- open to all - for students who wish to become an Instructor or not.

Retreat in your own living room​ (in English).


Senior Instructor Level 2 Luc Leyton is doing another on-line evaluation class with us on 16th - 18th July 2021 and will be teaching and evaluating, so your Tao teaching career can start.

The class is in English and French and Luc also speaks Dutch. and on ZOOM

To become an Associate Instructor you need a minimum of 6 months Tao practice and to promote from Associate Instructor to Certified Instructor you need 6 months of Associate class experience. So this July class is open to students wishing to become either Associate or Certified Instructors, who have done the Instructor Retreat with Master Chia. It is with Senior Level 2 Instructor Luc Leyton's certifying team and is in English and French. (If restrictions are lifted this can take place in Normandy with ZOOM link from the room where it happens)

To Become an Associate Instructor it is important to start sharing the practices; if you have done the pre-requisite hours, get in touch with us if you are not sure to qualify. UHT has had to change the rules but also the rules are adapted to also take in the many people who have been following the Tao for some time, but who might not have been aiming at instructor training before the world went zoom.  It is essential to have done some studying recently and for upgrading to Certified Instructor at least 4 days with Master Chia (on-line is fine) But classes with other instructors count, and if you have done some self-study, let us know about that too. There are non-compulsory case studies to become an AI, ask us for an example as they are useful as a focus to your lessons. There are also case studies to upgrade to CI, but NOT compulsory if you were already an AI before 'covid' changed things. It is not necessary to have done the recent on-line instructor training if other conditions apply to you, so please ask us.

Prices:  390€ for 3 days class.    (+35€ certification costs for successful candidates)

( - 10% for Associate Instructors*, full time students or job seekers) 

Extra evaluations will be possible after class everyday, get in touch with if you are already an instructor and want to upgrade on a practice.

Online Live Streaming is the new avenue of learning and connecting. Master Chia has already shared many of his teachings online and students have reported feeling energy as they practice, even having their mid-eyebrow open and feeling chi circulate in their microcosmic orbit.


This online global seminar will be live with Master Mantak Chia teaching from Tao Garden and streaming to you in your own home using the platform Zoom. There will be an opportunity to interact and ask questions.


You will be able to follow the class as if you are in the room with him. There will be recordings available afterwards if you are not available for the class times. However, as best you can try to organise your day to the arranged times, as it will help to raise the chi around the planet. We will practice and meditate together. This seminar is structured in a coherent way to guide you layer by layer through the Tao practice.

Master Chia regularly updates his teachings; the basic Taoist practices taught in this year’s winter retreat have advanced from what he taught a few years ago. His meditations and own personal practices have constantly inspired him to present techniques differently and in these classes you will receive the latest version.


Re-source yourself especially in this time of uncertainty and challenge that we are now living in. The Primordial & Cosmic Energy is all around you, you just need to learn how to draw that energy in to build internal chi and support yourself.

It seems that the Universe is pushing us towards on-line learning, so get going with the basic Taoist practices now.

Fusion 1

The Fusion of the 5 Elements Meditation is the next step on the path of Taoist meditation. A traditional Taoist internal alchemy practice, you will learn to take your transformation of negative emotions to the next level to nourish your higher spirit.
Learn to:

  • Go deeper into the negative emotional energies in your organs

  • Understand your internal weather patterns

  • Link your sense organs with their “mother” organs

  • Neutralize the negative emotions

  • Crystalize your emotional energy into a “pearl”

  • Circulate this energy and attract more healing energy from high frequency sources 


This is an essential practice for emotional balance in these challenging times.
Prerequisite: Awaken Healing Light or equivalent


Fusion of the 5 Elements II & III

We step it up in Fusion 2 & 3 and begin intensive cultivation of our natural virtues – the Te (or De) spoken of in the Tao Te Ching. With the compassion that we develop, we can open up deeper channels in the body and prepare ourselves energetically for further spiritual and alchemical practices like the Darkroom Experience.  These meditation practices can strengthen us on all levels.  

You will learn to:

  • Create the Pearl of Compassion

  • Open the remaining Extraordinary Vessels that irrigate and regulate the body’s energy (Thrusting, Belt, and Bridge and Regulator Channels)

  • Create powerful psychic self-protection methods

  • Prevent burnout

  • Protect the nervous system, spine, & brain

  • Safeguard your auric field.   


The body is now extremely open to chi circulation with the energetic infrastructure in place for further energy work. 

Prerequisite:  Fusion I
