“And suddenly your know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings”. This is a wonderful quote by Eckhart Tolle. This is how I felt when I was first introduced to Tai Chi in 1973. I had injured my back and went to see an acupuncturist. Acupuncture wasn’t even legal yet at that time and Tai Chi was just emerging in the United States. The acupuncturist told me to study Tai Chi and it would change my life. No joke there. In the beginning it was all so strange…..I was doing these movements and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Here I am 47 years later and more inspired than ever about studying, teaching and practicing Tai Chi. From the first class I was enthralled even though I had no idea why. I trusted in the magic of new beginnings and I am grateful every day for that choice. Each aspect of Tai Chi enriches my life. You get out of it what you put into it.
