Come to a spectacular mountain in New Mexico and learn all about Daoism, its history, worldview, representatives, and practices. Engage in a 10-day intensive retreat with renowned professor Livia Kohn, studying, practicing, hiking, and making new friends.
The day will begin with Qigong, Yoga, or Tai Chi. After breakfast we will study one chapter in Daoism and Chinese Culture, working our way through the history and main texts of the Daoist religion. Lunch follows, and a break period for resting, hiking, or more active practice.
In the afternoon, study a form of Daoist body cultivation, learning more than you ever wanted to know about Daoist meditation, breathing exercises, daoyin, qi-absorption, bigu (diets and fasting), sexual practices, and the like. How do they work? Where can we learn them? Are they like Yoga or different?
Evenings are given to relaxation and the open exchange of ideas and techniques.
One day is completely free for you to enjoy the mountains and sights of New Mexico.
Dates: May 24 June 3, 2007
Location: Bear Mountain Range, Cibola National Forest, south of Albuquerque
Price: $ 700.00 (includes room, board, tuition, and textbooks)
