What is the key to living a balanced life? It's easy to look at our busy schedules with family, work and friends and wonder, "How do I do it all?" Taoism provides a system to explore balance, based on our own unique situations within modern society.

Join 19th-generation Taoist lineage holder Eva Wong for an exploration of the Taoist teachings on balancing one's life. This innovative one-day program is based on Eva Wong's latest book, Being Taoist, Wisdom for Leading a Balanced Life. The day will focus on the pillars of a healthy and meaningful life: public, domestic, private, and spirit life.      

In addition, Eva Wong will introduce us to Taoist culture and lifestyle through tea appreciation, awareness practice, qi gong, individual and group contemplation to show how these teachings can be integrated into daily life.

Public life
Our world of community, workplace, and society.

Domestic life
Our family and circle of friends.

Private life
Our time spent cultivating our body and mind.

Spirit life
Our connection with the vastness of the visible and invisible world of energy, spirits, and the sacredness of all existence.

Dr. Eva Wong is a 19th generation lineage carrier of the Primordial Limitless Gate School of Daoism. The student of Sun Di, she is also a 3rd generation lineage descendant in Wang Xiangzhai’s Yiquan school of martial arts and Zhangzhuan–standing qigong. She is an independent scholar who has written and translated 16 books on Daoism and related topics, including Nourishing The Essence of Life: The Outer, Inner, and Secret Teachings of Taoism, A Master Course in Feng Shui, and The Tao of Health, Longevity, and Immortality.
