T'ai-Ji Programme 2019
Embracing Tiger, Returning to Mountain
“When all striving ceases, the mind’s essential peace will be revealed”
The practice of T'ai-Ji is an act of loving-kindness towards oneself and to others. Through it we connect with an inner space of peace, harmony and ease, both physically and emotionally.
At The Orchard T’ai-Ji is presented in a non-intrusive manner, allowing for space and lightness. By not forcing ourselves into a preferred direction, we yield to the moment, stay grounded and approach any activity with ease, clarity and strength, making T’ai-Ji the healing force it is meant to be.
Through the forms of The Five Moving Forces and The Four Circles, we share our learning with joyful mindfulness, embracing with loving kindness whatever comes our way. Once we let-go of the cherishing of our judgements and surrender to the moment, T’ai-Ji will spontaneously express itself.
“In the non-doing the mind’s essential peace is revealed”
All T’ai-Ji retreats can be joined with or without any previous experience. Groups are on purpose of mixed levels of experience to enhance our learning through sharing with each other. Each retreat focuses on the practice of mindfulness through T’ai-Ji movement, relaxation and breathing exercises, sitting and walking meditation, emphasising the integration of this practice in daily life.
We are looking forward to sharing our T'ai-Ji journey with you.
