Turn to Gaze at the Moon is a retreat for expanding our horizons through integrating the language of the body and the language of the heart. Together we will gather the intention to open to the body's wisdom and find balance between mind and feeling. Taiji, writing & poetry have much in common: form, structure, sensitivity and a striving towards wholeness. Each move in taiji is a metaphor. The structured forms provide an inspiring backdrop for the weaving of rhythmic patterns with words.
