The Pleasure of “Zhi Yin” 知音
December 2, 2010
It is not everyday that I get to speak Cantonese now that I am living and teaching in Europe, so it was a great pleasure to have met up with Eli, who hails from New York with a Cantonese speaking family and now, like me, living and teaching Taijiquan and Qigong in Europe.
In the photo of our Nantes Qigong workshop she is standing second from the left of the photo and has a great studio full of sunshine and a feeling of health and happiness in Mulhouse, France. I love teaching, one gets to meet all sorts of interesting and talented people, and when it is my mother tongue spoken, it is a great bonus, no wonder the Chinese called this pleasure of hearing from from your home town, “Zhi Yin” 知音 (one who knows the voice spoken).
Thanks for sending me the photo, Elis, I hope we will meet up again one day.
