THE ART OF LIVING
TAO & QIGONG
for a deeper connection to life
About the training
The basic goals of the training are self-healing and vitality, personal development and spiritual growth.
After 40 years of Taoist practices, mystics and inner alchemy, Carsten Dohnke has developed a training in which you increasingly connect with your body, your inner strength and life itself. You discover your inner healing potential and deeper layers of consciousness, in all kindness. And you will go through a program for a younger, stronger and more flexible body.
This training is for you if you are open for a deep transformation and wish to make your own experiences. You will receive tools that will help you to release stress, connect with your own resources and your inner core. You will also learn to deepen your relationships, to heal or support others, to unfold your inner potential and find ways to deal with daily life topics.
For those, who are interested, the training can also serve as a basic training to become a Qi Gong Teacher, covering about 200 hours. Please see details below.
The best of both worlds
Each module is an own story and contains a diverse combination of moving Qigong, meditation, Taoist practices and healing, silence, mantra practices and theory. This combination helps you to strengthen your life energy (Qi), to develop inner stability and strength and to become more vital, clearer and healthier. At the same time, the methods help to increase inner flexibility and serve as a bridge to enter greater inner freedom.
… meets West
As for the western approach, you will learn practices for stress relief, shadow work and self-reflection.
Moreover communication techniques and field work will enable you to open up to the creative ‚knowing’ field.
This will give your inner process extra support, in your daily life, in contact with others, and while unfolding your own creativity and your spiritual path.
All the separate practices come together during the process, becoming one new wholesome piece.
“Tao and Qigong - The Art of Living” is a training in the Taoist traditions of healing, meditation, movements, philosophy, nutrition, enlightenment and (self)-development.
Carsten Dohnke will share his knowledge in the tradition of Inner Alchemy and the mystical way of the Tao, supported by western approaches of inner development and stress relief. The training also offers a special programm for a stronger, younger and more flexible body.
You’ll practice and learn a wide range of meditation and healing techniques, effective qigong forms and mystical techniques. The training also includes Mantras and Sounds, the Tao of communication, Taoist sexual practices to transform your libido into healing power and spiritual energy, inner structure work, easy movements from inner martial arts, the foundations of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and taoist & buddhist philosophy.
The training is an inner journey of healing, self-awareness and growth - a journey to your inner core.
You will receive a comprehensive set of tools that can be combined to an individual exercise program for your own practice. In case you want to become a teacher, you can combine the tools depending on the different target groups.
Supported by Sound & Mantra
In addition - during each seminar day - Carsten will give a sound & mantra healing, which enables you to fully relax and to get in contact with your inner core.
It will help you to feel supported in life, let go of old patterns and fears and to develop inner faith.
