Halo Seronko is the founder of Shakti Temple Arts, an international and online school of Temple Dance, Tantra and Taoist Arts for Women.
Raised by a Taoist father, her roots in tradition, lineage and spiritual practice stretch back to childhood. She considers Taoism to be the root of her spirituality, the system from where she began her spiritual and energetic quest studying Tai Chi and Qigong with her father in her early teens. She has since studied multiple lineages in the Taoist traditions of health and well-being, healing arts and sexual energy cultivation. Combining many threads from her father, as well as Mantak Chia and other teachers from the Healing Tao Lineage over the last decade, her practice of Taoist Female Sexual Energy Cultivation has flourished and opened up new awareness and embodied experiences that have transformed Halo’s life and way of being in profound and beautiful ways. From the depths of her own experiences and her passion for these teachings, Halo has been teaching for 6 years online and internationally.
Her mission with Shakti Temple Arts is to offer keys to unlocking the soul’s yearning for expression of it’s innate divinity and wholeness in THIS life, and in THIS body through these time tested lineages of embodiment, consciousness, health and beauty practices.
Intro to Jade Temple Taoist Feminine Arts:
An introduction to the Taoist Feminine Arts and the Jade Egg Practices for women’s sexual and spiritual health. These time-tested practices assist women in cultivating and tending the vibrant sexual energy that is their essence, and using that energy for health, fertility, pleasure, intimacy and spiritual fulfillment.
In the Taoist tradition, sexual energy is known as Jing. It is the powerful energy of creation, and when harnessed and cultivated leads to a long life full of joy, vitality, youth, radiance and pleasure. In Jade Temple we work with foundational practices to prepare the body for the warm sexual Jing energy. Working with our Ovarian energy we then learn to sense, awaken, and circulate our vital sexual energy through all the organs and cells of our bodies, increasing our capacity for pleasure, radiance, and self knowledge. Through the sacred and foundational Taoist practice of the Jade Egg we tone and tune into our sacred Jade Gate (yoni) and womb space. The Jade Egg practice helps to bring more sensitivity, juiciness, versatility and strength to our Yoni and womb, while cleansing, purifying and balancing these sacred chambers.
In this workshop:
~ Learn about the Taoist view of sexuality and how to practically apply it to your life for greater harmony, longevity and joy
