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

Amazing, amazing, amazing. That's all I can say about our Symposium for Integrative Health, Tai Chi & Qigong!
Join us next year. We don't have exact dates yet, but it will be either in August or September of 2020.

In 2019 the Symposium was 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.)

What Is the Symposium?

Three days of presentations, martial arts and qigong workshops, meditative, spiritual and fun activities.
