This past weekend (April 14 – 15) the Hamilton (Ontario) Branch held its very first National Workshop. There were 45 attendees representing nine branches plus five satellites. Our Commanding Officer, I mean leader, was Judy Millen—who referred to herself as a drill sergeant.
Judy worked us until the windows steamed up. The main themes of the week-nd were the dan-yu and change: dan-yus specifically as in tor-yus, wave hands, and the snake going into seven stars; change meaning both internal and external—mind and body flexibility.
We were all enriched by this Workshop and have been given a lot to take home and practice, as well as plenty to file away so we can dig it out later.
Thanks to all for a successful weekend and a great opportunity to showcase our new building to members from all over. Having a home like this is important to our promotion of the aims and objectives.
