The Inner Smile

Increasing Chi through the Cultivation of Joy

A guide to the foundational practice of “smiling to the organs” to promote deep relaxation and internal health 

• Presents exercises that dissolve the physical and mental tensions that can cause energy blockages and unhealthy chi flow 

• Shows how to recognize illness at its inception on the organ level and how to balance the emotions to heal it 

The Inner Smile is a practice that focuses gratitude and joy on the internal organs to resolve the physical and mental tensions that can lead to illness. In Taoism negative emotions--anger, sadness, depression, fear, and worry--are seen as low-grade energy that causes chronic disease and steals our major life force by creating energy blockages. Master Mantak Chia shows that the internal awareness produced by the simple yet powerful Inner Smile meditation practice flushes the organs of poisonous negative energy that may be blocking chi energy flow in order to nourish the entire body. 

Just as a genuine outer smile transmits positive energy and has the power to warm and heal, an inner smile produces a high grade of energy that promotes powerful internal healing, deep relaxation, happiness, and longevity. Smiling to the organs and thanking them for the work they do helps to reawaken the intelligence of the body, which, once activated, can dissipate emotional imbalances and inner disharmony before serious illness manifests.

Chi Self Massage

Energetic massage techniques that dispel negative emotions, relieve stress, and strengthen the senses, internal organs, and nervous system:

  • Shows how Chi Massage employs one’s own internal energy to promote rejuvenation
  • Presents Chi Massage techniques for every organ and bodily system
  • Provides a daily practice routine that requires only 5 to 10 minutes to complete

The Western concept of massage primarily concerns muscle manipulation. In the practice of Chi Massage, internal energy, or Chi, is manipulated to strengthen and rejuvenate the sense organs--eyes, ears, nose, tongue, teeth, and skin--and the internal organs. The Taoist techniques in this practice are more than 5,000 years old and, until very recently, were closely guarded secrets passed down from master to student with each master often knowing only a small part of the complete method.

In Chi Self-Massage Master Mantak Chia pieces together the entire system of Chi Massage into a logical routine, revealing the methods used by Taoist masters to maintain their youthfulness. He explains the energetic theory behind Chi Massage and how negative emotions affect the organs and nervous system. By practicing the exercises outlined and following the daily routine that requires only 5 to 10 minutes to complete, readers can strengthen their senses--most notably vision, hearing, and taste--detoxify their internal organs and glands, help control negative emotions, relieve stress and constipation, and improve their complexion, teeth and gums, and overall stamina.


Six Directions Chi Kung

(Three Tan Tiens in Six Directions)


Gives the explanation and step-by-step of the Practices with color illustrations on Warm Up Exercises, True Breathing (Skin Breathing), Six Directions, Activating the Three Fires, Opening the Three Tan Tiens and Opening the Microcosmic Orbit


Iron Shirt Chi Kung Practices

Iron Shirt Chi Kung I - Rooting Power

An introduction to the ancient Kung Fu practice designed to unify physical, mental, and spiritual health:

  • Describes the unique Iron Shirt air-packing techniques that protect vital organs from injuries
  • Explains the rooting practice exercises necessary to stabilize and center oneself
  • Includes guidelines for building an Iron Shirt Chi Kung daily practice

Long before the advent of firearms, Iron Shirt Chi Kung, a form of Kung Fu, built powerful bodies able to withstand hand-to-hand combat. Even then, however, martial use was only one aspect of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, and today its other aspects remain vitally significant for anyone seeking better health, a sound mind, and spiritual growth.

In Iron Shirt Chi Kung Master Mantak Chia introduces this ancient practice that strengthens the internal organs, establishes roots to the earth’s energy, and unifies physical, mental, and spiritual health. Through a unique system of breathing exercises, he demonstrates how to permanently pack concentrated air into the connective tissues (the fasciae) surrounding vital organs, making them nearly impervious to injuries--a great benefit to athletes and other performers. He shows readers how once they root themselves in the earth they can direct its gravitational and healing power throughout their bone structure. Additionally, Master Chia presents postural forms, muscle-tendon meridians, and guidelines for developing a daily practice routine. After becoming rooted and responsive, practitioners of Iron Shirt Chi Kung can then focus on higher spiritual work.


Iron Shirt Chi Kung II - Tendon Nei Kung

A guide to strengthening and repairing the tendons to reverse the effects of aging:

  • Shows how strengthening the tendons can lead to more energy, healthier organs, and prevention of arthritis
  • Explains how to practice the postures alone or with a partner
  • Includes the Mung Beans hitting practice, which repairs damaged tendons and joints; relieves constipation, stomach cramps, and headaches; and aids in detoxification

Healthy tendons are the foundation of true strength in the body. Strong and supple tendons and open joints allow more space to store raw energy, which can then be transformed into higher creative and spiritual energy. The eight postures of Tendon Nei Kung are specifically designed to open the joints and fortify and grow all the tendons in the body, strengthening them as a unit. Like the practice of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, Tendon Nei Kung cultivates the ability to move the earth force up from the ground, through the feet, and into the body, in this case raising it to nourish the tendons.

In Tendon Nei Kung, Mantak Chia explains how to perform the eight postures individually as well as with a partner. He reveals how regular practice of Tendon Nei Kung can help prevent and relieve arthritis by forcing poisoning acid out of the body to make room for healing chi energy. He provides ten supplementary exercises to help heal damaged tendons and joints without strenuous movement and also includes information on the Mung Beans hitting practice, an ancient practice that in addition to repairing damaged tendons and joints also aids in detoxification and relieves constipation, stomach cramps, and headaches. 


Iron Shirt Chi Kung III - Bone Marrow Nei Kung

A guide to nourishing the body through bone marrow rejuvenation exercises:

  • Presents exercises to “regrow” bone marrow, revive the internal organs, and prevent osteoporosis
  • Explains the use of bone breathing and bone compression, “hitting” to detoxify the body, and sexual energy massage and chi weight lifting to enhance the life force within

Most Westerners believe that a daily physical exercise program helps slow the aging process. Yet those whose bodies appear most physically fit on the outside often enjoy only the same life span as the average nonathletic person. It is the internal organs and glands that nourish every function of the body, and it is the bone marrow that nourishes and rejuvenates the organs and glands through the production of blood. By focusing only on the muscles without cultivating the internal organs, bones, and blood, the Western fitness regimen can ultimately exhaust the internal system.

In Bone Marrow Nei Kung Master Mantak Chia reveals the ancient mental and physical Taoist techniques used to “regrow” bone marrow, strengthen the bones, and rejuvenate the organs and glands. An advanced practice of Iron Shirt Chi Kung, Bone Marrow Nei Kung was developed as a way to attain the “steel body” coveted in the fields of Chinese medicine and martial arts. This method of absorbing energy into the bones revives the bone marrow and reverses the effects of aging through the techniques of bone breathing, bone compression, and sexual energy massage, which stimulates the hormonal production that helps prevent osteoporosis. Also included is extensive information on chi weight lifting and the practice of “hitting” to detoxify the body.


Chi Kung Healing Practices

Chi Nei Tsang I

Chi Massage For The Vital Organs

An ancient Taoist system for detoxifying and rejuvenating the internal organs:

  • Presents techniques to clear blockages in the body’s energy flow
  • Includes illustrated exercises to relieve common ailments, revitalize the organs, and enable readers to take charge of their own health and well-being
  • Focuses on the navel center, where negative emotions, stress, and illness accumulate

The techniques of Chi Nei Tsang evolved in Asia during an era when few physicians were available and people had to know how to heal themselves. Many people today have symptoms that modern medicine is not able to cure because a physical source for the problem is not easily found. The energies of negative emotions, stress, and tension--all common in modern life--and the weight of past illness accumulate in the abdominal center, causing energy blockages and congestion. When this occurs, all vital functions stagnate and myriad problems arise. By practicing the techniques of Chi Nei Tsang, this stagnation is removed and the vital organs surrounding the navel center are detoxified and rejuvenated.

Master Chia teaches readers how to avoid absorbing negative energies from others and take full charge of their health through the self-healing techniques of Chi Nei Tsang. He offers fully illustrated exercises that show how to detoxify the internal organs and clear the energy (chi) channels throughout the body. He also presents methods for balancing emotions, managing stress, and observing the body in order to recognize, ameliorate, and prevent maladies before they become a problem.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi Chi Kung I

The Inner Structure Of Tai Chi

Explores the deep, internal work necessary for the effective practice of tai ch:

  • Reveals the Taoist principles that gave birth to the Yang-style tai chi forms
  • Shows how tai chi can circulate powerful healing energies through the body

Taoist adepts developed tai chi as both a martial art and a way to cultivate their physical body, energy body, and spirit body. Like all Taoist exercises, its main purpose is to form a connection to the basic energy that is the foundation of all life: chi. Until the beginning of the twentieth century, tai chi was considered a secret practice that was passed down only within a closely knit structure of family and loyal disciples. Despite its widespread growth in popularity as a martial art and health exercise, many of its underlying internal practices remain unknown.

The Inner Structure of Tai Chi explores the deep, internal work necessary for the effective practice of tai chi. Designed for practitioners at every level, the book contains step-by-step illustrated instructions for mastering the 13 forms of early Yang-style tai chi, also known as Tai Chi Chi Kung. The authors demonstrate the relationship of the inner structure of tai chi to the absorption, transformation, and circulation of the three forces that animate all life--the Universal force, the Cosmic force, and the Earth force--revealing the principles and practices necessary to receive the full spectrum of physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits that tai chi can bring.

 



Tai Chi Chi Kung II

(Discharge Form)(Tai Chi Fa Jin)



Advanced Techniques for Discharging Chi Energy

A guide to the seemingly effortless yet explosively powerful martial art techniques of Fa Jin:

  • Explains how to collect energy within and discharge it for self-defense as well as healing
  • Explores how to counter the natural instinct to resist force with force and develop yielding softness through the 13 Original Movements of Tai Chi
  • Illustrates routines for the partner practice of “Push Hands” (Tui Shou)

Fa Jin, an advanced yang style of Tai Chi, complements the physical, mental, and spiritual conditioning available through solo Tai Chi practice and the internal martial arts of Taoism. Fa Jin enables adepts to harness the energy of yin, yang, and the earth in the lower tan tien and discharge it as an extremely close-range yet explosively powerful blow in self-defense and partner practice as well as in healing techniques.

Integrating the teachings of many Taoist masters, including Chang San-Feng, the creator of Tai Chi; Wang Tsung-Yueh, the legendary 19th-century master; Bruce Lee, the actor and martial artist who made the “one-inch punch” technique famous; and the Magus of Java, a living master able to discharge energy in the form of electric shocks, this book explores the history, philosophy, internal exercises, and physical practices of Fa Jin. Drawing on Iron Shirt Chi Kung and Tan Tien Chi Kung techniques, Master Mantak Chia and Andrew Jan reveal the secrets to collecting yin and yang in the lower tan tien and discharging the energy in a seemingly effortless yet explosive blow. Illustrating several routines of the Tai Chi partner practice of “Push Hands” (Tui Shou), they explain how to apply Fa Jin techniques by “listening” to your opponent’s intentions and countering the natural instinct to resist force with force through yielding softness and redirection. The authors also detail how to prepare for this advanced practice through stretching, meditation, breathing, relaxation, and energetic exercises.
