Point d’Emergence has been part of the international mobilization on The World TaiChi Day (then World TaiChi and QiGong Day) since 1999 Every year, two events took place, one in Paris (Nation) and one in the Southern Paris suburb (Longpont – 91), each one with around 15 or 25 participants. A local paper regularly covered the event.

Point D’Emergence in Paris and suburb (FRANCE)

Patrick Ongaro’s experience of TaiChi has built up through different teachings for over 20 years. In 1989, he founded his own school Point d’Emergence, and has been developing an original and evolving approach since then: Le Soi en Mouvement – the Self in Movement – is the awakening of our inner Joy through a fluidity of movement that springs from a vivid awareness of our sensations, a presence to the energies connecting us to the Universe, the Earth and the group, and a deep consciousness of our Spiritual Being.

Point d’Emergence offers ten weekly courses in Paris and suburb, plus numerous workshops in France and abroad (Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt).
