Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

I’ve had breast cancer twice; once before I began practicing Taoist Tai Chi® arts and once after. The first time, I had difficulty with tightness and scarring, which made it difficult to move. When my cancer came back the second time, my recovery was much quicker because practicing the Taoist Tai Chi® arts kept me […]
Music and Jongs

Music and Jongs

I am a professional musician and Taoist Tai Chi® practice keeps me in shape physically. It helps me not get injured, keeps me elastic, and somehow keeps my body working even if I’m nervous. The hand movements are particularly good for my playing. This is all very important for me.  ~Oren
A practice for life

All generations benefit from the age-friendly activities of Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism. Seniors make key contributions to our community finding renewal, joy, growth & connection.

World Heart Day

World Heart Day

I had a 97% blocked aortic artery. My Taoist Tai ChiⓇ practice helped me mentally, to find the calmness to prepare for the surgery. The physical practice kept me moving well so I’d have the best outcome. Then after the surgery I was out of the hospital faster than many people much younger than me! […]
Arthritis Awareness

Arthritis Awareness

My arthritis is called ankylosing spondylitis and it affects my spine. When the inflammation is happening, it’s very painful.  
 I’ve been doing Taoist Tai Chi® arts ever since I was first diagnosed, and that’s what I mostly use to manage the pain.  It keeps me moving … and if I don’t move, I seize up. […]
Posture

Posture

Lorsque je prépare le repas, j’applique les principes enseignés dans les arts Tai Chi Taoïste®. Je garde la posture de mon corps alignée, droit, ce qui permet à mon thorax d’être ouvert et à mes épaules d’être détendues. Ce simple détail fait disparaître mon mal de dos. When I prepare meals, I apply the principles […]
Increased Energy

Increased Energy

I take prescription medication that suppresses central nervous system activity, making it hard for me to get up in the morning. In BC, the online chanting and Board of Directors discussions take place on Saturday mornings at 6:30 am. When the suspension of in-person activities happened, I was excited to have the opportunity to chant […]

How does one begin to recover peace of mind following traumatic life experiences? Tom’s story includes a military tour in Vietnam which left him with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and a diagnosis of cancer from exposure to Agent Orange. He discovered that with Taoist Tai Chi® arts, turning around PTSD is indeed possible. Tom tells […]
Serenity

Serenity

Au moment où toutes les classes ont été interrompues, nos directeurs ont été rassurants avec des consignes simples et nous ont offert l’opportunité de pratiquer le chanting.  J’ai voulu en découvrir les bienfaits.  Après quelques semaines, à ma grande surprise, aux bienfaits physiques (posture, concentration, voix plus forte), s’est ajoutée la joie de chanter pour […]
My Practice is my Medication

My Practice is my Medication

J’ai dépassé et transformé l’anxiété et les crises paniques avec le meilleur médicament qui soit : les arts Tai Chi Taoïste®.  Il y a longtemps, à la suite d’un diagnostic d’anxiété et trouble panique, mon médecin m’avait prescrit de la médication. Après un an de pratique de Tai Chi Taoïste® j’étais en mesure de cesser la médication. […]
World MS Day

World MS Day

I have MS and was getting petrifying attacks of paralysis. Within four months of beginning Taoist Tai Chi® arts, I could move again and my balance had improved. Taoist Tai Chi® practice is the greatest thing you can do for yourself. ~Sylvia
Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing Spondylitis

I have ankylosing spondylitis which primarily affects my spine. When the inflammation is happening, it’s quite painful.  I’ve been doing Taoist Tai Chi® ever since I was first diagnosed in 1988, and that’s what I mostly use to manage the pain and the illness.  It keeps me moving … if I don’t move, I seize […]

Developing Roots

Developing Roots

A recent online Taoist Tai Chi® arts session has given me tears of gratefulness. This purification journey of body, mind and soul is globally needed, especially in such testing times.   The generous hearts of Master Moy, the directors, officers and participants bond us together to face the pandemic.   Their kindness, heart-felt generosity, wisdom, resources and […]
