The mission of the Immortal Sisters Conference is to gather together women practitioners and enthusiasts of Chi Kung and Taoist spirituality. Our intention is to inspire, learn, empower and share the ancient wisdom of “Returning to the Tao”. Our goal is to cultivate balance for women’s lives and for Mother Earth in an overly yang society .
Returning to the Tao means returning to harmony and balance with nature, our communities, and ourselves. Presentations will include Taoist alchemical meditations, Chi Kung physical practices, healing practices, sexuality practices, panel discussions, activism, entertainment and all the beautiful things that happen when women with positive vibrations come together.
The conference celebrates and supports women in their endeavors to create a better world and gives them a safe space to share and learn from each other. This special female “esprit de corp” (feeling of loyalty, enthusiasm, and devotion) can fuel the fire of creativity and spiritual understanding and help us move forward personally and collectively.
The conference is inspired by Thomas Cleary’s book, Immortal Sisters: Secret Teachings of Taoist Women, that presents life stories and teachings of distinguished female Taoist adepts who lived from the third to twelfth centuries. These accomplished women, renowned in their own day and throughout history, represent a uniquely female heritage of spiritual mastery.
The Immortal Sisters Conference will honor these legendary Taoist adepts as well as inspire today’s women to see themselves as carriers of this potent spiritual lineage.
Women of all ages and experience are welcome!
