Releasing our natural selves

06/02/2015

I recently read a piece by Osho – a Buddhist teacher ( posted by an old friend of mine – thank you Chris for the reminder ) about the way that meditation is simply “a device to make you aware of your real self” and realised that in our Tai Chi we are doing exactly the same thing, with our bodies and our minds – so explaining the close link with Buddhism.

We are seeking to release that movement which we could have if our body worked freely and naturally. This includes it’s free relationship with our mind and our emotions – where meditation is important in developing this relationship.

We then seek to optimise this free movement in a powerful and resilient way – by using Tai Chi exercises and practice to understand it’s capabilities and limitations.
