What is Dao?
Dao, translated to Tao, is an ancient Chinese philosophy that is the absolute principle underlying the universe. It combines the principles of Yin and Yang and signifies the way (or code of behavior) that is in harmony with the natural order. Dao is the natural phenomenon and spontaneous happening that cannot be named or described, nor twisted. Dao is the wisdom, the intelligence of human behavior, and the Way. You win if you go with the flow of Dao, and likewise the opposite is true, you would have more problems if you go against the flow of Dao.
Daoist practice has two parts: a philosophical part and a religious part. In China Daoism is practiced religiously throughout temples. However, the majority of practitioners focus on the philosophical side of Daoism, and now it is practiced all over the world. This philosophical side is the area that our organization Tai Chi & Qi Gong Healing Institute focuses on.
