Silencing the mind - A "How To"

May 13, 2020 / woc

Grüezi!

 

We hope that you are doing well despite this extraordinary situation worldwide. We believe Switzerland is on track to normality - as long as we all stick to the instructions of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH)

 

Above all, remain calm during these troubled times.

 

"The soul knows how to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind."

 

So sometimes you need to switch off the brain to heal the soul. This can be interpreted in hundreds of ways - as varied as life itself. We recommend the following wisdom delivered through the practice of Tai Chi.

 

Tai Chi, "the source of being, from which everything is born," is a sequence of exercises with slow, flowing movements of meditative character that originated from a Chinese technique of self-defense. In practicing it , you let the world be the world for a while and concentrate on your body and your inner self. Try it out yourself and enjoy the peace of mind and soul.
