Dance of the Elements: Tai Chi, Poetry and Meditation

Friday, 15 April 2022 to Friday, 22 April 2022 2022

This week of Tai Chi, writing and meditation will trace our intimate relation to the dance of the elements: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Space, and Consciousness – with an overall theme of impermanence.  Whatever arises from our practice we will use to play with the reality of our interconnectedness - write about it and share our stories.
