Strategies for Health
March 30,31 2019 Szczecin, Poland - Daily 9am to 6pm
with Eva Wong
To be aware of the body’s energetic environment is the key to good health. As it is externally, so it is internally. The structure of the physical world parallels the energetic world of our body. If we can identify the energy centers and pathways of the human body, we can develop strategies for clearing blockages that prevent internal energy (qi) to run smoothly and peacefully within.
The Mysterious Female
August 5 (evening) to 8, 2019 - Sky Lake Lodge, USA
With Eva Wong and Dale Asrael
“The Valley Spirit that never dies is called the Mysterious Female. The gates of the Mysterious Female are the roots of the sky and earth” - Laozi’s Daodejing
What is the Mysterious Female? It is the Tao, the Dark Womb, and the source of all that is born and unborn. This source is the primordial qi, the vapor of life. In birth, we emerge from the Mysterious Female, in life we are nourished by her, and in death we return to her embrace. Central to the practice of Qigong, the Taoist art of health and longevity, is the cultivation of this life-giving energy. Connecting to the breath which carries qi, clearing the meridians, strengthening the physical body, and resting in the stillness of the Womb are the key to living a healthy and virtuous life. The feminine in the Dao is manifested in the nourishing quality of the qi, while the feminine in the Buddhist tradition is manifested as the love and compassion of Tara and the spacious wisdom of Prajnaparamita.

Enter the Taoist and Druid traditions of forest wisdom with Eva Wong as wanderer, gatherer, warden, and witness. Meditate in the woods, listen to the messages of leaf, branch, root, water, and stone, and walk the Chinese and Welsh calendars in your journey through the forest. Climb your body’s tree of qi, rising from the energy of the roots through the trunk up to the crown. Discover and witness the balance, bounty, beauty, and power of the forest in the magical environment of Sky Lake Meditation Center.
Being Strategically Kind
Nov 11, 2018 Berkeley, CA, USA - 9am to 6pm
With Eva Wong
Acts of kindness are limitless. How we use kindness in an effective way requires skill. In this workshop, we will use principles of strategy outlined in Sunzi’s Art of War to plan and execute actions that are both wise and kind. While most people associate The Art of War with competition and aggressive actions in the military and business world, this workshop will show that the same skills can be bent toward building cooperation, trust, and respect. Using principles from Sunzi’s Art of War, we will learn how to apply and propagate kindness in a strategic and skillful way.
