The Taoist Studies Institute is a place for people interested in deepening their understanding and practice of the Taoist tradition. Over the last decade, a unique, educational program to support this vision has developed. Our curriculum offers participants a strong foundation in Taoist cultivation and energetic awareness through a combination of practices including Taoist meditation, philosophy, traditional medicine, and the arts.

The Taoist Studies Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization founded in 1991 to foster Taoist culture and cultivation.
