Vinalhaven Retreat 2018- September 7-9 @ Vinalhaven, Maine
Sep 7 @ 4:00 pm – Sep 9 @ 1:00 pm

This is the 12th annual MCT retreat on Vinalhaven, a beautiful island located 1 hour by ferry from Rockland. The weekend training is free to members (food and lodging costs are shared), and includes group practice and plenty of time for schmoozing, walks, quarry-swimming and breathtaking scenery. The absence of formality heightens the tranquility. The weekend removes any doubt that there is a strong relationship between universal/earth qi and our sense of wellbeing. Come experience inspiration and quiet in perfect balance.

Italy Retreat 2018 @ Tenuta di Spannocchia
Oct 11 – Oct 18 all-day

This is our second MCT retreat near Siena, Italy, building on a spectacularly successful retreat in 2016. We will be practicing Taiji and Qigong together for a week while basking in the breathtaking beauty of the Italian countryside. Tenuta di Spannochia is a gorgeous, expansive farm in the countryside of Sienna, dedicated to the traditions of sustainable agriculture. So much to see and do! And, as with our other retreats, there will be plenty of exploring, playing, relaxing, shmoozing, laughter, and an abundance of amazing food to go along with the daily, low-key Taiji/Qigong practice. To be there will be Qigong. There will be a limited number of reservations available.

Chen Style Taijiquan with Master Wang Hai Jun @ MacDuffie School
Nov 2 @ 9:30 am – Nov 4 @ 4:30 pm

This is an excellent chance to study with one of the top Chen Style instructors in the world. Starting in the Chen Village as a young boy, under the watchful eye of Chen Zhengli, he now lives and teaches in Manchester, UK, but makes time to come to New England twice each year. Master Wang’s amazing accomplishments in competition tell the story of his exceptional training and skill (see his website). His teaching style is generous, humble and tireless. For beginners and experienced players, this is Chen Style at its best. Check out the teacher- www.wanghaijun.com. We always have a group of MCT students attending this event, with possible shared housing for those who act early! Friday- Xin Jia Yilu/New Frame, First Form; Saturday & Sunday- Lao Jia Yilu/Old Frame, First Form.
