I am very excited to let you all know, that Dean Dalrymple is very generously coming along to run Tai Chi sessions throughout the day, in the museum garden.
Dean has been practising and teaching tai chi and chi gong for 18 years. His training has taken him to Malaysia and Thailand and he has taught in a variety of teaching environments including Adult Education and Tai Chi festivals. Although he has practised tai chi as a martial art along with Malay and Philipino systems, it is as a moving meditation that Dean finds tai chi has its greatest benefit.
During Nurtured Family Nurtured Earth, Dean will be leading 40 minute sessions of gentle Chi Gong (slow mindful movements) and meditations. He'll be holding the sessions in 'The Bell Tent' which will be pitched in the museum's grounds- simply sign up for a time slot on the board outside the tent.
The sessions are an invitation to you to simply let go of tensions rather than a challenge to 'learn' what is being shown.
Sounds amazing, well, you'll know where to find me if I am suddenly missing ... x
