VANCOUVER KI SOCIETY

The Vancouver Ki Society Turns 35!

Join us in celebrating 35 years of family, community and Mind & Body Coordination

August 18 - 22, 2017

Welcome!

For 35 years, the Vancouver Ki Society has been dedicated to creating something special.  Over the years, we have grown from a group of people who train in Universal Principles together, to a community, then to a family. 

Every person who walked through our doors has impacted us and helped form our family.  It is with this family that we want to celebrate our 35th anniversary. 

We have designed a great weekend of training and social events to celebrate our 35th and we would love to have you join us.  

Whether you’re active in class or not, there’s events for you, from great training opportunities for students of all levels, to an amazing banquet, our annual family BBQ and optional social excursions with the Ki Society members and senior instructors from the Northwest Ki Federation. 

We hope to see you there!

Roger Isaacs, Chief Instructor of the Vancouver Ki Society
