The Directors’ advice to develop our self-practice is helping to keep me strong and is my cure for daily worry during this pandemic.
The past year has been a time of reflection which has led me to realize how important volunteering within this organization is. As volunteers we have the privilege of helping others. It continues to teach me invaluable lessons in developing inner strength, listening more, talking less, an awareness of inner feelings, harmony within, connection to others and the universe itself.
Taoist Tai Chi® practice with a focus on these inner feelings reduces anxiety and I can embrace the stillness within. The Saturday morning chanting sessions and discussions deepen my understanding of the gifts we are being given.
I thank the Directors and the organization for this opportunity, for continuous learning, and for deepening my understanding of our practice.
