My Background I have always enjoyed all things natural, even as a child. Growing up in a small farming village with six siblings, assorted dogs, cats, birds and fish, I was steeped in interconnectedness and in knowing that we are all part of a Whole.
My background in education, spirituality, and healing with whole foods led organically to my current focus of providing experiences that connect us with Oneness, oneness within and oneness with all.
I appreciate how the consistent practice of T’ai Chi Chih provides an ever deepening experience of this Oneness in a very direct, tangible way. Therefore, providing T’ai Chi Chih classes is an integral part of who I am, what I do and what is closest to my heart.
My Journey with T’ai Chi Chih In the beginning years of this millennium, while studying summers for an MA in Spirituality at Creighton University in Omaha, I saw groups of students practicing T’ai Chi Chih in the dorm commons. They told me that it gave them the energy and focus they needed for their studies.
When faced with a heavy course load in 2004, I signed up to experience T’ai Chi Chih for myself. I loved it from the very first class! It gave me the ability to work late into the night reading textbooks and writing papers and still be alert and ready for my early morning classes. Definitely a gift at age 60!
During those early years, I noticed that my daily practice gave me additional gifts: no further fibromyalgia episodes, greatly reduced arthritis pain, a lessening of PTSD symptoms and a sense of peacefulness that grounded my busy daily life. It is these experiences that inspired a consistent practice as well as a desire to become a T’ai Chi Chih teacher.
Since becoming accredited to teach in 2010, I have taught T’ai Chi Chih to many students in various settings – libraries, retreat centers, assisted living facilities, schools, private homes. I have also enjoyed teaching Seijaku, Serenity in the Midst of Activity, to my long term students.
For the last six years I have been teaching on the campus of the Sisters of St. Joseph in Brentwood, NY. This is where in-person classes will resume when the Covid-19 situation diminishes.
In-Person T’ai Chi Chih Opportunities in Brentwood will resume as soon as Covid 19 restrictions clear.
