The Tao in Dublin

An evening of Taoist Secrets, hosted by Positive Life!

ad_both_web_dublin2017

A Very Special Evening!  Taoist Healing Love, Sex and Ecstasy!  How to unwrap the gift of love, to enjoy great sex through all the phases of life? By learning to combine the urgency of New Love, described in the classics as Heaven’s Dew, with the prolonged ecstasy of slow burning passion, the Art of the Bedchamber shows the way. However good you are already, yes, you can be a better lover! Whatever our secret fear, whether insensitivity or rejection, we can learn to overcome it. Some boil, some simmer, sprinters or marathon runners, non-starters or non-finishers, all can learn, all can benefit, all can enjoy! Whether we use these ancient but ageless techniques for tantric enlightenment or sensual gratification, it’s better together!  Our mission is to demystify the mystery, to share practical ways to infinite pleasure that every lover can learn.  Powerscourt Theatre, 22nd March.  Click here to book your place or email us for more info to positivenights@gmail.com

Kris and Anamarta share the Taoist Teachings with a love of Ireland: Anamarta fell in love with Dublin on her first teaching visit 7 years ago, and Kris a few years before. Now we both so much look forward to our annual visit to share these lovely practices, to enjoy your wonderful hospitality, friendship, love and loyalty – just as inscribed on the cup gifted to us on our first teaching here!

This Week in the Tao -For Men!

foundationstaoistpractice_men

Hello – I just wanted to share with the men – and women, please pass on to any man you feel might benefit – about some research I came across recently into an area affecting many men in these modern times.

The survey found that men in static jobs have lower libido and sperm count than those in active work, and even lower for men who spend a lot of time on computers and computer games. This is perfectly normal because blood and energy flow need air and movement. Blood makes the qi (energy) go round and we need a good healthy supply, to move from perfectly normal to perfectly natural.

The sages of ancient China said everyone is entitled to a hundred years of healthy life.  The idea is that by keeping the body healthy we keep mind, soul and spirit healthy too.  And to keep the body healthy we learn how to avoid losing energy.  As the old Taoists used to say, ‘If you want to understand the business of life, then you need to understand the business of where life begins, and where life usually ends.’

So I wanted to share these two events to increase knowledge and awareness of how we ourselves can take action to keep the Qi flowing and ourselves healthy and at optimum levels of health and vitality for peak performance at home, work and play.

Thursday March 2nd JADE ARROWS Evening with Kris. All Men Welcome, whether new to the Tao or had some experience already. 7.30 to 9pm Kentish Town Studio, 141-145 Kentish Town Road (Side Entrance in Castle Place), Camden, London NW1 8PB

Saturday and Sunday March 4th & 5th Healing Tao Foundations Step 1 for Men with Kris. Taoist Workshop for Men To turn Stress into Vitality for Peak Performance + Maximum Enjoyment @ Home, Work & Play. Both days 10.30am to 5pm. All Men Welcome, No Pre-requisites Kentish Town Studio, 141-145 Kentish Town Road (Side Entrance in Castle Place), Camden, London NW1 8PB

Come on by – I’m looking forward to sharing with you..

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Shamans

The Year of the Rooster began with a bang – or should I say a shout?  Don’t want to crow about the 10,000 Likes on our Universal Healing Tao facebook page, (although rather less than the Jade Circle®!!!) but certainly happy about the feather in our cap from an already-almost-fully-booked August Qigong Teacher Training in Portugal – just 3 places left!

Meanwhile, just ten days to go to one of our most exciting annual events: the 4-Day Introductory Workshop on the Secrets of Taoist Shamanic Healing, 17th through 20th February, ancient wisdoms relevant even today in our frenetic modern lives, as shown by feedback from previous years:

I loved this shamanic healing course. It reminded me of how powerful we really are in the world. There are so many ‘other’ worldly shamanic tools available to help us. I loved the Cosmic Qigong- Hands of Light… I felt my intuition and psychic abilities being fine tuned. Anamarta and Kris were amazing teachers – fully present and sharing their extensive experience of healing and of many different traditions, enriching the teachings. I would love to do the workshop again! MnG, Dublin

Secrets of Taoist Shamanic Healing workshop was another step forward in my Life, a great and favorable experience. Kris and Anamarta were really good shamanic guides and teachers. Here, I reaffirmed that I have a really good intuition overall, I learnt more about my inner Self and tools to protect it. Totally recommended! Elena, Edinburgh

Come on by and find out for yourself!

The Tao in Winter and a Peek at Spring

7-steptc_7feb17

Fellow Taoists and Friends in the Tao

Breathing in the blue light of Wisdom and Gentleness I reflect on the ancient incantation: the Element is Water, the Season is Winter, Time of Death and Conception.  The Organs are the Kidneys, Storehouse of  Ancestral Qi, and the Guardians are Turtle and Deer.
I love these traditions of the Old Ways, shared across our latitude.  Speaking of which, our cousins across the pond are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, in memory of when the ancestors of those they are brutalising today helped their ancestors survive the winter.  Let us share thoughts and prayers and good wishes for those standing like a rock in the face of betrayal.  As Plato said, Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle*.

Cosmic Healing is our last workshop of 2016 and I am very much looking forward to sharing the magic.  We still have a few places so jump in now – almost every workshop this year has been full!  Mantak made me Cosmic Healing Senior Teacher more years ago than I can remember (here’s our story continuing) and at the time I was determined to make the Tao my living – and I have, ever since.  Where there’s a will there’s a way, and mine is the Way of the Will!

The first event of 2017 is the next series of 7-Step Tai Chi, starting on 7th February at 7.45pm, so if you like 7’s this is obviously the seventh heaven for you (sign up now?) – or just come on by and learn something new, or develop what you’ve achieved, with new friendships for a New Year – yes, it’s the Rooster, Cock-A-Doodle-Doo!  Although we actually celebrate a few days before on 31st January with a Free Talk on Taoist Shamanic Healing, and a lovely Jade Circle on 2nd February.  The full Four-Day Workshop on Secrets of Shamanic Healing runs Friday thru Monday 17th – 20th February: a popular event being open to all, but also a pre-requisite for Step 5 Candidates, as indeed is the Tai Chi Summer Retreat and Training Camp in the heart of beautiful Lincolnshire in July (not to be confused with Qigong Teacher Training in Portugal in August.)  What an abundance of wonderful practice to fulfil mind, body and spirit!  Get Booked for Summer!

March, packed with Springtime:  Workshops for Men and Women in London and Dublin, in fact so much going on you can see it all here with a click, and I will keep you updated almost weekly!

Coming Up In The Tao


Fellow Taoists and Friends in the Tao!Autumn eases into Winter, Metal into Water, silver turns blue and warm breath blows cool clouds as we gird our loins for a change in mood and weather.
Metal the Element, that cuts and contains, reflects and inspires, mirror, cooking-pot, coin, sword, pen and ploughshare, the secret of alchemy morphs into water, the time of wisdom, the season of death and conception, awakening the guardians of our ancestral qi, storehouse of genetic energy.  Are you aligned with the perfection of the Tao – that everything is perfect?  that at the moment of conception we are gifted with life, a life of innate perfection, just waiting for us to live it.

After Healing Tao, it was Healing NLP that made the difference in my life, learning ways to help myself and others, and now I want to share it with you. Read all about my new 4-weekend Certified Practitioner Training here, course content, dates, investment, and videos of those who have already benefitted.
People like you do this training for one or both of two very good reasons: learning how to help yourself and or others succeed, achieve ambitions, fulfill desires, and solve problems, in short to make life better, whether at work or play, healing or business, to become more effective!

Autumn in the Tao

Harvest Time eases into Autumn, when the Element is Metal, that reflects and inspires.  Where will it lead you?  Action is the foundational key to all success. (Picasso) – watch out for ‘A WINNERS ALPHABET’, coming soon!

We had a wonderful summer, starting with Tai Chi Teacher Training in Portugal with great results (see below), followed a few days later presenting at the Boom, a huge international festival, biggest of its kind in the world: 33,000 people from 153 countries, over 200 workshops, hundreds of art installations, ecology exhibitions, and hours of dance!  We were amazed – over 1000 people filled and overflowed our workshops on Taoist Tantra and Shamanic Healing, and we even had between 50 and 100 at the 7am Tai Chi Sessions!  And 48 hours after our last presentation we were in Thailand for the four-yearly gathering of Healing Tao Instructors!

Now we’re enjoying a few days off on the magical island of Kho Pha Ngan, where we spent our first honeymoon nine years ago…a few things have changed but the beach is still the beach, the whitest sand and the clearest sea.
Looking forward to returning to London next week and launching into our exciting Autumn Programme, starting with 7-Step Tai Chi on 13th September – come on by and join us (details below).

Tai Chi Teacher Training 2016
Thank you so much for this life changing week! At the beginning of the year I did my oracle cards for the year as usual. July said Spiritual teacher. At the beginning of the week (when it was still July) I knew I had met two spiritual teachers, but by the end I started to feel I had met many spiritual teachers and also a wonderful cosmic family. Jenny

An amazing group ranging from martial artists to healers, grandmothers to teenagers.  The wonderful thing was that some had trained with us for years and done many of our courses, while others had never even met us before committing themselves to this week of intensive immersion in Tai Chi.
The energy you both share and build with the group and individuals has brought so much growth into my life and I’m always looking forward to continue sharing your presence and exploring your teachings. I’m feeling a lot of gratitude for where I am in this moment and I wanted to share my thanks with you. Alex
Congratulations on winning their Level 2 (Intermediate) Instructor Certificate to Diana Baynes, Cecile Chich, and Liz Kendall; on winning their Level 1 (Junior) Certificate to: Ben Adams, Simon Bowden, Mark Brockwell, Alex Cavey, Donna Houston, Cleuta Medeiros, Lisa Vilela, Jenny Wright;  and congratulations to those others who participated so wholeheartedly in what was for them an altogether new experience.  The future belongs to you!
Since I got back I have a big stamped  smile on my face! I couldn’t be happier for  my first acknowledgement and was just possible because the all support you 4 offered to us! You guys are amazing and inspiring teachers, I’m so please to be your student and friend. The course itself was well designed, time to everything; from  to study to relax to practice or to connect..and since taichi I seeing myself ward off incompatible energy that’s coming day by day, or welcoming and embracing the good, all with grounding and compassion.
I can’t wait for the Chi Kong next! Cleuta

Highlight Tai Chi Teacher Training

I have to say that this 2016 Teacher Training was a highlight in my teaching career which, so far, has spanned 55 years, the past 25 being Teaching the Tao.  And this highlight was brightened even more by a number of factors, first being the co-facilitation with my beloved partner, muse and inspiration, Anamarta of the Jade Circle.  It became ever clearer why the Taoist tradition of the Double-Master is so effective.

When we have settled back in our London nest in mid-September I shall post videos and pictures of this wonderful retreat including video-feedback from students and candidates.  Between now and then we have the amazing Boom Festival but more of that later.  Meanwhile, regardless of the teaching, the venue was outstanding: an ancient manor house still in the hands of the family who built it 300 years ago, and run to at least Downton Abey standard!  We even had our needs seen to by a Portuguese version of Mrs Hughes!

As for the food, well, mouth-wateringly delicious, five stars and three michelins would be an understatement.  Vegetarian cuisine with a lovely Portuguese flavour, prepared with love by…Isobel and Ze, in real life Anamarta’s mum and auntie.  Goodness me,  each meal was worth the trip!!  And the best news: they are coming back next year for the Qigong Teacher Training.

We were honoured to have the wonderful Sue Hix as guest teacher, sharing with us the mystical Tai Chi Double-Fan form she described – and then demonstrated – as combining the seductive grace of dance with the deadly intent of martial arts: feel the shivers up the spine!  Some of you have already posted beguiling images on Facebook and yes, as promised, I’m going to share the video – soon!

We also had a surprise visit from my friend and teacher Mr Tchi, who many years ago introduced me to the Flexibility and Balance exercises that add to the unique feel of our Tai Chi, and who took me to Penang to train with the amazing Master Lim, direct student of Professor Cheng Man-ch’ing.  Mr Tchi travelled from Morocco to share two enjoyable training sessions with us, and to remind me that I can still fly!!!

None of this would have worked without the presence and glorious participation of our students and candidates, an amazing group ranging from martial artists to healers, grandmothers to teenagers.  And the wonderful thing for  me was that some had trained with us for years and done many of our courses, while others had never even met us before committing themselves to this week of intensive immersion in Tai Chi.

So, congratulations on winning their Level 2 (Intermediate) Instructor Certificate to Diana Baynes, Cecile Chich, and Liz Kendall.  And on winning their Level 1 (Junior) Certificate to: Ben Adams, Simon Bowden, Mark Brockwell, Alex Cavey, Donna Houston, Cleuta Medeiros, Lisa Vilela, Jenny Wright;  and congratulation to those others who participated so wholeheartedly in what was for them an altogether new experience.  The future belongs to you!

Tai Chi with Kris and Anamarta

The Tao of Fire, Earth and Metal

As the seasons change we move from Fire to Earth, from High Summer to Harvest Time, and later to the Falling Leaves of Autumn.

Here comes August, with our Tai Chi Teacher Training in Portugal, now fully booked.  We are looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends, and to bringing you a report of new graduates and upgraded instructors.  It is an honour and a privilege to be facilitating this event!

Just a few days later, off to the Boom – the biggest international festival of its kind in the world. We are proud to be invited back as lead facilitators to start off this huge event on the morning of 12th August with Dragon Tai Chi from the East where things begin, followed on 14th by Tiger Tai Chi from the West, and on 16th by Eagle Tai Chi Meditation Facing Father Sky, all two-hour workshops celebrating the Shamanic theme of this year’s festival.

And then, on the evening of 13th August – 10.30 to 00.30pm @ Group Practice, TAOIST SHAMANIC TANTRA!
In the Taoist tradition of the Double-Master, Anamarta and Kris reveal secrets of the
Wheel’s application to Taoist Shamanic Tantra, accessing the Divine through Tantra, accessing the Divine through Sexual Ecstasy. Taoist Holistic Practice engages the mind, body and spirit to reflect the harmony of our inner universe in the outer world. As each person takes their place in the Medicine Wheel, the Double-Master leads through meditation, sexual and shamanic practice to project the most powerful energy of creation to attain goals, realise dreams and come by the short path to enlightenment.

We are also presenting HAWAIIAN SHAMANIC HEALING 14th August – 11 to 12.30am @ Puja, learning the way to heal ourselves, through love. The shamanic tradtion of Hawaii is Huna, the practitioners Kahuna, Mediators with Spirit. When healing is needed, the body-healer is called to give massage or herbs. If the sickness prevails, the Kahuna finds out from Spirit what healing the soul needs for the body to be whole again. Everything is a gift and a blessing, for everything is Love, and gratitude and thanks must be given even for hurt and pain. Then harmony can be restored between soul and body.

Each child is born of the Rainbow and there at death returns. We are born perfect and gifted by the gods with a calabash of light to illuminate our way. In our passage through this life we dodge or embrace the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, we give love, joy and kindness. Each sadness, hurt or wound given or received adds a pebble to the calabash, obscuring the light. Each joy removes a pebble, increasing our radiance. When our time comes to step back upon the Rainbow, the more light radiating from our calabash the sooner we can find our way home.
Anamarta and Kris each trained with their own Kahuna and now pass on the secrets of Huna healing, transmitted through the generations on the Island of Oahu.

All About the Boom!

And just a few days later we leap the lands and oceans to Thailand, for the four-yearly gathering with #MantakChia in the Tao Garden, followed by a well-deserved beach break in September before hurrying back to London for….
