You can begin the Journey

The Formless Taoism Immortal Mind® program  was created as a way for those interested in Taoism, energy medicine and spiritual work,  to understand the deep inner blockages that could be hindering one’s energy practice or own growth and path in life. It’s basis is to counsel and coach people to discover their own inner divinity.

This is a philosophical retreat program for caring and deep thinking individuals who are committed to exploring their own self talk and mindscape of how they understand themselves emotionally / spiritually and how to make sense of the world around them. It is a place to be amongst thinkers, sharing in a mastermind approach, as well as based in Taoist principals.

The class is always the second weekend of the month, Saturday and Sunday, 9 am – 5pm ET. If monthly travel is not available for you, this class is also available via live Zoom as well. (its is not recorded, as it is meant to be participatory and also to honor the sacred space for everyone sharing there.

The time spent will be lecture on Taoist, Buddhist and Native American concepts of living without judgement, the art of happiness, dealing with death (transition) and loss of loved ones as well as learning new meditations to open up the chakras, removing Luo channels and cleansing the Po as just a few examples. We will also discuss how memory works (the Hun) and how to recover from trauma.

All things relative to the Mind are open for discussion. The objective is to walk away with new clarity of the energies of Heaven / Earth and how to be a better person suspended between them. The retreat weekend is structured with lecture, meditation practice, philosophical questions and journaling assignments, qigong practice and self reflection and more.

The program is held at the Inner Strength retreat center on 88 acres of sacred lands. There is a small retreat house with space for 4 people, will full kitchen, and shared bath. We encourage people to treat this as a retreat, and truly get away from the stressors or life, and step into nature during this time.

Immortal Mind® Programs

 With Dr. Ted Cibik       

“These programs are perfect for those who want to delve deeper into Asian philosophy, modern science of the mind and brain, pathways to enlightenment and staying clear and grounded in a very tumultuous world. As the counselor of many therapists, physiologists and psychiatrists for over 25 years, I can attest that this is not therapy per se, but a higher calling of mind and spirit.

Being pronounced dead in hospitals twice in my life, gives one a different perspective of life, what it means to be alive and spiritual connections that are not found in standard teachings of Buddhism, Christianity, Kabbalah or Native American. It is different, and has to be experienced as my students will attest.”
