This summer I traveled with our Teacher for three weeks through places where Tai Chi was born, places that are sacred to Daoists, to take in the culture and to train.

Daoist Gate organized the pilgrimage, and their founder Zhou Xuan Yun led. With him we studied Twenty-Eight form. 

We practiced outdoors at sunrise, after breakfast, and in the evening. 

A couple of mornings it was ba duan jin Qigong, led by Huang Sifu, the head priest of Yu Mu Shan temple,  and one evening we did Kung Fu kicks. Beware my deadly Tornado Kick! 

Here is my video slideshow of the experience ..
