If you happen to come across this news item on the home page don’t be concerned, I’m just trying to figure out how it got here.
All the menus are now in place for next year’s big event and when I get some assistance to help me find the new home page it will be here too.
In the meantime, please be patient….
I finally got the time to complete the editing process for the images I took at this year’s Tai Chi Caledonia.

A question that is often asked, with many differing answers, “What is Tai Chi?” is dealt with in a novel way by Barry McGinlay and his team from Tai Chi Life, who’s workshops are booking up nicely for this year’s event.
When people have nothing to do they are often accused of “Twiddling Their Thumbs”, here is a short article and video clip of a simple, yet effective series of Qigong Finger Exercises by one of this year’s teachers, Franziska Rüscher from Austria.
At a recent Tai Chi Caledonia we spent an interesting hour or so considering the aspect of ‘Spirit’ in Internal Chinese Arts. What it meant for practitioners and what role this concept played in their practice. You can view the full transcript on these Taiji Europa pages and also get a short introduction to one of this year’s key teachers, Sam Masich
Ben Morris has kindly given us a sneak preview of his new book, “Singing the Bagua Classic” to allow participants to his weekend teaching slots get a clearer sense of the workshops he offers.
