There were 120 participants from 8 countries who gathered in Colchester for a two-day international workshop over 9-10 July, including a good number attending their first workshop. Welcome!
Workshop leader Carmen Capilla led us in reviewing the danyu, and the first four moves of the set, with the emphasis on moving grad – u – al – ly.
Sunday morning, before the workshop programme, we started with chanting the Ten Thousand Buddhas sutra.
The kitchen volunteers certainly had a good time looking after the tummies of the participants.
More tai chi practice, more quiet standing, and the yearly formality that is the Annual General Meeting of the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Great Britain.
The workshop closed with a surprise for Carmen: birthday cake and a song.
And 120 participants disperse, to practice at home, work on what we discovered about the Taoist Tai Chi® arts, and perhaps meet up again before too long.
