Daoin — Activate the Self-healing powers

Huatuo is the most famous physician in the history of Chinese medicine. After having collected several approaches and traditions studying the natural way of preserving health and nourishing life, he combined them with his medical knowledge. So he achieved a longevity formula in form of a practice of body exercises that increases the perception of the own energetic body. This sequence of movements he compiled is transmitted in the living line of succession «The Five Animals Daoyin Arts of Huatuo». We will have the opportunity to meet and practice with the master of the 79th generation of this line. You will study this practice with the master of the 80th generation Dr. Alejandro Penataro, one of the first Europeans received the title of master of the tradition of Huatuo.

Alchemical Secrets

The pearl of Chinese medicine is the so-called Outer Daoist Alchemy. This refers to secret compositions made, in most cases, on the base of traditional herbal recipes with the help of special treatment that boost up their effects. Their purpose is to launch in the body and in the personal energetic resources the processes of recovery and rejuvenation. They achieve the elimination of the blocks accumulated in the body so it can be accompanied by the release of emotional stress. Optimal tool to recover from burnt out phases.

You will carefully pass through the experience of liberation in a relaxed meditative state.

Authentic Daoist Heritage

The Daoist traditions and Chinese medicine have undergone difficult times in Mainland China, during the Cultural Revolution. The most fully authentic traditions are preserved in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia, whereas Taiwan has had the leading role in the conservation the greatness of Chinese civilisation’s cultural achievements.

Taiwan was the place where the cultural, scientific and political elites left during the Civil War. Today, Taiwan is, perhaps, the main place where you can get in touch with genuine ancient traditions, still meaningful and with a lively spirit.

I was in the one of the first, more like experimental, group that visited Taiwan. This has become for me huge geographical discovery of the place I have never been before and enormous spiritual discovery of massive layer of knowledge about human being, firstly about myself. Alejandro was showing us real Taiwan, that is hardly seen by tourists, all teaching was in the way of friendly discussion, and results of obtained knowledge could have been tested right away out in the street.  5 animals exercies under rain, stunning temples where every single spot is full of ancient knowledge, meeting great masters, Chinese dumplings with crazy fillings… All this and many other things got melted into giant piece of experience that transformed me and allowed to know myself much better.
