Master Sha Tao Center


Mindfulness and wellness seem to be something a lot of people, including myself, are trying to put into practice.  But it's easier said than done (at least for me!).  I've tried meditating before, but my mind cannot rest.  Stress and anxiety are all too common in most people's lives, but the Master Sha Tao Center offers programs to help "fill one's soul with the love and light," enabling individuals to remove blockages and create more positive energy flow to live a less stressful, but more mindful life.


Classes included Tao Calligraphy and Tao Calligraphy Tao Chang Healing and Transformation.


I have never heard of Tao Calligraphy before until I attended a media event at Master Sha Tao Center.  Master Patrick Sambueno explained that essentially, it's a type of Chinese calligraphy utilizing a single stroke, but there is an even deeper purpose.  According to the website:
Tao Calligraphy is a unique form created by Master Zhi Gang Sha that builds on the ancient meditative practice of Chinese calligraphy writing by infusing the unique form of one-stroke Yi Bi Zi calligraphy with Tao light, blessings, and messages of the Greatest Tao qualities of love, forgiveness, compassion, and much more. Master Sha’s Tao Calligraphy is Oneness writing that carries frequencies and vibrations that bless everyone in its presence. 
Tao Calligraphy brings together the essential Taoist principles of following the Way, uniting humanity and Heaven, and cultivating health and longevity with the power of soul, heart, mind, and body. This unique combination heightens the powerful natural force within us and the universe to come together as One in harmony and balance.

I had a chance to try a bit of Tao Calligraphy myself, as taught by Master Orlena Wong.

It was a bit intimidating, but amazingly, for a few seconds I was actually "in the moment" as I took brush to paper, and I was not thinking of anything else.


Even more amazing was what Master Orlena could "read" based on the calligraphy.  A few of the things she said about me was that I was intelligent (I would like to think so!) and analytical (very true!), and with Melissa's calligraphy, she could see an imbalance on the lower half of her body (one leg is longer than the other!).

I would definitely want to try the Tao Calligraphy again, not only because it made me tune in to the present and nothing else, but also because I'm curious as to what else the calligraphy would reveal!

I also tried the Tao Chang Movement Meditation, in which you use hand motions to trace Tao Calligraphy while emitting sounds.  This was a lot harder than I thought it would be, and I actually thought it made me more anxious instead of less.  Perhaps with practice I could get into that meditative state.  

In addition, experienced the Maluhia (Peace Room), which is filled with Himalayan Salt Lamps, on which you place your hands and feet to help you de-stress.

I learned a lot of information in just a short amount of time, and my short visit made me very eager to put into practice a lot of the teachings - because we all could use a little more balance and positivity, right?
