Master Robert Larsen is a psychotherapist in private practice. He originally studied with Master Cheng Man Ching in New York City and has practiced the art of Tai-Chi for over thirty years. Robert has experience in several martial arts, including 12 years of Aikido, and has taught Yoga, Zen meditation and Kundalini.

In his study of archetypal psychology and dream work, Robert has worked and studied closely with James Hillman, Arnold and Amy Mindell, and Robert Bosnak. Travels have taken Robert around the world to study with teachers and live with aboriginal villages.

Robert offers a unique and powerful approach to the study of relationship through a martial art. In the hands of a practiced artist the adventure of learning Birthing Life Tai-Chi affirms life in depth.
