The Berkshires are once again a major headquarters for World Qigong Taichi Day, Saturday, April 27th, as dozens of internationally recognized teachers of Taichi, Qigong, Chinese Medicine and Eastern philosophy—including many native China Masters— return to Eastover to offer FREE demonstrations and workshops for both beginners and advanced students.
