Meditation origin: Taoism

Taoism

Taoism dates back 5,000 years, originating in the ancient Wu shaman tradition. Taoist philosophy and practices are designed to bring the practitioner into harmony with the Source of all life, what Lao Tzu, author of the Tao Te Ching, calls Tao. Practices such as qigong, tai chi, feng shui, Chinese medicine, meditation, internal alchemy (nei dan) and astrology all originate or were heavily influenced by Taoist thought.
