Taiji and Qigong at the Smokestack   1 comment

“Plantation Days” celebration in Lahaina (Last years poster) Click image to enlarge

I’m going to be demonstrating Taiji and Qigong at this celebration.  This is looking like it’s going to be a fun time for the whole family on two nights in Lahaina.  Food, music, and Taiji….. Plus lots more; something for everyone.

I do a lot with the Wo Hing Temple in Lahaina as part of the Taoist tradition. My friend Busaba Yip Douglas is always a pleasant soul to work with and this time she has me doing a Taiji and qigong demo as well as a late night meditation session at this exciting event.

The event is for two days, Friday and Saturday October 22nd and 23rd.
I will be there from 5:00 PM until 10:00 both nights.  I usually just keep doing Taiji and qigong for three or four hours just to add some ambiance to the evening. I hope to see you there….

  1. I was able to attend Friday and Saturday. I got to become a participant and follow Cory in some Long Form Taiji. Busaba and the whole Chinese community made me feel so welcome. It was a very enriching experience for me seeing the Taoist philosophy applied to every day life on Maui. Wish I could post the photos. Red lanterns, good luck fish, white arch, drums, lions, banners, food and the out pouring of love. A fish called W.
