For the month of February, the Rothko Chapel presents a meditation in the Daoist tradition. Led by Brandi Beckett and Simon Cox of Wudang Houston, this session will explore Daoist Inner Alchemy from the San Feng lineage. The Daoist Inner Alchemy is a form of Daoist meditation centered around becoming familiar with the energies and energetic pathways in one’s body, breaking down the barrier between body and mind.
