Daoist Training

Recommended Posts

I am glad to be a new member of the Dao Bums in order to share my take on what it is like to be a Daoist priest from a western perspective. I was ordained in 2003 and again in 2016 as a 22nd generation Longmen priest. In 2006 I founded a western based lineage based on the teachings of the Quanzhen tradition. I am also influenced by many years of Buddhist training and a few years in the Catholic monastic contemplative traditions. I offer qigong training, general Daoist training and for those wanting the additional commitment, training to become an ordained priest of the American Dragon Gate Lineage.

Hello Shifu Li, and welcome.


Your membership is approved and we're happy you found your way to us. We look forward to accompanying you on some of the way that you still have to go.


Please take the time to read the post pinned at the top of this Welcome page and take a look at the forum terms and rules. This covers all you need to know when getting started.


For the first week you will be restricted to ten posts per day but after that you can post as much as you like. Also, until you’ve posted fifteen times in the forums, you’ll be a “Junior Bum” with somewhat restricted access and will be allowed only two private messages per day.


Good luck in your pursuits and best wishes to you,


Marblehead and the TDB team



Hi Shifu Li, 


Nice having you with us.  It is always nice to have different perspective.  We are pretty relaxed here so please don't get upset if a thread you are involved in goes off topic now and then.


You are welcome to jump right in ongoing discussions, revive an older thread, start a new thread of your own, or start a discussion in the "Newcomer Corner" sub-forms to expand on your introduction or ask general questions to help you get started.


May you enjoy your time here.
