What is TaoWay?
The name TaoWay is a coinage abbreviation of Taoist way (method). Taoists have over a 5000 year history of observing nature and devising healing arts. These include acupuncture, herbalism, Tai Chi, Qi Gong harmonising exercises and meditation techniques for enhancing physical well being, mental tranquillity and spiritual fulfilment. Taoists believe in the doctrine non action (Wu Wei). The concept of Taoist non-action does not refer to doing nothing. It means to follow the flow of natural forces and not to consciously try to overcome it or to control it. Instead, one should allow the forces of nature to work in their own way and their own time.
Qi (Chi) is the universal energy, the fundamental building block and manifestation of natural forces for all beings in the universe. Taoist Qi exercises and meditation techniques are widely practised in China and many Asian Countries. These techniques are well known for their gentle healing and calming effects as well as their effectiveness of promoting good health, virility and longevity.
Taoists treat body, mind and spirit as an integral entirety. By practising the appropriate meditation techniques, Tai Chi or Qi Gong exercises, as well as adopting a carefree philosophy and to live a holistic life style, one can activate the transformation of energy within one's physical, psychical and spiritual spheres. The transformation of energy will rejuvenate and strengthen the physical body, widen the perception of the mind for greater creative potentials and enrich the spiritual self for higher inspirations and more noble purposes.
