Thank you for hosting the book signing for my book Pathways to Stillness on Feb 25. Westminster Books is a very comfortable and friendly setting. You feel relaxed when you enter the store and want to linger indefinitely, or sit in the comfortable chairs in the back of the store. It is a stillness refuge. The shop is located on Queen St. in Fredericton NB.
An important lesson that I share with the students in my class—through Tai Chi philosophy and practice—is the importance of letting go. My students live, as we all do, in a culture of control, achievement—we feel we need to measure up to an external standard. In Tai Chi you cannot progress unless you learn to yield, accept and follow. There is strength in softness, gain in loss. It is okay to fail as you learn. The objective of the art is to relax and find stillness in your practice and in your life. For many students this perspective is new and I always observe heads nodding in relief and agreement. It is also a major reason why the course works in enhancing stillness, once embraced. (Read more in my book).
Pathways to Stillness Blog
My Blog is about how you can discover your own Pathways to Stillness, and why that is so valuable to your life. We will explore what it means to lose and regain our sense of “our story” in the midst and aftermath of loss—negative beliefs about aging and how we can make them more positive, and the many benefits reaped by creating a refuge of stillness within.
