What a great send-off to 2017..

Nov 19th saw the last workshop in our 2017 programme.
During the year we have explored tai chi concepts over a number of one-day workshops. Topics have included embodying flow in form and partner work, Broadsword form and applications, sinking and rooting, chi kung deepening your practice, sensitivity and connection, and finally, expression of power: moving from the centre.

Last Sunday saw a gathering of Tai Chi players from Dublin, Kildare, Carlow and Cork, (apologies if I’ve missed any), for a great day of collaboration and fun.

Everyone took up the challenge of trying to work with everyone else in the room, we might not have quite managed it, but the opportunity to work with many partners allows us to develop a greater depth to our understanding of the art. While the exercises may be the same, differing partners offer subtly different input, which we must listen to, understand and merge with.

Is it easy? No.

Worthwhile? Certainly.

A special shout out to those who travelled from Cork, a 6:30am start so that you could make the entire workshop, then driving all the way back to Cork again. Well done team.. And of course, to those braving new waters for the first time, especially coming from afar, well done, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Take these new learnings, incorporate them into your practice, work the information with your classmates so that you might practice them together, that way you’ll learn faster, better..

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder about the Tai Chi workshop running in Clontarf on Sunday November 19th in the Clontarf Parish Centre, Seafield rd West, Clontarf.

The topic for the day will be:

Expression of Power: Moving from the centre.

Through the practice of Tai Chi we seek to attain a state of strength in the body and stillness in the mind. And while this a lofty goal, we seek to go further. We seek to not only attain this state, but to maintain it within a dynamic environment.
What do we mean?
We mean it’s not good enough to be relaxed and calm while in a quiet space, free of the pressures of the outside world. What we need is to be able to maintain that state while living our real lives. While the push and pull of family, work and community continuously seek to destabilise us, we need to cultivate a strong, stable state which we can maintain while effectively dealing will all that the outside world throws at us.

Interested??

All welcome, from absolute beginners to those with experience.
