Each year the Tai Chi for Health Institute, created by Dr. Paul Lam, draws people from all over the country and frequently the world for a week long opportunity to take classes from Master Trainers who teach Dr. Lam’s tai chi health forms as well as many other styles such as the 73 Sun style, 24 Yang, 42 Combined forms, the 36 and this year  56 Chen style tai chi as well as Fan and Sword forms.  And each year I marvel at the focus and joy that people show as they work hard in their classes, and share their enthusiasm, their gifts and frequently their wisdom with each other.  Ego has no place here—only heart.  That alone would make this very special.  However the quality of the education (both in class and with peers) has yet to be matched anywhere else in my experience.
I come away from each time filled with new skills, and a whole new body of work to dig into, relish, and share with my students.  For a few days afterward I have more “mass than energy” but my mind is alive, and my desire to plunge ever more deeply into this work is refreshed and restored.
In my next posts I’ll focus in on some of my  experiences during this Conference.  I hope through these posts  to convey to you why so many of us  return year after year.  Each time leaves me with a  deeper commitment to share what I have learned with others  so that they might begin to taste the good health and joyfilled vibration of it all.
