Natural Way Meditation, also known as TAO or Taoist meditation, emphasizes a return to simplicity, self-regulation and avoidance of extremes. Meditation has been shown to be very effective in reducing stress, lowering hypertension, high blood pressure and slowing down the aging process.
For thousands of years the meditation skills of the ancient Taoist (men and women who lived close to Nature and functioned as part mystic and part scientist) were used to explore the inner landscapes of the human mind. For all the above reasons, Taoist meditation techniques have focused on simplicity, naturalness, evenness, patience and emotional balance first and foremost. One group of cancer survivors went to a weekly, 90 minute meditation meeting, a second group discussed their feelings (and probably felt awkward) for 90 minuted per week, and a third just went to a since six hour stress reduction workshop.
After three months, the first group’s telomeres were the same length as they were at the beginning of the experiment, while the last groups were significantly shorter. If You Knew What Longboarding Was You'd Head To Cape Town If there is one thing South Africa is, it's big.
We received a number of questions about Internal Alchemy as a result of the publication of our recent whitepaper Interpreting the Ancient Codes: Exploring the Classics of Taoist Alchemy, An Introduction to the Zhou Yi Can Tong Qi. Stated classically, the Nei Dan practitioner transmutes the three treasures of the body, Jing (?) Qi (?) and Shen (?) to reunite with the Dao (?). The number of stages may vary by teacher of tradition, but the overall progression is similar.
Although the general principles utilized by the various schools and lineages are similar, there is often quite a bit of variation in the specific practices. A: This question is like asking, “What is the best cuisine in the world?” The answer is unique for each person and depends upon the common affinity between the student, teacher and art. If you are serious about wanting to study Nei Dan but do not have a teacher, then the best advice I can give without knowing you personally would be to establish a diligent Qigong practice of some sort. For those of you who want to read one of the important classical Nei Dan texts see Pregadio’s translation of Zhang Boduan’s  (???)  Awakening to Reality: The “Regulated Verses” of the Wuzhen pian, a Taoist Classic of Internal Alchemy.

Taoist Water Method Meditation is designed to lead people gently and gradually to the core of their being. Like water wears away rock, Taoist Inner Dissolving wears away obstacles to our spiritual growth, leading us gently inward to our being and helping us to fully live our daily lives.
Taoist Meditation contains sitting, standing, lying down and moving techniques and joins well with Wu style Tai Chi Chuan.
Tai Chi Meditation is the merger of Wu style Tai Chi with the practices of Taoist Meditation. Taoist Meditation is additionally useful for releasing stress from daily life, and for help in becoming at one with nature, the universe and other human beings. Some of the oldest Buddhist meditations on mindfulness of the body vanished from India but were preserved in Southeast Asia. The meditations in this workshop help us open, refine and balance the core energies of our body and mind, with our central channel, our chakras and our aura (etheric body). Taoist Inner Dissolving (often called The Gentle Rain) is the central practice in the Water Tradition. Taoism preserved and developed the native meditation traditions of China, Tibet and elsewhere. TRADITIONAL CHINESE CULTURE Professor Zhang Qizhi was born on November 12, 1927 in Nantong City, Zhejiang Province.

Practical Traditional Chinese MedicineThe book is reader-friendly, explaining profound concepts in simple terms. Au?ere Bewegungen sind hier nicht unbedingt notig, denn das Qi wird primar durch die Kraft unseres Geistes aktiviert und gelenkt. Its breathing techniques resemble that of young children, which naturally breathe from their bellies. And, more and more, progressively minded primary care and mental health professionals are recommending meditation practice to their patients to prevent heart attacks and stroke, and to help recover from a broken heart and or other psychological trauma. These spiritual explorers managed to accumulate vast amounts of knowledge into how the mind-body-spirit relationship works, thus helping to make many important discoveries in medicine and science. If an individual does not gather and maintain healthy amounts of clean energy on a regular basis, he or she may greatly increase their chances for illness and misfortune. But, perhaps the biggest culprit for harming the body and causing it to lose precious amounts of life-force, is the abuse of one's emotions and too much thinking. At the beginning of the three month experiment, scientists from the Tom Baker Cancer Center looked at their telomeres. Long story short, go meditate and just be mindful of yourself and the world around you; do it for the telomeres.
Internal Alchemy provides a set of principles and techniques for the sincere practitioner to transcend the mundane and realize perfection in this lifetime. However, even if Nei Dan can be called the highest the form of Qigong, all Qigong is not Nei Dan. In this model, the first three stages are called Cultivating Immortality (Xian Gong), the last two, Cultivating Dao (Dao Gong).
This is because the specific techniques are often tailored to the needs of an individual student.
Pregadio offers a scholarly summary of the history of Nei Dan in his free ebook, The Way of the Golden Elixir: A Historical Overview of Taoist Alchemy.

The 'inner dissolving' process is especially effective for helping individuals to become aware of their hidden motivations and enabling them to change or eliminate those that they no longer find useful, ultimately leading students to balance and harmony with themselves and with the universe around them. In this version of the White Bone Meditation from the Theravada tradition students learn to visualize their skeleton and then their chakras (energy centers) in order to connect with the energy of the universe. This meditations in this workshop will give students a tangible awareness of their inner energies and will be helpful for all interested in increasing their health and spirituality.
As water wears away rock, Inner Dissolving enables us to wear away obstacles to our spiritual growth leading us gently inward to our being and helping us to fully live our lives. In this meditation from the Water Tradition of Lao Tzu, students learn to feel and transform the energies of their mind and body, so they may resonate with the energies of their inmost selves, of nature and the universe around them.
Long believed to promote feelings of well-being, being present helps people slow down and recognize the wonder in every day.
In Emptiness there is clarity, inner stillness and a central place that is permanent and stable. One of the primary goals of Natural Way meditation is to reduce complicated thinking and to regain the innocent qualities of a newborn infant; this in turn helps the body become lighter, less burdened and more vital.
Through their patient observation of Nature and quiet contemplation and self-introspective practices, they were able to highly develop their intuition and mental capacities. Being tired and fatigued often, or being hyper and anxious on a regular basis, will break down onea€™s immune system and weaken the body.
Too much or too little of anything, whether it be happiness and laughter or sadness, worry, anger, fear, jealousy, envy, greed, etc, will result in a major drop of power in the body. Because, the quick and clever methods of the 'MIND" usually have a strong tendency for fantasy, self-delusion and separation, rather than clarity, humility and integration. Telomeres are strands of protein that waggle around on the ends of chromosomes for protection.

The Methods are generally available to students, although occasionally certain methods are considered secrets.
A committed daily practice is essential for success in any art, especially internal cultivation. As a co-founder of TCCII, he is dedicated to promoting deeper and broader understanding of the Chinese cultural traditions, and works tirelessly to revitalize the traditions that have special meaning and relevance to today’s world. Taoist Meditation is safe and beneficial for all, and can be practiced amid the stresses of daily life. With its use of visualization and its power to help students cut through attachments to a calm, clear awareness, the Chakra Balance Meditation is an excellent introduction to the central Buddhist tradition of meditation.
Cosmic Resonance provides a tangible connection to a profound but little known tradition of Taoist meditation.
The Insight Meditations in this workshop offer breathing, movement and awareness techniques to help students gain self-knowledge, and unite body, mind, heart and soul.
The goal of many spiritual traditions, the peaceful quiet mind - empty - yet filled with awareness, is the perfect vehicle for increasing mindfulness and cosmic realization. All of the above benefits of meditation practice are truly excellent, but are only positive side affects in comparison to its more noble purpose: to deepen one's spiritual understanding of oneself and others, in order to live more harmoniously in this world.
And, in combination with their refined spiritual skills, they further discovered and mapped-out the energy channels within the human body and helped to create the advanced energy science known as Qigong, which further evolved into the extremely comprehensive healing arts of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.
And, if left uncorrected for too long, this state of imbalance will greatly cloud the mind and further compromise onea€™s spiritual resolve. Genuine spiritual training requires large amount of clean energy, so the first prerequisite for safe spiritual cultivation is that the body should first and foremost be healthy and balanced.
He provides a diverse curriculum and rich experience for his students, drawn from his many years of intensive training in Internal Alchemy, Qigong, Tai Chi, Xingyiquan, Baguazhang, and Fujian Baihequan.
The methods are gentle and natural, balancing a person's energies while allowing their spirituality to develop comfortably and smoothly.
The meditations taught in this workshop will help us to become aware of our hidden motivations and enable us to change or eliminate those that we no longer find useful. Being Present is an excellent introduction to Buddhist and Taoist meditation and will be useful to all those who wish to increase their consciousness and awakened to the universal in everyday life. In this workshop traditional Taoist techniques will help students relax, release energy blocks, and convert emotional energy to spirit and emptiness. Thus, making one even more susceptible to psychic disturbances, spiritual troubles and or negative physical addictions of all kinds.
Additionally, people who prematurely play with or experiment with the subtle spiritual forces present in the natural world, just for entertainment, power, greed and or quick profit, unfortunately will suffer greatly and possibly irreversible damage to their bodies.
Those who finish are as rare as the phoenix‘s feathers and the unicorn‘s horns” (???????,???????, Wen Dao Zhe Duo Ru Niu Mao, De Dao Zhe Feng Mao Lin Jiao). A consistent practitioner of both the martial and healing arts, he excels in helping students connect the principles with practice, and integrate them into their daily life.
The Gentle Rain will be helpful for all those who wish to develop peaceful, relaxed, energy and feel more at one with the universe around them. Open to all, 'The Jump to Emptiness' will be useful to everyone who wishes to relax into an expanded consciousness and a new level of inner harmony and joy.
That is, many people learn it, but few are committed enough to follow through with the practice.
If you have established a good daily practice ethic, you will have a good foundation to learn Internal Alchemy when the time, place, and people are right.
