Special TaoZen Community Offering

Special Offering Page for Our TaoZen Friends

This Year’s Agenda: Tai Chi & Meditation
Simple Things can run Very Deep

Come and enjoy Wonderful People, Amazing Food, Breathtaking Views… In an Italian Villa with history and beauty.  Join us for Deep Meditation, Conscious Breathing and Flowing Qigong practices.

We will start our mornings with TaoYin and meditation on the lawn with an amazing 360 degree view of Mediterranean Sea and Tuscan Wine Country outside our private villa. Mornings are often surrounded by morning mist as the sun climbs in the sky.

We will learn and practice TaoZen Meditation, Breathing and Qigong through the day.  This year we will spend more time practicing and contemplating together rather than just learning the steps of a method.  We will be focusing on:

Meditation: Three Dantian and Seven Chakra

“Dantian” is from the Taoist tradition and “Chakra” is from the Indian tradition, and yet they are interconnected. Both are subtle body energy centers. And it is important to develop each center and balance them for our total well-being. We will explore the Three Dantian through meditation and simple Qigong movements. We will explore the Seven Chakra with Yin-Yang Mantras, visualization and simple movements.


Tai Chi (Moving Meditation): 

We have sent out a message to our community asking everyone which Tai Chi form they love best:

Tenshin Ranman Taichi

We will work with one of these two forms… whichever the most people love.  Don’t worry if you don’t know either form… or any Tai Chi!  Masahiro will teach the foundations of the form even as he helps us refine it.

We will also do Dream Practice and have a one-day Silence Practice.
