Taiji WorldWide

Daoist Principles in Practice

A gentle path of internal evolution through Taiji, Inner-refinement & Meditation

Energy Realms

The world is a series of inter-penetrating subtle energy realms


One Balanced Way

Train intention, awareness & intelligence within the 3 realms of the Deep Mind, while aspiring towards the Beyond.

The Way Beyond begins from the Deep Mental.

Deep Mental is accessed from Deep Emotional.

Deep Emotional is found from Deep Body level.

The only way to the Deep Body level is through the body itself.

道德經 – Dao De Jing:

"道生一 Dao gave rise to one
一生二 one produced two
二生三 two produced three
三生萬物 three produced myriads
萬物負陰而抱陽 myriads bear Yin, embrace Yang
沖氣以為和 harmonised by immaterial Qi

YangLuchan 1799-1872. Founder of Yang Taiji

The Source

The further back in time we look the more obscure taiji history becomes

Yet looking back 2 things become clear.

Taiji's inner essence flows down from genuine teachers to sincere pupils in unbroken chains.

Each teacher devises a personal system to express and pass on the impersonal inner teaching. The teaching must evolve outwardly or die inwardly.

Taiji Dao

Taiji is in practice what 'Dao de Jing' expresses in principle

These principles remain universal throughout the known worlds, undiminished by their common reduction to intellectual ideas, emotional values, or religious rules, by the various races of the Earth.
There is only one true Taiji, one set of principles.
Human deviation gave rise to family styles (Yang, Wu, Chen etc) which each has strengths and weaknesses. Their strengths are where they follow the principles and their weaknesses are where they deviate from the principles.

We train fluid power waves:
Yang Style issuing transverse wave
Wu Style borrowing pressure wave
Chen Style spiral twisting wave

We follow my teacher's advice,
"Return to the original principles, from before the styles diverged."

"Though they practice my methods, not following my (inner) way they are not my students"


Patrick A Kelly

Immersed 50yrs in the 3 great esoteric streams, Patrick presents an intelligent synthesis of Daoist/Buddhist, Gnostic/Sufi & Yogic internal work – the worldwideway.

Patrick has authored 4 books on Taiji & meditation (in English, French, German, Italian, Chinese). He guides a world network of 100 teachers and 1000s of students.

True contact, external and internal, with the 3 great esoteric streams enliven this teaching, which leads deeply inside you towards the one formless Source – which has no name.

Myriad methods, but only one Way.

The worldwideway is the internal path back to our essential being.
It steadily unfolds as we delve deeper into our own inner world.

But beware, the inner world is deceptive, even dangerous, as the Mind perceives this world through its own self-created web of illusion – sometimes delusion. Without true directions and a guide, people will almost certainly go astray.

For those who wish to retrace their steps that guidance is available without which, practically speaking, there is little chance of finding the way.

Only a fool would feel capable of guiding others on this individual internal path. It is obligation to those beyond, not choice, which is behind what is offered here.

The worldwideway might condense to a few words

"Seek a broad balance of life experience"
"Cultivate Respect, Gratitude & Humility"
"Deepen consciousness"
"Reach out for the Beyond"

"Seek a broad balance of life experience"

Harm no one.
Understand others – change yourself.
Stay positive in whatever life brings.

"Give Respect, Feel Gratitude, Be Humble"

Give respect to those who earn it.
Feel gratitude for all you receive
Be humble in the face of the Beyond
– expect nothing in return

"Deepen consciousness"

Use any helpful exercises or meditations, inwards through the 3 levels of human existence – etheric, astral & celestial (jing, qi, shen).

"Reach out for the Beyond"

Direct your mind towards your highest concept of the Beyond, then realise, as the Beyond grows within, that your outer human existence is next to nothing.
