Tao Basics Meditation, Qigong Practice and Associate Instructor Training

Weekend Retreat

with Senior Tao Instructors:

Marie Favorito and Sharon Smith

April 19-22, 2019


Enjoy a beautiful weekend retreat in the Berkshire Mountains! Join Senior Tao Instructors Marie Favorito and Sharon Smith for a weekend of renewal and rejuvenation.

Teaching will Emphasize:

  • The Microcosmic Orbit

  • The Inner Smile Meditation

  • The Six Healing Sounds Chi Kung

  • Training for New Instructors

Together your Instructors, Marie Favorito and Sharon Smith have over 50 years of experience in the Taoist arts! We guarantee that you will come away with a solid base for your practice of the Tao. 

The Inner Smile, the Microcosmic Orbit and the Six Healing Sounds Meditations guide you to freely move any stagnation or congestion, opening yourself up to the flow of Healing Energy. The focus is on generating, transforming and circulating internal energy. You will learn how to detoxify the organs, circulate your Chi (Life Force Energy) through two of the most important channels of the body,  and transform negative emotions into positive emotions.


Qigong practice increases your Chi (Life Force) and brings a sense of clarity and centeredness.  The basic premise behind Qigong is that your entire body is filled with channels or “meridians” through which energy or “Chi” flows.  While acupuncture uses needles to improve this flow, Chi Kung allows you to do it yourself by synchronizing your breath, movement, and the intention of your mind.
