Taoist Wellness for Everyone
This website was created for all the people who want to enjoy the Taoist wellness from Wudang, in China.
Between heaven and earth, in the heart of the great Middle Kingdom, lies legendary Mount Wudang, silent witness of time and history. Beneath the mist of thousand years, through peaks and rivers, it shows us its secret of long past. Cradle of Chinese Taoism and origin of Taiji Quan, Wudang Shan tells a story of centuries, and charms with ancient temples and palaces!
Taoism (pronounced dow-ism) is an ancient philosophy indigenous to China. It emphasises living in harmony with Nature. Taoism is based on the teachings of Lao Tzu contained in theTao Te Ching. As the story goes, Lao Tzu was a wise man who lived in the city of Chengzhou (known today as Luoyang). Lao Tzu grew tired of the moral decay in Chengzhou, and predicted the kingdom’s decline. He decided to venture west to live as a hermit in the unsettled frontier at the age of 80. At the western gate of the city, he was recognized by one of the guards, who, recognising this wise old man, asked the master to record his wisdom.
Perhaps the greatest legacy of Taoism is the art of wellness. Wellness is talked about very much today, but what does it actually mean? What are the characteristics of Taoist practice? People often only focus on the well-being of their bodies, but Taoism offers a holistic approach of cultivating not only physical, but also mental and spiritual well-being.
Taoism teaches us to become aware of Qi (pronounced chee), the universal life energy that flows through and sustains all things. By becoming aware of the Qi within us, we can cultivate our Qi, learn how to let it flow unobstructed, and learn how to balance our own life force with the life force of other living beings and of Nature itself. Taoist wellness teaches us that true health and well-being comes from balance and harmony—with oneself, with others, and with our environment.
