|Visualization, breathing, movements, balance and flexibility, relaxation, feeling centered. THAT IS THE POWER OF TAI CHI: The power of imagination makes us infinite. - John Muir|
WORLD TAI CHI DAY is just around the corner. April 28th at 10:00 AM.
I hope you can find a group to join on that Saturday to help spread the healing energy around the world. Let''''s visualize together the energy beginning in New Zealand at 10:00 AM and flowing through all the time zones to our own many hours later. For more information check out the web site: http://www.worldtaichiday.org/
You can also do your own little bit, alone, wherever you are at 10:00 AM. Focus on the flow of energy, the inner peace,and our connection to the beautiful earth. That works just as well. There are over 900 groups participating in the US. You can make your own group or join another.

I had a very rewarding spring visiting schools in New York City. What a pleasure to see the focused, calm faces of the nearly 2000 students I met. The teachers, about 125 of them, were very relaxed, too. Even at High School level. One group from a Bronx High School is considering going to the big event in Central Park for World Tai Chi Day. (east side of the park, north of 97th street)
I will be back in NYC at the end of the year for the closing events of the School Wellness Council and a final Professional Development. It is always a pleasure to work with the children.
This summer think about Kripalu Tai Chi for Kids summer camp. It is great weekend in the Berkshires - a weekend of focus, fun, fitness for kids. We learn Tai Chi tools to enhance self-control, relaxation, focus and self-esteem. Check out the web site for more information. It is in mid- July. You will love it there, too. You''''ll find your own relaxation and focus, fresh air and connection.

As you continue training, inspiring and motivating young people you might enjoy this quote: Children have to be educated, but they have also to be left to educate themselves. - Ernest Dimnet
Tai Chi gives us those quiet moments when we can be in touch with ourselves and learn so much.
