This past weekend I had the great fortune to attend a workshop with Ben Lo up in Fairfax. While the experience was difficult and very challenging, it was also incredibly inspiring and provided a very high set of standards to push towards. There were so many gems of wisdom given by Ben that were so simple yet so deeply profound. I will be studying my notes for some time to try to really take that information and to truly learn and embody it.
Beyond just the teaching, I think there was a lot to take in and absorb about Ben Lo the human being. His humor and character were really amazing to be around and I felt there was much to learn from and emulate.
The whole workshop was really inspiring on many levels, and I left the weekend really motivated and excited for my tai-chi practice, music, and life in general. I’m grateful for the experience and will value it for a long time to come.
