Wednesday February 8, the fire department paid a visit to the new Netherlands centre. They complemented us for the results of the hard work of the last months and issued the last missing permission to accommodate members during workshops. A big hooray! This was just in time for the International Workshop, Health Recovery Week, and Grand Opening coming up in April. What a relief. We were so happy that the first weekend already over 50 instructors participated in a Development Weekend for instructors. And that Saturday night 120 members, friends, and family came together for a Chinese New Year’s dinner. That weekend we enjoyed our first Chinese-style meal, the warm showers, and the relaxing beds of this beautiful new centre. What a joy! Five weeks from now we will have the Grand Opening and everyone can experience if for themselves. Yes, you, too! Go to www.taoisttaichi.nl to register, catch a flight, get in the car, or jump on a bike. It will be fun and it will be very special. A week in which members from all over the world will join in an International Workshop, a Health Recovery Week and a Grand Opening. What a start for the Netherlands Centre. Hope to see all of you!
