    For a Couple Years

    Water Tai Chi

    I've been doing Tai Chi for a few months now, but at my local aquatics center.  The instructor once said to everyone not to focus on her, the water or on the surroundings. I didn't realize it until that point, I totally zone out while in that class. I guess that's the point...

    Mighty Oaks From Little Acorns Grow!

    Moving Meditation

    Straight meditation is difficult for me.  Try as I  might, I simply cannot sit...it's probably the ADD.  Tai Chi works though.  The relaxed, deliberate movements help me to relax like nothing else can do.   Adding my brainwave music to that...

    2 Weeks and Loving It

    I've been meditating for around a year but wanted to exercise as well. I joined a Tai Chi class and so far (2 weeks in) we've been doing Qi Gong really, but I already feel much more energised.

    I'm 24, but I think having kids would be best if the father is over 40, maybe even over 50. I feel like older men would be more willing to be around :)
