Healthy Relationships, Positives Connections is the theme for our January 2021 Living With the Principles retreat. Sessions will focus on discovering, adapting, and applying Tai Chi principles to created/sustain healthy relationships and positive connections with ourselves, with other humans, and with the natural world.

In light of health, economic, and social challenges everyone is facing, we concluded that it makes more sense to make the January 2021 retreat be a virtual rather than live event. Knowing that one of the main benefits of participating in a LWP retreat is the sharing of knowledge and community, it is our desire to maintain this in a virtual environment.

Thus, in preparation/practice of building community, we will be hosting two (2) one hour “Seasonal Qi” virtual sessions via Zoom. During these sessions LWP team members will lead you in different Tai Chi/Qigong routines focusing on the season’s element. These routines will be designed to build a healthy relationship with ourself, with others, and with our environment.

Both are free sessions, but registration is required (see side bar). Registration for Summer Seasonal Qi, July 11th, is now open.

We would appreciate, in exchange, that you provide us with any feedback (e.g. likes, dislikes, requests to repeat, requests to dig deeper, etc.). We also would appreciate your assistance in planing our January 2021 retreat. What would you like to see included in the program? Please send your suggestions to
