Wudang Monks Bless City Hall

Wudang Monks at Austin City HallI walked over to City Hall at noon to join a crowd of about 200 faithful and curious watch China’s Wudang monks in a preview performance and blessing of the City of Austin. Sacred music was performed by priests and priestesses while martial artists wowed spectators with balletic moves.

The delegation is in Austin to share the cultural arts of Taoism and to explore establishing a sister city relationship.

Two major performances filled with the acrobatics and sword play made famous to American audiences in the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon are scheduled for Saturday, July 15 at Akins High School in South Austin. Throughout the week, a variety of workshops are also offered. Information and tickets for all events are available online at the Healing Tao Institute.
