Symposium: Kr.500,- including lunch and beverages

Registration by VIPPS to 91160581 Pamela Hiley


The Norwegian Taiji Centre (NTC), warmly invites you to this significant symposium together with The Welsh Centre for International Affairs (WCIA). This is an inspirational collaboration following on from their highly successful conference 19th May, 2023 at the Welsh Temple of Peace and Health, Cardiff, Wales. 

We wish to further explore our partnership, using Taiji as an inspiration to fully understand our embodied conscious behaviour and deepen our ability to transform our actions in balance with nature, nurturing our health and mapping a path towards a culture of peace.

To help restore the roots of humanity we ask then: What is peace, what is wealth, what is health? How can we build bridges with our breath?

This is the 4th gathering NTC has had the honour to facilitate at The Norwegian Nobel Institute.

On this occasion NTC is honoured to partner again with WCIA to deepen our dialogue on looking for new perspectives and learnings about peace.

The symposium gathers an exceptional spectrum of engaged speakers to address central challenges of our time with an inclusive spirit. It will serve as a fertile platform for participants to share and engage with novel ideas in the roundtable sessions.  

Warm Welcome!
