Tibetan Monks in Newcastle

We went to see the Tibetan Monks at the Civic theatre today.
They had really just begun the mandala that they create in every city that they go to.
Two monks work on it at a time, in shifts, and when there is a big crowd then you may get four working on it. I guess it also depends on whether they are on track with its completion.
It was very peaceful sitting and watching the monks take on this task.
To do it over and over and over again....
It would drive me insane.


But then I am not a monk.

I went to my next tai chi lesson tonight.
Learnt another move.
It looks so simple....yet it is so complex.
I also learnt the qi gong walk ....a special walk that you do with a double breath in and one exhale out. It is supposed to be excellent for cancer patients cause it floods the body with oxygen.


I am learning not to underestimate this ancient art.
