Tai Chi for Taoist Meditation
October 12, 2018 - October 14, 2018
Tai Chi as Taoist meditation goes beyond improving physical health and martial skills. It can deepen your consciousness and resolve your inner mental, emotional, psychic and spiritual blockages.
Tai Chi can awaken and free the soul or spirit, to bring more joy, balance and compassion into your life. Bruce learned these methods from Taoist and tai chi Lineage Master Liu Hung Chieh in Beijing.
Tai Chi is commonly referred to as moving meditation. Tai Chi’s slow, graceful movements can be used as a meditation to provide relaxed focus, to quiet the monkey mind and to engender a deep sense of relaxation that helps release inner tensions. Eventually it can become a means for deepening your awareness of and ability to relax on all levels of your being.
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to learn from Bruce, how to truly use tai chi as a moving meditation.
Tai Chi practitioners of all styles are welcome. Beginners will learn a condensed version of the Wu style short form containing the major principles of all tai chi styles into which they can incorporate these meditation techniques. Time permitting, Bruce may also explain how to apply these techniques to ba gua and hsing-i.
Possible topics include:
- Using the eyes and ears as gateways to meditation
- Releasing and resolving your inner self-images, ghosts and demons, using breath, inner dissolving and circular movement
- Connecting your mind and spirit to the lower tantien
- Moving beyond the pressures of time
- Connecting to stillness in movement and movement in stillness.
