Welcome to Primordial Alchemist

Primordial Alchemist 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!

One-Point Looking

One-Point Looking
Online Event

Ancient teachings are a treasure trove of secrets for cultivators.

The practice of point-looking is one such treasure. This teaching can be found in the higher level practices of all ancient traditions, but it is essential that it is properly transmitted and understood.

One-point looking increases the storage capacity of Qi, awakens the nine dormant temples in the brain, and reveals the secrets hidden within the body-mind-spirit.

It feeds the Gold Dragon body, stimulates the Crystal Palace, and regrows the Pineal Gland.

Point looking is a very simple method that can be practiced in just a few minutes and is essential for Cultivators.

Date: Saturday, February 10, 2024
Time: 2pm-5pm PST
Location: Zoom

Longevity Retreat

Longevity Retreat: 3 Day Online Event

It is to the delight of our soul that we learn the way of the Tao, reflected in eternity through our physical bodies. This is witnessed best with health, longevity, tranquility, and ultimately the everlasting body of Gold Dragon or Gold Phoenix.” -Mugen Roshi

This 3-Day Online event works in connection with 4 Taoist Practices to soften the mind, ground strengthened qi to the earth, and maintain balanced health & longevity.

The Longevity Retreat can be taken as a traditional online retreat, or as a 3 Day class.

The Longevity Retreat presents the unique opportunity to train directly with Mugen Roshi and Dao Shi in retreat, from the comfort of your home. You will also have the chance to interact with cultivators from all over the world.

The beautiful thing about this event is you get to design your level of experience.

If you have jobs or household responsibilities, you can experience this event as a regular class logging-in and out at class times. If you have the time and desire to do so, you can turn this into a traditional retreat experience, immersing yourself into practice and isolation from the outside world. After registration each student will receive a guide that helps them choose their path including time, meal choices, and setting up your sacred space.

The journey begins and ends with you!

Longevity Practices:

Heart Fasting Method

This mind related practice utilizes specific meditative forms to soften and empty the “monkey mind” of many obstructions. The method seems easy but requires dedication and consistency of daily practice to free the mind of self -generated doubts.

Fasting the heart-mind will enable you to experience less stress, to be non-attached to the daily monkey mindset, and allow smoother Shen Qi to flow within you.

This method is suitable, and can be used for all forms of practices within our system, but can also be used with any Taoist practices.

Life Extending Method

After one awakens the true thrusting channel you must ground the ever strengthening qi deep into the core of the earth. The ultimate purpose in attaining balanced health and longevity through the Life Extending Method is to continue self cultivation.

In ancient times this practice anchored the middle and lower Dantiens into the earth to both slow the age of the body and mind and also allow bliss and emptiness to naturally merge within the practitioner.

The life extension ways also use herbs, minerals and Neidan, Weidan (outer and inner) alchemical means to bring forth long life.

TWO Bonuses: Mugen Roshi and Dao Shi will share a special Guided Water Meditation to balance the cultivated energy with the earth AND teach the highly requested secret practice for blood, circulation, and heart health, the ‘3-1-2 Hidden Point Method’ !

These online events are a wonderful introduction for beginners on the path. You can meet Mugen Roshi, 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!

“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.”
