Laura Stone

In 2012 Shambhalian Laura Stone celebrated 40 years of practicing and teaching T'ai Chi Ch'uan. Along with the basic principles of relaxation, grounding, effortless power and synchronizing body and mind, core themes for Laura are contact, space, and harmony. These within oneself and in interaction with others.
She is fascinated with the art of soft contact pushing/sensing hands and T’ai Chi boxing as metaphors for relationship. These interactive practices are exquisite training for embodying qualities such as mindfulness, fearlessness, inscrutability and joy in (inter) action.

Laura is an accomplished classical pianist. Improvising with Veronika Simonett, she joins her love of making music via the piano and voice with the sound world of today's music. Music from the heart.

Meditation, counseling and other body-mind disciplines are also part of the mix that inspires Laura and her interplay with others.

Laura lives in Deventer, The Netherlands, with her husband and Shambhala teacher Fred van Welsem.

“ I love the natural world, small and vast, and people.
Sharing the rich mix of T’ai Chi, music, meditation and life experience with others gives meaning, joy and satisfaction in my life, and hopefully theirs too. A way to contribute to creating an authentic and sane society this very moment.”
