Practitioners of Taoist Tai Chi® arts in San Diego, California held their first Taoist Tai Chi® intensive. On Feb 4th over 20 participants from north and south California, Scottsdale, Florida, Mexico and Canada attended on a bright and beautiful southern California day. Allen Pearce, USA Director, lead the intensive. After the morning session of working together on the foundations and the first 17 moves, the group celebrated its first Chinese New Year banquet. Everyone enjoyed the day and the wonderful food.
We talked about the culture of the Society and of cultivating stillness.

What a wonderfully intensive experience with Allen Pearce.His mastery of movement and ability to express its meaningthrough imagery astounded me. I felt intimidated for a momentas we began, but soon found myself floating in a current ofmeaningful moves. Then I was given a vocabulary to workwith that allowed me to peek into a universe, into an art ofhealing that took my breath away. I was humbled that Allenrelated to me personally. I am humbled to be partof Taoist Tai Chi.
