UKTQF Shen Dao Programme

Through the Shen Dao Programme. we teach the Internal martial arts of Tai Chi Chuan, Xingyiquan and Baguazhang as a context for the discovery and study of Sung, or un-doing.


Shen Dao means ‘The Way of the Spirit’ or “The Way of the Heart’. All practices taught are in accordance with Daoist principles of the simultaneous cultivation of mind, body and spirit.


All teaching relies on the commitment of the student to practise at home – ‘the teacher fills the glass with water, the student can only drink from the glass through their own private practice’.


The programme allows for the individual to follow the way of self-cultivation, or Qigong, beginning with improvements in health and internal harmony and moving on to a comprehension of our own original nature. When the mind and body are flexible we can become more spontaneous and live in tune with the natural rhythms of life.


The structure and techniques of movement and energy cultivation within the internal martial arts are studied closely, with informed attention to the Classics, revealing that structure and form are not the goal, rather they are an important step towards the un-doing.
