Intricately woven in Daoism is the healing arts which has significantly influenced the development of Chinese medicine.
Through the emphasis on the impact of nature with its seasons, geography, and fauna, as well as the responsibility of humans to care for themselves, one aspect of Daoism has evolved into Yang Sheng — the art of nourishing life. As such, these practices have aided individuals seeking wellness and healing with deliberate consciousness on how to orient and adjust their bodies to the rhythms of nature, aging, and self-purpose.
This talk will examine some of the facets of Daoist healing arts and ways to organize a practice toward wellness.
