I stumbled upon Tai Chi many years ago when a friend of mine suggested I give it a go.
After my first lesson I was hooked for life.
It’s a fascinating journey which still continues because there are still higher mountains to climb in learning and teaching Tai Chi.
I don’t think I will ever reach a destination in Tai Chi but that’s okay because I don’t feel the need to ‘get there’ anymore.
Entering the many gates to continue the journey makes it a challenge and it’s also worthwhile from a health and self defence point of view.
Lately I’ve been reflecting on what Tai Chi means to me. What is it about it that resonates the most that encourages me to continue practicing and teaching?
Well, I feel it’s a gift that has been given to me. As it has been given to many many others over the centuries.
And I feel the responsibility to give the gift of Tai Chi to as many people as possible.
Because if you do then your Yin Yang energies are balanced in regards to giving and receiving.
That to me, in simplistic terms, is what Tai Chi is all about.
