I really did not know it could be so simple!
When I started teaching – oh, how many years ago was that? Let’s just look at the past forty, because before that I was teaching guns and bayonets.
I went abroad, to the hippy island of Koh Pha Ngan, in Thailand, where I was teaching Taoist meditation on the beach.
There was no internet!
I came back to UK.
Still, in the early part of 1990s, no internet.
Then it came, and marketing began. I kind of grew up with it. It became second nature.
But then, this year, Coronavirus!
What to do?!
Then I saw a few people were running online courses.
I decided to give it a try. I sought help, my partner Anamarta dancing in India, my son Alex, his wife Kezia.
My first effort was introducing him as a teacher of the Taoist practice, with full-on help from Kezia.
Then I needed to master Zoom.
That worked too! After a few discouraging mistakes, corrected by Kezia and Alex. with a huge load of encouragement from Anamarta..
And then, well, I ran a program teaching people Tai Chi.
And it was wonderful!
Step by step, and they are beginning to show its mastery!
I’ve started it yesterday, eight steps to learn the Form, teaching the whole thing to start with and then breaking it down, step by step.
You know, I think this is the way forward. You can join it too! Go to my web page http://www.healing-tao.co.uk/ht_taichi.htm and you will see how to join.
I’m looking forward to seeing you, and sharing this wonderful practice! Who would have thought, forty years ago teaching on the beach, to nowadays, teaching online!
