Welcome to
PRIMORDIAL ALCHEMIST®️ System

PRIMORDIAL ALCHEMIST System 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

The Celestial Water Path to Enlightenment…


Since the times of Antiquity, the True Alchemical Teachings which gave authentic awakening were extremely rare. Receiving teaching from Masters who had attained the highest spiritual awakening of the Living Body of Light were reserved for very few and fortunate individuals. These rare teachings are now being offered to those walking the path of true knowing. 

The KUNLUN System is for those seeking the path of no-more learning.

This ancient method arises from the temple of the Great Taoist Immortals in the sacred Kunlun Mountains. This is where Fu Xi, The Dragon Immortal of the East first taught these ancient skills.

The KUNLUN System is the Celestial (water) path to enlightenment. 

Mugen Roshi (Max) and his wife Diana Dao Shi teach this traditional Taoist system in a light-hearted and simple way, providing the tools needed to attain results in alchemical cultivation, and leading the practitioner to a quick awakening of their true dormant potential. The foundational methods of KUNLUN Seminar Level 1 will help practitioners begin to awaken themselves naturally by connecting to one’s childlike nature. The KUNLUN System does not utilize force or the seeking mind, but instead achieves awakening through self-surrender, the downward flow of water. This is the essence of Taoist Internal Alchemy.

The practices offered in The KUNLUN System are for those seeking a spiritual path of internal alchemy leading to the truth within.

Practices that may be covered, time permitting: KUNLUN System, One Breath, I-Jong, Red Phoenix, 5 Elements, Laughter Qi Gong, Daoist Traveling Hands, and much more!

“Snake Kung Fu: A Taoist Path of Harmonizing the Body, Mind, and Spirit”

Join us in exploring this unique, village style Taoist internal martial art. Snake Kung Fu is a holistic approach to harmonize the body, mind, and spirit.

Imagine moving with the grace and fluidity of a snake. As the serpent energy flows, so do we, with movements that twist and coil, lubricating each joint, enriching the flow of blood and qi, and stretching the spine.

The gentle motions of this practice open the body’s circulation and stimulate the glands that keep you healthy.  For those seeking a relaxed way to move that boosts your internal and external health, Snake Kung Fu is perfect.

There are many levels to this art- internal movements, external movements, and the breath. Through the specific snake breathing, we guide chi deep within, fortifying our core. Mugen Roshi and Dao Shi begin these teachings with the ‘Snake Swallowing the Sun,’ a foundational practice to fill the reservoirs of chi essential for walking the snake’s path.

Snake Kung Fu builds the foundation for advanced teachings, such as the “Snake Bagua,” integrating both dynamic and still practices, from sitting to moving meditations. Anyone who is ready to put in the time and effort can learn this ancient art, offering a unique way to channel and express the cultivated KUNLUN energy.

The Whispering Teapot

The Whispering Teapot is a special event hosted by Mugen Roshi & Dao Shi. This event is a group Zoom Session to connect, drink tea, and have all your questions answered. It always lasts at least one hour. As you know, Taoist time works a little differently so the event may run longer!

These online events are a wonderful introduction for beginners on the path. You can meet Mugen Roshi & Dao Shi, learn the history of the KUNLUN System, and ask questions about your spiritual path. It is also the perfect opportunity for long-time Cultivators to check in, refine your practice, and renew your inspiration on the path.

We will spend the hour sharing answers to your questions, providing recommendations, insights, and more. And, of course, Mugen Roshi likes to joke and tell stories… you never know what you will hear!

So gather your favorite tea, some tea snacks and prepare to have a good time.

We are excited to be able to connect with you in this way and we are so fortunate to be in each other’s lives!

“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.”
