The TAO Space presents Summer 2021
VIRTUAL TRAINING CAMP
Expand Your Inner Awareness, Deepen Your Practice, & Integrate Your Body’s Energy
with Bruce Frantzis & Senior Instructor Craig Barnes
A Personal Invitation from Bruce Frantzis
All of life is in constant flow and motion. Underlying that flow is a stillness, but it’s only evident when you learn to recognize it.
No matter what you do or where you go…you have a body. You have a mind. You have a spirit.
For millennia Taoist adepts have been well known for their ability to integrate the various aspects of the mind, body, and spirit (three treasures) together to generate profound positive change. It’s the root of health, strength, and feeling more alive and balanced. Our summer events this year are designed to help you to do just that.
Summer is a time of fullness and possibility. It’s when not only nature is expressing itself fully, but the energy within you is doing the same. This makes it a perfect time to set a new trajectory and learn new skills.
Traditionally, that’s one of the reasons why the worldwide Energy Arts community gathers together to train intensively each summer. Now as things begin to normalize we’re actually able to host in-person events again this season.
Yet many areas of the world are still struggling hard, and travel is difficult. So we’re thankful that we can make this year’s training available to you online where you can join in virtually as if you were right here in the Tao Space center, from wherever you are in the world.
Just like keeping the continuity inside of our community in the face of uncertainty and change is important, doing the same in your own practice and life is truly beneficial.
The focus of this year’s events will be infusing Taoist meditation into the practices of qigong, tai chi, and bagua to produce higher levels of skill, continuity, and integration. These are essential qualities for beginning and advanced students alike.
Here is what we’ll be covering together…
July 17-18, 2021:
Tai Chi Circling Hands is a perfect “container” to develop qi and internal skill. The weekend will help boost your energy to go deeper in the subsequent meditation courses.
July 24-25, 2021:
Taoist Moving Meditation learn the techniques, perspectives, and path to upgrade your moving practice of qigong, tai chi, and/or bagua into genuine transformative meditation.
July 31 – August 1, 2021:
Taoist Moving Meditation Master Bruce Frantzis continues to expand the past weekend’s material. Leading students further into the rarely taught aspects of Taoist moving meditation.
Plus Guided Practices Sessions: Three guided follow-up sessions are included each week to review and absorb what you learned during the previous weekend workshop. Led by Senior Instructor Craig Barnes.
Each week, you will receive lessons from our expert trainers and guest faculty. When you take the course you’ll get recordings and lifetime access.
Meditation is at the root of all the internal arts. Whether qigong, tai chi, bagua, or related arts…it’s the source code from which they sprang.
From a Taoist perspective, not only can these practices integrate, but they DO each and every moment of your existence. Your life happens moving. Your meditation can too. Doing so is a specialty of our Taoist lineage.
Learning meditation enriches and informs all of your internal practices, and more importantly your experience of life. It doesn’t have to be something mysterious and beyond you, it’s something that anyone with a mind can learn to do and benefit from whether you’re simply trying to find more balance and healthy emotions, or if you’re drawn to exploring the depth of your being.
We’re going to have a rewarding time immersing ourselves into these arts this summer, and I’d like to extend a warm invitation for you to join us.
See you soon,
“One of the greatest secrets of chi practices is that, no matter what your age or health condition when you start, you can improve and keep improving.”
– Bruce Frantzis

Virtual Training Camp
Weekend series 1
Tai Chi Circling Hands:
Exploring Neigong, Circularity, & Qi
Tai Chi Circling Hands is one of the best possible ways to begin or deepen an existing qigong, tai chi, or other internal arts practice. The movements themselves can be learned quickly, yet yield an incredible depth while also acting as a container for learning advanced skills.
In this weekend workshop, you will learn how to understand and embody continuous circularity in body and mind, integrate the upper and lower bodies together for better balance and function, learn how to work with the energy field, plus much more!
All of these practices will help you enhance your existing tai chi & qigong forms by deepening your “neigong” (internal skill). This course is an excellent physical preparation for the subsequent moving meditation weekends.
Saturday & Sunday (July 17-18) Instructional Broadcast Schedule
Mountain (MDT): 9 AM – 3 PM / Includes a 2hr lunch break
Tuesday – Thursday (July 20-22) Guided Practice Broadcast Schedule
Mountain (MDT): 10:30 AM – 11:15 AM
Weekend Series 2
Stillness in Movement:
Tai Chi & Bagua as Meditation
Taoist Moving Meditation is a type of meditation that helps connect you to the deepest layers of yourself, resolve the blockages and traumas of the conscious and unconscious mind, and help you feel fully present, alive, and spontaneous no matter what life throws your way.
In this course, Taoist Lineage Master Bruce Frantzis will lead students into using their moving practice of tai chi and bagua as genuine, transformative meditation.
All skill levels are welcome. The tai chi and bagua quickstart sessions included in the course can help you learn basic choreography if you do not have an existing form.
Teaching will be alternated between tai chi and bagua throughout the duration of both meditation weekends, allowing the common threads and contrasts between the two arts to deepen the training.
For beginning students:
- Keeping the mind stable while moving with the eyes open
- What you need to do in the physical body to allow access to a meditative mind state
- Identifying the sense of how energy is flowing through you and how your breath and intention affects that flow
For experienced students:
- Deepening your internal awareness and expanding it to include the body and energetic field as a continuous whole
- Feeling the primary energy channels of the body and recognizing how the qi of the body is moving within them
Saturday & Sunday (July 24-25) Instructional Broadcast ScheduleMountain (MDT): 9 AM – 3 PM / Includes a 2hr lunch break
Tuesday – Thursday (July 27-29) Guided Practice Broadcast Schedule Mountain (MDT): 10:30 AM – 11:15 AM
Weekend Series 3
July 31 – August 5
Stillness in Movement:
Tai Chi & Bagua as Meditation
Taoists mapped the energetic continuum between body, energy, mind, and spirit (or jing, qi, shen). This roadmap connected the opening of the body and energy, to realize the potential of consciousness and spirit. These things are not seen as separate, but rather supporting each other as an integrated whole that leads to the core of who and what you are.
This course will be giving you real techniques and practical steps on a path toward exploring your body, energy, and mind using moving meditation as your vehicle.
For beginning students:
- Using neigong and qigong to fuel meditation
- Finding stillness in the midst of activity and the speed of daily life
- How the qi of the primary channels is affected by the inner world of your emotions, perceptions, psychic influences, and karmic conditions
- Becoming aware of the heart-mind and opening the three tantiens
- Understanding how your inner world and what is perceived as the outer world join, balance, and go beyond toward contacting your spiritual nature
Saturday & Sunday (July 31 – Aug 1) Instructional Broadcast Schedule Mountain (MDT): 9 AM – 3 PM / Includes a 2hr lunch break
Tuesday – Thursday (Aug 3-5) Guided Practice Broadcast Schedule Mountain (MDT): 10:30 AM – 11:15 AM

What People are Saying:
“What a wonderful first week of Summer Camp for me. I just want to thank ALL of you. I’ve had a little experience with Qigong, and this is providing a way for me to experience so much more. Thanks for the encouragement to go at my own pace, AND to practice daily. Looking forward to more. The practice sessions during the week are extraordinary. I start with discomfort and some soreness, and end up feeling great!
“Can’t say enough just how valuable the summer retreat course was for me. Uncanny how Bruce’s teaching resonates with other approaches to health, enlightenment, and freedom that I’ve pursued for decades. Verifies how truth, once found, remains universal truth just presented in another vessel to suit the times. You made it possible for me to afford this adventure. I shall not forget your generosity“
“It has been an amazing experience. I am in awe of the amount and depth of the material presented. Everything was top notch – the instruction, the demonstrations, the efforts of everyone in front of the camera and behind the scenes. The whole retreat was well orchestrated and delivered.
“I enjoy following and doing the trainings. It gives me wonderful new input, adding to my practice very well. I enjoy doing it at my place. It’s a bit strange to have your well known voices at my home, at the same time it is nice to hear them. I like following the schedule live here in Europe and having the chance to follow at later time when I ‘m unable to follow live.“
“Hi, just wanted to say that the summer virtual camp was very impressive both for the content and the high level of organization surrounding the presentations. Your team did a very good job of it.“
