The right course

We’ve recently discussed one of the guidelines from Fung Loy Kok directors at our ZOOM meeting with Polish members. It was about having a notebook to make notes regarding our individual practice and the progress we make and changes we can observe while being on the Taoist Tai ChiTM training path. Włodek, a member from […]
Take responsibility 0

Take responsibility

Thanks to regular zoom meetings with the leaders of our organisation, I’ve come to realise several challenges in these difficult times when restrictions change our ordinary lives. One of the key messages for me is to take responsibility for yourself, for your training. It means trusting yourself, trusting instructions we have received and still receive […]
Opportunities through Adversity 0

Opportunities through Adversity

The adversity of this time of pandemic has given me the opportunity to realize the importance of being conscious and consistent, both in the practice of tai chi, as in the zoom and chanting sessions. Sharing all this gives way to words and emotions, such as: consistency, patience, awareness, connection, attention, observation, letting go and […]

Personal Stories / USA

Since doing sets on my own for over eight months now, an interesting thing has happened. At first it seemed strange to practice alone, without a group. I felt oddly self-conscious, even though no one was watching. Over time, though, I stopped worrying about that and just started focusing on how my body felt while […]

Chanting lunaire

A la pleine et à la nouvelle lune, le 1er et le 15 de chaque mois lunaire, 1000 participants de 26 pays chantent le Northern Dipper Scripture ensemble à distance. Ce texte sacré exprime l’interconnexion entre l’univers externe (à l’extérieur de nous-mêmes) et l’univers interne (à l’intérieur de nous-mêmes), une idée qui résonne dans l’expérience […]

Growing through the pandemic

My experience these past nine months has been of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual growth. On March 13th we were confined. I have a 12-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl with special needs, quite an experience. I would get up at 6 in the morning to practice Tai Chi. It was my moment of peace, […]

Managing stress and anxiety with daily practise

Before the pandemic, Taoist Tai ChiTM arts was something I only practised when attending a weekly class on a Friday night.  In between classes, I rarely gave it a thought. Having been suffering with anxiety and stress, I attended a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy course in February which gave me some tools to use.  This became […]

I’m grateful to the Society

I am 75 years old. I have been doing tai chi for seven years, but a year ago I had to stop attending classes because I am taking care of my husband, with senile dementia. Thanks to the years that I have been doing tai chi, today I can say that I am doing quite […]
Self-Practice is Self-Care 0

Self-Practice is Self-Care

Self-practice has been a struggle for me. My husband spent eight weeks in hospital after February 29th, and passed away in early May. During that time my focus was on him, not myself. I have found the chanting and Zoom meetings invaluable to my mental health. Not only are they very educational, they also make […]

Feeling the energy and the togetherness

On Saturday I logged on to ‘Chanting for the world’ for the first time. I didn’t chant but just soaked up the feeling and followed one of the chants that I had printed out.   I found it very relaxing and enjoyed listening to the speakers. When the chanting was finished I realised that I […]
Devoting time to improve my health 0

Devoting time to improve my health

I had been practicing more or less regularly, but I did it as a kind of homework: I practiced what I had seen at a class, at a workshop or a correction I had received. Lockdown began and with it my fear of getting infected, the uncertainty about the future and sadness about what was […]

The fog has lifted

Before the pandemic I did not practice every day and when I did, it was in most cases for physical reasons. When the confinement began I felt fear, anguish and anxiety, I do not know in what order. I felt as if I had a fist inside that  imprisoned the viscera and did not leave […]

Surprising health benefits of Taoist Tai Chi

Thanks to the intense practice of Taoist Tai ChiTM arts such as we have been able to do since last May, after confinement, the significant visual disturbances from which I had been suffering for about a year and a half, disappeared. The ophthalmologist, who had planned an operation of cataracts this year put it off […]
THE POWER OF TAOIST TAI CHI 0

THE POWER OF TAOIST TAI CHI

    Life at the moment is full of emotion and grief and Taoist Tai ChiTM arts have been an absolute saviour. My first “light bulb” moment happened when I was doing A Danyu challenge.  I did forty danyus and then the next ten slowly, really concentrating in pushing with the feet and allowing the […]
