Tai Chi and Qigong: A Look Beyond the Practical

LIVE Seminar Series
Fortnightly from August 2020
Suitable for anyone interested in learning more about the theory behind Taiji and Qigong
Numbers limited to allow for interaction

Tai Chi and Qigong offer us so much more than simply moving our bodies. Each discipline has a complex history, is embedded with rich philosophical concepts, stories, mysteries and practicalities. Both have their roots in the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic dated from the 3rd Century BCE, and grew up on the famous mountains of China including Song, Wudang, Emei, Hua and Tai.

Why do you need to know more than the routines? Because the theory behind them, how to research more information, what they are based on, where their philosophical, canonical and medicinal roots are will continue to influence and develop your practice for the rest of your life.

So, join us on the start of this fascinating journey into what lies behind and beyond the basic practice of any Routine.

Sessions will be conducted via Zoom Teleconferencing.

Numbers will be limited to enable timely interaction. All questions and discussions encouraged.

Sundays 10.00 to 11.00am inc. Time for Questions.
