Welcome to Primordial Alchemist

Primordial Alchemist has become a leading spiritual development school teaching tens of thousands of students from every walk of life to re-discover their true hidden potential not experienced in other systems.

The “water path” – the celestial way of Taoism – has lead the field in helping others reach their goals of spiritual realization and has changed the world in passing on once hidden knowledge to the masses in an old traditional manner of the master to student transmission of once hidden truths, and were only practiced in remote temples of the east.

All people from all walks of life have had direct mind experiences through the water path of Taoism, and their lives have been changed in so many ways that are too many to describe.

We continue to passionately teach, promote, and hold the standards of teachings as outlined in those lineage masters of the ancient past, the reason why this art has become so well known and successful to all who devote to this authentic path. Learn More

Kidney Regeneration

In all spiritual traditions, any practitioner who does high-level energy cultivation knows the kidneys’ great importance.

Kidney energy is directly correlated to the Water Element. They are the key to Life Force Essence and are the basis for health, preservation, and regeneration. Our kidneys can weaken with age, chronic stress, fear, excessive emotion, and isolation. Keeping our kidneys strong and balanced is a vital element in spiritual cultivation as well as a long and healthy life.

In our particular tradition, based on the season, there are specific methods to keep the kidneys at full strength, especially. If one is doing a long sitting retreat, that can put stress on this vital organ.

In this class, we will discuss the do’s and don’ts of specific methods to ensure our kidneys are in excellent condition, which in turn fuels the body, brain, and nervous system to aid us towards our spiritual goal.

The methods to be explained will go over age, season, massage, and various meditative ways to protect and revitalize our power supply within our body.

Let us begin to explore the path of self-regeneration through traditional methods that will change both the internal and external world on the path inwards toward the Tao, the great mystery.

When: July 18th, 11am to 2pm Pacific Time
Tuition: $300

Self Mastery 2 Day Event

Welcome to our 2-day event!

This two day event can be taken as a 2 day class or as a retreat depending on what you have time for. We have designed a layout for you that you will receive upon registration where you can pick and chose how you want your two days to go.  Creating your own custom weekend.  

Develop self-mastery through the subtle awareness of the heart-mind connection. These practices are an essential part of awakening, as told by past masters who understood this simple secret.

This 2 Day intensive workshop works in connection with the Heart Sutra to overcome your limitations and limiting beliefs.

Reciting sacred mantras like the Heart Sutra is an age-old means of penetrating the great mysteries within yourself. As you continue with this way of daily meditation, it will awaken your mind secrets.

Golden Buddha Meditations used with the Heart Sutra are unified into one simple practice, which will connect with the purified energy channels resulting in a subtle awakening of body, mind, and spirit.

Great spiritual masters of the past understood the importance of personal practice, and through continued meditation on their cultivation methods, illumination of the mind would appear.

Golden Buddha light meditation

A form of point gazing

This Buddhist form of meditation will teach you how to use light outside yourself to awaken the clear light of the middle dantian through the katika channel.

You can use the golden light meditation with a mantra to manifest the subtle awakening of the clear light when the heart sutra is mentally recited at the same time. Each practice taught amplifies the effects of the other.

This way of cultivation is perfect for the silent retreat of three, six, or nine days when done in stillness sitting at home or in the forest.

9 Breath of the Golden Buddha

This Tibetan purification practice is essential in cleansing and clearing the three main energy channels used in the Tibetan yogic tradition. Its primary purpose is to clear the channels of mind pollution created by the mundane mind of polarity.

Visualization and mental focus, and posture will be taught so that we as cultivators can use the clear light and the clear heart-mind when reciting a mantra or any other method in which clear energy channels.

There are variations of the 9-breath method based on tradition and teachers, but the end result is the same. We will use our specific style of practice to assist us in quickly getting the desired results.

The 9-breaths of the golden buddha are used to enhance the Heart Sutra mantra’s effectiveness and amplify any other Buddhist cultivation that you may be doing.

Plus 

Mindfulness training on the art of forgiving and accepting.

Date: April 17th & 18th

Time: 10am-5:30pm PST,  w/lunch break – Zoom Room will open at 10am with Ijong training, class begins at 11am

Self Mastery

Ask yourself this question, what is the importance of self-mastery to you in both the mundane and spiritual worlds.

Whatever path you have chosen to travel, it is important to have the proper physical and mental focus towards this goal that all beings eventually must travel.

One cannot perfect themself unless one commits fully to any goal in life. The mind and consciousness, meaning the mind of polarity and clear light mind of non-polarity, must be unified as one. The ego of attachment and grasping must be dissolved.

If you have a goal, there should not be an “if, and, but or maybe” state of mind instead of using the positive, virtuous mind of “do” or “do not.”

It is important to see the end result of the goal and not thinking when or how I should attain the desired goal, be it awakening or happy mundane life.

Self-mastery removes the “inherited” or self-limited thoughts to bring the result you seek in the shortest possible time.  You will realize it does not have to be such a personal battle for this state to occur.

The Experience of Self-Mastery

When you attain the level of self-mastery, the world will be looked upon differently. This reflection means you will feel and experience what the illusions are that have been self-created or inherited from generations before you. We inherit mind and belief system that are not our own. 

When a person on the true path walks this journey, there are many tests one has to experience directly. You will overcome those tests because it’s the fears, doubts, negative mindsets, and five elements within you that must come back into balance with the Tao.

This path can suddenly or slowly reveal our own true nature allowing us to experience our true state while in this physical body. When this occurs, our practices reveal their hidden root or essence within our mind and body. In this moment some form of illumination occurs.

Remember, even if you have these experiences of a perfect mind, it will come and go. We must continue to “live” our cultivation and not just practice here or there.

Living Your Art – Not Just Practicing Your Art

Practice is why comprehending the heart sutra helps us on this special road leading to our hidden truths.

I like this saying that might explain the illumination and importance of self- mastery.

Tea, in the beginning, is just tea, but when mastered, the tea becomes the heavenly jade elixir. Then after this illumination, we will experience tea as just tea.

Max Christensen

This may help you also understand that you should see and treat the spiritual aspect of your life as a mundane yet natural way of living in self-mastery. Reflect also on seeing the everyday mundane world as a profoundly spiritual experience, thereby starting our monkey mind’s dissolving process.

Why do this, you may ask?

Combining the mental polarity of separation and bringing forth the opposites into non-duality also does the same thing to the energetic channels within our illuminated dragon body.

When we either go from mental awareness first by developing the non-polarity vision, the body will collapse the polarity channels. If we do this awareness training through the physical level first, it will affect the mental state, “as above, so below.”

Here you have our basic principles that will lead you towards the path of self-mastery. Remember, each tradition has different means based on the goals they seek to perfect within themself.  Step up to the task towards self-awakening and perfection with a smile and a laugh. Self-mastery is important but does not need to be rigid.

“Your human body is a miracle of the universe with the great mysteries housed within it. You are the universe. You are the essence of living light, slowed down into the physical manifestation of frozen light. When we do our practices, we are speeding ourselves back up into the sacred vibration of truth, even beyond the speed of light, and in the process we remember who and what we truly are and what we came here to do.”
