Or finish one and then do the other?

You will feel the rewards however you choose to participate.


What is a Tuning?


Four to five times per year, the TCF offers seasonal tunings. What is a tuning? Tuning is a practice where we align ourselves to the energy and quality of the season. The TCF tunings are also a group of people doing the same routine simultaneously, all in their own homes. The work of our tunings is qigong which means generating energy for our health and well-being. We can harmonize with others across the world as we practice on our own, separate but connected, united in developing qi for ourselves and the well-being of all.

All our tunings contain videos with instructions, a starting and ending date, and a Google email group for updates and sharing experiences. The tunings start and end, when possible, with an online instructional Zoom session. Sometimes we also offer one halfway through.

Who Can Attend: 

These tunings are open to everyone. No previous experience is required.
