Daoist Arts program to preserve the use of the Stems and Branches in classical Chinese healing arts, internal cultivation practice, and in Yijing divination techniques, as well as to create an international network of practitioners and teachers skilled in the deepest roots of China’s ancient wisdom traditions.
This program is based on an unbroken lineage of Daoist oral tradition, the Song Dynasty astrology classic, DiTianShui 滴天髓, the HuangDiNeiJing 黃帝內經, and the DaoDeJing 道德經. Guided by principles of the Yijing易經, one of the oldest classical Chinese texts, the structure of this program includes four levels of training: Yuan 元, Heng 亨, Li 利, and Zhen 貞. To help students deepen and embody their understanding of these ancient arts, we share secret Daoist internal alchemy practices throughout each level of the program.
