It is used as therapy for chronic pain, high blood pressure, depression, and limited mobility. Described as swimming through air, it is a perfect exercise for all ages and abilities. It can be practiced while seated, making T'ai Chi accessible to those with compromised physical conditions such as MS, arthritis, etc. A recent study by the National Institutes of Health found that practicing T'ai Chi can help older adults keep dormant the virus that causes shingles.

    One of the great myths of World War I is that the war was unavoidable. This is far from the truth. Even the participants at the time were well aware of the actions they could have taken to prevent the war from breaking out but simply didn’t.
