    Isabelle Robinet's Taoist Meditation is the first and only scholarly study to discuss the ancient Mao-shan Taoist tradition of visionary meditation while, at the same time, helping to clarify the little understood relationship among the early Taoist classics, the Buddhist tradition, and the later Taoist religion.

This concise and reliable introduction to Taoism brings a fresh dimension to a tradition that has found a natural place in Western societies. Combining Taoist sacred texts with current scholarship, it surveys Taoism's ancient roots, contemporary heritage and role in daily Taoism's spiritual philosophy to its practical perspectives on life and death, self-cultivation, morality.

    The Chinese Watercourse tradition of Taoism uses water, which ‘takes the form of the objects it touches’ as an analogy for our meditation practice and a way of accessing the Tao.

The training is augmented with exercises in body and mental awareness from the Taoist tradition. This workshop is scheduled for May 8,9,10, , at Shambhala Mountain Center. See the program below. Phase 2 of the Series consists of 4 modules of training in strategy and tactics based on the Chinese strategy classic Sunzi’s Art of War.

      Most Chinese scholars have thought of Taoism as a degenerate philosophy — something that once had to do with Laozi but ended up with a bunch of charlatan tricks. Today it seems different. The Chinese faced this problem; and under the impact of the Taoist philosophy in which the One and the Many supplement each other and embrace one another, the Chinese Buddhists developed a doctrine which can be translated as substance and function.
