Taoist Qigong Level 2 / El nivel 2 del qigong

con Acharya Dale Asrael

March 25, 2018

Taoist qigong is a spiritual discipline that cultivates body and mind simultaneously. Originally called taoyin, which means ‘guiding the flow of internal energy (qi), it has been practiced for over two thousand years in China. Laozi, the founder of Taoism, was said to have been the first to practice techniques of conserving, gathering, cultivating, nourishing, and transforming energies that are the source of a healthy body and a clear mind.

 The techniques of Taoist qigong were systematized during the Han dynasty (3rd century BCE to 3rd century CE) by the father of Chinese medicine Hua Tu. From then on taoyin, or qigong, has been incorporated into Taoist spiritual practices up to the present day.

The techniques of Taoist qigong can be divided into three categories – outer, inner, and secret.

  • Outer qigong focuses on physical strengthening.
  • Inner qigong focuses on nourishing the internal organs and gathering and conserving energy.
  • Secret qigong focuses on dissolving the duality of mind and body to merge with the primordial energy of the Tao.

No spiritual discipline is complete without integrating its formal practices into everyday life. In this respect, Taoist qigong advocates a lifestyle of simplicity and moderation, encourages the cultivation of generosity, compassion, and wisdom, and fosters the development of honor and respect for ourselves and the world.

Acharya Dale Asrael
Dale Asrael, growing up in a suburb of Washington, DC, studied music and dance and, even as a young child, ruthlessly searched for answers. Through her Jewish ancestry, she learned to celebrate the sacredness of life and, simultaneously be aware of the depth of human suffering. After completing university studies in film and Eastern religions, Dale moved to Canada in 1970, disheartened by the Vietnam War. Shortly after she took Refuge Vows at the Kagyü Center in Vancouver, British Columbia, Dale heard reports of a “revolutionary young lama” who was teaching about chaos and wisdom. She journeyed to Boulder to…
