Master Rasaji at Orange Park Lodge. Open to all.



Coming once again to Orange Park Lodge on Wednesday 7/3/2013, Master Lama Rasaji! He will be sharing more about the mysteries and ancient truths of Tai Chi Gung.


We ask for a $10 Donation to the Grand Master’s Charity which is the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory an internationally recognized biomedical research institute.


No matter your state of health, you will benefit from and enjoy this evening with Master Rasaji. He will lead in some very simple but powerful exercises and teach you how to release the tension from your body.


According to the Lamas of Tibet, 3300 years ago, a master of Hatha, Pranayama and Kundalini Yoga living in India travelled to China. This profound adept, known in India as the great sage Boganathar, was determined to discover the true connection between Nature and the physical body.  After practicing his asanas for many decades in China, he noticed that the flow from one stance to the next was very important. If done properly, this movement could milk the energy and prana of Nature into the physical body.  He lived so long that generations passed. His Indian roots were unknown. He became known in China as Lao Tzu.  From there, he moved on to the Himalayas where he opened his first school of Tai’ Chi Gung.  Rasaji lived and trained with the Lamas at this original school. The direct knowledge and understanding of Lao Tzu, the secrets of this profound system of health and regeneration have been passed down through the ages in an unbroken lineage from the original master. These are the principles of regeneration that Rasaji teaches to his students.


We will begin promptly at 6:30 PM. The session will last approximately 90 minutes.

Dress comfortably to move around and bring water.


See you there.

An Evening With Mark Brunell

Keynote Speaker Mark Brunell

Brother!! Have you shared this information with your friends and family? This promises to be a very rewarding and inspiring evening with one of the Greats of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Mark Allen Brunell (born September 17, 1970) is a former professional American football quarterback. He was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round of the 1993 NFL Draft. He played college football at Washington.

Brunell was a three-time Pro Bowl selection with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has also played for the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, and New York Jets. In 2009 he earned a Super Bowl ring as the backup quarterback and holder for the Saints’ Super Bowl XLIV winning team.

Hugh Greene, President and CEO Baptist Health has noted that, “Through the Brunell Family Foundation, Mark and his wife, Stacy, have been active supporters of Wolfson Children’s Hospital for over a decade and have contributed more than $1 million for children receiving pediatric and neonatal intensive care. In addition to their generous financial gifts, the Brunell’s have also made frequent visits to the hospital, showing their huge personal investment improving the lives of children and their families. We are so grateful to have their support in our community.

Brother, help get the word out about this event. Get as many people as you can to come share this truly uplifting and inspiring evening. Make a commitment to ask a minimum of 20 people over the next two weeks. Don’t restrict yourself to lodge brothers. Ask everyone. Talk to people at church, at the gym, and when you go to a restaurant for supper. Let’s get as many people as we can to come hear the inspiring words of this highly successful man.
