„Practice is the Key“ - Teaching is his Passion
Mantak Chia is Author of more than 60 books published in many languages around the world, and he was twice named Qi Gong Master of the Year. Since childhood, Mantak Chia has been studying the Taoist approach to life. His mastery of this ancient knowledge enhanced by his study of other disciplines such as Yoga, Tai Chi and Kung Fu as well as Buddhist and Zen teachings. This has resulted in the development of the Universal Healing Tao© System which is now being taught throughout the world.
Based on thousands of years of knowledge, combined with the findings of modern science, Grandmaster Chia has developed the Universal Healing Tao© as a practical system for self-cultivation and spiritual development.
Mantak Chia is one of only a few Tao Masters who made the ancient exercises and techniques assigned to him by Chinese masters and teachers accessible to everyone interested throughout the world. By studying the exercises and techniques of the Universal Healing Tao© one can establish a personal responsibility for their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Detoxing, reducing stress, up to the highest levels of meditation are only a few examples of the diversity of the holistic approach of the Universal Tao System.
Already in his 70s, Master Chia opened a school in New York and began teaching in the United States. His popularity grew rapidly, as did the number of his students, and by the end of the 1980s Grandmaster Chia began teaching in Europe. Since that time, Mantak Chia regularly visits metropolises throughout Europe and teaches the Universal Healing Tao© there on a regular basis.
At the latest with the beginning of his annual world tour in the nineties, Master Chia is traveling around the globe to teach the Universal Healing Tao© to interested and advanced students. From North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia, in the course of his more than 45 years as a teacher, Mantak Chia has taught tens of thousands of students and certified more than two thousand 'Universal Healing Tao© Instructors'.
