A Practical Approach to Building your Ultimate Life

with Peter Francis & Claire Cunneen
Chinese medicine healers & Chi Health Institute mentors




The Five Healths is helpful for anyone interested in personal development, optimum health or facing a life change. It provides a comprehensive approach to living a meaningful life in a series covering each of the following five areas in your life: physical, mind, relationship, career, and finance. Each program provides a step-by-step process for self-discovery, defining purpose, and setting and aligning with goals that includes applied Qigong & meditation practices bringing the concepts of Five Elements to life in a highly interactive, enjoyable and thought-provoking experience.

Created by Dr Mao Shing Ni and his Infinichi team, this innovative series draws from over 30 years of clinical & life coaching experience and from the 5,000-year-old tradition of Chinese medicine. It offers integrative solutions based on the I Ching principle of change that empowers men and women to take charge of the revitalization of their body, mind, and spirit.


Dr Mao Shing Ni, renowned Chinese medicine practitioner and board-certified anti-aging specialist, has co-founded Yo San University and the Tao of Wellness award-winning centers for acupuncture and integrative medicine in Southern California. He has written several best-selling books, including Secrets of Longevity. His newest book, Live Your Ultimate Life, brings ancient secrets to the modern age by exploring how to use your Five Element personalities – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal or Water – to optimize your life. Dr Mao teaches workshops around the world on Living Your Ultimate Life.

Chi Rivers co-founders and directors Peter Francis & Claire C Cunneen are in private practice in Geneva, Switzerland. They have shared the methods and resources of the Integral Way tradition as mentors and senior instructors of the College of Tao & Chi Health Institute for over 25 years. See staff

Ultimate Mind Health Program
Are you the driver of your mind or is your mind the driver of your life? If you are not in control of your mind, it may be difficult to manifest what you want in your life.

The purpose of the Ultimate Mind Health program is to integrate these various mental states into one effective, well-functioning whole. Based on the ancient Five Elements paradigm, this section will show you how to align with your personal element and provide tools to help you tap into the potential of your mind, cultivate intuition and enhance your mind-body connection. You will gain new skills for reducing stress, increasing concentration and improving mental and emotional wellbeing.
