Self Practice

I have gained a deeper understanding of the organization and Master Moy’s teachings after attending the virtual sessions for the last two years. A simple message has guided us: self practice. Although the message is simple, to carry it out requires diligent practice. When I first started to practice on my own, it was hard […]
Patience

Patience

À pratiquer les multiples arts internes Tai Chi TaoïsteMD, j’ai appris qu’il me fallait être patiente, que les choses arrivent quand c’est le temps. Ça ne sert à rien de les forcer. Les frustrations et les inquiétudes surviennent justement quand je veux trop, quand je veux que ça aille vite et à ma manière. Il […]
Breaking Through

Breaking Through

By practicing Mr. Moy’s teachings of constancy and patience, something in me that has been stuck is finally beginning to move. When I was young in a colder climate, I loved to watch the water flowing under ice in the ditches in spring, just before the full melt. That’s the feeling that has come as […]

Avec le temps, jour après jour, l’eau creuse son lit. Avec le temps, jour après jour, la pratique quotidienne des arts Tai Chi Taoïste® polit chaque pierre de mon chemin.

World Stroke Day

World Stroke Day

14 years ago I had 9 strokes.  I couldn’t stand, walk, talk, see or eat.  I had to start all over again. My Taoist Tai Chi®  practice has helped me to build balance and strength, to lose fear and to do all the functions of life. It has given me my life back!~ Sasha
Chemine Ensemble/Together Apart

Chemine Ensemble/Together Apart

Quand je pratique les arts Tai Chi TaoïsteMD seule à la maison, je me sens soutenue et connectée au groupe. Ça n’a pas changé même après près d’un an et demi de confinement en raison de la pandémie. Je ne suis pas seule parce que je sais que nous sommes des milliers à faire la […]

How slowly my garden grows,seemingly unnoticeable, sometimes I am impatient,but I wait and observe, there is change,colour blooming to the surface, texture unfolding, fragrance releasing,it can’t be hurried,it is  the like the Taoist Tai Chi®way. ~Lin  
Calm/Centre

Calm/Centre

Dans ma pratique Tai Chi Taoïste®, je sens que dans le mouvement, le centre reste calme. Solide, bien ancré. Comme un arbre aux racines profondes qui accueille le vent en ami. In my Taoist Tai Chi® practice, I feel that my center remains calm, solid, well anchored. Like a tree with deep roots that welcomes […]
Forever Young/Éternellement jeune

Forever Young/Éternellement jeune

J’ai 89 ans.  Pour moi, les arts Tai Chi Taoïste® sont une méditation en mouvement qui m’apportent tout ce dont j’ai besoin pour me sentir bien. Je peux faire ça pour moi! Quand je pratique l’ouverture de la cage thoracique et l’étirement de la colonne vertébrale, j’aime ressentir ce qui se passe à l’intérieur de […]

Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light

Out of darkness comes light:  If the quarantine, lockdown or isolation due to Covid-19 is the darkness, then the light is the cultivation and growth of my personal practice of the Taoist Tai ChiⓇ arts. While our in-person sessions are on hold, the continued urging by the leadership of Fung Loy Kok Institute of Taoism […]
Quietude

Quietude

J’ai besoin de quiétude, d’harmonie pour que les changements se produisent à l’intérieur de mon être. Mon corps se prédispose alors à recevoir de nouvelles consignes, de nouvelles directions, pour enregistrer le mouvement, la sensation, le changement intérieur.   I have calm and a feeling of harmony to allow changes to take place within me. […]
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 […]
