That which is still and at rest is easily kept quiet...
Let the Mind rest at Peace.
Returning to the source is Stillness,
Which is the way of Nature.
Internal Harmony = Smooth Energy Flow -
Gaining a flow of Smooth Energy, we may experience vital health and happiness:
The main focus in the practice of Taoist Qigong is the development and balance of ‘Qi’ Energy. Qi Energy can be viewed as ‘Universal Life Force’, and is the underlying essence of all life, development and creation.
When our Qi Energy is in balance, we experience more health, vitality, enhanced focus, greater memory, happiness and internal harmony. When our Qi Energy is out of balance, we may experience fatigue, chronic pain, lowered immune response, irritability, and so on.....
Leanring to work with your Qi Energy and bring your body's systems into balance is perhaps one of the greatest gifts you could give yourself in life.

The Human body is only Vitality, Energy & Spirit.
Vitality, Energy & Spirit ~ the 'Three Treasures'.

The Dragon is an image we find in many forms of Taoist Yoga, Qigong, Nei Gong, Tao Yin and the Martial Arts. The Dragon in Taoist Culture is a Mystical Pure Yang Animal - one that is Heavenly, Spiritual and Auspicious. The Coiling Dragon form seen here is one section taken from our Golden Lotus form training in the TaoYoga Arts System.
The Dragons motion is typically expressed in Taoist Yoga & Qigong Practice as having the qualities of : Coiling / Spiraling -- Open / Close -- Up / Down -- In / Out... these patterns of movement are both internal and external - expressions of the Yin Yang theory, not as a concept, but as a tangible somatic experience.
Our Coiling Dragon Form shown here in the above video can be seen to effect the Yin Energy Meridians in the legs, arms and also works to open the ascending Governing Vessel in the spine, and also the descending Conception Vessel in the front of the torso. The Opening of the Energy Meridian and creating a smooth,...
Naturalness is called the Way...
The Way has no name or form;
it is just the Essence...
just the Primal Spirit.
Essence and Life are invisible,
so they are associated with Sky and Light....
Sky and Light are invisible,
so they are associated with the two eyes.
The Celestial Mind is like a house;
the Light is the master of the house.
Therefore, once you turn the Light around,
the Energies throughout the Body all Rise.
Just turn the Light around;
this is the unexcelled Sublime Truth....

Opening the Energy Gates
In Qigong, Neigong and Taoist Yoga Practice 'Opening' is a big theme. We open Meridians, Energy Gates, and Energy Centers. The Energy Gates we may view as having an 'Inner' and 'Outer' aspect. We have the '5 Outer Gates' and the '9 Inner Gates'. The '9 Inner Gates' sometimes termed the '9 Caldrons' are the places where meridians connect in the body, and move from one area to another - for example for energy to pass from the arm into the torso, the meridians must pass through the Energy Gate located in the Shoulder Joint. The 'Inner Energy Gates' are usually located in the major joint spaces - or more specifically in the 'Empty Space' between the bones of a joint, and also found in the spinal cord. The Energy Gates often become blocked, and this can cause stagnant energy, stiffness, pain, emotional imbalance and limits the movement of Energy through the Meridian system....

The True Human Unifies with Nature and equalises all things.
The True Human is empty, yet is also everything.
The True Human is unconscious, yet is also everywhere.
The True Human of old slept without Dreaming, and woke without anxiety.
The True Human ate without concern, and breathed deeply.
The breath of the True Human arose from the depth of the feet - while the Common Human breathes in a shallow manner from the throat.
The True Human of old knew neither to love life, nor to hate death.
They offered no resistance.
The True Human of old received with delight anything that came into their life, and let go of anything that had been lost or forgotten.
The True Human’s mind was free from all thought.
Their way was one of stillness and silence.
Shining with simplicity.
The True Human was in Harmony with all things –
without any mind of knowledge.
