The Method of Guarding One's Life According to Lao-tzu

A 10-lesson course delivered by email


Course description

As the title says, this course is about guarding our life.

Confronted with the new enemy in the form of a deadly virus, we have but little to do to fight the danger, as long as our Western medicine doesn't provide any means to stop the infection.

This is why we thought to create a course inspired by the millennial Taoist wisdom on the method of guarding one's life.

In short we teach you the method and offer further resources to continue your study.

Course difficulty: Advanced

Course required resources: You may need to take our Initiation into Taoism course (if you didn't) to familiarize with the Taoist thinking and concepts, prior of attending this one.
