Join us on the 2018 Autumn in CHINA TOUR departing from Brisbane on September 16th. Deposits are due right now.

This is a good tour to broaden your understanding of Chinese culture, ancient history and the arts we are studying and using in our daily life. Enjoy magnificent scenery and learn more about the rich history of these areas.

Emei TrainingJoin us for early morning Tai Chi in the park, observe the locals at their morning exercise, and perhaps be invited to join in with them for a few moves. We will play Tai Chi wherever….whenever….because we need to after long periods of travelling, and because there are so many magical places that will make you ‘just want to do your own practice’.

Mt Emei – visit the home of the spiritual Lohan – training at the hillside Lohan temple surrounded by the misty mountains will give you goosebumps!

Qingcheng - one of the birthplaces of Taoism

Chengdu and other areas – Learn about stories from the Ancient Three Kingdoms 220–280AD while visiting historically significant sites.

Wudang – visit the birthplace of Tai Chi in the mountains and train with a local master.
