Lately, we’ve been refining the process to make… Read More

Now That’s a Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you have been enjoying the holidays and that they have been filled with Love and Light. We had a full house for Christmas for the the first time in a few years, and we had a blast. My granddaughter, Kiara, is seven now and she wanted the NYC tour. We didn’t do it all, but she got an adult dose of the Big Apple. The weather was crazy warm (mid-70s one day) and that brought some unexpected guests–mosquitos! I’m serious. Mosquitos at Christmas! Lots of them. (One persons suggested that they were imported with the… Read More

Song Kua Seminar at Peaceful Wolf T’ai Chi

A week ago I had the wonderful opportunity to teach a seminar at Peaceful Wolf Tai Chi  in East Haddam, CT, hosted by my good friend, Sifu David Shaver. David is an 81 year old testimonial to the power of the internal martial arts to keep you youthful and active. He has been an actor and a rodeo bull rider, among other professions, and now focuses on teaching taijiquan and other martial arts in his beautiful studio (built by David and his students and modeled after the Zhang San Feng Hall at the T’ai Chi Farm). As I mentioned in… Read More

Sunday Song Kua Seminar at Peaceful Wolf T’ai Chi

There is still time to register for my seminar this Sunday at Peaceful Wolf T’ai Chi in East Haddam, CT, hosted by my good friend, Sifu David Shaver. The main theme is Song Kwa: Awakening from the Trance, and I’m really excited about this stuff. It’s the biggest thing I’ve come up with since Energetic Coherence. Come prepared for some big surprises. Here’s what David wrote about it: Subject: Rick Barrett Workshop Dear Friends, It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I announce this year’s workshop with Rick Barrett: Song Kwa: Awakening from the Trance. Once again Rick brings us another break… Read More

21st Annual Tai Chi Alchemy. Part 2

What an incredible weekend! We soared so high, it has taken me a couple of weeks to come down enough to write about it. So much of the really important stuff that happens at TCA is too insubstantial to put into words. Things like that blaze of light when a total stranger gives you a hug that melts you to the core of your being…or when you realize that qi is not just something that you read in a book, but is something you can feel and use…or when you find in yourself that person that you always hoped you… Read More
