Denver’s International Program features fitness, friends, food & fun!

Sunshine, personalities, and art sparkled in Denver, Colorado June 21-22 as 70 people gathered at an International Program with Tony Kwong and Sean Dennison. Attendees travelled from several states across the U.S. to receive instruction: Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Iowa, Montana, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, and Virginia. The packed weekend included:

  • Excellent instruction from Tony
  • Many karaoke don-yus featuring lovely harmonies
  • Enlightening small-group practice sessions
  • Fresh, healthy cuisine made on-site
  • Plenty of time to see old friends as well as make new ones
  • Wonderful meals prepared by dedicated volunteers (did we already mention the food?)
  • Chanting of the Ching Mei Lai Dau Foh (Pure and Refined Ceremony Honoring the Dippers) Taoist chant using a newly-installed video screen

During a break, Executive Director of TTCS USA, Sean Dennison, and President of TTCS USA, Pegoty Packman, announced the Society’s purchase of the the Fenway building, a new international centre and project in Florida. They displayed pictures and maps of the beautiful property and answered group questions about future plans. The group also celebrated Tony’s upcoming 70th birthday with a cake and more singing. After the program, members took Tony to view the world-renowned Chihuly glass sculpture exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens—a fitting, artistic end to a wonderful weekend of Taoist Tai Chi™ arts that buoyed spirits and strengthened bodies.
