A friend brought me to the practice of T’ai Chi Chih seven years ago, and even after the first session, I knew I wanted to become a TCC teacher. I experienced the calming of my breath, the focus of my attention, and the joy of movement. I achieved accreditation in November 2019 and am grateful for the support of the community of TCC teachers.
I am not new to joyful movement — I’m a dancer too, and have spent many years enjoying dancing with our folk dance community. I have also been attracted to meditation, so my discovery of T’ai Chi Chih, a moving meditation practice, was serendipitous. It’s a perfect combination for me, and I am enthusiastic about sharing the practice with others.
I love how the simplicity of moving effortlessly slowly develops into a deepening understanding, a mysterious enlivening that is difficult to describe in words. We are experiencing the energy of life, the chi, flowing through us, awakening our appreciation for the gift of our being. TCC is joy through movement!
I am currently teaching in a few backyards of friends in Berkeley. There may be room for a few more participants, so please contact me if interested. I prefer to teach outdoors, so if you know of a quiet outdoor space that allows for social distancing for 6-8 people, I would love to come and teach you there!
