* REJUVENATE Your PRACTICE * T’ai Chi Chih Teachers Virtual Retreat Via Zoom

Led by Sandy McAlister, Guide of the T’ai Chi Chih Community, and Hosted by Pam Towne, TCC Teacher Trainer

RELAX and retreat in the safety and comfort of your own home.

REFINE your movements, deepen your T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) practice, and experience a greater flow of Chi and more JOY thru Movement.

RENEW your body, mind and spirit while connecting with other teachers.

This retreat is designed for TCC teachers and will serve to deepen your understanding and experience of this essentially spiritual form of moving meditation, offer a time of personal retreat and rejuvenation, provide a wonderful opportunity to connect with Sandy, Pam and other teachers in lieu of attending a summer conference and give you 25 hours of training credit for the Tai Chi for Veterans program.

Due to health and safety concerns from COVID-19, we will not be gathering at Mt. Calvary in Santa Barbara this year. Instead, this will be a virtual retreat online using the Zoom technology platform. It’s easy! You do not even need a Zoom account. You will receive an emailed link to click to join the morning, afternoon and evening sessions. You can use a computer or tablet with a camera and microphone. The bigger the screen, the easier it will be for you to see. Having a connection between your device and a large screen TV or monitor is ideal.

Register now…there is only space for 18 participants.

Cost is $175 per person. ($50 of this goes to Mt. Calvary, the Retreat Center where the retreat was originally scheduled, to help them with expenses during this challenging time.) Payment in full is due by June 15.  No refunds after June 15, 2020.

The retreat begins on Thursday with check-in at 3:30 pm (Pacific time), TCC practice at 4:00 and a welcome meeting at 5:00. We will have TCC workshops in the morning and afternoon to refine our movements, with a full TCC practice before dinner each day and an optional practice before breakfast. There will be free time after lunch and short evening meetings (except Thursday), plus an optional afternoon session on Teaching via Zoom. The retreat concludes at noon on Sunday.

Meals are on your own. It is recommended that you plan meals ahead and either have them prepared in advance or simple to put together quickly. We will surely miss Luis’ delicious homemade bread and chile rellenos!
