I’m looking for people who study/practice/and or teach anything related to the Tao, who live in Toronto, Ontario Canada. It seems that I can’t find a community in my area who share the same interest, so if any of you guys know people or live in Toronto, Canada please do give me a shout out. I’m specifically looking for a teacher in the Toronto area to act as a guide, or students who are in the same path so we can share experience/wisdom/knowledge with one another. Thanks guys for your time.

Give Barbara Kerslake an email at “bkerslake at aei.net”. She lives near Yonge and the 401 and teaches some classes out of her home. She is a Senior Healing Dao instructor. She teaches from the Mantak Chia perspective. She is a nice woman with whom I started my journey into Daoism. She does not have a magnetic personality, so hasn’t attracted a community around her, but she could be a start for you.
I live in the Niagara region. If you want to come down sometime, we could go meditate and do qi gong in some natural power spots I have found.
If you want to email me, do so at “clarsen3 at cogeco.ca”.

Thanks for your reply and thank you for your kind recommendations. I will let you know when I head to the Niagra region so we can meet up. I’m currently quite new to Daosim. I have been all over the place from yoga, to buddhism, to christianity, osho’s work, to now Mantak and Michael’s work. I think I most prefer the Tao and it makes most sense to me, at this moment and point in my life anyways.
I have Mantak Chia’s Awaken Healing Energy through the Tao, and Awaken Healing Light. I want to get started on the microcosmic orbit, but I’m reluctant to rely soley on the books, I prefer to have a guide to ensure I don’t hurt myself. Instead I have just been doing the inner smile, 6 healing sounds, and chi self-massage, and I hope its okay to do those excerises without having done the microcosmic orbit.
I will contact Barbara and see how it turns out. Thanks again Chris!

On the link section here, look up Silent Ground. Minke De Vos is an HT instructor from Canada. She might have some work shops near you. I know she will be teaching a seminar at Tao Mountain this Summer.

hi thelerner, thanks for your feedback and suggestion! =)March 16, 2006 at 1:23 am #11438
If you have the chance get her CD’s. Her Tao Basics, Fusion I, and various breathing guided meditations are excellent.
