Hosted by Cold Mountain Internal Arts, the 2017 CTF Fall Symposium will feature the presentation and discussion of research papers on subjects related to Tai Chi.

Located in the Barley Works Boardroom at the Huether Hotel, (a Heritage Inn located at 59 King St N, Waterloo, ON N2J 2X2), the afternoon will provide opportunity for Tai Chi enthusiasts to learn, discuss and socialize... along with some pretty amazing craft beer (and food) made on the premises!

Please join us for an afternoon of education and fun!
Interested in continuing the conversation? Some have already planned on staying for dinner at the Huether. The more, the merrier! As a courtesy to the staff, we will be doing a headcount for this during the Symposium to allow staff time to set aside dinner seating. Please join us! (Dine on your own dime).
