Review by Val Green


"I had a great time. Really enjoyed meeting people and talking about Tai Chi all week. Really enjoyed the workshops, especially Laura's lovely harmonious push hands in the mornings and Richard's exciting dynamic sword form in the afternoons."
Jean Langhorn

"Just to say it was another great event; well done to everyone involved: organisers, teachers and fellow students. As usual the quality of the instruction was superb, in particular Laura and Louis who I worked with all week."
Jim Borggren

"The weekend seemed very well thought out, offering a good balance of activities and plenty of choice. It was great to see so many practitioners from different styles coming together and really enjoying themselves."
Angela Smith

"Just would like to let you know that our time at 'Tai Chi Caledonia 06' was enjoyable and inspirational. Some of our students have already expressed their interest in attending in 2007."

From the message boards:

First off, thanks once again for a fantastic week. I feel as I did last year that I learned a great deal from the week and not just from the instructors, but also from other participants in the week.

It was just brilliant!
Thanks to our organisers, instructors, entertainers and a special thanks to the kamikaze ducks, mad bunnies and housebreaking squirrels, without which it just wouldnae be the same.

I am just back from the 10th anniversary of Tai Chi Caledonia. Congratulations for a very well organized event. Fiona did an excellent job with organizing the bands and parties. Karen was always there if needed.
Bob and Ronnie: you and your team created a great event. I will never forget this week in Caledonia!

And I will never forget the spontaneous parties in the challis! I guess this is the place and time were students get the real secrets of Tai Chi Chuan?!

From the message boards:
Thank you very much for organising Tai Chi Caledonia. It was a bit of an adventure for me, and great fun. I have known of Tai Chi Caledonia for years and now I have finally sampled its delights for myself.

It's a pretty much unique chance to meet lots of different people doing lots of different things with their Tai Chi and I found it all very stimulating.

Thanks to all the very friendly and efficient staff for organizing a wonderful Taichi Caledonia again this year!

I really enjoyed it. -This year I even learned to dance Scottish roundabouts and tasted the famous haggis (vegetarian in my case). The skies in Scotland are psychedelic and so are many of the participants!
There was also a warm Taichi family feeling and positive exchange as well in Taichi as on a relational level.

Definitly a numer one on Taichi event.
