Dr Lam's Tai Chi, Health and Lifestyle Newsletter - Issue Number 172, Dec 2015

Hello <<First Name>>

Bookings will close on 15 December for my January workshop, I hope you can come to join us for sharing tai chi and friendship, it has been my highlight every year for last 17 years. If you have time to spend in the beautiful Sydney, here is a list of my favourite tourist spots which you can visit.  I was at Taronga Zoo last weekend, and it was a very entertaining visit!

Apart from great tai chi and personal development, we have fun with evening activities. For the 30 years celebration of my tai chi school we invited the Soul Drummers to add more fun, I would be inviting them to the Social Night during the January workshop. You can see this video of them, and the good time we have.

Please book as soon as possible for your favourite class, we have to give the College the final numbers of participants by the closing date.

I have a special newsletter for you this December. My recent trip was life changing as it made me realise just how important tai chi and the principles are in managing personal challenges. I have written a journal of this trip how I dug very deep to find my qi at the high mountain of the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu - one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Naturally I include many photos and three video clips. The regular articles, including Part Two of my own article, Qi, Jing and converting Jing to Qi will be in the January issue.

This Month’s Special:  Our first time ever 40% off any DVD offer has been very popular! We would like you to send more health giving DVDs as the best Christmas gift, so we are extending it until 31st December 2015!  Please use coupon code DECSP40 when ordering.

Dr Paul Lam

Mark Hoyle is a friend and an instructor at my tai chi school.  Born with 5% vision, Mark has never let it interfere with living a full and adventurous life.  He loves visiting the wonders of the world, so when he offered me a chance to travel with him to Machu Picchu I jumped at it, even though I knew nothing about it. 

After a series of busy and exciting workshops in the USA, I was looking forward to a long walk among nature in the mountains.  Five days of beautiful views and fresh air would be heavenly. I did learn something about Machu Picchu being one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but still nothing about the Inca Trail. I love walking. Some years ago after flying for 30 hours I arrived in Stockholm for the first time at 8am. Struck by the beauty of the city, I dropped my luggage at the hotel and walked until 10 pm. I thought the Inca Trail would be a piece of cake.

The first day I realized the cake was full of rocks, the entire Trail was solid granite. It is 35 km long, these rocks were cut without any metal tool, positioned so perfectly that none ever slip. It was an unimaginable task in 1400 AD. >>> the complete article videos and photos.

Yours in Tai Chi,
