“I'm not special. I'm patient.”
-Grandmaster Wai-lun Choi
What a glorious month so far! Spring has sprung and you can hear the leaves unfolding!
Thank you to all who made Master Choi's seminar and visit a huge success. He said it was the best seminar he ever taught, and he wants to come back in the Fall. As soon as Spring term is over at Carleton, I'll write a detailed blog for those who missed it. A big thank you to Jane and Fred who helped in so many ways, from getting the school ready to hosting lunches. Namaste!
May's schedule is the same, except we will be closed on Monday May 29th for Memorial Day. I have an exciting and fun Summer schedule that will be begin in June, and I'm making the prerequisite for any advanced Tai-Chi class completion of the 1st Section, which will allow greater access to this amazing art.
World Tai-Chi Day last month was fun with guests visiting from our satellite classes. With Margo as Scribe, we had theory, principles, and practice. A good time was had by all and we joined in the world wide celebration.
Tai-Chi North Retreat and Celebration, July 29th and 30th in Duluth and beyond. I'll publish the itinerary next month.

I finished the 10 week course of the Wim Hof Method and am pursuing the advanced training and certification. Ask me about breathing, and the cold...
Thank you so much for your appreciation, respect, and interest given to my teacher, Master Choi. He was truly moved and inspired.
