Jacob Newell is pleased to bring Qigong, Taijiquan (Tai Chi), & contemplative Daoist meditation to Well Sonoma.
Qigong () is a modern term for an ancient Chinese practice of cultivating vitality in movement & stillness. Taijiquan () is a subtle form of Qigong based on relaxed body alignment and smooth flow of energy – it’s also an effective martial art. Contemplative Daoist meditation () is a practice of relaxing into our natural experience, free of any ideas, goals, or effort.
With over 25 years’ experience in a broad array of Daoist cultivation arts, Jacob specializes in bringing people into relaxed body alignment, smooth, effortless movement, and an intimate, embodied experience of the principles of Chinese cosmology. He has certifications in Qigong, Taijiquan, & Acupressure, and is an ordained Daoist. He also enjoys practicing Chinese calligraphy and tea ceremony, translating Chinese texts, and channeling contemplative poetry.
Jacob offers more comprehensive Daoist training through Old Oak School of Dao (www.oldoakdao.org).
