July Practice Notes: It's all About Balance

Life seems so chaotic at times, doesn't it? The noise, pressure, demands of daily life can be overwhelming, with no relief in sight, and a promised vacation or hour to oneself remains ellusive. That's where something like tai chi can help. The few moments per day needed for practice can become not just a refuge, but also a model for how to go about daily life, with calm, perspective, focus, and balance. If you can perservere in creating those pockets of time for tai chi, you can then let those skills infuse your whole life.
