T’ai Chi Foundation Summer Training 2016

July 17, 2016 - July 30, 2016

Dear Friends and Fellow T’ai Chi Enthusiasts,

We are tremendously excited to invite you to attend the Tai Chi Foundation’s 2016 US Summer Training, our fifth at the Whidbey Institute.

Building on the work we have done over the past summers at Whidbey, and the winter trainings in the US and Europe, all levels of our curriculum, from beginning through the most advanced, enjoy a new level of depth, clarity, and playfulness.  As our understanding and embodiment mature, working together has never been more fun!

The first week, from July 17 through July 24, is for students and teachers who are studying Push Hands 4 and above.  The second week, from July 24 through July 30, is for all students and teachers, from beginners through our most advanced.

General information about the food, travel, weather, and local vacation attractions are shown to the side and below on this page. Registration information is also below.

Over the past four summers, the people, food, venue and the weather at Whidbey have been extraordinary, providing a most enjoyable and renewing summer retreat together.  Come and join us!

Please contact me at with any questions you may have.

With every good wish,

David Goodell

Training Coordinator
