Relax into Lent and Spring with Tai Chi at Rock Spring

The School of Tai Chi Chuan has held tai chi classes at Rock Spring since 1978. With your help, we’ve taught many thousands of people this ancient art. We’re now renewing our longstanding invitation for Rock Springers to join us. All Rock Spring members, family and friends from age 14 and above are welcome.Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient exercise, which embodies China’s most profound concepts and principles of health and movement. It offers true harmony between body and mind. Done slowly and gently, tai chi movements have been shown to calm the emotions, focus the mind, and strengthen the immune system. Tai chi helps us relax, improves our posture, and strengthens our legs and balance. It keeps us younger as we grow older. If you can stand, you can do tai chi and benefit from it at any age!  We look forward to meeting you. To register please email instructor Peter Schwartz (

Mondays, March 20-June 5, 6:00 -7:00 p.m., Carpenter Hall

A Rock Spring tradition is to decorate the sanctuary with spring flowers for Easter Sunday.

by Laura Martin

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
