From the mists of time, mankind has been exploring what it means to be a human being in this world and how we can reach our greatest potential as individuals and as a collective.

Among the most Ancient of those Inquiries of Self, we may find the Taoist Tradition. For thousands of years, those who practiced the Great Way of Tao in the high mountains of China, have gained a Profound Wisdom through practicing Inner Alchemy Meditation, Cultivating Universal Energy, and observing the ever changing Cycles of Nature. These Ancient Ones who followed the Great Way of Tao were called 'Taoists'  – or simply we may call them  'Followers of the Way.'

The Great Tao may be thought of as the absolute natural principle  which governs all things.  Tao is the Root of all Life and Creation.  

The Practice of Tao, is a Holistic Life Science - teaching one to Return to an Effortless  Harmony with Nature and one's own Body through Movement and Meditative Arts such as Qigong, Taoist Yoga, Neigong and regulated Breath Work.

As we Practice Tao, we may return to a wonderful state of Vital Health, Inner Harmony and Balance.

The Practice of Tao follows the Way of Natural Harmony - and includes flowing movements,  natural stretching, energy cultivation, meditation, breath work,  and Mystical Ways of entering into Union with Nature and the Cosmos.  

Welcome to come and join our Living Tao LIVE Online Video Archives -  and explore the Way of Practicing Tao - we have over 80 Pre-recorded Video Lessons for you to explore.  As we begin to Practice Tao together, we may Return to an Enduring Harmony within ourselves, and also help to bring Harmony back into the world,

Cleanse the Heart and Empty the Mind...

When one Stills the Mind all things shall be in harmony and balance...

By following the principle of Tao’s Natural Way,
all things can be done in a perfect manner.

                                     ~ Lao Tzu



Jesse Lee Parker - Your Instructor

 Hello my friend, I am very happy you have have found your way to our website.  I began studying the Taoist Healing Arts in my teenage years in Austin, Texas, and this journey began well over 30 years ago -  I left my home at age 17 - and set out on a personal quest, to seek out Taoist Masters and Mountain Mystics - Gatekeepers of the Ancient Taoist Arts of Healing and Energy Development - this journey culminated with me living for many years in the Sacred Mountains and Taoist Temples in China - undergoing training in sacred caves, extensive meditation retreats, and being initiated into the Mystical Path of Taoism and the Way of Golden Light Inner Alchemy.  In my teachings, I seek to express the core concepts of the Taoist Arts, and share my personal insights and experience in a clear, simple and easy to understand way. The Greatest Truth is often Simple, yet being able to follow Simplicity, is often the hardest thing for us to do.  Being based in Japan, I always felt a barrier limiting me in spreading my teachings - yet now,  with the Internet, we can reach out Online and share these Taoist Teachings with you through our Living Tao LIVE Video Archives.  By exploring are well over 80 Pre-recorded Video Lessons -  you can learn systematically and step by step, gaining awesome health and healing benefits - we will guide you to experience physical transformation, rejuvenation, and the process of Energy Awakening - giving you Greater Health, Inner Peace, and transforming your Body into a more youthful, flexible and vibrant state.  I look forward to training with you online, and sharing my experience of the Great Way of Tao...

Sincerely,  Jesse Lee Parker

- Internal Martial Arts -



We will now be offering a new regular lesson every month in the practice of the Neigong Training found in the Taoist Internal Martial Arts.

Neigong, as a term, refers to methods of Taoist Breath Training, Meditation, Inner Energy Work, and Spiritual Practice derived from the Tradition of Taoist Practice. We especially find Neigong Practice in modern times within the Taoist Internal Martial Arts.  

Neigong Training is commonly associated with the Three Internal Martial Arts of Hsing Yi, PaKua and Tai Chi. There are also Taoist Neigong Training Methods not related to the Martial Arts – such as those found in the Tao Yin Methods and also the Nei Dan or Inner Alchemy Meditation Training.

Neigong Training in the Internal Martial Arts emphasises the coordination of the individual's body with the breath, known as the harmonisation of the inner and outer energy (內外合一).  The repetition of the methods can help to guide the student to the state of Union of Breath and Body.

In this monthly class offering, we will slowly begin to introduce Neigong Training Methods from the Internal Martial Arts of Hsing Yi, Pa Kua and Tai Chi – class focus will be on developing greater health, flexibility, inner strength, mobility training and improving concentration.  We will learn a wide variety of Traditional and Time Tested methods.









Hsing Yi is similar to Taoist Meditation Practice....

Both have the goal of Gaining Emptiness.

But where we go from Inaction to Action, the Taoists go from Action to Inaction.

We borrow from the Taoists the 'Three Transformations' -

Transform Essence to Energy / Transform Energy to Spirit /

Transform Spirit to Emptiness....

With your advancement through these stages,

there shall occur 'Three Changes' in your body : 

1. Changes of the Bone.

2. Changes of the Tendons.

3. Washing of the Bone Marrow.  

To Change the Bones means you hold your body like a mountain.  When you stand and move, your bones shall become hard and strong.  To Change the Tendons is to fuse Energy into and through all the Tendons, forming membranes to them and energising them.  To Wash and Clean the Bone Marrow is to relax completely and purify and refine the Internal Organs by using your Mind, thus making your body light as a feather.

In the Highest Stage, Hsing Yi follows the Wind, and chases the Moon...

“What is Inner Alchemy...”


Alchemy is the Art of Transformation -  an arcane science that transforms common substances into something more valuable, such as converting lead which is a common metal, into gold - which is valuable and precious.  Often times in the Mystic Traditions the terms such as lead refers to our base energy or mundane consciousness, and gold, our Refined Energy, True Nature or the Celestial Mind.  This Art of Transformation is termed Alchemy, and has ancient roots which we may find in literature and art from many different cultures in Egypt, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

In the Taoist Tradition of Ancient China, we find references to two distinct types of Alchemy.  We find the ancient school of 'External Alchemy'  which was concerned with the transmutation of metals, minerals, and the combination of rare herbs to create a legendary composition - the 'Elixir Pill' of Immortality.  We also find the Taoist Tradition of 'Inner Alchemy'.  The Art of Inner Alchemy guides one to enter into Deep Meditationand focus on the cultivation, and transformation of our Inner Energy, Consciousness, and Spiritual Nature to form the 'Inner Elixir of Immortality'

Taoist Inner Alchemy is concerned with transforming the substance of the Inner Energy of the human being, into a Refined Quality  - which is True, Pure and Bright. This transformed energy, is gathered, and cultivated deep within the Original Center, an Energetic Field one develops over time, and through guided practice in Deep Meditation.

This transformation of the Inner Energy and Development of the Inner Elixir - will  bring one to gain an enduring state of internal harmony, vital health, rejuvenation and Union with Nature .

 Practicing the Art of Inner Alchemy, one may also begin to develop Inner Wisdom, Clarity, and feel closer to Nature.  During our monthly Living Tao Online Lessons, we will learn the Foundation Methods of Traditional Taoist Inner Alchemy Practice as found in the Northern School of Taoism.  We will also share the related theory, key concepts, symbols and the Stages of Advanced Development one may move through over time.  Real Practice takes Time, and one must be Patient, and have the quality of Perseverance to maintain the course of development.  We have a very large lesson archive online, and students make learn and practice at their own pace.

During our monthly lessons, practicing the Taoist Arts, we will help to guide you with Authentic Practice Methods, bringing you the wonderful benefits of self transformation, vital health and inner peace.  



What students are saying...  

*The transformation I’ve experienced from Taoist Yoga & Qigong practice with Jesse has been incredibly supportive in my life.  After having taught Hatha Yoga for over ten years, and been practicing a variety of styles with a range of teachers since I was a child, I had been yearning for some guidance into more subtle and energetic approaches. I came across Jesse and the TaoYoga Arts System and so resonated with the way Jesse relates these ancient Taoist Alchemical Practices in such an accessible way.  From developing and nurturing the energetic aspects of myself, my body is feeling as vital as ever, and I’ve reached the most sustained level of calm and happy emotionally and centred mentally that I’ve ever felt.
- Sally, Australlia
* I haven't enjoyed a practice so much since I discovered isometric exercises decades ago. Thank you Jesse.
- Ali, USA
*  Going through this program feels like an injection of energy..!  I have restarted things in my life I thought I was not able to do again… Like playing volleyball non-stop for 3 hours ! Just amazing.  I would like to continue this practice everyday for the rest of my life.    
- Gabriel, Brazil
*  I am loving the program!!  The course is so well constructed.  Clear, easy to follow videos, an emphasis on the practical but with enough supporting theory for a beginner like myself. All in all, this course is a beautiful introduction to Taoist Yoga. I am so happy to have found this course.  
- Lin, USA
* This Program felt very simple and clean in a refreshing way. It was not overwhelming or over complicated. I loved hearing this with new ears in ways that, to me, was delivered in the manner of one friend gently presenting a beautiful gift to another.  Wow… 
- Shelby USA

Opening the Energy Gates

In Taoist Qigong and Neigong practice we are taught one aspect of the Energy Body which are termed the 'Energy Gates'. The Energy Gates are the places where meridians connect in the body, and move from one area to another.  Energy Gates are usually located in the major joint spaces - or more specifically in the 'Empty Space' between the bones of a joint. The Energy Gates often become blocked, and this causes stagnant energy, stiffness, pain and limits the movement of Energy through the Meridian system.

In the Living Tao LIVE Online Lessons we will learn specialised movement and stretches to physically open the main joint areas in the body.   When these joint areas are open,  the Energy may run smoothly through the whole system. Opening the Energy Gates is a very special aspect of our training method.

When our Energy can run smoothly - with no blockage in the Joints and the Energy Gates - we gain Vital Health, Healing, have MORE Energy, feel young, vibrant & full of natural joy in life.  

Come join the Living Tao LIVE Online Video Archives -  to experience learning Taoist Qigong, Neigong and Inner Alchemy Meditation with us.

What students are saying...  

* What I like about Jesse is his authenticity and ability to show compassion and love to the people around him.  Those kinds of qualities are extremely rare to find and I value how they were brought into each training session and our daily lessons in our retreat. Jesse has an in depth understanding about not only the how but also the why when it comes to the Taoist Arts and Training. This makes for fun and interesting theory lessons, which give clarity and understanding to the Taoist Practices themselves.  I would highly recommend Jesse as a teacher, and I look forward to working with him more in the future.
- Kevin, Australia
* Jesse's knowledge and experience both from his time in China and from his personal healing journey are incredibly profound.  The teachings resonated deeply with me and surprised me in how elaborate and beautiful they were.  For me the training with Jesse was the missing link in my personal practice - Taoist Yoga and Qigong provided the central elements, provided the Center.  The teachings are authentic, coming from a long lineage tradition, and powerful, without being forceful or unnatural to the practitioner. The instructions and techniques seem simple but they gain depth the more one practices. The training has made an enormous difference to my personal practice - adding clarity, balance and centeredness. 
- Lancia, Spain
* My experience training Taoist Yoga and Qigong with Jesse was nothing short of rejuvenating and beneficial. Jesse is a great and knowledgeable teacher, I have learned a lot. 
Highly Recommend this Training...
- Tagan, NYC
* Jesse's Taoist Yoga and Qigong is an amazing experience back into the Ancient Practices of China’s Taoist past.  A skilful blend of mudras, breath work and postures.  My experience training was wonderful and healing.  I have not found anything like this before, highly recommended..! 
- Todd, Sweden 

In harmony with Tao, the sky is clear and spacious. the earth is solid and full, all creatures flourish together in harmony.

Return is the movement of the Tao.

Yielding is the way of the Tao.

One who is in harmony with Tao is like a newborn child...  soft and flexible; full of vital power.

complete in its harmony.

~ Lao Tzu

The Golden Mean 

The Practice of Tao follows a specialised method that rejuvenates and brings one back to a Harmony with Nature and the Great Tao. How is this done..?  The Ancient Taoists uncovered the Unified Energetic Pattern of the Universe - and this Pattern was termed the Golden Mean. It is the Unified Energy Field, which is in a State of Supreme Balance.  When we are able to Return to this State of the Golden Mean - we shall naturally, and without effort, heal, rejuvenate and renew ourselves - literally Returning to a more Youthful, Harmonious and Vibrant condition.  This is done through a process one enters into through the Practice of Inner Alchemy Meditation - In Alchemical Terms, this is the Stage of 'Gathering the External Medicine.'  The 'External Medicine' is the Energetic Substance which is at the root of the Process of Reversal, which leads one to Rejuvenation, Self Healing, and beginning the Alchemical Process of  -  'Spiritualisation' -

Dedication to my Father

My father, Kenny Wilson Parker, passed away on April 14th, 2019.  He was such a wonderful inspiration and influence in my life, and always encouraged me in my study and pursuit of the Taoist Arts.  My father organized my very first workshop in Austin, Texas, over 18 years ago, and during that time, he gave me such valuable coaching and encouragement when I was first beginning to teach Taoist Yoga and Qigong.  I often feel that during that Summer, if my father had not pushed me to begin teaching, I would not have the life I live now - teaching and sharing the Taoist Arts with the world.  I am very thankful for my father's patience and guidance in my life. 

I would like to dedicate this project of Living Tao LIVE Online Lessons - to the loving memory of my father.

Thank you Pops for all your Love, Guidance and Support in my life...
