Exploring life from a modern Taoist perspective.
Hi dear Casey
It was a source of bottomless joy to run into your website. I enjoy your words immensely and have made my best essay to put them into practice. Books are dead and when we put them into practice in life they become alive. I’m endlessly interested in Taoism and have found it really profound. I just wanted to know if it is possible to work on Qi Gong trough books or having a master is indispensable.
@Saber: Having a real teacher is best in Qi Gong, someone who can act as eyes to correct and fine tune your process is important. You can also use videos. I don’t recommend using a book unless you already understand and know Qi Gong well.
@Brain: I help many people learn Taoism. My costs can be found here : https://personaltao.com/services/support-personal-tao/ There are also many online resources and forums which are free, and many books you can explore. The truth is Taoism is around you, it is just a question of how you decide to find and connect to it. You don’t need a guide, since your heart is that guide. Some people use me as a way to speed up the learning process, but look for ways to extending your awareness and putting it all together. One option many people miss, is to begin Qi… Read more »
Greetings: It was such a great moment to come upon this site. It has only added fuel to the fire that has been burning within me over the last several weeks. I, like one of the replies above, too struggled with that feeling of something missing. I was raised Catholic and did feel out of step with that faith. I did travel around from one Christian denomonation to another and still felt an emptiness. One day, however, I opened up an old copy of the Tao Te Jing that I had had from my college days and the first two… Read more »
Hi Kathy If you want you can arrange with me some initial sessions to teach you. Every person who develops a Taoist practice tends to follow a path that matches their nature. Take the time to talk to many different practitioners and learn from the ones who feel right. Give some space towards the practitioners who seem to define the teachings in terms of ego. You can download the book I wrote for free. ( click the Tao book link at the top of the page) You mention the pineal gland, which is considered the seat of the third eye… Read more »
Hello, I suffered a TBI about three years ago I have found during the pineal gland awaking exercises that I have found online, I have no pain. Your comments make so much sense to me in the fact of being able to accept others. In stead of trying to form others to fit your own perception. I was taught to be nice nice nice until I could not listen to my inner voice telling me some thing was out of place. I’am very much a Christian so new things generally are perceived as something to fear. Jesus was not one… Read more »
Hi Raemelle A honor to meet you If you are interested I can arrange some starter Taoist classes. I teach Taoism to students from 13 countries over the Phone and Internet. The learning process for Taoism has several distinct steps, One of the earliest steps can considered to be practicing awareness. Taoism is very old and many variations exist. I start by teaching a simple variation that focuses on each student’s nature. This means the lessons about Taoism grow by matching the student’s heart, rather than teaching a framework that students bend themselves out of shape to reach. Please feel… Read more »
I am very interested in learning more about Taoism. I’m 54 yrs. All of my life I’ve felt like something was missing. I’ve been to many churches trying to find myself; (nothing there). I never stopped my mission, though I discontinued church. I purchased a book by Dr. Wayne Dyer some years ago, “Pulling your own Strings”. I loved this book. I read it over and over again. I don’t have the book now; I guess I lost it because we moved so much (relocating). I’m a follower of Dr. Wayne Dyer, that’s how I found out about Taoism. I… Read more »
