The Work of Master Mantak Chia
A conversation with Ronnie Robinson & Bob Lowey
Grandmaster Mantak Chia, who was born in Thailand in 1944 was initiated into meditation practices by Buddhist monks at the age of 6. While studying in Hong Kong he learned Tai Chi Chuan, Aikido and Kundalini Yoga. His pursuit of Taoist teachings led him to meet the White Cloud Hermit, a Taoist Master, originally from Central China, living at that time in the mountains near Hong Kong. For over five years Master Yi Eng transmitted to Master Chia the most sacred and closely held Taoist practices, formulas and methods of internal alchemy.
Grandmaster Mantak Chia author of dozens of books teaches in all parts of the world and resides at the Tao Garden Retreat Centre in Northern Thailand. His Scottish representatives, Gordon & Maria Faulkner brought him to Glasgow, as part of his world tour. Unfortunately teaching commitments would not allow me to attend his seminar but Bob Lowey and I went along to have a chat with his at the end of his workshop.
