Save The Date!!!

On September 8, 9, & 10, 2017 we will be holding a fabulous Tai Chi Festival, Qigong Retreat, and Integrative Health Symposium (aka "The Symposium" or "Tafeqirhesy") at Maris Stella Conference and Retreat Center at Harvey Cedars on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. Please make a note of it in your calendar. Calls for workshops and papers as well as more details will be forthcoming shortly. Hope to see you there!


If you are interested in coming under our insurance policy, then you can apply to become a Professional Member of HPL Institute. In addition to getting Liability Insurance Coverage, you will be able to list your classes, workshops, and events in our database, and eventually (when they are finally ready) use our CIRWEP tools to promote your services. Cost is $295 a year (but you don't pay until you've been accepted. You do have to sign an Ethics pledge). If you want to list your classes but don't need insurance, you can become a Practitioner Member instead ($180). [Don't choose this until we actually have our database up and running - hopefully by 2017.]


To apply for professional membership, fill out this form [click here for application] and return to us.

Once completed and sent to Stella@HPLConsortium.org or HPL 501c3 Institute, PO Box 564, Douglassville, PA 19518, you will receive a welcoming email and a link to pay. If you would like to renew your professional membership from last year, you can use this button:


The current Managing Director of Taijiquan Enthusiasts Organization (Luke Jih) has temporarily suspended membership fees for non-professional members of Taijiquan Enthusiasts Organization. If you'd like to donate, however, please do so here:


For years we've been debating about providing benefits for Tai chi Teachers such as third party verification of certification. For years we encourage people to contact the NQA for certification. However, we recently discovered that the NQA will not certify Tai Chi teachers, only Qigong Health Practitioners and Instructors. As a result, we are looking into certifying Tai chi teachers ourselves. If you are interested in serving on the committee to make that happen, please contact CJ at CJRhoads@TaijiquanEnthusiasts.org.
