The Society for Nanlaoshu is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving this ancient Chinese longevity practice. Through meditation and physical movement we pursue health and well-being. This dual cultivation allows us to return to a natural state of balance and harmony.


Freddie Bryant &
Ikhlaq Hussain

Sunday, May 12,
5–7 pm

The final event in our Taiji/Music series where we explore how taiji and meditation connect with creativity and awareness.

American jazz and classical Indian music are both founded on improvisation and deep theoretical and spiritual traditions. Freddie and Ikhlaq will explore where the two genres intersect and endeavor to create a new fusion, rejoicing in the similarities and differences.
