After a mystical experience on a Vipassana meditation retreat undermined his common-sense understanding of reality, Jonathan went on a quest to explore the nature of consciousness. He began with William James’s classic text, The Principles of Psychology. Reading this text, followed by 3 decades of reading other works of James, has been, he said, like falling down Lewis Carroll’s rabbit hole. He is the author of The Illusion of Will, Self, and Time: William James’s Reluctant Guide to Enlightenment (SUNY Press), a Chicago Seminary Co-op Notable Book Award Winner for 2016, and the Editor of the critically acclaimed anthology Sciousness (Eirini Press). His radical reconstructions of James have been published in numerous international journals and magazines. Oliver Sacks has praised his work as “full of interest and originality… the ghost of William James is surely happy to see it.” Eugene Taylor, author of William James on Consciousness Beyond the Margin and the recipient of the APA Lifetime Achievement Award, wrote that “Bricklin advances James on consciousness farther than anyone.” Jonathan is a former Program Director of the New York Open Center.  jonathanbricklin.org

taichi qigong taijiquan qigong taichi taichi world qigong taichi day

World Taichi Qigong Day was very successful! Check out our testimonials:

Big congratulations for the success of your first, real WTCQD at Eastover.  The program was well put together with an interesting and experienced assortment of presenters.  I appreciated the way the presenters were flexible to adapt their talk or demonstration to add something fresh to the program.  They went with the flow as, of course, they would.  The taiji demonstrations right after lunch were well timed to add something light, colorful, musical and well performed.  Most enjoyable.  I’m sure word will spread so that even more people will attend next year.

Wholehearted thanks to the whole community coming together for this very important event; continuing such work will change our economy with less doctor visits. Not only people will be happier, they will be more productive. Nature will benefit, because Qigong, Taichi, and TCM people care, love, and respect nature.

“Ying, thank you so much for hosting such an amazing weekend. I learned and experienced a lot. I look forward to coming back soon for a retreat!
Warm Regards,
Mark from CT”

Dear Ann, It was so wonderful to spent time at the Eastover Estate and met so many wonderful people over the weekend! I had a great two day sleep over there and even when I came back home Last night, I slept from 9 pm to 6:30 am this morning, never had such a good and peaceful sleep. I dreamed many little creatures fly away from my head. And I wake up with a much cleaner head. Doesn’t this mean “放下- letting go“?

Thank You for the marvelous Weekend – I wanted to thank you for your generosity and welcoming as well as for the wonderful Qigong weekend at Eastover.
The opportunity to connect with such great masters was unique and powerful.
I hope that you keep me in mind for any future presentations as I would love to be present in the dynamic flow of wellness services and education at Eastover
My special rapport with Jay Emmanuel is also something for which I am grateful and this weekend helped me to establish a continued relationship with him.

Your warm staff and personal deserves a special mention, they were all very helpful and professional

Thanks again!

Yours Truly
