Redding Tai Chi has partnered with the Shasta County Arts Council (SCAC) to build a Tai Chi exercise court in Redding. This partnership will bring to our community a project that blends art and nature and will promote meditative exercise for seniors and others of all ages. This project will be beneficial not only to members of our community but it will also be a unique draw for those visiting Redding and the North State. With that in mind, we are committed to building a Tai Chi practice area which we have named the “Redding Tai Chi Meditation Garden” - a place where anyone can practice Tai Chi or low-impact meditative exercises, or just sit and enjoy a peaceful setting.
All the elements are in place for this project to be built. Turtle Bay Exploration Park, a non-profit museum and educational institution, has generously donated land next to the Sundial Bridge to build the project. Our architects have completed the design and we have approval from the City of Redding along with a plan for future maintenance. Our contractor (Donald F. Gallino, Inc) will be soliciting bids for the project in the near future. By donating to the Shasta County Arts Council (our non-profit 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor) you will help us qualify for the "A Community Thrives" grant. Winning a grant will provide the major funding needed to begin construction the Tai Chi Meditation Garden. Please be a part of this project and help us reach our goal by donating today!
All donations are tax-deductible.
Note: Our video is from last year's "A Community Thrives" grant competition and asks for a "vote" at the very end. We were not able to edit the video in time for this year's competition so please disregard the "vote" part. This year, instead of voting, we need to raise money to qualify for the grants and need your donations instead of a vote.
