The Taoist Experience
Taoism is a philosophy of living that originated in the shamanic roots of Chinese civilization. It is rooted in simplicity and lays emphasis on following the rhythms of nature. In the world of today, where we find ourselves suffering from physical, emotional, mental and spiritual distress and disillusionment, Taoism is a practical, scientific, cross-cultural pathway to manifesting a life of balance and fulfillment.
Many modern people feel disconnected and ungrounded in their being. They feel adrift and alone, searching for a deep connection to Source. Taoism, whose teachings are 5,000 years old, offers a way to connect in a deep and balanced way, to the source of all life. Its health practices such as qigong, dao in (Taoist yoga), breathing practices and meditation all support a healthy lifestyle and are open to anyone, no matter what religion you already practice. Its attitudes and philosophy help guide us through the often confusing and sometimes painful areas of life.
The teachings of Taoism can give us greater health, balanced emotions and even a more clear and focused mind.
This module examines apparently negative qualities like emptiness and uselessness and celebrates their virtues and hidden powers as understood the teaching of Tao.
Using tales from Tao, this module focuses on gaining wisdom through its emphasis on “belly knowledge” verses “head knowledge” and letting go to grow spiritually and evolve.
