T'ai Chi Chih Terminus

It was a wonderful day for an outdoor practice! After several days of rain, clouds, and--brrr--cold, today's weather was a delightful surprise.

Our TCC gathering was held at the terminus of a dead end road with a huge, ancient barn presiding over the property. We fashioned our TCC circle of eight in the middle of the road that led to the house and barn. It was a sun-filled area and there, within its blue-skied boundaries, we knew we'd stay warm.

Then, we moved quietly through our practice. Early on, one member of our circle pointed to an eagle flying overhead. Directly after completing Cosmic Consciousness Pose, we walked to a special place on the property, a medicine wheel, and re-formed our circle to bless the wheel and circle the energy.

A delicious potluck followed. While we ate we talked and talked and talked, balancing out the long minutes of slow silence that surrounded us during our TCC practice. What a lovely way to share the Chi and enjoy a beautiful fall day. One month from today--exactly--our next t'ai chi chih class session begins.
