What you will learn

  • Understand the basic term Ziran – Natural & Spontaneous State, from a Taoist view.
  • Recognize why humans have a hard time knowing what is good for us.
  • Describe how you can make it easier for yourself and your patients to find a state of mind of healthy spontaneity

Course Overview

Often translated as spontaneity, the concept of Ziran is more the movements of things, beings and events following their natural courses. Before being spontaneous, humans must cultivate themselves seriously to recover their true nature. If they want to be spontaneous without that, their tendencies and desires are not aligned with the natural order, which is always behind the course of things.

Spontaneity and natural order are the two facets of the same and unique reality. The classical understanding of Ziran is elucidated through a choice of texts from different schools.
