Tai Chi Alchemy in Sedona- September 16-18!

Sedona Drone Footage from BumbleMedia on Vimeo. It’s hard to believe, but our 22nd Tai Chi Alchemy in Sedona is just around the corner! September 16-18. Yes, there is still time to register, but please let me know soon. They need to prepare for us, so we want to give them time. I have some exciting new stuff to share this year, guaranteed to deepen your practice—whatever it might be. It’s a quick, dependable way to plug into the Big Qi, and it has taken my own martial arts, meditation, and healing to new levels. It’s something your can do… 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

Luoxuanzhang: “Spiral Mystery Palm”

Luoxuanzhang is the martial arts equivalent of eating braised short ribs: you can’t believe all that flavor is packed into such a small package. It is astounding how much energy is unleashed in a few movements. When Master Yang Fukui first showed it to me I was dazzled. What was happening? The movements were exquisite and dynamic and…strange.

And what I have found so… 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

21st Annual Tai Chi Alchemy in Sedona. Part 1

The 21st Tai Chi Alchemy was held at Mago Garden in Sedona, Arizona September 18-20 and this one was epic, even by TCA standards. The theme this year was, “It all begins with Meeting,” and that set the tone for the most transformative TCA in memory. I went into last year’s gathering with some serious questions about where it was all going. Sure it was fun getting together with these amazing people once a year for twenty years to exchange love, hugs, and explorations in martial arts, energy medicine, energy cultivation, and consciousness research, but I wondered if it had… Read More
