Hi everybody! We’re excited to announce that our 2017 session of Free Tai Chi classes will be starting on June 4th! As always, we’re going to be located on the Boston Commons just across from the Loews theater. Just look for the group of folks gathering up and warming up for practice! […]
The Daoist Benevolent Assoication, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based on the vision of Daoist priest Zhou Xuan Yun to spread the teachings of Daosim and traditional Chinese culture. Daoist teachings have long since been the basis of Chinese Medicine, with a focus on the promotion of health and longevity by living in accordance to nature.
This organization is dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of its members and local community through free and low cost classes in Taiji and Qi Gong, seminars about traditional daoist philosophies, and integrative therapeutic services including acupuncture, tuina massage, and physical therapy.
Our teacher, Zhou Xuan Yun 周玄云 (pronounced Joh Sh-wen Yoon) was raised on the most sacred mountain in China, Wudang Mountain, where he trained and later worked as an instructor of Taiji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan), Kung Fu and weaponry. Xuan Yun is also an ordained Daoist priest, trained in ritual arts, chanting, divination, and Qi Gong. Dedicating his life to passing on the Wudang arts, Xuan Yun divides his time between the U.S. and China, offering classes and workshops on traditional Wudang martial arts, Qi Gong, and Daoist philosophy.
