T’ai Chi Chih Teacher Retreat
April 7-10, 2022
Oceanside, California

Led by Sandy McAlister, Guide of the TCC Community
Hosted by Pam Towne, TCC Teacher Trainer


Re-Connecting to your TCC practice, to each other in person, to the group Chi, to the TCC Community.

RELAX and retreat from everyday activities on the beautiful grounds of the hilltop Benedictine Abbey. Enjoy quiet time walking peaceful garden paths or sitting in the Meditation Garden.

REFINE your movements, deepen your T’ai Chi Chih practice, and cultivate both the Prana (Energy) and Prajna (Wisdom) aspects of the Chi!

RENEW your body, mind, and spirit in this nurturing and serene setting.

Designed for teachers of T’ai Chi Chih to deepen your understanding and experience of this essentially spiritual form of moving meditation. This is also a wonderful opportunity to connect with other teachers from around the country and to learn first-hand from Sandy and Pam.

Bring along a spouse or friend (over age 18). This is a great place to hike, read, do photography, artwork, or simply relax in a serene setting. We’ll be about 4 miles from the beach and 4 miles from the historic  Mission San Luis Rey.
