  4. Searching for a mentor

    Hey guys, I'm in need of some assistance. I'm really interested in exploring a lot of the topics on this site, as well as general Taoist philosophy, internal alchemy, meditation, Tai Chi and the like. The problem I'm having is I want/need a mentor. I dont know of any Masters in my area, and I'm not saying I need a MASTER in particular to help guide me on my way but someone with experience and the drive to help a wandering soul on a personal journey to enlightenment and knowledge. Is there anyone on this site who would like to act as my "mentor" and maybe just guide me in the right direction? I really don't know where to begin, nor do I know of anyone who does. I feel like I might be putting myself in jeopardy by trying these techniques without proper guidance; Im not looking for anything intensive just someone to talk to and occasionally direct me in my meditational studies and offer insight and techniques to better understand myself. Sort of like a Taoist pen-pal, a light to guide me through the darkness. Anyway if anyone is interested please let me know, and if not maybe someone can point me in the right direction?

  9. nei kung

    Hey guys, ive just recently been exposed to Daoist culture and philosophy (if you want to call it that) and ive taken a considerable interest in Nei Kung and Tai Chi. I cant afford to join a Tai Chi class around me and I have almost no idea what Nei Kung is aside from it being internal alchemy, my question is where and how do I start? What is Nei Kung? How do I begin to practice it, what are good sources for it and does anyone have any ideas on how or where I can practice either Tai Chi or Nei Kung for free? keep in mind im a total beginner and know very little on either subject. Can anyone instruct me on how to cultivate Nei Kung?
  10. hello everyone :)

    Just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Kyle, 21 years old a New Jersey native. I can't seem to recall how I came across this website but nevertheless it's right up my alley. Maybe it was preordained? I'm not one to believe in coincidence. At any rate, it's a pleasure to be a part of a community of people who are also on the path, probably the closest ill ever get to such a community in real life. Thanks!
