Brocade #3: Red Dragon Stirs the Sea. In a seated meditative position, move the tongue around the mouth in a circular direction around the teeth 36 times (or so) in each direction. It can be done on the outside of the teeth, or inside, or both.
The arms can then be raised like the image above, six inhales, and then swallow as the hands are lowered. This breathing strengthens the lungs; however, the “stirring the sea” or the tongue moving around the mouth to generate saliva can be done without raising the arms. (In a meeting, in line, in public, etc.) Try it!
What is Taoism?
Maybe it can’t be described… but I try.. relating it to nature makes sense to me; I’d love to hear what you think.
