Regular practice of tai chi has profound effects on our neuro-biology. Through the centuries the Chinese have utilized tai chi as a healing art. We now have current medical research to confirm the power of tai chi as an optimal preventive and restorative healing technique.
Participants will learn authentic, Yang style tai chi through Kenn Chase’s unique Integral Way practice, which incorporates Feldenkrais™, Awareness through Movement™, chi gung, and meditation techniques. Didactic sessions will be included to enhance understanding of medical, psychological, and philosophical applications.
Integral Way Tai Chi™ is an organic, evolving process of consciousness — a special domain in which we enhance and deepen our sense of self. This synchronistic interplay of mind-body-awareness leads ultimately to a more comprehensive and complete experience. It is a moment-by-moment meditation of who we are and how we live. At the conclusion of the workshop, there will be an excursion to the New Camaldoli hermitage for group meditation and to the spectacular Sand Dollar beach for tai chi by the sea!
This workshop is appropriate for health care professionals wishing to incorporate tai chi and/or stress management.
