Generally personal growth develops through a process of change. Change is essentially linear and tends to produce only incremental improvement because most things remain fixed. Change is generated from the thinking mind.
Transformation is a multidimensional process that enables a ‘quantum leap’. Transformation is generated from the whole being and feels counter-intuitive. In transformation nothing really changes but everything is different – its a shift.
Tai Chi enables transformation by bringing us totally into the present with a new awareness of reality. This new awareness of reality is grounded in the body is enabled through the calming of the mind and is generated by listening – not with ears … with consciousness.
My own transformation has been inspired and deepened by work that I have done recently with Landmark Education.
