Welcome to our website! Here we present to you the offerings of the Abundant Peace Aikido & Tai Chi School. We hope there is something here for you, as we provide a wide range of classes, courses, retreats and activities, all designed to give tools, techniques and methods to improve your quality of health, fitness...and life!
How do we do this?
Largely by drawing upon the 'ancient wisdoms' of the Internal Arts.
By 'ancient wisdoms', we mean 'tried and true'; in other words, techniques and strategies that have been developed and studied over many centuries and have stood the test of time.
By 'Internal Arts', we mean paths or arts that focus on and cultivate the inner qualities of mind, energy and spirit. These are attributes that can be developed and made stronger with time and practice. This is in contrast with purely 'external' attributes such as power and speed which, like the "oak tree", eventually give way to greater natural forces.
The Internal Arts teach us to tune into and access these greater natural forces, using them as our source of power, stamina and health.
By learning to develop the mind-body connection, you have the tools to take charge of your health and access innate, natural wisdom, leading to greater balance and harmony for your life as a whole.
The Internal Arts, or "soft technologies", offered at our school include Aikido, Tai Chi, Chi Gong (Qigong) and Meditation. Each art, though sharing the same Life-Enhancing goals, is unique enough to appeal to different personalities and interests. Enjoy exploring what we have to offer and always feel free to call us if you have any questions or would like to view a class.
