The Fountain of Youth

SP 1 - History

Spinning exercises to rejuvenate the human energy system were first described to the Western world by Peter Keller* in his book 'The Eye of Revelation' (1939). Revised editions of this book renamed'Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth' were published in 1985 and 1989.

Peter Keller claims that these exercises originated from a Tibetan monastery and were conveyed to him by an English Colonel serving in India.

These exercises are now in most literature referred to as The Five Tibetan or Tibetan Rites.

In more recent times other authors have tested these exercises through personal practice, and confirmed their validity.

SP 2 - The Five Tibetan

You are your own healing power.

The Five Tibetan combine spinning with four Yoga movements.
This combination revitalises and rebalances the body it also cleanses the Aura* and pulls the posture into the preferred energy flow.
The spinning subjects the whole body to a centrifugal force while the four other exercises realign the four alchemic elements ( F. W. A. E.) along the spinal column.
These exercises are fantastic for your vitality and spiritual growth, and reduce the effects of aging. They strech your posture towards upright and balanced.
Chalcocite crystal. 2005. C.F.

Starting with the spinning exercise.

Always spin in clockwise direction in Northern and Southern Hemesphere. Then follow up with the four back exercises.
ARROWS: IN / OUT indicate recommended breathing
Repeat each exercise up to (not exceding) 21 times before moving to the next.

For maximum benefit, practise daily. At the beginning do each exercise only as many times as you can do comfortably (perhaps 3 times) never go in to discomfort . Over time, gradually work up to the maximum of 21 times (nose breathing is preferred).
A full set including the spinning can be completed in 7 minutes.


Take 5 to 10 seconds for focusing on each upcoming exercise.

Exercise 2 to 5 are aimed at the spinal column and can be executed as, smoothly pivoting with the breathing.

SP 3 - Esoteric Background


The 7 Chakras, their symbols
and their associated colours
The principle purpose of these exercises is to revitalise and cleanse the seven energy points ('chakras') of the human body.

These seven Chakras are like powerful electrical fields, invisible to the eye, but quit real nonetheless. They are located at various points along the spine from its base up to the crown of the head.

The Chakras are associated with some of the glands and organs of the human body.

The 'Kundalini' ("Divine Cosmic Energy") dormant at the base of the spine and conveyor of energy to the chakras, also benefits from the spinning exercises.

Benefits of Spinning include;

  • Energising and cleansing the Aura.
  • Straightening the spinal column

The Aura is a personalised energy field which radiates from the feet up to the crown of the head, enveloping the entire body.
Each person's aura reflects, through its vibrancy, the level of vitality and the degree of spiritual refinement.

The 5 exercises are related to Energy and the 4 alchemic elements; Earth, Air, Water and Fire.

1.Energy The spinning itself, through its rotation, cleanses energy (Personal force field).
2. Earth In exercise 2 the whole body is fully supported by the ground.
3. Air Exercise 3 focuses on the chest and lungs.
4. Water Exercise 4 focuses on the abdominal region containing an abundance of body fluids
5. Fire Exercise 5 is the more strenuous, generating body heat.

SP 4 - Spinning as a Centrifugal Force

'Double Spiral', by Claus 2005
Centrifugal force is strong enough to override the force of gravity and has the capacity to separate liquids from solids(examples a and b).

  1. A child's toy such as the top defies gravity and keeps spinning on its pointy base because of the centrifugal force of its rotation.

  2. The spin dryer of a washing machine separates liquid water from solid clothes.

When doing the 'Energy exercise' (spinning) your body at once becomes a centrifuge, invigorating all fluid bearing organs (90+% of the Human body is fluid).

Increas body balance.

Two small organs located in the inner ears control our sense of balance by recording Gravity. The centrifugal force of spinning affects these organs to and can cause dizziness or when week, nausea.
Regular spinning exercises strengthen these organs and does increase the sense of balance significantly.

It is beyond any doubt that the main feature which makes spinning stand out from most other exercises is the generation of a centrifugal force and then integrating that in to the spinal column creating extra ordinary beneficial effects on the body.

SP 5 - My Personal Experience

My introduction to spinning was in my mid forties.
I was intrigued by the simplicity of the exercises and by the clear focus on the spinal column and its associated spiralling energy as identified in so many philosophies.

Over-optimistic I started with 7 rotations and was sick with nausea for the rest of the day. I could not manage more than a few of each of the other four exercises either.
It took about 9 months of regular daily exercises before I managed the recommended maximum total of 21 of each of the five exercises without experiencing nausea or stress.

The increase in vigour and balance over this period was remarkable. My sense of balance had improved enormously as for example manifested in my much improved ice skating skills.

My social outlook had also changed significantly, resulting in more friends and the emergence of a new personal image (as expressed in my dress, physical posture and mental attitude).

'Spiral with Stone', by Claus 1995

Experiment: Anti clockwise ? For the Southern Hemisphere.

Late 1980 Early 1990 I became aware of a Sydney Group which was spinning anti clockwise.
I practised that for about a year and my conclusion was: In the Southern Hemisphere:

Anti clockwise is Stabilising
and clockwise is Energising.

The Spinning corresponds to the DNA, for example; spiral shells all turn the same way, whatever Hemisphere.

Life only uses left-hand-proteins (ie the amino acid making up the protein, which is constructed from sugar, has a left hand screw.)

Spinning clockwise Invokes (Energy)
Spinning anti clockwise Banishes (Energy)

The Fibonacci Curve


Now, many years of regular spinning exercise later, the positives have continued to improve my life and circumstances.
I live an exciting life together with my Soul mate in a wonderful environment, my vitality is great and my personal growth continues to move in a positive direction.
