"This week, we will re-invent tai ji forms playfully with ancient Tai Ji rituals, Five Moving Forces of Nature, as well as traditional Tai Ji motifs,” Chungliang Al Huang writes. “We will explore, improvise, and evolve, to find renewal and refreshed ways to dance the open structures of this ancient wonder of movement meditation.
