terms the Wuji is the Godhead from which the Primordial Powers of Nature flow.

The Tao Shamens did not consider that the Centre of the Universe was above our head
but it was deep inside our body. Primordial Chi Kung is a magical, graceful form
and an extremely healing experience
that takes us deeply into our own Primordial Essence.

By keeping in structure throughout the form,
we gently stretch, open and massage meridians, organs, tendons and joints.
Opening our bodies to much thicker, essence.

We cultivate the three treasures of jing chi and shen.
(Jing - physical essence, shen - spirit and chi the energetic communication between jing and shen).
We absorb this essence from all the directions and dimensions, blending it within us into a rich primordial soup
which we circulate through all dimensions of our body.

There are many different aspects of the polarities of yin – yang
summer solstice - winter solstice, noon – midnight, sun - moon, fire - water, man – woman, future - past, heaven - earth
The magic happens when the polarities meet or couple;
when yin and yang create the third force – yuan.
This happens in the yearly cycle of the earth circling the sun, at the spring equinox and the autumn equinox.
In the daily cycle of the earth spinning around its axis, the yuan phase is at sunset and sunrise.
In the kitchen we use fire and water to heat and cook our food, yang fire and yin water together producing yuan steam.
Future and past meet in the present moment, a magical, eternal moment that is truly a present, a gift.

Alchemy - bringing polarities together.
Man & Woman create this magic during lovemaking.
We have both polarities within us and it is good for us to bring these masculine – feminine,
yin - yang polarities together inside us and create the third force, Yuan Chi.
This is Internal Alchemy! This is happens when we engage in Primordial Chi Kung
a most wonderful ceremonial interaction with all the elements of everything
and their source.

We take a shamanic journey to this source,
opening a pathway to ourself and our ancestors for healing and harmony.
We smile a lot.
