How to Unleash Your Inner Alchemist!

Presented by Dan Vercammen

THE THREEFOLD UNITY & THE THREE LEVELS OF PRACTICE

Wuwei

 

“The Practice of Dao: Diminish Daily”

 

(Laozi's Daodejing/Book of the Way and Its Power, Chapter 48)

The studies program we created derives from three pillars and together they form a unity to make you an authentic version of yourself. We see TaoistStudies.Org as a "pond" where you can come and drink, rest and find inner peace. All our courses, workshops, seminars & classes share the common thread of internal alchemy and together they form your personal training program. Our Master or Taoist Arts degree program does not have a fixed duration, but you can assume a minimum of 3 years. Dan Vercammen can help you put together your personal trajectory from all the courses we offer. If you don't want to take exams, that's no problem, but then you can't get a degree. We don't put any pressure on our students: they are free to follow their own path.

THE THREEFOLD UNITY

&

THE THREE LEVELS OF PRACTICE

1. XING/THE BODY

Human Body

We have a shape, the body, with many

capacities, of which we use very little. We

start the practice with the body we have and

transform it so that we can use all its potential

and improve its health.

Cosmic Body

Once the body releases its inner power and

harmonizes its circulations, we are ready to

expand our body beyond its boundaries by

improving its connection with its surrounding:

society, the world, the macrocosmos/the

universe.

Dao

The body of Dao is shapeless, yet it creates all

shapes. Uniting one's body with Dao makes

you lose your limitations and enjoy creation.

That is your Authentic Self.

2. QI/THE CONNECTOR

Breath

We usually breathe very superficially and

make our body literally lack breath. Yet this

breathing is what we start to work with,

changing our breathing in a spontaneous way

by changing our body and mind.

Vitality

Once breathing becomes subtle, deep, soft,

and long, the body becomes stronger and

healthier and we increase our lifespan. Our

creative powers are released and body and

mind renew themselves continuously. We can

use universal Qi to live well and longer.

Dao

That which connects us with all else is

shapeless and empty, yet it is full of potential.

Through profound refining of Qi we become

Dao.

Then we find Authentic Breath.

3. YI/THE GUIDE

Thoughts/Feelings/Emotions

We are drawn to the outside world by our

senses and lose ourselves in a multitude of

often conflicting feelings, thoughts, and

emotions. We first need to understand how

thinking and feeling should work, so that we

can stay “inside” and at ease.

Open-Mindedness – Focus – Emotional Harmony

Once we get rid of internal conflicts we can

open up our minds and feel emotional

harmony, which makes us happy. We are not

led astray by thoughts and emotions and can

use pure focus to achieve what we want.

Dao

Yi guides us towards losing all that harms and

hurts us to experience the blissful harmony

that comes with uniting with Dao.

We call that Authentic Yi.
