When I pay attention to the silence beyond the sounds or the feeling of the spaces created as my body assumes the Tai Chi postures, my mind becomes quiet, peace descends, time ends and for that moment, there is no me, no you, no outside or inside, awareness IS.

Why do we practice?

Ting jing means "listening energy". It is the art of listening not just with our ears, but with all of our senses, this develops an incresed awareness of ourselves , others and our environment and is one of the greatest benefits we gain from the practice of Tai Chi.

The water of the spring is clear, fine like crystal.
The water of the pond lies still and placid.
Your mind should be as the water and your
spirit like the spring.
The eight truths of Tai Chi

Not in my words but in the silence
Not in thoughts but spaces
And not in my doing but in being
That peace joy and love reside

Every moment

I rarely let the word "No" escape
From my mouth
Because it is so plain to my soul
That God has shouted,"Yes! Yes! Yes!"
To every luminous movement in Existence.
