This post is to let everyone know about an upcoming T’ai Chi seminar that will be presented by my friend and teacher Master Waysun Liao.  It will take place in Tucson, Arizona on Saturday, March 7th and Sunday, March 8th 2009.  It is being hosted by another friend of mine, Barry Brownstein, a long time Tai Chi practitioner who lives in Tucson.  Barry is also a licensed acupuncturist and T’ai Chi instructor there.

If you have practiced with Master Liao before you know that his teaching and seminars offer the chance to go much more deeply into your T’aiChi practice and expand your understanding considerably.  I am pleased to say I’ve already made arrangements to be in attendance along with a few other students.  Here’s the weekend schedule:

1)Tai Chi Lecture and Practice    “Qi, Forms and Flow” 10:00 am – 12 noon on Saturday, March 7th.  Cost for this session is $45.   Open to the public.

2)Tai Chi Practice   “Two Person Practice”  2:00 pm – 4:00 pm on Saturday, March 7th.  Cost for this session is $60.  Tai Chi experience required.

3)Tai Chi Practice    “Intensive Practice”  8:00 am – 10:00 am Sunday, March 8th.  Cost for this session is $85.  Tai Chi experience required.

There will also be a Tai Chi banquet on Saturday evening to welcome in the Chinese “Year of the Ox”.  Based on past years meals it’s not to be misssed!

For more information about the seminar, or questions about the specific Tai Chi experience suggested to attend, it would probably be best to contact Barry Brownstein directly.  His email address is and his phone number is 520-297-7955. Please put Tucson Tai Chi Seminar in the subject line of an email.

This has gotten to be an annual event thanks to Barry’s perseverance.  It has been my pleasure to attend, geez I forget now, but it’s at least four or five of the previous seminars.  I’ve come away with a lot from each of them.

If you’ve never had a chance to meet and practice with Master Liao personally, this would be an excellent venue in which to do so.  If you have been at one of his seminars before I’d invite you to post a comment about your experience.

Think right and happy practice!
