Meditation and Tai Chi with the Small Forest Temple

The Small Forest Temple is offering classes in traditional Meditation, Tai Chi and Kung Fu. All classes are taught by priests of the Small Forest Shaolin temple with over 40 years of combined teaching experience.

Temple Meditation
Thursdays 5:00 – 6:00pm
in the Memorial Chapel Meditation Room
The essential practice of Chan (Zen), meditation.
In this class you will learn the fundamental practice of traditional Chan
(Zen) meditation. We will practice both sitting and walking meditation
that are meant for daily use, as well as special techniques that have more
specific applications. Here you will quiet your mind, reduce overall
stress, increase your ability to concentrate, and speed up the process of
getting to know who you really are. It is a completely non-religious practice of spiritual awakening.


Temple Tai Chi
Thursdays 6:30 – 7:30pm
In the Freeman Athletic Center, Multi Use Room #1 (next to wrestling room)

Tai Chi is meditation in motion. Shaolin arts emphasize the

internal, not just the external form and movements. In Tai Chi, we use physical movements to guide internal movement. You will learn to get in
touch with this internal energy, and to direct it. Some of the many
benefits include increased concentration, reduced stress, improved
health, clarity of perception, and the personal strength and confidence to
be yourself.

    It is a Weswell course (just not this semester due to weswell being on hiatus), so there is indeed a cost to it. The temple has very little income as it is, but if cost is a an issue, speaking with the priests about it could have them potentially reduce the fee for you (especially since it’s not done through weswell this semester).
