Tai Chi Program
It certainly has been a great year for the Tai Chi Center of Chicago. Some of the milestone highlights included our continued involvement in the Ravenswood ArtWalk, featuring demonstrations and a fantastic display of student artwork. This was also the first year taking part in celebrating World Tai Chi & Qigong Day here in Chicago.
I’m really impressed with the growth and progress of the students themselves. As both student at the school and a teacher of one of the introductory classes, I have the opportunity to observe them learning each week. The questions we are hearing from the ongoing (and beginning!) students is a clear indication of their internal growth; the support they give by continuing their investigation in the introductory classes reinforces the foundation of the school as well.
Next year should prove to be very exciting as well. Not only do I expect to see more new faces every month, but I also look forward to the ongoing students exploring their practice by learning new forms. 2010 shall be a very good year, indeed.
