Elves Do Tai Chi and Qigong to stay young, healthy, and magical

I just saw the the second part of the Hobbit movie, and now can say without doubt: its Tai Chi and Qigong that the Elven folk practice to live forever, heal naturally, and of course: even kill Orcs if they need to!  See the movie, which has some of the most incredible martial-art like action scenes ever done...by Elves! It did over-do the action and fighting and under do the magic and beauty of the first part of the trilogy, however. We can only hope for a grand synthesis with the concluding movie next year, where of course the Light and Magic harmonizes with (remember, the oppositional yet complimentary functions of Yin and Yang) the Dark and Dismal.

Radio Interview with Lama Tantrapa August 2012

Live from the 'Lama Den' in Portland, OR.  We discuss my newly revised and  republished book of poems and color photos, Water Seeking Light, and the topic of the intersection of tai chi/qigong and poetry.  Questions such as:  What is "natural," and "How do tai chi and qigong help one align themselves with Nature, Flow, and Creativity," are addressed.  Pardon the poor sound quality, we were recording via Tantrapa's iPhone.

I am very pleased to announce that starting in early 2014 Tai Chi and Qigong for Everyone DVD will be appearing in Whole Foods Markets.  We are partnering with Floating Records of Sausalito, CA to carry the DVD along with other local music titles starting with the original Mill Valley store.  Starting in Marin County, CA, we expect to expand to the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area and eventually the rest of the 250 and growing Whole Foods stores nationwide.  This is a huge distribution opportunity to help promote the self-healing and awareness that Tai Chi and Qigong offer practitioners.  Please help spread the word, and  stay tuned for the exact release date.
