Taoist Sweatlodge is a wonderful fusion of physical and mental purification, with Shamanic meditation. Guided with care and inspiration by Kris Deva North, co-author with Mantak Chia of ‘Taoist Shaman – Practices from the Wheel of Life,’ you can enjoy a weekend of new learning and experience. Come on by!
Tai Chi & Chi Kung from 7.30/8am to 5pm both days, Saturday and Sunday, with breaks around 9am for breakfast, 1pm for lunch. The Sweatlodge is on Saturday evening starting around 9pm, until about 11pm. We spend some time preparing the Sweatlodge after the Tai Chi programme.
Our Tai Chi & Chi Kung is a blend of the Hidden Masters secret defence techniques Kris learned from the late Master Lim in Penang, and the Tai Chi form of Kris’ Taoist teacher and co-author Grandmaster Mantak Chia. You will learn enough to take away and practise!
If you have never participated in a Sweatlodge you really have something to look forward to. It’s a blend of Native American and Taoist Shamanic traditions, originating as worship by smoke and purification by sweat.
Kris has facilitated Sweatlodges all over the world and his aim is to provide you with a safe and enjoyable experience. He will explain it all beforehand, from rituals and dedications to safety procedures. No experience is necessary, either for Tai Chi & Chi Kung or Sweatlodge. Kris is looking forward to sharing, with you, the practices he has enjoyed for so many years.
