Monthly Formless Taoism Lectures

As I like to tell my students, “Karma Hurts” sometimes. I still consider all these events my training – training on how to relate to people with real problems of mind and body and how to communicate to the very soul of sentient beings. There is a true difference of learning between that of books and even mentorship and self-discovery in the uncharted wilderness of learned mind and consciousness.

Formless Taoism lecture are held Monthly at Inner Strength, generally the third Saturday of every month ( Please check our calendar for the month before heading our way!  This 2 hour lecture provides insight on everyday life problems, from a Taoist perspective.

The teachings of Formless Daoism now contain my experiences of my formative training years combined with my training with my intense study with Jeffrey Yuen for the last decade.

From a written word perspective, Formless Daoism, sees the wisdom in the ontological cross between Theosis and the Huang Ting Ching, Korzybski’s Science and Sanity and the Tao Te Ching, The Tibetan Book of the Dead and the book of Enoch etc.

The teachings transcend monotheism and polytheism, transcendentalists and immanentists. It supercedes sect and dogma, as Emanuel Kant wrote in his 1784 paper, What is Enlightenment, …….“

Thus it is difficult for each separate individual to work his way out of the immaturity which has become almost second nature to him………Dogmas and formulas, those mechanical instruments for rational use(or rather misuse) of his natural endowments, are the ball and chain of his permanent immaturity.”

Formless Daoism is not about rituals (although there is nothing wrong with them at all) but more about teaching people how to celebrate their conscious union with the Dao moment by moment and paying homage in your conscious actions. It gives one tools to deal with illness, mental peculiarities and toughen people to embrace life and be happy with what you already have. Today, I assist people on their path in the same location that I developed my own skill set.

Formless Daoism is meant to be experienced and felt, never to be locked into stasis, but free to grow and evolve into an intrapersonal evolution assisting the embodiment of ones’ own spirit, towards a fulfillment of ones destiny.
