Taoist Internal Alchemy
Internal Alchemy is a specific part of Qigong that is conducted as an active internal meditation. The first step on this profound and ancient path is to open and activate your internal subtle energy channels (meridians) and cleanse your major internal organs with breath and sound. Each organ is associated with an element – the fusion of these elements creates the conditions for radiant health and inner transformation. One really useful application for internal alchemy is utilising sexual energy for strength, fitness and endurance. This is primarily a breathing exercise by where you cultivate the energy in the ovaries or testicles and then absorb through the spine, major organs and rest of the body.
