Our jade eggs are the highest quality nephrite jade from the mountains of Canada. They are hand-carved and come guaranteed that no chemicals or toxins are used in creating them. Nephrite jade is non-porous, making them hygienic and safe for this intimate Taoist practice.
Taoism is well famed for its female adepts, and the prominence of the feminine both literally and symbolically is documented throughout its history. The secret teachings of Taoist women, known as the Immortal Sisters, were closely guarded secrets for thousands of years, but thankfully this wisdom and knowledge is available to us now. The jade egg is one aspect of these practices, sometimes referred to as Sexual Kung Fu.
Sexual energy is the nourishment of the totality of ourselves – body, mind and spirit. In the Taoist tradition sexual energy is much more than the act of sex, as it permeates all areas of our lives. It is the roots of life, influencing health, longevity and emotional well-being. It is also the energy that can create spiritual fulfilment, as it is a force that unifies with Source and creates harmony from opposites.
The jade egg has a myriad of benefits when done as part of a complete Taoist practice. On a physical level, it helps tone the pelvic floor and PC muscle, also known as the Love Muscle! A strong PC muscle increases orgasmic ability and conserves chi/life force. Regular use of the jade egg, along with the Ovarian Breathing practice, can help to balance hormones and relieve symptoms of PMS or menopause. The sexual reflexology points within your vagina or Jade Fountain (ancient Taoist term) are activated which stimulates the vitality of the organs. On an emotional level, it may help release past traumas and negative sexual experiences. On a spiritual level, the jade egg connects you with Source and the sacred feminine within.
In the Tao, we understand sexual energy as deeply resourceful as it can be easily multiplied. It can be transformed into a more usable form of energy (Chi), which nourishes and revitalises the organs and glands. And then transformed to a higher-grade spiritual energy (Shen) to nourish our Soul and Spirit.
Whilst there are many possible benefits to the jade egg, consistency of practice is key, along with your intention and dedication.
Please note: The jade egg is not an alternative or substitute for medical treatment or care.
Learning to use your Jade Egg:
Your jade egg comes complete with an instruction leaflet and a storage pouch. The jade egg practice is best done with prior knowledge of the Inner Smile, Healing Sounds and Microcosmic Orbit, and regular practice of Qigong/ Chi Kung – the Foundations of the Tao. These provide grounding and rooting to safely move sexual energy. We place great emphasis on emotional balance as a precursor to jade egg practice.
To learn the practice, it is best to attend a course with a certified Universal Healing Tao Instructor. Book a place below on our weekend workshop, with Máire Ní G, providing the complete Taoist Yin practice including learning how to use your jade egg.
