Hallo

Hallo - from RichardHallo ,  I am Richard Bertschinger,  acupuncturist, translator and teacher in Somerset and this is my Tao World.  It tells of what I have gleaned from reading the Chinese commentaries, on the world of Taoism.  Please do contact me to let me know your Tao world, or post below, that we might create a dialogue to celebrate our common humanity, our world in all its fragilities and strengths.

 On Self-Care
From Sun Simiao – his old book:

THE WHEEL OF HEAVEN TURNS, IT MOUNTS UP AND FALLS AWAY; THE TRACK OF HUMAN AFFAIRS IS SIMILARLY UNCLEAR; WHEREVER WE DWELL, WE DWELL UNKNOWINGLY ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER. THERE IS NOBODY IN THE WORLD, WHO, IF THEY CANNOT TAKE CARE OF THEM­SELVES, WILL BE ABLE TO CONQUER THIS COURSE; THEREFORE NO SCHOLAR PURSUING HIS NATURE, WHO DOES NOT MAKE A PLAN  CONCERNING SELF-CARE, WILL EVER BE ABLE TO PARTAKE IN ANY DISCUSSION ON THE PATH OF NOURISHING LIFE; FOR THIS REASON WE TAKE SELF-CARE AS FUNDAMENTAL.

Please see video of a sample self-care, qigong exercise below.  This develops the skill of ’embryonic breathing’, or Babe’s Breathing. See here (scroll down page).
