This program offers an invitation to thoroughly explore the time-honored practices that promote harmony in your Inner-Trinity (body, Qi, and spirit) and in your Outer-Trinity (family, community, and environment).
Instruction is offered in an immersive setting. During four intensive trainings, we delve ever deeper into the theories and practices of these ancient lineage teachings. It is through our own cultivation practices that we learn to turn knowledge into the wisdom of our own daily experience.
In the Daoist tradition, an essential component of all internal cultivation practices is community. Being in the company of like heart-minds offers tremendous support on our life journey. After the initial 4 trainings of the JingDao program, we will continue to offer various advanced topic retreats in order to support our growing community of cultivation practitioners. As we walk together on the Daoist path, we grow as a family, with students building lasting friendships as Qi brothers and sisters.
