THE 6 HEALING SOUNDS

 

This exercise will take you about 15 min. It is called the 6 Healing Sounds. This a Chi Kung internal Chinese energetic practice based on the 5 Element Theory, which regulates Chinese medicine. I learned this basic active meditation with Taoist master Mantak Chia in 1996. If you practice this simple exercise you will get in touch with your organs, which regulated body and emotional balance.
