A friendly challenge was issued to the participants of the Sault Ste. Marie branch.
In the spirit of a Retreat Week at the International Centre in Orangeville, Anne wished all of us to join her at as many classes as possible during the week of November 11, 2019.
Here’s what she discovered:
I completed the challenge, attending twelve classes from November 11 to 15.
My intention was to address some physical pain, to grow my understanding of the Taoist Tai Chi® arts and apply mindfulness to the practice. The classes were filled with encouragement, lovely sets with many people, and new acquaintances. There was a lot of new learning and old learning revisited. It definitely had a positive impact on pain and energy.
Thank you to everyone, particularly Rose and Karen who were always with me.
This was a generous act: a message to the instructors that their offering is appreciated; a message to others that this practice works; a message to myself that I am worth it.
