“One cannot force or grasp a spiritual experience, because it is as delicate as the whisper of the wind. But one can purify one's motivation, one's body, and train oneself to cultivate it. Because we come from a culture which teaches us that there is always something external to be obtained which will lead us to fulfillment, we lose contact with our innate wisdom.” Lama Tsultrim Allione from her book Women of Wisdom

Taoist Centre Summer 2019 Course Leader: Dr Alex Boyd

Dr Alex Boyd graduated from the UC Davis ‘Performance Studies’ PhD in June 2014. His dissertation 'The Sustainability of Traditional Knowledge Systems' draws on 30 years immersion and 20 years professional application in a Taoist system of cultivation. The central practice of his dissertation applies a proposed 3-strand model for sustainability: embodied knowledge, traditional knowledge and application – to create the first ever embodied practice degree in the West that values such learning from the East. Dr Boyd is a Research Associate with UC Davis Theatre & Dance researching how Asian training in energy enhances acting. He founded the IFTR ERWG and is Founding Director for Intercultural Roots, an international body for embodied research. As wisdom culture consultant to The We Company he supports curriculum and staff development at WeGrow. Dr Boyd lives in Yorkshire and teaches the Taoist arts in London, Europe and in North America. He supports people wishing to form not-for-profits.
