NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION

To encourage you in your resolution to do more tai chi, we will help get you going in 2014 with our CHI EXPRESS PASS. For $150, you get 10 Eternal Spring or Nei Kung Classes with no expiration. This pass will only be sold in January. Don't miss this!

Meditation

We move to exercise the body but we sit to take care of the mind. If you have every witnessed the suffering of elderly persons struck by brain degeneration, you have probably said, 'I hope that's not me.' Experts say we can do many things to avoid brain degeneration as we age: eat right, make appropriate lifestyle choices, exercise and MEDITATE. Don't put this off any longer. Meditation I begins January 8th. In this class, we will read Chu Meditation together and learn Grand Master Chu's 5-step meditation technique.

Pledge Drive
The Tai Chi Chuan Center has launched its annual fundraising drive. It is no exaggeration to say that the school's survival depends on the center. As the NPR folks would put it - if you enjoy the fact we are here and want us to continue, then please, if you can, make a donation to the Tai Chi Chuan Center.

Year of the Horse Banquet
This year, Chinese New Year falls on February 1st, 2014. Preparations are being made for a banquet. We will update you soon. Update: the date is not yet set but it will be much later than it has been in the past.
