We set off into the gardens from the ticket office at 10.15am and practise for about 45 minutes. Anyone who practises shibashi taichi may attend. Sessions are free but Hestercombe entrance charge applies. To check if practice is on a particular day contact Amelia 07986 084176.


Introductory Courses for Beginners

The Taunton weekly classes are not suitable for beginners so special introductory classes or a workshop can be arranged when enough people are interested. As part of their initial training, beginners are advised to go through the audio programme 'Chi Gung: Principles & Practice'. To express your interest in joining classes please contact us.

Summer Chi Gathering

Five-day Residential Retreat
Labbnäs, Kimito, Finland
Wednesday 12 August to Sunday 16 August 2020
Postponed until August 2021 (exact dates to be confirmed)

A return to the lovely location for our 'chi gathering' - again to be held at Labbnäs by a lake in south west Finland. This is the occasion when Clive reviews the work he's been doing over recent months in England and develops and refines it for an international audience. The whole retreat is an exercise in conscious living - in absorbing the content of Clive's talks while enjoying the chi gung, meditations, walks, saunas and swimming.
