7th May 10:00am – 5:00 pm (doors open 9:30 am)
‘The Tao of Love’
The Tao of Love is about walking your own path – a path rooted in love. Taoist meditations and practices enable us to connect deeply with ourselves, cultivate our radiance and open us to a richer experience of life.
In this workshop we will focus on relationships, intimacy and love.
We will look at how Taoist practices can support our relationships. And life is really all about relationships, starting with the relationship we have with ourselves, our romantic and family relationships, the relationships we have with friends, co-workers, with nature, with the larger world. Relationships are woven into every aspect of our lives.
And all of our relationships have one thing in common and that is what WE bring to them in the form of our behaviours, attitudes, beliefs and level of awareness – both of self and of others.
Our sexuality lies as the core of our being. Taoism has always understood that sexuality is an integral part of life, and sexual energy is not suppressed but embraced. Sexual energy is the creative life force energy; when it is combined with the loving energy of the heart it becomes the greatest healing force in the world.
In this workshop you will:
Explore new paradigms for relationships
Understand how love changes over time
Gain a deeper understanding of the difference between male and female sexual energy
Learn Taoist meditations to centre yourself, open your heart and connect with your feminine essence
Learn chi kung (qi gong) exercises to cultivate your sexual energy
Have an introduction to the jade egg practice
Please bring or wear loose comfortable clothing and a yoga mat.
(Please note that in the workshop, all exercises will be practised without a jade egg)
