Welcome! My name is Christine Chin and I am Choy’s wife and assistant director to welcome you when you visit us for our annual gathering. We have 5 acres of beautiful organic gardens which includes a wooded valley with a stream and ponds, our circle vegetable garden, the 60 foot polytunnel where we grow the Beloved Potimarron! and the swimming pool (‘polypool’). Plus a whole lot more …..
History of the School
The Rainbow Tai-Chi School Programmes started with its first Foundation Teacher Training Course in France in 1982. Seventeen years later in 1998, the founder, Peter Chin Kean Choy published the book, ‘15 Ways to a Happier You’. The School run at various centres in the Midlands, in France, in Conrwall and Devon celebrated its 10th year in 2008 with 50 beautiful participants coming from different parts of the world to meet at the Summer School.
Tai Chi & Nature
The Heart of Tai Chi is connected to Nature so practising outside with the trees, wind, flowers, birds, streams, ponds, sunshine and rain enables us to connect directly with the heart beat of nature and experience a sense of oneness with the earth which we often ground by gardening. For example, long term students each plant their own tree to symbolise their own commitment to growing themselves.
