2020 MCT Winter/Chinese New Year Dinner @ TBA
Jan 25 @ 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm

All MCT students are invited to our 8th annual Winter Party– a potluck supper closing out the long month of January and celebrating the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year, Year of the Rat) Our first class in the South Freeport barn-studio was in the fall, 2002. Since then our school has grown in size and strength, with over 60 active members. While the expansion in class offerings is exciting, our growing community is by far the most amazing development over the past decade- wonderful people coming together, forming lasting friendships while exploring the internal arts.

Last year we held our seventh school-wide dinner. It was so much fun we just had to do it again! Location to be arranged shortly. Come celebrate the richness and diversity to which each of you contributes while also enjoying yummy food that is now emblematic of our school events (ask anyone who has attend the Vinalhaven Retreat…). Should be fun! Dress is… what else?… relaxed. Spouses/partners/friends? Bring them along if they’re up for it!

World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day 2020 @ Bowdoin College

21st Anniversary!

April 22, from 10:00 to 11:30 on the coast of Maine. Anyone interested is invited to attend and watch or participate. Watching is fine! No experience necessary.

The WTCQD organization (Bill Douglas) sponsors this grass-roots event each year, held on the last Saturday of April, at 10:00 in the morning- practitioners around the world gather in their communities for a global celebration of T’ai Chi & Qigong. The result is a wave that passes from time zone to time zone at 10:00am, documented on the WTCQD website. 80 nations participating! We have been observing this special celebration locally at Bowdoin College for 17 years, hosting the largest event in the state. Our local event is hosted by  Bowdoin College Counseling Service, Maine Coast Taijiquan, and Maine Center for Taijiquan and Qigong Studies. Find out more at And check out our web-page dedicated to the event, including the video of the 2014 gathering.
