Most importantly, a Taoist retreat is actually a guided exploration in learning how to live a more complete life. Taoism as a practice teaches people how to explore and sense potential. The ability to read potential has many names across many cultures. However, the end result of expressing potential is always a statement of who you are as a person. This means our Taoist retreats are all about helping you see and then work against every option and challenge around you. In this you will grow and become more graceful as a person, more your own person. These educational retreats will help you both develop and learn to appreciate the beauty of your own natural gifts. Take the time in this retreat to explore the world with extra clarity. It isn’t about learning some secret, rather this is about learning to be complete with your own natural abilities to read, understand and move with your potential!
Western Culture tries to force learning to be external to a person. A modern person is forced and shaped relative to outside culture & knowledge. This Taoist retreat is the opposite approach of learning. When you come here on a Personal Tao retreat, you will be learning internally to be a stronger person and then flow more gracefully around external forces trying to limit you.
This means we use your life itself for the baseline of the teaching and then apply a balanced mix of Taoist practices (meditation, exercise, awareness principles) to keep you grounded while exploring all the options ahead of you in life. This is very critical as each student in our retreats will learn tools that will help them hold a very practical and flexible outlook in their life. You will leave our retreat with a deeper strength and discover how to move with more grace in your life. Potential represents what “might be”. So this Taoist retreat will be a time to finally take a look at all your options and then set into motion the actions that will focus / move you into the life you actively dream as yours.
Depending on your needs, you can customize the length of time to match your life situation. A Taoist retreat can be as short as a day or you can extend it over several weeks. Generally people come for five to seven day retreats. Our Taoist retreats are open to everyone.
The cost of the retreat is always a reasonable time for time rate.
Our main retreat location is in Hilo Hawaii on the Wailuku river.
