    How to apply  the Inner Alchemy Practices taught in OFT  level 3  to strengthen and ground your energy body so you can be more effective in OFT. 

The experiences of life impact us all, but how we receive and interpret those experiences depends on our view of life.

Our view of life will be based on many things, including our upbringing our relationship with father & mother, our siblings, the influence of the environment even our ancestors have a very big influence on us through our DNA and genetic inheritance.

If we had to sort through all these influences it could take us decades to really understand our view of life thankfully there is a much easier way. The 5 Phases of Chi/Qi  Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal.

According to the Taoist 5 Phase/Element model of the universe a human being is born with, or develops early in life, an imbalance in the natural functioning of ONE these Five phases.

This imbalance sometimes called the Constitutional Type becomes the underlying cause of symptoms and more importantly perception or view of life. Interestingly this way of seeing also holds the person’s deepest potential, with this element becoming a guardian for the person’s life. During the course Andrew  will explain and give example of each view and how that view is transformed through awareness.

This way of interpreting/viewing the world will be very close to us and feel so much a part of who we are that when its presented and seen for the first time completely objectively, it will change everything and align us back into a more balanced expression of that one element and therefore effect all the other elements and their expression as well.

This deep way of seeing the world never really leaves us but once we are conscious of its influence a lot more freedom opens up inside of us.

This deeply trans formative training with Andrew will focus on developing inner and outer skills to perceive the 5 phases of Chi/Qi. We will understand the Chi Nei Tsang touch as applied to the different organs. Most of the course will be focused on practical applications along with the theory behind the touch. Andrew will share his 30 years’ experience in interacting with these different constitutional types.

  • 1. Whats is the difference between Chi Nei Tsang & OFT
     

    The main difference is in the 1st level training, (OFT Level 1) which focuses on relaxing the nervous system.  The OFT touch is applied to the spine, kidneys and adrenals to allow the Chi Nei Tsang  to go far deeper when the abdomen is finally touched. The OFT touch on the back is directly impacting the water element.

    This approach is based on Andrews many years of experience with Chi Nei Tsang where he noticed that it took a long time with Chi Nei Tsang for people to feel safe enough to feel without the minds involvement. Andrew developed OFT so that the Taoist Inner Alchemy healing principles behind Chi Nei Tsang could be experienced first hand, rather then being taught intellectually.

    The other main difference is that when you are learning the Chi Nei Tsang on the abdomen in level 2 and level 3, Andrew is sharing what he has found to be most effective over many years of his own practice. There is less emphasis on learning many techniques and manipulations and more on developing sensitivity and embodiment of the healing principles that are at the root of lasting change.

  • 3. What is Original Feeling Touch, OFT?
     

    OFT - Original Feeling Touch - is a holistic approach to therapeutic touch. It catalyses amazing and often dramatic lasting healing using non intrusive unconditional touch.  It includes Chi Nei Tsang (CNT) the Taoist abdominal techniques first introduced to the west by Mantak Chia. It's been Andrews experience that OFT  has a far deeper level of effectiveness than Chi Ne Tsang alone.

    The key to healing lies in discharging and completing the hidden energy bound up in our nervous system and in trusting our body’s own natural ability to heal, even when relating to extreme events that were traumatic and  lie far back in the past, including soul memories. The body does not really live in linear time, so an event in our childhood feels  like its present today for the body especially if the energy of that event was not completed  and digested.

     OFT was developed by Andrew Fretwell for freeing the vital life force energies that are bound up in trauma, undigested  energetic charges. Human reactions to threat are instinctive and biological, and only later do they become psychological and cognitive.
     
    This accounts why many people can have cognitive awareness therapy for years and years and understand everything that happened to them, but still not have completed the underlying charge stored in the nervous system and cells. It’s only when the energy has been released and completed at the physical level can we say real healing and change has taken place.
     
    In all cases of Trauma there are three possible responses three innate survival strategies: The flight, fight and freeze (immobility) responses.
     
    You can observe this very simply walking along a road with friend enjoying life when suddenly a loud bang happens right next to you, it’s the cars exhaust!.... but your body is reacting much faster than the cognitive awareness and most peoples body can freeze up and tighten and is ready to evade danger…..until you see there is no danger."  You then discharge the energy naturally, perhaps laughing nervously and/or your body shaking. This reaction is actually very healthy and can save your life much more effectively then the rational cognitive brain.

    Chi Nei Tsang,  is always included in OFT sessions but only after the nervous system has fully relaxed and entered the para-sympathetic healing state. This is taught in OFT Level 1

    The OFT approach first consists of the deep relaxation of the body and a clear understanding of the 4 stages of healing/growth that every human being experiences.

    The OFT touch is applied on the back, spine and the adrenal glands, to deeply relax the nervous system and create a deep feeling of saftey and trust in the receiver of OFT. It’s the core strength of the OFT approach, becoming so relaxed and safe that we allow ourselves to feel deeply during Chi Nei Tsang, without the minds involvement. OFT GOES TO THE ROOT OF ALL SYMPTOMS
