Tai Chi is a great help in these times. The moving meditation—breathing and slow movements bring you to the present moment— which helps to calm the monkey mind that constantly wants to go to fearful future thoughts. Practice whatever you can often.
The Tai Chi Wisdom section of my book Pathways to Stillness will give you helpful guidelines. I highly recommend you check out Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.
In this special episode we hear the story of my wife's career change from government to operating a bed and breakfast, and how it has brought her meaning, happiness and a new pathway to stillness. It is also a story of how older adults can age meaningfully.
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.
