What You Will Learn
In this five-day workshop, we’ll practice the foundational Universal Healing Tao meditations and exercises together and we’ll discuss the basis of Taoism, self-healing, wellness and spirituality. This workshop is both for beginners to the Universal Healing Tao as well as longtime students.
Here is more information on the foundational Taoist practices that we will learn and practice together.
Inner Smile – The Inner Smile is a powerful practice for new students and experienced practitioners alike. By using the simple smile that we had as a baby we connect with our vital organs and breathe in the positive virtues energy of the respective organ. The meditation technique of the Inner Smile teaches you how to get in touch with your inner organs, feel love and appreciation for them so that stress and negative emotions are transformed into creativity and healing.
Microcosmic Orbit – Opening the Microcosmic Orbit is one of the cornerstones of the Universal Healing Tao system. When we feel energy circulating in the Microcosmic Orbit it balances our organ energy and the endocrine system of our body. The Microcosmic Orbit connects us with the energy of nature and the universe. It is a very healing and spiritual practice.
Six Healing Sounds – The Six Healing Sounds is one of the core practices in the Universal Healing Tao system. We hold negative energy in every part of our body, especially in our major organs. By calming the mind and smiling and breathing into our major organs we become aware of the negative charge in an organ.
Tao Yin – Tao Yin is a series of revitalizing exercises that develop flexibility, strength, resiliency, and suppleness. These exercises create harmony within the body, mind and spirit through their integrative principles. Tao Yin means ‘directing energy’ and this helps us to release chronic tension, energy blockages, and toxicity that may have accumulated in the body over many years. These exercises activate Chi flow in the meridians, opening and strengthening them.
We will also practice Iron Shirt Qi Gong and we will learn about the Healing Love meditations and energy cultivation exercises.
