Meditation is one of the chief tools in the Taoists quest for inner peace.
The Chinese word for meditation simply means ‘sitting’, but Taoist Meditation techniques have developed into sophisticated and complex systems designed to have profound mental and physical effects. These techniques have developed over thousands of years.
Unlike most meditation techniques, much of Taoist meditation is performed while moving, as in Chi Gung and Tai Chi.
Taoists put great importance on emptiness and stillness, and these qualities are never more important than in meditation. It aims to cut out all thought and make the mind completely still. Once the mind is emptied of trivial thoughts, stress vanishes, and when the body is completely relaxed its systems can work at full strength.
