We will discover the experiences of body awareness, movement, internal energy (chi), and meditative practice. Participants will be taught a simplified tai chi form called Tai Chi Chih. We'll also explore the Taoist, contemplative classic, the Tao Te Ching. We will practice and examine silent waiting Quaker worship.
