Exploring Yin Taoist Meditation and Qigong for Women

For women; no experience needed.

Taoism contains an important tradition of female mastery that is inherent in its philosophy and practices. Women represent the cosmic force of yin, while men represent its yang counterpart. Together, these forces create the whole and keep each other in balance. The harmonious relationship between yin and yang is essential for good health and the stabilization of life-force energy, personally as well as in society. Women occupy a unique position in today’s world, stepping up and finding their voices and expression, strengthening yin in an overly yang world.

Whether you are new to Taoism or are a seasoned practitioner, join faculty from the historic Immortal Sisters Conference and learn

  • The ancient wisdom of Returning to the Tao
  • Ways to cultivate connection to your female nature
  • Qigong, tai chi, and meditation practices.

Return to your life grounded in yin and feeling renewed, refreshed, and strengthened.
