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 […]

Finding A New Grace

Everyone probably has lockdown stories to tell: here is mine. Even after years of Tai Chi, I still sometimes wondered if I could get through a set without clues from my fellow practitioners, but was determined to try and do a set each day during lockdown. I had fallen in love with Tai Chi from […]

Making The Pain Go Away

“I just wanted to tell you about something that’s happened since Lockdown. I’ve been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both hips, and was getting quite a bit of hip pain until I finally got a diagnosis. Then I remembered something that we had been told at CIT week in Orangeville, back in 2009, about how dan-yus […]

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 […]

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 0

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 […]

Sono grata all’Associazione

Ho 75 anni. Faccio tai chi da sette anni, ma un anno fa ho dovuto smettere di frequentare le lezioni per prendermi cura di mio marito, affetto da demenza senile. Grazie agli anni in cui ho praticato il tai chi, oggi posso dire che sto andando abbastanza bene. È dura ma ho serenità, comprensione per […]

I canti lunari

Durante la luna piena e la luna nuova, il 1° e il 15° giorno di ogni mese lunare, 1000 partecipanti da 26 paesi cantano separati/insieme la Scrittura del Grande Carro.

La pratica individuale è cura di sé

La pratica personale è stata una lotta per me. Mio marito ha trascorso otto settimane in ospedale dal 29 febbraio ed è morto all’inizio di maggio. Durante quel periodo la mia attenzione era su di lui, non su me stessa. Ho trovato i canti e gli incontri Zoom ineguagliabili per la mia salute mentale. Non […]

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

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

    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 […]

AWARENESS ZOOM

On November 7, the day of the planned 50th Anniversary celebrations, we gathered from all four branches in Italy for an Awareness Zoom.  Once more aware of the power of Taoist Tai ChiTM arts, of not being alone, of sharing Master Moy’s wise teachings.   It has been such an opportunity to be happy together, to share experiences, to […]

Feeling more like the me I used to be

I notice that, on the days when I have been doing the foundations, I feel driven to get up and do more the next day. When I miss out days, I have less energy to get back to it. I have also tried this week to limit myself to stop each move before I get […]
Carry on regardless 0

Carry on regardless

I have been practicing Taoist Tai ChiTM arts for a number of years. I had been encouraged by a friend to give it a go, and I’m still giving it a go. One of the wonderful features of Taoist Tai Chi is that you are always ‘giving it a go’ you can never say that’s […]
