T’ai Chi Chih® Intensive
June 17-21, 2024
Prince of Peace Abbey Retreat Center Oceanside, California
Led by Teacher Trainer, Pam Towne
Hosted by Marie Dotts

Designed for teachers, teacher candidates, and serious students.


The focus of the Intensive will be on How to Move well for the greatest flow of Chi.

Flowing from the Center, Yinning and Yanging correctly, and Moving with Softness.

The heart of the Intensive will be refining & deepening your T’ai Chi Chih practice.

Teachers will also learn to develop a discerning eye for seeing what corrections students need, as well as knowing when they are ready for Teacher Accreditation … and when they are not. You will have a wonderful opportunity to connect with Pam and other teachers, as well as earn 30 hours of CEUs.

Teacher Candidates will receive a required part of your preparation for the Teacher Accreditation course, and leave knowing what you still need to work on beforehand.

Serious Students (who have practiced regularly for at least a year) will immerse themselves in T’ai Chi Chih, gaining a greater flow of Chi, as well as a deeper understanding and appreciation of this beneficial practice.

Limited to 20 participants, so reserve your space now!
