As I write this, Ed and I are fortunate to be in Wollongong, Australia, just south of Sydney, playing tai chi with our teacher, Dr. Paul Lam, and his master trainers. Dr. Lam is celebrating his 20th year of annual workshops here in Australia. For the past 21 years, his dream has been to promote global health and wellness. Today, his programs have reached over 10mm people around the world. The benefits have included fall prevention, lowered blood pressure and improved flexibility, among many others.

We arrived on January 6 and are scheduled to leave on the 20th. That’s two weeks of tai chi, each day, for most of the day. What a blessed way to begin 2018!

This brief interview provides a glimpse into what tai chi has done for our lives. We are grateful!
