Final Payment

If you elected to submit a downpayment, any balance is due by July 1, 2016. Here again is a total cost calculator—subtract your downpayment, if any, from the total cost:

Total Cost Calculator:

To use this calculator:

  • Tuition: Select "870" for 48 form camp tuition;AND
  • Meals & Lodging: Select "370" if you are staying in a dorm room on campus, or "185" if you are commuting; AND
  • Early Registration Discount: "50" for early registration if downpayment was remitted prior to April 1, 2016; otherwise select "0"; AND
  • EBQ/T Certification Discount: Select "100" if your EBQ/T instructor certification is current; otherwise select "0"; OR
  • Multiple Camp Discount: Select "50" if you have attended a 5-day from 2013-2016, or select "200" if you are attending the 2016 EBQ/T camp immediately before 48-camp; otherwise select "0".
  • Either the EBQ/T Certification or the multiple camp discount must be set to "0".
  • Click on the "Total" button to calculate total amount due

Note: If you are also attending the 2016 EBQ/EBT camp, calculate the cost of that separately on the EBQ/EBT camp page. If a companion will be travelling with you that will not be attending the training, they will have to pay lodging (if staying in a campus dorm room) and meals (if dining with the group) separately.

Training Schedule

Here is the training schedule for the week. Please print a copy and bring with you. A copy will be posted at the dining hall.

The week will be full of taiji/qigong training, but as always Yang Laoshi emphases the importance of nurturing and a "taiji nap" is planned for each day.

What to Bring

Please bring a yoga mat, or blanket for lying-down qigong.

Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothes with good exercise shoes. Bring layers of clothing and extra socks, as it may be cool/damp outside in the mornings. As there is a short walk between lodging, dining, and training sites, an umbrella is a good thing to bring also.

A checklist of items is available here.

Recommended Instructional Materials

Yang Laoshi's book Taijiquan, The Art of Nurturing, The Science of Power, the 4 hr. DVD Dr. Yang Yang's Evidence Based Taiji and Qigong Program, and the music CD Elixir, Music for Moving and Still Meditation are highly recommended for all persons wishing to become certified instructors. The materials may be purchased on-line through the Center for Taiji Studies web site or at camp. Please email me with any questions: scott'at symbol'centerfortaiji.com.
