Tao Meditation

-The name we give to our retreats and practices. Sitting, moving, standing still, lying down and interacting-all are functions where you can practice your meditation: calm awareness. Our proposal is simple yet impactful. Any form-qigong, sitting or standing meditation, tao yoga can be the framework in which to glimpse the essence of Tao. During all retreats a glimpse or more will be pointed out: how to bring the Tao into your life. What is it? The Tao is all things and nothing in particular. We choose to emphasise simplicity, well being, kindness to self and others.

 

Tao yoga

or “dao-in” is the name given to an ancient series of movements that begin where hatha yoga ends-in stillness. The movements are mostly easy, people of all abilities will find them useful.
