In this retreat participants were introduced to the practice and philosophy of Liu He Ba Fa or “Water Style”.  Liu He Ba Fa (Six Unities and Eight Principles) is an ancient Taoist internal martial art that is very similar to Tai Chi. It seeks to embody and explore the changing relationship between yin and yang by working with movements that have contrasting energies. The movements of Liu He Ba Fa are sometimes high, sometimes low, sometimes fast and hard, and sometimes slow and soft. Water Style is a moving meditation in which we use our mind and body to explore the metaphorical names of the movements and the natural patterns that they evoke.
