Letting Go of Worry, Anxiety and Stress
Taoist Tai Chi® practice is a powerful way to let go of worry and anxiety.
Everyone experiences stress, whether it is about work, relationships or our health. We are also constantly bombarded with disturbing news about the state of the world. How can we find relief from all this anxiety and struggle?
Taoism teaches that worry is a type of holding on, a “hooking of the heart.” Through Taoist Tai Chi® practice, as we discover how to let go, our hearts relax and gradually become lighter and softer.
We learn to let go physically and emotionally, bringing us calm relaxation, a deep feeling of well-being, openness and clarity. This helps us take care of the challenges of life while keeping balanced, healthy and joyful.
“In studying, each day you gain something. In following Tao, each day you lose something … You take possession of the world by never interfering. No matter how much you interfere, you will never possess the world.”

“I’m coming to understand the role anxiety plays in my life. When I was pretty new to the organization, I’d sometimes go to a session after a particularly bad day at work. Like as not, the practice would feel clumsy. But by the end of the session, I’d notice that I was much less anxious. The tension must have been leaching out of me as the session was going on, but without me noticing as it was happening.”
– Matt, Texas
