The Tao is the source of life and literally translates as ‘The Way’. It is a path of health and longevity, inspired by the forces of nature, heaven and earth.

Taoism is a practical system of body, mind and spirit. The self-healing practices cultivate energy and vitality, restore youthfulness, harmonise emotions and allow you to delve deep into your own spiritual nature. As you learn to love and heal yourself, you grow also to love and help others. By realising the true wisdom of your Inner Universe you can live life to your greatest potential and in harmony with the Tao.

The teachings of Universal Healing Tao have been transmitted to the West by Grandmaster Mantak Chia. He has learned the ancient formulas of Inner Alchemy from a long, unbroken lineage of Taoist Masters, sharing practices that are over 5,000 years old.


“Fantastic course! I noticed a marked difference in my ability to overcome anxiety and an increased feeling of groundedness. Thank you very much!”

“There was so much knowledge and experience shared and the lighthearted and approachable teaching style was fabulous. Gorgeous venue (Gorse Hill). Great to be able to do so much practice outdoors – it really helped tune in to the earth energy. Thanks so much Máire and Olivier for a great weekend”

“This was wonderful. I’ve felt so much less tired since it began. Also I feel as though I’m more connected to what’s going on inside my body. The Inner Smile meditation was my favourite. I’ve really enjoyed using some of the practices with my class and can see an instant calming effect on them. I’ve already recommended the course to friends. Thanks so much”

Katie, (Primary School Teacher) Tao of Vitality @ Fumbally Stables

“Loved Máire’s Kuan Yin Retreat for women. The time and space in the country allowed for a deepening awareness of the senses, which in turn lead to a deepening feeling of my own sensuality. Máire is an intuitive, nurturing and inspiring teacher who brings out the greatness innate in each of us. Would highly recommend a retreat with Máire”

Dee Mc. Women’s Retreat, Co Mayo

“A lovely workshop, so warm and inviting, having never done it before I felt I learned lots and at a very comfortable and invigorating pace. Also some imbalance I had, where one knee always seemed shorter than the other, was corrected. Looking forward to the next workshop.”

“Máire has a really nice energy that is contagious and makes it easy to enjoy her classes. I would highly recommend her teaching as I feel this experience has forever changed my life for the better.”
