Upcoming T'ai Chi Ch'uan or Qigong Workshops
A Note to Readers: The
Cloud Hands website has been online continuously since 2001.
In 2011, over 1,300,000 webpages (excluding graphics) were
served to readers
around the world from the Cloud Hands website.
Since 2005, I have also provided an associated
blog to point to changes and
additions at the Cloud Hands website:
Cloud Hands: Mind/Body Movement Arts.
Since Cloud Hands is a very well-established and stable website, it provides
readers with a good and secure starting point for their online research into
Taijiquan and Qigong. The Cloud Hands website is funded entirely by
Green Way Research, with
volunteer efforts by Michael P. Garofalo.
Unfortunately, as everyone knows, many other websites and webpages appear and then disappear from the Internet WWW scene. Authors do not pay to keep up their web hosting services, loose a "free hosting" option, or decide to remove webpages for various reasons. Some people go out of business and close their websites, and some authors die. Consequently, links to some good webpages become invalid and the files are no longer found on the Internet. You may find a some of these "dead links" to nonexistent webpages cited below; and, there is no way to avoid this troublesome situation. For this reason, when you do find a good and useful webpage on the WWW, be sure to save the webpage to a folder on your hard drive or server.
I welcome and encourage your suggestions for how to improve this webpage. Your comments, ideas, contributions, and constructive criticism are encouraged. Send your suggestions to my email box.

We also offer the Gold Flower of Maoshan the Red Phoenix of Maoshan and a host of other Maoshan, Wu Dang, Hawaiian, and other practices from the Kunlun system. This is not a martial system to be clear, although many arts will benefit from the Kunlun energy.
