Workshop Details

Within us is a wellspring of vitality known as qi waiting to amplify every aspect of our lives. Taoist practices embrace all aspects of the self — physical, energetic, sexual, emotional, and spiritual. Alchemy is the integration of these layers of ourselves, and through this process bliss and ecstatic experience blossom from within.
Alchemy is described as the art of transforming lead into gold. In the context of this workshop, gold represents the qi that manifests as vitality, passion, presence, and love. With the guidance of senior Taoist teacher and qigong instructor Lee Holden, we will explore ancient Taoist practices to help us work with this subtle energy for increased passion and intimacy, improved health, emotional balance, and spiritual development.
Through a combination of lecture, qigong movement, meditation, and partner exercises, we can discover practical tools to improve our everyday lives by learning to tap into the power of our own qi, balance it within, and feel connected to the divine.
The workshop also includes instruction in Taoist sexual secrets for abundant vitality, intimacy, and compassion. You will be taught techniques for expanding orgasm, refining sexual energy, and developing the alchemy of love and gratitude. Open to couples and individuals.
Recommended reading and listening: Holden, 7 Minutes of Magic, Taoist Sexual Secrets and Qi Gong for Health and Healing (CD).
