My first encounter with T’ai Chi Chih was a short introductory Metro-Ed class in San Jose, California. Since I wanted to continue learning and practicing TCC, I was lucky enough to find a welcoming group led by Darlene Karasik, who was an inspiring, supportive instructor. I attended her classes regularly over nearly 14 years.
I also attended yearly workshops in the Bay Area as well as several retreats and week-long intensive programs at the Mt. Calvary monastery in Santa Barbara. The camaraderie of the attendees and teacher trainers was always amazing! We learned and exchanged new insights and refinements to the movements, and I became more aware of the constant evolution of TCC practice.
In November 2019 I finally took the step to become an accredited TCC instructor. It was a challenging, but absolutely wonderful experience… and I walked away with the hope of finding an opportunity for teaching TCC to others. (Before I retired, I was an accredited ESL instructor for 20 years and I do miss the interaction with students.)
Now I live in Burbank and am writing this during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. In spite of all the inconveniences, my daily TCC practice always settles me and brings me a sense of peace. When life finally returns to normal, I do look forward to sharing the joys and benefits of TCC!
