Openings and Closings: Heaven & Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands

Durham, NC, United States
1 July 2018 - 7 July 2018

We are excited to announce the first Energy Arts residential Summer retreats in many years.  ON-SITE ACCOMODATION IS ALREADY SOLD OUT

Deep below the surface of all authentic Taoist energy practices is the subtle opening and closing of your joints, circulatory system, internal organs, and cavities, which radiate outward to set the rhythm for the rest of your body and movements. If you learn how to control these subtle movements, then you learn how to harness the power of Qi in your physical and energetic bodies.

Openings and closings is one of the MOST important internal energy practices (Neigong) used to supercharge Qi development. In fact, openings and closings are so fundamental to Taoist energy arts that without them, you don’t have Tai Chi, Qigong, Bagua, Internal Martial Arts, or even meditation.

During this week long retreat Bruce will teach the practice of Openings and Closings neigong inside Heaven & Earth Qigong and Tai Chi Circling Hands.

Tai Chi for Taoist Meditation

Chicago, IL, United States
12 October 2018 - 14 October 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: Wu Style Short and Medium Forms

Durham, NC, United States
24 June 2018 - 30 June 2018

We are excited to announce the first Energy Arts residential Summer retreat in many years. Where Bruce will share his 40 plus years of experience practicing and teaching Tai chi, including his knowledge as a lineage holder in both the Wu style and Yang style of tai chi. On-site accommodation is limited, so register now. (SINGLES ARE ALREADY SOLD OUT)

Wu style tai chi is the second most popular style in the world. It was created directly from Yang Style Tai Chi and as such is the largest variant of the Yang style. However, unlike most traditions in Yang style Tai Chi, most Wu tai chi schools emphasize small, compact movements over large and medium-sized ones. The Yang and Wu tai chi styles, with all their variations, encompass the vast majority (80 percent or more) of all tai chi practitioners.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to learn the Wu Style Tai Chi form from the only known lineage holder of Wu and Yang style tai chi and Taoist meditation teacher in the West.If you have ever wanted to learn tai chi, this summer is the best time! The Wu Style Tai Chi Long Form that Bruce teaches was developed by Wu style co-founder Wu Jien Chuan. He personally taught it to Liu Hung Chieh, who taught it to Bruce. Bruce developed his Wu Style Short and Medium Form from this Long Form with the encouragement of his teacher Liu.
