I have been practicing Yoga in Canada since 2010. Last year, when I opened the door of the center and met Chun, the Master Yoga teacher, I felt immediately a deep connection. Tao is a healing type of Yoga. It has changed my life in many ways; it has healed physical pain, balanced my emotions, given me a greater sense of connection with myself, improved my confidence and allowed me to develop a compassionate heart.

I have been committed to a daily practice and I quickly felt the need to deepen my experience by participating in the Stress to Strength,  Finding True Self and Ki Energy Healing workshops in Sedona. I became a “Tao guide” (Yoga facilitator) in August 2016.

Today, my goal is to share the benefits of Tao with you, help you create a healthier and more balanced lifestyle and open your heart to your true purpose. I truly believe we are all connected and by changing ourselves, we can make the world a more peaceful place to live.

I first came to the Tao Healing Center 4 years ago because my health condition was so bad and I was getting no help from medical doctors.

Since then I have been able to take myself off 6 prescription medications! I can now sleep better, have less food sensitivities and can breathe much better than before. I began teaching so I could share this healing with others and also to continue in my own growth. Also I just love the practice and the students, we are like a big extended family here.  I want to share with others the knowledge of self-healing. I want them to know there is hope.

I have been practicing Tao since 2005 when I joined the center because I felt I needed to stretch and breathe again. That began the complete transformational healing of my life in all levels – physically, mentally and spiritually. I was blessed with the opportunity to connect deeply with my soul, and my soul’s identity. She told me her/my name is “Compassion”; Ja Ae is Korean for the compassion of the Buddha and the unconditional mother’s love of the Christ. Knowing my soul identity has helped me to live more fully from my true essence and to extend my love and compassion more freely to others.

I recently retired from Corporate America after 30 years at Intel Corporation. I am grateful to now have the time and freedom to teach at the Tao Healing Center to share the principles and practices of this spectacular Tao training. My heartfelt wish is for everyone to connect deeply to their True Self, to know who they truly are, to activate the natural healing of their bodies, and to deliver the beauty of their natural talents and gifts to the world.

I started teaching Tao Healing Yoga classes in April 2016. This has also been very transforming for me. It is truly a time when I am functioning from my soul level, my heart is smiling the whole time and I feel so complete, connecting with others in the class.

I am so grateful that I am able to teach and attend these classes and guide people to finding their true selves, it is truly the most significant thing I can do to help myself and help others.

Patrick Ma, Instructor at Tao Healing Center

For as long as I can remember, I have always questioned the status quo: “What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose of this/that/the other?” As I wandered inside and outside of myself, I pursued many modalities, seeking answers to these questions.

My intellectual pursuit through academia, corporate ladder climbing, and self-driven spiritual knowledge created an unsustainable bubble of mental pseudo-ism. My physical pursuit through health and fitness only brought fleeting moments of connectedness. My spiritual pursuit through self-discipline left me feeling confused, and with more questions than answers.

Eventually, my search led me to the modest doors of the Tao Healing Center, where I was introduced to the principles and practices of Tao by Master Chun Shim. From there, I was able to break through the monotony of life’s routine by finding purpose to my practices. Physically, I was able to heal chronic back pain. Emotionally, I was able to become more aware, and manage stress. Spiritually, I was able to feel sincere release, authentic connection to my soul, pure oneness with the universe, and true spiritual growth and maturity. Through this process, I found a very humbling answer that, We Are All One.

My awakening shone through my heart, and brightened my path. It allowed me to make a choice, which was to make it my dutiful mission to share my experiences with other seekers. I chose to express my gratitude towards life by helping others to connect with and heal themselves.

Welcome home. I hope you enjoy your stay. 🙂
