One Thing Tai Chi Practice is Not


Tai chi (or taiji) is not something you can learn by thinking about it or by doing some complex analysis.

Short form Yang taichi

Beginners and more experienced practitioners learn the same way … through direct experience. It’s through this direct experience, this intense, sharp focus, maintained throughout the form, with the total object of the mind, the body/breath/mind, brought totally together as one that does the teaching.

A teacher can guide you but even that only goes so far. It’s our own practice that is the real way to discover how to  move in the very beginning and later, how to chew on the subtle nuances that take you endlessly deeper into understanding.

Then we experience ourselves, through practice what we can not otherwise describe. We are all the owners of our own practice. If we want to enjoy the fruits of tai chi, qi gong and meditation, no one can do this for us.

The great thing is that our ability to deepen our practice is always in our own hands. We have the power to make our bodies stronger, our minds more sharp and clear and our lives more soft and peaceful.

I love tai chi for so many reasons. Yes, it’s beautiful to watch a real master. It feels so wonderful to do. And it’s an awesome gateway for anyone to have a better life. Whether you’re a spiritual seeker or just want to feel really good in the body and mind.

Tai chi, qigong and meditation can help you slow your mind down, so that each day feels like it opens more slowly, gradually letting go of the frenetic buzz of contemporary life.

No fancy gear required. Soft clothes and soft soled shoes of some kind (or barefoot if you like) And you can practice anywhere.

Wishing peace and happiness for all beings.

Thanks for stopping by,
