“Secret of the Golden Flower” A 10-week online study with simple but profound meditation practices from this ancient Taoist text.
THE SECRET OF THE GOLDEN FLOWER, is one of the eternal sources from where we can receive inspiration and precise instruction on how one can find the door to return to their innocence and happiness, where one can return to the divine within.
This ancient Taoist treatise, more than twenty-five centuries-old clearly points the way with complete instructions and advice on simple but profound practices, how we can become free from the blindfold of mind and emotions, so we can live a life of pure and lasting contentment in all circumstances.
The Golden Flower symbolises the full flowering of a human’s consciousness. It works with the seed of our potential (which is surrounded by ignorance), to Oneness, the Full Flowering of human Potential and Perfection.
In Yoga, The Golden Flower is known as Sahasara (Thousand Petalled Lotus Flower) and in Patanjali’s Eight Steps of Yoga system, it is the final step called Samadhi.
It shows the way a practitioner can break out of one’s seed of potential and how to allow the seed to sprout and then bloom into one’s Golden Flower!
The Secret of the Golden Flower translated by Richard Wilhelm will be the text used. Together we will study and practice this powerful transformative Taoist inner alchemy.
The energy path associated with breathing has been described as similar to an internal wheel, vertically aligned with the spine. When breath and awareness are steady, the wheel turns on its own accord, with one’s energy rising up through the spinal cord, automatically, up through the chakras to Sahasara.
The study format will be the same we used last winter, in the highly successful zoom studies of the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
