MogaDao Sacred Daoist Sexuality/ Sunday/ 5:00pm—6:30pm
This class session introduces and develops the unique philosophy of MogaDao Sacred Daoist Sexuality, which relates sexual energy to personal destiny, and which understands human desire as an essential part of the “code” of the soul and a necessity for health—whether or not one engages in sexual relations. The MogaDao Sexual Qigong Forms are for men, women, and trans- and multiply-gendered persons. These forms tonify (lift) the sexual qi, whether one is interested in sexual relations or just maintaining or rediscovering creative vitality. There are also intimate self-cultivation practices (which are described in great detail, but not enacted), which are extremely helpful for sexual confidence and self-esteem, and comprehensive health. The atmosphere of these classes is inestimably safe, respectful, dignified, and joyous.

A Letter to My Students
In January 2017 I became a Daochan monk, a decision that changed every aspect of my life, including my relationship to the economic aspect of teaching. I understood that what I wished in the depths of my heart was to break the timeworn maxim that “you get what you pay for.” That is of course an essentially capitalistic maxim, and it is cold—and what is cold is not eternal. I realized that it might be incumbent on someone such as myself, whose entire life has been devoted to the practices that I teach, such that their value is indisputable, to consciously break the link between money (the price of classes) and value (the precision and profundity of what is offered), in order to liberate spiritual practice from the economic privilege that can afford it. In the world of the spirit, only the unreasonable makes sense. That is why we forgive the unforgivable. That is why we are calm in chaos. That is why we love in the midst of hatred—because it is unreasonable. Likewise, the most rarefied teaching should be available to whomsoever longs for the most rarefied teaching, regardless of their economic means. The laws of common sense—and of business sense—function only so far. Those laws begin to quiver with uncertainty in the realms of the spirit. Therefore I have decided to make all my classes, everywhere, available to everyone, by virtue of a sliding scale beginning at zero. I have founded MogaDao: The Way of Complete Harmony based on the practices that I have created and the ideologies by which I live. Many students have found these practices and ideologies essential for their spiritual path, and for the healing and strengthening of their bodies. But no state supports my “monastery.” I need sustenance and reciprocation, as anyone who lives and breathes. I teach, now, as an act of faith, and as a rite of gratitude. I ask each of you to study with me also as an act of faith, and as a rite of gratitude. Please pay what you can, by which I mean please pay carefully what you can, each time you practice.
