Explore Tai Chi and Embodiment


Come join us for a stimulating and healing weekend.

Tai Chi is a way of cultivating our true nature – the harmony of body, heart, mind and spirit. An ancient Chinese martial art and moving meditation, the correct practice of Tai Chi over time leads to deep mental and physical relaxation, profound coordination of mind and body, and the liberation of the flow of energy (Qi). Developed over the last 700 years, Tai Chi has stood the test of time. In our high stress world it is one of the most direct and easily embodied approaches to bring peace, alertness and creativity to the mind, and
health and longevity to the body.

This retreat will be of value to both beginners and experienced alike. Participants will learn the physical and psychological principles of Tai Chi, a set of relaxing exercises, a short section of the Tai Chi Form and explore simple pushing hands (practiced with a partner). Further instruction will be available for experienced students. There will be sitting meditation and exploration of the relationship of Tai Chi to structural alignment and daily body usage. Some time will also be given to the healing power of touch.
