event in 2017. During those times before the camp, when it was held on
The University of Iowa’s campus, disciples slept in sleeping bags and such in
Levi’s basement…the last time the entire floor space was occupied. In
the early mornings some awaken to do yilus out on the street, while others
slept in, recovering from the previous day. We would consume mass
quantities of coffee before heading to the workshop location. After the
1st session of the day’s workshop, we would all to a restaurant for lunch
then meet back at the workshop location for the 2nd half of the day’s lesson
under Master Chen. Following that we, Master Chen and a couple of carloads of
his disciples, would to Levi’s house. We cooked and ate supper,
shared in clean up and worked together as a family would. Serious and not
so serious discussions occurred…laughter occurred with great frequency.
Master Chen would drift in and out of these interactions sharing his stories,
wisdom, and humor. Impromptu training sessions occurred in evenings, some
lead by Master Chen and some not. Our intentions are to create an
environment for optimal learning, fellowship amongst hardcore Taiji
practitioners and memorable experiences.
