Tai Chi Silent Retreat

Moving in Silence

Let tai chi relax the body,
Let silence relax the mind.

-Tom Krapu, Ph.D.

The focus of this unique event is intensive, structured CMC Yang Style Short Form Tai Chi practice within an environment of silence. The T’ai Chi practice includes form for flow, standing meditation, holding postures and optional sensing hands and sword practice. The silence occurs in an isolated environment which provides a valuable sanctuary for quiet introspection and reconnection.

The combination of synchronized T’ai Chi practice with the absence of external communication helps participants find clarity, inner peace, and a stronger connection with themselves, making it a transformative experience fostering personal and artistic growth and renewal.
