About the event

A dao yin and meditation workshop with Angela Liu, member of the British Daoist Association

In this introductory workshop, you will be guided through a set of dao yinexercises involving simple postures and self-massage. Cultivation of dao yincomes to fruition in meditation. This is expressed in the meditation posture which is stable, aligned and relaxed, allowing the qi to follow its natural pattern. Guidance will be given to help participants to establish a suitable sitting posture. Please bring meditation cushion and blanket/mat.

Angela has been exploring Eastern ideas and practices for over 30 years. She was first introduced to authentic Daoist cultivation by her acupuncturist and in 2008, she met her teacher Shijing (31st generation Daoist priest/daoshi in the Dragon Gate tradition, co-founder and main teacher of the British Daoist Association) with whom she has since regularly attended retreats and events ( as well as undertaking her own personal retreats, practising jing zuo (tranquil sitting) meditation and dao yin.  Over the years, Angela has become more deeply intimate with Daoist practices and teachings that shape and flow into all aspects of her life and inspires her work.
