The training courses I propose are an invitation to:

  • Get away from the day to day routine, the well-known and your daily landmarks
  • Get initiated to or go further in the practice of Qi jong, Tai ji quan, meditation, Gong fu or calligraphy
  • Get to live a unique experience with the China of today and the China of the everlasting teachings.

Behind words, forms and techniques the Chinese arts are an invitation to self discovery, exploration into the nature of our relationship to the world.
