Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it wont). -James Baraz

Tai Chi for Health and Relaxation

Tai Chi Ch’uan (commonly referred to as Tai Chi) is a form of slow, rhythmic exercise which originated in China and is now practiced all over the world. For whom? As a form of exercise Tai Chi does not require any great strength and is suitable for people of all ages and all levels of physical ability. What will it do for me? Tai Chi is well known for its health benefits. The movements are performed in a slow, relaxed manner. This calms the mind and releases the physical and mental tensions of our stressful modern life-style. The regular practice of Tai Chi has been shown to:

• Improve blood circulation and breathing
