Tai Chi Starts with Stillness

“Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.” ― Laotzu.png

It is easy to begin our days somewhat mindlessly. Often, from the moment we wake, we rush headlong into all that must be accomplished. But Tai Chi offers an alternative paradigm: Wu Chi (pronounced Woo Jee), the silent stillness before the first step.

Wu Chi has been translated as "The Grand Void," a moment of profound stillness before we act. It is a state of emptiness that contains unlimited possibilities. It is the beginning stance of the tai chi form.

For your practice: Start in a posture of Wu Chi, open to what you may experience and discover.
