A DAOIST PATH OF PRACTICE
Meditative cultivation of:
Daoism is known for its practices concerning the meditative cultivation of body (Xing), life force (Qi) and mind(Shen). The most important methods can be found in
the five secret schools Taijimen, Dandingmen, Jianxianmen, Fulumen and Xuanzhenmen. In Taijimen, the original school of Taiji, it is practised according to the three leading Daoist principles: non-desire (Wuwei) as the practice guideline, nature (Ziran) as the method and returning to the source(Fanben) as the goal. By this means, body, life force and mind are freed from their restrictions and developed to their wholeness in anatural way.
The present lineage holder of Taijimen, Fangfu, in 1989 opened the thousands of years old school to the public and in 1993 subsumed its contents under the new name Taijixue.
The theories and practices of Taijixue are communicated in the context of the
training system Taiji-Qidao.
The main practice in Taiji-Qidao is the original practice of Taiji. The ruling
principle for this practice is the attitude of non-desire (Wuwei). This means that
during the practice you put aside your desires and aims to come to rest
inwardly. In the state of non-desire natural influences (Ziran) take effect, which stimulate the flow of the life force.With regular practice the life force will be
strengthened and the meridians will be opened. Blockades in body, life
force and mind, which has been formed by the constraints of living in society, will be dissolved and our original state of intactness will be recovered (Fanben).
The practice aligns the practitioner with himself and with nature. The practitioner develops an access to abilities and insights that enable an ever deeper understanding of life up to the highest meditative realisation.The early stages of the practice involve spontaneous body movements.
For the practice transmissions are necessary to enable the entrance into the practice state and to ensure a progress into the right direction.
The introduction into Taiji-Qidao offers a weekend training course named Taiji-Qidao1. Here are taught the opening of the practice and the related philosophical theory. Also, the participants receive a first transmission, which empowers them to practise on their
own. Advanced training courses contain further transmissions, the consolidation of the practice and exercises to promote the perception and control of life force (Qi). In addition, training courses for other exercises are offered, which help overcome specific difficulties and develop particular aspects.
