The 40 Hour Jammin was a great success, with some of Australia’s best musicians, who played music for over 40 hours. This Jam was created by Shenzo (outstanding violinist from Brisbane) to raise much-needed funds for Motor Neurone Disease. A huge thank you to all our Tai Chi friends who donated to this very worthy cause. The Academy raised over $3,000 dollars (second highest fundraiser!), with $36,000 raised in total from the event. Here’s some more about the Tai Chi part of the event: although the weather was against us doing a couple of the scheduled sessions, we still managed to do Tai Chi to the accompaniment of many different musicians and instruments! Over 40 participants attended the Townsville workshop, where we played Shibashi Qigong to the soothing sounds of the violin and cello. Sunrise Tai Chi was not so spectacular as far as the sunrise was concerned, it was cloudy and extremely windy, but with Vinod (bamboo flute), Shenzo (bass), Charlie (percussion) and Andrew (violin) playing, the session was amazing. The sword demo accompanied by Kay on accordion was popular, and Horseshoe Bay was great for Tai Chi and Qigong at the market day. To top off the brilliant day, we witnessed a picturesque sunset to the sounds of an amazing jam and the amazing visuals of the fire show on the beach just after dark.
