Home is where we find the Tao. Our home is simultaneously a sanctuary for personal enrichment, a work of art, and a way of living harmoniously with the natural environment as well as creating a space for domestic enjoyment. Join fengshui consultant Eva Wong in a workshop integrating the principles of fengshui and the treasured aesthetics of Asia in designing a simple yet elegant dwelling that nourishes the spirit, cultivates a harmonious lifestyle, and instills an appreciation of a quiet and contented life. Learn how to blend light and shade, yin and yang, and bring the quiet sensitivity of the seasons into your home to appreciate impermanence, transition, flux, and change. The home sets boundaries, but also within its space offers inner peace and freedom.


The Ways of the Earth and Sky

The Shamanic Origins of Taoism
Location: Sky Lake Shambhala Meditation Center
Date: June 10 Sunday 9am to 6pm

By: Eva Wong
No requirement

We are children of the earth and sky, with the sun, moon, and stars on our heads and the earth beneath our feet. The Taoist spiritual tradition is rooted in the ways of the earth and sky, the shamanic beliefs of early China. The sacredness of nature, the ecstatic union of the shaman and the nature spirits, the flight to the realm of father sky, and journeying into the dark womb of the earth mother are the foundations of many contemporary Taoist rituals. Join Eva Wong in exploring and living the sacred union of humanity with the waters, rocks, and trees. Practice Taoist rituals of bonding with the earth, climbing the sky ladder, and resting in communion with the forest and waters in the magic environment of Sky Lake.
This program will coincide with the opening the Kami (divine wind) nature shrine of Sky Lake Shambhala Meditation Center

The key to living a meaningful and healthy lifestyle is to balance our public, domestic, private, and spirit life. Public life is our life in the world of community, workplace, and society. Domestic life is our life with family and circle of friends. Private life is time spent in cultivating our body and mind. Spirit life is our connection with the vastness of the visible and invisible world of energy, spirits, and the sacredness of all existence.
Join Eva Wong for a one-day program on how to balance the four aspects of living using Eva’s recently published book Being Taoist and a specially-designed workbook that helps us to plan a balanced a lifestyle.
