Banyen's Description: 

Thousands of years ago the immortals known as the Shining Ones shipwrecked on the Chinese coast. Passing their shamanic practices—such as ecstatic flight and how to find power animals and spirit guides—on to the indigenous people, they also taught them the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel. From the Taoist Medicine Wheel came the principles of yin and yang, the five elements, the eight forces, the Chinese zodiac, and the I Ching. The Taoist Medicine Wheel can also be found at the foundation of traditional Chinese medicine and the esoteric sexual practices of Taoist Inner Alchemy.

In Taoist Shaman, Master Mantak Chia and Kris Deva North explain the shamanic principles of the Taoist Medicine Wheel, how it is oriented on the five elements rather than the four directions, how it relates to the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac and the trigrams of the I Ching, and how it aligns with the eight forces of the pakua. Through illustrated teaching stories, the authors show how the energetic principles of each of the eight forces are reflected in the eight immortals. Guided shamanic meditations based on the Medicine Wheel teach readers how to journey to Heaven’s Garden to meet new spirit guides, create personal power fields for protection and healing, clear karmic influences, and explore scared sexuality with the “Wheel of Love.”

Mantak Chia, Inner Alchemy and Qi Gong master, founded the Universal Healing Tao System in 1979. He is the author of many books including Healing Love through the Tao.
