Tao Healing and Meditation Guide

Levels I & II

‘Learn by Teaching, Grow by Sharing’

What is Tao Healing and Meditation?

Tao Meditation has been taught throughout Asia for several thousand years to guide people toward self-discovery, self-healing, and self-fulfillment. This style of meditation uses multiple energy principles to create a harmonious connection between body, mind, and spirit.

Tao Healing was established through the principles and practice of the Korean Tao tradition. Known as “Sun-Tao” (仙道), it is based on the understanding that we, as humans, are manifestations of the ultimate life energy, and that Qi is the life force of all humans.

Qi has been recognized and used throughout the world since ancient times; in India it is known as Prana, in China as Chi, in Japan and Korea as Ki, and as the Great Spirit for Native Americans. Weak or blocked Qi can cause sickness, disease, agitation, and stress. In contrast, strong Qi Energy brings about health and well-being, as well as increased mental alertness, focus and creativity.

 ‘Qi is the Great Life Force of the Cosmos’

    I started this journey one and a half years ago and it has completely changed my life. I feel grounded I feel stronger emotionally physically and spiritually free. Wow what an incredible healing, loving and tender experience I recommend to everyone. ~Jacqueline

  • It is one of the most relaxing place I’ve visited. The staff and teachers here are so friendly and joyful, that I never felt alone here even though I came here alone. Best place to be with yourself. ~Ashwini

  • "I love coming up here. Every time I begin my journey/drive up here I feel more connected to my true self. Just knowing my destination and what awaits here for us is heartwarming and gives me joy. We can sense, feel and taste how much we all truly love Mother Mago. My favorite part was learning how to observe my thoughts " ~Mayra

  • "It has been a great journey! I am so grateful and appreciative for everything and every program that I took here to help my soul's growth. I will continue to learn more by practicing to share what I've learned and taking a lot more courses in the future. I will definitely introduce this contents to my friends and family. I could feel the teacher's love and passion. I do appreciate her patience and I am very satisfied with all the answers to my questions." ~Kornsolyda

  • "I came to Tao Healing and Meditation Guide to learn how to help others. The program was amazing, made me stronger and it was everything I expected. The teachers and staff were amazing." ~Wendy

  • "Tao Healing and Meditation Guide was the exact experience I needed for my spiritual growth and to enable me to not only heal myself but also to share healing with others. Master Juniper's sincerity and strength in training and facilitating meditations is amazing. She helped me open, heal, and grow more than I could have imagined in three days. She taught me ways to sustain and continue what I learned with daily practice tools. I feel blessed and grateful for her and this experience." ~Loretta

  • "The trainer faced challenges within the group differences by helping us all to the gifts with each challenge. She was open to our thoughts and was really an encouraging compassionate, authentic model who sees us and our possibility."

    "This was a very good experience I had to remind myself to take the info for me and the healer in me."

    "My favorite part of the program was recovery of the self."

    "Live your true essence"

  • "Truly liberating. The opportunity to really "feel" and discover your true spirit and energy body through practical exercise as well as understanding the principles behind the exercise were liberating and powerful. The energy at Mago and the approach of getting us to feel and get in touch with our spirit and soul has given me a platform to grow my practice at home from the right foundations." ~Mike

  • "Seeking the healing path has been quite a journey for me. Our trip to Mago was not only to learn to heal others but to heal myself. A brain tumor left damage not only to my body but to my emotional well being. I lost confidence in myself and my ability to continue my spiritual practice. I left here with a body that was lit up to heal itself even further and renewed to grow my soul. Gratitude to my community of Tao and Juniper, (you too Amy!)" ~Gina

  • "This program was beyond my expectation of helping me to connect to my true self. Master Juniper is an excellent teacher and role model. Just being in her presence is a wonderful gift and her soul-centered efforts brought much growth of our group bonding and personal growth. Many thanks!" ~Marti

  • "I attended the March Tao Meditation Coaching, and it was so much more than I ever could have imagined.  I was hoping to deepen my practice and become a better leader for our practice at home.  I learned so much and can’t wait to share the practice with several friends back home.  I feel so much more confident in my leadership skills.  I learned new techniques that will help me to facilitate our own practice at home more fluidly and give me the ability to properly guide some friends through beginning a new practice.

    Over the weekend I was able to deepen the connection to my soul, chakras and energy body in ways that I have never experienced.  The small group setting made sharing easy and open.  I became much more mindful of my overall mental and physical condition and hope to continue to grow both spiritually and personally through the training sessions with Master Juniper." - Catherine

  • “Tao Mediation Coaching at Mago Retreat delivers much more than it promises. Master Juniper lead our small group of sincere persons to go deep within ourselves while she taught us how to coach others various ways to heal body, mind, and spirit by tapping into the energy (Life Particles) available to everyone. Having lived three-quarters of a century, my personal goal for the course was to find new energy for the next phase of my life. I wanted to approach it with an open heart instead of being filled with resentment and dread. Master Juniper and my fellow students helped me clarify what my soul truly desires, so that now I can open my mind and heart to limitless possibilities. They showered me with healing energy as I hope to do for others through coaching Tao meditation. I'm ready for Act IV!”

  • “What I experienced this weekend was an experience beyond description. After releasing years and years of old habits and patterns stuck in my body, the energy present went to those places and healed them. For 6 years I have not been able to sit cross-legged for the excruciating pain in my hip and legs. The techniques we did actually released my hips and I was able to sit cross-legged again with very little pain and the pain that was there felt different, almost good. That was an awesome experience. My heart opened and I was able to feel again like I haven’t in quite some time. Most important and what I want to share is that I connected with my soul and my True Self. I recommend taking this course if you want to share this experience and help others to find who they are and recover the meaning in their lives. Juniper can guide you to recover who you are and help you find your hope and dreams. She is a beautiful soul and her helper Amy is an angel. Thank you for everything.”
    - Love and Light, ~ Kathy

  • "I was able to connect with myself better and also stay grounded while things were going around me. The training also helped me to identify a vision of how I want to live my life going forward. By changing my eating habits to become more grateful and mindful about the foods I eat and using the principles of Tao that I learn to help others to improve their lives by becoming more balanced physically, mentally and spiritually."
    ~ Janet

  • "All the masters, guides, trainers, staff and volunteer open my mind and heart bigger each time I have spent and learned at Mago. It has been a tremendous source of healing and has forever changed my life. I now have a clear path towards peace and my truth on the Earth. Thank you, everyone!" ~ Micah
