TCC Teacher Symposium in Pennsylvania with Sandy McAlister
August 20 - August 23
T’AI CHI CHIH Teacher Symposium, facilitated by Guide & Teacher Trainer Sandy McAlister
Come Share, Learn, Renew and Acquire valuable insights and ideas to improve your teaching, held just prior to Sr. Antonia Cooper’s T’ai Chi Chih retreat in Aston, Pennsylvania. The Franciscan Spiritual Center is a contemplative place of simple beauty and joy and a perfect setting for T’ai Chi Chih.
This symposium is designed for teachers to explore and deepen their practice, examine and renew teaching techniques for optimum chi flow, and experience how other teachers teach by being their student.
Sandy will offer insights gleaned from her 30 plus years of teaching. She will guide us into topics for discussion: How do we, as Teachers, present grounding, how do we talk about the shaking or trembling of the hands, how do we talk about T’ai Chi Chih as a spiritual practice, how do we present the principles that guide the practice.
We all have a wealth of experience to share with each other such as how we prepare the room we use, how we format our classes, what has worked and what hasn’t. You are invited to bring questions, ideas, techniques, props and tips to share with the group.
The cost is $380 for instruction, private room with private bath and meals. The cost for commuters is $295. The Philadelphia Airport is approximately 20 minutes from the Spiritual Center.
