Dao Yin (10 weeks)

Dao Yin (10 weeks)

In the Taoist tradition, the “mind” is elusive and many so-called “ways” or spiritual practices are approached through the corporeal as opposed to the psyche. Methods for attaining serenity address the relationship between mind (thinking) and emotion, and understand that the heart is a barometer for emotional stability. While the heart is difficult to calm directly, its rhythms are related and amenable to “breath”, and it is through breath awareness and breath control that emotional, and ultimately mental tranquility are attained. These training methods can be grouped under the aegis of “dao yin” practices.

The goal of this class to help the student develop a breathing curriculum that will help them alleviate anxiety and develop a more serene attitude toward life in general. A variety of breathing techniques will be introduced so that each student will ultimately discover and choose the techniques that work best for them.
