An introductory session of the Kennebec Taijiquan Association will be held at the Thomaston Public Library Wednesday, June 18, at 7 p.m.

The purpose of the association is to offer the opportunity to learn a "T'ai C'hi" long form and to practice it with others who enjoy taijiquan. Life can be a challenge in many ways. The long, slow practice of taijiquan, which deepens across the years, brings profound satisfaction and surprising benefits.

One begins by learning the form and then slowly adds the principles of practice to a daily effort of two long forms. For those who are social, the association gives participants the opportunity of meeting others to practice with. For those who are dedicated, it gives them the opportunity of learning how to deepen their practice. There are no fees, no dues.

There is no hierarchy in the association, no teacher-student relationship. Those who enjoy taijiquan are here to teach those who wish to learn. Whether completely new to taijiquan or would like to share the practice with others, the Kennebec Taijiquan Association welcomes everyone.
