T’ai Chi Chih is a mindfulness moving meditation practice that’s easy to learn. The series of 19 movements and one pose helps circulate the Vital Energy, the Chi. Practitioners experience peace, improved health and many more benefits. Our free monthly e-newsletter offers inspiration between issues of the TCC quarterly journal, The Vital Force, in which teachers and students tell stories about ways they’ve benefited from the practice. 

We have a duty to find meaning in this very life. – Justin F. Stone, TCC Originator

From a recent issue of The Vital Force:

“Just a Breath:
This respite just a breath away and so necessary.
Time now to immerse fully into the inner realm of being
(heart and soul) even for a short while,
to indulge in the quietening and stilling of the mind.
Gifts to self, but certainly not selfish.” – DK, Midland Park, NJ

Doing our best: “…Who we are has been transforming since birth and continues throughout growing up. The only constant is witnessing the changes that occur in our body and all around us…. How do we perceive the changes?… A 92-year-old TCC student said the physical body goes through many changes in the course of a lifetime. This has an effect on our identity as self and in the world. Justin used to say, ‘Just do TCC the best you can.'” LP, Prairie Village, KS

Building commitment: “Over the years I’ve become more sensitive to the TCC movements and how they affect my energy and flow, and being with a large group of dedicated teachers (at the June 2019 annual teacher’s conference) had a major impact. It felt like a spiritual upgrade. I came back more energized and committed than ever to teach TCC to anyone anywhere who welcomed it.” DM, Guilford, CT

Finding quiet: “The mind that is often in meditation carries within it a continuous current of livingness, perhaps best described as ‘suchness.’ We cannot pretend serenity; it will show in the way we meet daily situations. Each event and meeting has its own value if we can appreciate it. The way of heroes is the quiet way.”  – Justin F. Stone, from his book, Climb the Joyous Mountain
