One of the discussion talks during this program was the benefit of practicing more often in order to maximize the benefit to our bodies. We explored what we could put into our own daily personal practice and how that could affect our lives.
Our workshop leaders helped us to improve the timing of our moves starting with the tor yu and to be more mindful of our intention as we practice. As the program progressed we added new understanding of the movements in Taoist Tai Chi® arts and how many circles can there be: more than we know.
In our practice during the program we noted the feeling of harmony within ourselves and each other as we worked on push hands and as we completed our tasks. When we adjourned to the water’s edge for a tai chi set as the sun was setting we appreciated the fresh air and the peaceful feeling of being in harmony with the community and our environment.
