There they were, finally, the 112 participants from eight different countries, joining in for the first International Workshop ever held in The Netherlands Centre in Helmond. This Centre was purchased last May and within three weeks all local classes moved over there. It is amazing how much alive an empty box can become when the Taoist Tai Chi Society moves in. It feels like home in sharing the tea, coffee, nice pastries, wonderful food twice a day, the stories and of course the practising of Taoist Tai Chi. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we sometimes forgot to smile during our practice. Luckily workshop leader Andrew Hung didn’t, and every time he said GOOD MORNING we smiled and relaxed even more. And he didn’t stop saying this. So the GOOD MORNING lasted all day long. Would you like to know how this feels? In November, we will host a five-day International Instructors Workshop and we might celebrate the Grand Opening of the Centre as well. And guess what, you’re all invited. So this big smiling GOOD MORNING won’t stop. And it is very contagious…….
