Greetings and an update from Art Baner... 

drawing the perfect circle... 

Well, after much adventure and the blessing of new perspectives, my wife Jo and I have returned to the great North West. Arizona remains a place of incredible beauty, friendly people and, yes... loads of SUN, but it turns out, our heart is here. It's been an eye-opening journey and it feels great to be back and settling into a new life among familiar places and wonderful friends and family. I've written a bit more of an update on my blog HEREMeanwhile, with an eye toward future momentum and contribution to the Tai Chi community, I am putting together plans for a full curriculum Tai Chi training series. Stay tuned for details... 

integrative bodywork has a new office!

I'm happy to announce I've established a new office at 1111 W. Holly Street, Suite F. The office overlooks Bellingham Bay and the San Juan Islands and is just minutes from where I used to be on King Street. I am offering a number of specials for old and new clients and look forward to reconnecting with good friends and meeting many new ones as well. Massage and bodywork specials can be found HERE at my new IB website!

5-Section tai chi series starts soon!

The 5-section solo Tai Chi form is an abbreviated version of the traditional long form and is an excellent way to begin your study or to deepen your development of core principles. I still have a couple spaces open for this series that begins Wednesday at the Bellingham Majestic. Full Details are HERE.
Additional classes for this spring are in the planning stage and will be announced soon... 

from the desk of chuang tzu... 

Finally, here is a quote from a poem attributed to Taoist master Chuang Tzu. The piece is called Drawing the Perfect Circle and can be found HERE in its entirety. I find this piece particularly compelling...

"... when the shoe fits,
The foot is forgotten.
When the belt fits,
The belly is forgotten.
And when the heart is right,
for and against are forgotten..."
