INNER SMILE: FREE Evening Meditation & Talk with Michael Winn
This fun evening is part of a weekend workshop, but is open to the public and can be taken separately. We will mostly smile together silently, relax from the “heart-mind” (xin) level of smiling in the body until the deeper “inner heart” or soul (ling) level of smiling spontaneously arises.
I will facilitate this with a transmission of that frequency of unconditional acceptance at the soul level. This is one of the most important and simplest self-cultivation practices you can learn and apply simply to daily life. Increased peace, self-love, and acceptance of others are the reward, with secondary benefits of healing all kinds of illness that is stress-caused.
Oct. 26 – 27, 2013 (Sat/Sun): Asheville, N.C.

Taoist Micro-Cosmic Orbit trains us to crystallize an Inner Pearl that matures into our Inner Sage and a reliable spiritual guide.
These two days are packed with powerful practices that can make major shifts in your health and energy level. They are Lifetime Treasures, simple enough to easily share with family and friends. They teach you how to communicate with the Life Force.
Open to everyone. This course is THE main pre-requisite to Fusion, Healing Love, Kan & Li. This is the best course to begin with, but also suitable for advanced adepts or people from other traditions wishing to go deeper.
Day 1: Inner Smile, Five Animals Qigong, Six Healing Sounds, Taoist qigong & inner alchemy theory.
