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 is a sacred space for women to come together and initiate and cultivate the ancient Taoist Feminine Arts.

The Taoist Feminine Arts are ancient practices that harness our powerful sexual energy and use it to increase our vitality, our ecstatic embodiment, our fertility and most importantly our spiritual awakening within the temple of the body. They are alchemical arts that lead us through the mystery of Tao using the opposites of Yin and Yang and into an experience of wholeness, balance, radiance and joy.

In these Temples we honor and hold dear the lineage of the Tao from which these practices emerge through engaging with the principles of Taoism that are inherent in the practices.

In the Jade Temple we:

CLEAR:

Developing a powerful relationship to our pelvic bowl and reproductive organs we learn to tend them through womb and ovarian clearing. This sets a clear and coherent space to begin to cultivate energy.

CULTIVATE:

Once the space is prepared within our wombs, we move into cultivation by learning to harness the powerful ovarian energy, alchemizing Yin and Yang within the chalice of the womb, and then circulating this rich ambrosia throughout every cell of our being until we are overflowing.

AMPLIFY:

As the energy flows we move into the beginnings of the Jade Egg practices to further exalt this potent energy, to create more dexterity, blood flow and lubrication in the yoni, to create a strong seal to hold our vital energy in, to use the ally energy of Jade to balance or Yin and Yang energies, and to open into greater orgasmic potential which brings us closer to the divine within and without.

These arts have survived the tests of time because of their power and it is a true gift they are still with us today!

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~~~
