Dear All,

I hope this finds you very well and looking forward to a much-deserved holiday break. As we approach the beginning of 2014, my wish for each of you is that you continue to find smart and innovative ways to cultivate peace, joy, and well-being. Further to that goal, I would be delighted to see you at a Tai Chi or Qigong class or workshop in the coming year. I am always available by phone at (905) 521-0043 or email at to talk to you about any questions you might have about classes and workshops.

All my best,
