This is an Intensive that is both workshop and seminar. The programme is varied and full, set in the enchanted idyll of Transylvania.

You shall be in full immersion. Lots of action, lots of discussion & laughter, full of silence.
It is a 6.1/2-day all-day affair for enjoying the gifts of Yuan-Chi; spontaneous flow of the Chi that lightens your being, which brings you home to yourSelf. With innumerable health benefits.
Follow Sifu and experience auto-motion. One may even feel this blessing as a Cool Breeze that soothes & nourishes.

We begin at dawn with the “Dance” of Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan. Then take our ease over tea&coffee.
And jump back in with a lesson on Form. Which is followed by a hearty breakfast with talking (heated discussions?) and laughter. A round-table of questions & answers.
Then back into the fray of learning & practice. Which earns a leisurely early lunch and siesta.

Wake up to afternoon tea and a forum on Tao, Dance and Tai-Chi. Apart from absorbing basic Tai Chi Chuan in the Tao of Yuan-Chi, we workshop by enjoying the gracious effect of the great Chi; collective energy circulation, effortless movement and energy exchange.
{Yuan-Chi Push Hands revolves around the occurrence of this power of love, which cleanses and nourishes.}

An early dinner makes time for extended discussions and Q&A. We might explore the transformation of dance and movement into Yuan-Chi Tai-Chi?
The most enthusiastic might even choose to ‘dance in the moonlight’.
Flexibility and suppleness is inherent in the daily timetable of the Spontaneous Way.

Tears and fond farewells at 10AM on our last morning after wake-uP! coffee, the “Last Dance”, and a slow breakfast with final Q&A as we officially close this year’s European Retreat.

Yuan-Chi   Who or what is it?
TAO?         The Way actualized?
Love and self-defence?      Is Shen Love?

“Neither Assist Nor Resist”

Seasoned practitioners of the ‘Grand Ultimate Fist’ are very welcome to join us, to share in Joy that is beyond mere happiness. If you are ready, this Intensive can be a masterclass for you, for the price of a Beginners’ ‘boot camp’. Go to the next level to practise sublime Tai-Chi. “Jing bien chi, chi hua shen”: beyond cultivation of chi, you shall experience spontaneous transformation of chi into Shen.

What is it like to learn from Sifu Ric Lum?
I like that it’s not rote delivery of the teacher at the front for everyone to imitate. We receive different practice tasks adapted to where each student is at. Multiple lessons are in progress with senior students tasked with teaching newer students. A layering curriculum has been developed with careful consideration behind the sequence of how ideas get introduced but at the same time he’s responsive to stimulus on the day crafting a spontaneous lesson based on an observation within the group. The mode of learning ranges from watch, follow, demonstrate; to” here’s a task – go and figure it out on your own”; to observe others and note differences; to group sharing about experiences; receiving energy flow that moves you or the sharing of pertinent stories. This intimate delivery of teaching is a rare channel to ancient wisdom from assorted Masters that he’s studied with, along with Sifu’s unique insights from his own ongoing spiritual evolution. His intention is fostering your own growth; how that is brought about will be different for each individual. Authentically the real deal, that you won’t find on other street corners; I wouldn’t wake up early every Saturday morning for any ol’ class but this one is an embodied dance in presence that is not to be missed!

Shona, 2024

Master Lum founded Yuan-Chi Tai-Chi to share the Tao, the Way, through movement. Lum, Sifu has been enamoured of the inner world from an early age. He pursued internal martial arts until his own health crisis (general chi injury from chi goong) brought him to seeking beyond the arcane, to spirituality. Yuan-Chi Tai-Chi was key in restoring his health, his chi, his Life-Force. He then decided to teach because Yuan-Chi Tai-Chi is uniquely imbued with this All-Pervading Energy that is beyond chi.
Lum Sifu has been teaching Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan since 1999 and has a growing body of students and instructors both in Australia and overseas. He is always on the lookout for students who are serious about enjoying themselves and their Art (but not necessarily about themselves!).

Unique Experience for Europeans

If you live in Europe, don’t miss this unique opportunity! The last time Master Lum taught in Europe was in 2015, in Viterbo, Italy.

Yuan-Chi Tai Chi Chuan is the Dance of the Way that awakens the flow of the All-Pervading Energy spontaneously. This hidden technique is based on a natural approach that does not require any wilful control or interruption to the autonomic functions of the body. In fact, the key is transparently simple:


It is easier than you think, but even easier if you don’t think!

It’ll be an unforgettable experience…
