Tai Chi Weekend with Master Ting at Split Rock Lodge
Master William Ting (Ting Kuo Piao), the founder of Silver Tiger Tai Chi, in Burlington, will present a weekend of tai chi, October 31 to November 2, at Split Rock Lodge, in the Pocono Mountains. The weekend is open to all levels and includes practical demonstration and instruction balanced with lectures and Q&A sessions.
Known for his ability to communicate esoteric Eastern theory in a manner that Western students can relate to, Ting stresses principles and foundational material common to all styles and forms.
Tai chi is a form of martial arts that relies on a person’s internal ability to circulate vital energy, or qi. The philosophy proposes that the ability to create and circulate qi keeps an organism balanced, healthy and energetic, while qi that is lacking or stagnant causes disease, illness and death. The study of tai chi encourages the development and circulation of this element and it must begin with an understanding of the basic principles underlying the seemingly effortless movements.
Cost: $630 per person; double-room occupancy. Prices vary. Location: 100 Moseywood Rd., Lake Harmony, PA. For registration or more information, visit SilverTigerTaiChi.com.
