My interest in Qigong (an ancient Chinese healing art) brought me to the art of Tai Chi Chuan. I train daily in the Tai Chi forms that I have learned from Master Soengkono, usually in the morning before breakfast and going to work. Not only do I enjoy the practice of Tai Chi, I am also enjoying improved focus, balance, grace, strength, and energy. These benefits carry over into other aspects of my professional and artistic life. They make me more open-minded and tolerant and at peace with myself. Further, I have experienced something exceptional on a number of occasions while practicing Tai Chi… an emotional and physical sense of lightness or bliss which I cannot express with words.
