Three Stages of Training
- Evolutionary stage: This stage implies practices to relax and heal the body-mind-spirit and to prepare the practitioner for the higher stages. Here we create the foundations that will help the trainees to approach with more ease the arduous discipline that will have to be faced in the Transitory and Completion stages.
- Transitory stage: This stage is transitory in the sense that the trainee at that point of the training focuses on developing the skills to allow the Wisdom Mind (Yi) to conduct the practice over the emotional mind (Xin). Here the trainee already regulated the body, the breath, and the mind and is now able to reach a deep state of relaxation, which is fundamental for further progresses. While the “Evolutionary Stage” is about actualising a Deep Relaxation, this stage is about achieving the Perfect Stillness in order to reach the Original State of Great Emptiness. From the latter, the natural process of the Dao operates and unfolds. In the “Transitory Stage” we pursue the regulation of the Xin (emotional mind), the Jing (essence), and the Qi (energy).
- Completion stage: This is the Highest stage of all Daoist practices in which the Disciple is chosen by the Master in order to be led to achieve full Realization and Enlightenment. At this stage one has already developed the ability to allow the Wisdom Mind (Yi) to conduct the practice and has also shown a high degree of Morality and Integrity. This is the path of the Daoist Yogi.
