To be truly creative is to learn not to consciously control yourself with preconceived restrictions, but to allow yourself the freedom to flow. Taoist wisdom calls it Wu Wei: not interfering with what is already happening.

During this weeklong workshop, we will playfully reinvent Tai Ji forms with ancient Tai Ji rituals, Five Moving Forces of Nature, and traditional Tai Ji motifs. We will explore, improvise, and evolve to find renewal and refreshed ways to dance the open structures of this ancient wonder of movement meditation.

With more than 50 consecutive years of teaching experiences since the founding of Esalen, Master Huang will share his unique ways of imparting Tai Ji experience to all levels of practitioners. Come enjoy this creative “Living Your Tao” Tai Ji experience.
