A Better Person Through T’ai Chi

Almost All The Truth - Tai Chi

T’ai Chi on the beach.

 

When we care so much for something outside of ourselves it is essential we care for ourselves as well. To be a better advocate for human rights and environmental justice I need to be strong. To be a better mama to my children I need to be patient. To be a better writer I need concentration and free-flowing creative energy. To be a better person I need to be compassionate, thoughtful, and honest. For these things to be true, I need to be happy, balanced, and mindful.

Almost All The Truth - It Begins With A Bell

Our meditation begins with the act of listening.

 

I discovered T’ai Chi a few years ago and along with it a support system I never knew I could have. Practicing T’ai Chi and guided meditation once a week, with a wonderful retreat once a year, has made me a better person. The women in my group have made me a better person.

  1. Before my first child was born, I enrolled in a massage therapy school. One of the optional courses was 2x a week tai chi. I enjoyed it a lot! I still remember, 16 years later, the instructor talking about how people say “I should do this, or I should be “x”", and how he chose not to “should on himself” so much! *LOL*

  2. Thanks for making me read about Tai Chi on wikipedia for the last 30 minutes. :P

    Now I get your point.

    It’s also a good strategy for your online business.
