Meditation & Tai Chi: Finding Stillness Within Movement with Larry Welsh
October 2–4, 2009
Tai Chi and mindfulness meditation uncover our inherent gentleness, stability, presence, and flexibility. By profoundly reducing stress and increasing our ability to respond to everyday life with awareness, balance, and skill, we discover the precious medicines for this era of impatience, anxiety, and hurry. In this retreat, beginning practitioners will learn the basics of sitting meditation and Tai Chi. Advanced practitioners will focus on integrating these two wisdom traditions.
