New Little Form

Here finally is the Parting Horse's Mane video I promised weeks ago. It plays fine don't know why it's all 'stripey' but I hope it is useful in learning this new little Form I developed to help  T'ai Chi beginners come to terms with moving in a T'ai Chi way. I love that people can learn it in a few lessons and this allows them to relax into the flow of movement rather than having to focus on remembering all the postures. It gives people an opportunity to really experience the meditative aspects of T'ai chi in just a few lessons.

The First Snow


Snow on the distant Kerry mountains as I drove west heralded a wonderful day ahead.

By the time i got to Kenmare the sky was bright blue and the water still.

As I looked across the bay to Killarney I knew I'd be taking the 'long' way home.

What a view from the Gallery, it really enhances our t'ai chi practise.

Over Molls Gap I had to stop and take in the view,

Clouds melting in to the snow capped mountains,

Rust, brown and blue to delight the eye,

Stillness and beauty to nourish the soul. A day of perfection from the very beginning through the sharing of T'ai Chi to the journey home. My heart sang with gratitude for this life and the wonderful people I get to meet along my path. Blessings to you all.

Amazing Dzogchen Beara

Sunrise on Saturday morning what a perfect sight to begin our day.

Stunning views on all the walks,

 Light changing with the cloud formations,

Still and silent,

 As the evening drew in,

 And a beautiful moon shone on the vast ocean of calm.
