Become a Path of Dao Master Practicioner

“Often I have been asked to offer a Teachers Training. Handling this request has been very difficult for me for a long time. In my perspective, producing or fabricating teachers is impossible to do.

Like everything in Daoism, growing into a teacher is a natural process and it should be. So, there is not too much that me and you can do.

But what I can and will do within our new “becoming program”, is to make you a good practitioner. This has in fact always been my first and foremost intention within all my teaching.

Practice is the way to progress, to deepen understanding and skill. Our way is a practical way. The way of practice. Practice means or equals experience. If your practice becomes profound, you will be(come) very experienced. When you’re very experienced, you have answers. Even if you don’t aspire to be a teacher, you will have the skills to teach, to guide and help others, as you have answers to their questions.

This program aims to make your practice profound – to make you a super-practitioner.

With this program I want to come closer to the ones that aspire. I want to be in a regular exchange, staying in connection with you to oversee your practice, growth and progress.“

Let's "become"!

This program is for you, if:

  • you are already teaching Path of Dao methods and techniques
  • you wish to become a Path of Dao instructor in the nearer or further future

but mostly if:

  • you want to deepen your understanding and skill
  • you search for more efficiency in your practice
  • you wish to assure progression, transformation and change
  • you have lack of motivation and you need support of a group and teacher
  • you practice alone without correction or guidance
  • you practice with our online exercises and your practice rises questions
  • you are looking for inspiration
  • you want to be a part of a supportive group

If you join this program you will get access to a private and supportive online group.

A close, regular, personal connection to your teacher is indispensable in this process. The “BECOMING” PROGRAM is designed to provide this.

The meetings are held in English. All Inspiration Circles will be recorded.

The sessions are going to be fully moderated by an experienced host.

This will help to manage all questions, the energy in the group as well as creating a space where each participant can freely share his/her feelings, doubts, questions and intimate experience.

You have the opportunity to hand in questions or topics beforehand - may they concern your practice, health, philosophical and spiritual background, inspiring texts, movies, …. life and living.

Be aware that the energy in the circles is created by all of us!

The focus of the circles lies not in a guided practice, but in deepening our understanding, as well as in sharing with and benefitting from each other.

These meetings are aimed to bring a core group of aspiring students closer together.

Please note:

  • The program will be held in English
  • The program is structured as an annual package. Ideally you enroll at the beginning of the year. You always have the possibility though to join the program (as a practitioner or instructor) during the year. You will pay the price for the annual package “inspiration circle” and will get access to all recordings.

If you feel inspired to lead a group, we encourage you to do so!

As a future instructor you will attend the inspiration circle. Besides, you are advised to be present in workshops/retreats and regular classes according to your possibilities. Furthermore you are asked to hand in a formless application describing your thoughts and motivations to become a Path of Dao instructor. Hand in this declaration via email as you decide to go the path of an instructor. This decision and application can happen anytime.

After receiving your application you will be contacted to set up a consultation (100 euro) with Ron to better understand your needs, motivation and also set up your individual training to become a Path of Dao instructor.

Be aware that there is no predefined time frame and road for becoming an instructor. This very individual process depends only on your abilities, engagement and growth and will be closely accompanied by Ron. He alone will give you permission to teach Path Of Dao methods.
