Following the International Workshop organised by the Taoist Tai Chi Society of Belgium on January 19 and 20 in Helmond (The Netherlands), we were very pleased to welcome an International Intensive led by Carmen Capilla, on February 5, in Brussels. This was Carmen’s second visit to Brussels but her first visit to lead an intensive. Despite the cold, bad weather, 53 members participated, including 4 from The Netherlands, 1 from France and 1 from Switzerland. There were many beginners and new continuing members among the participants, and the two other Belgian locations, Waterloo and Auderghem (Transvaal), were well represented.
It was a bit challenging to fit all these participants in the space but working in harmony in a warm and very friendly atmosphere helped. Participants enjoyed the tea-break, during which they could taste all sorts of home-made preparations offered by members. This was particularly appreciated after a few series of dan-yu’s!
Everyone enjoyed the evening and some were surprised, going back home, to have gained so much energy.
