It's back! Our popular workshop on the great martial art of Bagua Zhang is once again being offered in both December and January. In addition to providing a self-contained course that is a simple and classic introduction to the last traditional martial art to come out of China, this workshop also fulfills the pre-requisite for joining the Academy's ongoing Bagua Zhang class.

In this 4 hour intensive, students will learn to 'walk the circle' using Bagua's unique stepping methods; the Eight Animal Postures, both stationery and moving; arm and leg patters of practice; Single Palm Changes for each of the Eight Animals.

The course fee also includes a profusely illustrated book which reviews the taught patterns, plus gives additional information on Bagua Zhang's nature and philosophy. Instructor Ted Mancuso, in addition to being the director of The Academy of Martial and Internal Arts, Santa Cruz's oldest raditional Kung Fu school, is well-known for his best-selling books and DVDs on Bagua Zhang. He is also the head of Plum Publications, a site devoted to the promotion and preservatio of the Traditional Chinese martial arts. (pre-registration required) This seminar will be offered on Sunday, Dec 15, and then again on Sunday, January 26.

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
