Dominic Vine of the Owls has practiced in various traditions and medicines since his youth. He began his path in Taoism at age 15, his path of yoga and meditation at age 18 and his path of Shamanism at age 19. Until his mid thirties he mostly followed his own intuition and direct revelation. In recent years he has taken formal trainings and many retreats of formal practice. He taught a weekly class of yoga and qigong for over a decade while living in New York City. He spent 12 years of his youth traveling the world, from living in communes of study to roaming cities looking for meaning. After a decade of living in New York City, he has returned to his life on the wind, teaching individual students as well as classes, in person and remotely. He recently completed a certification residency in Thailand in the Universal Healing Tao system by Mantak Chia, as well as such practices as walking over 600 miles across Spain on pilgrimage, and sitting over three months in a silent meditation retreat.
