Flowing Like Water, Strong as a Mountain: Tai Chi Retreat

Larry Welsh

April 25–27, 2014

Tuition $190 + 2 nights

This program has been CANCELLED.  The ancient practice of Tai Chi Chuan has often been called the “supreme ultimate exercise.”  When joined with mindfulness sitting meditation, these two forms bring forth a potent way to awaken health and restore well-being in body, mind, and spirit. During this in-depth retreat, we will discover the wellspring of our own intrinsic health and sanity through the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, and enjoy authentic relaxation through the wisdom of the Five Elements and Five Seasonal Movements of Life. We will return home with a powerful practice that enhances flow, flexibility, strength, relationships, and deeper peace throughout each day of our lives. All age groups are welcome.

Please read and bring There Are No Secrets by Wolfe Lowenthal and Practicing Peace in Times of War by Pema Chödrön. These books will guide our study and deepen our embodiment of Tai Chi and meditation.
