Adepts of Healing Tao UK and Tao of the Shaman trained by Taoist Master-Trainer Kris Deva North are teaching courses and classes in Tai Chi, Qigong and the Taoist meditations of Mantak Chia, including a weekend of Zazendo, Zen Insight Meditation.
Kris blends learning Zen shiatsu and Taoist practices with NLP in which he qualified as master practitioner with Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna. He has practised Healing meditation for over 30 years. In 1993 he co-founded the Zen School of Shiatsu and Healing Tao Centre in London.
“So many people have found ways to become more effective human beings in their own terms, from compassion to confidence, energy to assertiveness, as well as simple methods of habit control and stress management,” says Kris “and although I may not know each individual’s problem or situation I do know we all have the resources to cope. Through these practices I can help you connect with deep levels of consciousness to access those resources.”
Tai Chi and Qigong training camp is from Tuesday 11th July afternoon to Sunday 16th morning at the Rosewell Centre, Castle Bytham NG33 4SL off the A1 between Stamford and Grantham, with self-defence, weapons forms and daily chi kung based on the Mantak Chia form and the Hidden Masters structures. Training and demonstrations (standard form, fast form, weapons forms, push-hands, self-defence, blindfold fighting) £117 for the five days, or £30 day-visit.
Tai Chi can be practised at any age, for health, to enhance your protective energy-field, to strengthen the physical and energetic immune system, to connect with higher and lower forces on the spiritual path, for self-defence, or simply to harmonise with the environment and alleviate the effects of stress.
The following weekend, also at Rosewell, from 10 am Saturday 22nd overnight through to 5 pm Sunday 23rd, a weekend of Zazendo with Kris Deva North: Zen Insight Meditation combining the Zen tradition, Vipassana experience and Taoist teachings with NLP: powerful techniques for attaining the elusive inner peace and harmony which, in the real world, could mean habit management and addiction control. £57
Then in London July 29th and 30th Kris introduces Step 1 of that journey which leads so many people to become even more effective human beings. Step 1 Foundations of Taoist Practice Weekend is an ideal introduction for both women and men, singles and couples, young and old. At the London Tao Centre 19 Phipp Street, London EC2. 10am to 5 pm Saturday and Sunday. £197.
The Taoist Spiritual Summer Retreat follows from 12th to 20th August in South Devon, with Steps 2 and 3 of the Taoist Practice. Thinking of a retreat as a real treat, this must be the closest to heaven on earth with silent meditation and sauna, tai chi and jacuzzi, chi kung (qigong) and swimming pool, fantastic food and walks on the moor.
Internal space-clearing, like feng-shui for humans, gives internal clarity and external protection. Such pre-Taoist shamanic practices include intense self-healing experiences and an immediate increase in awareness and focus.
Many people on this summer retreat have found self-discovery through silence, and how to let go embedded conditioning, harmonising with Nature in a beautiful countryside setting, feeling the healing power of Earth, and the resources to cope with the residual effects of past baggage.
The Retreat is guided with love and care, allowing space for discussion, regeneration, relaxation and multicultural celebration reflecting the diversity of the Tao, with QiGong and Tai Chi; Sweat-lodge, dancing and singing bhajans; swimming-pool, sauna, jacuzzi; walks on the moor, sunrises and sunsets; ritual and ceremony.
12th-20th August at Yelverton, Devon. Booking through Healing Tao UK. Step 1 is pre-requisite.
