Greetings from a new member.

I had been very interested in Taoism in my early twenties. I used to study and read the Tao Te Ching, the Tao of Pooh, and the Te of Piglet.


After that I got more into exploring and studying the Western Mystery traditions, Alchemy, and Hermetic philosophy.


There is a lot of overlap between these traditions. I am discovering even more overlap now that I am coming back to studying the Taoist philosophy and practices.


I recently discovered Lingzi and Reishi mushrooms. I have started taking a double-extract daily and have noticed very welcomed, and much needed, positive effects. Very grounding and anti-stress.


This led me to start digging more into the spirituality of this traditional chinese medicine. I am looking to understand and enhance these positive effects with other qi medicines and a nner practices.


Right now I am reading and studying The Neiye as presented in Harold Roth's book "Original Tao" and looking for an effective and fundamental qi/shen philosophy and practice to follow.
