Your Instructors, Marie Favorito and Sharon Smith together 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. 


This 3-Day Weekend Retreat at Angels Rest on October 9-12 will surely bring the mystery and healing power of chi alive for you while you build a more intimate relationship with your energy and return to your daily life renewed!


Taoist Meditation is a really down-to-earth practice that generates, transforms, and circulates internal energy. The Inner Smile, the Microcosmic Orbit and the Six Healing Sounds Meditations guide you to freely move any stagnanttion or congestion, opening yourself up to the flow of Healing 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.


Chi Kung practice increases your Chi, (Life Force), and brings a sense of clarity and centeredness.  The basic premise behind Chi Kung 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.


Attention Associate Instructors Candidates: This weekend retreat is important training for those Universal Healing Tao students interested in becoming Associate Instructors (first level of instructor certification).  If your intention is to train for UHT Certification now or in the future, this workshop is a MUST! Students who already have the prerequisites may be eligible for Associate Instructor Certification. Marie and Sharon will make these determinations after the weekend.
