Dissolving Blockages Inside Yourself and Others

with Master Bruce Frantzis

An immersive meditation retreat using Qigong, Neigong, Tai Chi, and Tai Chi Push Hands to bring profound change and growth in your life and entire being: a perfect event for friends, adult family members, co-workers, and couples to come closer together and remove blockages in themselves and each other that are preventing you from living your best life and reaching your full potential.

This event is a complete 3 week package. When the online option becomes available, it will only include the weekend teachings, Saturdays and Sundays, at a lower price.

Daoist meditation can take many forms, but a unique and central part of the Daoist Water Tradition is resolving physical and energetic blockages in the body through the process of dissolving. In this more advanced meditation practice, you not only work with the stuck energies inside your body to eventually release them but also do the same in others. We all have subtle energies, so learning to both identify and then interact with them lets you understand them, your body, and your mind at a deeper level. Energetic blockages can affect you mentally, physically, emotionally, and beyond, and releasing them is a necessary path to freedom and comfort in oneself and the universe.

In this retreat, Bruce will teach how to bring up and dissolve tension and blockages inside the deepest part of your being. Each week will go further into the body and mind, allowing increasingly greater release. For In-Person participants, special emphasis will be placed on using Push Hands to identify and eliminate tension and contraction. This event will be the first time that Bruce is teaching a Tai Chi meditation practice in the context of interacting with another person. As many of you seasoned practitioners know, Bruce has often stated the different methods Daoists used in practicing meditation: sitting, standing, lying down, moving, and interacting with another person. In this retreat, you will learn the final and most complex piece.

Full course details and weekly structure here: Daoist Meditation in Tai Chi, Qigong, and Push Hands -

Lessons will be communicated in the traditional way, by teaching what is determined to be of greatest value to the students in the room. Course content is not conveyed in a rigid, checklist fashion, but rather flows spontaneously with what is emerging in the teaching and from those receiving it. What is listed above is a guideline and may change depending on those in the room. Bruce tailors his teachings to the students who attend in-person, so in-person attendance is always recommended.  Since the focus of the practices taught during this 3 week course will involve interacting with another person to help each other find and dissolve blockages, we’ve designed the course to follow a weekend and weekday structure. As is often stated, the best way to fundamentally grasp the process of any internal art is to practice with many different partners of all types, shapes, and sizes, so you feel and understand the differences between one person and another and how your energy changes in relation to different people. All of us are truly unique and individual, and one of the best ways to actualize and embody this understanding is by engaging in internal art practices with others.
