Ancient Taoist Medicine is a living, incarnate map. Practices that arise from an esoteric wisdom tradition reaching from the very root of life. The medicine and teachings are passed from teacher to student, practitioner to patient. As the acupuncture points are brought alive, in some cases repaired, the conversations between Heaven, Earth, and the Human Being are restored.  

In a time of crisis on Earth, we increasingly face the experience of severance from the natural order. Communication has become conflicted as the ecological and spiritual crisis deepens in the fabric of life. The damage to the weave of life in all life forms is without precedent in our history. And with this also comes the devastation to the heart of humanity: confusion in relationship to the Sacred, to our Earth and to ourselves.  

Taoist medicine and practice address imbalance on the level of body, mind, and spirit. The Songs of Creation remember and restore the communication and resonance of the spirits. They are restored internally, and in time, through the individual, offered back to creation.

All are welcome.  Free of charge.
