About Tao Meditation
Tao Meditation methods are based on ancient wisdom that awaken the body’s energy system for complete health, happiness, and inner peace. Have you ever thought of yourself as an energetic being? Actually, everything you are is ultimately energy. Many ancient traditions refer to an energy or life force that runs through all living things as chi, qi or ki. Ki energy is the unseen life force in all things. Creating unification of ki energy and consciousness provides tremendous power.
Our physical and energy bodies become tense and damaged through stress, old injuries, poor nutritional habits, lack of circulation, and emotions we feel we cannot control. Meditation can help reverse the effect of this damage by developing an inner sense of peace and an ability to handle stress before it creates physical damage in the body. However, many times people find it difficult to meditate because their energy body is out of balance and their physical body is not flexible enough to keep certain postures. Tao meditation takes a double-sided approach to helping you develop a satisfying, inspiring, and healing meditation practice. During the Tao Meditation retreats, you will learn both exercises to heal your physical and energy body, as well as meditation methods to quiet your mind and unite with your inner peace and wisdom.
The perspective of Tao emphasizes that complete health and happiness begins and ends with the energy system. Problems with the energy system are rooted in problems of the body, mind, and spirit. A change in energy signifies transformation of the truest sort.
