Patrick A Kelly


Immersed 45yrs in the 3 great esoteric streams, Patrick presents an intelligent synthesis of Daoist/Buddhist, Gnostic/Sufi & Yogic internal-work.

Patrick has a world network of 100 instructors teaching thousands of students. He has authored 4 books on Taiji & meditation (in English, French, German, Italian, Chinese).

3 Teachers

Patrick began his esoteric studies in the 70s, with 3 main teachers.

He trained Gnostic inner knowledge with Naqshibandi Sufi Sheikh Abdullah Dougan (1918–1987).

He practiced Daoist Taiji with one of the most accomplished Taiji masters of recent times, Master Huang Xingxian (1908–1992).

Patrick studied Raja Yoga with the Rajasthani Yogi Mouni Maharaj (1900?–2007).

3 Streams

This true contact, external and internal, with the 3 great streams of esoteric teachings – Asian, Indian, Middle-Eastern/European – now supports Patrick's teaching, which leads deeply inside towards the one formless Source, which has no name.

Worldwide Schools

At the express wish of his teachers, with the aim of making available the esoteric principles of internal development through the practice of true Taiji, inner-refinement and meditation, Patrick established a Europe wide teaching network.

This is a loose association of mature intelligent practitioners, with no committees, no fees, no rules, no obligations, no organisation to join and none to leave – people simply practice what is taught with more or less energy and intelligence according to their choice.

Within it 100 senior practitioners (21+ years with Patrick) along with 150 close practitioners (14 to 20 years with Patrick) teach some thousands of students through their fully independent schools.

Patrick's lifelong experiences within these 3 great esoteric streams, enliven his teaching

This worldwideway might condense to a few words:
"Seek a broad balance of life experience"
"Deepen consciousness"
"Reach for the Beyond"

"Seek a broad balance of life experience"

– harm no-one, help those near to you
– understand others, change yourself
– stay positive no matter what life brings

This will tune your outer life to your Inner Being – rather than the gross reactions of the body and brain ruling the inner life, as is the case for unrefined people
(Abdullah Dougan: make the body obedient)

"Deepen consciousness"

Use any helpful exercises or meditations, inward through the 3 levels of human existence, Deep-body, Deep-emotional and Deep-mental (etheric, astral and celestial or jing, qi, shen)

– give respect to those who pass down the teaching
– feel grateful for the teaching
– be humble in the face of the high forces behind the teaching

This will allow your Inner Being, within those 3 spheres of human existence, to gradually move its base deeper within the inner worlds
(Abdullah Dougan: make the inner being passive)

"Reach for the Beyond"

Realise, as the Beyond grows within, that your outer human existence is next to nothing

This will cause the inner being to gradually dissolve its outer structure and merge with the True Self
(Abdullah Dougan: destroy the ego)
