WITH CHRISTINE HARKNESS-GILES
Co-author of Mantak Chia's books on Inner Alchemy Astrology
in English and French
How can we make the Taoist practices more pertinent to us and our lives? Master Chia has developed Inner Alchemy Astrology so we can see our own 5-Element make-up. Using this we can then work on balancing the elements and finding more harmony in our lives. Particularly useful with the Basic practices of Inner Smile Meditation, 6 Healing Sounds and the Fusion of the Five Elements Meditations.
Classes in Normandy and Online, in French and English
Dates for 'physical class in Normandy will be confirmed when we think it is possible to hold them.
On-Line Instructor Training - Inner Alchemy Astrology 2021
Special Session 30th January - Instructor Basics
31st January - continues with the rest of Level 1
30th January is a special session as you can do only 30th January as an 'entry level' IAA or do both 30th & 31st January as Level 1, with some back-up chart reading experience.
IAA Level 1 is part of Certified Instructor Training, as it brings deeper understanding of the 5 elements, the core of Taoism. Studying a student’s chart, or your own, gives caluable insights of how to balance the energies in the chart, using UHT practices.
The practices will help reduce energy and emotional excesses and boost deficiencies, bringing in emotional and physical improvements.
There is no evaluation for Level 1, but as part of the UHT system, you might like to continue to study Level 2 & 3, do the case studies and to certify as IAA Chart Reader (IACR).

The five elements and yin and yang are the building blocks of the Universe and are at the heart of understanding Taoism.
Deepen your understanding of Taoism and apply Inner Alchemy practices to yourself more accurately by looking at your own 5-element make-up. Look at the energy you were born with and the energy cycles you are in at this moment with Inner Alchemy Astrology. Understand and learn from past events and choices, visualise incoming energies and prepare for future choices.
Master Chia has spent much time setting up this Taoist Astrology (Chinese Astrology) programme so you can understand your birth energies in terms of the five elements.
Dynamic energy cycles bring different forces into your life over the years too. 2019 was Earth Pig year - until 4th Feb 2020, and 2020 is Metal Rat year. (Yang Metal is heaven stem energy, Rat is branch earth energy, made up for water).
What ARE the 5 elements? They are 5 energies which have been referred to in Chinese as ‘5 energies which act like 5 elements’ for over 5,000 years. This term is usually shortened to ‘5 elements’. As they are energies, these elements forge our character and the way we live. We could have lots of energy for one activity, but little for another.
Taoist inner alchemy practices and body-work treatments are based on harmonising these elements within us to transform our negative energies into vitality and heal our minds and bodies.
Your own 5 elements make-up: see who you are and why? Your strengths and weaknesses, highs and lows. Mantak Chia has spent 40 years developing his own Inner Alchemy Astrology programme, traditional Chinese Astrology calculations with easy interpretation, what the elements mean, and learn meditations and chi kung to enhance them specifically. You will be able to print out your Inner Alchemy Astrology chart from the given link to bring along to the workshop.
Understand how the 5 elements affect our body and learn helpful techniques related specifically to our major organ and body systems and particularly to our sympathetic and parasympathetic systems.
