Coming up 2020: DAO Natural Movements
In this book, Master Shangshi introduces his movement theory of the `DAO Natural Movements’. The Movements are the extract of four great movement teachings of Asia and have the potential to transform our bodies, our hearts and our minds from the ground up. The DAO Natural Movements revitalize our body, open the original inner structure and let the body heal permanently. This process has a deep feedback to the psyche, which also begins to solve its patterns. The DAO Natural Movements are much more than a pure theory of movement, they are permeated with the spirit of Dzogchen and can be a gateway to our true nature for us.
Master Shangshi is the founder of `Living Dao’. Living Dao is the contemporary name of a Dzogchen lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, the Nyingma School, which dates back to the first living Master Garab Dorje. Master Shangshi is a lineage holder of this ancient tradition. After his enlightenment, his teacher gave him the task of teaching the way to awakening without the costume of religion, naked and direct to people like us in the West. The DAO Natural Movements are part of his system that helps us to physically open ourselves to the Dao, the true nature. Andrea Thiele is a long-time student of Master Shangshi and writes down his teachings. She lives in Hamburg, works as a book author and publisher, she teaches Qigong and the DAO Natural Movements.
