Coming up 2020: The living Dao – an introduction

In this book, Master Shangshi introduces his movement theory of the `DAO Natural Movements’. The Movements are the extract of four great movement teachings of Asia and have the potential to transform our bodies, our hearts and our minds from the ground up. The DAO Natural Movements revitalize our body, open the original inner structure and let the body heal permanently. This process has a deep feedback to the psyche, which also begins to solve its patterns. The DAO Natural Movements are much more than a pure theory of movement, they are permeated with the spirit of Dzogchen and can be a gateway to our true being for us.
Master Shangshi is the founder of `Living Dao’. Living Dao is the contemporary name of a Dzogchen lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, the Nyingma School, which dates back to the first living Master Garab Dorje. Master Shangshi is a lineage holder of this ancient tradition. After his enlightenment, his teacher gave him the task of giving the way to awakening without the costume of religion, naked and direct to people like us – in the West. The DAO Natural Movements are part of his system that helps us to physically open ourselves to the Dao, the true nature. Andrea Thiele is a long-time student of Master Shangshi and writes down his teaching. She lives in Hamburg, works as a book author and publisher, she teaches Qigong and the DAO Natural Movements.

The Living Dao – 238 pages

dao-book-big-cover-frontThis book decribes in a modern language the ancient teaching that was passed on from master to student for a very long time only in secrecy. However, it has now been opened to the world. Master Shangshi calls this Way, the essence of which can also be found in all mystical traditions of our world, the way of ‘the living Dao’. This path leads us back to our true being, free of limitations, fears, illness-causing patterns into boundless freedom, into awakening.
This book serves as a companion and a guide to all who follow the path of ‘the living Dao’. Nevertheless, this book can not replace the Master. The ‘Living Dao’ requires a direct heart to heart transmission from the teacher to his students.
The Master: Master Shangshi is a lineage holder of a Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. He also has an extensive knowledge of other Buddhist traditions, the Taoism and the Christian mysticism, as well as of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Qigong, Kung Fu, and the I Ching. His leitmotif is ‘the awakening to the reality of being’, aimed at independency of any religion. Master Shangshi lectures each year in Europe.
