Banyen's Description: 

Dedicated to healers everywhere, this book (a sequel to their Awaken Healing Energy Through the Tao) is an updated edition of Awaken Healing Light of the Tao.

In 1983, Mantak Chia introduced the “Microcosmic Orbit” to the West. Prior to that time, most of the Eastern energy practices transmitted to the West were incomplete, dealing only with the ascending yang/masculine channel, which shoots life-force energy up the spine. The Microcosmic Orbit showed practitioners how to establish the descending yin/feminine channel of the life-force energy loop. Within Taoist systems, cultivating feminine energy has always been seen as the key to gaining balance and wholeness.

Healing Light of the Tao presents the more advanced methods of chi cultivation in the Microcosmic Orbit, offering a full understanding of Taoist spiritual theory through its comprehensive overview of the complete Taoist body-mind-spirit system. The book also includes more advanced meditation methods for absorbing the higher frequencies of Earth Force, Cosmic Force, and Universal Force (Heavenly chi) into the basic orbit. It establishes a spiritual science that not only emphasizes practical benefits to health, sexual vitality, and emotional balance, but also shows how changes made in the energy body can lead to physical rejuvenation that the Taoists called immortality.

The basic teaching here is a circulation of the life-force, or Chi, in a simple loop up the spine and down the front acupuncture channels of the body. This balancing of Yang (male) and Yin (female) currents of bioenergy is a direct path to wellbeing at all levels.

This large, illustrated text describes different Taoist practices that help amplify and refine reception of these energies: Iron Shirt Chi Kung for rooting the Earth Force, Fusion of the five Elements for transmuting emotional energy, Healing Love for harnessing sexual impulses for spiritual purposes, and Kan and Li (“water and fire”) meditation for stabilizing the Higher Self and dissolving all boundaries so as to receive guidance and love from the Universal Force.

Among Mantak Chia’s many other titles are Chi Self-Massage and Healing Love through the Tao.
