BEGINNER TAI CHI

For beginners of all ages and abilities, this is a 6 week introduction to the ancient Chinese martial art, exercise, and moving meditation known as T'ai Chi Chuan. This dedicated Series is designed so that students will learn several postures each week and by week 6, perform the complete 13 posture Yang form. Students can count on taking home two things from every class - a new T’ai Chi posture, and a few moments of stillness gained in the renowned “flow” of T’ai Chi. To aid students with their practice, the teacher provides “class notes” via email, and access to his own YouTube videos of individual postures as well as the complete Form.

THE PRACTICE OF BODHICITTA:  BE COMPASSION

“The Best dharma practice, the most perfect, most substantial, is without doubt the practice of bodhicitta.”

Bodhicitta is simply to open our hearts to all sentient beings with compassion. It’s often called the “Wish Fulfilling Jewel,” because like a magic jewel it brings true happiness. This unique workshop will open up with a discussion about the Bodhicitta way and into a guided meditation on Bodhicitta. After, you will move into various subtle stretches to open the body slightly and then ease into a yin/ restorative sequence to relax more and feel the ground beneath you. It is a time to quiet the mind and open the connected tissues as well as restore the nervous system of the body. It will end with an extended blissful savasana.
