REFERENCE THE MILESTONE SCHOOL  17/01/19

Good Afternoon All,


 

I write with reference to your regular use of the Early Years Hall.


 

The floor is now in need of maintenance which includes the sanding down and re-varnishing of the whole surface. Having taken advice from a contractor this is likely to put the hall out of use for one week. 


 

To minimise disruption to your organisations and the school this will be completed during February half term week or April half term fortnight. 


Wednesday 20th February : Tai Chi. The main hall will be available to your organisation on that night

Once the dates are set I will inform you all as soon as possible. I may be able to offer an alternative room for that week if required.
 

 


 

Regards,

 

 

Adi Hargreaves

School Business Manager

TAI CHI PHILOSOPHY and THE TAO, THE WAY OF THE UNIVERSE WITHIN ...

 
A few tips for students (and teachers) on the mechanics/dynamics of what drives so many of us to "drop out of Tai Chi." How we can have more fun, and stick with it.

 
Below, read several useful insights into "why we drop out of Tai Chi" but the essence, the core, the bouillabaisse of Why We Drop Out of Tai Chi is a lack of self-compassion. We know Tai Chi is great for us, yet we drop out. We criticize ourselves for not understanding something much too large to "understand." Like the Tao, the Way of the Universe, Tai Chi is too vast, too grand, to extraordinary to understand. The Tai Chi journey makes us feel dumb, slow, uncoordinated. But, if we stick with it, we begin to "accept ourselves as we are" and we learn to not only "enjoy our bumbling path through Tai Chi" ... but also our sacred bumbling journey through our life ... seeing our journey as beautiful, precious, sacred. 

 
This self-compassion that is required of us in order to take a Tai Chi journey ends up being the most sacred gift Tai Chi has to offer ... a far greater gift than even the vastly improve balance, immune function, respiratory function, brain function, and all the other manifest (and scientifically proven) benefits Tai Chi offers. We start to realize that we were never dumb, slow, or uncoordinated ... but that we were growing, evolving, becoming something new, more expansive, more adventurous ... THIS is the Tai Chi wisdom, the Tai Chi insight ... the Tai Chi Way ... the Tai Chi journey. And in becoming more compassionate with ourselves ... we become so with the world because we realize we are part of the river of life ... not separate from it ... but part of the river, the flow, The Way.

We are excited to host a Qi Gong workshop with Bill Dancock. Qi Gong and yoga have often been compared – like yoga, Qi Gong links up the body, breath, and intention, but the two systems have different types of movement and posture – and different intention.

In this workshop we will learn about the history of the Qi Gong system and Bill will teach the Badwa Djin Qi Gong exercises.

Cost is 20

PAST EVENTS

Bewdley workshops with
Grand Master Liming Yue

The Friday push hands workshop for dedicated students went well and  a lot of techniques were shown every one came away with more knowledge on the subject.

Saturday was spent working on the Chen 11 form and The Master explained the moves in great detail and also some time was spent on the Qi Gong.

Sunday was the day of Detail into The Yi Jin Jin Qi Gong so every one now knows how to do the Form to a greater and deeper level, The Day was topped with Shen Gong which everyone was looking forward to , and enjoyed. Again Grand Master Yue was on top form and made the workshops interesting and beneficial even to those who had never done Tai Chi Before.

Instructor:
Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei
and Master Liming Yue

The Workshop was held at Walsall In the local Sports hall just off junction 11 on the M6 motorway.

The venue was organised by Peter Hornby and was attended by members of the Lo Gar Kung fu and other Kung Fu clubs, also the Tai Chi clubs that were there included a good contingent from Sunswallow. Thank you folks for the support it is really appreciated by not only me.

Grandmaster Chen Started off with the Basic Warm up exercises, but went into more detail as to the connections in the body and how to train correctly .the whole workshop was based on the importance of being loose, soft and relaxed. He also covered the basics for Tai Chi which were of importance to those who had just started out on learning Tai Chi .Watching

The Master perform part of the form was awesome! The movements fluidity and control of his body were fantastic to watch.

Every one enjoyed the event, and it was good to meet new and old friends again.
