Come January 2018, the school will have been running for ten years. Sue and I arrived here in January 2008 and what an incredible journey it has been. I will write an article in January to celebrate the event, but I welcome some suggestions as in how we can all enjoy this special day. Let me know in the comments box below.
On another note, I would like to say thank you to all of you for a great year, even though we have all had our set backs in life, I would like to focus on what has been a great year of Tai Chi and not forgetting a huge thank you from my heart to you the students for producing a great year of Tai Chi, Qigong and meditation.
A friend of mine in England who also teaches Tai Chi, asked me what is it like teaching in Cyprus, after very little thoughts, it was like the words just flowed out of my mouth from my heart and I told him that I never expected to meet so many people who just have so much love and kindness in them. I went on to tell him that, the love and kindness I receive is so much it is at times so overwhelming it brings tears to my eyes, but in a good way of course. I am very lucky and blessed I feel. I often hear and read about other Masters talking about their students but often only about the quality of their Tai Chi, but I know that the quality of Tai Chi reflects what is in the heart, so we do produce some amazing Tai Chi. Our conversation moved onto passing away and of course how will one eventually die, I told him that I am going to be loved to death and that is exactly how I want go, ha ha I can't think of a better way, but that is obviously some time away yet, I pray.
I have delayed the usual in take of new students this year, because we have so many advanced and advancing students, I would love to spend time with you all and dedicate my time to helping you all find your hearts and go on to new grounds and tear down some restrictive borders in your thinking of Tai Chi. I am very happy with you all and love you all so much, that I know it will be a great year for us. So in January I will consider a new beginners class, if there are enough people applying to participate of course.
So thank you all from the bottom of my heart and have a wonderful summer and see you in September for a new beginning and together we start walking the path again.
Love and blessings to you all.
