Taoists consider Tai Chi as one of the highest forms of Moving Meditation, harmonising Yang and Yin, and Qigong as Standing Meditation, for grounding and rooting.

How much time to spend in meditation and exercise, how to integrate the practices into daily life, especially the sexual practices, and how to introduce these to partners ranging from sceptical, to inhibited,  to plain jealous?
Want some answers?

Inner Smile: A smile to my mum, long gone, and my dads – I had two, one who started me off before leaving this world, and his brother who took over for the hard part.  However many you had, smile!

Healing Sounds: seeking to transform impatience into love, worry into serenity, depression to courage, fear to gentleness, even anger into kindness, thinking of Mantak Chia’s encouragement “every day we get many chances to forgive”.

Iron Shirt grounding, rooting and centering taught me how to take a push, physically in the first instance but, as I progressed through my training, extending my ability to take an emotional push or withstand financial pressure.

Few choices need to be made, the right way seems to unfold. Its not always what my rational mind would have chosen.

Come by and learn more: 12th and 13th of May, 10.00 to 4.30pm, at 3 Holmes Road, Kentish Town, NW5 3AA.  This workshop is for Men Only – a Ladies version is on the same weekend starting on the 11th evening.

Amazing Grace!

How sweet it sounds!
Our vision is to develop a team of Tai Chi Teachers to expand awareness of this wonderful practice and the many benefits it can bring to people of all ages and backgrounds. Just think, it could be YOU as the Agent of Change for the Better in the lives of others. Can’t you almost feel the satisfaction already!

But you’re not a Tai Chi teacher!  In fact, you have no experience of Tai Chi!  Maybe its something you have seen, that wonderful glow on people doing it, the satisfaction of mastering the form, the simple ability to stand straighter, be stronger.

Tai Chi can be for you too!  Join us as a Beginner.  If you want to know what’s involved, just go to our page here, and read all about it.  Scroll down to where you can join, and join!
