"Begin with the end in mind."
-Stephen R. Covey
I had the fun task of teaching a class for Med City Tai-Chi during my vacation. Taught and run by Mike and Kim Cain, this group in Rochester Minnesota was a delight to work with. The space was huge and the time flew. We covered warm-ups, qi-gong, Golden Rooster, and the Short From as well as alchemy, and the meanings behind the Tai-Chi Sword Form Posture names.
Here are three quotes to give an idea...
"Take as much care at the end as you do in ther beginging for that is where the mistake happens."
-Tao Te Ching #64
"Let the mind direct the ch'i so it sinks deeply and steadily and can permeate the bones."
-Mental Elucidation of the Thirteen Postures
"It is both the begining and the end of the Great Work..."-Hermes Trimegistus
