We have long been in awe of the amazing work done by Universal Healing Tao Ireland. The Universal Healing Tao – derived from ancient Chinese healing practices – is a practical system of self-development which can help you to increase your vitality, release stress, balance your emotions and discover your true nature. Universal Healing Tao Ireland is the primary centre for sharing the Taoist practices of Grandmaster Mantak Chia in Ireland. Máire Ní G shared her experiences of working with him in our Spring 2020 issue – read on to learn what she had to say!
It was a real pleasure to meet you at Positive Nights yesterday and to share a few things of common interest. I just wanted to emphasise that the practices we talked about together are especially beneficial for managing stress and maintaining good health: when we are in good health we have the choice of how to spend our time. When we are ill, well, we have to make the time for that – we have no choice at all. Steve Jobs wisely observed that however much we might have in the bank, we cannot pay someone to be ill for us!
So I want to emphasis how, in my own case, these practices have kept me in optimum health since I started doing them, and this is why I constantly urge everyone – as you probably noticed! – to make the choice of investing the time to learn this wonderful stuff properly so you can manage your energy and not lose it wastefully.
If you would like to learn more about the male Taoist Practice then please do come by my free talk tomorrow, 7.30 to 9 pm at the Holistic Centre of Ireland.

Life Starts & Ends in Bed
By Kris Deva North and Anamarta
“If you want to understand the business of life, then you need to examine the business of where life starts and where life ends…the business of the bedchamber.” – Taoist Classics: Art of the Bedchamber.
The Taoists of ancient China considered sex healthy, fun and serious business. Four thousand years before Masters and Johnson, they observed how some of us become aroused quickly, others more slowly. So they developed secret practices to harmonise the different cycles of arousal, to enjoy longer and more pleasurable sexual encounters, and all without losing energy; for everyone to become a more effective lover.
Like us, in our modern world and its stress, they were aware that you don’t want to create life whenever you have sex. While those wise old sages may not have heard that women are born with between four hundred and six hundred eggs, or men create enough sperm to repopulate North America with a single ejaculation, they did understand how, by avoiding energy loss, we can divert this power to enhance our own life, to create, and live to the full, the life we want.
Taoist holistic practice engages the mind, body and spirit to reflect the harmony of our inner universe in the outer world. Merging qigong, meditation, sexual and shamanic practice, by channeling through the Microcosmic Orbit, we learn to project the most powerful energy of creation, to attain goals, realise dreams; even for spiritual development, to come by the short path to enlightenment, in and out of bed.
