The inner alchemy of yin and yang
Embracing Tao, you become embraced. Supple, breathing gently, you become reborn.
Clearing your vision, you become clear. Nurturing your beloved, you become impartial.
Opening your heart, you become accepted. Accepting the World, you embrace Tao.
Bearing and nurturing, Creating but not owning,
Giving without demanding, Controlling without authority,
This is love.
About Jade Temple
Jade Temple Taoist Arts is a synthesis of sexual energy cultivation, and radical self care for women 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 personal experience, as well as 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. Toa 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 more peace, health, wisdom and longevity.
In the Toaist 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, juciness, 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.
Welcome to the Jade Temple! Please stay tuned for upcoming offerings in the Tao!
Jade Temple: Jade Egg Practice Circle
November 12th 6-9pm Sebastopol, CA
Jade Temple is a sacred space for women to gather and explore the ancient Taoist practices of sexual energy cultivation and pelvic health through the powerful tool of the Jade Egg.
In this cauldron we internally alchemize the energies of Yin and Yang and step into the role of the cosmic cortesan; sexually sovereign and self sourced as vehicles of divinities embodiment!
This Temple will be held monthly throughout the winter and each evening we will be able to deepen into these practices and explore the breadth of the Taoist Female Sexual Energy system.
NOVEMBER JADE TEMPLE THEME:
The Cosmic Courtesan: Embodying the beloved of the Divine
- In this ritual/practice circle we will begin with an herbal cacao sacrament as we cast our space, set our intentions and begin to build our energy through breast massage and ovarian breathing.
- We will move into the ancient Jade Egg practices to further enhance the energy cultivation.
- With the energy flowing we will move into a womb based dance ritual allowing this energy to move our vessels in subtle rapture while remaining deeply connected to the source of this great energy, or Shakti.
- We will close our circle by grounding the energy, integrating our practice and offering it's merit.
