9 Major Benefits of Fusion 2 & 3 Audio
To make deep changes in your self or advances in your life, whether for healing or spiritual evolution, you need a deep understanding of who you are. Fusion 2 & 3 maps out the deep core channels that form the structure of our Energy Body, the matrix that underlies our physical body-mind. This knowledge, when combined with Fusion 1, offers extremely powerful tools for exploring your self and the creative process of life itself.
Additional notes on Fusion:
Get the package? I recommend you get the 16 CD audio Fusion #1 and #2 & 3 together with the DVD. If you can afford it, you save on shipping and get a discount. The three fusion practices mesh with each other like a hand in a glove. Once you learn Fusion 1, it will be useful to have Fusion 2/3 at hand when you are ready for it.
Fusion 1 focuses on awakening the 5 vital organ spirits, Fusion 2/3 activates the 8 deep energy channels that the 5 organ spirits regulate. The package includes the 8 Extraordinary Vessels Qigong DVD, mainly used for Fusion #2 & 3.
The DVD has three qigong forms on it, including the Nourish the Five Body Spirits Qigong (renamed “Spiral Love in Creation Cycle Qigong) taught in Fusion #1. This qigong form is described in the Fusion 1 audio, and its simple enough to get from the audio plus handout, but its always easier to learn from the video.
Which to train first – Fusion or Healing Love? Fusion practices pave the wave for sexual energy cultivation of Healing Love, which regulates outer sexual desires and sex functioning. Our sexual drive is infused with many incomplete feelings. By completing those feelings internally with Fusion, we can then make conscious and manage what is purely sexual. Fusion is thus essential preparation for learning the inner sexual alchemy of the Kan and Li formulas – the copulation of one’s inner male and inner female energies.
Many people – men especially – tend to skip Fusion and race ahead directly to the sexual practices. But mastery of “sexual kung-fu” will be limited if you do not also master your emotions. It is easier to master your emotions when they are not inflamed with sexual passion. Fusion will be truly liberating for many women who feel controlled by strong emotion or overwhelmed by their sensitivity of feeling. Sexual issues for them will come into clear focus once the emotional aspects have been separated out and dissolved.
Fusion & Martial Arts: Fusion practices are central to developing a functional internal “energy body” or “chi body”. Without it, your energy body may lack a true center. There is a danger of developing too much chi through external movement practice. Fusion practices are thus helpful to martial artists, who tend to bypass emotional development while seeking power over others. Fusion offers a way to refine and integrate the emotional chi, and ensure it is expressed virtuously.
Summer retreat rebate: If you buy the homestudy course and later take the Fusion summer retreat within the year, you get half your money back. Note: Normally this rebate only applies to courses I teach. I do not teach the Fusion summer course, so be prepared for a somewhat different version, each teacher has their own style. I accept the Fusion 1-3 home study course as completing pre-requisites for live study of Lesser Kan & Li retreats.
Buy the Fusion book? Mantak Chia’s Fusion book is useful, but not necessary. Its very difficult to learn these practices well from a book, which is why “oral transmission” is always emphasized in the Taoist tradition. My home study course includes detailed handouts with the most essential illustrations from the book. Of the 9 formulas in Chia’s book only the first 4 are part of the original Fusion 1 practice. The last 5 formulas in the book are fragments borrowed from the higher kan and li formulas (and were published over my strenuous editorial objection).
I personally recommend you do NOT skip ahead to those fragmentary formulas 5 through 9 in the Fusion book. One Cloud’s seven Tao Formulas for Achieving Immortality are a progressive training. It’s a mistake to absorb chi from the 5 planets before you have learned to manage even your basic emotions. The personal emotions just get overshadowed and buried deeper in your unconscious. Read my article on “Clearing the Confusion Over Fusion” in articles section.
I have evolved the Fusion practices I learned from Mantak Chia. I’ve integrated into my Fusion practice other aspects of Taoist alchemy that fit well with Western psychology. For example, Chia does not work directly with the Five Shen (vital organs spirits), only with their chi. I made these changes to meet the needs of the different emotional nature of Westerners, whose energy bodies are quite different from those of the Chinese.
Time Frame: Fusion 1 should be progressively learned for 100 days AFTER the Qigong Fundamentals 1 & 2 (minimum), and preferably after Qigong Fundamentals 3 & 4 for extra grounding. Fusion 1 trains one in the art of “emotional grounding”, and if you are not solidly in your body, its harder to ground your emotional body.
Once you’ve got a good grasp of Fusion 1, the Fusion 2/3 practices become much easier and can be learned quickly. But still allow yourself another 100 days to fully integrate the practice, especially the grounding belt channels and spiral into the earth. Many people find the Fusion 2/3 practices greatly strengthen the Fusion 1 practice. But you still need to learn Fusion 1 first, to plant the seeds of its own further development.
Each individual progresses at a unique pace. Time frame may be affected by personal nature, health issues, your openness to subtle energy, and amount of time spent practicing. Those who take a Healing Tao retreat or workshop, with its live transmission, may progress much faster. Live work with a group adds momentum to your chi experience.
The rule of thumb is to experiment with a new method until you feel you “own the practice’. This means the chi flow of that practice is inside you, you can tap it anytime, it feels comfortable and familiar. It’s become a tool, you can use it when needed.
You do NOT need to “master” or “perfect” these practices before learning the next course – which in my sequence is either Healing Love or Lesser Kan & Li. Just as the “self” is a fluid process, “self-mastery” is a continuous, lifelong process. Please, don’t use “lack of mastery” as an excuse not to try the next method.
I am still in process of mastering these practices – after 25 years! No matter how advanced you become, life will continually serve up new challenges to whatever level of clarity of feeling you’ve achieved.

Praise for Michael Winn's "Tai Chi for Enlightenment"
Now I Can Download Love, Trust, Courage, Wisdom, & Kindness from the Universe!
Profound thanks for the great, great Fusion 1-3 workshops. I thought they were taught at such an astonishingly deep level and am grateful for your ability to teach it with such respect for where each of us are.
Fusion has opened so much for me, it's difficult to describe. I feel I have long needed tools to deal with energy arising inside and energy projected at me from others. In prior years, they have knocked me far off my center.
In Fusion #1 workshop I noticed as I expanded the earth shen/pearl to embrace each of the other pearls, they began to reveal bits of them self. I began to get some sense of the depth and age of the blue, kidney shen, the exhilaration, delicacy, and energy of the green liver shen and, to me the overwhelming power of the heart spirit. As the heart shen began to open and reveal the power of real love, I had to stop, not seemingly ready to accept a full glimpse.
I am again on "speaking terms" with my lung shen. I greatly benefit from "downloading" trust, love, courage, kindness, and wisdom from the universe when I need it. I didn't know there was such bounty and generosity surrounding us.
Periodically, I have experienced an "opening" of my consciousness in which I am able to take in and sit and embrace the opposites in my life. This has taken me to places of great quiet and peace, a feeling that in Taoist terms might be balanced or harmonious. Some of the fun has been that everything seems lightly balanced, and susceptible to falling to one side or the other, yet has stayed with me through a variety of stressful stimuli. Perhaps it is not so fragile.
I look forward to studying the higher alchemy formulas, realizing how little I know.
Thanks again – you have my greatest respect as a teacher. It is a privilege to have been in your Fusion classes. I know you were carrying the energetic burden of the entire group, and yet you were able to lead the class so beautifully.

Shocked and astonished at how powerful Fusion process is!
I have been shocked and astonished at how powerful this Fusion process is! Shocked – at how much “stuff” that I thought was resolved, but it all came floating back up to the surface during my first Fusion meditation. Some painful old relationships that I thought were buried were still haunting me. They were probably responsible for an undefinable sense of anxiety I’ve been suffering from for years.
I am Astonished at how quickly these deep issues are being resolved. After only a few days of practice I feel so much clearer and more peaceful. I know there is more to go, but thank you and the Tao so much for giving me the tools I needed to go into these hurtful areas of my life. Thanks from the depth of my Heart!

Fusion Got Me Through A Big Emotional Test
The situation: a customer of mine called to complain about my wallpaper job. She railed about my incompetence, compared me to her dead father, who 'expertly' hung paper. She wanted to meet me at a model house to show me 'how much better another job was, compared to mine'. Oy!
Ironically, this wallpaper job was completed on the very day I left for Fusion 1 last month, and it’s the first complaint I met up with upon my return.
Inner process: I moved from panic and fear at getting caught at a mistake, to self righteous 'how dare you' anger, to worry at my reputation, and finally doubt of my own integrity. As the meeting date with the woman got closer, the thought of it made my stomach churn with adrenaline and fear.
How Fusion helped: Before the meeting, I brought this situation into my vital organ shen/pearls. I let myself really feel the shaking of fear in my kidneys and the fire of my anger in the liver. It brought up memories of my parents, authority issues, and my tendency to hide emotions from others and boil them inside. I would balance and dissolve these feelings in my perfect fusion weather system. But still, when the time came closer, fear and apprehension, a feeling like stage fright, ruled.
On the day of the meeting: I had a tape of fusion playing in my car and heard one sentence that drilled into me. The 'Po' lung soul is the one we meet the world with. It is constantly required to breathe in the energy of life, to embrace the outer world. I enlarged that pearl of white light and a feeling of peace ran over me. I was in neutral by the time I met the woman.
I explained my choices in doing the job, after assuring her I understood hers. I smiled at her, inner and out smile at the same time. Amazingly, she just let it go. "Thanks," she said," I just wanted to understand why you did it that way. SO much has gone wrong in that house. Now I see what you did and we'll just move on."
How I relate Fusion to my life: It struck me how I frequently have intense inner emotions and fights and talks going on inside. Yet due to protective instincts of my past, I have hidden them from a full expression with others or denied full feelings inside – I was worried about self image. Emotions run hot under my skin surface like volcanic magma waiting for an explosion, or more likely an implosion. My team of Lung souls were hanging around my aura, separated out of body because of this pattern: emotionally stuck ghosts of myself awaiting embodiment and expression in relationship.
My Fusion practice this morning: Strongly guided me to soften into my white pearl souls. My breath feels more connected to my core. I’ve added another layer of bonding between the many fragmented selves in my personality. There is a deeper recognition of these essence aspects in my core being. I can feel that collectively we really desire to achieve a new balance in the world out/in there.
Thanks to Fusion, we are creating that world of harmony and balance, one breath at a time.

Fusion Opened Up A Battle With My Shadow
I started fusion of the five elements this week using your audio tapes. First, I discovered that my heart was very arrogant and did not want to join the dance at first. It felt it was superior to the other shen. It wanted to be separate – the only way it could maintain its sense of superiority over the other organ spirits.
My feel was the fire spirit had compensated for past trauma to the earth and metal spirits. It was taking over some of their work, or trying to at least. Thus it felt it couldn't trust the others. It considered them to be worthless; it resented their weakness. I'm betting that just made the others even weaker.
I also had a powerful experience during the inner weather meditation. I encountered my Shadow. I wasn't hallucinating, it was similar to a dream, but was a vision. I was wide awake, the vision continued whether my eyes were open or closed.
The vision began: I sat down against a tree in the forest. The Shadow appeared and attacked me. I fought briefly with him and then stopped. I stood still as he thrust a claymore sword into my solar plexus. I fell to the ground, dying. Then I pulled the sword from my body and held it in my hand. My hand sent fire into the sword and it burst into flame, and then dissolved. I attacked my shadow with extreme ferocity, fire burning in my body. I struck him again and again.
Shadow then brandished a double-headed axe and swung it vigorously. I used the heavy weight of the axe to my advantage, throwing his body weight significantly with each swing. I fell to the ground and placed a kick to the back of his knee. As he fell I struck the jade pillow point at the back of his head. I hit it several more times after he had fallen. Fire poured from my hands, and I placed them on the jade pillow. My heart fire entered the shadow body, burning demonic looking creatures that hid within.
Shadow was now lying face up, my hands burning into his third eye. I began to move my hands to his heart. He began to struggle, writhing about trying to escape my hold. Knives appeared and fell into his hands and feet, pinning him. He still struggled. My resolve increased and I plunged my burning hands into his chest with increased power. (My solar plexus feels strange during all of this, it was somewhat painful.)
I then see myself with white hair and white clothing – the color of the metal element - swirled with black. I hold a staff of the same colors, with a spinning yin-yang at its head. I plunge the staff into the shadow self's solar plexus. I see many creatures I considered demons. Some are beautiful. Lucifer is the name of the energy. It says we are one. My power is your power. I am you. I feel an immense energy welling up from my solar plexus, filling my whole body, my third eye especially.
I then lose my resolve to vanquish the shadow, and it jumps up. It then leaps into my body. I fall to the ground. Darkness and light dance in many different ways. I see swirls of white and black, mixing, almost playing. I then see little angels above, and "demons" below. I realized that the demons were not demons, save for the negative charge I gave them.
I then asked for assistance of all beings that had my highest interest in mind. Little fairy-like creatures came and began to sew a glowing web over my solar plexus. I asked that they continue to work even after I shifted my focus away. My feel was that earth elemental beings would come to work on the hole within my solar plexus after the web was complete. I then finished the fusion of the five elements meditation, feeling balanced and complete.
