Energy Work or Chi Kung
Energy work or Chi Kung means the same thing. These practices are going to show you how to transform your negative energy into positive vitality. These practices will show you the power of a smile, and that your mind has been creating your radiant or ill-health this whole time. These practices are also going to show you how to circulate and refine your energy so you don't get stuck. And lastly, we're going to learn how to store your energy so that you can keep it for longevity, radiance, and vitality. So, let's get started with our foundational practice.

The Inner Smile Practice
The Inner Smile practice is so simple, that I’m doing it right now in this video. I’ve just smiled to my heart. It’s a very simple practice. Children do it, and it is the foundation of Taoist transformational practices. In this practice you will learn how not to use any religious or spiritual thoughts. Just simply use the power of your mind and a smile to improve the functions of your heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, spleen, and pancreas. You will also begin the journey of learning how to balance your emotions. No pills. No counseling. Just simple smiling and breathing and it works. So, why wait? Step One: The Inner Smile Practice.
The Six Healing Sounds Practice
Now it’s time to take your Inner Smile Practice to the next level. What you started to do with your Inner Smile was to transform your negative energy into positive vitality. You did this inner alchemy in very specific parts of your body. With the Six Healing Sounds Practice, you will now learn postures that are going to stretch the acupuncture meridians and take your practice to the next level. You will feel the sounds as you exhale vibrating the organs. Let’s take this magic step and get started immediately.
The Six Healing Sounds / Inner Smile Combined Practice
When I was taught the Six Healing Sounds Inner Smile Practices I actually learned them as one practice. What you’re about to see here is that practice. I want to encourage you to make this your own. I see the value in separating the Six Healing Sounds, but I also see the value in hurrying up a little bit and just putting this together as one practice. By the way, if you really want to finish your practice and do one large practice, finish it off with the Microcosmic Orbit and you have a wonderful daily practice. Have fun in watching my way of Six Healing Sounds Inner Smile Meditation and don’t forget to finish off with your Microcosmic Orbit.
The Microcosmic Orbit Practice
Our Six Healing Sounds Inner Smile practices taught us how to transform our negative energy into positive vitality. Our Microcosmic Orbit meditation will now teach us how to take that energy, circulate and refine it, and store it for later use. It is a primary and most basic practice and will be used in almost everything else that you do, especially your sexual practice. Have a great time.
Vinyasa Yoga practice with Daniel Overberger
Recorded live at Runyon Canyon in Hollywood, California. This lesson includes sun salutations, a strong standing series and finishes with seated stretching and relaxation.
Master Chia suggests Yoga and Tai Chi for a well rounded physical program. While in California, I attended Daniel Overberger's famous outdoor class in Runyon Canyon. So many people adore the teachings of this man, and now I see why. He has a refreshing sense of humor and his compassion radiates. Without hurting myself, I was able to gently activate muscles that had stiffened on the long flight to LA and improve the quality of my trip.
Daniel is dynamic, aware and educated. In this one hour session, he guides us through a healthy and safe Yoga practice that is very different than what most of us have tried. So, get ready to smile, tone your body and mind, and ENJOY.
