Participate in a philosophical discussion group on a different topic each week. The conversation is not directed toward consensus nor is it a debate to be won; the objective is to share everyone's knowledge in the group and to widen and illuminate the subject. Topics will include questions like the following: Does competition bring out our best or our worst? If you aren't truthful and you don't get caught, did you do anything wrong? Does language limit creativity? Who is responsible for understanding, the speaker or the listener?

T'ai Chi Ch'uan (Grand Ultimate fist) is an ancient system of self-defense and exercise. Practiced at a very slow pace, with control of one's body as the goal, it offers many benefits to those who practice regularly. It improves balance, enhances breathing efficiency, lowers blood pressure, promotes flexibility, decreases heart rate, and improves blood circulation and posture. All the organs in the body are gently massaged while practicing, and the cardiovascular system, the heart and lungs, are especially benefited.
