The Water Course Way of Balance


Wisdom of the Forest

August 3 and 4, 2019 - Sky Lake Lodge, USA

with Eva Wong

 

Seeds fall on the ground. Saplings grow into trees. Trees leaf, flowers bloom, and the forest grows. Through endless cycles of time, old growth is replaced by new, and the journey begins once again. The path through the forest is a pathway of wisdom. As we walk in the forest, we witness birth, growth, death, and renewal. In the magic of the forest, we see the seasons change; we mingle with the interplay of shadows and light; we bathe in the gentle sunlight dancing through the branches; and we dream in the primal darkness and wildness of the wood.

 

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.

The natural world as teacher
28 March 2020 at 9am till 29 March at 6pm. Dechen Chöling. France.
With Eva Wong

The natural world is the gateway to the Tao. The sun, moon, and stars carry the essences of the celestial energy of the Tao. Mountains, rivers, rocks, and earth carry the qi of the land. Trees, flowers, grasses, and animals are filled with life force. Clouds, fog, and mist display the interaction of yin and yang.


Join Eva Wong in experiencing the natural world in the beautiful hills and valley of Dechen Chöling. Learn how to find a place in nature where you can sit quietly, reflect, and be with the phenomenal world. Open your awareness to the energy of the land. Find out how to use the Chinese calendar to guide your diet, lifestyle, and activity as you move through the seasons.


The natural world is intelligent, luminous, and alive. It is the best teacher of the Tao. Let us learn from it.
