What is Jade Temple?
Jade Temple Taoist Feminine Arts is a synthesis of sexual energy cultivation and radical self care through the ancient Taoist traditions. The wisdom garnered in Jade Temple is a synthesis of Mantak Chia’s work filtered through the more feminine lens of my personal experience and practice. It also includes my studies with my father Willow Seronko and his wisdom and lineage with Master Henry Wang in the arena of Qigong internal alchemy.
Taoist arts have a deep focus on being in harmony with nature and Her cycles of dark and light, death and birth, male and female, active and receptive, Yin and Yang. Tao literally means ‘The Way’. It is the flow of life in this very precious moment. There are no external Gods or Goddesses in Taoism, nowhere to go, and nothing extraordinary to be. It is a pure, simplistic and beautiful philosophy of balance in all things. In the practice of Taoist arts we use internal alchemical practices to harmonize body, mind and spirit for a greater experience of peace, health, wisdom and longevity.
In the Taoist tradition sexual energy is known as Jing. It is the powerful energy of creation, and when harnessed and cultivated leads to a long life full of joy, vitality, youth, radiance and pleasure. In Jade Temple we work with foundational Qigong practices to prepare the body for the warm sexual Jing energy. Working with our Ovarian energy we then learn to sense, awaken, and circulate our vital sexual energy through all the organs and cells of our bodies, increasing our capacity for pleasure, radiance, and self knowledge. Through the sacred and foundational Taoist practice of the Jade Egg we tone and tune into our sacred Jade Gate (yoni) and womb space. The Jade Egg practice helps to bring more sensitivity, juiciness, versatility and strength to our Yoni and Womb, while cleansing, purifying and balancing these sacred chambers.
The deepest intention of these sacred practices is radical self love, empowerment and self care; uniting the heart with the womb and yoni through deep presence, sensitivity and nurture.
And so we begin...
Our Jade Temple Online Initiation will occur over two moon cycles from the full moon of July 27th, to the full moon of September 24th so that we may feel the cycles of Yin and Yang within the duration of our practice together. The moon is a great feminine representation of these cycles within our own bodies and sexuality. The full moon represents the energy of our fertility, our sensuality and our most vibrant and radiant selves. We will begin and end our journey anchored in this experience of fullness, as this journey is indeed one of returning to our wholeness.
Over the moon cycle that the Jade Temple will be held, we will journey through four gateways, each being a week long:
Module One: Cultivate Good Chi
In this module we begin the journey into the great lineage of Taoist Female Sexual Energy Cultivation. The Taoist system is a very ancient and rich system, and so we begin by honoring the lineage of these practices and preparing our bodies to work with hot sexual energy. In order to work with this energy, we must first cultivate good Chi by purifying and cultivating the energy of the body. In this module we begin to warm up the system in order to work with the sexual energy, or Jing in the following module.
In this Module:
Deepen your understanding of Taoism, Yin and Yang and the benefits of these practices.
Learn the Taoist Self Chi Massage and Spinal Warm Up
Cleanse and Tonify the Organs with the Six Healing Sounds Meditation
Taoist Five Elements Theory
BONUS: Full Taoist Five Elements Qigong Practice
Module Two: Source Your Essential Energy
Now that our bodies are ready to work with denser and more powerful sexual energy, we begin to learn how to source, cultivate and circulate this powerful energy for radiance, vitality, libido, and spiritual awakening. This module is possibly the most important of all!
In this Module:
Learn Breast and Ovarian Massage
Clear the energy of the Womb and Ovaries with Womb and Ovarian Clearing
Cultivate Jing Sexual Energy through Ovarian Breathing and Packing
Circulate Jing Energy throughout the body with the Microcosmic Orbit and store the energy with the Pearl Meditation
BONUS: Orgasmic Upward Draw: Working with aroused and orgasmic energies
Module Three: Jade Egg as ally
In this module we begin to take everything we learned in module two and add the Jade Egg practices to enhance the energetic flow. Our practice becomes a bit more physical than energetic as we learn to create strong and dynamic yoni muscles in order to better seal and channel our sexual energies. These practices also bring more blood flow to the yoni nourishing the tissues and increasing lubrication, and can also help to sensitize the yoni for greater experience of pleasure.
In this Module:
Learn how to prepare the egg and the benefits of this practice
Sipping the Egg, how to introduce the egg into the yoni
Laying down Jade Egg excercises
Seated and squatting Jade Egg exercises
Standing Jade Egg exercises
BONUS: Jade Power Practice
Module Four: Tend Your Yoni, tend yourself
In this module we bring everything together and explore even deeper practices of self-care and tending through the Taoist tradition. This whole module is packed with bonus material!

Combining many threads from her father, as well as Mantak Chia and other teachers from the Healing Tao Lineage over the last decade, her practice of Taoist Female Sexual Energy Cultivation has flourished and opened up new awareness and embodied experiences that have transformed Halo's life and way of being in profound and beautiful ways. From the depths of her own experiences and her passion for these teachings, Halo has been teaching for 6 years online and internationally.
Her mission with Shakti Temple Arts is to offer keys to unlocking the soul’s yearning for expression of it’s innate divinity and wholeness in THIS life, and in THIS body through these time tested lineages of embodiment, consciousness, health and beauty practices.

What others are saying
Halo has been an absolute blessing to me personally as well as to our Goddess Temple of Ashland. I adore being in class with her. Halo's delivery of ancient Taoist sexuality knowledge is incredibly palatable, organized, doable, and joyful. She presents herself beautifully... On all levels... Her grace, radiance, and professionalism create a sacred container to open easily to learn. I am so grateful for her Presence. ~Graell Corsini, Founder and Co-directoer of the Goddess Temple of Ashland, Ashland OR
I have had my jade egg for a couple+ years and I’ve gone to another class or two before, but last night I feel I had a break through in conscious awareness within myself with your gentle and thorough guidance. Quickenings of micro-movements occurred last night for me which previously were pure imagined activation. I feel inspired and prepared to play and experiment with my jade egg in a new and enthusiastic way.
I woke up feeling deeply revitalized from our magical evening, warm and fuzzies as if from meeting a new lover.....my most long-term one yet....ME!
I am grateful for our resonance and appreciate your way~~~so clean, crisp, embodied and healing for me. Thank you for bringing your work to this community and sharing so perfectly the way.~ Marina Hartnell, Doula & RN, Ashland OR
My time with Halo has always been transformational. I recently attended a Jade Temple Toaist Sexuality workshop , guided by Halo, at the Dankini Rose Gardens. It was truly a blessing. She has a profound way of creating an air of comfort and equality allowing us all to drop in very deeply to ourselves. The class was very informational AND experiential. I left feeling more in alignment with my body, mind and spirit. I will definitely take more workshops from Shakti Temple Arts. I am grateful Halo is in my life as a teacher and a friend. ~Regina Spangle, Doula/Healing Practitioner, Minneapolis, MN
