Of all the elements, the Sage should take water as his preceptor.
Water is yielding but all-conquering.
Water extinguishes Fire, or finding itself likely to be defeated, escapes as steam and re-forms.
Water washes away Soft Earth, or, when confronted by rocks, seeks a way round.
Water corrodes Iron till it crumbles to dust; it saturates the atmosphere so that Wind dies.
Water gives way to obstacles with deceptive humility, for no power can prevent it following its destined course to the sea.
Water conquers by yielding; it never attacks but always wins the last battle.
The Sage who makes himself as Water is distinguished for his humility.
He embraces passivity, acts from non-action and conquers the world.

Tao Cheng, 11th century Taoist poet

This a wonderful piece. I keep coming back to it many times especially in times of confusion, moments when some role model seems necessary.  And anytime I’m back there is still something new to read in between the lines, to better understand and use the advice.

It is also very specific text. Written 10 centuries ago, born in a different culture, it still carries messages which ring the bell now. It does for me. It does for many whom I have introduced to it. 

Does the poem resonate for you? Perhaps as a role model, as a supporter in difficult moments of life, or simply when thinking about that Thing called Life.

Learn basic techniques with family, friends, or loved ones.

This workshop is an introduction for those who may be interested in the full Head, Neck, and Shoulders Relaxation course (a 36 hour, in-depth training), or for anyone who just wants to learn the basics.

At this level, techniques are practiced fully clothed while sitting in a regular chair, making it possible to use them in everyday situations when your family, partner, or client requires help the most. Part of this training is dedicated to developing the student’s ability to recognize the signs of energetic blockages in the face and posture.

As a relationship progresses through time and weathers life’s difficulties, mutual feelings can cool and grow distant. Through the Couple’s Workshop you create a time in which to reverse that process.

You will meet your partner in a new situation; freeing you to learn and practice how to understand their energetic needs, and release the existing tension and tiredness you’re both holding on to. You will leave with the experience and practice to take home and enjoy the prolonged benefits to yourselves and your relationship.

The Couple’s Workshop is an element of the Head, Neck and Shoulders Relaxation Certification training program. Andrzej encourages those who are interested to learn more about certification, taking the opportunity to practice more and help others. Take a moment to contact Andrzej for more information.

Andrzej practicing Qi Gong


Andrzej’s passion is to share with others the experience of wellness that comes from restoring one’s connection to the natural world and to one’s inherent energetic blueprint. His intense interest in healing arose from his own positive experiences with Qi Gong and Zen meditation in overcoming personal health challenges. His goal of self-healing eventually expanded to a desire to help others, leading to study at the Ohashiatsu Institute in New York. 20+ years of facilitating healing and wellness through Shiatsu and Qi Gong have led Andrzej to incorporate, but move beyond a deep knowledge of physical and energetic anatomy to a highly intuitive awareness of energy. Each individual session is customized: He assesses the client’s unique energetic structure, as well as physical issues. Techniques from many different energetic healing traditions are used to address energy blockages and distortions, and to introduce more beneficial patterns. Sessions include not only hands on treatment, but also guidance as to specific energetic exercises that support the individual client’s health needs.

Andrzej believes that many of today’s health problems are related to a disconnection with nature, causing distorted energy patterns that ultimately translate into physical complaints. Noting common health challenges that are affecting many of his clients, he has developed special Shiatsu and Qi Gong classes that are organized around specific themes.
