Passages

The practice of Taoist Tai Chi® arts helps me dissolve mental and emotional blockages that I have built within myself over the years. They are gradually fading away. The foundation exercises soften both my body and my state of mind. Five years ago, when I started training, I saw myself as a shy person. Now, I […]
Patience

Patience

In Taoist Tai Chi® practice, I have learned that I need to be patient, that things happen when it’s time and that there’s no point in forcing them. Frustrations and worries arise when I want too much, when I want things to happen quickly and in my own way. There is no point in pulling on […]
Problem Solving

Problem Solving

Sometimes when working on a problem I start to go in circles. If I take time out to do my Taoist Tai Chi® practice, my mind clears, my focus is sharper and I discover solutions for the problem. ~Marlene
Something for Everyone

Something for Everyone

We are all on our own unique path of transformation. Mr. Moy’s vision of helping practitioners return to a healthier and more harmonious way of living resonates deeply within me. I love that Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism promotes the principle of all cultures and religions moving together in harmony.  As an Indigenous Catholic […]
Seeing Clearly

Seeing Clearly

One day while cleaning my glasses I thought how wonderful that they help me to see peoples faces, trees, branches, and all the physical world around me. In that same moment I recognized that Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism has helped me to see life more clearly. Through the sharing of Master Moy’s teachings […]
Heart and Stroke Month – Faster and Further

Heart and Stroke Month – Faster and Further

I had a 97% blocked aortic valve. Taoist Tai Chi® arts helped me prepare for the heart surgery so I would have the best outcome. After the surgery I walked further, quicker and was out of the hospital faster than many people much younger than me! Through the physical benefits of Taoist Tai ChiⓇ practice and by being focused […]
Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s disease involves a loss of memory, and of other aspects of cognitive functioning.  Frequently, emotional well-being is also affected.  These changes are profoundly life changing both for the person with Alzheimer’s, and for their family.

Bowl of soup

Bowl of soup

I think of Taoist Tai Chi® practice like eating a bowl of soup. It literally nourishes my body. I sometimes see it as eating a good meal with friends. I feel well fed and relaxed.  ~Stefan
Hiding

Hiding

Coming out of hiding. There are times when, I too, hide behind the mist. The teachings of the Taoist Tai Chi®arts give me the tools to emerge and shine again.  ~Christine
Saturday Virtual Practice

Saturday Virtual Practice

The Saturday Taoist Tai Chi® arts virtual sessions have been instrumental in deepening my understanding of the organization, his teachings, and my own personal practice. Through these sessions and my practice I have come to realize my training not only contributes to my physical well-being, but is relevant to everything in my daily life, allowing me to […]
Finding Stillness in a time of chaos

Finding Stillness in a time of chaos

My personal practice has become about letting go: letting go of counting how many donyus I do; letting go of the habit of doing jongs only while waiting for the toast to pop or the kettle to boil; letting go of unrealistic goals. I now have an understanding of the stillness that comes from just doing Taoist […]
Letting go of resistance

Letting go of resistance

Before the pandemic, my personal practice consisted of integrating the instructions and the corrections I had received from previous classes and observing the new feeling. Now, with the wise advice of our directors to let go, to trust and to be consistent, I first investigate my sensations without precise instructions. I am more an observer […]
A path of balance

A path of balance

Eighteen years ago I began Taoist Tai Chi® practice with the goal of improving my physical well being. Tai chi was recommended to me as an exercise I could attempt even though I was extremely ill with a progressive liver disease and the many associated symptoms caused by a failing liver. I had no idea that Taoist Tai […]
A New Body

A New Body

I am so thankful to Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism® every day. I had both of my hips replaced 10+ years ago and last summer I was up on the cottage roof laying down new shingles. What I have discovered over the years is that the surgeries removed the damaged and painful surfaces, but […]
Keeping Balance at 93

Keeping Balance at 93

I am 93 years old.  Twelve years ago, I was having a difficult time dealing with the passing of my wife.  My daughter suggested I try tai chi.  She thought the exercise, and getting out and meeting new people, would help me deal with the grief. I found the Fung Loy Institute of Taoism Regional […]
Reverence

Reverence

Practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts helps me treat everyone and everything in my life with respect, thoughtfulness and gratitude. Whenever I’m having a difficult time, I turn to my Taoist Tai Chi® practice. Almost immediately I start to feel reverence again towards the people around me, my home, my garden, my cooking. ~Galina
