Master William Ting's 33rd Semi-Annual
Featuring instruction in
November 2 - 4, 2012
Master William Ting invites you to join him back at beautiful Split Rock Lodge in the Pennsylvania Poconos this November 2 to 4, 2012 for the 33rd Semi Annual Weekend Tai Chi Seminar. We will be offering the tranquility of lakeside rooms (for those guests who sign up early) and peaceful accommodation in the heart of the Pocono mountains.
Ting Kuo-Piao, or William Ting has a reputation as a Teachers' Teacher, not only because of his extensive in-depth knowledge of Tai Chi, but more for his ability to effectively communicate esoteric underlying theory and interpret the classic texts in a manner students from all levels and styles can relate to in modern society. Originally from Shanghai, China, Master Ting began his studies in the martial arts at the age of 14 and earned the honor of being chosen a closed door student of the late Grandmaster Lu Ji -Tang. With that, Master Ting brings over 40 years of experience to this seminar. Master Ting has dedicated his life to preserving the pure art of Tai Chi Chuan by sharing his accumulated knowledge and insight with students all over the world.
The focus of Master Ting's seminars is to unite the student with the heart of Tai Chi by stressing the fundamental principles essential to its practice. Correct posture, balance, relaxation, coordination of movement, calmness, and awareness are consistently reinforced to encourage each student to achieve a deeper understanding of the internal flow of energy with unity of mind, body, and spirit. No matter what style a student has practiced, the basic principles underlie each system and form a cohesive foundation for all practitioners.
This workshop provides a unique opportunity for those students who want to immerse themselves completely in a weekend of discovery, practice, application and demonstration. Master Ting organizes each day into sessions that feature various aspects of Tai Chi and QiGong. He then correlates the content of these sessions into practical exercises to accent the intricate relationship between Tai Chi study and basic principles. Personalized instruction, explanation of theory, detailed demonstration, plus time for practice are intended to increase the knowledge of each student and allow them to integrate these essential skills into their own style and practice. Questions are encouraged throughout the weekend, with individual attention given to each response, followed by practical demonstration and instruction.
Master Ting supplements the physical training with lectures Friday and Saturday evening designed to reinforce the lessons learned during the weekend. Sessions in Meditation will be interspersed with physical training and are designed to help the student relax and assimilate their exercises throughout the weekend. The surrounding beauty of the Pocono mountains provide an excellent environment for individual practice as well as lackadaisical meanderings.
Classically trained in China, Master Ting possesses an excellent command of the English Language that allows him to explain complex theory and philosophy which he reinforces using practical example and demonstration. Come share in the wisdom of his master¹s masters and experience for yourself the Taoist principles of awareness, fullness within emptiness, stillness within flowing, yielding within expanding.
