Charles Robinson, creator of Kai Chi Do, will lead a Kai Chi Do session Sunday, October 23 in the Oak Pavillion from 2:45 - 4:00 pm. Kai Chi Do is like dancing while you’re meditating with a bunch of friends. Moving like a martial artist but on everybody’s side and cooperative. Putting some air between your thoughts (You really need to). Until the sun shines in your head. And your body hears it…Two Breaths, Five Elements, Seven Basic Movements…Easy Exercise for Connection to Source, Self, and Others.
Charles Robinson is a teacher, a guide, a life energy guru, and the creator of Kai Chi Do. The inspiration for Kai Chi Do came to him while he was leading a meditation group back in the early 1970′s.

Charles is the Clinical Director of Alternative Treatment International where he helps people recover their connection to Source, self and others. He helps people to move forward by meeting them exactly where they are. Charles has a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and a Master’s degree in Education from Seton Hall University.
Charles’ wife, Susan, is his one-person administrative team, so if you read our blog or sign up for any of our services, you’re sure to bump into her juggling details. Susan is also a great role model for doing Kai Chi Do at your own pace – as you’ll see whenever we get her out from behind the video camera.
They live with their daughter Shanti and 2 dogs Toby and Zoie in Tarpon Springs, Florida.
