Book an Event based on Tao’s Teachings

Do you wish you had insights from almost a century of wisdom and/or learn energy techniques not taught elsewhere? Experience the teachings of Tao Porchon-Lynch through her student and biographer, Dr. Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy. She has taught yoga and meditation for twenty years and did 66 events with Tao spanning 10 countries. Whether it is a women’s empowerment conference, 50+gathering, yoga or business event, she can tailor an experience for your audience. Just as business owners may decide to introduce audio-visual production in their events, (see resource here) to help make their presentation more appealing to their eagerly-awaiting audience members, Dr. Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy does the same through her own personal methods. Below are sample programs:

The Tao Experience (or Tao Porchon Yoga)

The Tao Experience is a workshop based on the yoga and philosophy teachings of Tao Porchon-Lynch–a mix of yoga, meditation, deep relaxation and inspiration.

In this immersive “on-the-mat” session, participants will:

  • Use the four pillars of yoga: pranayama (breath work), mudras (gestures), bandhas (energetic locks) and chakras (energy centers) to explore the rich potential of the body to renew, heal and revitalize.

  • Practice Tao’s special “yoga tango” integrating breath, movement and music, and experience a deeply absorbing meditation–inspiring compassion and inner peace.

  • Learn Tao’s “secrets” to vitality and boundless energy via techniques that are not taught elsewhere.

  • Have the opportunity to ask questions about Tao from her biographer who traveled with her extensively.

Participants will walk away inspired, strengthened and renewed–ready to energize their yoga practice and craft a vibrant “Tao-like” life! Workshops are usually 90 minutes. Terri can tailor programs for beginners, as well as intermediate students–including two back-to-back sessions.

Inspiration from a Master

Inspiration from a Master is an offshoot of the popular Conversation With A Master that Tao and Terri did around the world. Be enthralled by Tao’s journey on multiple continents as a World War II French Resistance fighter, actress, model, producer, and entrepreneur, while you learn her approach to overcoming obstacles and living mindfully. This multimedia slideshow is led by Tao’s student and biographer, Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy–Harvard Business School-trained strategist, yoga teacher and wellness empowerment coach.

In this engaging session, participants will:

  • Hear stories about historical icons such as Mahatma Gandhi, General Charles de Gaulle, Ernest Hemingway, Coco Chanel, Marilyn Monroe, Marlene Dietrich, the Maharishi and others.

  • Explore concepts such as Oneness and mindfulness, and gain insights on topics such as mental attitude, follow-through/procrastination, and dealing with disappointments.

  • Learn Tao’s “secrets” to vitality and boundless energy, and experience her special meditation.

  • Have the opportunity to ask questions only hindsight and living history can answer.

Participants will walk away inspired and informed–ready to craft a fearless and fulfilled “Tao-like” life! Since Tao’s life is so rich with stories and insights, Terri can tailor the program to your needs.

The Gandhi Effect

The Gandhi Effect: Transform Yourself and the World Around You debuted to a standing room-only audience at the 2011 Newark Peace Education Summit that headlined His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Using the teachings of Gandhi as the backdrop, Harvard-trained empowerment coach Teresa Kay-Aba Kennedy will share insights and practical tools for personal transformation. Gandhi believed that all people can shape and guide their lives according to the highest ideals, and that personal change and the ability to bring about social change are linked. Through intention and conscious action, we can collectively prepare the ground for “the world of tomorrow” today.

In this interactive workshop, participants will:

  • Hear insights from the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi.

  • Learn strategies and techniques for setting up their own “experiments with Truth” and creating “zones of peace” in their lives through tools such as breath control and meditation.

  • Explore concepts such as Oneness and mindfulness, and use language to bring compassion to all of their relationships.

  • Align personal values with opportunities for social impact, and practice ways to support their work as change agents.

They will learn how to apply these techniques to modern-day situations and use them as tools for more energy, productivity, creativity, joy, prosperity and peace. Participants will walk away inspired and informed–ready to craft a fearless and fulfilled “Tao-like” life! This program was created by Teresa Kennedy at the Young Global Leader Summit / World Economic Forum event in Tanzania in May 2010.
