Sitting comfortably, we observe, releasing what is held. The tight grip of control loosens as we 'get out of the way'. The bubble in which we live dissolves, revealing direct emersion with the environment . Rather than going toward, we allow all to be.
The approach of Traquil Sitting is simple. We sit, observe our breath and allow ourselves to dissolve. But this is not easy to follow. An experienced teacher will gently guide the sincere searcher by questioning, accepting and suggestion - never insisting. I would like to introduce you to Shi Jing who heads the British Daoist Association - a group who follow the Dao through traquil sitting. The association arranges workshops and retreats where Shi jing supports and nourishes our cultivation.
