It is such a privilege to attend international workshops in your own country, but travelling to another country to participate does add further benefits: to meet fellow tai chiers and renew friendships within the group, to enjoy extra time and take a holiday maybe – but also, if you have Tai Chi related responsibilities in your own country, then a workshop elsewhere may afford an opportunity to work/play for your own practice and development.

It is interesting and refreshing to work with other members and group leaders whom you do not know so well – some variety and maybe different insights or dynamics. Travelling overseas for workshops gives one a chance to chat to others about how they achieve their successes and manage the challenges we all meet in our branches. 

So,  in summary, I have found it a great joy to learn and practise alongside members from around the world. – Margaret Blessington (Australia)
