In the Inner Alchemy the mastery of the basic exercises like Inner Smile, Six Healing Sounds, Microcosmic Orbit and the knowledge of the 5 Element System according to classical Chinese medicine is required.
Emotions such as fear, anger, excessive anxiety, depression and pondering can do great harm to our body-mind-soul unit. Energy losses can also result from overwork, stress, accidents, surgery, drugs and toxins, bad and contaminated food, and especially job insecurity. As we begin to practice the meditations of higher inner alchemy without successfully balancing and harmonizing our mind-body system, unpleasant phenomena may arise from the deeper parts of our soul.
So in the first part of the Inner Alchemy, the 3 levels of the UHT FUSION of the 5 Elements need to be mastered. It is considered the "jewel" of Taoist meditation because of its great effectiveness in transforming disharmonious emotions. In the alchemical practices of FUSION, various Pakua (Ba Gua) and gathering points are used to extract, bind, and harmonize adherent, emotional energies from the organs. The collection of organ energy does not weaken the organs in any way. In fact, each time you practice the fusion, it is such that the energy of the essences gathered from the organs is fused, purified, and transformed into a life energy of enhanced quality.
The first level of FUSION teaches you how to transform the disharmonious emotions of worry, grief, cruelty, anger, and fear into pure life energy.
The second level of FUSION teaches you how to let the pure energy of the five organs circle as soon as they are free of disharmonious emotions. When the organs are cleansed, the positive feelings of kindness, gentleness, respect, balance, justice and compassion emerge as a natural expression of inner balance. The practitioner can monitor this state of equilibrium by observing the nature of spontaneously forming emotions. Our disharmonious emotions are transformed into radiant virtues in this alchemical process. The Eight Extraordinary Vessels of Classical Chinese Medicine used in these processes are favored in Taoist body alchemy, and the 12 Organ Meridians are used in acupuncture.
In the third stage of FUSION, the practitioner completes the cleansing of the energy pathways in the body by activating the bridge and regulator channels. With the opening and activating of the Microcosmic Orbit (Du Mai and Ren Mai), the ascending central channel (Chong Mai), the belt channels and the yin and yang Bridge and Regulator Channels in the arms and legs, the body is now completely permeable to the circle of life energy. The unimpeded flow of energy forms the basis for perfect physical and mental health. In this stage, you build an extraordinary psychic protective field and learn techniques to solve energy blockages that prefer to attach to the spine, but also to other parts of the body.
To continue studying your own body chemistry in the higher levels, the mastering of the 3 levels 'FUSION of the 5 Elements' is required, to your own mental safety.

At this, already very high level of Taoist energy work, the sexual energy Jing Chi (creative power) is transformed into life force. The key secret of these formulas is that the usual positions of fire and water are reversed mentally in the physical body to release sexual energy. The spread of sexual energy throughout the organism can be thought of as water vapor rising as soon as the water begins to boil above the fire. By interchanging the positions, the heat of the body fire gets under the cool of body water. Without this interchange, the fire simply blazes up and heats or burns the body from within. The water (the sexual fluids) tends to flow down and leave the body. When the water dries up, the body breathes its life. The process of evaporation can be extended over a long time.
The moist warm steam produced carries tremendous energies and is extremely beneficial to health. The glands, as well as the nervous and lymphatic system are regenerated, the circulation of energy and body fluids intensified.
These advanced high practices of Inner Alchemy are taught by Grand Master Mantak Chia in the Darkroom, following the tradition of Taoist masters, meditating in dark caves to keep the mind free from distractions. In the absence of light and distraction, deeper exploration of one's inner alchemy can begin. Extraordinary experiences are to be expected on these highest levels of sinking into one's own body chemistry.
