Welcome to the Symposium for Integrative Health, Tai Chi & Qigong Festival and Retreat Website. Here you will find all things Symposium.

Last year's Symposium (2017) was our inaugural event, and it was a phenomenal weekend. This year's Symposium (Sept 7-9, 2018) should be even better! Download the flyer here.

Sorry, but online registration is closed - but don't let that stop you! Just come on down anytime during the weekend and register as a walk in. Fill out the registration form to save time here.

The Symposium is held at Maris Stella Conference and Retreat Center, which is located at 7201 Long Beach Boulevard, Harvey Cedars, NJ 08008.

Please be advised that there are several 7201 Long Beach Boulevards on Long Beach Island with the same zip code, so many GPS’s will take you to the wrong one. When you get onto the Island, turn left onto Long Beach Boulevard and travel 4.7 miles to the conference center. (It doesn't matter which left you take initially - they all eventually merge into Long Beach Blvd, which is the only road that goes from end to end on the island.) (Also be aware that on Long Branch there is a conference center called Stella Maris. Not the same one – don’t get confused.)

Before you leave, jot down David's phone number: 646-415-1692. He can give you specific directions and/or help you get from where you are to here.
