Our Community Survey Results–Fridays on Zoom will continue!

Dear Friends, Here are our community survey results. Our Friday Zoom group will continue for the foreseeable future. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and suggestions on my community survey. Please save the Zoom link as it will be good for all sessions:

About first and third Saturdays on Zoom…

Due to low attendance, I will be discontinuing First and Third Saturday practice group for the time being. If you are interested in attending a tai chi class on Saturday morning, send me an email. I need three or four people who wish to attend regularly to revive our First and Third Saturday practice group. I am also happy to schedule a private or semi-private class on Zoom on Saturday mornings. Please let me know if you are interested.

Finding a location in Brunswick for tai chi

Many of you had good suggestions for a physical space and I will be looking into these possibilities. Unfortunately, many places, even houses of worship and grange halls, have steep fees to cover their expenses. As we are a donation-based group, I will have to look for a place that is willing to host us with the understanding that we will pay what we can. Please keep looking and thinking about this as it would be lovely to meet up again!

Mark Your Calendars for Christmas Eve Day and New Year’s Eve Day

Here are a few dates to consider: I will not be leading the practice on the morning of Friday December 17th because I will be recovering from an outpatient surgical procedure. Hopefully I will be feeling well enough for tai chi the following Friday, December 25th. This happens to be Christmas Eve Day. Even if you are traveling or you have guests arriving, do consider taking this restorative hour for yourself! By the way, if anyone wants to use our Zoom room for some tai chi on Friday the 17th, please go ahead and use the Zoom link. And please let me know how it goes.

We will be in session on Friday December 31st, New Year’s Eve Day. I will offer the Seven Precious Gestures Qigong as a way to let go of the past and set our intentions for the start of the New Year. Please join us!
