Flowing in Stillness: a 4-day retreat co-facilitated by Dr. David Parrish and Bill Moore

“Awareness is the root of T’ai Chi Chih, which is essentially inner-oriented. Circularity is the fundamental and softness & continuity are the Essence.” Justin Stone, Originator

This retreat is for anyone familiar with the T’ai Chi Chih movements; students and teachers alike are welcome. Join us as we discover ‘being the space’ in which the movements flow and establish awareness as a real and present aspect of the T’ai Chi Chih practice.

Dr. David Parrish teaches meditation and T’ai Chi Chih and has authored two books on the experience of the conscious awareness that is the essence of T’ai Chi Chih. David will assist us in feeling the essence of awareness as our true nature so that we can realize the stillness in the midst of activity.

Bill Moore  is a well-known teacher of T’ai Chi Chih and Seijaku (advanced T’ai Chi Chih). Special attention will be paid to the initiation of weight shifts, and the six principles of the T’ai Chi Chih Practice, in realizing this deepening awareness. Bill will guide us to flow rather than move, as Justin Stone often emphasized. The flow of movement and chi in the space of heightened awareness will be realized as a deeper experience of this exquisite practice.

We are excited about the opportunity to share the marriage of meditation and movement that is the heart of T’ai Chi Chih practice.
