The first substantial Centre for Taoist Tai Chi TM in Europe hosts, two and five day programs, regular weekday classes for beginning and continuing students most mornings and evenings, including a health recovery class, chanting practice, lunch time meals, social events and is filled with activity most weekends.

A former RAF Officers Mess on the southern outskirts of Colchester, the building was purchased in 1992 and adapted to provide a suitable practice hall and kitchen. It was clear from the start that we would need larger premises so in 2002 we undertook major building work including the extension of the practice hall.

The works closed the building for over two years but since its re-opening we have enjoyed more than double the practice space as well as a greatly extended and improved kitchen and additional residential facilities.

June 2012 saw the Grand Opening of our first High Shrine in Great Britain.

Visitors are most welcome. On weekdays, opening hours are normally 09:00 - 17:00 and 19:30 - 21:30, weekend opening hours are 10:00 - 12:00 Saturday and Sunday, although these may vary slightly to suit the Centre's function as a venue for regular classes and administration.
