This series of classes will explore the meditations associated with Taoism, Nei Gong and the concept of Wu Wei ~ non doing.
Nei Gong translates to mean ‘internal work’, it is the name given to the spiritual practice of the philosophies of Taoism and the alchemy of The Three Treasures.
Taoism as a tradition was formed around 2,500 years ago... commonly associated with the teachings of legendary figure Lao Tzu. It is debated whether Lao Tzu was a real person or a figurehead for the wisdom of a collection of people.
Some describe Taoism as a philosophical tradition and practical method-based system of practice and others believe it to be merged with religious Buddhist beliefs. This series of classes will be delivered from a secular / non-religious perspective.
We will explore the foundations of spirituality in Taoist philosophy, along with the developmental stages of Nei Gong through a series of meditations. There will be some Qigong - physical movement practice incorporated however this form the minority part of the sessions.
