A new look for the face of stress-reduction in Chicago


Our new logo designed by David Eastman

I’m pretty excited to announce that we’re really close to nailing the new logo for the center. It’s been really interesting to work with David, who brought a lot of sensitivity and insight (and determination) to getting the job done. I wanted to move away from the yin yang that it seems every taiji school on the planet uses, as being a little cliché. But, I still wanted to maintain some representation of it since it is such a deep and central concept to taiji practice. There was also a desire to keep the look simple. Additionally, I wanted to try to convey one of the other ideas at the heart of our practice and teaching- that is a notion of single pointed mind. So, all together wanting a clean look that would also have a touch of the energy and determination that is also an essential part of developing daily meditation and taiji practices.

I’m very grateful to David for his great work. So, we may see some final tweaks before we call it done for sure. But right now, here it is.

Let me know what you think. And of course, we hope you’ll come visit us and get your own practice started. We all know there is plenty of stress in Chicago and no time like right now to start getting rid of it.
