In the indigenous Chinese cosmology, human’s instinctual desires are believed to be the natural expressions of “heaven’s mandate”. The ancient Taoists started to learn the spiritual essence of animals through qigong movements as early as 200 AD.
Our modern life often demands us to depart far away from the holistic and organic expressions of instinctual desires. As a result, we may become subjected to forces that are corrupting our wellbeing and connection to the larger life.
Join us in this Dancing Tao series to reunite with the wild and primal, and allow our mind, heart and spirit to receive nourishment from the interconnected life force on Earth!
In this course, you will:
- Connect with your primal desires and instincts through simple, gentle and playful movements
- Integrate the instincts with the logical mind through the ancient wisdom of the Tao
- Regenerate nervous system and regulate emotions
- Discover your unique self-expression through improvisational movements
