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 […]
Peace of Mind

Peace of Mind

La quiétude n’est pas facile à atteindre pour moi. La pratique Tai Chi Taoïste® et le lâcher prise m’aident à y avoir accès et à l’intégrer en profondeur. Attaining peace of mind is not easy for me. Taoist Tai Chi® practice and letting go help me to access and integrate it more deeply.~Christine
Trust yourself and just Do

Trust yourself and just Do

Taoist Tai Chi® practice is just so part of my life that it affects everything, including my art.

Moving Meditation

Moving Meditation

J’ai appris que la pratique Tai Chi TaoïsteMD est une méditation en mouvement. Lorsque je suis dans le moment présent, je ne pense plus à rien, mon corps détendu suit le mouvement et mon esprit est léger.

Peace and Calm

Peace and Calm

I spent a year in Thunder Bay and frequently did my Taoist Tai Chi® practice as I overlooked Lake Superior and the beautiful land formation called Sleeping Giant or Nanabijou.  The practice opened me to the vastness and beauty of the landscape, and I felt a oneness with nature and a deep peace and calm […]

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 […]

On Chanting

On Chanting

I was first introduced to chanting a couple of years ago at a retreat week, and I wasn’t much taken by it. However I didn’t want to be separate from the group, so I joined in. I continued to chant on Sunday at my Toronto location. I found it soothing before the session began. When […]
