How it all began box flatHOW IT ALL BEGAN…

At a time in history when Yoga was practiced in basements and Martial Arts was found only in the movies, Taoist Internal Alchemy was not accessible to the western world. This was the time when Master Mantak Chia came to America with a dream to share Taoist Wisdom.

“Teaches you the hidden secrets found in the knowledge of Master Chia. It will be one of the most enlightening documentaries that you will ever watch.” – The Examiner

“…really about the first generation of American and European students themselves, who sought Chia out and went on to form a substantial community,” – Video Librarian
