International Instructor Training

SONY DSCFebruary Training at Heavenly Way

Every February the Golden Flower Tai Chi School hosts a ten-day International Instructor Training Retreat at Heavenly Way. The training is lead by Master San Gee Tam with the assistance of Senior Instructor Annukka Holland. The training is attended by Golden Flower Instructors from around the globe. It is also open to Instructor Trainees (taking Golden Flower’s Two Year Professional Course) and Advanced Students interested in becoming an Instructor (upon an invitation by Master San Gee Tam).

The event is an “intensive” training with a typical day starting at 7:00 am in the morning and lasting until 10:00 pm or later.

The Training Retreat focuses on:

  • Further development and refinement for Instructors’ understanding and abilities with respect to the Golden Flower Curriculum.
  • The latest updates and developments with respect to the Curriculum.
  • Personal feedback to the Instructor with respect to their personal Tai Chi practice, teaching and communications skills.

Perhaps most importantly, this Event allows instructors from many different geographic locations an opportunity to get together and Co-Create the future of the Golden Flower School. This is a powerful experience and a unique chance to be a part of a worldwide creation centered on health, well being and personal transformation.

The days are long but the participants are nourished by delicious, healthy food, a beautiful and energetic environment, and a supportive community. They come away refreshed and excited to share with their students all that they have learned.
