The New T'ai Chi term has just begun and I've been pondering on the benefits of practice. What can you expect when practice becomes part of your life. Look forward to befriending your body finding where it is soft and relaxed and where you are holding tension. Recognising tension is the first step in letting it go, the slow gentle T'ai Chi movements encourage the muscles to soften and relax. Moving with grace and beauty lifts the spirits and enlivens the mind. Learning to use ones peripheral vision opens us to the world and the world to us many new ways. And that's just the beginning.
