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 […]

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.

Arthritis Awareness

Arthritis Awareness

 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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
