MARCH 3-7, 2024
led by Hubert Gagnon (Comme les nuages)
and Philippe Gagnon (Taichi nuances)

For all
Liuhebafa - 5 day workshop - CAMMAC

Introduction to Taichi
Intensives calendar

This workshop is designed for both new and experienced students.
After the success of the Taichi workshops held at CAMMAC in 2023, as well as the online seminar on the Five Animal Forms, we turn to the art of Liuhebafa, a master key in Master Moy’s teaching of the internal arts.

Liuhebafa is composed of 66 ‘manoeuvers’ which are often more elaborate and physically demanding than Taichi movements. For those who are new to Liuhebafa or have learnt it “a while back”, we will provide the basics so you can more easily practise with others.  Also, there will be plenty of foundation exercises to help you develop the skills to execute the movements correctly.

For the more experienced, the program includes specific flexibility and strengthening exercises, as well as methods for improving alignment and overall coordination, suited for developing the “eight harmonies” and acquiring the “eight methods.”  As many have discovered, the intensity of several days dedicated to this art creates the conditions for deep inner work, both physical and spiritual.

We  also invite you to participate in periods of sitting meditation every morning upon waking (靜坐 jìngzuò - sitting in quietude).

Of course, the beauty of the site also invites you to take a walk in nature, or relax by the lake between sessions.
